Very convenient location, connect directly to the mall. Overall the hotel is a solid choice if you visit Boston downtown. However, be aware that the hotel does NOT handle packages for you. I was told by the hotel by calling and email before I arrived that they take packages, but the reality is it's not entirely accurate, since the packages handled by Fedex store in the building. You will be charged for pick up fees. Depends on the weight it can cost up to $150. Not happy with the hidden cost despite I asked in front.

Location is excellent, right in the heart of the city. It’s not a quaint hotel but a large, bustling convention type. However the rooms are a decent size for a city and they are clean. My main issue and one I have had with multiple Bonvoy properties lately, is the lack of a true bathroom door. Not everyone wants a sliding door to a bathroom. They never fully close and offer no privacy. I understand Bonvoy is seeing this as space saving and a way to make their rooms appear more open and spacious, but please- bring back the bathroom door.
