I loved everything about this hotel. Location was ideal. Beds were comfortable with high quality sheets. Our room was very quiet despite overlooking Newbury Street. The coffee, tea, hot chocolate and water (including sparkling water) options in the lobby were appreciated.||This is a reasonably priced hotel with convenient restaurant and shopping options outside the door.||The friendliness of staff sets this lodging option apart from other local hotels. The young man working at the check-in desk December 8 and December 9 evenings provided customer service beyond our expectations.||

Stayed at this amazing small hotel on a weekend visit to see our daughter in college. It was extremely clean, easy to check in, and the entire staff was very friendly and accommodating. Parking on site (reserve!) was easy. And although our room was on Newbury Street, it was not loud at all. What a great location! Walk to shops, restaurants, the T, Fenway. Will definitely stay again!
