I had high hopes for this hotel based on location, photos and reviews. My actual experience greatly exceeded the hope. The room was gigantic and beautiful. The common spaces were comfortable and equally magnificent. Classic period detailing in the furnishings and woodwork, a large comfortable bathroom, and clean.
What you give up are the following: no tv, no on site parking (parking in public lot three tenths of a mile away), no lobby, and no room service. My wife and I didn't miss any of those things and loved this place. We will use it in the future.

"Great location and great staff. Hotel is a bit old"
The hotel is a bit past it's prime. Everything seems dated. But moving past that, it's a wonderful hotel. The front desk employees are great. I even got to check in at 7 a.m. after a red-eye flight and did not have to wait until the official check-in time. The beds are comfy. The continental breakfast (pastries, muffins, bagels, oatmeal, fruit, juices) is delicious. The hotel is in a great location. Definitely recommend this place.
After staying in the Boston Sheraton where I had no shuttle service, carried my own bag and had to deal with the smell of a cigarette smoker for 4 days, The Rodeway Inn was exceptional. I got a ride from the airport and the young man insisted on carrying my bag up the stairs for me, not waiting for an additional tip above the one I gave him for the shuttle ride. The girl at the desk was very nice and when I said I thought I had an account with the Rodeway chain, she looked it up for me and wrote my number on a card. The next morning the woman at the front desk was very friendly and offered me coffee. The shuttle was on time, although an elderly couple held us up for 15 minutes. The driver helped the man into the shuttle, or I would have missed my flight. The furniture in the room was beautiful.
