We stayed over Columbus weekend 2010. It is pricey but everything is in this area. The room was a nice size with a small kitchenette that we didn't need for just a few days but would probably come in handy if we stayed longer. The kids were comfortable on the pull out (with their own TV) and the huge bed was sooo comfortable after a day of walking all over Boston. It really felt like a treat to be staying in a piece of history. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the nice lady at the front desk gave our kids info on the history of the hotel and told them where to look for the falcons roosting upstairs. One of the best things about the hotel is having your own personal outside observation deck (we were up there several times). There is a game room for the kids located behind the clock (very cool). The kids played while we had a drink in the small bar. Location is key too! It's great to be right at Quincy Market and 10 minute walk to Little Italy. The only downside is that you are close to the bars and they are noisy at 2am when the patrons are leaving. We were on a lower floor overlooking the Black Rose. We would definitely stay again but ask for a higher floor.
