Had to move rooms 3, almost 4, times. The whole situation was handled very poorly until we finally were helped by a manager. Just wish it did not have to get that far... Overall, the hotel is extremely outdated, struggled to control the temperature in the room and the walls were so thin we heard a screaming child all night. Images online are extremely deceiving and lead to a disappointing experience as a whole.
Samantha was great as we were checking in. We were a little early for check in so she said the hotel would hold our bags while we toured the city. She came through on the promise of a room with a better view. So happy with the room that over looked Kings Chapel and Old City Hall. The hotel is right in the middle of everything, easy walking distance to anything. Beds were comfortable. Room was a little small but wont stop me from staying again. No free WiFi.
When we arrived the hotel was sold out and did not go or our "guaranteed reservation" for a double room. We were instead offered a full size bed and a cot for the same rate even though the room sells for $50 less. Spent most of our night on the phone with Kayak who didn't care. Says it's non refundable yet how they can say it's a guaranteed reservation when clearly it's a maybe! Horrible customer service by hotel manager and kayak. Hotel didn't offer to call around or find other accommodations for us.
The staff at the back hotel bar was friendly, excellent and accommodating when the kitchen was about to close in 5 minutes. He even offered to get Guinness on tap from the front bar the Last Hurray. Rooms were clean and they were able to accommodate us with a better view. Bed is comfortable and linens are nice thread count. Decor is classic, wood paneled, gold, red and mustard yellow-- and reminded us of Stephen King's The Shining (where the film was made). Wifi is not included if you book through a third party-- they should change this policy as a courtesy. Drainage in tub was a little slow but this is true of most Boston older buildings.
Location was close to most points of interest in downtown/waterfront Boston. Large lobby and helpful staff. Clean. Would rather have traded nice large entrance and lobby area for a better room size and traded the standard (double) bed for a queen size. Price for what we received was a little on the expensive side. Hotel claims to be 4 star but it doesn't quite make that level. WiFi should have been included as is becoming standard at hotels of this level
Although small, the room was comfortable and the shower quite lovely. Plenty of hot water in the morning. A blizzard was expected so I decided to check out a day early, and this was hassle free. I did not ask for the name of the person who helped me with the checkout, but she was very polite and extremely helpful. The door man and valet folks were quick to bring my car and wish me a safe journey. Overall a very pleasant stay and I was able to accomplish that which I was in town for. I found sleep very difficult due to the noise level throughout the first night of my stay, which was a Tuesday. Many drunk people coming to rooms late very loud in the hallway and then one couple in the room next to mine arguing until approximately 4am.
This hotel for the amount I paid was really above my expectations in terms of service. Location is very central to the historic district, entertainment, food shopping. The hotel itself has a rich history and great to wonder through it. Would stay here again.
Nice Location Room was tiny, outdated decorations, you spend hundreds on a room and they want to charge you $10 day for internet. Stay somewhere else !
Rooms small. Views terrible. Bathroom really small. If you can, select another hotel. Small. Needs renovations
Not a detail was missed. Truly a 5-star experience!
Location is fantastic--easy walking distance to all the places of interest. Hotel is itself a historical landmark. Room was rather small, no free wifi.
Thin walls; heard neighbors
Bathroom was pretty small.
Extremely dirty. Unclean pillows and mattress. Not washed bathrooms.
Rooms were clean, Staff pleasant. Nice gym. Love the security card elevator feature. Should be in all hotels. Elephant castle is always pleasant. I didn't like that my room didn't have an ironing board & safe. In my opinion those two should be a no brainier & standard.
The hotel looked nicer online to be honest. The staff were pretty great. House keeping was really good with fixing the room after i called about the bed being dirty. They left a nice note and some snacks/drinks as well. The TV was really nice. Our room was not very well kept. It was dusty, the bed hadn't been changed I believe, the sheets and pillow case was dirty and hairy, and the bathroom smelled like ciggaretes and was kind of dirty. the room was better than a motel so it wasn't the worst, just a little too pricey for the kind of quality you end up getting.
