Location, service, & atmosphere are all perfect
The weather! It was freezing and we were unprepared
Staff were excellent, the hotel was very welcoming and the food was great
Lovely historic hotel in converted firehouse. Very charming. Great comfortable bed and rooms. Fantastic breakfast and restaurant. Great location at MIT in Cambridge.
They called and cancelled room on me even though I was given a confirmation number - at 8:30 pm the night of check in! I had to try and find a room standing on the street corner - totally unacceptable.
Friendly, accommodating staff, great location
