Some Notes, Cons, and Prosfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel entrance being located in an unusal basement level-- it was a bit inconvenient having to walk/escalate down to the basement level entrance to take yet another elevator up to the ground lobby floor. The lobby is without windows and somewhat reminicent of 'English Lodge' type lighting. But it's just a lobby and we didn't mind so much.
The first room we were assigned smelled a bit mildewy/old, and we request another, which was better, on the 18th floor.
The bathroom needs some attention--it showed wear, some darkening of caulk around the tub, tiles, etc.
Our biggest complaint-- lack of high speed internet(HSI) access. There is internet access via TV and a keyboard provided for some $10 until next day at noon, but it is merely a dialup modem access and painstakingly slow. We requested to cancel within minutes of signing up, and was not charged. We were told that HSI access is available at the bussiness center(don't quite recall, but we paid $35 or so for an hour acess there). HSI access is available via ethernet cable on suites, located on the top levels(19-22?), for $35/day.
TV screen was surprisingly small--19inch?
Location: we felt safe around the block, and Boston Commons has the best access to the T(subway). Red and Green (possibly other lines too) intersect here, so we were able to just walk over to the approporiate station, instead of riding a line to a transfer station and transferring to different lines.
Access to Boston Commons shopping area in the next block was convenient, (Filene's was a block away), and Chinatown is a few blocks away with many restaurants.
We enjoyed the room--it was one of the most spacious standard hotel room (250-300sf?), at least 50% bigger than what I'm used to from other Hyatts(scottsdale, La Jolla, Lake Las Vegas, etc)
Our particular room was very pleasantly color coordinated. The best part was the classic beige/tan carpet that made the room that much brighter and cozy. It is a small detail, but it is rare phenomenon as hotels probably find darker shades more economical to maintenance. (This probably will change when they undergo renovations in Nov.04)
Great view through large wall sized windows overlooking the Boston skyline.
It probably deserves about 3 1/2 star rating. It's a little lacking for a four star Hyatt, but not quite a 3 star level of holiday Inns.
Perfectly Fine Hotelfrom Gemini4
It's located about 1 block away from the Downtown Crossing T stop; centrally located - near great bars/restaurants such as Mantra, News and Silvertone.
Stay here only with a priceline ratefrom JoePizza
I had heard that the hotel was in a bad area, but it really isn't terrible. I walked around at 11, 11:30 at night and felt fine. A few vagrants here and there, but being from NYC, this did not bother me too much. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from Boston Common and maybe another 10 minutes to Beacon Hill, which was lots of independent shopping and cute bistros. The down overlay on the beds is a nice touch. The Boston Globe (including Sundays) arrives daily. Service was fine, but it is VERY, and I mean very annoying to have to enter through the parking garage and then take the elevator up to the lobby, then walk to another set of elevators to get to your room. Hyatt needs to address this. The shower has a seating area which is a nice touch. Also, given the area, I was not happy to see no security at late hours, anyone could have walked in. The rooms are showing a bit of wear and tear (noticed a leaky ceiling) but if you book through Priceline grab it. The rooms are pretty spacious but the TV was small. I didn't try the restaurant as it looked to expensive and the dining options in Boston are superb. I'd like to stay in central Boston next time, but again, for $40, you can't beat this.

Depressingfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Overall Boston is a great, fun little getaway, but the hotel was ugly, dull and boring and cost way more than was it had to offer.
Very good.from GummyTraveler
Get real people, if you want to shop and go to the theatre this is it.from A TripAdvisor Member
The room was better than average with a good sized bathroom.(Important for 4 women) The Hotel staff was very proffessional and helpful. A side not I was told by other hotel guest's that the restaurant in the hotel was very good, but as this was the first trip to boston for 2 of my partners we decided to do the Harbor. Bottom line nice place with a great location for downtown.

Top Local Tips for Boston
MBTA The "T" The "T" is one of the best ways to get around Boston. I use it frequently and find it easy to use.
Don't Miss Don't miss Shear Madness, Boston's longest continual running theatrical performance! Prices are reasonable and it's very funny for the whole family. Also check out Ye Olde Union Oyster House. It's pricey -- but it is the oldest restaurant in America and quite charming.
Harrvard Museum of Natural History This is an intersting collection; where else can you an auk, a dodo, 5000 minerals, and glass flowers of every kind!
