This hotel was outstanding in every way. It is located on the edge of the Back Bay of Boston: close enough to walk to all the great shopping, restaurants, and public gardens; but not right in the heart of the noise and crowds of Newbury and Boylston streets. The lobby welcomes you with a classy, beautiful, minimalist style. All of the staff are incredibly friendly and always available. There is a hip little pub downstairs that has a nice upscale scene at night. The room was large, bright, clean, and had an enormous and modern bathroom. Our ironing board was broken, and a new one was brought to us as soon as we asked. The housekeeping staff did a wonderful job of cleaning and, like everyone else there, were very friendly. All in all, this is definitely the nicest place I've stayed in Boston, and one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at anywhere (that includes places like the Waldorf Astoria, Hyatt Regency, Omni Hotels). It's a bit expensive, but if you're willing to spend the money, it's definitely worth it - you won't be disappointed.
