    The location was good and the staff were very nice. The rooms were very clean and the bed was excellent.

    The shower made an extremely loud high pitched sound, but I got used to it after a while. The door to the room had about a 1/2"+ gap from the bottom of the door to the floor, so I could clearly hear everyone in the hallway at night.

    It was very clean and in a wonderful spot with great views of the Boston skyline from our room.

    The bathroom did not have an exhaust fan. I asked to have the GM call me and was intoduced to a woman who stated she was the GM however when I got to our room all the literature stated a gentleman was the GM and so did the clerk when we checked out. If I asked to speak with the GM that is who I should have been talking to.

    Great view from the room, very comfortable bed.

    There was no bath tub in the room and I could hear the lift all the time, which was not too nice...

  • Couple

    The location of the hotel (close to Mass Transit, mall and a number of colleges/universities) was the best part of the hotel. The outdoor bar overlooking the Charles was fantastic. The summer days deal was awesome (boat ride on the Charles, free bike rental and ice cream). Room service was expensive but the quality of the food was good. Free wifi in the room was a plus as well.

    The room was very small although was well appointed. We didn't stay in the room all that much but if we had to it was tight for 2 people.

    Great location clean, large, and beautiful rooms. Convient to everything. Loved walking out the door and be able to run or bike the Charles river. Bikes available free ffor 2 hours.

    The interior design of the room, the outdoor pool and the location of the hotel.

    My friend recommended the hotel and I was looking forward to staying there for one night. I stayed in room 708 and there was a constant rolling sound, 2-3 times per minute. Maybe from the elevator or there was a maintenance corridor below/above and they pushed carriages/trolleys all night and day. I was so tired and jet lagged that I didn't deal with it. Later on when I mentioned this to the reception, the person servicing me called Taylor said two times that I could have called the reception about it. I felt like it was my fault that I didn't deal with it. If I stay there the next time, I'll know to deal with the strange noises instantly.

    We loved it. I had some high expectations and they were met in every way and I was surprised at the relatively low cost. Thank you!

    The service and convenience to local attractions was a plus.

  • Single

    Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Very convenient location for Boston room facilities were very high standard- beds were very nice, good quality linens. Entertainment very good quality.

    The pool was filthy! I only went in it once and I have come out in a terrible rash. The water was cloudy and green and there were dirt stains on the pool. The 'spa' was a small corridor and the door didn't shut on the women's sauna. That area of the hotel needs some serious attention with much better pool hygiene including better poolside shower facilities.

  • Family with children

    Place was very beautiful.

    Well I just didn't like that people have to pay for parking.

  • Single
    7.8

    I would like to see a recycling program in place. Guests must throw away a tremendous amount of plastic, glass, and aluminum. I'm sure the hotel throws away thousands of pounds a week as well. It is the right thing to do, and would enhance your "green" profile. Thanks.

    the Hotel was extremely functional, location was perfect, staff were very helpful.

  • Group of friends
    5.0

    We stayed at the Hotel Tria at the Alewife the week before and in a lot of ways it was a superior hotel..quality of towels, extra blankets (none in the room here), room space, bed comfort, friendly bar staff plus a lack of the exhorbitant mark up on everything from overseas calls to water that the Sonesta has.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Well sited in a quiet area with access to transport and a Mall opposite. Just a few hundred metres from the science Museum/Duck Tours etc

    Would have been nice to have a full American Breakfast on the menu for a stsart to the longer days.
