Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Sound and Staff
Thanks for the great experience!
The only problem with the stay was the sound and light level at night. I could hear people walking and talking as they walked past my room, and the light from the hallway shining under the door disturbed my sleep. I put a towel at the base of the door to block the light.
However, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tiredmommy AWSOME stay
I picked this hotel to stay park and fly before our vaction. I drove 12 hours to get to Boston arriving at 630am. I knew that check in was only at 3pm but having three small children with me we needed a place to get some sleep. I asked the gentleman if there were any rooms available for right now I assure him I did not mind paying extra but just needed some sleep for me and the kids. He said you bring those kids in and get them something to eat from the continental breakfast and we will work something out for you. Within 30 minutes he had upgraded me to a king suite with early check in free of charge. Great service and staff.

Spent one night before our travel. Everything was just fine - parking was a little "iffy" - very crowded, don't know if they have enough parking for all the rooms. We got the last space the two times we went out and felt lucky. Other than that, it was a very clean and friendly place to stay for a night before travel and I would recommend it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HankM comfort and convenience
I am a creature of habit. Every November I attend a conference at the Boston seaport. HIE is an easy location to get to and the rooms are very comfortable. Even though my company will pay more for my housing, I like coming here. Service is great, and the proof is, the staff are the same every year, even the breakfast preparer. Boston is a great city for public transportation and the HIE is very convenient to the T and bus hub. It's easy to leave the HIE and be downtown in 15 minutes, and not worry about your car or parking. I really shouldn't be writing this review because as far as I'm concerned, this is my secret.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cha2rles Good Brand, bad experience
Had some loud people beating on doors at 2:30AM.
The staff does not seem to care about noise at night. This stay will cause me to no longer stay at this particular location. I will happily drive a half hour south for a better stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ED18 Doesn't fit the model
This hotel does not fit what I would expect from a Holiday Inn Express... it is an older building that is not as well designed to accommodate the business traveler. While a good price for the Boston area, I found that the rooms and halls are not designed to block sound well from hallway into rooms, so opening and closing doors, and people having conversations in the hallway are very audible when you are in your room. This detracts from the environment as either product space or restful space. Would be fine for tourists and vacationers... but isn't that more for the traditional Holiday Inn brand?
