We recently stayed at the Ritz Carlton Boston Common during the 'Boston Marathon Weekend.' It was an incredible experience and we had a fantastic time, In short, I think this hotel has the best staff of any luxury property full stop. To level set the property: rooms and interior are nice. Not amazing, but exactly what you would expect from... More

I recently stayed at this hotel again and had another great stay. The staff is among the best in the Ritz system. The lounge is great with top quality offerings and a helpful team. My room was very good.

Not the best ritz, or lounge. Hotel is in a good location, staf are generally nice, except to a lady that worked in the lounge who gave me a constant feeling that we are being watched by her ( my 6 years old took off her shoes and I guess it's not allowed there, but still there are ways to...

Visited the Boston area for a wedding and spent one day in Boston sightseeing. Hotel is centrally located. The weather was horrible - cold and snowing. The rooms were very nice and the staff were professional, friendly and helpful. Overall, a very nice hotel (as to be expected).

I stayed here with my kids and it was nothing for them to do. They couldn't use the pool because kids under 18 we're not allowed in the health club. We were offered to use the Hyatt pool as an alternative which was a 5 minute walk. Definetly do not recommend bringing any small children here, there's nothing for them... More

I was hesitant when booking this hotel based off of the bad reviews I had read, but they are all disregarded now. After staying here myself, I found that the staff was very friendly and more than willing to cater to any needs I had. They assisted with bags, handed me a hot chocolate and checked me in- all in...

Great room overlooking the Commons, quiet, well thought-out. Push the elevator button and you'll find yourself in a 100,000 sq ft Equinox fitness club, with pool. It's a favorite with visiting professional sports teams -- for a reason. Next, go to the IMAX movie theater with multiple screens...it's in the SAME building. Raid the mini-bar (or try the restaurant downstairs... More

This hotel deserves strong consideration if looking for a 5 star hotel depending on price because it is not perfect. Th staff is very energetic, nice, and helpful. The suite was large, well furnished and functional. The bar was pleasantly busy. The location is hard to beat. Concierge floor area and food presentations were splendid. The negatives include not enough... More
