8/10 Very Good

Generally good experience
Very convenient location; staff friendly and helpful; hotel very basic but clean. Only drawback -- strong chemical smell in the room, probably from cleaning agent. Opened the window to clear the air, but street noise then prevented sleep. Make sure rooms well ventilated!

8/10 Very Good

The hotel is very well located for those visiting their children at Harvard. The room is nice and clean. We had a lot of accessibility issues. My husband uses a wheelchair, and the day we arrived, the elevator was broken, and he had to go up two floors with difficulty. After that, we had many problems with the wheelchair-specific elevator, which gave access to the main elevator. Every time we tried to use it, laundry baskets were bloking the elevator, and for the last two days, the elevator was broken, which made our life very difficult.

Parking garage was not available . The reason I booked this hotel is the garage. They did not sent me a notice or an email. They just posted at the door of entrance to redirect customers. Thanks god it wasn’t in the rush hour. I drove around twice to read the poster.

good location to universities, river and stores. Property garage is under construction, but no notice is attached when booking. No compensation when parking other places. Mattress is terrible---too soft. Back pain after one night stay.

Beautiful area, hotel is under construction
The parking is under construction. Had to park down street with luggage. There are stairs to get into the elevator and no accommodation for the luggage to get to check in. The front desk gentleman was rude during check-in. At 7:50 am they started drilling on the roof of the hotel. When we called the front desk to ask why they hadn’t notified us of all the construction and noise the attendant hung up on us. It’s a beautiful area but there are plenty of hotels where I am sure the service is friendlier and the hotel is not under construction.
