I recently stayed here with my parents and girlfriend. My parents were visiting and had an early flight out of Logan. I selected this hotel for its proximity to the airport and was very pleased with the level of comfort and services received for the price. The view of the Boston skyline from our room absolutely takes the cake, but the service and amenities for the price of the stay were excellent. Dinner was a bit pricey for the level and amount of food received, but it was still very much enjoyable. I will definitely be staying here again!

Nowhere to get as much as a bottle of water. No food or beverage service until 5pm. Room linens were clean and room was serviceable. Disappointed in my stay. Had stayed here many years ago and it was so much more on point. There is zero lounge/comfortable furniture anywhere in the place to rest up.
