We stayed this past weekend and overall everything was good. The staff was very helpful and the gym is amazing. The room was very clean which is most important! They seem to push the hotel restaurant quite a bit which got a bit annoying considering the menu is a bit limiting. Also they have free coffee and hot cider downstairs... More

I had a quick overnight at this location and loved every minute of it! Check-in was quick, efficient, and personal. The room was spotless and bright--view was of the lovely roof garden. The room was well appointed with the standard Ritz amenities and fixtures. We had a remarkable experience in the Club Lounge. Rachel was the sweetest-big props to whoever... More

I stayed here with my wife over the holiday weekend. We reserved a typical room using points. On arriving at the hotel, we had the service you would expect from a Ritz Carlton. Check in was easy, and after mentioning we were celebrating our anniversary they upgraded us to a room with a view of the park. We spoke to... More

We stayed at this hotel off and on for several weeks due to a family illness, and ultimately her passing. It was a busy time for the hotel and they accommodated all of our various rooms and dates for our family. They truly made a very difficult time easier with their outstanding staff and their dedication to their guests. Although... More

I am a huge Ritz Fan, reward member, etc. The room was average to below average as compared to other Ritz Carlton hotels I have visited (Laguna Niguel, Orlando, Chicago, Beaver Creek) and could go on. Very disappointed in the hotel in terms of ambiance. Everyone has been super nice, but for 800+ per night could get that elsewhere and... More

Sometimes you just have a bad trip. You don't plan on it and it really isn't anyones fault, but the stars align against you and what should have been comfort, pleasure and no worries just isn't. I love the Ritz. It is my favorite hotel chain. I have been to this Ritz on several occasions. This time it just didn't... More

This hotel is in a great location....right off Boston Common so downtown and Boylston and Newbury Sts. Staff are friendly without being in your face or overboard. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms are very spacious. Overall hotel is well maintained and worth a visit if you can.

Great location just off Boston Common and gorgeous lobby and bar area. We had a lovely suite (view, not so much...) which was well appointed, as one would expect. Bed was super comfortable. The service at this particular Ritz-Carlton was exceptional, and this is what makes a place truly luxurious (because it is so rare nowadays!). From the minute we... More

I stayed at the Ritz for two nights on business. The room was very spacious, the bed was heavenly, and the service impeccable. Staying on the club level was awesome; I really enjoyed the various food and beverage options they had throughout the day. Coming back from a long day at the office, it was great knowing there was a... More

This a well kept, nice hotel, very clean. Excellent service. Very accomodating and helpful with our five year old. Good location - close to Boston Common, Public Gardens, and subway station. Easy walk even for a 5 year old to the subway. About a half a mile walk to Fanuel Hall.
