One starts to relax the moment you enter The Gilded Lily threshold. The grand staircase invites you right up to the well appointed rooms. Beautiful, large windows allow natural light to fill the space and offer a delightful view to the neighborhood below. This fully restored B&B has thought of everything one could desire while away from home. It is... More

I stayed two nights and was very happy. My girlfriends and I occupied four rooms and we had everything we needed. Fabulous, quiet location, short walks to museums, shopping and chic restaurants, we didn't need to use a car or taxi for anything we wanted to do. Our B&B owner host, Jim, could not have been more hospitable, we all... More

You'll feel pampered at this B&B even though they don't serve you breakfast, since it's self-serve continental breakfast in a kitchenette room right off the bedrooms. The place has been lovingly restored to it's former beautiful state with much attention to detail. The rooms have a "grand old world" feel but they are up to date in comfort. Bed was... More

We stayed here 3 days during our Christmas break. James was a great host! The room was beautiful and the bed was very comfortable. It's a great location- just a 5 minute walk to the the T and bus lines and an easy walk to Boylston St. We'll be back!

Within walking distance of Symphony Hall, Newbury St and plenty of good restaurants. Big perk is having the availability of a parking spot but make sure you reserve it as there is on only 1 but 4 rooms - not difficult math.

Stayed here 2 nights and had a great time. The room was spacious and well decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with good quality food. The B&B is central and most points of interest are at walkable distance. Highly recommended.

Just a very short one night stopover here - instructions etc clear and informative. Room well furnished and super modern toilet/shower facilities. Shared, well stocked kitchen. James, the innkeeper was very helpful when we had to contact him. Location of B&B is excellent with lots to do and see within walking distance. I would give this five stars except that... More

We stayed here two nights- a family of 3 while in US on long term business and short-stay holiday combination. I would actually also recommend this hotel to single woman travelling to Boston alone. It is safe and sound and very convenient and quiet.

Stayed here 3 nights October, James has restored the building’s many original features beautifully. The Palor room was superb. The shared kitchen was well stocked, love the cakes! A reasonable walk to the City or Copley Sq. through pedestrian walk way. Bar on corner, 5 Horses was great for a beer or food. Some good restaurants within walking distance. Definitely... More
