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

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

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

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...
