In a good location, friendly staff, and nice rooms. Rooms were very clean comfortable. Perfect for travelers seeking some creature comforts without going overboard. Would definitely recommend to others looking to stay in Boston. Stayed for a couple of days and had no major dramas at all.

Lots of complaints on this site about the size of the rooms. Definitely they are not large, but by European standards (Oslo, Paris, London, even NYC) they are similar unless you are going for the Ritz. The room is arranged very well and is a bit stylish with its grey and red color scheme. The location cannot be matched (unless... More

What do you expect at this price point? The location could not be better, and the rooms could not be much smaller. Still, this is a busy, fun place to stay, especially if you're planning on using your room only to sleep. I would not recommend the Charlesmark if you need to do a business meeting; your hotel room is... More

We stayed at the Charlesmark over the July fourth weekend. It’s a fairly average hotel with some location conveniences and definitely less expensive than some other hotels in the area. We would consider staying here again. Pros: Very clean room Less expensive than neighboring hotels that were available Free wifi Back Bay area location Very close to transit station and... More

I was looking for a nice hotel within walking distance to most of the standard sites in Boston for the days leading up to July 4th with a budget of around $200/nite. No mean feat, especially when you've waited to less than a month before to book. I enjoy functional, contemporary design, and this hotel has it in spades. We... More

My wife and I stayed at Charlesmark in June. The first night we were there the smoke detector started chirping in the middle of the night likely a low battery. Needless to say we were up all night. When we discussed this with the desk attendant and her with the manager we didn't receive as much as an I'm sorry.... More

Hotel location is excellent.. close to Prudential Center, Metro and Train Stations, and at walking distance to Boston Common !!! Rooms are confortable, staff is helpful, and they provide free internet access thru wi-fi or local computers... All very good, except that the Breakfast is very poor.. hard to understand why... and the hotel price is really expensive..

We stayed at the Charlesmark Hotel in Boston last week. Excellent location, right beside the subway and staff were friendly and helpful. We were pretty satisfied with our stay until this morning when we had to check out at 4:30 am to catch a 6:40 am flight. There was no staff at the front desk but a sign that says... More

I really liked staying at this hotel for July 4th. it was just a few blocks from the esplanade where they have the Boston Pops and fireworks. We didn't do the Pops concert but just wondered down there right before the fireworks and stood on the street. Amazing! We paid a little extra and got the queen bed with a... More
