Hotel was great- room were large and quiet, beds were comfortable. Hotel location is great. Valet and check in desk were extremely helpful- I was in a rush to get to a meeting and they graciously and quickly checked my bags for me until I had time to come back later and check into my room. In room dining and... More

The Ritz in Boston met and exceeded my expectations. My room was well appointed, very clean, and really comfortable. Staff was helpful at every turn, and the lounge was a nice place to relax with some friends after a busy day of work. I also enjoyed the location, which for me, was right in the middle of things that I... More

First of all, I made a really major error, my bad, totally. I THOUGHT the RC was still located on the Boston Gardens, alas, the TAJ is there now, and that is where I wanted to be. The lobby is stunning and the check in was warm and inviting. Maybe all would be ok even if I was in the... More

Like it was during our last visit, it is slightly difficult to get to the entrance of the hotel due to all of the one way streets and do not enter signs. The valet promptly came over and unloaded all of our luggage, all though he did take his time in doing so. Just after that, we proceeded to check-in.... More

I was accompanying my husband on a business trip, so I took advantage of the nice things, like breakfast in bed and the nearby art venues. Everything was perfect and made me fall in love again with Boston (and who doesn't appreciate a white-gloved elevator attendant?).

From my pre-arrival correspondance to my actual arrival, the staff at the RC Boston made for a wonderful trip. Its location is perfect for leisure and business, right in the middle of the City, a stroll away from the Freedom Trail, shopping and commercial sectors as well as right opposite the common. All the staff I encountered were polite, welcoming... More

I booked a deluxe room at the Ritz for my daughter's 16th birthday present. We were both very impressed with the hotel and front desk service. The room was exactly as advertised. Later after check in, one of the front desk ladies came to out room to deliver a special treat (cupcake and chocolates) for my daughter. The next day... More

My family of 5 spent three nights at the hotel. From the doormen, to the front desk staff, to the concierge, to the housekeeping, all were truly exceptional. The location, newer rooms and bedding are A+. The club level offerings and staff make it the ultimate Boston hotel!

Pouring rain as I arrived with my wife and daughter and watched the doorman talk to a driver in a lemo. As our luggage got wetter, I not only had to unload our cab, but open the door for us as well. The conciergie greeted us and apologized for our troubles. In our stay we were never greated by name... More

I was at the Ritz in Boston for the past 5 nights for vacation. It is unique in that they only occupy 4 floors in a Ritz Carlton residence building. There is a full LA Sports Club one can use, and it is right across from the Commons, very well located. The Club floor service is amazing, and they cannot... More
