Property is nice. Most amenities are not offered. For the price, they need to offer a continental breakfast at least. No room service offered. Great locstion if you're headed to Fenway.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
It seems this hotel has passed it best days, rooms are old and furniture is banged up. It has been used and abused with no real update to the quality of the building and stay. This hotel should renovate with the times or shut down
