Location was very close to Baptist Hospital where my spouse was having surgery and they offer a discounted price if your stay is hospital related. Staff was pleasant and helpful, room was very clean and the restaurant food was good. I had to extend my stay at the last minute, as the surgery discharge was postponed, and they were very accommodating. Highly recommend.

Great hotel, attentive staff and outstanding onsite restaurant! Punch Bowl is a delight - we have eaten here many times and last night was just perfect. We took advantage of the annual Boston Dines event with fixed price 3-course meals. The food was plentiful, creative and super tasty! We also had breakfast at Punch Bowl - highly recommend the blueberry pancakes and crispy bacon! The continental option is very good and lots to choose from. ||Our room was lovely and the bedding excellent. We had a good night's sleep. The staff is always friendly and helpful. ||This was our 12th or more stay here since the hotel opened and every time we love it more! The location cannot be beat for appointments at Longwood Medical Complex (DFCI, Children's, BWH, etc) or Mass Eye/Ear on Huntington Ave. If you are in town for consumption of health care, trust me, this will be a welcome oasis at the end and beginning of each day!||Numerous other options for food are within a nice walk. ||This is our #1 hotel near DFCI after four years of trying them all!
