Great location, tired room.

I guess I was a bit annoyed with the attitude of the check-in clerk and that started things off badly. I said "can I confirm the room is appropriate for the number of people as I booked it through expedia". We had 3 kids and us two adults. His answer "you booked a room, we provided that room, I can't do any more than that". He didn't tell us about the free reception and he didn't talk us through the facilities or how, for example, to get to the centre of Boston. So that is a 1 star effort right there. The other bad part of the stay was the 'premium floor' room decor. Ours was tired, very tired. The wallpaper was ripped and the pull down bed cushion covers (removable) were dirty and worn.
The quality of the beds varied. The two queen beds were great, no issues there. But the 'roll-out' bed (the Settee Bed) was just not well enough equipped to sleep on. Our 15 year old didn't get a wink of sleep as it was so uncomfortable. You could feel every spring through it.
The free breakfast is usually really poor in these places, but this was much better than expected. Wait in line for the freshly made omelette is my advice. It is excellent and really the best thing on offer. The sausage and bacon was either Turkey based or the worst pork sausage/bacon I have ever seen. There was a load of cereal and yoghurt on offer and free drinks. Apart from the bacon and sausage, this was excellent.
By far the best thing was the complimentary water and snacks in the room on arrival. Wonderful!
