          The elevator is problematic and seems to be broken one time or another. The manager was very available and helpful. The free umbrellas for the rain was a nice perk. The coffee in the morning was also a nice perk.

          I have stayed here before but I looked it up before hand Did you? For the location and the price it is a good hotel. IF you wanted those amenities you should have researched and found them but you would be paying $500 +++ per night in the Boston / Cambridge. It is a pricey city to visit. I know as I travel here frequently .

          Depends on the period. The last week of May is extremely expensive due to Harvard graduation commencements ceremonies.
