I stayed at the Charlesmark while attending a conference at the nearby convention center. We arrived early Saturday morning, and our room was unfortunately not ready yet, but it was perfect time to take the time to go around. By the time we got back, our bags were in our room, and music greeted us as we entered the room...

Stayed at the Charlesmark in May 2008 for 2 nights, and I had a mixed experience. I arrived early (my fault) and my room wasn't ready. The receptionist checked for any available rooms but said the only one she had was near the bar and I had asked for a quiet one - top marks for knowing my request and...

My husband and I stayed at the Charlesmark for one night. It was easy to find, quick to check into, quiet and nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable, and the room had everything we needed. The decor was European classy. While the room was small, it had a great view overlooking a bustling city street and the finish line of...

We found such good reviews on tripadvisor that we decided to give the Charlesmark Hotel a go. It is in the heart of Boston right across from the T and is priced very well. It is recently renovated, the breakfast was good, and the staff is extremely friendly. A nice touch was the XM radaio in the rooms and the...

Very nicely designed hotel in the beautiful Boston Back Bay. I especially loved the view from my 6th floor room out onto Boylston street and the Boston Public Library.

We just returned from a weekend stay at the Charlesmark in Downtown Boston. Although the weekend was damp and cold it didn't hamper us from having a great time in this marvellous city. The Charlesmark proved to be everything I expected it to be: 1. Reasonably priced. 2. Excellent location.. 3. Personable staff who were very eager to attend to...

Stayed in this hotel for two nights. Great location but I would say it was a posh B&B more than a hotel. The room was very small and there was nowhere to hang anything up. There was an old fashoined TV and VHS player but no clear instructions how to operate them. There is a thai restaurant next door that...

I stayed at the Charlesmark for business purposes at the end of March. It was the second time I had stayed there and I was again pleased with my stay. Since my first stay the lobby area, bar, and lounge had been completed and I was impressed with these new areas. The hotel has a modern vibe, but no so...

I have just returned from a four night stay at the Charlesmark due to a business conference in Boston. I had done a lot of cheking prior to making a reservation because it is a pretty expensive town in which to stay, and even the "conference rates" for other hotels were out of my limited budget. Then I discovered the...

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.
