We had the most amazing stay at the Clarendon Square Inn! The staff was MORE than accommodating and suggested great restaurants in the area (as well as lots of additional advice!). The suite was beautiful with great lighting and amazing woodwork. Perfect location for walking to boutique shops, bakeries, and even hitting up the popular tourist attractions. Would LOVE to...

Reviewed 12 December 2016 via mobile

I had high hopes for Clarendon Square because of all the reviews I've read. It surpassed every expectation. Our room was pristine and the bathroom was so beautiful. The bed was large and comfortable.The rest of the home was absolutely gorgeous and the Christmas decorations just added to it all. It was the perfect place to stay around the holidays....

The Clarendon Square Inn was absolutely marvelous. The room (interior queen) was exactly as I read in the description (beautiful and romantic!) and the service was the best I have ever experienced from any hotel I have stayed at before. We spoke with the owner personally over breakfast for about an hour, and he was extremely warm and personable. The...

This review is long overdue, but what an amazing stay we had here! Stephen and Bobby were amazing hosts, and we loved everything about our stay for our 25th anniversary. The view of the city, the service, and the beautiful room made our night so wonderful. We hope to come back again, and still are appreciative of the great experience...

Absolutely one of our favorite places that we have stayed in the past few years. The Clarendon is wonderful. We stayed in the luxury room, where you basically have an entire floor of the hotel to yourself! Its was gorgeous and extremely clean. Our hostess was incredible. Friendly and super helpful. The entire experience was top notch. Did I mention...

These rooms are to die for. We have stayed in both the luxury suite and the deluxe queen. You will not be disappointed! The staff was kind and breakfast was delicious. We were greeted immediately by a host, and were given a tour, during both of our stays. We can't say enough about how lovely this place is. The bathrooms...

Why stay in a big fancy hotel (they are all the same) when you can find such a "bijoux" Inn such as the Clarendon Square? This is the second time in five years I have come to Boston to attend a course at the Copley Square Fairmont Hotel organised by Harvard Medical School. This is the second time I have...

My husband and I stayed in the Clarendon Square Inn for two nights during a recent stay in Boston. We arrived in the middle of a blizzard, but the hostess we met at the Inn was so welcoming and helped us get to our rooms to warm up quickly. The Inn is so charming! The Inn is located in a...

My wife and I recently stayed at the Clarendon Square Inn (Bed and Breakfast) for a little Valentine's weekend staycation. The B&B was recommended by some family, and so we decided to give it a go. When we arrived (with 15 minutes left before the house attendant was to leave) we walked in the door and were greeted by a...

Have stayed in this lovely brownstone twice, different rooms on different floors and both were lovely. We walked from Back Bay Station with backpacks and were so happy it quietly blended in with the rest of the neighborhood. Staff has been genuinely friendly and helpful without being stuffy and overbearing. Rooms are beautifully decorated without clutter, which I really appreciate....

Staying in South End

Neighbourhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
