I hate to post such a negative review but this is probably the loudest hotel I have ever stayed at. The fact that they provide ear plugs and a white noise machine in the room should be an indication of the noise level in this...More
We loved the historical (but updated) feel of this property. The rooms are cool and eclectic with high ceilings and history. Each room is a little different. Rooms on the corner have windows on two sides. The staff were very nice, helpful and efficient. The...More

Response from Stephen C, General Manager at Ames Boston Hotel, Curio Collection by HiltonResponded 3 weeks ago
What a fantastic review! Thank you for such positive feedback regarding your stay. It's great to hear how much you enjoyed the hotel aesthetic, from the historical feel to the details of the room. We're pleased the staff added such warmth to your...More
Laundry was not done correctly. When I complained there was no apology and no enthusiasm to fix the error. Laundry forms in room not replaced. Staff on front desk on Sunday morning miserable. Overall disappointing - I wouldn’t return.
I agree with everyone else's comments about the location... but that's about it. I would recommend avoiding this hotel for 3 reasons:
1. Lack of attention to detail in rooms -- not nearly enough lighting to see yourself in the mirror.
2. Unacceptable wait times...More
Located on the Freedom Trail and just a block from Quincy Market (food & action) makes the Ames a convenient stay. As with any downtown hotel in a good size city, however, it was noisy at night. Bring your earplugs. Sirens, traffic, trash pickup at...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
