Hey thanks for the great rating!! Come back soon.

4 out of 5
I stayed at the Porter Square Hotel for 3 nights. I booked a twin bed room. It was small but clean and the beds were comfortable. Hotels in Boston are very expensive and this one was the cheapest I found for an easy commute to Kendall where I attended a work event. It's right next to Porter station on the red line so great commute to the city center too. And nice pub next door ;)

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with some great feedback on your recent stay with us at the Porter Square Hotel! The twin rooms are pretty cozy and tiny, but extremely comfortable! It is good to know if ever back in the neighborhood that the queen size rooms do have a bit more space and sometimes are better for longer stays. It is also great to hear the area was very accessible for your travels around the city, since we are so close to public transportation, great eats, and shopping! We look forward to the next time your travels bring you back in the neighborhood! Take care. -Zackary Beck, Rooms Division Manager
