This hotel for the amount I paid was really above my expectations in terms of service. Location is very central to the historic district, entertainment, food shopping. The hotel itself has a rich history and great to wonder through it. Would stay here again.
The staff at the back hotel bar was friendly, excellent and accommodating when the kitchen was about to close in 5 minutes. He even offered to get Guinness on tap from the front bar the Last Hurray. Rooms were clean and they were able to accommodate us with a better view. Bed is comfortable and linens are nice thread count. Decor is classic, wood paneled, gold, red and mustard yellow-- and reminded us of Stephen King's The Shining (where the film was made). Wifi is not included if you book through a third party-- they should change this policy as a courtesy. Drainage in tub was a little slow but this is true of most Boston older buildings.
Had to move rooms 3, almost 4, times. The whole situation was handled very poorly until we finally were helped by a manager. Just wish it did not have to get that far... Overall, the hotel is extremely outdated, struggled to control the temperature in the room and the walls were so thin we heard a screaming child all night. Images online are extremely deceiving and lead to a disappointing experience as a whole.
Nice Location Room was tiny, outdated decorations, you spend hundreds on a room and they want to charge you $10 day for internet. Stay somewhere else !
Location was close to most points of interest in downtown/waterfront Boston. Large lobby and helpful staff. Clean. Would rather have traded nice large entrance and lobby area for a better room size and traded the standard (double) bed for a queen size. Price for what we received was a little on the expensive side. Hotel claims to be 4 star but it doesn't quite make that level. WiFi should have been included as is becoming standard at hotels of this level
Samantha was great as we were checking in. We were a little early for check in so she said the hotel would hold our bags while we toured the city. She came through on the promise of a room with a better view. So happy with the room that over looked Kings Chapel and Old City Hall. The hotel is right in the middle of everything, easy walking distance to anything. Beds were comfortable. Room was a little small but wont stop me from staying again. No free WiFi.
Rooms small. Views terrible. Bathroom really small. If you can, select another hotel. Small. Needs renovations
Although small, the room was comfortable and the shower quite lovely. Plenty of hot water in the morning. A blizzard was expected so I decided to check out a day early, and this was hassle free. I did not ask for the name of the person who helped me with the checkout, but she was very polite and extremely helpful. The door man and valet folks were quick to bring my car and wish me a safe journey. Overall a very pleasant stay and I was able to accomplish that which I was in town for. I found sleep very difficult due to the noise level throughout the first night of my stay, which was a Tuesday. Many drunk people coming to rooms late very loud in the hallway and then one couple in the room next to mine arguing until approximately 4am.
Not a detail was missed. Truly a 5-star experience!
Location is fantastic--easy walking distance to all the places of interest. Hotel is itself a historical landmark. Room was rather small, no free wifi.
When we arrived the hotel was sold out and did not go or our "guaranteed reservation" for a double room. We were instead offered a full size bed and a cot for the same rate even though the room sells for $50 less. Spent most of our night on the phone with Kayak who didn't care. Says it's non refundable yet how they can say it's a guaranteed reservation when clearly it's a maybe! Horrible customer service by hotel manager and kayak. Hotel didn't offer to call around or find other accommodations for us.
Rooms were clean, Staff pleasant. Nice gym. Love the security card elevator feature. Should be in all hotels. Elephant castle is always pleasant. I didn't like that my room didn't have an ironing board & safe. In my opinion those two should be a no brainier & standard.
- Simple check in and check out procedure. - Some complimentary amenities in the morning (free coffee and fruit) - Good location for business - Not the newest facility - could stand an upgrade for the carpeting, floors and bathroom - Communal iron and other in-room amenities takes some getting used to - Not recommended for families traveling with children as there's nothing for them to do on-site.
Bathroom was pretty small.
Gym - small
Extremely dirty. Unclean pillows and mattress. Not washed bathrooms.
Receptionist clerks responsive to questions and pleasing traveler. The bathroom shower was excellent. The heating unit in the room was noisy. The breakfast was skimpy; commercial granola bars, oranges, bananas, coffee from machine (all impersonal).
Thin walls; heard neighbors
Great location, rooms were clean, a lot of ports/outlets Room is kind of small, a bit pricey for the size of the room
The TV and shower are excellent as is the location of the hotel. Knowing how expensive downtown Boston hotels are, I appreciate being able to stay in the heart of the city at such a low cost. Sadly, the staff isn't very friendly. They always act like they are doing you a favor if asked a question or reporting the elevator malfunctioning!!!!
