AAA Inspector Notes
This is a contemporary yet historic hotel, built between 1904 and 1908. The interior is modern with a sublime and relaxing design and features luxurious furnishings. The color palette of warm grays and creams in the minimalist-style furnishings, the exquisite bed linens with plump pillows and the high-tech TV streaming should ensure a delightful stay. Smoke free premises. 242 units. 6-11 stories, interior corridors. Bath: shower only. Accessibility (Call).

Really enjoyed
Pros: Very convenient for downtown Boston.
Cons: Surprised that the barman wouldn't make a Bloody Mary but suggested we go to a boozer around the corner instead! However the cocktails he did make for us were excellent. The maid did not replace used mugs or tea/coffee for the second day

Truly just mediocre.
Pros: The hotel is perfectly modern, and the lobby is spotless. The staff in general were just average. Some were great and others just seemed to hate their job. (I will say the guy on sat late night/sun early am at the desk was absolutely phenomenal and ridiculously attentive!) The location of the Godfrey is seriously ideal. It’s easy to get to and close to everywhere in the city. Shockingly quiet for the area. Amazingly comfortable beds and linens. The shower is dreamy good! It seems they know when they mess up and try to make up for it a little. (Coffee and anniversary gift) The surprise happy anniversary card, champagne, chocolates, and coffee shop vouchers were certainly the highlight and got The Godfrey almost a whole star in this review.
Cons: The staff when we first got there were not very friendly, or attentive in the least. Waited on the room for an hour and forty five minutes! (After we had already arrived thirty minutes after check in time.) The room was dirty when we finally were allowed to get in it. Not like it just had been quickly cleaned, just seriously not cleaned. The toilet definitely had not been cleaned since urine was dried on it and the seat had black stuff(?) on the underside. The rugs had crumbs and pieces of paper in almost every area. The couch had crumbs on the seats and arms. The desk had pieces of food and styrofoam on the top of it. The elevators are operated with the room card, but nobody told us. Another guest ended up informing us not any staff. It’s pretty degrading to have guest laugh at you then show you where the card reader is. Elevator room door is propped open with a ripped up cardboard box The view from 712 is a storm trooper pointing their gun at you. I get it’s beyond their control but just iced the cake honestly.
