I got this hotel on hotwire, so I did not actively choose it, I just ended up with it based on the great price/star rating ratio.
I don't know what list price is on the rooms, but I got in for about 180 and it was totally worth it. Great room. Super bathtub! The healthclub was completely empty when I went, but we swam in the pool anyways. I don't know what "list" price is on the rooms, but it really is a great place to be.
Location wise: it's on the water, near the financial zone. Not in a particularly cute part of boston, but certainly efficient enough and easy to get everywhere you want to go.
I stayed on a saturday and there were at least 3 different wedding "cliques" operating in the busy bar in the lobby. If you don't like that kind of noise or crowd in the lobby, avoid this place in spring/summer on a weekend!
The restaurant in the lobby seemed to be open all night and provided us with some of the best late night munchies I've ever had: A big basket of truffle-oil french fries! I've since tried to get them other places and even make them myself but they come up short to that memory. Order them! You won't be sorry!
All in all, this hotel seems like a cross between a boutique hotel crossed with a hilton. If you get a good rate, you definitely won't be sorry!
And even if you don't stay there, but you find yourself nearby in the middle of the night... try those truffle friels!
