Stayed here with my boyfriend for the last two nights of our stay in Boston. Had great service from all members of staff, received complimentary passes for a nearby gym and discount on breakfast. The room was very clean, and although we were given a room with separate beds, they were so comfortable we decided to make the most of... More

I wish to thank this guest for taking the time to review her stay. I am delighted that our staff provided "great service" and that she could enjoy her space in our lovely rooms. It is true that the hotel does not have a fitness center on premises, a consequence of our limited space in such a historic building. Alternately,... More

This place is ideally located for Fenway and links around Boston in general are good- train station around the corner. The gym that they partner with is also close and very good. The rooms are old fashioned and lovely. But most importantly this hotel makes you feel welcome, all the staff were excellent. I would happily stay again

I checked into the Eliot for one night of pampering and left feeling refreshed. The hotel is so sweet--the room décor was beautiful and once my head hit the pillow, I fell into a deep sleep in the very comfortable bed. I had breakfast at Clio and it was outstanding. But what truly sets the Eliot apart is the staff.... More

Probably the best thing about the Eliot is its location. Just a block from the Hynes Convention T station, a couple of blocks to the Charles River, several blocks from Fenway, couple of streets over to Newbury. Very central location for many things that we want to see and do in Boston. We stayed at the Eliot over 4th of... More

Very good property. At checking Manoj was very helpful and warm. Welcome gift for children was pleasant surprise. Rooms are great. The back Bay Area has good options for lunch and dinner and lively till late. The hotel is 20-30 min walk to downtown.

Really lovely hotel full of charm. Wonderful friendly door staff. Beautiful architecture and super location away from the usual tourist traps. Stayed here as a family in August 2015 and this was just a fabulous little hotel with a large spacious room (we stayed in a junior suite). We loved it. Although traditionally styled, the decor is tasteful and classic.... More

The service at the Eliot is beyond 5 stars! The accommodations are beautiful and spacious. Marble bathrooms, thick fluffy towels, robes and soft sheets made our stay quite comfortable. Old world charm with the service most hotels used to have. Short walk to Fenway, Newbury and Boylston. Awesome weekend!!
