This is a very nice hotel across the street from a mall and on the water. There are lots of restaurants in the mall and the hotel. Beautiful rooms, clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.

Excellent location, especially for visiting the Boston Museum of Science (1/4 mile away). Server Gazmen, in the Art Bar, is truly exceptional; I returned twice to provide my children exposure to his graciousness & personable service. There is a mall across the street, Charles River in the back, and the Amtrak North Station is about 1 mile ($6) taxi ride...

The hotel was lovely, the room comfortable. The pool was perfect for the kids with a good shallow end. The smoke smell throughout our floor was strong and not remedied by the hotel at all. Great location. Dante was overpriced and just fair overall.
