We stayed at Encore for four days while we explored Boston for our first visit there. It was fabulous - really enjoyed it and Reinhold was an excellent host assisting with dinner reservations, laundry recommendations and of course places to visit and more in between. We also loved the breakfast selection which set us up amply for each day's sightseeing.... More

Ideal location in Boston's South End. Great Hosts, very clean and comfortable and stylish design. Breakfast was super and there are 2 parking spots available for folks underway with a car (otherwise tough to park in the neighborhood).

Encore is a little gem, tucked away in South End. It is in arguably one of the best historical areas of Boston and very close to great restaurants and shopping in Back Bay. The rooms are clean and well considered, with cable TV and all the amenities you could possibly need on vacation. Tasty breakfast is included with a smile.... More
