The room I stayed smell awful. The water took quite a while to get warm/ hot. The bathroom wall had black stuff on (it might be permanent) but it made it look dirty.

OK hotel. Bad experience
We were scared after reading reviews that the hotel would have been overbooked and would be left with no room. When we reached and the front desk said the reservation got cancelled for overbooking, I felt my fear was coming true. But he informed that he booked another cheaper room and would be refunding the difference. He was helpful and kind. After 1 day, no news from, so we contacted the customer service which after 2 hours settled everything. Such a pity to loose that time when being on vacation. customer service was helpful too. Need to mention that the same night 2 other couples didn't get any room due to overbooking. Not sure if the real issue comes from the reservations platform or from the hotel, but this is scary. The room itself and furniture is very old but clean enough. The bed was comfortable and we got hot water to shower. It was enough for our short 2 nights stay but the fridge and the microwave didn't seem to be working if this is important. Location is a +, green T line is just 5 min walk away.

Very Disappointing for $300 but I guess that is the rates in Boston. Would have much rather pay $120 and get a decent hotel