The hotel looked nicer online to be honest. The staff were pretty great. House keeping was really good with fixing the room after i called about the bed being dirty. They left a nice note and some snacks/drinks as well. The TV was really nice. Our room was not very well kept. It was dusty, the bed hadn't been changed I believe, the sheets and pillow case was dirty and hairy, and the bathroom smelled like ciggaretes and was kind of dirty. the room was better than a motel so it wasn't the worst, just a little too pricey for the kind of quality you end up getting.
The bed was too firm. Had a hard wire around the edge of the mattress. No Iron, No Microwave, No Fridge. The shower was tiny.. really small. Not comfortable at all.
Don't leave your car in valet for over the 24 hour period or you will be charged $27 for 1 1/2 hours over... Still don't understand the Math there!
the hotel had an excellent location in the middle of town and right across from quincey market and all sorts of historic places also near the water. I did not like the colors in the room, not really funky and stylish
I encountered a few problems and the staff acted immediately to accommodate me.
Cleanliness, bedding. I really missed a coffee pot in room and thought wifi should be gratis
The location was perfect for seeing almost everything in Boston. You ar eright in the centre of things yet it is not noisy like some hotels right in the hub of town. 2 things - No coffee maker in the room...thankfully coffee shops were close by...and having to pay for Internet in business centre
The location was great especially in proximity to public transportation. The decor was simple and comfortable. The noise coming from the hallway and room next door was somewhat bothersome. The lounge on the groundfloor became a night spot on the weekend and guests are continuing to party going back to their rooms. The acoustics in the lounge were very loud as well.
Friendly staff, clean room, superb matresses.
Nice doormen Cramped rooms that were not sound proof. No character to the rooms
I actually like the location, since it's a little quiet. It's clean and hip and the staff is not in your face, but always helpful when you need. It's a tasteful place to stay.
Walking distance to all central Boston. Fantastic location Shower is a glass box dividing the bed room and bathroom. Perfectly ok if you're into that sort of thing
Room and hotel were nice. Location was very loud. It was friday night and the noise outside did not stop until after 4am (car horns, loud drunk prople, police sirens). We literally got no sleep due to the extreme noise.
Location was great close to everything. Price for the location you cant beat it Parking was a block away and it cost $32 with there discount.
The morning staff was nice The evening staff was a bit rude Had a lots of ants in our room!!
Great location , clean, spacious, comfortable beds, quiet Parking. A few blocks away and cost an extra $30. No breakfast.
Location was next to Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market...good price for that area Couldnt control temp in the room..froze all night
Close to work, comfortable bed. No in-room coffee, very weak shower stream, no breakfast buffet, no desk, AC that blows right on you, lights that are impossible to adjust.
My wife and I stayed in Boston for a quick getaway and were very impressed with the hotel. It offered a clean room with a comfortable bed. The location is the reason to book this hotel,
Rooms were small and dingy and poorly lit.
Very nice rooms No garage or valet
Very clean, modern look, staff was friendly and helpful. Unable to block out light from the street with blinds. No on site parking available. A better discount on local parking garage would make this hotel one of the best affordable stays in the city.
Location Value Room size Quiet heating/cooling system Staff The blinds. We had an interior room with the window looking out into the hallway. No big deal except that they used a $15 Wal-Mart blinds on that window and had a blue light in the hallway that was on all night long. The room was bright...all night long. If you're a person that is at all sensitive to light in your room at night, this may be a deal breaker. If you're management reading this, put up some blackout curtains or turn the stupid light off at night! This was my only qualm, otherwise it was a great place.
Centrally located, nice comfortable rooms. Breakfast available starting at 6am. Not enough in room lighting. A second mirror in bathroom would have been nice.
Convenience was superb.
Location is great for exploring Boston - but if you don't want to hear the late night crowds at Quincy market-make sure to speak up. The wine list in the restaurant is extremely overpriced and unfortunately I was served a bottle of wine that had not been stored properly and had turned. The bartender didn't agree but had the manager bring me a new bottle. That bottle was better than the first but still not tasting quite right-but we kept it because it was too much of a hassle.
