After an extensive remodel (and the chaos that went along with it) there is a noticeable change for the better here. Much more modern feel, updated menus, plus the second restaurant in the building has live music almost every week - very cool place to "hang the hat." The staff here is great - very attentive

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JRH123 Like sleeping under a bridge!
Great staff, beautiful room, comfortable bed, but oh so noisy! My room was on the fifth floor directly over Rt. 90 (Massachusetts Turnpike). I got a grand total of "zero hours" sleep as the noise from the vehicles passing under the hotel was like sleeping under a bridge. Also as a IHG Platinum Member I was not offered an upgraded room and by the looks of the parking garage (empty) I'm sure that there were rooms at a higher and quieter level available. I specifically asked if there were upgraded rooms available an told no.
Also want to comment on the Executive Coffee and breakfast area on the 11th floor. The woman that was running this operation was quite friendly, professional and accommodating. Again this area was empty with the exception of one other guest at 0630 in the morning so I seriously doubt that the hotels upper floors were sold out.
This was my first stay at this property and I was really hoping for a better experience as I have just started working on a project that is going to bring me to the area frequently.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sox Fan33 Old, dirty hotel with subpar employees
Contrary to my expectations, the hotel room I stayed in was very dated, had a musky smell and stained carpet. Between the hotel being right over the highway so I could hear every car that zoomed by, I could hear every person that was walking down the hallway. The bed was uncomfortable as well. I think the worst part about it was the room was so disgusting that I personally felt gross sleeping there. That doesn't help when you're on an important business trip.

This is a very nice hotel in the Newton Mass area. It's a bit noisy being located over a highway, but if you get a room in a higher floor, the view is great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Water of Life Great Experience - What you expect at a Crown Property
This is my first visit to this property and I was greeted by every staff member from valet, door man, front desk, and others as expected at a Crown property.
Yes you will hear noise from the Mass Turnpike but for the convenience of the location should over shadow that negative.
Found numerous locations for meals all within walking distance and had positive experiences at all (3 days)
Would recommend property but understand you will hear the traffic but use a little 'white noise' (music or television) to cover up and enjoy your stay.
