Location is perfect for easy access to train station, tour buses and within easy walking distance to city centre. Room was clean and housekeeping standards were perfect. As the hotel is a Holiday Inn Express there is a light buffet breakfast included. It's basic but more than ample to start the day. A choice of hot or cold food and...

This hotel is hard to see in Friend Street, but well worth finding. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are large and comfortable and it's just across the street from the TD Garden. In the next block is a great sports bar & restaurant, The Fours, and the North Station 'T' is the same distance. A tasty breakfast...

Hotel room was very clean and spacious. We had a room with a microwave & mini fridge. Nice location close to TD Garden and to the "T." Very easy to walk to and from various points of interest in Boston. Breakfast was average. Very small breakfast area so always very crowded. Our window looked out at the building next door...

We found that this hotel met our needs completely for our visit to Boston. All of the staff members were nice and helpful. They even held our bags as we navigated the city on our last day. The breakfast was a nice start to the day. The only negatives at all was the slow elevator and it was a little...

We stayed for four nights. The bed linens very clean, always had fresh towels each day. Never needed to ask for refills/ restock of anything. Although the bathroom is small, it was always clean.. There is no counter in the bathroom, which means you have nowhere to put toiletries/ makeup. This was very FRUSTRATING, even a shelf under the mirror...

Ok, so we came for a Red Socks game, but actually stayed next the Boston Garden! A bit near to the wrong sport! The hotel was very functional, not far from the places, but they neighborhood was not the best in this town. Breakfast was ok, and the concierge was helpful in recommending places around to eat local food. Room...

This hotel is an interesting mix - the building is clearly old, the hallways dingy and winding, the elevators slow and smell funny. BUT their staff are terrific, the room was clean although small with a substantial amount of space devoted unnecessarily to a kitchen which one or two travellers wouldn't really need since the only appliances were a mini-fridge...

Great budget hotel, across the road from the stadium. Just a 10 min walk into the city and wharf area and only 5 mins from the northern end of the freedom trail. The rooms were well appointed with very comfortable beds and pillows. The front desk staff were all very friendly and obliging. The breakfast is really a great bonus,...
