        Convienent and the breakfast they served was awesome and free.

        No pool. Elevators were to small and had a difficult time getting the luggage cart in, and very narrow hallways. We had to pay $39 to park the car and the price of the hotel was way to much for what we got.

        Location to td Garden.

        We booked 2 rooms (1 queen bed & 1 w/2 double beds) two months in advance of our trip. When I called the hotel with a question 2 days before our trip, they only had us down for 1 room. They told us they were all booked up and couldn't give us the 2nd room we had reserved, even though I had written confirmation of our reservation. I then called Booked.net and your staff was great. They called the hotel and got them to agree to give us the rooms we had reserved. I even spoke with the office manager the day before our trip to assure that they would honor our reservation. She assured us that they would. When we arrived, they gave us 2 queen rooms. This was a problem since my three teenage daughters would be sharing a room. Their staff was very rude and didn't even have a cot available for them. After much back and forth between them, us, and Booked.net, they finally offered to find another (1) room at another hotel. But we didn't want to split up our family. Also, by that point it was 6:00 and we had tickets to a 7:00 show. It was really too little, too late. If they had just been honest with us - even the day before, we would have made other arrangements ourselves.

        The staff was very helpful and considerate. However, they had no record of my reservation through Booked.net. But every attempt was made to get me a room in the sold-out hotel, and luckily that was accomplished. Front desk and valet staff were invaluable.

        Room was dark

        Very nice staff

        Complete rip-off on the valet service

        The location was great. The room was clean.

        The room was very hot and there was no relief available. The elevator was broken and we were expected to climb stairs with luggage,

        when I arrived at the hotel to check in I was informed that my room had one double bed and a pull out couch. Through Booked.net I had reserved a double room with two double beds and the hotel informed me that the room I reserved was not available. They said that if I had booked the room through them my room would have been available. So one adult got to sleep on the bed and I had to sleep on the pull out that had only an inch and a half of foam over the spring frame. Originaly the hotel charged me full price for two doubles until I complained. The pull out was horrible and I would have been mor comfortable sleeping on the floor. I was totaly dissatified with this whole process.

      • Family with children

        The convenience of going to a Celtics game and having the hotel right across the street was perfect. The manager there was amazing - we had reserved a room with two double beds, but they were overbooked, so she offered us a comp room - this was really nice of her and greatly appreciated - she went out of her way to give us the best service. Valet service was also very convenient and our car was safe and we didn't have to use it once.

        The Elevator !!!!!! omg took forever....can't imagine if I had a disability or couldn't use stairs - that Elevator certainly is ancient.

        The location was so convenient! We attended an event at TD Garden, and it was literally across the street. The rate was a little pricey, but well worth it for the location. They went above and beyond by allowing us to check in early when our train came in 4 hours before check in. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. Highly recommend. I will stay again!

        I loved the location of the hotel. Everything that we visited was within walking distance. I also loved the fact that the hotel was willing to hold our bags before and after checkout, very convenient.

        Location was great. Staff was friendly and helpful. Romm was clean and comfortable

        Elevator was slow but that was only thing i could think of.

        Across the street from the Boston Garden easy access to Celtics and Bruins games. Hotel rooms are very nice.

        Not very close to the musuems and tourist attractions but was turned out okay because the town trolley tookk us to almost every attraction.

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        The staff was very helpful with directions and information. I recommend this hotel to anyone needing access to the TD Garden and trolley tours in the city.
