How to Get There
This hotel is located in Back Bay area. Few blocks away from Copley square , big Prudential mall and T station is also near by. All within 10 mins walking distance.
Breakfast is limited, but there is a bakery nearby "Flour" .
Found this place last-minute when most Boston hotels were booked. Nice location near the Prudential Center, and very nice suites (suitable for extended stays with small kitchenettes). The staff was super helpful.
The hotel is quite close to the city centre and offer a series of amenities such as snacks, coffee and fresh water 24h. good breakfast with nutella, bagels, bread and milk.
A nice place to rest.
I recommend it.
A reasonably convenient location, lovely neighborhood, but at almost $400/night, I was very disappointed. In our "studio" suite, the good parts: Roomy bedroom, attractive overall, and nice to have a fridge, toaster, plates and glasses. HOWEVER, let me count the ways in which this place disappointed:
1. The bed was incredibly squeaky. Not from springs, but from some kind of squeaky foam "pillow top" that is integral to the mattress. When I asked about it, I was told the mattresses were all recently replaced, and were all the same, so there was nothing to do but try not to move too much while trying to fall asleep. Each roll over resulted in a sound like fingernails on a chalk board.
2. The shower has good and adjustable pressure (thank you), but the angle of the flow is not adjustable. As it's currently installed, the water spray only reaches down to about four feet above the ground - around as my armpits (and that's if I backed myself all the way against the wall at the back corner of the stall). Any part of my body below that could not be washed by flowing water. I think the two-room units have larger shower stalls, so perhaps that's not an issue there, but in our room, there was no way to really shower clean (unless you prefer a wet washcloth sponge-bath experience).
3. The promised breakfast, described as including a "Variety of fruit, yogurt, cereal" included the following: Yoplait strawberry yogurt (only; no othr flavors, though in my mind, Yoplait is not a high quality yogurt anyway). Several standard sweet cold cereals in individual cups, and two sweetened kinds of instant oatmeal. No fruit at all (I did see one person eating a banana; perhaps he got the one pice of "assorted" fruit). No regular black tea at all (there was one green tea, a couple of herbal mixes, and one black tea flavored with ginger and a heap of unfamiliar added ingredients; I'd expect some kind of rgular breakfast tea, or even Earl Grey). Also promised was: "Snacks available all day..." Really? not that I saw. Nothing at all.
4. The "hook" on the back of the bathroom door is less than 1/2-inch long, and wouldn't hold anything. Or maybe it was just broken. The toilet tissue holder was falling off the wall.
5. The welcome letter in the room said we should "enjoy a chocolate bar" from a local purveyor. How were we supposed to do that? No chocolate bar in the room, and no certificate to go get one, so not sure what that was supposed to indicate (they did give us one tiny bar to share when I mentioned it at the office).
6. They claim to be "committed to making a difference" for the environment. What I saw was: no recycling receptacle in rooms or common areas; lots of hot halogen light bulbs; no auto-off lights in the rooms, or reminders to turn them off; plastic plates etc.
7. Not really their fault, but they should mention to the supplier of their toiletries that the impossibly tiny print, on a clear bottle with translucent contents and no background behind the print, makes it IMPOSSIBLE to read which is shampoo vs gel etc. - you just see through to the back of the bottle.
8. It was nice to have a desk, but there are no outlets in easy reach (yes, we could crawl on the floor to reach behind it...).
9. Wi-FI was free, but the first 24 hours it barely worked at all.
10. Other requests: Since you provide a pen (which you did), how about a small notepad, too (none). I recommend providing a small dustpan and broom - not worth calling in the housekeeper and having the whole place cleaned just because we spilled a few crumbs of our toast, but we'd like to be able to sweep up our crumbs. PLEASE put the potholder where one can find it. At first, I thought there wasn't one at all (looked for it for pulling out the hot toaster oven rack). Just before leaving, I decided to search again to be sure; found it way at the back of the utensil drawer, serving as an under-pad under the set of knives. Definitely doesn't look like a potholder there. Please offer a selection of coffees for the in-room Keurig - not just light roast. Please provide a TV channel list (one is mentioned in the little room guide, but we found only a list of HBO shows).
So - each thing might seem small, but for the price, which was a bit of a splurge, I'd hoped for better.
Got to spend a great night in the city with my girlfriend which was her first overnight in the city and we were super satisfied with everything. The facilities were super clean and the staff was extremely personable. Wouldn't recommend children but for anyone else it is a great place. (i would be to nervous the kids would wreck all the beautiful decor. )
