They are truly the worst people to stay with. I was completely upset with my stay. The hotel over charged me, told me that I could not have another room, even though not all my guests could not stay in the room. The room only had a twin and full size bed, and I had four people with us. We called and they did nothing. They treated me horribly and did not even care. I just want to let everyone know that it is the worst that I have every been treated. They just want your money and dont care about you or your guest, Stay elsewhere and save yourself the pain and frustration.
I can't think of one bad thing. We stayed in a two bedrooom suite. The place was huge. The windows actually opened. We found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. Our experience was great. We would definately recommend this hotel to others and we look forward to coming back soon. The location is awesome.
I booked with this hotel because of the rate compared with other hotels in the area. The old adage "you get what you pay for" describes this hotel to a tee.
I am writing this review as I *don't* sleep at hotel 140. Why don't I sleep? Well, for one, about once an hour I get treated to some unexplainable noise, roughly akin to a sledgehammer hitting a shotgun shell. Then, with about the same amount of frequency, I'm treated to the groaning of pipes.
There are some other things about this hotel, in addition to unexplained and loud noises, that cause me to seriously warn folks about staying here:
First, there is no interior lock on my door. That's right, no way for me to lock my door from the inside. Anyone with a master key could walk right in. I could've sworn that was a legal requirement. Secondly, when I turned down my sheets, I found two neatly placed hairs...neither of which were my own. I honestly believe that these sheets were not changed. At the very least, those changing the sheets aren't being very sanitary.
Finally, the term "boutique" is really a deception. It's not trying to define the hotel as "quaint"...it's a warning term that these rooms are very, very small. You want a desk to work at? Forget about it. A closet for your clothes? Not at this hotel.
Ok. You've been warned. If you book inspite of all this, best of luck to you.
We had to stay in Boston for one night and didn't want to spend $300+ for one night. So we chose the Hotel 140 based on price and location and that it was newly renovated (I can't stand old hotels)
Clean, new, great location, friendly staff, great free coffee and cont. breakfast in the AM. Newly renovated and very good price.
Extremely small rooms-everything is very small: the bed, the bathroom, the shower, the ironing board, etc. So just be prepared for that.
All in all though a great value and very clean. If you are looking to hang out in Boston with no frills, this is a very nice hotel.
I really liked Hotel 140 b/c it was clean, the staff was friendly, it was a good value and in a prime location of Boston! The room was very basic - nothing fancy so if you are looking for something with pazazz this is not the place for you. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom - while small - was very clean. The towels were a little scratchy though but so are a lot of hotels I've been too. The only other "negative" was there was not a vending machine or a place to get ice so if you wanted something to drink you'd have to make sure you stopped at the CVS a block away. The location was great - right by the T and Copley Square - a nice place to sit outside and enjoy the weather/relax/people watch! I will definitely stay at Hotel 140 in the future and would recommend the hotel!!!
I thought the rates and customer service where outstanding and unmatched. The location is also a great feature Hotel 140 has to offer. Its right in the heart of Boston and offered multiple things to do such as shop and eat at different resturants.
The room was quite small, no closet, no tub, no coffemaker though that was listed as one of the amenities. After a long day of sightseeing and visiting family, it was not condusive to relaxing.
On the plus side, the location was great, close to the Back Bay T station, Copley Place, Trinity Church, restaurants- we did nicely walking or taking public transport to our destinations though we did have trouble getting a cab until we started walking around the corner to Stuart St.
The room was very clean and attractive as was the rest of the hotel, and the bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in. The staff was friendly but could use some additional training, we learned more about where to go and how to get there from other guests. All in all, a pleasant but cramped stay at a reasonable price. I think it would be a great place for a business traveler or young single that just needs a place to sleep and shower.
