How to Get There
Recently (12/10-12/11) stayed at the Inn and was awoken in the night by the carbon monoxide detector. The staff was understanding and helped to resolve the situation but I had to have the window open for the night. An uneasy feeling and I should have requested a new room. Was never contacted by hotel even after sending them an email describing the situation. Room was clean, spacious and in a great area!
I stayed here with my teenage son and we absolutely loved it! Everything was nicely decorated, clean, and cozy. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent! I would definitely want to come back as well as recommend it to others. It felt like home away from home.
My husband and I stayed here last week for the first time. It was just as expected. It is a pretty old building but very well maintained. There will always be some noise in the city but I have to say we found it quiet and private and were happy to be able to open our windows. We only saw one other couple when we were there, we didn't do their breakfast. We were on the 3rd floor and had absolutely everything we needed. It is a short walk to most places or a quick Uber ride. The communication we had with staff was minimal but wonderful, especially when we couldn't find our code in the pouring rain - they were right on the intercom before we could call them and opened the door. We will try and stay there again when we travel to Boston. It's a good deal!
We enjoyed our stay. Everything was walking distance. We caught a Red Sox game and were surprised how close it was to Fenway. Everything was clean and quality. We enjoyed the little touches like the local chocolate, area map and terry robes. We loved the keyless entry and not having to check in. We really felt like locals here.
This place ok - not great. At. All. Especially if you'd like to sleep when anyone one else is awake, or sleep walking, or sleep talking. God forbid someone should use the elevator. THAT sounds like a hippo and an elephant having an epic argument involving painful groaning. How would I know such things? Trust me: I heard it with my own ears. There are positives; like the location. That is quite good!
Another complaint? The locking system. There are key codes. These codes are pretty lengthy and are scribbled down on a piece of paper at check-in. Memorize the code or just Don't loose that piece of paper; otherwise you'll need to start over and memorize another key code. Oh! and..... when we were locked out, we ran into a lovely family. The reason we were locked out is that our customized key code and room number was given to them. So the hotel had to change our's (but didn't tell us). It was Karma or something to meet these folks outside while fumbling with the exterior lock at night. They said, "Oh! you must be in room 302! We were given your room number and key code. When we went in the room, we realized that it wasn't vacant. There was just too much stuff in it." WHUUUUUTTT??? They did finish with "the hotel assured us that this never happens." Oh. Great. I feel safe now.
I'm not going to discuss the beds or crappy pillows. Someone else can.
So, I think that maybe for around $400/night you, dear reader (if you've made it this far), can do better. I sure hope so.