- Simple check in and check out procedure. - Some complimentary amenities in the morning (free coffee and fruit) - Good location for business - Not the newest facility - could stand an upgrade for the carpeting, floors and bathroom - Communal iron and other in-room amenities takes some getting used to - Not recommended for families traveling with children as there's nothing for them to do on-site.
Gym - small
The TV and shower are excellent as is the location of the hotel. Knowing how expensive downtown Boston hotels are, I appreciate being able to stay in the heart of the city at such a low cost. Sadly, the staff isn't very friendly. They always act like they are doing you a favor if asked a question or reporting the elevator malfunctioning!!!!
Great location, rooms were clean, a lot of ports/outlets Room is kind of small, a bit pricey for the size of the room
The bed was too firm. Had a hard wire around the edge of the mattress. No Iron, No Microwave, No Fridge. The shower was tiny.. really small. Not comfortable at all.
Receptionist clerks responsive to questions and pleasing traveler. The bathroom shower was excellent. The heating unit in the room was noisy. The breakfast was skimpy; commercial granola bars, oranges, bananas, coffee from machine (all impersonal).
Don't leave your car in valet for over the 24 hour period or you will be charged $27 for 1 1/2 hours over... Still don't understand the Math there!
Location is great in the center of everything walking distance anywhere to Boston. That breakfast is not included with the price tag of the room breakfast should be complementary. Parking under the hotel should be priced accordingly and have a special pricing for hotel residents.
Close to everything but quiet to recharge Parking, not included
The location was great with close proximity to public transportation and that made it easy for us to get around the city. Front desk was able to get us a room with double beds on a busy holiday weekend. 1) Slow elevator to get to lobby 2) Steep valet parking fees 3) Room service did not clean the room on our first day. I am not sure whether it was because of busy holiday weekend.
Room was large. Coffee maker, ironing board and safe in the rooon. Insufficient soundproofing. Avoid avoid avoid 6th floor: that's where the pool is and kids are very loud when walking and running along the corridor. We couldn't check in at 3:30pm and the room was not ready until 4:30pm, half hour past the check in time of 4pm.
Staff was very helpful and kind. After taking a red eye they were able to accommodate us on an early check in. Hotel and rooms were clean. Beds were comfy too. AND it's close to everything/walking distance.
Nice and clean. Annoying to pay for parking. Made me really angry, the hotel should have free parking for its guests. $40-55 a night is just ridiculous.
The location was superb. The hotel is within walking distance of most attractions, shops, and metro. Chinatown is only one block away, with many delicious food choices. The pool could be cleaner. They should provide locks for the lockers.
Had online check in everything was very clean beds comfortable great staff
Comfy beds and clean room located easy walks from Boston Common Faneuil Hall and so much of the tourist stops we wanted to see. Salvatore's was a decent restaurant right across the street. Snooty staff at front desk. Restaurant staff courteous. Not a hotel with a family vibe. It seems more suited for business and conference attendees
Wonderful location, comfortable and clean room, friendly staff. What else can I ask for a 3 day visit to the city. Can't think of anything.
everything worked good location
Friendly staff; accommodated a late check out request, but with a fee to be paid. Not an issue. Promised champagne and strawberries for special occasion (but never arrived). Great location. Bellmen were extremely helpful! Front desk staff seemed friendly, but read issues we had. Had there not been any of the issues, this would've been a great stay, I just don't know why there were so many missteps. It was a good stay, if you look at room size, bed comfort, bathroom size and comfort (just don't expect privacy; everyone will know your business in there!), friendliness, location. This should be a phenomenal stay. It has all the makings for it. It must've been a full moon or something that weekend. Was promised champagne and strawberries the first evening, but it didn't come. The next day, the room wasn't cleaned when we arrived back at 11pm, so called to have at least the bed made and fresh towels (they offered a discount on an additional night, which was accepted, though didn't go smoothly at final check out for some reason); also mentioned the missing champagne and strawberries, was told they'd be there the next night, but again no champagne or strawberries when we returned. Ever. Hallway was meeting central at 3am for drunken shenanigans by other guests. Finally, on the fourth day, after returning to the hotel after a long day, the wireless entry failed, so we had to wait to be let into the room. To the front desk's credit, they were going to upgrade us for free on the last night for the inconvenience, but one of us needed to get back into the room because they were flying out in two hours, so that wouldn't work. Was promised an email accounting, even gave email address and was promised in 5-10min; it's now over twelve hours later, and still no receipt in my inbox or spam/junk folder.
