"The hotel was dated, and the carpet on the 4th floor was soiled and needed to be replaced. The room was clean, quiet, and well-stocked. The beds were firm and in good shape. We checked in quite late, but it went smoothly, and the noon checkout time was appreciated. The service was excellent. Good place to stay, but we thought it was too pricey. No complimentary breakfast. The $35 parking fee was ridiculous. We recommend finding other options.2019-12-04"

"Close to the hospital. The hotel elevator wasn't working, and I struggled to walk up and down 2 flights of stairs due to a medical condition. We had trouble with the key card for the parking lot gate and were stuck in the garage for 15 minutes waiting for someone to come open it. Not a good experience.2017-10-13"
"The room was cold, and the climate controls didn't adequately address the problem. The bed was comfortable. Poor water pressure in the shower, and not enough hot water. The only saving grace was that the hotel was across the street from the Beth Israel Hospital complex. Don't stay here.2022-04-01"

"My hotel room was in the basement level, so it was a bit dark and disorienting to see people's calves and shoes walking past. However, the decor was lovely, and I loved having the galley kitchen and separate living area. Had to notify the front desk if I wanted housekeeping. The complimentary breakfast was a nice touch. The key code for the door was changed every day.2016-06-30"

At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
