Stayed here overnight meeting friends. Hotel had easy parking, very clean rooms, and helpful front desk. Snowed while we were there which limited walking to restaurants a few blocks by. Neighbors late night a bit loud but hotel staff monitored the situation without us having to complain. Would definitely stay again. Great rates.

Free wifi, free parking, big full free breakfast (with hot items like eggs and bacon), two-room suites with fridge and microwave, 5 minute walk to subway, 5 minute run to Charles River running paths, what more could we ask for? Will definitely recommend this location to others.
