Great stay
Great hotel good location to be slightly outside Boston
Mr D V, gb2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Nearly quite good, but service needs upgrading.
Nice enough hotel, but the service is a bit "casual". The reception staff are not particularly friendly, the fitness centre needs a complete overhaul (many broken or failing machines), and the room service missed a number of replenishments. Not terrible just a lack of personal attention that you get from many other hotels in Boston.
John, gb2 night business trip
Good 6.0
Hotel good, but Gold programme not really implemented. Wasn’t upgraded. Hotel tired looking, staff friendly, but not entirely fast or actually helpful. No bed side sockets for plugging in devices.

Exceptional 10.0
Great deal
Good location for us with a short walk over the bridge or to a station. Very clean with large room and great view, very friendly hotel. Starbucks was a bonus for us and the shopping centre across the road. We got a late deal so very competitive price for us
Samantha, gb2 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great location, reasonably priced
Well priced in a great location and with super friendly staff. The barman stayed open past last orders, just for me. The concierge went above and beyond to make sure I was visiting all the right places. And the food in Dante was just divine.

Exceptional 10.0
Great stay at the Sonesta
Amazing stay at the Sonesta. Stayed over 4th July, so the hotel was busy but still friendly and helpful. Sweets and beads given to guests. Clean room, attentive staff and a great concierge service.

Great hotel
Hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming and gave us lots of suggestions of things to do. Room was clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay again!! Have attached the view our room!
Claire, gb2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Clean and comfortable
Spotlessly clean, modern and very comfortable. Staff efficient rather than friendly. Noise in my room from external ventilation. It's a 30-35 minute walk to town. Nearest T stops 10-15 mins away. Seemed more of a business/conference hotel.
