    The Wyndham Hotel at Beacon Hill is a good option for out of towners who'd like to be able to get over to the tourist hotspots with ease, but without necessarily staying right in the thick of it all. The hotel’s location sort of straddles the border between the Mass General Hospital campus and the beautiful, quiet backstreets of historic Beacon Hill. While the actual neighborhood is nothing special, it’s certainly convenient, with easy access to places like CVS and Whole Foods. It’s also only a five minute walk to the blue line or the red line, so that Boston highlights like Harvard Square, the Freedom Trail and the Harbor Area are all within reach. And the hotel itself is solid on all accounts. Everything has been recently renovated and it shows. Rooms are neat, clean and tastefully decorated and the staff is very accommodating. I’m only giving three stars simply because the location and views are a little lackluster, and I wasn't able to pinpoint anything especially unique about this property.

    This hotel became the Wyndham in March 2013 (formerly the Holiday Inn). Since then, it has gotten a bit of a facelift on the inside, with a nice, inviting lobby area and a large bar and restaurant. Everything about this hotel is generally pretty standard and middle of the road (which is not a bad thing by any means). The only standout feature was the outdoor pool on the second floor. It's really spacious and has a lot of chaise lounge chairs for relaxing on a summer day. Other than that, it's in a pretty good location in Beacon Hill right near a Whole Foods and the Charles/MGH T stop on the Red Line. It's a solid, no-frills choice for families of tourists and business travelers alike.

    I visited this Holiday Inn while it was being renovated so I can’t comment on what it is so much as what it will be, but there are good omens for the future here. Still, I can’t shake the feeling that the price of a room is a bit high for this sort of place. Rooms are all sizable and there’s a coin-op laundry on site, albeit a small one. The showers in the bathrooms all have glass doors and are especially clean and polished, and the restaurant sounds like it’ll be very well-decorated and reasonably priced once finished. Even if it isn’t, this hotel is located very close to dozens of other restaurants, and there’s a shopping center with a Whole Foods that’s accessible via a side entrance.

    The Beacon Hill Holiday Inn is in the midst of extensive renovations, and the early results look promising. The rooms have a very modern feel to them, especially for a chain like Holiday Inn. The restaurant was being renovated when I visited the hotel, but the design plans include a fireplace, which should be cool. Prices at the restaurant (assuming the menu doesn’t change substantially) seem reasonable – their version of a cheeseburger cost $13. This Holiday Inn is in a pretty accessible location by Mass General Hospital. MGH’s sleep lab is actually in the hotel, which does seem a little off-putting. And while there is a gym at the hotel, there are no weight machines or free weights, which is a letdown. As a bonus, Wi-Fi is free.

    I stayed at this 3-star hotel several times between 2003-2005 when I was researching a play about Paul Revere. It's not fancy, but it's location is close to Faneuil Hall and many historic sites. They offer high speed internet and a fitness center. For a good, clean, well located hotel, you can't beat it. As I recall I typically snagged it for between $60-$70 a night.
