The condo was as described, but had a more comfy feel to it than I expected. It's not only beautifully decorated, but there were amenities like a 55" TV, bluetooth speaker system, Apple TV and a TV in both bedrooms. We were warmly greeted and given any help that we needed. It is a locked building so I felt safe coming and going at night when I was alone. We stayed during the week of the Boston marathon when the city is packed. So Brookline was an excellent location, close enough to walk to places like Brookline village, although most of the time we used the "UBER" personal driver system to see the sites, so transportation wasn't costly. If you make it to Little Italy in the north end, splurge on some authentic Italian desserts at Mike's Pastrys! I also recommend the part land / part water "Duck Tour".
