Charming place with a very convenient location as well as helpful staff. The rooms are really nice but if there is someone in the room above you, you will hear every footstep that they make. They were having problems with their TV provider while we were there, but seemed in no particular hurry to get the problem fixed. Otherwise, an...

It's hard to classify. Quirky gives the wrong impression. Different also indicates a negative which it is not. It is St Botolph - comfortable, convenient, spacious and well equipped with nice decoration. The inn was very comfortable with a good kitchenette and in a lovely quiet area just a stone's throw from all the activity. The Back Bay area is...

Overall very pleased with our stay at the Inn. First time in Boston and have to say location was ideal. Amazingly quiet considering how close it is to the Prudential Centre. Train stop nearby got us to all main attractions within 10 minutes. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The keyless entry is easy, but I did miss the personal...

Our son and daughter-in-law gave us a gift certificate for the Inn. It was our 2nd stay here and we hope to return in the fall. It is a convenient location and the accomodations are excellent. While we didn't use the kitchenette for actual meals, it is handy to have all the amentities of a small apartment and much more...

The Inn is a bit unusual in that rooms are serviced only on a weekly basis. Therefore you make your bed up each day, clean your dishes and hang your towels carefully for drying. Equally, one makes one's own breakfast. Anyone not prepared for this should not stay at the Inn. Otherwise, this is a fantastic hotel -- we had...

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us and others. I am genuinely pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay! It's true that we stand apart from other hotels, for many positive reasons, one of which is our unique approach to housekeeping. Our thorough cleaning staff can provide service to a room...

The location is the only plus to this hotel. It does have a full kitchen which is a plus for a long stay. The service is indifferent...close to horrible. The continental breakfast is on par with a Quality Inn. The management makes NO effort to make this the unique stay they advertise. It is VERY average (or below) with a...

We enjoyed our stay tremendously this past weekend. The location was ideal, with restaurants and nightlife within walking distance. The room was very clean and comfortable. We will be coming back on our next weekend excursion to Boston.

We stayed here while we both were running in the Boston marathon and had a wonderfully comfortable stay. It is an ideal location to walk and enjoy many sights, restaurants, shopping etc. The room was well equipped and the atmosphere was a really pleasant change from the "cookie-cutter" style of hotel rooms. We both thought the breakfast bar was well...

Management didn't care, the staff didn't care. I had several problems with my room, all of which were promised to be taken care of, yet ignored. I was really hoping to have a good experience at this lovely hotel like from what I have read in other reviews.

We were traveling with 7 family members and wanted a memorable stay in Boston. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. Our rooms had efficiency kitchens - the larger room had a full refrigerator and 2 element stove. Rooms are well-appointed, comfortable and roomy. The hotel is 1 short block from the prudential stop on the subway green line - about 4-5 stops...

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.
