Although there were some pros to this hotel, the parking alone will never bring me back to this hotel. No exaggeration, there are 20 parking spots. That's it! They have no alternative parking and all spots on the street are permit parking only (although the hotel staff continued to offer that option). They also offered we park in a random dark lot across the four-lane highway, which was also full. After driving around for an hour, we parked in a nearby McDonalds and hoped for not getting towed. The rooms are very spacious compared to most hotels. They have a full hot continental breakfast complete with pancakes, waffles, bagels, cereal, coffee, etc. Close to Lechmere station which takes you into Boston (about 4 blocks). Dunkin Donuts right up the hill. BUT there are 2 elevators and they are by far THE SLOWEST elevators I've ever been on. And the stairs don't lead you to the lobby. So be prepared for waiting. Our TV and our friends in the next room wouldn't change channels (even when we switched remotes). Only the volume worked. The shower leaked all over the bathroom floor into the hallway. Only the first person showering gets hot water. The air is either freezing cold or stuffy and hot. One degree difference on the thermostat turns your room into an icebox.
