5 friends and I stayed at 113 Beacon St, Apt 6front. First off, it was in a great section of Boston. Mostly walking distance to all locations. About 10-15 minute walk to Fanuiel Hall, little longer to the Fenway area. All very nice brownstones on the street with free parking after 6pm Friday. (big plus) For the location as well... More

Beautiful brownstone, great location, decent size. Beds were very comfy. Living room was incredibly cramped when the blow up mattress tried to be inflated. At check in the furniture was in disarray but management sent someone to fix it and also gave us our one bedroom apt a night early as there was no pull out couch as promised. Everything... More

I stayed with family friends for the weekend and it was wonderful. Modern appliances and tons of beautiful lighting. It's right near the Boston Commons and all of the shops right along there and the building itself is lovely inside and out. Though I admit it was a little hard to maneuver the baby carriage up and down the stairs... More

If you're a bit of a princess then this probably isn't for you, but if you want to stay in a location that's great for all Boston has to offer and you don't want to pay a fortune then it's certainly worth considering. I would have been happier without the banging from renovation in an adjacent apartment that started at... More

This is a 3 BR, 2 BA condo my friends and I rented for 7 nights for about $3200. The location is great. It might've rated four or five BUT... When we arrived, the AC wasn't working and it was 84 degrees in the condo with no window that opens. Stifling. I called Ferne, the InnBostonReservations property manager, and the... More

Very conveniently located to Copley Square, Freedom Trail and Boylston Street. Food at the two restaurants was very good, the breakfasts were outstanding. I stayed in two queen room, ample space and great nights sleep. Within walking distance to sights, dining, and historic attractions.

Just stayed at the penthouse this past weekend and it was amazing! The views, the rooms and the kitchen and bar area stocked with dishes and glassware. The bathrooms are gorgeous and super updated. Honestly though, my favorite part about this building is the elevator and access to the roof. I had a few other friends staying with me and... More

Very clean and excellent location in my favorite neighborhood. The only thing that was wrong was that the washer was broken- it didn't agitate and our clothes didn't get clean. We had to schlep it down to the Beacon street laundromat twice. Other than that- great layout and perfect for a family of four. We will be back!

You really can't beat this location, within a block of the Public Garden and very near Copley Square, the Freedom Trail and the T. We were in Unit 5F, which had clearly been renovated since some of the reviews for it last year. This is not a huge unit, but has two distinct bedrooms and some good living space. It's... More
