The Gryphon house has become my "go-to" for Boston University Alumni functions. Stayed in the Tuscany room which I appreciated being on the second floor. Wonderful space, large room with comfortable bed, bay windows, a small table, huge bathroom with shower and tub, wet bar with utensils, refrigerator, tea and coffee. I appreciate the owner's explanation about needing a restaurant... More

Our room was huge and well appointed. The location is walking distance to Fenway park and 1.8 mile walk to the Acquarium along fashionable Newberry street and through Boston Commons. The continental breakfast is nice and the large sitting room very cozy. Service was excellent and unobtrusive making our stay very nice and very comfortable.

The Gryphon House is a charming establishment located only two blocks away from Fenway Park. We chose this location primarily for the location even though it was priced somewhat high. The staff was very friendly, although we were checked in by a new girl who was on the job for the first day and was having some difficulity. No problem... More

First, I'd like to thank you for your positive comments & your sensitivity towards our newest staff member--much appreciated! I do wish you had spoken up about your issues to our more experienced staff members who were working at other times, so we could have addressed the problems at that time. The breakfast was not delivered to your room "late"... More

I have stayed here several times over the last 10 years for business and with family (couple) and am always happy with my stay. The rooms are spacious and beautifully and uniquely decorated. They are equipped with small kitchenettes to make lunch and snacks. Breakfast consists of a large selection of cold dishes such as granola and croissants. The street... More

We were disappointed that Gryphon House is sandwiched between 2 very busy roads however once inside it was a beautiful oasis of tranquillity and quality. The staff were the most helpful and genuine people we have come across in the US - nothing was too much trouble for them. They stored one of our suitcases to save us carrying it... More

Gryphon House has become the only place I stay in Boston. The rooms are huge, clean and very comfortable. The staff are incredibly helpful and genuinely kind which makes the lack of an elevator completely fine! They'll even shop and stock food specifically for various dietary restrictions: I need gluten free, vegan. Couldn't be nicer! Bonus in the city is... More

This place was great! A friend and I stayed in the North Tower for a week and I was shocked at how huge the room was (really I kept mentoning it was more like an apartment, it was that big). Staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were very good. The kitchenette was nice and had a good selection... More

I absolutely loved this place. The location was perfect for us as we could walk to Fenway. The staff were great - friendly and helpful. We stayed in Tuscan and it was spacious, clean and comfortable. We were there with two other couples. They stayed on the lower level in Sanctuary and Garden. Sanctuary has a full kitchenette if you... More

We stayed for 3 nights in the North Tower room on the top floor with our two teenage daughters. We had previously spent a week in New York City (hotel for one night and a modern self-catering apartment for the remainder), so we loved the contrast here. Gryphon House is a beautifully decorated old Brownstone building in a quiet location,... More

We stayed here during a five-day first time visit to Boston and this proved to be an excellent base. We wanted somewhere in a central location with a large room (there were three in our party) that was also reasonable value for money. The Gryphon didn't disappoint on any counts. Some other reviewers have commented on value for money versus... More
