    Great place!

    Great place and location. Only criticism is the black out shade which was old and tattered along the edge and hard to pull down. One small thing. Wouldn’t keep us from staying there again,

  • 6.0.Good


    They gave us the smlleat room ive ever seen right next to a noisy elevator. We complained and aaked to moved so they upgarded us for free to a much nicer room with a beautiful view, but apon further inspection over our 2 day stay, we found spider webs, weed stems, the air &heat rattled and disnt work properly and the bed was horribly made with no fitted sheet, just flat sheet, flat sheet, comforter and then falt sheet again! And it cost $42 per day ro park at the hotel! We disnt apend much time in the room so we just took what we had and made the best of it. Neither room looked lile the p9ctures displayed on website. Rooms are all grey walls and black furniture. No color at all like in pics. But water view over Boston sky line is beautiful!

    Verified Expedia guest review

  • 4.0.Fair

    I was charged 3 times for the room I booked through expedia. The room was dusty, the jet powered bathtub didn't work, and the closet light kicked on and off with motion sensors set off by the air flow from the heater vent. The only type of resolution from all the inconvenience is getting refunded in 3 to 5 days for the 2 extra charges.
