I stayed here for a week in April 2014 while on a business trip, which I extended a couple of days for pleasure. The hotel is located in a nice part of town, just a stone's throw from the MIT campus in Cambridge (across the bridge) and within a short walk to Boylston Street where there are a lot of... More

We recently spent two nights at the Eliot on our first visit to Boston. The Back Bay location is very convenient to many of the amenities of this wonderful city. Located on Commonwealth Avenue, it is an easy walk to dining and shopping and being on the same street as some of the most amazing residential architecture in the city... More

Everyone we encountered was friendly and welcoming, from the doorman to the housekeeping people. We got a yummy delivery of home-baked cookies, which was a perfect afternoon treat after taking an overnight flight. We arrived at 8am and our room wasn't ready (we didn't expect it to be at that hour) but they rushed to get a room ready for... More

The Eliot is a lovely old hotel with all the modern amenities, in the central area of Boston, with a well deserved reputation for service and customer satisfaction. We were made very welcome on arrival and the valet parking is a great boon in a busy city centre hotel. The reception manager who greeted us - Soyoon Joo - was... More

Upon our arrival, the staff was extremely helpful and attentive. The hotel itself has an old-world charm and feels as it is in a world of the 1920's. Unfortunately the hotel was very run down and dirty in the actual room. It turned out to be a further walk from downtown and tourist sites than we had imagined-but that was... More

I wish to thank this guest for taking the time to share their experience of our hotel. While we are committed to providing superlative accommodations and service, it appears we were unsuccessful in this case. It is perplexing, however, that the guest would state the room was run down and dirty as the entire hotel has been completely renovated and... More

Staff is very helpful, smiling and friendly. Location is fantastic. You are very close to shopping centers and also Boston University. The room was very clean and beyond our expectations. I would recommend this hotel strongly if you would like to have a very pleasant stay 😃

The service is excellent in this elegant hotel. The doorman gives a feel of sophistication and welcome. However, it is awkward to call room service for everything, including ice. We had to ask for glassware for the bathroom as well. The location is fabulous- close to Newbury Street and the Prudential Center for shopping.

Although the front of the Eliot is being renovated, it did not disrupt my recent overnight stay. The room was clean, comfortable and stylish. The staff were hospitable and helpful. And dinner at Clio was as great as ever. Wonderful servers, Catherine and Nathaniel.

We loved our stay at the Elliot. There were 5 of us with three 6 foot boy teenagers. We are too big for most hotel rooms, but the Elliot 2 BR suite was the perfect fit. Plenty of room for all. What a wonderful location. Just east of Kenmore square. The hotel was just steps to shopping and dining on... More

The location is excellent, the suites are perfect to have a small business meeting or to just relax, the service is always spot-on and the Eliot houses my favorite restaurant in Boston ... Clio. This is a must stay hotel.
