I stayed at the Clarendon Square Inn for a few nights in October. The Inn is beautifully decorated and my room was large and well appointed. The only drawback was that scaffolding and workers were on a platform literally adjacent to the window next to my bed on the third floor at 7:30am each morning working away on a new... More

For 23 years my husband and I have stayed in small Inns for anniversary, We have been to Europe, Mexico, Canada and US destinations,we always look for a certain kind of atmosphere and feeling that a small Inn or boutique hotel provides, If you are that type of traveler than the Clarendon Square is definitely what you are looking for....

My wife and I visited the Clarendon at the end of October 2014. It set in a very pleasant neighbourhood, in a terrance of large early Victorian houses. At the time of our visit the houses on both sides were undergoing refurbishment, but we did not experience any disturbance. On arrival we were greeted by the very friendly Laura and... More

We were close of walking distance to restaurants, galleries, coffee and tea shops, bars and museums. Laura the manager for The Clarendon is extraordinary with her knowledge of the... More

I can't say enough about our experience staying here. We were greeted by Jasmina on our arrival to drop our bags off early. Being new to the city Jasmina went right through a map of the city in detail outlining where we should go and what was available. When we got back all our luggage had been taken up to... More

Wish all B&B's were like this. We had a very warm welcome from Laura on arrival, she couldn't have been more helpful. The B&B is in a lovely Brownstone building in the South End of Boston and stylishly decorated. Our room on the third floor was large and comfortable. If you get a chance use the hot tub on the...

Superb in every way! Quiet, elegant, stylish, well situated on a beautiful tree-lined street. Laura, the manager welcomed us like old friends although this was our first stay, warm, helpful and sincere. This place is a gem and we will most certainly return!

We were in town for two days. By chance we found the Clarendon. What a lucky find. Our stay was fantastic. A staff that was friendly and attentive. Our room was very comfortable. I wasn't in a hurry to leave but Boston was waiting to be explored. We'll be back.

I stayed at the Inn for only 2 nights since I was on a business trip, but I wish I could have stayed much longer. The place is beautiful, super clean, and walking distance to the Prudential Center and some of Boston´s best restaurants. "A" for location, service, historic building, and comfort.
