The room is small but comparable to hotel rooms in NYC - but much better. The room is sufficient, modern, clean and neat. The price (paid a total of a little over $300/night - tax included) is a lot cheaper than other hotels in and around Copley (others go for >$500/night). The hotel is located conveniently close to almost everything...

We stayed here only one night before flying out on an early morning flight the next day, but we loved our stay! We were a few hours early before official check-in time and there weren't any rooms available at the time we showed up. We grabbed some lunch down the street, came back, and they graciously let us in early....

The room is meant for people who don't plan on spending much time in their hotel room but need a really great, clean, comfortable safe night's sleep. On the positive side, it was affordable for Boston, the bed is very comfortable, the pillows are the most comfortable pillows I've ever used and the whole hotel was super clean. I didn't...

Having had bad experiences with boutique hotels in the past, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Although on the small size, it felt cosy rather than cramped and the standards were exceptionally high. The staff were also very friendly and extremely helpful and informative. This place is perfect for a short...

The only downside is small rooms. They utilize space, comfy beds & nice shower. Stayed three nights & on 3rd floor heard very little noise from street. Marathon finish line was seen from our window. Loved the location!

First of all, I would definately stay here again. This was a perfect short-stay hotel for me and my wife. We were in Boston for a concert at Fenway Paak. The rooms are a little small but that's OK as they really do a great job maximizing space. Room was clean & hospitable. The staff was terrific & they had...

Stayed on July 22, 2016 for one night. We loved our short but sweet stay at The Charlesmark. It was our first time in Boston. After traveling from a name-brand hotel in a different state earlier in the week (one that was *not* clean, updated or relaxing) we thoroughly enjoyed the room we had at The Charlesmark and finally felt...

Stayed at the Charlesmark from July 6-9/16 before a cruise. What a fantastic location! Having never been to Boston, we didn't know where to stay. Several other reviewers recommended this area. So close, in walking distance of everything. Went to Fenway Park, which Claire at the front desk arranged for us, did the student-led tour of Harvard, which we'd highly...

Rooms very tiny (no space for a desk so not good to work from) but otherwise very good and recently renovated. Excellent shower. Bed is twin, so only suitable for one person. At 200 dollars per night cheap for Boston, but in any other place would be overpriced

From the airport take the Back Bay Logan Express Airport to Copley Square bus. Pay the $7.50 fare right on the bus, and you are the first of only two stops. It was super quick, and the driver even tried to refuse my tip. I rolled my suitcase across Copley Square past Trinity Church and watched a demonstration on 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.
