The room was clean and the location is central to downtown. It was NOT advertised that there is no housekeeping services for guests staying less than three days. Be warned that if you like housekeeping they will not come, even if you request it unless to bring new towels. Additionally, I asked the front desk for some extra laundry bags in the AM and they never brought them so I had to call after a long day at work to request them. When I told the front desk at check out they couldn't care less- so I really don't recommend this property even through the site itself is both clean and new the staff and service are not great. Also, don't stay here if you are a light sleeper, its right next to a highway and the front desk will not assign you to a different room even if you ask. Note: They do provide a sound machine in the room to drown out highway noise.

I come to Boston quite a bit - for work and to visit family. The AC Hotel never disappoints. The location is great. Next to Whole Foods for an easy bite and located in the South End near all the restaurants, you can't beat it. When you need to leave, the airport is a quick 10 minute drive away (traffic dependent). The hotel itself is new and clean. The staff is friendly. I really enjoy the breakfast - very glad it's back after the COVID hiatus. The rooms are great - sofa and TV with work station, reading lights by each bedside, and a very nice walk-in shower with rain head shower. And no carpet. Love that.

This was my second time staying at this hotel, the first was last year for our anniversary and I was pleasantly surprised of the service and cleanliness of the hotel in general. On this last visit Rachel at the Front Desk checked me in and was able to help me surprise my husband for his birthday. Thank you so much and we look forward to staying there again.

Attended a conference in Boston and stayed at this hotel. I like the European style and the modern decor. Every member of the hotel staff was welcoming and helpful, from registration to departure. I’ve added this hotel to my list for future stays. One drawback - the valet fee is rather steep.

Business travelers have a simple need. Coffee in the morning. When I go the lobby at 6am and ask when does the coffee come out and the front desk says “about this time generally” is not a great answer. Picture was taken at 7am. Hour later, still no coffee. The kitchen said they ran out of paper cups. Clearly that is not a factual answer. Rooms are really nice !
