When I booked through Travelzoo, I was quoted a rate of $89/night. When I went to check out, they charged me a "travelzoo rate" of $159/night. They were nice about it, once they understood the issue, but it caused me a lot of stress and it was not a quick fix. I'd already left, so I came back to sort it. I ended up canceling my plans for that day because I was in a bad mood by that point.

The fact that it was right next to a Whole Foods!

Boston area hotels can be expensive. This was a great deal. We were there for appointments at the VA hospital. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There was a small gym that was convenient. I booked 2 nights but did it separately which I told them before I came and when we checked in. This somehow confused them so that we were locked out of our room the second day. Not a big deal but puzzling.

The open concept to the lobby/bar and modern furnishings were very welcoming. The enclosed outdoor fire pit area was also lovely.

The bathrooms did not have towel racks or shelves so it was difficult to find space for personal care items, towels, and clothes.

Service was great! Sabrina, in particular, made sure a room was ready when I requested early check-in, so that was greatly appreciated. Also, the bartender/coffee maker (I'm sorry I didn't catch his name) was very accommodating as well. He happened to be at the front desk when I requested a tube of toothpaste (forgot mine at home), then rushed to put coffee on when I told him I was headed to the restaurant for that. Great service all around!

My only complaint is that there is no coffee maker in the room. It's readily available in the restaurant downstairs and in the on-site Starbucks, but I need a cup to get myself out the door!

Desk staff at check in were engaged in conversation and didn't even acknowledge our presence for a few minutes. It didn't feel like a good start!
