Ok… background… I am a tough critic of hotels. I started my career working at the famous Ritz-Carleton Boston when it was till family owned. So lets just say I have a critical eye… Friday night was cold and clear in Boston. Very Very cold. Given the recent massive amounts of snow I was concerned in finding a place to... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend at this historic and charming B&B. Perfect location - centrally located and we were able to walk to several great restaurants or take a short T-ride. Stephen and his staff are warm and personable and strive to ensure each guest has a memorable and special stay at the inn. The room was... More

We've stayed at the Inn twice within six months and each time was such a pleasure. It's in a great part of the city, close enough to walk to many good restaurants/bars/sight seeing. The owners and staff are extremely pleasant and helpful; we plan to go back again.

Beautiful boutique hotel! The room was very well appointed. The rooftop hot tub was amazing and provided great views of Boston! The location of the hotel was also wonderful. The staff were very warm and welcoming. I will definitely return!

I had hoped to have a weekend getaway with my partner to visit Boston. A friend recommended the Clarendon Square Inn as she has had many great experiences with the establishment. However, upon contacting the administration they were unable to accommodate my work schedule and host us for only one night. While this is understandable, i felt as though they... More

The continental breakfast should be more abundant considering the price of the room. We were not warned of charges for bottled water in the room. Paid $4 per bottle on check-out. Should have been complementary considering room price. We were on the fourth floor which was a pain. Hostess offered to carry bags. Hostesses were most friendly and accommodating. Felt... More

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

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

Staying at the Clarendon Square Inn and visiting Boston for the first time was nothing less than amazing! It's situated in a beautiful neighborhood known as the south end of Boston. 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
