The Sanctuary room has one double bed in a sort of alcove, slightly apart, and one single bed. So if two people can sleep in the double together, yes!

Hi, I'm sorry if you didn't receive a response right away. We are located less than two blocks from the Green line of the Boston subway, known as the T, at the Kenmore stop. A car is totally unnecessary!
