I travel a lot for work and seldom do I write a review. This team is exceptional and this deserves a minute to recognize their professionalism, above and beyond service and willingness to accommodate no matter what! I’ve been there during sold out weeks, conferences, playoffs and no matter what they don’t miss a step. Going to the bar is a must to meet Elias. Make him famous by saying “Hi Elias” he will take care of you and your guests always! Special shout out to Rachel, the manager (Leader) that makes all of this happen through her team!

Hotel's Favourite
So the main reason we decided on this hotel was because of the location. It's so incredibly convenient to be right off the highway and within walking distance to many great restaurants. We were given a front corner suite and we couldn't have been happier with the room. I personally enjoy hearing traffic at night (I'm a city person) so the noise level didn't give me any trouble sleeping whatsoever and I still thought it was very quiet levels of traffic comparatively to other places I've stayed. The staff were all so friendly and helpful and it really made our stay pleasant. The hotel itself has many highlights besides just the location. The valet parking is a huge plus so we were able to drive into the city and then mostly use Ubers for the local travel (unless you want to find parking/parking garage fees). It ended up saving us a big chunk of change. The room was beautiful and comfortable and we utilized the mini fridge and microwave a few times for dinners we just couldn't finish at the restaurants. The breakfast was great, filled with many different options for whatever you're feeling that day. It was an $18 add on but I felt the price was worth it, compared to the options and what I would spend elsewhere for breakfast but the convenience of not having to leave the hotel. The gym was small but had the essentials and I appreciated it was clean and well maintained. The same day laundry service was very inexpensive and convenient, especially when I forgot to have my dress dry cleaned before coming into the city. The next time we come back to Boston we will definitely be choosing this hotel. The experience was a great one and that makes all the difference in a vacation.

This hotel is across the street from an elevated freeway and just blocks from a hospital, so you get vehicle noise all night. Each room was equipped with a white noise machine which helps a bit- why didn't they just build that side with more insulation? If you book a room here make sure to be on the non freeway side. The breakfast buffet ($18) was quite good, with excellent service and choices including egg dishes made to order. The rooms were a bit small, but comfortable. Easy walking distance to several restaurants. Whole Foods market next door.

Every employee that I came in contact with, gave amazing customer service. The Valet associates were helpful with directions and parking, The desk clerks were always courteous and accommodating. We did stay on the Street side of the building, but the "white noise" machines in the room helped cancel out any disturbances. There were several places to walk to for food and drinks but they close fairly early like 10 or 11pm. The Hotel is in fairly good neighborhood, so if you don't mind the walk JJ Foleys (Irish Pub) was open late and had great food. The only down side was no free breakfast and Valet was $55 a night. For a place this pricey, both should be cheaper.

I've been staying at this hotel for the last three years. We have three daughters who live/go to college in Boston and this hotel has been our go-to. On our most recent trip we had a pickup truck full of furniture to move my daughter in to school with the following day. Rachel was extremely responsive and accommodating to ensure that our vehicle was valet parked as close to the main entrance as possible to mitigate the risk of theft. Rachel always remembers us when we come and is nothing but professional, courteous and responsive.

The hotel was fine, clean, and modern, but you need to request a room not facing the highway. The price was too high for this location. Whole Foods is around the corner as are a few other shops/cafes, but not an ideal location if you want to really see Boston.

We were given this hotel as part of a cruise and stay package with Iglu Cruises. It was a nice hotel but in a terrible location. Supposed to be downtown but it was at least a 20 minute walk to the edge of downtown or 30 minutes walk to the waterfront. Only 2 restaurants nearby and the area around the hotel was not very nice, lots of homeless people hanging about and had to walk through the back of Chinatown, which felt unsafe or down the side of a motorway. Our room was on the side which had 6 main roads/ motorways going by, so the traffic noise was non-stop.

Dear Gail, Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. We are glad you enjoyed the hotel but not our location. We are very sorry for falling short on your expectations. The South End district is a vibrant and dynamic neighborhood, our hotel stand on the ground of the former building of Boston Herald newspapers. We are extremely sorry that you did not enjoy the location. There are several restaurants in a walk-in distance of the hotel, 2 metro line and Boston Common is 15 minutes walk away from the hotel. We hope you will give us another opportunity to welcome you at the hotel. Best regards, Damien DELAUNAY General Manager AC HOTEL BOSTON DOWNTOWN

If you’re interested in highways and wonder what it might be like to sleep next to one, this is the ideal destination for you! On the lower levels you have cars outside your window as well as slightly above you, and, despite this being a recent construction, the windows are not soundproof so you can enjoy the sound of automotive traffic all night long. In addition to sound, you can enjoy the bright lights of the Interstate since the curtains do not fully close. In room 240 the toilet is installed at an angle rather than perpendicular to the wall, which could be charming if there were not the major noise and light design flaws. On a positive note the hotel is (1) clean, and (2) located next doors to a Whole Food so you can pick up a meal (no room service or on-site dining).

This was superb. From the artistic style of the room, to the fantastic gym facilities, this hotel is incredible. The rooms were very nicely decorated and the staff were very understanding of our early leave today. As well as this, the hotel was placed with a nice placement near some good restaurants. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would happily return for a longer visit. *****

There are a lot of positives about this hotel, where we stayed for five nights while visiting with family. Those at the front desk were very friendly and efficient, although we were disappointed we did not receive a south face room when we checked in to our suite, as after reading the reviews before travelling we had specifically asked for one upon booking. The white noise machine did help, but it didn't cancel the trucks, motorcycles, and horns on the very noisy highway. We were offered a different space a few days into our stay but by then we had settled in and decided to remain (but appreciated the offer). The hotel is close to several excellent restaurants, coffee shops, and a Whole Foods is minutes away. The bed is comfortable, and extra towels easily available by asking. We had a good sized fridge and microwave in the room, which allowed us to have lunches in the room, although there were no dishes (including glassware) or cutlery for use. It was also an interesting design that there was no sink near the fridge and microwave, and the one in the bathroom was not deep enough for washing any dishes (we ended up buying some ).There is limited space for clothes, so we kept much in our suitcase. Although the spacing in the suite was very good, the lighting in the entry way needs improvement, and there is not enough room in the living area for reading (we brought the stand light into that area to be able to read/write which solved the problem). All the staff were very helpful, and responded to requests quickly and with a smile. we'd stay again, but not without a south face room.
