The Charlesmark has a fantastic location, very clean, and with a friendly staff. In special Curt that always helped me to solve my doubts. The rooms aren't big but are efficient, the internet is good and around the hotel there are a lot of restaurants, and just a block from the T Station.

The hotel was recommended to me by a client as I was nervous about traveling to Boston in February and it is so near public transportation....presuming the trains are running which they weren't. The Hotel is steps from Copley Square and the Public Library. The shuttle from Logan ($5 or free with a Charlie Card) turned out to be a... More

Friendly small place well located for all attractions. Nice small rooms well equipped, with walk-in bathroom. Fast WiFi and HiFi as well in my room. Friendly bar at the lobby. Breakfast is poor and could be better. Close to the Marathon finish line, airport shuttle stops just there.

Having arrived late afternoon, I was welcomed by friendly host, classical music and Thai food menu in my Queen size room. My room was well-proportioned with walk-in bathroom, closet space and pull-out desk space. WiFi was instant, fast and reliable. Heating worked well with extra blankets provided on demand for comfort. The personalized city guide in my room was a... More

Arriving to Boston for the first time, I needed to meet a few coulleagues. The person incharge called me and said that he booked a room for me at the Charlesmark. When the cab dropped me near the hotel after a 20 minutes drive, it looked more like a restaurant than a hotel. With no expectations I just barched in... More

Have stayed at the Charlesmark on several occasions for business and always have had a great stay, close to T stations. Free internet, great coffee and light breakfast is a treat in a downtown hotel. Rooms are nice, modern, comfortable, there is a nice little bar in the lobby, no restaurant.

If you like friendly, helpful staff, a clean well appointed room, a great location and good coffee, the Charlesmark is for you! The staff upon arrival to the last minute of my departure made me feel like a valued guest. It was my first time to Boston and having arrived hot on the heels of a blizzard the city was... More

For the price, this extremely well-located boutique hotel stands out in a class of its own. This is the third time I have stayed there and it continues to be clean, reliable and good value. Especially in the Boston winter, being just steps from the T makes this an excellent choice for business and leisure travelers alike.

This is my third stay here. Right balance of location and price, but you have to be willing to give up some things. The rooms are very small, there's little to no space for your clothes with a very small place for hanging short clothes (no dresses) and no dresser to speak of. The room is nice and clean, as...

Small hotel, small room, absurd price but good location. Really loud we could here everyone and were originally put in a room right behind the bar where we had to walk through the club/lounge to get to our room. Had to ask to be moved and then moved to a room facing a ghetto alley, for $120 it wasn't worth... More
