This compact but stylish mid-range boutique hotel is one of the best values in Back Bay. It's conveniently located across the street from the Copley T station, the Boston Public Library, and the Boston Marathon finish line, and just down the street from Copley Square. The 40 rooms are small but clean, modern, and utilitarian in an IKEA-eque fashion. Amenities are few -- just free Wi-Fi and a free continental breakfast -- but the trendy lounge and outdoor patio contribute to a lively atmosphere. Only the nearby (and no-frills) Hotel 140 offers comparable rates in the neighborhood, but most travelers prefer this hotel.
