First positive comment: we asked beforehand if it would be possible to make an early check-in, and although they couldn't give us the room at the exact same time of our arrival, they did allowed us in earlier. Our room was beautiful, spacious, clean (coffee maker and all). The only thing I would change would be to install a light... More

Beautiful hotel, excellent location! Little things were off like the TV and Radio were not plugged in and it was a hassle to move furniture around to plug stuff in. No bottled water in room or coffee maker- for the price I was surprised by this! No refrigerator in room, too bad! And the bathroom while lovely, did not allow... More

This was the second year in a row that my family and I stayed at the Eliot to catch a Red Sox game at Fenway. We love it! The rooms are very spacious, clean and neatly appoited. The staff is courteous, friendly and very helpful. We recognize many of the faces from last year so I believe this says a... More

Rooms are tiny if you are not in a suite and fairly run down. Air conditioning didn't work and when we told the front desk the response was that you should not put it to the lowest temperature setting because hot air will come out....not sure how that could be the case. A high end hotel would have apologized and... More

The hotel’s 16 Deluxe Guest rooms average 275sf in size. The entire hotel is renovated and all rooms completely redecorated less than 18 months ago. I do apologize for the mechanical failure... More

The Eliot is a jewel in the city of Boston. Well located for walking to museums, Fenway and restaurants; gracious and friendly staffed; quiet, large and elegant suites. We loved our stay at The Eliot.

Right at the intersection of Commonwealth and Massachusetts. Great location to the ball park, dining (Boylston and Newbury), touring, Hop On, Hop Off, great walking distance to everything. We loved the Hotel as it is next to Harvard Club (and they were filming Whitey Bulger story while we were next door)! We got a corner suite and it was cozy... More

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.
