Kudos to Kip, who checked me in. I shared with him that I had just learned that one of my dogs had cancer. We shared stories about adopting and caring for dogs. His kindness made my time away from home more bearable.
Terrific high-end boutique hotel that I've stayed in a few times now. Excellent service, well maintained place all around. Best if you can get a corner room overlooking the Commons. My only complaint is that the mattresses are way too soft. Other than that, a winner.
"Great location next to Common and Public Gardens"
We stayed here for a quick overnight getaway. The room was clean and acceptable. We were supposed to have a Charles St. view; which, if we leaned against the window we could technically see the street but not what we were expecting (our view was at the side of the hotel and faced a brick wall). This hotel has a great location, rooftop terrace and a small bar in the lobby. We checked out the terrace but didn't use the bar. There is also a Bistro downstairs that we also did not use. Be aware that there is an 18% gratuity automatically added to your bill if you eat the "complimentary" breakfast. We felt this was inappropriate, if you say a meal is "complimentary" then you should account for that in your pricing, so we chose to grab a quick breakfast at the Thinking Cup coffee shop on Newbury st. (there's also one across the common on Tremont St.). Overall a decent place, one of many choices in Boston.
