I had been looking forward to staying at this property for some time. The hotel is in need of updating. We had a double room, which was small by most double standards. The bathroom was so tiny that the door could not be opened all the way as the toilet was blocking. Turn down service was not provided, nor was...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We had a room with 2 double beds so my husband and daughter could accompany me on this 2 day business trip - a professional meeting held at the hotel. Thus, we stayed at a discounted group rate (covered by my professional expense account - otherwise I would not have splurged on a hotel in this price range). Our room...

Very nice stay. Got to hotel early to leave bag - room was available so I was able to check in. Room was LARGE, with spacious and brightly lit bathroom. Staff friendly. Bar and bar tender are first rate - a wonderful Boston tradition.

Lovely hotel across from the park and in the upscale shopping area. Great staff, nice spacious rooms with nice touches like slippers & robe layer out for you. Great food and nice views of the park from some rooms!

Beautiful hotel and first class service! They had oatmeal, Bagels, fruit and coffee laid out on the morning of the marathon and it was very helpful for stressed out runners who didn't plan so great. Really first class hotel and service.

Overall nice hotel, great location, helpful staff. Stayed for work, room was fine, a little dated, but comfortable and had a nice view of the park. Location is unbeatable and would happily stay here again if I were visiting Boston simply as a tourist because it's just across from the common with easy access to everything.

The location is perfection. The doorman had wonderful local recommendations . The amenities were average for the expectations. No late check out or early check in was inconvenient for travelers. Expensive

Good hotel with a great view of the city. Room was clean and spatious.Underground station just a minute walk from the hotel, but also very well placed, overlooking the park which is very nice to enjoy, but also on Newbury street with lots of smaller stores. The breakfast was the only disappointment.

The Taj is a luxury hotel in a great location in Boston, surrounded by high end shops and wonderful restaurants. They were very accommodating to me, even when I requested a room with a view after being placed in an internal room. They responded promptly and placed me in a corner room with views of two main streets!

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.
