The hotel itself is interesting because it used to be a transit authority center and then a School Commission building for many years. Being a teacher I thought the latter was funny.
The rooms were filled with amenities, the gas fireplace warmed us up. The...More
I’d like to share my “travellers rule of thumb” in this forum. And that is: if the hotel wifi is poor, the rest of the services are too. And in this case the wifi was erratic and for one day even completely unavailable. And once...More
It honestly mystifies me that this hotel has gotten so many good reviews. Our experience was terrible. We were booked for six nights, and we only stayed two -- we left as soon as we could find availability at another hotel.
Our room was cramped,...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
