After reading mixed reviews we were a little unsure about this hotel, but it is a little gem and we would reccomend it to anyone. Friendly staff (for the most part), clean hotel, free breakfast, nice food and all about 10 feet from the nearest T station. Rooms are small, but certainly comfortably big enough for two people on a...

There is a lot to like about this hotel. Location, cleanliness, great staff, well decorated rooms and bathrooms. I love that the sheets and towels smell as though they came from my home dryer. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room boasts unique storage solutions. What I didn't like was initially being given a room in the basement but...

Location of this hotel can't be beat. It's within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and landmarks. The room was clean and spacious. Get to the lobby early for their breakfast foods (muffins, bagels, fruit & coffee) or you will miss it. Only small thing to mention was the noise of other guests in the hallway ---walls are thin.

The location was excellent, the room was fine. It was so noisy we had to check out. Guests partying in the halls in the middle of the night, no night manager on duty, doors slamming, staff yelling from 1 AM to 6:15 AM. We got 2 hours' sleep. My idea of hell - another night at the Charlesmark. Too bad...

We stayed at this "boutique" hotel on a recent visit one-night visit to Boston. The location is wonderful near many restaurants, stores, churches, markets and the hustle and bustle of crowds. I thought the room was somewhat pricey for the size but the place was immaculate and quite comfortable. The staff were polite and accessible. Our room was on the...

A comfortable hotel, in what seems to be a trendy area of Boston (Back Bay), just steps from subways, buses and Copley Square. Also very close to plenty of shopping and dining options. The room was clean and cozy, with simple, modern decor - great for one or two people. There was one double bed, a very nice bathroom (shower...

Great location, couldn't have asked for more! Good value, in an expensive city this is a definite find. Nice room, very clean.....but really dark at night, I'm all for mood lighting but lets's have the option of turning it up when you actually need to find something! Didn't bother with breakfast so can't comment.

We booked two nights there and where very disappointed! The first room (#403) we where offered was small, dark and very noisy, as it was right above some ac fans! The second room (#603) was a bit better as it was on the 6th floor - but still noisy - no streetnoise - but ac or generator - right outside...

I stayed in this cute little place for only one night but would definitely go back. I chose it because of the price and proximity to my daughters place and it was a delight. The rooms are very small but well appointed, clean and quiet. It has windows you can actually open to enjoy the cool breeze! The location can't...

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.
