Breakfast is available for a fee as well. Guests generally like the free shuttle, but some noted that it may not be the best way to get to the airport as other stops can lengthen the ride significantly. Rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. Guests like the option to get a drink at the bar in the lobby. We recommend the DoubleTree for anyone who wishes to stay near UMass Boston.
