Time Out says
Another hidden gem in a historic neighborhood, the John Jeffries House was once a boarding house for nurses before morphing into a 46-room boutique hotel. The studio rooms are the bargains here, but even they feature river views and unique architectural details. (Some of the larger rooms also include kitchenettes, allowing guests to save money on meals.) The courtyard garden is a lovely place to start your day with some coffee before you begin wandering the cobblestoned streets of historic Beacon Hill to explore its retail shops and antique stores.
