We stayed 2 nights. It was a great location to walk everywhere. A word of advice-don't drive in Boston. Detours, construction, marathon prep kept us going in circles for an hour. The cheap parking filled up by the time we found it ( between the grassy park areas). Andrew was very helpful. Breakfast was donuts, fruit, hot oatmeal. I have... More

I chose this hotel for location and the remarks about how cool the bar was. Both did not disappoint. My conference was at a hotel in Cambridge but I wanted to be more "in" Boston. This hotel is at the finish line for the Boston Marathon and across the street from the landmark public library. I didn't have much time... More

Found this on Expedia with good rate, had never heard of it. Well, glad I discovered it. Great location across street from Boston Public Library. All staff that I dealt with were helpful and friendly. Room I got was small, but modern and clean reminded me of Ikea/Swedish style. Fridge in room, free Wi Fi, Continental Breakfast nice with fresh... More

Charlesmark is a small botique hotel located right on the finish line for the Boston Marathon. Subway is a block away, and Newbury Street is right around the corner. It is an easy walk to the Commons or Beacon Hill. The rooms are small but very functional and very nicely decorated.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for his birthday. It is the most adorable super cool hotel. The service was outstanding and the lounge in the lobby was great fun too. I recommend it to anyone wanting to stay right in the middle of Boston! Check it out- support a small business and have a fabulous time!

Location is superb, and the cleanliness of the room faultless. Room a touch on the small side but no great problem as I was travelling alone. Breakfast rather a non-event. Bar downstairs is very good though, with a decent selection of beers - including the local Harpoon IPA which I strongly recommend. Food there is also very good. I'd give... More

The location is great it is right in the center of Boston. The rooms are a bit small but if you won't be at the hotel a lot and you will be using your room only for sleep I believe it is a great option.

Stayed here for three nights at the end of February. They offered a deal where a two night booking entitled you to the third night free. A very reasonable price for a great location. The hotel is small (perhaps 40 rooms) and is located immediately next to the finish line of the Boston Marathon. There are numerous stores and restaurants... More
