The Newbury Guest House (NGH), a bed-and-breakfast boutique hotel on Newbury Street in Back Bay Boston, is located almost directly opposite the Hynes Convention Center (CC) on nearby Boylston Street -- in terms of actual steps, the NGH is closer to the CC Center's exhibition hall than the two big chain hotels at the south end of the CC complex....

My husband and I chose the Newbury Guest House based on Tripadvisor reviews and the inn's location. The location is nearly ideal. We were able to walk to the Common, historical sites, the Boston Symphony, and the Museum of Fine Arts. The folks at the front desk were friendly, attentive, and helpful. This being said, we found the hotel basic...

The Newbury Guest House is a lovely bed and breakfast located in the heart of Boston's Back Bay. The rooms are nice but a bit on the small side as are the bathrooms. The breakfast buffet was appetizing and served in the restaurant adjoining the lobby of the hotel. The staff were great, welcoming and helpful. The biggest plus was...

Quaint guest house in Boston. Enjoyed our stay at the friendly Newbury Guest House. It was in a great location and neighborhood. The young lady at the front desk was very helpful with ideas for dinner. Parking is hidden behind the hotel and was the only challenge. It's a very busy street and hard to figure out the parking when...

Wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. First trip to Boston. We loved the ambience of this property as well as the excellent location. You can walk from the house all the way to the waterfront if you do not wish to use the light rail system. Hours is located along an extremely welcoming and attractive street with restaurants...

This was our second time staying at Newburyport Guest House and we'll continue to stay here whenever we visit Boston. The location is fantastic. From the airport it's easy to catch the Logan Express bus ($7.50) to the Back Bay. Get off at Hynes convention and you're just a 2 minute walk from the hotel. Pros: hot breakfast with eggs,...

I travelled with my mum in the first week of October. We found the house was extremely clean, very comfy beds and the staff were the most friendly and helpful hosts.

Nice accommodations in picturesque Back Bay. We were able to store our luggage in their lower-level, locked luggage room early in the day and so were able to start exploring the area right away. Newbury Street is full of beautiful architecture that houses shops and restaurants galore. Although our room was small and faced the street, we slept very well....

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
