Ames Hotel

A good location, near many historical sites. Also many places to eat. The breakfast nook in the hotel was closed so they gave $10. debit cards per person for a very local restaurant. The only drawbacks were, this hotel is built over the AmTrack so you feel the trains during the day, but NOT at night, also, it seems this Hotel is on a main route to the hospital so it can get noise. Overall a good place to spend a night.

Central location

Great boutique hotel right in the middle of the financial district. Hotel is very well appointed. Room was small but super clean and like new. Would definitely recommend for business/single travelers.
