In general, I liked this hotel. It is a great value for the location, and included a basic breakfast. This was not a greatbreakfast but good enough for me, as I had to be at a conference for job interviews, and didn't really need any added stress to the day of finding breakfast. Like some of the other reviews on...

The Charlesmark is squeezed into a narrow space. It has minimal function facilities and no lobby. We felt as if our function was double booked, and we could have piled into any old bar for a better experience. We were squeezed into a narrow bar while the while the public was served on the sidewalk and a political meeting took...

The CharlesMark Hotel, a charming boutique hotel, is located in the heart of the Back Bay and costs a fraction of the price of other hotels. Right out the CharlesMark front door brings you to some of the best shops and restaurants on Boylston and Newbury Streets; there's Copley Square, Trinity Church, and the park at Copley Square; and across...

We stayed at the Charlesmark for St. Patrick's day last week and just had the best experience! To start the location is fabulous. Right in the middle of all of the action and great for the kids because the Public library, mall, and Copley Square (park) are right across the street and you are right around the corner from Newbury...

The room was small, but very clean. The lighting wasn't very good. The breakfast was skimpy - so I just got coffee and did my own thing. It wasn't the best I have ever stayed in, but it definitely wasn't the worst! It was decent for the price.

Once or twice a year I will meet my sisters in Boston getaway weekend. We have stayed at the Charlesmark several times, and always have a great experience.

The hotel is really well located, everything could be done on foot and in case it's needed the subway is close to it.

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.