The location was perfect for seeing almost everything in Boston. You ar eright in the centre of things yet it is not noisy like some hotels right in the hub of town. 2 things - No coffee maker in the room...thankfully coffee shops were close by...and having to pay for Internet in business centre
The location was great especially in proximity to public transportation. The decor was simple and comfortable. The noise coming from the hallway and room next door was somewhat bothersome. The lounge on the groundfloor became a night spot on the weekend and guests are continuing to party going back to their rooms. The acoustics in the lounge were very loud as well.
Cleanliness, bedding. I really missed a coffee pot in room and thought wifi should be gratis
Nice doormen Cramped rooms that were not sound proof. No character to the rooms
I actually like the location, since it's a little quiet. It's clean and hip and the staff is not in your face, but always helpful when you need. It's a tasteful place to stay.
Friendly staff, clean room, superb matresses.
Walking distance to all central Boston. Fantastic location Shower is a glass box dividing the bed room and bathroom. Perfectly ok if you're into that sort of thing
the hotel had an excellent location in the middle of town and right across from quincey market and all sorts of historic places also near the water. I did not like the colors in the room, not really funky and stylish
I encountered a few problems and the staff acted immediately to accommodate me.
Location, Location, Location 2 min from Boston Common, in the center of the theater district Offsite Valet Parking was $52 per day, raising the effective room rate cost by that amount. Bed was too soft to be comfortable for my taste. No onsite restaurant
Chic hotel with very comfortable rooms and excellent customer service. It's hard to think of anything we didn't like
Great ,location, layout, quality, and service. Our second stay here and we remain fans of this newer downtown hotel. Comfortable beds, quality fixture, terrific, huge Tv, fast wifi. Haven't tried the food. The bar was nice. Jeez, the standard rooms are tiny with hard to access closet and no side table on one side of the bed. We were offered a larger room for another $40 and should have taken it!
Tasteful and modern décor, beautiful details, friendly staff, comfortable beds, location, complimentary bottles of water TV program transmission quality was spotty. Glass shower screen led to wet bathroom floor and soaking bath mats after every shower. Ice machine hard to locate and not on every floor.
Beautiful room with an awesome mattress! Fancy hotel right in the heart of downtown. Definitely recommend.
Staff was awesome and the place is all brand new and beautiful A little expensive
The location First room far to loud (trucks unloading / loading 5 am); second room not so loud, but still noisy. Strange inventory: No hooks to hang coats etc. Only one shelf for shirts in the wardrobe, no other furniture witgh drawers (underware etc.) half of the wardrobe full of ironong board. No hooks to hang bathrobe and bigger towels in the bathroom. small selection at breakfast, every day the same. Loud music allready at breakfast. No bowls for yoghurt and esreal to mix, except small plastic cups. All breakfast cups, spoons etc. plastic (lots of vaste) hardly any tables to eat breakfast (sofas. lounge chairs etc.) Over all feeling like a grown up youth hostel
The Godfrey is very Modern, ideally located and the staff is super friendly. ( Except for the manager on duty when I checked in.) Booked a two bedroom with a third party site,didn't have that option so I called up the hotel to see if there was an option. Was told to just mark in underspecial request and they would have it for me. When I checked in was given a small King size room and says that's what we booked. Told the manager who talked to us what happened and she says we never made the request. I pulled up the reservation on myphone and showed her the request, then she says its first come first serve basis. Only room left for the night was a $80 upgrade was a four class upgrade to a suite which was much bigger and had two TVs, so I took it, had no other option. Walked into the room and if that was a four class upgrade I would hate to see a regular room. Room was very small, only one TV. Don't get me wrong, hotel was very nice. Big screen TV,nice showers and towels, but felt very very very cheated. Along with the $52 for parking it was like spending $600 a night for a small room.......Really??
