    Great place to stay if you're not driving because parking is atrocious nearby. The location is subterranean and if arriving at night it's kind of difficult to find. The entrance light was broken so you'll need your phone's flashlight to enter the code. When I arrived the stairs leading down was iced over and very slippery, so be cautious when walking down in the winter, not an issue when warm. The unit's door dosen't stay shut by itself, so you'll have to use the Schlage deadbolt to keep it shut. When leaving close the door and press the Schlage logo to lock the door. The bathroom door also dosen't really lock, not a big issue. The room was very nice, though part of the floor near the closet was obviously rotted and sank down as you stepped on it. Noise level is OK as you can hear people walking above you, and people talking in the hallway. Parking is a nightmare, and don't park at the goverment center garage per property's recommendation because they gauge the **** out of you. I parked my car at 11pm and took the car out by noon the next day, $60. If you must drive, find street parking by a meter after 8pm - I was able to find it by the 7/11, download the parking app and set an alarm at 7:58am to wake up and pay $4 for 2 hours to 10am. Overall a great alternative to hotels, except parking sucks but that's big city for you.

    Great location. Walking distance to many shopping and historical areas. Easy access to public transportation. Perfect for a long weekend visit.

    Boston stay

    I was in Boston because my husband was having surgery at Mass. General. The close proximity, cleanliness and comfort were all greatly appreciated. I did find the check-in process unnecessarily involved and annoying. Also, I think there needs to be better information right from the get go that one is NOT booking a hotel room and that there is NO parking.

    PERFECT location to enjoy all Boston has to offer. We were walking distance to almost everything and Hancock St was AMAZING! We felt like true Bostonians. The only bad thing I can say about our whole experience was the noise of the construction EVERY morning starting at 7am. PS: hope you like an extra firm mattress

    The heaters weren’t working so I called the property manager. Within 30 minutes they dropped off two portable heaters. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!

    Just get a hotel

    Complicated check-in which made me decide to never use Sounders again. Of I had known, I would have paid $10 extra for a hotel. No TV and no coat rack in rainy/cold Oct. Place was nice, clean, and big but we were only sleeping there...
