How to Get There
This is a lovely inn in a great location; however, anyone booking here should truly understand that there is NO overnight staff at all on the premises. On a recent three night stay after the staff left at 10:00 PM a VERY loud party started at 10:30 PM in the suite directly above us- loud music- that bass music that throbs, many people coming in, dancing, jumping, etc. The Inn advises if there a problem you are to call their sister hotel, the XV Beacon, which is some distance away. We did not call but the day staff told me that a guest did call but no one came to help. The noise went on until finally stopping at 3:30 AM so we got very little sleep and were hesitant to go upstairs to ask them to stop given the number of people, the noise level and not knowing what was going on at the party. I wrote to the General Manager and she called me to apologize. I told her that for the benefit of future guests, I was interested in them changing their policies given the heightened interest in security these days. Their policy is to simply put the individual who booked that room on their "do not rent" list. That does nothing to help guests in the moment if this should occur again or if there is another kind of emergency. The General Manager told me that she would discuss this at a staff meeting and call me with an update the next week. Ten days later I have not heard from her. So I advise making sure you are comfortable with this security policy before you book here.
I have spent 6 months in a sabbatical research period working with colleagues at Babson College. Fortunately, I found an ideal place just in downtown to live at an affordable price. Inn St Botolph. You can sleep in a non-noisy area and you still are in the centre. Rooms are very much comfortable and everything works. Laura the manager, does more than a usual manager does. You immediately notice that besides everyone’s expertise (you have to know Carlos “El salvadoreño” who masters anything that might not work for a while) they care about you. Therefore, the atmosphere build by the whole team provides that warm that one needs when away from home. Just check the genuine smiles from Brendon, Dustin or Danieli, when at your morning arrival you say (I was the first at the breakfast time): how are you?.
Today, my last day, I realise how much I enjoyed this place, and how much I am going to miss these people that work at Inn St Botolph.
I stayed at the Inn at St Botolph for the last few days and I have to say, it was great. The location couldn’t be any better. Close to everything, especially the Pru, and yet in a tree lined low key street. My room was large for Boston standards, living room, kitchen, bath and bedroom filled with light throughout the day. It was wonderful to have keyless entry and didn’t have to worry about a key. The staff was so helpful with dinner suggestions, an amazing meal at Bar Lyon, and others things.
I will stay there again for sure!!
