Newly built, clean lines, no carpeting in the rooms, large rooms with high ceilings, large windows, and all the other basic amenities in the room, and in the lobby. Great breakfast menu for reasonable price. Short distance self parking garage as well as valet parking for tour choice. The prices are competitive for Boston area. I have to say this is now the 3rd or 4th AC Marriott hotel I have stayed in different countries or cities within US, and I have become a Big fan. Really, it’s hard to come up with improvement areas.
The staff were all also pleasant and customer oriented.
Whenever I can't get into the city of Boston due to availability or pricing, the AC Boston North is my go to spot. The hotel is clean, the bed is comfortable, there is minimal noise in the room, and it is very convenient to the Orange line. Check in was super easy, I think I was in my room in less than 5 minutes from walking in the door. There are plenty of power outlets in the room for all of your electronics. Big TV with plenty of channels or access to streaming services. Fast internet. The lobby gets crowded at night, pretty active after work scene. The gym is nice, although they may want to service some of the machines as the elliptical was acting weird. I never saw anyone in the pool, but it looked nice. Another great stay and I am sure I will be back!
