I've now stayed in both your new and old locations in Boston. The new one is far superior in too many ways to mention. Two highlights: 1) Top thing for me was the location - in the center of the city, close to everything, and 2) Liked how well-kept up the facility was. The only negatives I could find were: 1) that the wifi didn't always work in all locations. .
