This is a very well-located hotel if you want to go to Boston but avoid the traffic nightmare. You can walk to Boston in 30 minutes or so (great walk along the river and across the bridge with spectacular view of the city). Relatively close to highways as well. The place was quiet despite construction across the street at the time. Very friendly staff. The ArtBar has a good dinner menu, though I wish it had a more diverse beer selection (a few local craft beers would be nice). There's a place for breakfast which serves Starbucks coffee and some breakfast pastries. As a "full breakfast" person, I had to get breakfast elsewhere, so it would be nice if ArtBar could be set up for full breakfast. This is a more expensive hotel that I would usually stay at, but for me the possibility of just parking there on arrival and going everywhere on foot during my stay made it worth it - no worrying about traffic, parking or having a couple of drinks when out and about. I'd definitely stay there again.

The organization of the room is not friendly, which made people feel not so spacious. The bathroom is very big, the bedroom is crowded with limited space!
