I had seen bad reviews on this hotel before we booked, but simply discounted them - you cant please everybody, right? So off we go! Our room overlooked the rooftop garden; seemed small. Ordinary in every way. We asked if might upgrade accommodations but that was not an option. (Now we have to wonder.) But, no matter, this was our... More

I come to Boston quite often to visit firends that live there and I always stay at the Ritz. The hotel is immaculate, the staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are amazing. The concierge, Caroline has been unbelievably helpful. She has even reccomended restaurants that my friends living there did not know about, as well as reservations. The... More

My recent stay at the Ritz was beyond exceptional! The room I stayed in was gorgeous, clean, spacious, and very comfortable. But beyond just the room, the Ritz always makes your stay a fantastic experience. The staff is so friendly and eager to take care of your every need. The concierge staff was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The food... More

I frequently visit Boston for business, and always choose to stay at the Ritz. The staff is super friendly and greet you upon entrance with water and apples. Tamara, at the front desk, always provides superior service with a friendly smile on her face. The concierge, Caroline, has always led me to the best restaurants in town. She has also... More

We have a roster of top notch hotels in Boston, but when it's all said and done, the Ritz-Carlton is the go-to hotel if you want to experience luxury in a hotel stay. And the Boston Common property (literally a half block from beautiful Boston Common) lives up to the standard of excellence you would expect. Not only is this... More

I came to Boston to visit my daughter and stayed at the Ritz. I was impressed from the moment I walked in the door. The staff was so friendly and really seemed concerned about me. My room was absolutely spotless and spacious. The location was perfect, right in the middle of everything. The bar in the lobby has a beautiful... More

Since our arrival, 'til the end of our stay, the staff has provided great service, and was really kind. The rooms were clean and spacious, and equipped with everything that was needed. The location is also excellent. Great Government&Military Rate is offered. Will come back if in the area!

I had a wonderful stay here mainly because they honored the Amex Fine Hotels program with gusto. I paid for a deluxe king and ended up in a luxury suite. The furnishings, space and view in that suite were all incredible. Tasteful, comfortable and luxurious from a terrific mattress to BVLGARI amenities in the bathroom. People complain about the lobby... More

We recently enjoyed an overnight stay at this hotel. I loved the location, as we could walk to Quincy Market and many shops and pubs in between. The room was beautiful. I especially loved the bathroom layout. It was spacious and had a TV speaker so I could listen to the Bruins game while I took a shower. The staff... More

I recently celebrated the international women's day with my significant other, by splurging and treating ourselves to a night at the Boston Common Ritz Carlton. When I called to make the reservation, the clerk carefully explained to me the difference between all of the rooms and recommended one with an awesome view of the city. The concierge recommended an outstanding... More
