From the moment we drove up to the time we checked out the customer service was excellent. We were greeted curbside by friendly and attentive staff. At check in, Nick, the concierge was very pleasant and made us feel extremely welcome. Anytime I called guest services for something, they never made me feel rushed or that I was inconveniencing them in any way. I called one night for suggestions on restaurants and I had a couple additional questions and they called the restaurant for me for clarification. We had never been to Boston and their welcoming atmosphere truly set the tone for our entire trip. The room was very clean and spacious and the location is perfect for what we needed. I can not get over the exceptional service. From top to bottom, this was an amazing trip. I highly suggest this hotel and we will definitely be booking here again for any future trips.
