This property is absolutely gorgeous and centrally located to any place you would want to go in Boston. From the time we walked in the door at 1AM Friday to our checkout time at 6AM Sunday, the staff was generous, welcoming and made sure that our short stay was absolutely wonderful. They made sure we had directions to where we... More

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times now Staff has been exceptional each time The gym associated with this hotel is over the top for a hotel gym and worth staying here alone if you like a good spot to workout Have been here when lobby bar was quiet and lobby bar was busy Not sure why a review...

I got married at the Ritz-Carlton Boston Common, and the experience was unbelievable. The staff (like most Ritz-Carlton Hotels) was exceptional, and went above and beyond. One of my guests forgot his shirt to wear under his suit. It was a holiday so he tried to go out and buy one but everything was closed. They called the concierge, and... More

Traveling to Boston for a "Meet The Parents" weekend, my husband and I chose to stay in The Ritz Carton. We have stayed in Toronto, Bali and New York's Ritz Carlton locations and felt they met or exceeded our expections, but the Boston Ritz Carlton was a disappointment. The lobby bar was noisy, overcrowded and turned into a club atmosphere... More

I agree with another review that states that this Ritz is mediocre. We like to use the club floor when we stay at Ritz Hotels. The food at this Club had no flair and was disappointing. The servers, Ty and Richard, were quite good. I thought the rooms and furniture were worn. The HVAC system was very noisy. The gym... More

I have stayed at a lot of Ritz hotels all over the world. And I would rank this one in the bottom half. There is nothing distinctive about it. The rooms are forgettable. The bar is empty and sterile. The lobby lacks charm. The employees are great as always. But this facility lacks anything interesting to make it worth your... More

This is a new Ritz in Boston at a new location, 1/2 a block from the Common. We have stayed at a lot of Ritz Carlton's in various cities. This one is a really good facility and a good location. As usual and expected, the Ritz staff is great. The reason we stay at so many Ritz's is the way... More

Every person with whom I came into contact at the Ritz provided outstanding service at this beautiful property. During every interaction with the folks at the Ritz, they were warm, accommodating and thoughtful--right down to handing me a lovely cup of coffee in a "to-go" cup on my way out the door to start my business day! I can't say... More

The Ritz beds are amazing. I've slept in Heavenly Beds, Marriott Sweet Sleeper and many other chain hotels' updated beds, but nothing compares with the Ritz beds. This hotel's central location, yet off the heavy traffic streets, is good for anything you want to do in Boston. Walking distance to theatres, shopping, Boston Common, the State House, great restaurants, Chinatown,... More

This was our first time at this property and we loved it. We have tried every other luxury brand in town, from the mandarin to 15 beacon, and this is the finest. From the amazing doormen especially Danny who remembered our name and always made us feel special, to the great staff in the club lounge. I highly recommend the... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
