My wife and I stayed here about a month ago for our Anniversary. It was great. The staff were super helpful and friendly, we had a nice view of the park from the room, it was the perfect location to walk around and explore Boston.

The hotel itself is very nice .. rooms are very clean and tidy ... Booked a room overlooking the park which was a great scene.. the location is very comfortable as it's on the corner of Newbury street a great shopping district and close enough to malls. One thing stands in this hotel which is the poor staff engagement and service.. the reception staff are not friendly nor welcoming and reception is having long queues especially if you are there during check-in or our times .. they only have two desks available .. the room is missing alot of basic amenities and you have to call them to get it and not refill unless you call a couple of times.. looking at the 7 days I stayed there and the value for money I for sure will not rank them in a top tier hotel or 5 stars .. they have a long way in retrain their employees to how represent a true 5 stars hotel .. not the best experience due to people .. this comment is shred by a number of guests in their reviews and I think nothing happened..
