    Its a perfect place to stay in Boston close to subways and places to visit. You will be at the top of the location areas to walk and go out and dinner. If you will go to Boston stay on The Common great service

    Walk out the Dartmouth St exit of Back Bay station and turn right. Half a block down is Stuart St. Turn right one block and the hotel is right on the corner of Stuart and Trinity place.
