I attended a conference at the Hynes Convention Center and stayed at the Charlesmark. The hotel was conveniently located just a few blocks from the convention center and within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. A light breakfast is included and there is also a Starbucks just a few minutes walk on Boylston Street. The room was typical for a boutique hotel, small but well furnished, only lacking a room safe. The staff was wonderful - everyone I encountered during my 3 night stay was friendly, knowledgable and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Request a quiet room

What a great spot - right on Copley Square and the T. Very clean and well-maintained. Friendly, attentive staff. Parking a pain in the a$$ but if you plan on driving in Boston, this will be the least of your worries. Rooms are on the small side but this isn't a surprise - unless you plan on spending your stay locked in your room, it shouldn't be a factor. We were on the sixth floor and were well-insulated from any outside noise - in this case the Bruins' Stanley Cup parade goers who were gathering on Boylston @ 7AM - 6 hours before parade time.

Located across the street from the Boston Public Library, on Boylston Street, this boutique hotel is, in my opinion, the best value in the Copley Square area. It is small and trendy with an art deco ambiance in the lobby/bar area and in the rooms. The furnishings are contemporary, the room has surround sound in both the bedroom and the bathroom and the bed is really comfortable. The bathrooms are really pretty with slate tiles on the floor, walls and into the shower. The queen size rooms are very spacious but the double room is very tight, so choose the queen size room if it is available. The front desk staff are very friendly and gracious. I have stayed here three times in the past year and, for the money, it just can't be beat! You can stay a block away in a bigger, fancier hotel with restaurants and bars and shops and pay almost twice as much. If you aren't interested in paying a premium for those "amenities", then stay at the Charlesmark. You won't regret it!

Room Tip: Ask for the queen size room.

Great staff, great location, stylish and clean, good buy. Yes, the room was on the small side (but not the smallest Boston room we've stayed in), but the room was designed so well that every inch of space is used to the maximum. Our room was facing Boylston Street, so there was some street noise, but that's to be expected. Continental breakfast was included with the room and was decent. For the location and price, this hotel is a gem.

With a spur of the moment change in hotel plans, we came across this hotel name & a phone number. We called and they were able to find us a room on a two day notice. Once we arrived we found the rooms were small but the next day they were able to accommodate us with a larger room. This small hotel was centrally located in downtown Boston and the staff were very helpful. There were no frills but the personal attentiveness to our needs far outweighed the the feeling of a "big box" hotel. I also thought the prices were very reasonable.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the few 'larger' rooms.
