    We really enjoyed the overall modern design of both the overall hotel and our room. Staff was very friendly and the food was delicious in the restaurant. We also enjoyed the local beer on tap in the bar.

    The parking fee was outrageous.

    Fabulous

    The location, decor and friendly staff. The restaurant had a great patio and we enjoyed the food.

    The outdoor noise and the hotel doors banging. Although the food was very good the wait was long and every order there was a mix up or something missing.

    Fabulous

    The loaction, archetecture old and new were well combined. Only criticism it was rather dark inside and difficult to read door lettering etc. Staff were very helpful particualrly the gentleman ( Charles) who assited us with forward travel arrangements. Altogther a very good stay so much so my husband stayed there on his return visit to Boston.

    It has a very pleasant atmosphere - modern, yet warm and welcoming. I loved the location and the staff were fabulous (smiling people everywhere!)

    The Ames was centrally located and was all that I anticipated, in what I consider a "boutique" hotel. It was clean, comfortable, and luxurious. In addition to the expectations which were met by the Ames, I was delighted with what I considered a reasonable price. Also included within was every service needed, easily attained and simply available, such as the exercise room, valet parking, luggage storage, and simple directions to the sites and destinations. My daughter and I were able to make an overnight stay into a relaxed small vacation, enjoying a light evening meal in the bar on the first floor, and then a late morning and deliciously different breakfast at the restaurant on the property the next morning. We were able to enjoy a bit of Boston, but really never had to leave the hotel site. Only one thing took away from the whole positive experience. It was incredibly warm in the room(1006), during the night, and we were not able to adjust the room temperature. All in all, it was a perfect night away, with my daughter and an opportunity to get a feel for the city, as she hopes to move to Boston in the near future.

    As noted previously, my complaint was limited only the the room temperature. I would most definitely stay at the hotel, when visiting in Boston in the future. Now that I have discovered the location is where it is, I would not have any momentary problem finding the hotel itself either. I suppose that means that I am part of the Ames family and understand that finding the right place means knowing that you have to look for something special and you'll know it when you see it.

    Fabulous

    We had a very nice stay at Ames, a Morgans Original. Our holiday plans were interrupted by Hurricane Irene. The Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. They booked us in for another night at the same discounted price and assisted with our needs for transportation to New York. Thank god Breakfast was included as the City was closed the day of the Hurricane.

    Wi-fi was an added cost in the rooms and we didn't feel comfortable using the free Wi-fi in the Lobby or restaurant.

    Fabulous

    We liked our comfortable bed and excellent bathroom. It was nice to have 2 windows as the room was light and airy, this is important to us. The lifts were good and the doormen most polite and helpful.

    Staff at breakfast were not very friendly. Tables were not cleared as quickly as we would have liked. Breakfast could have been more interesting.

    Fabulous

    The staff were very helpful and courteous. The location could not be better for moving around Boston for Freedom Trail, shopping, market, restaurants etc.

    Unlike the staff the hotel environment was not very welcoming eg seating, internet room hidden away.
