    The room is clean and the hotel mostly friendly. Internet works well. The Island Creek is just downstairs and we dined there regularly when we resided in Boston. It's a great restaurant.

    The 25$ resort fee is an outrage. For what? A bit of pastry and coffee that must be consumed by 0900. Water that is complimentary for most people at Marriott and Hilton. The size of the soap is a joke.... not much bigger than a quarter.

    This was a gorgeous hotel that offered lovely amenities. Large room that was beautifully appointed, chic lobby and great staff.

    The only negative on this was that it was a bit of a walk to all the action, but super close to Fenway Park. The only other small thing was there was no coffee/tea machine in the room, which most hotels provide.

    Staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel was clean.

    Daily resort fee. Location too far from sights. Traffic noise kept us awake at night.
