10.0 Wonderful

10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Amazing location. We loved the bar and morning cafe. My partner and I have stayed here twice and defiantly plan on staying again.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Great details, nice use of a former warehouse. Friendly staff, clean environment, perfect location. Place was booked full, but never heard other guests.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Very nice rooms
Cons:No garage or valet
8.8 Very good
Pros:Location Value Room size Quiet heating/cooling system Staff
Cons:The blinds. We had an interior room with the window looking out into the hallway. No big deal except that they used a $15 Wal-Mart blinds on that window and had a blue light in the hallway that was on all night long. The room was bright...all night long. If you're a person that is at all sensitive to light in your room at night, this may be a deal breaker. If you're management reading this, put up some blackout curtains or turn the stupid light off at night! This was my only qualm, otherwise it was a great place.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Location was great close to everything. Price for the location you cant beat it
Cons:Parking was a block away and it cost $32 with there discount.
5.7 Fair
Pros:Room and hotel were nice.
Cons:Location was very loud. It was friday night and the noise outside did not stop until after 4am (car horns, loud drunk prople, police sirens). We literally got no sleep due to the extreme noise.
8.5 Very good
Pros:Location was next to Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market...good price for that area
Cons:Couldnt control temp in the room..froze all night
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Centrally located, nice comfortable rooms. Breakfast available starting at 6am.
Cons:Not enough in room lighting. A second mirror in bathroom would have been nice.
8.0 Very good
Pros:Very clean, modern look, staff was friendly and helpful.
Cons:Unable to block out light from the street with blinds. No on site parking available. A better discount on local parking garage would make this hotel one of the best affordable stays in the city.
