The staff really makes this place. Everyone I dealt with was super friendly and helpful - they had some good discounts on touristy stuff to do that I took advantage of. Great location, you can literally walk to any major tourist spot in Boston, or easily access public transportation, which on my two day visit was quite good. The buffet breakfast is good, certainly not gourmet, but for the choices and amount offered I can't complain. The building is a little noisy. From my room on the 7th floor, I could hear water running through pipes, the elevator, and people on the street even with the window shut, but I did have an awesome view of the Boston skyline. That being said, if you just need a place to sleep and get breakfast (included) then this place is perfect. I definitely recommend staying here if you want to stay in the city but can't afford a hotel.
