                                                  8.8

                                                  the staff was very attentive, the rooms were nice and everything seemed to be clean.

                                                  I felt it was a lovely hotel but extremely expensive. Also the breakfasts were very overpriced. $ 12.00 for oatmeal with banana or strawberries really seemed like a rip off and their other breakfasts were terribly overpriced as well.

                                                  good situation and the excellent service from the staff

                                                  The security is poor as the second nite the was a group of young guests running and slamming the room doors at 3.00 in the morning and nobody show-up.The price for parking is to expensive

                                                  7.0

                                                  Very quiet and comfortable. Probably the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in.

                                                  Other than the room attendants, the staff was stiff and relatively uninformative. There was not hot water for a shower at 11 p.m. Wifi was an additional charge; not included in room charge

                                                  Room a/c was unable to cool room below 77 degrees in 20 hours despite lowest setting

                                                  Room size, slow reception services; no personal touches; bathrooms flooded ; sinks clogged ; staff did not feel too apologetic about this.

                                                  5.4

                                                  Not much. The breakfast was good. View of park from room

                                                  Room was uninspiring. Small bathroom. Overdue for update. No free WiFi. Small business centre - only 2 pc's available. No lounge facility for coffee or just to sit. The bar only opened at 4pm

                                                  5.0

                                                  The bed was amazing

                                                  Service was the worst I have ever received. Very rude employees, no help with luggage, no understanding for kids' needs

                                                  We loved the view from our room of the park and since we were there for the Boston Marathon, we loved the close proximity to the finish.

                                                  8.8

                                                  Great location, excellent service, friendly staff, and very comfortable

                                                  They charge for wi-fi connection in the rooms. A hotel of this stature and price should not. It feels like they are nickel and dimeing their customers when this is an amenity that all good and bad hotels offer. I also felt that their parking service charges where excessive

                                                  They charge for internet-for the price of the hotel-this was a bit much

                                                  The hotel's location is perfect for walking to shopping and sight-seeing in downtown Boston. The rooms are very spacious, the beds are extremely comfortable.

                                                  Seems classless to charge for internet service. Makes me feel gouged. I don't think I've stayed in a hotel anywhere in this country or Europe in the last year where I've been charged for internet.

                                                  So good, the staff made us feel very welcome and the service level close to if not the best I have ever received.
