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.

the website for this hotel looked great but the rooms were disappointing. Not in our mind a boutique hotel. If I could equate in UK terms, it reminded me of a Premier Inn - functional and practical. There was no wardrobe except enough room to hang up shirts - so girls, no

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. It was our first time in Boston, and we were looking for somewhere that wouldn't break the bank. We were warmly welcomed when we arrived and were able to leave our bags until check in. The rooms are cozy, but we were not planning on

We stayed at this hotel because of recommendations on TA. Unfortunartely we were very disappointed.The plus points are the location and the fact that there is free wifi in the hotel. Other than that, it wasn't good. We had booked one of the 'larger rooms' and it was tiny. The

We needed a nice place to stay that wasn't $300 to $400 a night like all the other hotesl, and Charlesmark fit the bill. As other reviewers have noted, GREAT location near the T and premiere shopping. The rooms are very small, but very nice and modern. I was doubtful about our

We spent two nights at the hotel and enjoyed it very much. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the room although small was clean and well maintained. We were located on the fourth floor and found it very quiet and not noisy at all. We really liked the location as it was

It is right across the street. The hotel is in an excellent location.

What's so "premium" about it? I got a room on an upper level with a window facing a brick wall. It was quiet, but even facing the brick wall, there was limited light. It was one of their least expensive rooms, maybe because it was so small....but it was still pretty quiet.

We stayed there last October. Took the Back Bay Logan Express which is bus transport and operated by the city from the airport to Copley Square which is where the hotel is located. Great, inexpensive way to get to the hotel; only $5 per person. The subway system is great to get around town but to get to the cruise port, we took a cab. Not very expensive.You would have to take the subway and bus to get to the port from the hotel. Great little boutique hotel. We enjoyed our stay there. We got to the hotel before check in time and they took our luggage so we could go sight seeing and it was in our room when we returned.

Sue, The nearest parking garage is Prudential, however, this is going to cost you upwards of $45.00. We offer a discounted rate at the garage on 100 Clarendon street. Once the ticket is validated by the hotel the rate is $28.00. I would suggest dropping your bags off at the hotel and then we can give you physical directions to the garage. If you have any additional questions please call us at 617-247-1212. I hope this information is helpful. Take care, Curtis
