At the last minute, I came to Boston for a trade conference at the Hynes Convention Center. The local big hotels were sold out, so I searched for a bed and breakfast and found the Gryphon. I'm glad I did, and would choose it again even if standard hotels were available. It's about a 15 minute walk from the Hynes,... More

We enjoyed a terrific 3-day stay. The room was spacious enough with a queen + twin. The location was excellent, close to lots of places we were interested in going & the service was friendly & responsive. When we return to Boston one day, we'd definitely prefer to say at the Gryphon House!

Beautiful and well located if you want access to everything Back Bay. You can make your own park and architecture tour from this location. The staff will do everything they can for you, even provide umbrellas on a rainy day and make sure you have a cab at 3 a.m. If you love quaint old world beauty and charm, you'll... More

My experience here was A+, the staff very accommodating. I know rooms are expensive, but it is expensive any where you go in Boston. The room price is in the range of where it should be for this area & very close to Fenway Park. We had tickets to the game at Fenway & were running late,the girl gave us... More

I visited Gryphon House on a college road trip with my son. While the breakfast was a little underwhelming, ( we ate out after the first morning,) the friendly helpful staff, excellent location, lovely house, and convenient parking, made it an excellent choice.

Everyone at the B&B was very gracious. We arrived in Boston at 8 am and they let us drop our luggage off and partake in the breakfast even though we were not already checked in. Everything was within walking distance and there was a bike hub just 2 blocks down the road. This is a great place for people visiting... More

The Gryphon House was a perfect fit for our family trip. We reserved three rooms - two on the 3rd floor and one in the basement. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The 3rd floor rooms were spacious and very comfortable. An extra perk was the public bathroom between the two 3rd floor rooms, since there were 3 adults and... More

The Gryphon House is in a great location, quiet and tree lined. Fenway Park and the Hop On, Hop Off bus stop is only a 10 minute walk away and the subway is just two blocks down the street. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The staff is extremely accommodating and couldn't be nicer.

Exceptionally large room (really a suite) with kitchen, quite quirkily furnished. Beautifully appointed bathroom. Very friendly with a very adequate breakfast.Main line Metro access very close. Only downside is that it's close to a very busy raised road intersection, which whilst not interfering too much with sleep, meant that half of the immediate walking environment was unattractive.

Thanks for your review and for choosing to stay with us! We hate the overpass next to us, too, but there's not much we can do but avert our eyes to all the other beautiful things nearby! :) It's even sadder when you know that that section of the Muddy River was originally part of the "Emerald Necklace", the connecting...
