We spent 5 nights at the Gryphon House, and it was absolutely the best. Our room was spacious, nicely decorated, and we felt like we had an apartment not a hotel room. Perfectly located from the Kenmore Station, where we could get around to just about everywhere in Boston. Started each day with a very nice continental breakfast, and would... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Tuscany room. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The sheets on the bed had a vintage feel with a large flower print. A continental breakfast is available each morning. The location was great -- close to Fenway and just across the bridge from MIT.

My fiancee and I booked the Gryphon House for a three night stay due to it's close proximity to Fenway and the reviews we read online The reviews were absolutely spot on! This is one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in! Upon our arrival, a staff member met us in the back lot to show us where... More

My husband and I spent three nights in the Garden Room which was absolutely beautiful - I loved all the little things in the room which made it so charming. The bed was so comfortable which we were thankful for after long busy days sight seeing in the city. The room has plenty of room and was very quiet. We... More

Wow, thanks so much! I'm delighted by how much you enjoyed the Garden room-- we think it's charming, too, but some folks just can't get past the idea of being "in the basement"! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at our place. And Shannon is certainly becoming a hit around here! She only started recently, so it's really great... More

I went to Boston for a business conference at the Convention Center, and typically stay at the designated Conference Hotel, which in this case was the Downtown Sheraton. Although disappointed that I was late registering at the hotel and the block of rooms were sold out, it was in fact a blessing. I searched for hotels in the area for... More

Location in the Back Bay area was great, close to shopping and restaurants. Walked to Fenway Park, took only about 15 minutes. Room we had was clean and comfortable, and it had everything as advertised.

In Boston, the land of hugely higher prices than almost anywhere, it was worth it to spend the money to stay at Gryphon House. Fresh flowers and a welcome note from owner Teresa awaited us in the Garden room. This is the house's smallest offering, but plenty roomy for two and probably even three. It is a few steps down...

We stayed for a night on the 4th of July to avoid driving home following the concert & fireworks. The room was one of the best I've ever seen or stayed in: old world decor with antique furniture -- very comfortable. The appliances were up-to-date and flawless. The shower was heavenly. Our hostess Loren was friendly & accommodating. Its pricey... More

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
