I was given late notice for a business trip to Boston and found availability near the convention hotel limited. I decided to book the Eliot because it looked like a good value for the quality of accommodation. It will absolutely be my first choice whenever I'm back in Boston. The rooms are elegant with a suite layout--such a nice change... More

The Eliot hotel was awesome!! We were visiting our daughter and the Eliot provided comfort, convenience and charm. We loved everything about it and it will definitely be our go to hotel for as long as our daughter lives in Boston. I highly recommend it!

We enjoyed this smaller property for, paradoxically, its larger suite rooms, and proximity to the Harvard Club of Boston where we had a later dinner event. It will be back in really top form when the restaurant renovations are complete. Guests in the Back Bay don't have far to look, though, for plenty of quality dining choices in the meantime.... More

Weekend getaway. Everyone from the valet, front desk, doorman was friendly welcoming and helpful. Location is very walkable to all of Back Bay and you are steps from the T. Right over the bridge from MIT.

My husband and I were delighted with the elegant "old world" ambience of the hotel. It reminded us of the best hotels we've stayed at in Europe. This classic style was leavened by a touch of contemporary flair....most obvious in the attached bar and restaurant, Uni. The restaurant, with its incredible, inventive Japanese cuisine is deserving of its own separate... More

Just left and could not have been better. The staff is wonderful from the valet/doorman to the front desk and housekeeping. We had a couple of rooms and without asking they put us in connecting rooms. The rooms for a city hotel are quite large and nicely decorated especially if you like a more traditional style of decor. I was... More

This was our second time staying at the Eliot hotel and it just keeps getting better. It is an all suite hotel which is hard to find in Boston. Location is close to shopping and dining on Newbury street but still quiet in a neighborhood setting. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Suites are large, clean and quiet. We... More

We decided to stay in Boston at the last minute due to an early flight. I have stayed at The Eliot a few years ago. So we decided to chose this hotel.

Great location just a block from Newbury St. We stayed in a one bedroom suite. The living area and bedroom were beautifully appointed and spacious. The bathroom had great finishes but was very small. The size of the bathroom was really the only negative of this hotel. Otherwise, excellent service, friendly staff, immaculate room. The beds were incredibly comfortable and... More

We have never stayed at the Eliot Hotel before this visit but have eaten at the French restaurant Clio on it's property several times before it closed recently.

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighborhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
