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

Stayed here for quick business trip. Rooms exactly as represented. Staff friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Would definitely recommend. Would definitely stay here again. Great location to all the shops on Newbury street. Easy walk to Boston Commons. Tons of great restaurants, coffee shops and more. Beautiful architecture, historical monuments all in just a few blocks. Boston metro (the "T") very... More

I almost walked past the entrance when I first got there. It was very small and compact when you first come in. They had a room ready for me and they only have one elevator so if other people are coming through you'll be waiting a bit. They have standard keys, which I like mainly because it makes you feel...

The Charlesmark is a hotel that was converted from a private residence. The rooms are small and the design is cramped. My room had a "stereo" system that was supposed to work with the television. The control switch was located in the bathroom and the sound was not coordinated with all stations. It sounded more like an echo machine. One... More

This hotel is located on the finish line of the Boston Marathon. That is the end of the good news. No place to park when you check in. Tiny rooms. Paper thin walls. Good shower head. You can do better in downtown Boston.

We have just visited Boston and are still amazed by this beautiful town. We stayed at the Charlemark Hotel which was a bit overpriced due to the Pride 2014. The room was quite small but still comfortable to stay in. The Hotel offers free Wi-Fi, 2 free-to-use PC's with printer, iron, small ironing board, fridge, Comcast TV, and complimentary breakfast....

Stayed here recently on a last minute trip to downtown Boston. Grateful for the reservation but the room was very small and difficult for two full sized people and 3 pieces of luggage. The bed was only a double, we are used to queen. The storage for suitcases was very limited in the room. Otherwise the room was fine for... More
