The room was filthy!! The light fixture in the bathroom was hanging like it was about to fall down. The ceiling in the bathroom was also leaking from the bathroom above. Not worth the $ or the unhealthy exposure to who knows what. Worse than a tenement. Checked out a day early because it was so awful. The manager Janet...

I chose this place because I wanted to be in walking distance to the area around Kendal Square in Cambridge and it was perfect for that, being so close to Harward Bridge. It's also only 10-15 minutes walk to Boston Common. There is also a T station only a few minutes away and there is a rental bike station just...

We stayed on the top floor in the Marathon Room. Loved our private deck that overlooked Beacon St, great for coffee in the morning or wine in the evening! Unit had a small fridge and microwave and it's own small washroom. We were able to walk to Fenway(10 min) or downtown(30mins or so, not sure as we made many stops)....

If exposed pipes, truly bad workmanship, cast-off furniture, and plastic-encased mattresses are your thing, the Adams Room is for you. Outlets? Good luck! BUT...this historic Brownstown does look like a movie set, and some of the architectural features are amazing. The staff is very accommodating, and it's an easy and picturesque walk to Fenway. I just felt like I was...

We arrived just about 7:00 P.M. when the registration desk closes. We had been emailed directions regarding the use of the front door combination lock. It was 44 degrees and a driving rain. The lock would not work. We observed several other guests having trouble with that lock during our 4 night stay. We had a second floor gigantic room...

I stayed here because I wanted a unique location and not just a chain hotel. Not many people have cars and they are not really needed because within easy walking distance (3-6 blocks), every kind of transportation is available: taxis, light rail, bus. Verbally contract with the cab drivers. There are regulations on how much they can charge in certain...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and would definitely reccommend. I liked staying in a brownstone and thought the themed rooms were a really cute touch. For me, the place had a real personality and added to our Boston experience. The location is GREAT - we could walk everywhere we wanted. For our first day when we...

We spent one night here in one of the coolest rooms up on the fifth floor. We were lucky to get the room as it was marathon weekend. Had spent first night in Arlington for a family memorial service and wanted to stay in town on our second night. The location is perfect: one block from river and Esplanade where...

This is a fantastic place to stay to visit Boston. It had great access to transport and was within walking distance of Fenway, City Centre and Harbour. The room was large, clean and well presented. The shared bathroom was clean and more than usable. Would highly recommend

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
