    Great loacation


    My fiance and I were very satisfied with our stay. Although we had doubts about this place when we arrived, we quickly realized you don't judge a book by its cover. The exterior of the building looked very old, but when we got to our room, it was very nice. We had a king size bed, and a kitchenette. Modern and clean except for the bath tub that had rust stains. The service was satisfactory and the amenities were few. However, we didn't go to the hotel to use thier gym :p Other than that, the morning breakfast buffet was good. Not a lot of variety. Just your basics: eggs, bacon, saussage, pancakes, toast, cereal and yogurt. And Yes, I will recommend this hotel to others because it's very near everything, very walkable. We walked all the way to Fenway in no time. However, be aware that this hotel is across from the TD Gardens. So if there's a game going on, it may be loud and rowdy. So check their game schedule. Also, another negative is that there's no parking lot except for valet service. So if you do drive, take that into consideration. I think we paid $39 per night just for parking.

    Unique Quality: Nothing very unique about this place.

    Directions: Near Quincy Market

    Weird but convenient


    The Shawmut Inn is a small hotel tucked in the north end near the TD Banknorth Garden where the Celtics and Bruins play as well as where they have concerts and other events. The red line for the T (Boston's subway) is a block away and there are tons of bars, stores and restaurants in the immediate area. That makes it very convenient for practically anything you want to do in Boston. The price is relatively low too $100 - $150 per night, most hotels in Boston being $200 - $300 per night. When we arrived it was too early for check-in and they advised that we needed to come back. They took our bags, but put them in a dark hotel room off the lobby, which is kind of in a hallway on the second floor. When we did come back we were given a room off the same hallway as the reception desk and right across from the room where breakfast was going to be. The room was oddly shaped - a kitchen and bathroom in a narrow hall opening up to a small room with a bed and TV and windows open to the busy street. It felt like an office building or something where they had thrown in a few beds. The bedding was not top quality and the TV and furniture had seen better days. I don't know what the other floors were like, but this was one of the weirder hotels I've been in. It worked great for what we needed - just a place to stay between Red Sox games, but if you wants luxury and pampering - this is definitely not the place for you.

    Unique Quality: Free breakfast, close to public transportation. No parking at the hotel. You may find something on the street, but there is a parking garage down the block.

    Directions: On Friend Street - right off Cambridge Street accross from the TD Banknorth Garden.
