The hotel rooms were in need of remodeling . The Comfort Inn in the Boston area ,worst of all . Very far from town and right next to the commuter railway tracks . Very noisy, and the staff not very competent . Confusion about luggage and placement in the room . The Washington Plaza hotel in DC was the best hotel on the whole tour . Tell Cosmos to use more such hotels . I will most likely not use Cosmos again . The sister companies much better .
I thought that some of the hotels would have had a slightly better facility/position.
