"A lovely boutique hotel in a charming area. Walk to unique shops, excellent restaurants, Boston Garden, Newbury Street and Boylston Street. The room was on the small side. Friendly, helpful staff and nice Bistro. The underground parking garage wasn't too far away.2018-02-13"

"Good location, but the room left a lot to be desired. There was no dresser or closet. The hotel staff was helpful in every way. Think twice about staying here for more than one night.2018-10-11"
"This was my 2nd stay at this hotel. Good location and friendly service. Spacious room and comfortable bed. Had to ask for more towels. The lobby bar had great pizza and a nice atmosphere for unwinding before bed. Didn't have automatic checkout. I'd happily stay again.2015-09-15"
"Great location, and the Metro stopped just up the street. Hotel was quiet, with a nice view of the city. Good room service food. Staff was helpful and always willing to assist with directions or whatever was required to make our stay enjoyable. Try the South Street Diner while in Boston.2015-02-12"

"An average hotel. Ask for a room on the western side of the building; the street noise was ridiculously loud on the Saturday night we stayed, and we were on the 17th floor with the windows and curtains closed. Parking was more expensive than I expected at $51 per night. Our stay was fine overall.2016-02-23"
"The hotel was gorgeous and historically important, and the location was the best; I walked everywhere. Excellent rates for Boston. The king bed in my room was the best bed I've ever slept on.

"Lots of restaurants, stores, and sightseeing in the area. The bathroom was old, and the plumbing was patched. The corking around the toilet bowl leaked. The hotel staff was welcoming and wonderful; they went above and beyond to meet my needs. 2020-12-17"

"The room was clean. The toilet in our room overflowed at 6 AM; excellent maintenance man jumped through hoops to resolve the situation, and the hotel clerk offered us a small discount. All the employees were pleasant. There was only 1 bartender on duty; after waiting 20 minutes for our drinks, we gave up and went to a bar down the street.2016-12-23"

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.
