Friendly staff, clean room, superb matresses.
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.
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.
I encountered a few problems and the staff acted immediately to accommodate me.
Nice doormen Cramped rooms that were not sound proof. No character to the rooms
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
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
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
Cleanliness, bedding. I really missed a coffee pot in room and thought wifi should be gratis
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!!
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.
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 great close to everything. Price for the location you cant beat it Parking was a block away and it cost $32 with there discount.
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,
Location was next to Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market...good price for that area Couldnt control temp in the room..froze all night
Great location , clean, spacious, comfortable beds, quiet Parking. A few blocks away and cost an extra $30. No breakfast.
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.
Rooms were small and dingy and poorly lit.
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
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 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!
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
no micro oven in the room
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!
Location and room size Staff, difficult to work with. Room was not clean (mold in the bath tub, sinks leaked)
Convenience was superb.
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.
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...
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 !!
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.
staff was terrific and service oriented. price for valet parking was steep.
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.
Excellent location to view all of Boston by foot. We had a wonderful stay and would stay again.
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
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.
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.
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
Sumptuous luxury, privacy, waterfront location, Old North End proximity 500 building felt removed from the hotel and lobby: more residential; try for east-facing room in the building facing the harbor. Difficult to get to due to traffic: allow extra time
The location was perfect for touring the freedom trail and it is easy to get to and from the airport. The location and rooms were beautiful and very comfortable. The best part was the front desk. I wish I would have gotten her name. She was so nice and helpful and remembered us the next day. We were also able to get free early check in and late check out. Mind you we stayed there in February. I will defenetly go back. I can't think of anything
Location and the staff
Great service. I lost my credit card and the concierge was very helpful in getting that resolved. I had to wait 25 minutes for the valet to bring my car for pick up
Good location. Very quiet and peaceful. The bathroom counter was nice. For the price and quality of hotel I was very disappointed. It was an extra $10 for wifi. The shower was subpar and the toilet had terrible pressure/flushing capabilities. We ordered room service for breakfast and it was delivered cold. There was nothing spectacular about the breakfast and it was $98 for two people.
Beautiful property, great staff. Had to pay for WiFi and no pool.
Very clean rooms, super friendly staff, great room service and the shower products are awesome! Mini bar in the room only had soda and tonic water- no alcohol.
The ambience is cool--contemporary and funky with a sense of humor and fun thrown in. The staff at the front desk were wonderful--friendly, helpful, welcoming. Nice touches--daily complimentary wine bar in the lobby, fun animal print bathrobes in the room. The location is great, walked everywhere. Oh, and it's pet friendly! It would be nice to have a coffee maker in the room. When I asked at the desk, however, they brought one right up.
Rooms and bathrooms were nice, fresh coffee service and water in lobby nice touch. Morning staff was lovely. Convenient to wharf and north end. Lobby has no seatng area at all other that the restaurant, where the music blared way too loud all day. My son was resting in the room and there was literally no quiet place in the hotel to go check email or make a few calls. 2 of my 4 nights there were way overpriced, priced dropped significantly over the weekend. No concierge to help with suggestions, directions, etc. when limited front desk staff is engaged with guests.
We had a great experience. The costumer service and location were excellent.
Within walking distance of everything in the north end which is most of what you would want to see in Boston. The accommodations were well worth the price.
Like the vibe and decor Rooms were pretty small and gym was tiny
The room design was modern and clean, but the size of it was really difficult to move around in. The front desk people were so nice and helpful. For the price, I really do not believe I got my money's worth. The AC was set on some Eco setting that only ran when there was movement in the room, it was hot and uncomfortable and i slept terribly. There was no soap in the shower and our view was of a pile of garbage out the window. Also, to valet park it was 47 dollars, which should be free. after spending 355 on a small room.
The room was fabulous; clean pretty and had amenities in case you forgot anything! Staff was friendly and helpful! 24/7 valet parking with come and go access As you please. Also cheapest pRking in the area.
They let me book this hotel. I arrived only to find that the Kayak system had listed it as available and accepted my money but not secured me a room. The hotel had to turn me away and I had to go find another hotel. It sucked.
Location The size of rooms bathroom layouts and more....
Everyone was extremely nice and helpful! I'm a NYer so that means a lot!
I loved the modern interior design and how friendly and helpful the staff was. My wife and I stayed at the Boxer for two nights for our mini-moon. We told the front desk staff that it was our honeymoon, and then about ten minutes later, a piece of red velvet cake and a bottle of champagne arrived at our door, completely on the house. We were very impressed. My only complaint is that the rooms in the pictures from the website looked bigger than our actual room.
Valet guy. Drawing on room wall. N/A Front desk staff - rude, unhelpful, not knowledgeable. Literally acted like cared zero shits about your hotel and your guests. Upon check-in they seemed upset, acting like our arrival was imposing on their evening. It was raining and we requested an umbrella, which meant she had to leave the counter, this had her huffing and puffing. No greeting upon entry, ever. Not accommodating, whosoever. Just poor, poor service.
Services was fantastic at this hotel. The room was ready right away, and my request for extra's in the room was honored. Ease of taxi service, and just across the street from the T and garden.
Location, beds and pillows very comfortable. Clean except for under sink and mold in shower. Room was extremely small, bairly ok for one person, VERY cramped for two.
