Spent an enjoyable 4 days at this property on the river in Boston. It was rainy and chilly during our stay, and we enjoyed sitting by the fireplace in the lobby. We also loved hanging out at RumBa with family and friends. Great drinks and appetizers! Our room was spacious and the bed was very comfy. It was quiet and peaceful and we didn't hear any noise from the hallway or the rooms next door. Overall, it was a great stay!

This hotel has been our Boston "home" for years now, and it is always a good choice; you really cannot beat the location as everything Boston has to offer is an easy walk away. The building is lovely, the rooms are always clean and the room service arrives hot and tasty. A wonderful staff all around. We highly reccomend this property.
