In a neighborhood packed with chain business hotels, the MidTown feels almost like a suburban motel: It’s just two stories, with a seasonal outdoor pool. Many guests are part of tour groups or here for conventions; others are families who can book adjoining rooms and enjoy easy access to the Prudential Center, across the street. The well-maintained guest rooms are large and utilitarian, decorated in standard contemporary hotel style; bathrooms are small. Huntington Avenue can be busy, especially if there’s an event at Symphony Hall; request a room at the back of the building if traffic noise bothers you. And if you’re driving, note that the parking here is among the cheapest in central Boston.
