Jury's Hotel Name Change

I've this morning received notification that Jury's will be changing it's name to The Back Bay Hotel from May 6th 2009. We've 3 nights booked in Aug. Virgin tell us it's merely a name change.

Interesting news. Another website says it will be called The Boston Hotel. Don't see a press release just yet from the Doyle Collection.

Does this mean it's dropping it's affiliation w/ Jury's?

I, too, am curiously awaiting more details regarding this change. So far, I'm not a fan of the new suggested names...

That seems like a really dumb move, unless the hotel is being sold.

Now that it's May, does anyone have an update on this?

I read in one review where it said that Doyle, the parent company, has decided to sell it's Jurys Inn brand, and these remaining "Jurys" named hotels would be in conflict with the sold hotels which are keeping their names...