Great location, central to most attractions. Very polite and helpful staff Ice machine was broken, but these things happen.
Convenient, clean, very nice, sleek, efficient Tight rooms for two travelers with large bags
Location was outstanding. The interior of the hotel was impeccable - obviously new. The bed was probably the most luxurious of any hotel bed I have slept in. Bose Bluetooth speaker provided ambiance to the room. Continental breakfast was a pleasant surprise. Room was a fairly small. Dresser in the hall made for tight passage between the bedroom and the bathroom.
Easy check in, impressive room, comfortable and clean. We left our bags after checking out and went out to enjoy the day, came back and retrieved them from the friendly staff later.
Location was great close to everything. Price for the location you cant beat it Parking was a block away and it cost $32 with there discount.
Rooms were small and dingy and poorly lit.
Centrally located, nice comfortable rooms. Breakfast available starting at 6am. Not enough in room lighting. A second mirror in bathroom would have been nice.
Location was next to Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market...good price for that area Couldnt control temp in the room..froze all night
My wife and I stayed in Boston for a quick getaway and were very impressed with the hotel. It offered a clean room with a comfortable bed. The location is the reason to book this hotel,
Great location , clean, spacious, comfortable beds, quiet Parking. A few blocks away and cost an extra $30. No breakfast.
Close to work, comfortable bed. No in-room coffee, very weak shower stream, no breakfast buffet, no desk, AC that blows right on you, lights that are impossible to adjust.
Very clean, modern look, staff was friendly and helpful. 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.
Very nice rooms No garage or valet
The morning staff was nice The evening staff was a bit rude Had a lots of ants in our room!!
Location Value Room size Quiet heating/cooling system Staff 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.
Room and hotel were nice. 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.
It was incredibly functional--I stayed in a clean, nice one bed room and for my needs it was perfect. The only thing that didn't quite work was the fact that I was relying fully on public transportation and it is a solid walk from the closet T stop. I could do it, but if you have kids, or ladies, if you're wearing heels, plan to take 'em off to get there!
We only stayed for one night, but this was the perfect location. Easy walking distance from New England Aquarium and Faneuil Hall. There was a loud commotion outside from one of the area bars at 2am that continued for 20 minutes. I could hear it from all the way up on the 11th floor
We enjoyed the Hilton very much! The rooms were extremely clean and cozy. The Location was ideal for enjoying the night life however.... when we were trying to sleep it was extremely loud. We heard people throughout the hotel all night and everything going on outside the windows. Otherwise everything was wonderful!
Awesome staff. They helped a lot with restaurants and hot spots of Boston. They asked if I'd like a spacious room.. I got a regular one oddly shaped. They had construction going and woke me up with drills and hammers at 730am both the nights I was there
Service in the hotel bar. Ordered mimosas while we waited for our car. 4 different waitresses came over to get our order (after we'd already placed it). 10 minutes later, still sans mimosa, I asked one of them if they were coming. As it turns out they won't serve alcohol before 11 AM. Probably something worth mentioning when someone orders!!!!
Great location. 0.2 miles from fanuiel hall. Next to a pub and across the street from a restaurant / next to Howel at the moon and walking distance to aquarium, restaurants, bars and harbor... Everything costs money... Parking is $51 extra per night. Wifi is $40 extra per night... King Rooms are tiny... Staff isn't friendly... Hallways are dark... Some valet people are rude, others are absolute dolls... And the lobby is depressing and sets the vibe for the rest of the hotel... Couldn't control heat, felt like cold air was blowing on us all night.
