3 star hotel
Area: Coolidge Corner, Brookline
1.08 mi from Boston Latin School
Best Rooms: There isn't too much in the way of views, as the hotel is surrounded by buildings, but rooms facing Webster St. on floors 7 - 8 are your best bet for a view of the city.
Best Rooms: Queen rooms are located in three different areas of the hotel. Some of the rooms offer lovely views of Copley Square, while rooms in the center of the building don't have views, but are much quieter.
Best Rooms: Rooms facing Clarendon St. on floors 10 - 14 offer a good view of the city.
Best Rooms: Located next to Berkeley St., Berkeley Residence is surrounded by equally tall buildings, so you won't find any great views.
