Great hotel in an excellent location for our 3 night stay in Boston, close to the train station in Back Bay which we arrived at from NYC. We had requested a high room with a view and weren't disappointed, it was great. Well equipped and furnished, although we had booked the slightly larger room. The staff in the hotel were... More

The previous few reviews say it all! Gr8t location, gr8t staff; convenient to airport shuttle, old town trolley, buses and subway. Don't miss the Top of the Hub on the 52nd floor of the Prudential building. Would recommend in a heartbeat❤️❤️❤️

We stayed for two nights and loved our time at the Charlesmark. You really can not beat the location. Extremely close to the T, and lots to see and do within a short walk. We arrived before our room was ready but they had no problem holding our bags and even gave us a call when the room was ready.... More

Can't beat the location...central to so many things it is easy to run back to the room in the course of your day if needed. Rooms are small but are modern and clean with pretty much everything...TV is very large, stereo, safe, refrigerator, closet, storage shelves. Bed small but comfy. Bathroom is very small, but ceiling very high so it... More

The Charlesmark is on Boylston right at the marathon finish line, opposite the library. Terrific location right in the middle of everything Boston. We walked to Fenway Park and to the North End. Copley Square is just around the corner. Hotel has unloading space on Boylston then park at 100 Clarendon, about 4-5 mins away, for $28 /night. Hotel has... More

We were back in Boston for a reunion and it was my first visit to the hotel, my husband's second. Loved our room on the very top floor facing the library with perfect view of the marathon finish line!Saw the construction but did not hear any noise. Loved that we could walk everywhere and have access to lots of eating... More

Amazing hotel located in front of Copley Square and the public library, the T is just around the corner with the green line that leaves you in the museums and connects with the red line to get to the financial district and harvard... Nice staff

A second stay at the Charlesmark confirms this to be one of the better hotel values in central Boston. Eerily, the hotel is located at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. It is a very small, almost squeezed in between storefronts, and would be easy to miss driving by. The rooms are quite small, but clean and uncluttered. Unless... More

This hotel was in a great location right at the finish line of the marathon. The staff was wonderful except for one detail,ongoing construction of the Boston library renovation woke up up at 6am to the sound of jackhammers. The construction was known and yet we were never told of it. So make sure that you ask about construction and... More

We always ask for a quiet room, preferably with a window that will open. We first stayed at the Charlesmark a year ago and our room fit our request. The rooms are small but the space has clever storage. This year we checked in and discovered our room was opposite the elevator. Then we heard the woman in the room... More
