    Chose Hotel Indigo Newton because it offered reasonable rate vs downtown Boston hotels. Rooms are modern and comfortable. Wifi internet free. Indigo Newton is literally next to the Riverside "T" station (end of D line). Very convenient. Downtown Boston is 30-45 minutes by T (depending on your destination). We managed to do everything, and more, that was on our planned city trip. Leaving the car at Indigo Newton ($7 a night) saved the hastle of downtown traffic/parking etc. Breakfast included is limited to $25 per couple (or pay extra) which made selection limited. Main restaurant dinners were gourmet, and good quality wine list. Recommended.

    No in-room refrigerator (and no mini bar). $4 for bottled water (in room).

    Very good

    The hotel design is beautiful, the rooms, pool is lovely, the location near 128 and Newton/Boston is great.

    The service was very poor. There was a private party at the pool, there was no place for guests to sit by the pool and the staff were quite rude. The breakfast service was very slow. I've been to Hotel Indigo several times and the service has always been inefficient.

    Exceptional

    Everyone I met was genuinely friendly and helpful. The room was well designed, crisp and clean (European feel). It was very clean. The hotel had what appeared to be a "hopping" bar/nightlife but the location, below the lobby, did not have much spill over into the rooms, which is appreciated. I would definitely stay there again.

    No bath tub. I would have loved the opportunity for a long bath after a busy day of work, however the shower pressure and design was great.

    Great location, close to the highway and T. The pool area and lounge are great way to unwind in the summer and especially after work. Free wi-fi is great. The front desk was very accommodating.

    The elevators were a little slow for only being 6 floors. Food menu was pricey and there wasn't a lot of close by options.

    The hotel is in a perfect location - just off the highway and a 5 minute walk to the T. It has a beautiful pool, restaurant, and lounge areas. We will definitely be back!

    We loved the rooms and pool area.

    The pool bathroom was horrible. Breakfast was great. With the exception of the home fries They were hard over cooked. The dining room had dust on the ledges and old food on ledge also. The wait staff was friendly but not organized I had to wait for utensils so long that I got up and got my own.

    Good

    Housekeeping staff and front desk staff did a fantastic job; very courteous and professional. Also, room service was timely and efficient. The wait-staff serving the pool area are OUTSTANDING, and should be commended for staying on top of their game like they do!

    You have a beautiful pool. So much, that I am sure it is one of the main attractions for people who decide to stay at your property. However, paying guests of the hotel should not be made to feel "uncomfortable" or "unwelcome" at the pool, because of a private party. Though there were notices about the 21+ crowd on Sundays, I would like to point out that guests are paying much more than just $30 to stay at your property! Very disappointing. I hope that management finds a way to balance the "21+ pool party" crowd and the paying guests, even if it means closing the pool at a certain point to paying guests....however I imagine that would significantly impact your property's Sunday evening revenue...:/ Also, the restaurant needs significant improvement. For a suburban hotel property, I think Bokx 109 is very expensive. For these "fine-dining" level prices, both your service staff and the food quality should be held to a much higher standard; they are not. Food and service are mediocre at best, and fixtures are outdated. :(

    The bed was good, the towels were good.

    The room was not clean properly, there was dust and old hair around the bed, someone left a dirty cleaning towel. The floor in the restaurant had debris of food on the floor even early in the morning. When I complained people were blaming other teams, not trying to clean for us.
