Perfect Location for Exploring the Best of Boston
Perfect location for exploring the heart of Boston’s Back Bay neighborhoods. Great access to public transportation, fantastic restaurants and an easy cab/uber or even walk across the Charles to Cambridge. Beautifully kept property that truly gives you the feel of what it is like to live in the heart of the city. We lived a few blocks from this property for almost 30 years and it felt like returning home during our visit.

Boston's best old and new
Tucked away just off the beaten path this place was a wonderful combination of old Boston architecture and modern conveniences. The room was spacious, the bathroom spotless, and everything seemed new. Great location, too.

No parking.
Lovely spot if you are without a car. Stressful neighborhood parking for me and I don’t recommend it if you have to contend with that otherwise pleasant and well located. Decent value and amazing location.

Very Good 8.0
Pretty hotel. Not exceptional on the level Of a Relais or Luxury hotels of the world. But a nice hotel. Exceptional building . The renovation was a bit sub par. Clearly the wainscoting and moldings were not properly sanded before painting which takes away from the overall elegance. Service was efficient but not gracious. Nobody Offers to help with bags Etc. I’m imagining that the owners of this hotel are very hands off. They could develop an exceptional reputation with a bit more care and management
