      Big comfortable bedroom, ineffective air conditioner but windows open. Shower controls difficult to use but once established OK. Property is being renovated but we didn't suffer at all as a result.

    • 6.0.Good

      Unfortunately this hotel was being renovated during our stay so none of its facilities were open.Fortunately it is in a good location and we were able to go elsewhere for dinner. Staff were friendly and helpful but the hotel was overpriced given the status.

      Roof top pool and bar area.

      W Four of us had travelled from Glasgow, Scotland. We found the hotel very comfortable with great location. One of the attractions had been the rooftop area to give us views of the city, which had featured heavily in the details of the hotel. We arrived on the 30th September and were disappointed to discover it was closed. Even though it was the end of the swimming pool season, the area could still have been open.It may be worth considering keeping it open all year round, and closing only on days with poor weather.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      The room was large with very comfortable beds. Power sockets with USB charging ports in multiple locations within the room meant that charging phones was very convenient. There was space for my kettle and a fridge for the milk so that we could have a proper cup of tea! The location is great, the Prudential subway station exit is right in front of the hotel, with Copley Square and Boylston and Newbury Streets a short walk away. The hotel was undergoing a lobby refurbishment at the time though (we were there at the beginning of October), and the roof top pool is only open in the summer so we couldn't get to the roof which was a bit of a shame, but that actually had only a minor impact on on stay.
