Pros: The hotel is in perfect reach to Logan airport: you can take the blue train feom the airport and ride it 4stops til the final station, BOWDOIN- from here it is a 4 min walk! We had to stay over in Boston for a night on our way ro Bermuda, so it was perfect
Cons: The hotel seems to have had its best shape a couple of years ago. The minibar fridge in our room was leaking and the carpet wet. I asked if i can print travel documents from a USB stick and i was pointed to the PC opposite of the reception, but it didn't work.

Pros: Front desk staff were friendly and happy to give advice etc. Nice hotel with funky rooms. Room we had was a bit noisy at night - can turn the fridge off but still noise from air con or something else.
Cons: We had breakfast on two days in the hotel. One day (Sunday) the service was great - the next day it was very poor. While the hotel is quite central, the choice of restaurants very close to the hotel is not good

Pros: The staff! Very helpful and welcoming and happy! Loved the L'octaine toiletries. Free bikes were a good idea too but it rained during my visit.
Cons: The bed platforms! Perhaps if they were painted white they would become part of the bed and maybe missed a little more! They are now the colour of the carpet - beware!

Pros: The staff was extremely helpful and kind. The room is good but not big if you plan to have a meal for four persons. The location is great, specially if you are a sport fan.
Cons: Boston is a busy street and the windows should provide a better sound proof of the surroundings.
