We stayed at the Sewall when having out-patient surgery that took several days.We booked for one night. In the middle of the night, the wound bled, ruining a pillow and staining the sheets. They were quite gracious about the trouble. We checked out and returned to the hospital.
When it got to afternoon, we realized we should stay another night. We called the 888 # and got the sister inn across the street (The Bertram Inn). I explained we had stayed the previous night and were hoping a room would be available for that night. They gave us an upgraded room at the price of the basic.
When we arrived that evening, they had puttowels on the pillows and provided spare sheets, if we needed. Among two inns and changing staffs, they remembered who we were and made an extra effort to accommodate our needs. Service doesn't get any better than that.
In addition, the beds were quite comfortable and the continental breakfast featured one hot item each day. They also have complimentary snacks - cookies, fresh and dried fruit, beverages - throughout the day and evening.
The inn is 4 blocks from Dana-Farber, Brigham and Womens, Beth Israel and other hospitals. It is also close to Fenway. Plus, it's walking distance to JP Licks - great ice cream and the walking back and forth reduces the guilt.
I'm not looking forward to follow-up surgery, but a return to the Sewall will make it bearable.
