About David Hood

Self Employed in Plymouth Ma. Went to school in Boston, met my wife there so made sense to have our vacation home there. We use this for weekends in the city when its not rented. We love this location.

David Hood purchased this condo in 2011

Why David Hood chose Massachusetts

Always wanted a place in the city. The loft feel was important to us. High exposed beam ceilings, brick walls made this a great choice for us.

What makes this condo unique

Location, Location, Location. And Concierge building. Marriott owns ten units in the building that they use for their own use and as short term rentals. Just a great spot.

Perfect location. Perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place. Easy walk to or quick uber ride to wherever you would need to go. It's the perfect location truly. But the best part hands down has to be Rose at the front desk. One of the kindest humans we have ever met and helped us with any and everything we needed. We will definitely be renting this place again if and when we return to Boston in the future.

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a month here and having lived in Boston for a few years before, I can say without a doubt this was an ideal location. While you're downtown, the noise of the city is absent in this nook of the financial district. Check-in/out was a breeze. Dave's communication throughout the process from booking to departure was great. He was always available but 100% respectful of your privacy. They layout of the studio made it feel extremely spacious. Everything you could need for an extended stay was there. Rose at the front desk was wonderful and adds to the security of the building as well as the wonderful hospitality. Wifi could have been a bit stronger, but we're working remotely, so that's probably more of a factor for us than others. The only real issue we had, and this falls on the building HOA, not the owner Dave, was that the heat for the building was turned off in anticipation of a warmer May. Unfortunately, as Boston weather can do, May was nowhere near warm, making for a cold apartment most of the month. April had some warmer days so I can understand the thought process behind the decision, but after a number of days in the 40s you would have thought they'd have turned it back on. Luckily, Dave had extra blankets available. Overall, we loved the place and would stay there again.

Great Boston Condo -Business or Personal Travel

  • 5 of 5

What a great Boston Condo! This studio unit centrally located in the Financial District and is in a great location to do it all, from business to tourist attractions. Accessible to the T, Uber taxis and zip cars. Parking is available for your personsl car. I highly recommend this safe, very quiet, clean and comfortably furnished unit

Best Stay Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 6 weeks here and it is the best decision to stay in this apartment while in Boston

1) Owners: Dave and his wife are extremely friendly, always a phone call away if you need anything, gives you the privacy you need and will not disturb your stay at all. Was ready to orientate me to the places around the apartment and welcomed me with open arms on the day of my arrival. Check-out was not a hassle at all. Payment was done prior to the trip and no hassle at all.

2) Location: Right in the middle of a prime location near many tourists attractions that you can visit over the weekends, and yet quiet neighbourhood that wouldn't disturb your night. Many food options + supermarkets + groceries shops around. Short walk and easily accessible to the train, the harbor AND the airport. If you need nightlife, there are plenty of pubs and bars around the area which opens till late at night.

3) Apartment: Well furnished apartment with EVERYTHING you will need from your own washer, dryer, ironing, additional towels, showering necessities, cooking necessities, well equipped kitchen with all the utensils and crockery that you think of for both cooking and baking, large fridge to store all your groceries, high speed wifi, cable TV, and a friendly concierge, Rose, who's always ready to help if you need to. Built in dishwasher to do the dishes, had a microwave, oven for baking and 4 stoves for cooking which was MORE than enough. Had a queen sized bed that can easily fit 2-3 people and a sofa couch that can fit another 1 person with plenty of additional pillows and blankets. A lot of walking space with a large wardrobe to hang your clothing in. Plenty of privacy if you need it with inbuilt blinds that can be operated with a simple remote. Toilet was perfect with a lot of space and a huge bathtub. The pictures shown here do not do the apartment justice because it is A LOT better than you can imagined it to be.

4) Cost: Definitely worth it given the amenities, location as well as the extent of how well equipped it was.

5) Security: Extremely safe at night to walk around on the streets, and the apartment and building both requires keys to enter in, making it very safe. If you do any online deliveries to the apartment, it will be safely kept in the mail area on Level 1 and Dave will very promptly inform you to collect it as well

All in all, definitely a must stay here and will absolutely come back to stay here if I'm back in Boston! It's a home away from home!

A great, cozy condo ...and a super location!

I just spent six weeks here and would heartily recommend it. The place is charming and comfortable and has everything you need. I always felt safe in the building and the area. The owner is very accomodating too. I would return in a flash!

I stayed at this condo for 6 weeks in the summer to get away from the heat in the southern California desert.

As a former Massachusetts resident and a retired employee of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, this location is ideal. Less than a block from the Greenway (a beautiful, soothing spot) and near the Boston Harbor Hotel with concerts during the week and outdoor movies on Friday--very soothing after a day of walking to all the nearby tourist spots. Close to the T and Uber service is wonderful.

The condo is lovely, spacious and the owner installed special windows to prevent traffic and outside noises from interfering with sleep. The furnishings and appliances are top notch. The dishwasher so quiet I am planning to buy the same model for my own home. In a building between a restaurant and a wine shop, and surrounded by several restaurants, the location is ideal. Hope I can stay again next summer.
