“A great value”

I always stay at the Chandler Inn when coming to Boston. I used to live in the South End and love the location. The rooms are very modern and clean. The staff are very friendly.

Room Tip: Higher the better and the lower number rooms are quieter. The corner room #8 on each floor has the b...

This is the second time I've stayed at the Chandler Inn. Both times it has been extremely enjoyable. The reception staff are some of the friendliest and best I have had the pleasure of meeting in my many years of travelling. While the Chandler Inn doesn't serve breakfast, there are many excellent options within a short walk of the hotel, including my favourite, Charlie's Sandwich Shoppe.

My only minor gripe is with the layout of the rooms. In order to fit the bed in, there is no space for a proper desk, so if you need somewhere to sit and work at a laptop (as I did) it can get uncomfortable.

We chose this hotel largely based on the reviews and because it was in close proximity to the Back Bay station. It was a terrific area and, as other reviews state, very close to all the city center activity. The hotel and surrounding area were very quiet and there was a decent selection of restaurants. We had a boutique room and it was nicely decorated, very clean and comfy. The bathroom was very small however, and while this was not an issue for me, my husband was quite displeased with this aspect of the place. Breakfast isn't included but there's a great cafe 2 doors down. For anyone traveling on Amtrak, it's a particulary good choice since the station is only a 5 minute walk.

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.