Location Comfort Price was for location. Have stayed in HI Express with just as nice rooms for way less than half the money Charge for WiFi in room Do not ever touch mini bar. You will be charged
Excellent location to view all of Boston by foot. We had a wonderful stay and would stay again.
The hotel is very clean and the staff was really nice and helpful There was only Luke warm water in the shower and after walking around boston on a 10 degree night it really put a damper on our romantic get away !!
staff was terrific and service oriented. price for valet parking was steep.
Great location, staff was great, hotel was beautiful Air conditioning was loud, no in-room refrigerator, no vending machines, bed was a little too firm
Regulars at their restaurant, our first stay was all we needed. Handsome, friendly, warm lobby area; helpful, attentive staff. The in-hotel restaurant is actually very good -- and has a great bar area. The staff that delivers items to rooms are very friendly, speedy folk. Hotel is under renovation in part, so there are inconveniences until completion early next spring. When we were there, some desk staff are "in training" and not exactly use to speaking in English (!). The door-staff/valets are very helpful.
Loved the location, the amenities and the service. We've already booked our stay for next year! difficult to adjust the temp in the room - trying to cool the room meant the AC was on full blast.
Stayed here twice. Both for location. Room rates are pricey but you are in the midst of downtown Boston. The in-house restaurant was serving a $20 lobster dinner special which was fantastic. Valet parking is easy and staff is very courteous. There is an extra charge for valet at $49. Again very pricey but if you are staying for a few days it evens out. The room was a standard king that was comfortable, clean and spacious enough for two. We were provided a mini fridg gratis. The usual outrageously overpriced mini bar is present along with bottled water priced at the level of alcohol. Several newspapers are available free. Apparently the hotel is undergoing updates to its TV and wifi system. That's not a problem but there was no information provided at check in that it was happening. That is a problem. The TV acted up at start up and the wifi was cantankerous. Booting you off and causing you to sign in again and again. Quite slow also.
Location was great. Everything was in walking distance. Room was clean, bathtub and shower was fantastic. Room was a bit small, balcony was not a real balcony - very small step out balcony! A bit pricey for the size and amenities.
Nice room, helpful staff, reasonable prices Tried to book another night and was told they were completely sold out. Looked on kayak and saw availability...
The staff is so engaging and professional but not stuffy or uptight. The food at Moo (hotel restaurant) is unbeatable. You just can't beat the hotel vibe if you like personal service. I prefer more light than dark walls.
We liked the shower, the roof deck, but most of all we liked the design of the hotel/room.
Friendly, considerate service, hotel cars to take you around Boston and good food from room service, also dog friendly. They charged us more than our original quote
Fifteen Beacon was beautiful, staff was so helpful and servicing that we felt truly carefree on our vacation to Boston. The rooms were excellently appointed, fashionably contemporary and spacious. We loved the fireplace, the four post bed and the privacy, it was the perfect intimate setting amid the busy Boston city life.
I was thouroughly impressed with the service from the moment Valet opened our car doors till the moment Valet closed our doors at time of departure. I frequent 5 star hotels and must say this hotel, concierge and quality of service was unsurpassable. Perfect boutique hotel experience!
The location is perfect for a downtown stay and, while small, the rooms are nicely designed. Poor air conditioning. No bath in the room.
The staff was quite helpful and courteous, the room perfect and the food at the restaurant remarkable. The view from the rooftop is also outstanding.
The studio room was ok and nicely furnished It was incredibly noisy, street traffic, garbage trucks, whining and motors running kept you awake from 2.30-5.30am every morning. I am afraid teh hotel was unworkable as a business hotel, and only possible as a holiday hotel if you are a heavy sleeper or a hard drinker so that you could surivive teh noise. I'll never stay again nor would I recommend it. Sorry. Having booked 2 rooms and paid so much a night I was utterly disappointed. Complaining next morning to the front desk about the noise, the receptionist was talking to me and then said "hold on" picked up the phone and started arranging some other booking with the caller. Don't Americans do basic manners anymore? Please note this is not a complaint, it was rude, noisy and expensive.
Step out front door and you are on the freedom trail and ready to go Location
Appreciated the glass of wine at check-in and the staff were polite. "Upgraded" room was very tiny and the bathroom shower had mildew and stains. The bed was comfortable until I woke up with a bite mark on my leg and wrist. This place is overpriced and feels like it hasn't been maintained like other hotels. Won't stay here again.
