Great place to stay in. Strongly suggested that cabs be used after dark for travel. Hotel is converted school on the edge of what was known as "the combat zone." Area has seen great turnaround , however not a place to get lost in. In the Day its 5 minute walk to downtown and major stores. Book a Duck tour if you have a chance. Your are also on the edge of Boston's China Town. Great food and lots of funky stores. Just dont get lost after 11pm. The hotel is a wonderfull place. with great rooms and ez internet hook up.
