I had a choice of a two room suite or one room with a view of Fenway for the same price. The view was nice, but I took the two room suite. It actually wasn't two rooms, just two living areas divided by drapes. Everything you would expect from a luxury hotel -- two flat screens; fluffy 8" pillows, granite countertop and quite expensive (~$230 with a corporate discount). Two things stood out. 1. There was no bible in the room. 2. They didn't have free samples of shampoo, conditioner, etc. But they did have a "beauty bar" in the room and you could purchase 2 oz containers of fancy lotions and shampoo etal for $20-30. No kidding. When I saw that, I knew the place was too fancy for me. I guess rich folk have that kind of money to throw around.
