    Was unaware that staff have been on strike for the last 30 days. Protest loudly walking around the outside of the hotel for 7am until 7 pm Think we should’ve been warned about this prior to booking as would have chosen another hotel to stay at !

    Wish we could’ve stayed longer

    Me & my son stayed here whilst going to see Post Malone at the TD Garden. When we arrived there were some employees on strike outside with placards shouting. The receptionist informed us that it had been going on for quite a while. This didn’t bother us and she was very friendly and apologetic. The room was superb, lovely bathroom and comfortable beds. The picketers were back at the hotel the following morning, 7am sharp. We were told that this would happen, we were up anyway, so it didn’t affect us. We had a lovely breakfast in the restaurant, there was only one waitress servicing the whole restaurant, but she was friendly and efficient. The gentleman on the front desk was also friendly, informative and efficient. We would love to visit Boston for longer in the future and we wouldn’t hesitate in booking this hotel for our stay.

    This is a well appointed hotel in a fantastic location but unfortunately our stay was spoiled by the very noisy protest taking place 12 hours a day. The hotel did not inform us before arrival that the strike was taking place and staff appeared ill-equipped to deal with the situation. Our room was very close to the protest but when we asked to move we were told there were no other waterfront rooms available.

  • 8.0.Very good

    good but beware of extra charges.

    Overall the hotel was good. Rooms clean and staff pleasant. Our AC unit scent shook noisily when on however. We were awakened at 7am by hotel staff stoking and demonstrating against the management who I understand are changing their working conditions including reducing or removing their medical care. While I understand and agree with their protest the hotel should have had the courage to acknowledge and apologise for it and, more important, should have informed guests in advance of the fact that they would be wakened. Instead we stayed up late and were wakened early. I also object to some of the hotel charges - $18 for two eggs on toast room service turned into $30 when we came to pay. This wasn’t very clear from the in room menu. And then there was the $20 dollars daily charge the staff explained was for WiFi - it was woeful- 3 teabags , a few coffees and access to the gym we didn’t want. Surely tea coffee and WiFi are standard these days and off-site gyms charged for when required. If you are going to charge that much a hotel should ensure the service and quality fits the cost!

    How not to keep your guests happy.

    Having travelled all day on two flights we arrived 8.00pm very tired. Retiring for the evening I noticed holes in the bed sheets yes holes in the bed linen. I didn't reported the matter as we were too tired. At 7.30am the following morning we were awaken by loud banging in the adjoining room. This continued for approximately 10 minutes, reluctantly we got up to investigate the disturbance, to find two workmen walking down the corridor away from the rooms. Both these incidents were reported but nothing more was heard from the hotel. Obviously customer service doesn't figure too highly at this hotel.

  • 4.0.Fair

    We had 2 rooms booked but one was not made available until 5.30 pm, which was disappointing given we were arriving straight after the Boston Marathon. One of the rooms was exceptionally noisy - when next door had a shower it was as if they were in our room with us. We mentioned this to Reception on checkout and they kindly agreed to refund the resort fee on both rooms, but I would hope that they resolve the issue so that other guests do not have to put up with it. I booked here as I had stayed here about 4 years ago. In some areas I think the hotel has become quite tired in those 4 years and does need to be smartened up in order to keep their rating and their membership of the LHW.

    Great location on the waterfront, three minutes walk to all the Italian restaurants in Hanover Street and Salem Street, 20 minutes walk or so to Beacon Hill area, and 10 minutes to the New England Aquarium and the whale watching and Duck Bus hubs. Lovely views over the water too.
