When in our new and rapidly evolving Boston, the ritz is a spectacular choice. This is a favorite among sports and entertainment individuals, and rightly so.The location is perfect, sandwiched between chinatown and Boston common. With very little walking required, one can stay at the ritz and find adventuresome dining as well as theater within close proximity. The staff is... More

A few pros: the club lounge staff was as fantastic as always, and the access to the gym is very nice. The rooms are perfectly fine as well, and I like the fireplace in the new bar. And a con: I completely agree with reviews below about the bell staff. They are fantastic at every other Ritz or Four Seasons... More

I have spent a total of 26 nights at the Ritz over a period of 6 months and am consistently impressed by the quality of service provided by all of their staff. All the rooms I stayed in were very comfortable and had spacious bathrooms with a separate bath and shower. I was upgraded a couple of times towards the... More

While this isn't the best Ritz Carlton worldwide, the staff and the location make up for it. It is conveniently close to restaurants, bars and Boston Common. Room itself was clean and had a great view. It was pouring rain when we stayed and the doorman made every attempt to keep us dry as we came and went in taxis.... More

Comfortable room with a view of the Common. Perfect location for sightseeing - just across from the Common and walking distance from Newbury Street and pretty much anything you'd like to see in downtown Boston. Staff is friendly and efficient.

We have stayed at RC all over the world but RC Boston is the worest hotel we have stayed in ever. When we first pulled in at the door, the bell man just stood there instead of opening the door. Then as we proceeded to the lobby is was quite disorganized and we couldn't locket the person at the front... More

Had a great stay with my wife and son and joined by our daughter prior to moving to a rental property on Cape Cod. Good size, clean and comfortable room. Staff were very friendly and attentive in particular Ryan Pavao the Concierge who went out of his way to book us into local restraints at short notice. Good breakfasts !

Since my last review of the Ritz Boston ("Nice, but a shadow of the original"), things have improved a bit when it comes to the basics--I found that the beds were more comfortable (pillow tops?), everything in the room worked quite well, such as the plumbing, air conditioning, internet, and so forth. There is a new lighting switch set-up that... More

There is a no glitz Ritz. Very simple, contemporary and elegant. We stayed at the hotel right after the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend, so it was quiet. We chose to self park because we would not be using our car during our stay. The parking was very convenient and elevator lobby only steps away from the entrance to the Ritz. I... More
