The concierges were just outstanding! Helped with my check in, (front desk busy) my dinner reservations, car service, my check out (front desk busy, abs confusion on my late check out). It’s a beautiful hotel in fab location. Contessas is beautiful and views are stunning. Brunch food was ok. Street Cafe food was great so were the cocktails and service! Really nice perk is guest only library- great vibe. Beautiful room!! Stayed (no upgrade) in queen double with beautiful views! Confusion on my check in VIP room upgrade and VIP late check out. DOUBLE CK all that. Def grab drink at bar. Door men, concierge are the real stars! Overall great stay! :))

We experienced a noise issue on our first night from the restaurant above and the hotel went over and above to ensure we were taken care of and comfortably moved to a quieter room. The property was perfectly located to so many awesome walkable locations. We would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Boston.

Incredible location, beautifully appointed hotel, and impeccable turn-down service. Rates were super high because it was marathon weekend in Boston. Contessa was fantastic (rooftop restaurant). Would have appreciated pool or spa amenities.

Really liked it. Only thing, we needed taxi to airport at end and doorman said they were hard to get since covid. We lucked out with one after about 10 mins. But as a service suggest you ask people on arrival if they want one so can be pre booked.
