I am reluctant to write a glowing review of Clarendon Square even though it more than deserves it. Inevitably it makes these places harder to book, sometimes more expensive, however… in all good conscience this place deserves every bit of praise. It has been around for a decade and a half and shows every sign of continuing indefinitely, thank goodness.... More

I have no idea how my husband found this place, it is so well hidden, you won't see it from the street. people use to say that BB are boring, not this one! it is so unique and stylish, like your wealthy uncle's house. i loved breakfast that was included in the price, delicious with fresh fruits and good coffee....

I went to Boston for 5 days. The first 3 nights we spent at the W Boston. The last 2 nights I stayed here at the Clarendon Square Inn. I can honestly say I wish we had stayed here all 5 nights. It's very comfortable, it's designed beautifully, the staff and owners are very attentive and helpful AND the big... More

We wish to pass on a MASSIVE thank you for letting us have the pleasure of staying at Clarendon for our short break to Boston. We were in the Luxury Suite on the 2nd floor - and what a great room it is too!! Our room was perfect - sadly with the weather being VERY COLD (minus 10c) so we... More

Sometimes you plan a trip away and everything just falls into place beautifully. Thanks to the Clarendon Square Inn, our overnight getaway, sans kids for a change, to Boston was one of those experiences. After a short walk from the commuter rail, we found Clarendon nestled on a side street in back Bay. As soon as we walked in, we... More

We booked one night for a winter getaway. Tara, the manager, welcomed us warmly and provided all necessary information. Our deluxe Queen room on the third floor was immense, featuring gleaming mahogany woodwork and handsome furnishings. It included a nice sitting area and desk. The luxurious bathroom had a soaking tub, his and her sinks and large shower with two... More

This was our second experience at the Clarendon Inn. We stayed for five nights beginning December 12th. Our room was outstanding, on the ground floor - quite roomy and quiet. We will definitely request this room again. We like the Clarendon because of its location - blocks from the South End - our old neighborhood and also quick walking distance... More

We arrived at this wonderful B&B in the late evening (11:30pm) and let ourselves in as per the instructions we received via email for late night arrival. If you’re a bit taller, make sure to duck down a bit when entering the door (I hit my head twice as apparently I’m a slow learner haha...I nicknamed it the Hobbit door).... More

When you travel a lot you get tired of the same chain hotels - no matter how big and fancy they are. That is yet another reason why I try to stay at the Clarendon Square Inn whenever I am in Boston. The inn nestled on a beautiful quiet side street in Boston, has its own mix of contemporary and... More
