Reviewed 15 April 2012

The room wasn't huge, but I only needed a place to stay so it fit my purposes very well. It was also a lovely room and the inn is located in a charming little neighborhood. It's no more than a ten minute walk to Copley Square, nor more than five to Back Bay station, and it's very close to lots of restaurants and shopping without being right on the main drag. The staff was very friendly and there was the added benefit of free coffee at any time. The price was a bit high, but comparable or lower to any other place in the area, and I think this is one of the nicer places to spend your money if youre not looking for more than a home base while you explore Boston. I highly recommend it

We stayed here for our anniversary because it was so close to many of the bars and restaurants we wanted to go. The room was very clean and the view was great. I never saw anyone on my floor and we never heard anyone which made us feel like the only ones WHICH WE LOVED!! The ONLY drawback or negative was that the mattress was really hard/uncomfortable. Regradless though we would both stay here again.

We had a a great stay at the Chandler Inn. We were able to walk to so many great restaurants and other places we wanted to go. The staff was friendly and helpful. They provided us with a coupon for a nearby parking garage. The room was really clean, albeit small. Nice modern decor. The price was great. We could hear people on the street late at night because there is a busy bar on the corner. It didn't bother us much.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have lots of light, but may be louder.

Great stay!

Only negative side was the shower. Water pressured seemed a bit low so didn't come out of the shower head with much force. Also, water temperature was always either just lukewarm or somewhat cold...making for not a very soothing shower.

Other than that....awesome location, very clean, asthetically pleasing, the back pillows for sitting on the beds are awesome too!

A friend and I stayed here one night while attending a convention. It was by far the cheapest around and in an amazing location....a quick walk to Back Bay T stop, a quick taxi to anywhere, a quick walk to the theater district. Even though the price was low, the rooms were very modern and clean, with a nice updated bathroom. The staff was extremely helpful, especially when we had to cancel our 2nd night due to the blackout. They were extremely understanding of the late cancellation and didn't charge any hidden fees, which will definitely cause me to return again and again for a night in the city!

I'M SO GLAD I FOUND YOU ON TA!
I've been wanting to take my 13yo to Boston for years but hotel prices are always high. Then, I noticed the $99 special for the Chandler Inn on TA Boston Hotels. It seemed at first like an inconvenient location (most people stay downtown, near the water, in Back Bay or Copley Square) but using Google maps, I found that it's only 2 blocks from the Back Bay station and there's a bus stop right around the corner. Little did I know how lucky we were...
We arrived at 2pm and were warmly greeted by Gretchen Chauncey. I didn't realize that she was the General Manager. I noticed the TA certificate proudly displayed on the check-in counter and asked her if she would like a TA decal for the front window (she said, 'Yes, please!'). Although we were early, our room was ready for us and Gretchen noted that I had requested a higher floor (to avoid noise from the bar downstairs).
The room was a bit small but very clean, with a nice bathroom and comfy beds. For that price, I think it was a great deal.
As soon as we had dropped our bags, we headed out to Tremont Street for lunch. It's only 3-4 blocks away. What a great area for shopping and dining! Over the course of our 3-day visit, we ate at B&G Oyster Bar, Sibling Rivalry and the South End Buttery. It was so easy to walk to the restaurants and back. Having a 7-11 convenience around the corner was very nice too.
While we were in town, an electric company transformer caught on fire and caused a widespread blackout in Back Bay. We were riding the metro at the time when we heard the news. Exiting the Back Bay metro station, the streets were pitch black. Residents were standing out on the street, talking about the power outage and sharing flashlights. We didn't realize how serious it was at the time. We made our way towards the hotel in the dark, using the dim light from my iPhone.
Half a block away, like a beacon in the night (sorry for the cliche), Chandler Inn's lights were particularly bright! Lucky us -- the hotel was on a different electric grid and it had power. A whole 2 days later, I learned that the guests in the big and expensive Back Bay hotels had had to evacuate. No electricity and no hot water. I'm sure glad we were at the Chandler Inn. It felt like a home away from home. The front desk staff was always friendly and helpful, like family.

Room Tip: Ask in advance for a higher floor. There's a bar on the street level and it could get noisy on t...
