Great base to explore Boston. Very comfortable with lovely, quirky decor. Perfect for our family to stay in one room (2 queen beds) The breakfasts were delicious - especially the raspberry/blueberry scones.

Nice stay
The location is perfect and the breakfast is fantastic. The rooms are very small, wifi was spotty, l and some maintenance on minor details (like bathroom floor tiles) may be in order. Overall, I enjoy this hotel and the unique history it offers.
