“Great Stay”
Reviewed 22 December 2011

What a find! You cannot ask for a better location in the heart of Back Bay yet convenient to the South End, theater district and downtown. My room was comfortable, cozy and clean. The shared bathroom was spotless, and I had no issues with having to wait to use it. The continental breakfast was terrific. Checking in an out was a breeze. This is an amazing find at an amazing price. I would absolutely return on future trips.

Located on Commonwealth Avenue, it is centrally located for Boston's many attractions. Rates are reasonable especially for Boston. Floors have two rooms with bath and two rooms that share a bath. This time I shared a bath without encountering any problems. Elevator may be a little crowded at times but it's better than walking stairs. Rooms have a radio but no TV. My only complaint about the rooms is that they can be dark at night since there are no overhead fixtures. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Go for a room in front if you want a view but be prepared for some traffidc noise (Bostonians seem to be in love with their car's horn). Breakfast is adequate but go the The Paramount for a real breakfast. Staff very helpful in getting a room and at check-in.

Room Tip: Check the website for pictures and descriptions of the rooms.

We loved our stay at the College Club in a large room with a lovely bay window on the second floor facing away from Commonwealth Avenue. The room was quiet, very comfortable and beautifully decorated. There are no TVs in the rooms but this didn't bother us. The hotel is in a fabulous location close to shops and the Boston Common. A good breakfast is included, as is free wi-fi. The only thing I didn't like was the liquid soap in the bathroom and the rough toilet paper! Apart from these very minor concerns, this is a great place to stay in Boston and we would definitely stay here again.

Great location to the Copley T, Newbury St, and the Public Gardens. Very quiet at night. Charming. Shared bath was never an issue. Look forward to staying there again.

Room Tip: I enjoyed the Radcliffe room (for 1 with shared bath). Bath was located practically outside the doo...

This is a unique place to stay, far from the bland and homogeneous feel of a standard chain hotel. Each room is designed and furnished separately, and the whole building is peaceful and quiet. Breakfast was great - always available coffee and cookies a definite plus, and whilst I shared a bathroom down the hall with the other single room on the floor, I never had to wait for it or saw anyone else coming in and out. Staff very friendly and helpful - I left my charger in the room and someone was waiting for me when I came back to collect my suitcase with it.
