This hotel has a great location, one block from Copley Place and the beautiful Boston
Public Library as well as the being in the shadow of the John Hancock tower. You can walk to Newberry
Street, the Prudencial Center (grab a duck tour), Fenway Park get the T from Coply station to
anywhere. There are lots of restaurants and bars around the corner.
If you are driving, it's right off the Mass Pike with a parking garage accross
the street for $27 per day for hotel guests. Make sure you get your ticket validated on check in.
On the down side...there is no sign on the outside of the building indicating it's a
hotel. It's just the address (40 Trinity Place) and the convention center signs to follow, so look closely.
Rooms are definitely two star rooms. You get a bedspread (not a comforter or duvet) two flat pillows
(no extras) and normal sheets. We got a double bed, not a queen. There is a tube TV. Our room
needed some paint and a new carpet. The coffee maker in ours didn't work and neither did the sconce
lights above the bed. It wasn't the bulbs, I tried changing them...they really didn't work. The bath enamel
was chipped and a towel rack was broken. One weird thing..the shower curtain rings were a bit too small
for the rod, making it hard to close. As far as clean...it was pretty clean in the room -- but definitely run
down in spots.
If you expect luxury for this price you will be disappointed. If you want convenient and cheap - this is a
great place to stay. It wasn't scary at all in terms of the people in or around the building - it's a very nice,
upscale neighborhood. However...don't expect immaculately clean or updated facilities and you will be happy
here. I was.
Unique Quality: The price is low for this location, there is a business center, a beautiful lobby, and a
very friendly staff. For amenities you get Bath and Body Works soaps (two kinds...bath soap
is large size) and shampoo (+ conditioner and lotion), hair dryer, iron, and coffee maker.
Directions: Copley Place next to John Hancock Tower. Off Stuart Street.

Looking for recommendations on hotels/b&b's in the North End or close to North End. I am visiting my brother (in a week) who lives in the area and I would like to stay either in a reasonably priced hotel that is close to his place so I can walk down to his apt. or near enough to where I can easily take the T or a bus. Hotels close to restaurants/nightlife would be a plus.
Any help would be much appreciated.
I'd reccomend to you:
John Hancock Hotel & Conference Center - superb location close to restaurants, parks, shopping and other Boston attractions
Doubletree Guest Suites Boston - located along the Charles River, minutes from Boston's most popular sites. Spectacular views)))
Unfortunately, neither one of those "recommendations" is anywhere near the North End, nor would I necessarily recommend them under most other circumstances. Closest to the North End are Millenium Bostonian, The Mariot Custom House, Hilton Financial District, Harborside Inn and those along the Waterfront (Battery Wharf, Marriott Long Wharf and Boston Harbor Hotel)/