Staff was fantastic!! Front desk, bartenders, valet...everyone! Super personable and accommodating! I will remember most by name. Room was "loft-like", super cozy unique. Short walking distance to the water, aquarium, good bars and restaurants! We would definitely stay here again!
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, especially Fred! I'm not too keen on the standup shower. Sometimes it's nice to soak in a tub while on vacay.
Great location in center of city. Clean and well maintained. Unique and accentric feel. Thin walls, could hear everything going on in the hallway. Hard pillows, my neck and head hurt so bad in the morning. Tiny rooms.
We checked in, headed up to our room, and found a party going on in it. Upon reporting that to the front desk, they were completely confounded. They found another room (supposedly larger than the first) and gave us drink coupons for the inconvenience. No problem. The room was small. 6" between the end of the bed and the desk. But otherwise ok. So we headed down to the bar and ordered two dry martinis a tiny bit dirty. They were out of Stoli so the bartender gave us a premium Stoli. The drinks came back with so much olive brine that they were green. Not drinkable, so we decided to head out for dinner. Upon leaving the coupons we were told that they didn't apply to premium drinks. We suggested paying the difference (for undrinkable cocktails) and the bartender got an attitude and said "just forget it". Finally, upon leaving the next morning, the smallish elevator stopped on the next floor down and the housecleaner got on with her cart, a big garbage bag stuffed with laundry, and a huge gray garbage can on wheels. We were crammed into the back corner of the elevator with our bags. How strange!
Fun and incredibly hospitable staff. Great location and walking distance to bars/restaurants. Comfortable and modern room. Will stay here again!
Great service, great location, and a unique feel to the overall hotel.
I loved how nest and clean the room was. For two people the king bed room would be a bit crowded. The staff was very friendly and helpful with each contact I had with them. . I enjoyed it immensely.. Only the size of the room. It would be tight for more than one person.
Beautiful hotel, incredibly friendly staff, old fashioned luxury with modern touches, amazing bed
Clean room and lots of amenities. Great location and easy access to pretty much anything. We used point for the room. Cost is pretty high, so if considering cost with other hotels others could be a better value.
Staff permitted us to check in early. Excellent Location.
We love staying at this hotel. We had a great view of Quincy Market and the city landscape. We like being close to the North End. Our room was clean and comfortable The hallway on our floor was a little dirty. Used glasses and dishes placed outside of rooms waiting to be picked up along with some spilled food on the rug.
For $575 they could at least provide coffee and a morning newspaper. Bathroom was small and old.
The whole hotel was impeccably clean...wonderful. The room service was super fast. The location is close to so many great things in walking distance of hotel! The maid service was terrific; very friendly and thorough. The internet was fast - once you got on it. For a luxury hotel, internet connection is typically included in the price of your stay. As a Marriott rewards member I was surprised it was not free...apparently I was not at the right level. The parking was overpriced - one member of our group parked and $51 a day was extremely high. The cluster of cars, buses, taxes etc at the entrance was poorly managed. Pedestrians were at risk, guests at risk, and children at risk - there did not appear to be anyone in control of the flow of traffic coming in an out of the entrance area. High risk.
Clean, comfortable, GREAT location, excellent amenities, friendly staff, good restaurant and bar. Definitely will be my choice of place to stay when I return to Boston!
Maid service very good Front desk personal room outdated Charge for wifi Security staff at front door very very intimidating
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.
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.
Decently-sized rooms, USB outlets No fresh fruit for breakfast most days, wasteful (cleaners leave lights on, no option to not have towels replaced, etc.)
The only thing that I liked about the hotel, is Price. You get what you pay for...
The location is pretty much central and close to the subway and it walking distance of most attractions. The parking can be hard to find but it is the same all over the city. If you look hard enough you should be able to find some free parking on the street. We had an issue with the room since we booked a 2 double beds room, but they only had a room with a king size bed. But we were offered a suite with a pull out bed so it wasn't so bad.
The room was spacious and very clean. Valet parking was convenient and valet parking staff were very nice. Available information from staff was not accessible. My account was charged twice and I still cannot get a hold of a staff member to fix this problem and it has been 2 days.
We enjoyed the connvinence of it's location to the TD Garden, and well withing walking distance to the North End and Fanuel Hall. It was also clean and comfortable, with a great view of the Garden. Being close to the street we had to listen to traffic.
Very friendly people at reception desk! Accommodating and caring people working the breakfast time the Saturday of the Boston Marathon weekend. Very expensive (~ 300/night) but most/all hotels are expensive in Boston it seems and it was marathon weekend.
Bed was comfortable
The staff at the front desk were awesome. Thanks for everything.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. We saw a show at the TD Garden, two minute walk! Our room was clean- nice walk-in closet, kitchen area with microwave and sink & fridge- close to restaurants. Nice breakfast included. And the valet service made it so easy to get in and out. Going to see Neil Diamond at the TD Garden was awesome, reflecting on the trip we all agreed that the friendly, visible, accomodating hotel staff made the trip even better.
Right across the street from TD Garden, the single reason I chose this hotel. Exorbitant cost for basic lodging. Why this place costs the same per night as the harbor hotels I do not know...I guess they jack up the rate when there are games across the street. TV kept stuttering so every 5th word or so you'd miss. Now that I know the area, I will likely not choose this place again. Bars everywhere, loud people well into the night, garbage all over the streets, broken elevator. etc..
Got there late and left early, so this isn't super detailed review. Check-in was quick and the desk staff was professional and polite. Nice clean room. Comfortable bed.
