    A nice hotel with clean, spacious rooms near Fenway Park, about 10 min walk to Newbury street shopping, 15 min to Prudential Center. Comfortable bed, clean bathroom with high quality toiletries (Malin+Goetz), a nice, separate living area. Breakfast at the Eastern Standard Grill was excellent, well worth the extra$, weekend brunch was a deal, also great service by the courteous staffs. A Starbucks & a convenient store right next door. Hi speed Wifi's good. In all, we had a very pleasant stay there for the whole week.

    The first night, there was a very noisy neighbor and I could hear this lady arguing with someone quite clearly until 3am!! Horrible! Guess they checked out so the rest of the week was just fine, only some noise when people talked by the corridor. No in-room coffee/tea maker.
