        The rooms were very nice, spacious, the bed was very comfortable. I like the European flare.

        My only disappointment was that there wasn't a coffee pot in the room. Also, a flag or awning or sign out front with the name of the hotel on it would have been helpful. We drove by it twice, it's just not your typical hotel entrance.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The design, the modern room and bathroom, the staff, the view

        Elegant hotel in a great location for a quick sighspewing trip to Boston. A little expensive but very modern with staff that make you feel at home.

        Everything!

        That Internet was not included in the price of the room and that the connection was very slow sometimes.

      • Couple
        7.0

        Location, comfort.

        Breakfast could have been better for the price paid for the stay. Also, there were 2 additional taxes on top of the sales tax upon checkout (Occupancy Tax, Convention Center Tax), which I should have been made aware of prior to my stay.

      • Couple
        9.2

        One of the best hotels I ever stayed. Beautiful, quiet and perfect location close to everything. A great experience!

        Breakfast area kind of chaotic, staff overwhelmed... There was a wedding group in the hotel, more staff would have been necessary to handle the situation.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        This is a "minimalistic" hotel however the furnishings etc were of a high standard. The hotel staff were very accommodating. Access to the key attractions of Boston were within easy reach particularly the quayside and "old Boston" - complementary continental breakfast was provided even though none was expected. Reception were prepared to negotiate on late checkout on final day.

        The restaurant was disappointing with restricted and expensive menu. Wireless access was expensive although halfway through our stay the hotel did offer a free access code. Provision of facilities for flight check-in and printing was available but at a cost which was excessive- $20 (reception did inform me subsequently that they offer a free service for printing boarding cards although I am at a loss to see how this would work)

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Excellent service and room was decidedly upscale and comfortable. Innovative design with integrated walk-in shower in room. Very good continental breakfast included in room rate. Close to major attractions such as Faneuil Hall, North End, Boston Common, Harbour etc. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

        Nothing.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The blending of modern decor with historic charm. The location is excellent for navigating the city. The staff (hotel & restaurant) were always friendly, helpful and presented themselves in a professional manner. We would stay at the Ames again and will recommend it to our family & friends in California.

      • Group of friends
        5.4

        The fact that internet is not included in the daily rate and must be paid per device is very unsatisfactory. Furthermore, the lack of variety at breakfast, the lack of robes and slippers in the room are unnaceptable given the daily rate the hotel charges.

      • Family with children
        8.8

        Very nice. Rather European. Room was quite small but functional, clean great linens. Front desk was very friendly.

        A mere shear curtain blocking the shower not for everyone. We had our grown daughter sharing room and was "interesting". $42/Might for valet should have been advertised as really is a cost of the stay since there is no parking and was a hiden charge.

      • Couple
        10.0

        The hotel was fantastic, the hotel staff were very helpful and the rooms were spotlessly clean. It was centrally located and we could not have chosen a better hotel in our eyes.
