Stayed there for two weeks and everything was great - fairly large room with a comfy bed and a nice sitting area, reasonable WiFi speeds, good breakfast buffet. Location is great too, just next to the T and in a nice area.

Hotel is 100% non smoking, but it’s on a Main Street so I’m sure you could go out to the sidewalk/driveway area to smoke as long as it’s away from the front area.

Same answer as others. You can call hotel and ask for early check in but they do have a room off the lobby where you can check your luggage if room is not ready. Nice restrooms just off lobby to use to freshen up.
