This was our first stay at the Taj Boston, and we selected the hotel based its location next to trendy Newbury Street and previous reviews. The hotel delivered on every front, from the kerbside welcome to the stunning suite on the 14th floor. This is a grand old lady of hotels, so if your looking for a clinical boutique experience...

I travel extensively for both business and pleasure. I typically stay at one of the other Boston Copley hotels. Decided to try the Taj. Wonderful. Rooms were immaculate. Many many extra and appreciated touches. The bar was just like when it was the Ritz. Highly recommend.

Just finished my stay here and really enjoyed the old school feel of the place. Service was excellent as was the bar and restaurant on the first floor. I usually stay at the Liberty in the Beacon Hill/West End area, which is a little too trendy. Great location facing the public garden and Newbury Street.

I recently planned my son's 1st bday party at Taj room in Taj Boston and it was nothing short of perfect! The catering was excellent, food very authentic as per Indian cuisine standards and the service was commendable! The room decor and ambiance was very beautiful and all my guests thoroughly enjoyed the party.

I spent one weekend night at The Taj in a premier, park view room on the eight floor. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The view overlooked The Public Garden and the financial district skyline which, despite the rain, still looked stunning. The bathroom was not large but very elegant. I loved the Molton Brown toiletries! The stay was... More
