What travellers think
My first visit was smooth and pleasant, this time not so much. The WiFi signal in room 507 was extremely weak, almost nonfunctional. Also I left my laptop power cord in the room before checking out. I came back a few hours later the same day, and a very unsympathetic employee (who claimed to be a manager) refused to be of any help beyond briefly checking lost and found. This might be standard procedure, but it felt very dismissive and unhelpful.

Budget meal tip
anywhere in Chinatown for cheap eats, Back Bay Social Club for somewhere fancier - get the lobster rol
