The hotel was a great location, walking distance from North Station/TD Garden. Rooms were adequate, staff were just "there" like they needed the job but didnt want to be there.

Very clean hotel and close to North Station. Days into our stay we asked for a bathroom clean up in our room and whoever cleaned it did an excellent job! The negatives…bed was small for two people in a double bedroom and the front desk staff was not very friendly at all. All the times we came and went, no one even looked up to greet us.

I understand getting a room in a good location comes at a premium. However, in exchange for that premium I do expect a few things. First, there was a horrible patch in the plaster ceiling that consisted of two sections of drop ceiling tiles mixed with a plaster top. Yes, you wrote that correctly. Additionally, this patch job looked like something I might have done in middle school. Not from a higher end hotel. Also, the TV did not work. When I called down to the front desk they sent someone who turned the tv on and said. Yeah it's probably the signal, and left. I asked multiple times and got varying reasons why the television didn't work. None of the answers had the tone of "I'll get right on it", or "we're handling it. They were more of the tone of "what can I say to have you stop calling the front desk?" Overall not very happy. Having a working TV is not a requirement I'd put in the Prima Donna category of needs. If I'm paying $300 a night, it's not too much to ask. Will never stay at this hotel again.

I’ve stayed in this hotel before but this time everything seemed different. First of all the two people working the desk seemed miserable. They barely spoke when I checked in and acted like they wanted to be somewhere else. The room was clean and comfortable. The valet situation the day I checked out was a nightmare. They had one poor girl working the valet and it was taking 2 hours to get your car. I finally ended up walking with her and a small group of people over to the garage where our cars were and got them ourselves. No one apologized or cat except for the valet girl who by the way was hustling her butt off. The other girl just sat at the front desk and acted like it wasn’t her problem. I realize they are staff shortages but whoever is the manager could have either stepped in himself to help out or made arrangements to find other people to help this poor girl. There were two concerts in the city that evening you would think that as a hotel manager you would’ve been prepared for that. That sort of ruined the whole thing for us. But this is a great location!
