Flew from SF to Boston on Dec. 23rd to visit the family in CT for XMAS..
Flight landed in Boston at 9pm, so I had to stay in the city until I could catch a train to my hometown (New London) in the morning.
I can't believe I had to pay over $100 to stay in this dump for one night..
They said "Because it's the holidays, we charge holiday rates" --- are they freakin' kidding ?? It's a Y --- not the Mandarin Oriental...
This place is WAY OUT in the boondocks near the old Navy Yard.. There's a little shuttle bus that you can catch in the adjacent office complex to get to the T --- if you rely on public transit... and in Boston, who doesn't ?? So, that was a plus..
The counter clerk looked a little shady and I wasn't sure if I should give my credit card number to this guy -- but, I chanced it anyway...
The bed was dirty, the shower didn't work very well, and the hot water ran out... but, no bedbugs or roaches though..
No food ANYWHERE except for some cheap Pepsi machine and a few bags of chips in a candy machine...
For $125 smackers I expected better.. But it was late, it was the holidays, and I was tired from a LONG cross-country flight...
I felt violated after checking out..
