What do our guests say about their stay?
The majority of our guests are extremely satisfied with their stay. Prior to making a reservation, however, we suggest that prospective guests take a moment to review our website. Phone and email inquiries are also encouraged. Our Front Desk team is always happy to answer additional questions and to note any special requests that may pertain to forthcoming visits.
Guest Room Square Footage:
We do offer various types of guest rooms, with a variety of bedding options. As an historic property however, some of our room sizes tend to be smaller than those found at more contemporary neighboring properties. We are happy to discuss room requirements with guests prior to arrival and will make every effort to accommodate special requests as availability allows.
Guest Room noise:
As with most urban hotels, ambient street noise is a factor to be considered. The fact that our hotel rooms are located on upper level floors tends to mitigate much of the problem. For light sleepers, however, complimentary ear plugs are always available at our Front Desk.
Guest Room Views:
Our hotel rooms offer either street views or interior views of courtyards and rooftops. While we do our best to accommodate view requests, our building is designed with specific room types, which vary from floor to floor, and requests for specific views cannot, unfortunately, always be guaranteed.
Check In and Check Out Times:
Check-in is at 3PM and check-out is at 11AM. What do I need in order to check-in? Guest must be 21 years of age and show a Government issued photo ID upon arrival. Additionally, a major credit card such as Visa, MasterCard, Amex or Discover is required to complete the check in process. Typically, the credit card is authorized for the total amount of the stay plus a small additional deposit to cover any incidental charges. Unfortunately, we do not accept cash deposits; however, guests may settle the final bill by paying with cash at the time of departure.
Is smoking allowed in the rooms or in the hotel?
Hotel 140 is a 100% Non-Smoking Hotel. A penalty fee of $250 will be applied if evidence of smoking is discovered in a guestroom.
How much do you charge for wireless high speed Internet access?
Wireless high speed Internet access is complimentary for hotel guests.

Unfortunately, we do not have either a fitness center or pool on site. Guests may purchase a day pass to The Boston Sports Club, which is located just 2 blocks from our front door.
Do you offer Room Service?
Room Service is not available. However, a copy of the Local Dining Delivery Guide, which features menus from over two dozen area restaurants, can be found in all of our guestrooms.

A large grocery store, which is open 24 hours a day, is also available and is within a 10 minute walk from the hotel.
Do you have a Business Center? What are the hours?
Currently, we do not have a Business Center. However, members of the Front Desk Staff are available 24 hours to assist with printing of boarding passes or ticket purchases.

Do you offer free Shuttle Service from Logan International Airport?
