Montreal and Bawston

... as though we had walked onto a gangster movie set, with the Bawston drool emitted everywhere from a number of wiseguys called Paulie,Al and Tony. From here we took the half hour journey out of the city to our Hostel, where we were sure we had walked into 'the hood'. This misplaced fear quickly dispersed as we were placed into a room with a German couple who we promptly woke and infuriated by our unpacking, making of the beds and eventual nap. A few hours later, we ...

... and bush'! There is constant movement in the stadium, people up and down from their seats, vendors coming up and down the aisles selling overpriced coke, water, peanuts, lemonade and candy floss!

unfortunately, the Red Sox were rubbish and were thrashed by the Yankees but we still had a great time. We were very glad of being able to just walk 200 metres and were in our hotel. Within minutes our two tired little Red Sox fans were sound asleep.

Th huge, 400-passenger British Airways 747 left right on time. I only wish we hadn't eaten a rather large dinner at the airport before. About two hours into the flight, drinks and dinner were served. I saw someone order a white wine and that sounded good, so I got one myself and Dave and I drank a toast to jolly old England.

Our meal was very good, I opted for pasta which included a fresh salad, ...

neighbourhood. Following it proved challenging as we were unsure what district we were in. Just then it began to rain and conditions rapidly deteriorated to a pull-over-to-the-side-I-can't-see-where -I'm-going thunderstorm. Soon it was difficult to recognise street names. It seemed to take an age before the rain relented sufficiently to identify the street and work out which page we were on. ...

... couldn’t resist explaining that HBS is incredibly cheesy and awkward and this is just one of their rituals. (We had to give our professor a standing ovation the other day because his dad was in the audience. So awkward for an Englishman that Adam nearly died).

On that theme, we have to write a 300 word essay this week imagining we are about to attend a 10 year reunion in 2023, and have to give a description of our lives. I think the idea is to make us all realise ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Boston-South Boston

    Bumpy start, but they accommodated me well

    from

    Our check-in experience was less than desirable at the Courtyard South Boston. We reached our room and found that the roll away bed we requested with our reservation was not there. I went to the desk to request one, but was informed that they could not put a roll away bed in my room as it was a fire hazard. They claimed roll away beds were only available in suites, but it did not say this anywhere on their website. After a bit of arguing and showing them my reservation confirmation, they offered me a second room at no charge. I also requested that our room be moved from the first floor and this request was honored quickly and without a problem.

    Great Value for the money

    from

    We spent 2 nights in Boston at the Courtyard and found that the hotel was well above average especially given the room rate. The room was fantastic, very well appointed, large and clean. The beds were very comfortable too! The staff made our stay enjoyable and were well acquainted with places to see, restaurants, shopping etc. The hotel is out of the CBD but is an easy taxi ride into downtown on the I93 (expect a $10 - $15 fare). Also close to the subway if you want to catch a train but not sure how safe that would be at night.

    Great Value, Very Comfortable

    from

    I've stayed at this Courtyard by Marriot South Boston a couple times now, and I really like it. The hotel is actually easy to get to, once you know the tricks of the one-way streets, and free parking & internet will save you a bunch too. It's a couple blocks' walk from the Andrews Square T subway station, so while it's not walking distance to downtown Boston, it is only a few minutes' ride on the T. The hotel isn't more than a year or two old.

    This hotel is certainly above expectation

    from

    This Courtyard is not in downtown Boston nor by the airport, but is not far from either.

    For a nightly stay of $169 plus taxes the hotel offered a very clean and cmfortable stay. There is no gym or restaurant, but the hotel does provide free Internet access and parking.

    As well, the rooms are either new or recently renovated and are quite clean. Additionally, the staff is friendly and accomodating.

    Reccommended

    from

    stayed 3 nights end of August 2006, hotel out of town but no great inconvenence only short taxi ride away or use nearby T. rooms large enough for two adults and 2 children, well equiped and spotless, pool wonderful for children. Breakfast pricey but diner only short walk. Large shopping mall almost completed next door. Staff very friendly and helpful, had a really relaxing and enjoyable stay can truly reccommend this place.

    Nice hotel, not the most convenient location

    from

    Stayed at Courtyard South Boston for 3 nights in July. We had two rooms which were connecting. The rooms were nice and good size, I assume recently remodeled, with very comfortable beds. The staff was friendly and helpful.

    The shuttle bus picked us up from the airport and also took us back there. Otherwise we used the subway to get to downtown which is only few stops away. The subway station is a little walk away thru not so nice neighborhood. I would not like to walk thru the area by myself at night.

    We used Marriott Point Saver points for our stay so the price was right for us. I would stay there again even though the location was not the most convenient.

    Great hotel but you may leave hungry.

    from

    The hotel is very nice and the staff is excellent. Shuttle from the airport was great.

    There is a shopping center next door with a Target, a grocery store, and a Home Depot, but there are very few options for food. I walked about 1/2 mile in several directions and only found one small local restaurant and two fast food chains. There is a Denny's style restaurant in the Holiday Inn next door but it looked pretty run down.

    The subway station is not too far from the hotel physically but it is a difficult walk with traffic and no direct path. I believe that the hotel shuttle will take you to it if it is available.

    For Boston, the rates at this hotel are pretty good. Just hard to get around to anywhere.

    Long weekend to Fenway

    from

    I am so glad the room at this courtyard was nice because the weather certainly wasn't. Since it was rainy Fri thru Monday in Boston this weekend 6/23-6/26 we were stuck in our room a little more than planned. The standard king room that we stayed in was huge for the $189 per night we payed. We had a sitting room with couch, tv, desk and small kitchenette(microwave and frig!) plus a very big bedroom with another tv and a nice sized bathroom. The staff was extremely nice and the small bar in the lobby was a plus too. There is a breakfast every morning in the lobby that we never made it to as well as a snack stand with soda, icecream, cookies etc. that is open 24 hours. The rooms were cleaned daily and the hotel was very clean in general.

    Great hotel if on a budget

    from

    We spent Friday & Saturday nights here 03/31 - 04/01. The room we were in was great. It was very large with one King bed and a sofa. There was a desk an armoire and a refrigerator with a small bar above it. The bathroom was very large for a hotel room and had the curved shower curtain rod which was nice. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in. The only bad part of the room was that there was absolutely no water pressure in the shower. I was looking forward to using the nice looking massaging shower head but when The water came on I was very dissappointed, I could have dumped a cup of water over myself and got more pressure.

    Great room and brkfst but inconvenient to sites

    from

    My wife and I spent a Sat night here and enjoyed the new-looking room and bedding - one of the most luxurious and comfortable beds we've ever slept in. The indoor pool is small but no one else was swimming in the morning when I went in Sun morning. Breakfast buffet was great with eggs cooked to order and Belgian waffles, etc. Staff is friendly and helpful.
