    Location, great breakfast, very comfortable bed & pillows!! Friendly staff- Really enjoyed the complimentary glass of wine each evening.

    Had to wait 90 minutes after checkin time (3 pm) before our room was cleaned and ready. Had requested early checkin prior to arrival as we arrived at 1:30. We had been up since 3am and were ready to relax in our room.

    Location right in between Harvard Uni and MIT. Easy access from airport and to Boston city centre.

    Small bar/restaurant area Rooftop seating area was closed (being renovated). But this one of the reasons why we choose this hotel. Some service was really good, other was mediocre.

    The breakfast was wonderful. Love all the decorating in the hotel. The staff was friendly, helpful, and very nice. Would definitely return. Also enjoyed the wine in the evening.

    Bathroom a little small and hard to navigate with two people.
