The Eliot could be considered a "boutique" hotel. It is smallish, elegant but not snooty with a staff that is responsive and helpful. While they have standard rooms, they also have suites. We were "bumped up" to a suite when we confirmed our reservation. Our eighth floor suite had a bedroom with a very comfortable king sized bed and a... More

When traveling to Boston, forget the high-rise mega-hotels and stay at the Eliot, which feels more like a luxury 5th Avenue doorman/concierge apartment building than it does a hotel. Impeccable personal service and spacious, comfortable, well-appointed rooms make this boutique hotel in Boston's Back Bay the perfect place for a business trip, romantic weekend getaway, or, as was the case...

From the minute you walk in you know this is a different kind of hotel. The way hotels are supposed to be. Lovely but not generic. Traditional in every good sense of that word, while also being modern in the best senses of that word as well. Responsive and attentive while somehow always seeming genuine. If you want a hotel...

Located in the heart of Boston, the Eliot hotel is convenient ly located near Fenway, Newbury St. and other attractions. However when you walk through the front doors, the sounds of the city melt away. Last weekend, the lobby was decorated for the holidays in a subtle rustic fashion that juxtaposed with the elegant furnishings, worked nicely. The staff is... More

I always LOVE staying at the Eliot Hotel when I am in Boston! Without fail, the staff always welcome me back with a warm smile. when I walk into the lobby, it is as if I am walking into someone's grand home. The lobby is so warm and welcoming. The front desk staff are fantastic! They always welcome me back... More

We recently booked a suite at the Eliot with our two daughters (3 and 7). What a fantastic experience! The entire staff – from the Valet to check in staff to housekeeping – were excellent. Our suite was beautifully appointed (our girls thought they were staying in a castle!) and spacious. On top of that the location could not be... More

We went to Boston for one night and had booked at the Eliot. The rates were reasonable, our room spacious, clean, comfortable, and nicely appointed. We will definitely return. Good experience, great hotel!

Excellent hotel in an excellent location, just round the corner from Newbury street. The staff were friendly and made us feel welcome. Our room was fantastic as we were upgraded to a suite. Next time we visit Boston, this is where we will stay for sure.

For full disclosure purposes, this is a 4 star hotel. I am rating against other hotels in the same class. This is obviously a nicer hotel than a Marriott or the like, but for a hotel at this price point (>$350/night), I expected a little more, especially in the service department. Our party was 2 adults and 1 child (4... More

The Eliot Hotel provided the perfect foundation for a great night out in Boston's Back Bay. The hotel staff was very accommodating, and check in took less than a minute. The suite was very chic and spacious, with a nicely done modern bathroom. The hotel has the feel of a NYC boutique, but without the pretentiousness. Several other friends visited... More
