    For those unfamiliar with both places, this is a very good move.

    Boxboro location has lost hotel franchises over the years due to issues that seemingly (based on reading more recent reviews) were never resolved satisfactorily. I know that I complained to Sheraton's corporate office about the place ~25 yrs ago. I don't recall the details but a professional org I was part of was meeting there at that time. Shortly afterward it was no longer a Sheraton.

    I have worked computer and gun shows over the years at the Marlboro location and have nothing but good things to say about the facilities. It is the Best Western Hotel and Trade Center. The Trade Center (a separate building next door to the hotel) can handle 500 tables and a mini-restaurant. The hotel side seems to be well-run. Lots of parking there too. So I'm looking forward to the new location.
