We only had one night in Boston so wanted to be in a handy spot. We were surprised how expensive the hotels were at this time of year but the Charlesmark seemed to be a good pick. As noted by other reviewers, the rooms are very small but well designed and the bathroom was perfectly adequate with a good shower.... More

Boston hotels can be very costly at popular times of the year, so try the Charlesmark if your budget is not without limit. Its key attractions to my mind are its location, the quietness of the back rooms and the friendly and helpful staff. A modest breakfast option is offered and the ground floor bar can be a lively and... More

Excellent, friendly, small hotel in good position in the centre of Boston, close to all the attractions. We had a large comfortable, room. Our only reservation was over the breakfast, which was disappointing.

Spent two wonderful nigths in Charlesmark. The location is unbetable. I agree with some of the reviewers on the fact that the rooms are indeed small. However the space is so efficiently utilized that this does not come as a downside. Also, the overall charm of the hotel makes you forget about the size of the rooms. The staff were... More

Excellent small hotel in a great Back Bay location. Our room wasn't huge but perfectly adequate for a long weekend stay and on a high floor so noise wasn't an issue (not sure if it would have been had we been lower?). Surprisingly good tv channel options including HBO. We were fortunate that our stay coincided with one of the... More

This is the fourth time I've stayed at the Charlesmark and it definitely will not be my last. If you're looking for a full service mega chain hotel this is not the spot. If you're looking for a place that is centrally located in Boston with an extremely attentive staff, then stay at the Charlesmark. The rooms are not large,... More

On checking into this hotel we were so shocked at the size of the room and the bed! The bed was a little bit bigger than a single and there was no room for two suitcases. We were two friends sharing a room but even a married couple would of been on top of each other in this bed! We... More

I was planning a one day walking tour of Boston and needed a place well located to launch from. All my research pointed to the Charlesmark as an ideal compromise and ironically it is located right at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, so noted by a large stripe painted on the street! As other reviewers have noted, the... More

The Charlesmark was a great choice for our 3 day first time vacation to Boston. Walking distance to Fenway Park, right on the Boston Marathon finish line which was made an impact on us, nearby numerous historical sights and restaurants. If you stay here take 30 minutes to tour the Public Library directly across the street. Amazing architecture. Our room... More

We spent five nights in Boston and wanted to be located in the Copley Square area. This boutique hotel is in a perfect location. Staff was wonderful - always there to assist with directions, tea in the afternoon, safe deposit box (no safe in room). The free breakfast was very limited, but okay. It consisted of coffee, tea, juice, fruit,... More
