Happiness over the weekend! Posted May 25, 2015 on Expedia
My mom and I were looking to stay in the Commonwealth Avenue area for one night on Memorial Day weekend. We had Red Sox tickets for Sunday and booked a whale cruise on Saturday afternoon. Our train arrived one hour late which really could have started the weekend badly, but we were able to grab a cab at Back Bay station to the Eliot and they were friendly, efficient and understanding. They also upgraded our deluxe room to a suite upon arrival. We checked in, freshened up, and with the help of the doorman, got a cab down to Long Wharf. We arrived in perfect time to catch our whale watch tour which was phenomenal. After a 3 plus hour tour, we enjoyed dinner at Legal Seafood at Long Wharf, and caught a cab back to the hotel. Mom stayed on the pull out sofa which the staff had readied and I slept in the bed in the bedroom. It was very comfortable and we slept great (fvery quiet)!! We ordered room service and had bagels, muffins, banana bread, fresh fruit, oj and coffee from the inroom keurig. We spent the morning relaxing in the room. Then packed up, checked out and stored our bags for pickup that evening on the way out of town.. We enjoyed a nice lunch at La Voile on Newbury, the Red Sox game, a nice walk and shopping and dinner at Piatinni's on Newbury. Walked back to the hotel, very quickly retrieved our bags and again were provided a cab back to the train station! Very convenient and friendly!!! Definitely will stay again!
