Arriving on a snowy evening after a long 10-hour drive, my teenaged daughter and I entered the inn and felt immediately relaxed and comfortable. Our room was beautiful, although having to walk up a few flights of curvy stairs was a little tiring. Parking is tight, and we had to park at a public lot several blocks away ($77 for... More

Clarendon Residences are located in the same building as Hotel 140 and also managed by the same front desk. My tiny room was located on the 9th floor. It was equipped very poor and not really comfortable, yet it was okay. A fridge and a microwave served as 'kitchen'. The room was quite noisy, if neighbors made phone calls you... More

We had a second visit the other week and enjoyed our stay just as much as the first time. The rooms are simply wonderful -- cozy and comfortable. And the breakfast is consistently excellent with options to suit most everyone--I favor the homemade oatmeal and fresh fruit. We were celebrating birthdays and invited our son and two others back to... More

My husband and I arrived on one of the coldest days in Boston. Steven, the innkeeper, graciously took care of our luggage, and offered hot beverages, while we warmed our stocking clad feet on heated floors. Yes, we removed our gritty wet boots! After chatting, while thawing our bodies, we arrived in a beautifully appointed room with a spacious seating... More

Beautiful rooms and congenial hosts in Boston's south side. Enjoy the bespoke experience - architecture, decor, fabrics, rooftop terrace and quiet - in this lovely neighbourhood. I want to start planning my return before I've left. Such a lucky find!

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

We are pleased to hear that your friends enjoyed their stays at Clarendon Square and recommended us to you. There is no better compliment. Alas, we are sorry to hear that our room availability on this occasion did not match your needs. One of the many charms of Clarendon Square is its small size and intimate environment. We enjoy spending... More
