Nice hotel, great location, friendly staff
We traveled to South Tamworth, New Hampshire, by way of Boston, MA and then North Conway, NH, for the wedding of our niece to her husband. The trip was brief - Thursday evening to Sunday, but filled with family, fun, and some exploring.
My wondeful wife was able to get us a suite at the Town Place Suites… right across the street from Chelsea River and the Chelsea Drawbridge.
We arrived, late, in a steady rain, and got a little damp walking, and thankfully the host and the lobby were welcoming.
The room is a typical Town Suite room… kitchenette, bed, sofabed, bathroom.
The decoration is modern / up-to-date.
The location is convenient. At least Siri directed us via a tunnel… we learned the next day that Highway 1A out of Logan will get you there… it’s about a mile from the entrance to the airport.
The hotel is located directly across the street from the Chelsea St. drawbridge across the Chelsea Creek; if you’re fortunate like we were, you’ll get to see it in action.
And being that close to the airport you’re sure to get great views of planes departing and arriving!
Breakfast is included.
Noisy and lack of hot breakfast

I would skip this option unless you really need to be close by the airport. The surrounding neighborhood is a working class/industrial neighborhood and kind of sketchy at night. Rooms are clean and there is a shuttle to the airport which takes about 10 minutes. No issues with the Wifi speed. The negatives are that the noise insolation is incredibly poor so you are listening to trucks and planes all night as if there are no windows. The breakfast are takeway bags full of cold foods, not sure why they can't at least provide a hot breakfast option. There is also no safe in the room.
Monica, hot sauce and free xport!!

We love the location. Next (5 min) to BOS. they have a FREE shuttle to pick you up from the car rental plus take you to your flight, starting at 4am - sign up at desk). Speaking of the front desk, I can’t tell you how impressive Monica is. She was working the desk alone and successfully juggled several people at the desk, several phone calls, gave us information about delivery food because their delightful little "bistro" bar/food was closed. All of this with style, grace, calm and professionalism. She's among the nicest staff I've come across in my decades of beings Marriott member. On a previous stay I asked the bartender for some "hot sauce" and he asked me if I liked it hot. I said I like to sweat but don't just give me battery acid. He suggested Chelsea Hot Sauce. It's made by a local fire department and it's fantastic. It starts slow but gives heat afterwards. Loved it so much I now buy it whenever I stay and even online to give as gifts. Can't say how much this Marriott has been a really great find. Great staff, super easy in and out of BOS plus Chelsea hot sauce AND Monica!!!
Clean and Comfortable

My wife and I had an early flight out of Boston and needed a place to stay Monday night. Arriving at Logan Monday evening I called for the hotel shuttle and spoke with a very friendly Monica who said she would send the shuttle over. Within 8 minutes the shuttle arrived with a very friendly welcome from the driver. After a short ride upon checking in we were greeted with a smile and welcome from the registration desk. During the check in process I noticed this was Monica whom I had earlier spoke with. Monica was very informative of the dining info, bar and morning bag offered with breakfast goodies. Once we arrived at our room I was very much pleased with the layout and furnishings. There was a refrigerator, stove top, microwave, coffee pot and dishwashers with an assortment of plates, cups, glasses and eating utensils. The bathroom was well lit with an outstanding shower with its oval sliding glass door. The beds were very comfortable making for a good nights sleep. The morning breakfast bag consisted of a bottle of apple juice, blueberry muffin, egg and sausage sandwich. Our check out experience was very friendly and professional as well. The drive to the airport was with a very courteous driver. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Convenient to Logan; Extremely Noisy

The staff was welcoming and helpful. The workout room was clean and well supplied. The upgraded room was excellent, except for the continual (all night) street noise. It was like the walls were paper thin.
I do not know if they have rooms that are protected from the street noise. If I were to stay again I would phone and ask if they have quiet rooms and get a guarantee that I would be in one of the quiet rooms, or (in spite of the otherwise excellent hotel) I would NOT stay there.
