10.0 Excellent
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They made us feel very welcomed and had great suggestions for places to eat in the area. The location was perfect to be able to walk to get food, go shopping, and catch the trolley to do some sightseeing.
8.5 Great
I love a good bed and breakfast. While the buffet style breakfast is simple, it is all you can eat and delicious: French toast, mixed fruit, scrambled eggs, sausage, croisants, orange juice, tea, coffee... mm mm good.
9.7 Excellent
Feel like I found a gem! Great location, very comfortable, good value. We loved having lunch at the Roost the day we arrived and dinner a couple of nights was excellent. And the Patisserie!!
10.0 Excellent
Clean, new, and close to Back Bay activities. My colleagues stated at the Mandarin a block away but I booked late for a small percentage of the price.

Breakfast starts at 7:30.
