Decent Stay for Quick Trip Posted Oct 23, 2013
The ride to Boston took more time than it should have, so I can only comment on the few hours I was there. The staff was very nice. The doorman was kind and directed me to where I could get junk food at the late hour I had arrived. The room (Plaza Petite) was clean and neat-- small but perfect for one person spending the night, maybe two if they are a couple snuggling and not staying too long, as there is not much storage space. I was on the 9th Floor. Things I liked that people will appreciate: --kind and friendly staff --clean room --restaurant on site --proximity to MBTA, right down the block (green line) --proximity to South Station, which was about a $6 cab --location in Boston, right by the theater district Things that some people care about but don't really bother me: --building is kind of old, so there are some cracks and discoloring in places --the view from my room was of a brick wall --concierge is only available until 9PM -- there was a wedding rehearsal party going on; I imagine you felt the noise on the lower floors Things that actually bothered me: --couldn't figure out the thermostat, as my room was freezing... eventually just turned off the air --there was an evacuation of the hotel due to what was a false alarm, but when we got downstairs, there seemed to be no one offering information as to what was happening or what to do next... very disorganized --there are hardly any channels on the television, and some of the ones listed did not work. --you have to pay $12.95 for 24 hours of Internet in your room (the lobby is free, which explains why it was so crowded) Overall, a decent stay for one night. I basically checked-in, slept, and checked out.
