    Poor facilities, not even tea/coffee facilities in room. Wouldn't allow more than 30 min later checkout. Couldn't provide fresh milk.

    Excellent location, just a short walk to Harvard Yard and the Sanders Theater. A pleasant, older building. Very helpful staff. Interesting guests, a well educated international crowd. Excellent value for money.

    Excellent location for my needs; good value; cool room on some very hot days. Though the property appears tired and bit run-down, it remains a good value for Boston. I would recommend for business travelers or others on a budget.

    Arrival was a bit annoying in that the front desk person was not available for about ten minutes and the front door was locked, so I had to wait on the porch for this person to return from whatever he was doing. That should not happen
