Choose this hotel for location as Newbury St is the hip street for wonderful shopping and restaurants and cafés .Downtown has large chain hotels,but to be fair the buzz on Newbury is much better at night than the centre of Boston.The Prudential Centre nearby has mall shopping and some good restaurants like Legal Seafood. The service in this hotel is... More

This guest house is right in the middle of Newbury Street, and conveniently, right in the middle of most tourist attractions (pleasant 20 min walk either way to Museum of Fine Arts or the park). Newbury Street is in itself adorable, and has tons of restaurants and shops. Really the only thing I was not impressed with is the smallness... More

Good location, was easy to get around. Unfortunately we were underwhelmed.The staff couldn't be bothered with greetings and we were ignored when asked where breakfast was served. The mattress and pillows were hard and uncomfortable, but for a city hotel the room was decent size. The bathroom was clean and well maintained. for the price we had hoped for a... More

Stayed here for the first three nights of our "Around the World" Honeymoon before setting off to New England. Great staff on reception who were more than happy to help when my Husband got sick. Great location for shopping, sightseeing and local restaurants. We ate at a little Mexican place around the corner which was delicious. Good facilities but not... More

My husband and I stayed at this Guest House for 3 nights. The room was not spacious, but it was comfortable and very lovely. The mattress was uncomfortably firm, and I woke up with a back ache. But the next day, all the mattresses in the entire Inn were replaced! So nights 2 and 3 were more comfortable. When we... More

This Newbury Street small hotel has all the characteristics we look for when coming to Boston - central location to the Back Bay and our son's family's small Commonwealth Street apartment, charm, cleanliness, friendly staff and a fabulous full breakfast. Having some parking spaces available at a small extra cost is also wonderful as parking affordably in this area is... More

Besides the cold weather in Boston in March this year, my days in this hotel were lovely. The staff was very helpful and our room spacious with nice beds and very nice view. The breakfast as really simple and with poor variety, but tasty. Probably I will stay there again next time on the city. The creperie that works at... More

We got to the hotel 3 hours before check in and they were able to have the room ready for us in about a 1/2 hour. While we waited they suggested we have something to eat at the small attached restaurant which worked out beautifully. The room was small but very comfortable and clean. We really loved the area which... More
