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

Wonderful suggestions for dinner and getting round town. We loved... 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.

We stood overnight in Boston as well as Downtown and South End. We prefered South End. More quiet, a lot of nice restaurants and pubs around the corner. The Claredon Square Inn is not a cheap accomondation, in comparison to some 4star hotels in Boston it is even quite more expensive. The expectations were high. The Inn itself was beautiful... More

We stayed four nights and could not have been more pleased with every aspect of visit at Clarendon Square Inn. Regardless what one of the posting indicated about the staff being rude. They could not have been more gracious on open to serve our needs. Will book again with our next visit to Boston. GMC - Ohio

Paid nearly $400... Was told to go "up the stairs" to the room with my name on the door. ...and 5 flights of stairs later, I found my room. I am still out of breath, shlepping my luggage all the way up! Yes, it is beautiful, yes it is nicely appointed... But would I haul my luggage up 5 floors... More