The location of the hotel couldn't be more perfect. Upon arrival the staff was very inviting and accommodating. I was fortunate enough to get a corner room with spectacular views. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable, and they're dog friendly! If your looking for a great place to stay within walking distance of Fanueil Hall, Nine Zero is the place to stay!
Very nice location and the staff were tremendous. The room was well decorated and clean. The service was outstanding.
Loved the attention to detail liked comped champagne and strawberries for our anniversary, our wedding pic in the room and the free parking we got by using the secret code, currently 'cannonball'. We missed the 5-6 free cocktail hour but were given 2 glasses of wine on check in. Make sure you know the secret code and join their rewards program for perks. Nothing!
Phenomenally friendly staff, offered us free wine and Cokes and party bag for the kids. Unnecessarily nice!
Great value for money. Good restaurant -- functional for working and meeting. Decor and some amenities starting to get a little dated. Humidifier supplied did not really work. Internet in rooms slow.
Comfortable bed. Beautiful furnishings. Excellent service.
Hotel was very clean, staff was very helpful and friendly, great central location! Nothing
Where to begin from the location to the staff to the rooms. Really could not ask for more!
Great location. Wish the valet parking was complimentary
Within walking distance of everything in the north end which is most of what you would want to see in Boston. The accommodations were well worth the price.
Very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean. Good location. Small bathrooms with no place to put things. Not enough room in king room to put two suitcases without tripping over one of them. Parking per night $45 which to me is high. Prefer coffee in room.
Rooms and bathrooms were nice, fresh coffee service and water in lobby nice touch. Morning staff was lovely. Convenient to wharf and north end. Lobby has no seatng area at all other that the restaurant, where the music blared way too loud all day. My son was resting in the room and there was literally no quiet place in the hotel to go check email or make a few calls. 2 of my 4 nights there were way overpriced, priced dropped significantly over the weekend. No concierge to help with suggestions, directions, etc. when limited front desk staff is engaged with guests.
They let me book this hotel. I arrived only to find that the Kayak system had listed it as available and accepted my money but not secured me a room. The hotel had to turn me away and I had to go find another hotel. It sucked.
Decor Terrible unprofessional and incompetent front end manager. Would never go back here
We had a great experience. The costumer service and location were excellent.
Valet parking was ground-level and adjacent to the hotel, so the few times we needed to access the car to fetch or store things like umbrellas, it was convenient. Housekeeping did an excellent job of keeping the room tidy. Hotel location was not great; one block north near the garden is a little shady. This also means any time there is a Garden event, access to the hotel can be very difficult by car (other times are just fine). The floor often smelled like marijuana. I guess the hotel allows pets because whenever I got off the elevator the dogs in the neighboring rooms all started barking. Weird.
Everyone was extremely nice and helpful! I'm a NYer so that means a lot!
The room was fabulous; clean pretty and had amenities in case you forgot anything! Staff was friendly and helpful! 24/7 valet parking with come and go access As you please. Also cheapest pRking in the area.
Location The size of rooms bathroom layouts and more....
The ambience is cool--contemporary and funky with a sense of humor and fun thrown in. The staff at the front desk were wonderful--friendly, helpful, welcoming. Nice touches--daily complimentary wine bar in the lobby, fun animal print bathrobes in the room. The location is great, walked everywhere. Oh, and it's pet friendly! It would be nice to have a coffee maker in the room. When I asked at the desk, however, they brought one right up.
We really enjoyed our stay at Marriott Custom House during our recent family vacation to Boston. The location is ideal and the villas provided plenty of space for everyone. The observation deck was fun and we went up there several times during our stay. We would definitely return to the Custom House again.
The location cannot be beat if you want to be close to Quincy Market/North End/Downtown. Also, all the rooms are suites with a spacious living space. This is also a historic building so be sure to browse the museum quality displays throughout the lobby and hallways. Don't miss the observation deck!! Bathroom was tiny - I understand wanting to have access from bed and living rooms but that doesn't really work in a 'smaller than average' hotel bathroom. Take out the big dining table, change to a drop leaf and steal 6 feet to expand the bathroom. Btw, if you are a light sleeper, request a high floor.
