Dr Gary, us1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Very relaxed, except for the 'thin' walls, so I could hear the loud children next door. However they did go to bed at 10pm and were super quiet after that.

This is a beautiful hotel with amazing views in a great location however the elevator was broken which was extremely inconvenient and our room had items left in it from the previous people who stayed in the room

Definitely recommend
We had a great two night stay at Royal Sonesta Boston. The staff was super helpful and accommodating and throughout our stay. Our kids loved the pool and breakfast. The room was warm, almost too warm! But overall a great place and I would recommend.

family trip to Boston
Location is great and the staff friendly. Room and view are nice however the room temp was too hot even with adjusting the thermometer we had to open the window to sleep. the popcorn ceiling was cracked and dirty and in need of repair but the rest of the room was very nicely updated. The pool water was cold so the kids did not want to swim. the room rate was also fair for the area. the line for coffee in the morning was too long so we went elsewhere for breakfast.

Wonderful front desk service, the room did not have a usb charger so I needed to leave my phone to charge with the front desk staff.

Great Hotel, Watch Room Layouts!
I like this hotel, but the room that I had very odd layout in the bathroom. Without being too graphic, let's just say the toilet was jammed too close to the shower door -- awkward!!
