The hotel is beautifully modern and clean, the rooms are small, but has everything you need, and very stylish. A really good use of space. We encountered 3 different receptionists, all of whom were extremely helpful and polite. Nothing was too much trouble. Despite what we had read about the breakfast, we found it really good, all of the food... More

This hotel is located on Boylston Street in the middle of a block of store, restaurants, and shops. It is a boutique-style hotel, so the rooms are very minimalistic and small but functional. There were two adults and a teenager and it was a tight fit for sleeping. We traveled by train so parking was not an issue. Free Continental... More

If you could pay 1/4 the rate of Fairmont room and share the same district, this could be your best bet. It is next to the Boston Public Library so it is easy for Uber to locate it, and right in the heart of Backbay, you can catch the train from opposite the road and go everywhere from there with...

Although the rooms are small the heart of this hotel is big and the location cannot be beaten. Fabulously located right on Copley Square, the hotel offers everything a traveller could need: a comfy bed, a decent shower, helpful staff and a nice simple breakfast. Pluses include access to subway, being able to walk to the Common and Gardens, and... More

My Boston friends did not know that this handy gem was there. A block from Copley Sq. and Trinity Church. Neat shops, galeries, and restaurants. It is clean, quiet, convenient and affordable. Rooms are small, but we'll appointed.

Our visit was the first time staying at this hotel. Th rooms, although relatively small, are clean and well stocked. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly Breakfast comes with the room and there is a bar onsite. I would not hesitate to recommend this to friends, and I certainly would book here again.

I highly recommend this hotel for visiting Boston area. We stayed here for two nights in October. The location was perfect for the sites we visited. We stayed in one of the larger rooms in the back of the hotel and therefore did not have a view- (the windows were frosted). After booking online the hotel staff reached out to... More

The room was excellent. The hotel has a very kind staff. The location is superb! in Copley area and it is close to almost every where you wanna visit. It is also very close to subway. You don't want to rent a car in Boston for sure!

To reach the hotel there are two options, you can take a taxi for around $25 or you can take the subway to Copley station where it is a few meters from the... More

I have stayed at the Charlesmark a few times now when I have been visiting Boston. I will say you cannot beat the location, and the staff is wonderful. My mom and I really enjoyed being just a short walk from Newbury Street, as well as in close range to many other places. In addition, the morning breakfast was great... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
