It's always a special treat to stay at the Ritz. This one in the heart of Boston offers the same luxurious stay and impeccable service as the rest. All details are accounted for to make you feel like a VIP. The best restaurants and attractions are within walking distance.

A lovely hotel. I felt at home straight away with the personal and friendly welcome and nothing is too much to ask attitude. The bed was very comfortable. The room very clean. There were two sinks in the suite room. The only problems I had were relating to the fact that the two televisions didn't work so I had to... More

We love staying at the Ritz Carlton Boston Commons while visiting Boston. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The food quality and room quality is top drawer. Always. We have come to know several of the staff there and we always feel welcome and appreciated.

I decided to stay at the Ritz for a weekend after trying out a few hotels in the Boston area. I travel to Boston several times a year to visit my son who attends University in the area. I have to say that out of all the hotels I have stayed at, The Ritz Carlton is the best! Upon arrival... More

It's a nice hotel, very clean and modern. Beds are comfortable , only negative point is that only one sink in bathroom. Nice Lobby bar with fireplace, and bistro restaurant. Good location , front of Boston common park, and close to theater . Will come back.

A beautiful and serene atmosphere to return to after a day of city adventures. Everything we've come to expect of the Ritz and more! Our view of the park and the city was perfect. The restaurant was typical of the quality and customer care associated with Ritz Carlton. We will visit again.

A solid four-and-a-half star hotel, rounding up because they get the details right. Excellent location next to Boston Common, close to the start of the Freedom Trail. Great restaurants in the neighborhood (Stoddards, Dumpling Cafe). We had an Executive Suite with two kids, and the room was nice, if nothing special. Lots of little dings, fraying carpet and furniture show... More

It's a lovely hotel but I guess I am spoiled. Nothing really stood out to make it special. Though the bellman and front desk were very professional and friendly. The rooms were nice, small but nice. Nothing to make you say "Wow - I'm a the Ritz". I'd rather stay at the Hotel Commonwealth or The Elliott. I LOVE both... More

I have never stayed in a "bad" Ritz, but this is one of the best. Understated contemporary elegance underscores the theme of supportive comfort at every turn. The decor of the rooms is functional and excellent. The hotel staff exudes subtle comfort to the guests at every turn, ranging from greeting the guests by name, when appropriate, to responding to...
