INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 July 2016

The CCB is located on Commonwealth Ave, and less than a block from the Boston Public Garden. I appreciated the location and the pretty boulevard in a residential area. This is a classy looking brownstone, with elegant furnishings. The hotel was full when we stayed, yet so quiet. There is not a constant bustle of staff and guests. The service... More

This is a B & B that is also an actual meeting place for members of The College Club of Boston, so the breakfast room and other rooms were swarming with ladies at meetings each of the four days we stayed there. We particularly felt like intruders in the breakfast room, supposedly a place where you can get coffee or... More

A little gem in Boston's Back Bay. Room was a nice size, and faced the street. We opted for a private bath. Bathroom clean and nicely appointed. Windows were old and blinds did not close adequately. Window AC unit loud and filter needed cleaning. We opened the windows to get some fresh air, but the room would have benefited from... More

The BackBay neighborhood location is perfect for a stay in Boston. Near the Boston Common, Newbury St., great restaurants, and a T station. There is even an Old Time Trolley Station within a short walking distance. Accomodations were perfectly lovely and safe. Very quiet and peaceful. The breakfast area is very homey and many selections offered. Coffe, tea and cookies... More

We found this hotel to be charming and romantic. I would recommend the larger rooms with private baths. Our room was 425 on the front of the building. The hotel is a half block away from the Boston city park and within walking distance of some fine restaurants.

This is a lovely and affordable place to stay. I was doing research at the Boston Public Library, and it was perfect. Felt very safe and easy-going. Located in lovely avenue, with Boston Common at the far end. Shared bathroom was not an issue. It is a historic building, and is presented and decorated in keeping with this. Lots of... More

Loved The College Club. It has atmosphere, is cozy and is situated right near the Commons. Uber taxis everywhere when needed for getting around. A lovely breakfast every morning as well. I would suggest to the hosts that they add an honour bar for cocktail hour - maybe some red and white wine?

I stayed here the night before a wedding because I accidentally made my reservation at the wedding hotel a night short. I would recommend it and stay here again, the location was great!

A friend and I stayed in the Connecticut room. It was large, with high ceilings and a big bay window. The location is fantastic and because you are in a brownstone on Commonwealth Avenue you feel like you are a part of the very nicest part of Boston. You can pretty much walk everywhere, and if you don't want to... More

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.
