We stayed here before leaving for a flight out of Boston Logan Airport. It was about a 20 minute ride so the $99 we paid was a lot less expensive than staying inside the city.
Hotel room needs updating. We discovered at 9 PM that our toilet didn't flush and with a 10 month old baby sleeping in our room the last thing we wanted was maintenance coming in to fix it so late at night.
The man we dealt with at check in and check out was very friendly and courteous. There was a woman working behind the front desk who really rubbed us the wrong way. I was checking in with my 10 month old son sitting on my hip. She told me that I was going to make my son bowlegged by holding him this way and he would not be able to walk (note -- I called my doctor, this is a myth) and that whenever she sees her friends hold their kids like that, she grabs them and holds them "the correct way". I think she expected me to change the way I was holding my son because she awkwardly laughed after and made hand gestures to turn him around which i didn't do.
I'm sure she was trying to be friendly and helpful, but I really wasn't looking for parenting advise at check in and it really rubbed my husband and I the wrong way.
