«+» Good and central location, there are a lot of different businesses and places nearby. Nice looking and perfectly clean lobby. Helpful and friendly hotel workers. Before my arrival I made a few requests and I got the room I wanted and also got a free upgrade to a better type of room. Availability of early check-in and later check out. Big and fast elevators. My room (#909) was big, nicely designed and perfectly clean. I enjoyed the big windows, which allowed for a lot of day light into the room. Free snacks and water in the room. Nice bathroom with a large shower stall. Good quality bathroom amenities. The hotel is pet friendly, and there is no fee for pets. «-» Super slow Wi-Fi. Bad lamps’ lighting. Water temperature of the shower was not very hot. Uncomfortable mattress which was super soft. According to management they were updating all mattresses soon.

The Godfrey is in a wonderful location for walking around the city of Boston! Since we were traveling during COVID, there was no real agenda as most things (other than shops and restaurants) were closed, so our whole agenda was to walk around the city in the snow. This was an incredibly central location, only one block from the Boston Common and so close to both the North and South ends. The accommodations were wonderful and we had a lovely stay. The only complaint I have is that the snacks that were complimentary in the room were very expired and stale. I'm assuming they have just been left in there through various cleans if people don't consume them, so they were about 6-8 months expired which was not great. Since we didn't pay for them, it's not a huge deal, but you may want to check the date before having them.

I really enjoyed my stay. The hotel is very clean and the location is great! I have to mention that Lily and Jordan went out of their way to make my stay comfortable. They are very friendly and very helpful! I would highly recommend this hotel and I hope to be able to come back!

My fiance flew into town and surprised me for my birthday. She made reservations at the Godfrey Hotel. Location is perfect as its in the Theater district and close to China town, Boston Common. Our experience was fantastic, everything from the bellman when we first walked in, to the hotel manager (Jordan) were attentive to our every need. Anything we needed or any question/request we had, Jordan either knew the answer or found the answer for us- Jordan made our stay truly amazing. Room was decent size but again, location was fantastic. We will definitely be staying here again...thank you Jordan! J&M
