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

We had the pleasure of staying at the Ritz while attending a conference recently. We have stayed at the original Ritz location years ago which was across from the Public Garden. The new location is on a dingy side street at the edge of an area that was slated for redevelopment, but delayed due to the downturn in the economy.... More

We spent 6 nights here while our son was taking a summer course at Harvard. We were in a Club Level room that gave us access to the club lounge which serves complimentary food and drinks throughout the day. The club was well stocked with food and drinks, and the staff incredibly attentive. The room was a bit smaller than... More

This is probably the worst Ritz I've ever stayed at. From my experience, the smiles from the doorman is the first thing you see when you first arrive. No doorman (no doorman during the 7 or 8 times I came and went either). Perhaps it's too cold for them to be out but isn't that's part of the job? The... More

We spent 5 nights here and loved it! We stayed in a Club Level Room and the view of the Boston Commons was stunning! The room is slightly outdated and needs some color as everything is a light yellow or blue and very bleh. The bathroom also only has one sink and not a double sink which is unusual for... More

I just spent an evening at the Ritz Carlton to celebrate a friends 40th birthday. I book the Ritz because I know that there is an added level of service and detail. This trip was no exception to the Ritz’ fine reputation. Front Desk / Concierge We were greeted immediately, and contrary to another comment on this site, the team... More

Stayed 2 nights at this facility for business. Everything about the experience was good. Just getting out of the hectic traffic and into a serene environment helps. Rooms were nice and clean/ food was great each day (lobster rolls) as was room service. You get what you pay for. The staff was very friendly and it was just what you... More
