we rented a 3 bedroom/2 bath unit at 113 Beacon St. The location is great BUT, 2 of the beds consisted of mattresses laid on a raised floor. Our husbands could not even stand up! The bathrooms were in poor shape and in dire need of renovation. Much of the furniture was tired and worn. The ac window unit was... More

My husband and I stayed in a lovely furnished apartment in the heart of Boston. The location was perfect - just off the Boston Commons with easy access to the T, shopping, restaurants, and entertainment - and the accommodations were perfect - furnished one bedroom apartment with a full kitchen, TV and cable, 20 foot ceilings, and great security. I... More

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.
