A lovely property with a lovely view. The service was very good from the bellman to the concierge. The room was clean, serviced regularly, no complaints. A good location within easy walking distance to the trolley tour. For a nice stay in Boston, you can't go wrong.

I originally booked this hotel directly with property, however, as we approached the arrival date of a weekend break ,I cancelled the reservation and re-booked through Expedia who were offering the same room type at a reduced price which was well worth the effort. On arrival to Boston, I decided to try the river taxi (pre-paid online) that takes you...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