We loved our stay in Boston! This hotel was situated right in the middle of downtown within walking distance to mostly everything! We had such a great time. Staff was extremely kind and helpful, especially the doormen! I will definitely stay at this hotel again next time I go back to Boston!
very clean, nice room, fantastic staff heat in room was uncontrollable. had AC set to 60 degrees with windows open and it was stifling hot in the room all the time. literally sweating thru the night.
no micro oven in the room
Location and room size Staff, difficult to work with. Room was not clean (mold in the bath tub, sinks leaked)
The staff was wonderful, very polite and helpful. The hotel was very clean. The beds were quite comfortable. The room was nicely spacious. It is a lovely hotel conveniently located for the tourist. The appointments were a little less than expected considering the expense/level of accommodation. Nothing major. The furniture was sub-par - the drawers didn't close well, the closet door light weight. The phone lines did not work. There was on-going remodeling work to which the trouble with the phones might be attributed however the issue was not resolved within our four night stay.
The hotel was beautiful and staff was very professional and courteous and willing to help.
Beds, personal treatment of the staff No
the health club is fantastic a reason to come back, the eating / bar facilities are ok it does not feel very cozy
Rooms are classic ritz-carlton comfort and luxury. They forgot to make a dinner reservation I requested at booking and never did anything about it.
Location Thought it was too expensive.
they did not have taxis waiting outside and couldnot call one. They had to whistle for one passing by. As they are on a side street not that many pass buy. Also the area is not as nice as others in the city
staff was terrific and service oriented. price for valet parking was steep.
Location was great. Everything was in walking distance. Room was clean, bathtub and shower was fantastic. Room was a bit small, balcony was not a real balcony - very small step out balcony! A bit pricey for the size and amenities.
The hotel is very clean and the staff was really nice and helpful There was only Luke warm water in the shower and after walking around boston on a 10 degree night it really put a damper on our romantic get away !!
Loved the location, the amenities and the service. We've already booked our stay for next year! difficult to adjust the temp in the room - trying to cool the room meant the AC was on full blast.
Great location, staff was great, hotel was beautiful Air conditioning was loud, no in-room refrigerator, no vending machines, bed was a little too firm
Regulars at their restaurant, our first stay was all we needed. Handsome, friendly, warm lobby area; helpful, attentive staff. The in-hotel restaurant is actually very good -- and has a great bar area. The staff that delivers items to rooms are very friendly, speedy folk. Hotel is under renovation in part, so there are inconveniences until completion early next spring. When we were there, some desk staff are "in training" and not exactly use to speaking in English (!). The door-staff/valets are very helpful.
Convenience was superb.
Nice room, helpful staff, reasonable prices Tried to book another night and was told they were completely sold out. Looked on kayak and saw availability...
Excellent location to view all of Boston by foot. We had a wonderful stay and would stay again.
Location is great for exploring Boston - but if you don't want to hear the late night crowds at Quincy market-make sure to speak up. The wine list in the restaurant is extremely overpriced and unfortunately I was served a bottle of wine that had not been stored properly and had turned. The bartender didn't agree but had the manager bring me a new bottle. That bottle was better than the first but still not tasting quite right-but we kept it because it was too much of a hassle.
Location Comfort Price was for location. Have stayed in HI Express with just as nice rooms for way less than half the money Charge for WiFi in room Do not ever touch mini bar. You will be charged
Stayed here twice. Both for location. Room rates are pricey but you are in the midst of downtown Boston. The in-house restaurant was serving a $20 lobster dinner special which was fantastic. Valet parking is easy and staff is very courteous. There is an extra charge for valet at $49. Again very pricey but if you are staying for a few days it evens out. The room was a standard king that was comfortable, clean and spacious enough for two. We were provided a mini fridg gratis. The usual outrageously overpriced mini bar is present along with bottled water priced at the level of alcohol. Several newspapers are available free. Apparently the hotel is undergoing updates to its TV and wifi system. That's not a problem but there was no information provided at check in that it was happening. That is a problem. The TV acted up at start up and the wifi was cantankerous. Booting you off and causing you to sign in again and again. Quite slow also.
