The facility was excellent. Mitch your substitute innkeeper did a good job informing us of how and where to go during our stay. We would strongly encourage anyone to pay you a visit. Touches such as fine bed linen, fresh fruit, and a choice of breakfast (make your own) we're appreciated.

Back at The Gilded Lily and I guess this should be no surprise, but it was incredible again. This is not your grandmother's B&B. Clean, modern touches, but still makes you feel "home". James is incredible at communicating and accommodating. I was in the Parlor Room this time and was very impressed with the design touches, spacial feeling, and cleanliness.... More

We walked the whole freedom trail from here. Super alternative to the hotels in the area. Beautiful room,The parlour. Mitch, our host, was a plethora of information on Boston's history. Just a couple of block's from the reflecting pool.

Beautifully equipped and furnished B&B within a pleasant walk of two metro stations on two different lines. Within easy walking distance of Boylston Street. Quiet location; bed extremely comfortable. It is nice to stay someone off the tourist trail. Having access to a small kitchen with fridge, kettle etc is wonderful after a day sightseeing.

The location was within walking distance of Copley Square and Northeastern University in a very safe neighborhood with a beautiful walking path nearby. The rooms, fixtures and amenities were top notch. Exceptionally clean rooms and fully stocked pantry. Everything was just as expected and more. A nice home away from home. Will stay there every time we visit Boston. Be... More

What a find in a fantastic location. When staying here you sink into Boston culture. For a business traveler, as I am - it is almost perfect. The only challenge is that I had to pay a night when I didn't stay because of a health issue and moving of dates. Such a rare problem! James accommodated my date move... More

The kitchen is well equipped... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Gilded Lily the weekend of his graduation. We go to school in Boston but we wanted to do something a little more special, especially since I was abroad for a semester and I hadn't seen him in months. I'm so glad that I came across the Gilded Lily. First of all James Cullion,... More
