The rooms were not in the greatest shape. The bathroom was way out of date. The hotel service was not good at all
Two elevators, one, only goes up to the third-floor and the other goes to the sixth and they were very very slow
If you’re looking for any kind of modern or upscale hotel this is not it
We recently stayed here on a Groupon. Upon arrival the front desk clerk was unable to find our reservation in their system. I spent a half hour trying to get help from Groupon, and while finally found a way to chat with Groupon, the clerk announced that he found our reservation. We then were required to purchase a welcome bag with 2 waters, crackers and a granola bar. Not disclosed in Groupon....the entire process seemed suspicious.
The room was basic. It was clean and comfortable however. Next time in Boston we are back to the Omni Parker House... our usual choice. Never dissatisfied there. You get what you pay for!
The location, while a mile walk to the Market or North Station, is quiet and safe. The walk to Boston takes you by the docked US Constitution.
We won’t be returning to the Constitution anytime soon.