Great value for money. Good restaurant -- functional for working and meeting. Decor and some amenities starting to get a little dated. Humidifier supplied did not really work. Internet in rooms slow.
Step out front door and you are on the freedom trail and ready to go Location
The location of the hotel couldn't be more perfect. Upon arrival the staff was very inviting and accommodating. I was fortunate enough to get a corner room with spectacular views. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable, and they're dog friendly! If your looking for a great place to stay within walking distance of Fanueil Hall, Nine Zero is the place to stay!
Comfortable bed. Beautiful furnishings. Excellent service.
Loved the attention to detail liked comped champagne and strawberries for our anniversary, our wedding pic in the room and the free parking we got by using the secret code, currently 'cannonball'. We missed the 5-6 free cocktail hour but were given 2 glasses of wine on check in. Make sure you know the secret code and join their rewards program for perks. Nothing!
Very nice location and the staff were tremendous. The room was well decorated and clean. The service was outstanding.
Hotel was very clean, staff was very helpful and friendly, great central location! Nothing
Great location. Wish the valet parking was complimentary
Appreciated the glass of wine at check-in and the staff were polite. "Upgraded" room was very tiny and the bathroom shower had mildew and stains. The bed was comfortable until I woke up with a bite mark on my leg and wrist. This place is overpriced and feels like it hasn't been maintained like other hotels. Won't stay here again.
Where to begin from the location to the staff to the rooms. Really could not ask for more!
Phenomenally friendly staff, offered us free wine and Cokes and party bag for the kids. Unnecessarily nice!
Excellent quality, facilities, location and service Charge of 30c per minute for Internet access was excessive and seemed unnecessary while paying about $300 per night for the room
Excellent to stay, but cost is very high for business people.
Staff was great. Helpful and friendly. I stay here for work as a united airlines Capt on my Boston layover, and we are treated so well that I brought my wife up for a weekend stay .. We walked to Fanual Hall, and Aquarium.. Shopped. Went to a Red Sox -Yankees game ( Sox won A bit pricey. But hey .. Its downtown Boston
It needs updating. I thought it was too expensive for the quality of the rooms
le confort de la chambre late check out was not possible! Le concierge didn't inform me although I asked that the limousine driver xwsa waiting for me. I took finally 35 min until I could find out!
Staff was very friendly and enthusiastic Dated & Tired, especially considering the price tag
The atmostphere and staff were exceptional I didn't get to stay longer
The building is excellent .The rooms are not big enough.
Very attractive lobby area; extrenely personable and professional staff. Bathrooms and towels were not what a hotel charging $700/night should be offering.
On the first day of our trip -the water and chocolates in our room. The fact that each time I called the concierge or front desk they referred to me by name, all in all it was very obvious that the Langham goes the extra mile that sets them apart. No
Excellent service, polite, helpful staff, really could not be faulted. Although expensive, you get what you pay for! No
Staff very helpful. The price of brunch.
The location cannot be beat if you want to be close to Quincy Market/North End/Downtown. Also, all the rooms are suites with a spacious living space. This is also a historic building so be sure to browse the museum quality displays throughout the lobby and hallways. Don't miss the observation deck!! Bathroom was tiny - I understand wanting to have access from bed and living rooms but that doesn't really work in a 'smaller than average' hotel bathroom. Take out the big dining table, change to a drop leaf and steal 6 feet to expand the bathroom. Btw, if you are a light sleeper, request a high floor.
We really enjoyed our stay at Marriott Custom House during our recent family vacation to Boston. The location is ideal and the villas provided plenty of space for everyone. The observation deck was fun and we went up there several times during our stay. We would definitely return to the Custom House again.
