DO NOT BOOK! My flight was cancelled during a NorEaster. There was no possible way to arrive in Boston. They refused to cancel, and charged me for both nights. TOTAL RIPOFF!

Wonderful Stay
A charming place. Clean with polite staff and had a wonderful Quiche full breakfast(free). There was also free internet and underground parking. Let's not forget about the three o'clock free coffee, tea and cookies. 10 minute walk to the subway (Porter Square). Great stay!
