The Bedford Regency is a typical boutique hotel. I do not mean that as a negative, but only to illustrate that it is a hotel you choose because it is a boutique hotel and not for many other reasons. I have stayed at this hotel a number of times and the check in process is always an event. On one occassion the young Japanese girls, although curteous, were impossible to understand, another the check-in girl argued with me regarding the type of room and room number I wanted (I had booked weeks prior for a specific room - in my opinion the back side rooms 37,38 and 47, 48 are the best - they have some partial views of the harbour and are quiter). The best experience was the latest one, the manager was very efficient and helpful, I hope he is there the next time if visit.
The rooms are throw-back but nicely appointed, each have working fireplaces and windows that open to allow a nice breeze off the harbour. The cleaning staff do a very good job, the rooms are always very well maintained. The hotel is directly on Government Street and steps from Bastion Square. The Irish Times Pub, Bard and Banker pub, to name but two, and Pescatore's Seafood Restaurant are all easily walked.
Parking is, pay yourself in the impark lot behind the hotel (expensive) or in the hotel lot (still impark) about a block and half away. The elevator is so slow, it seems quicker to walk the flights of stairs!
If you are used to pillow-top beds, flat screen tv's, and a good internet connection, then this hotel is not for you. If you like character hotels, that are not 'cookie cutter' styles, then this is your hotel.
