Just leaving the Holiday Inn Boston at Beacon Hill to head back to Canada. The hotel was a 3-star get from Hotwire, and if this is typical of 3-star quality there, then I’d stick with 4-star or higher: room door opens only half the time, bathroom door hits the toilet on opening, stains on the chair, dowdy old furniture, lobby that feels like an Econolodge. The pillows are nice, but that’s about all.
A week ago I paid $30 more for a room at the InterContinental and that was a $30 well-spent.
I am now officially a hotel snob.
