the hotel still uses the heavy key on a brass key-chain and they still have the hotel check-in with the boxes that hold the keys just like an old luxury hotel in London or from the movies! Loved that my kids could see what hotels were like way back when. From the doorman to the front desk folks to the... More

This hotel was located in the "Back Bay" area, perfect walking distance to shops, restaurants, parks, 1-1/2 blocks from Fenway, really a great location. I'd rather stay here then downtown near the Harbor.

We live in the Boston suburbs, and stayed at the Eliot to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It is located on the corner of Commonwealth Ave and Mass Ave in Boston - just a 10 minute walk to Fenway Park (we went to a Sox game). Pros: Absolutely gorgeous room! The room was a suite, with very classic decor, and everything... More

We have been coming here for years with our Great Dane. This is the first time we have been here without the dog. Very spacious rooms, Great location( Back Bay). Great service. One block walk to the "T" and a 5 minute walk to the Charles River which is a great location to run or walk. If you drive here... More

This was our third stay at The Eliot and it was such a joy to be recognised by staff upon our arrival. We would not consider another hotel when visiting Boston - The Eliot offers everything and more that a traveller could want. We were upgraded to a small suite which was a lovely touch and as always, very comfortable... More

Comfortable beds. Quality linen and towels. Good complimentary wi-fi. We did miss a coffee machine in the room though.  Service - exceptional at every level. Front desk, bell... More

This was our second time staying at the Eliot Hotel, and not only are the rooms spacious and comfortable, the STAFF is second to none! Top-notch service! They go way out of their way to help. For example, when we arrived by car, Manuel came running up and insisted that I not get out until he brought me an umbrella.... More

I travel a lot for work and stay at many hotels so when I go away with my family I really look for something of high quality and family friendly. This hotel is rated number 2 for families and the Four Seasons is number 1. I chose this hotel based on a recommendation by a friend with pretty high standards.... More
