A once great property has become faded. Service remains good but a makeover is overdue in room decor. The breakfast menu has shrunk where once it was something to look forward to. Service remains cordial and attentive. But, sorry to say we are moving on.

I lived in Boston for many years and always wanted to stay in this hotel after years of passing by it, and now I finally did! I have to say I had a fantastic and luxurious experience. The staff and room service was exceptional. I felt pampered every step of the way. One of my best experiences in a hotel in America, and the building is gorgeous! Beautiful classic interiors that exude that old Boston history and charm.
