Our stay at the Taj was really quite lovely. Here's a quick summary: 1. We've all been to hotels where the staff don't do justice to the property and brand promise. This is not one of those hotels. From the personnel at the check-in counter to the concierge, wait staff at the restaurants, and housekeeping, this hotel has high quality,... More

The hotel is located on Boston Common within walking distance of plenty of cafes, shops and points of interest. The building itself oozes early 20th character with brass fixtures and fittings and an old mail chute that delivers correspondence from all floors to the lobby. The staff were friendly and kindly arranged for me to have a room with an... More

Was here last weekend. Very friendly greetings upon arrival. Lobby is clean, no signs of age. My room was an inside view. The room was very clean. Yes the carpet was a bit old, but the beds were comfortable, the bathroom was clean and large. This hotel receives a lot of age complaints, but you really need to study the... More

Nice stay at the Taj, as regular hotels were all booked. Service very good, room very comfortable and the gym was good too. Carpet in my room was quite stained, which was unfortunate as everything else was spick and span. Breakfast service was very quick and, though my poached eggs were rather overdone, everything else was superb.

We stayed just 1 night en route home. We got a great 'secret hotel' price, esp for a Saturday night. The hotel is situated in an upmarket area of town overlooking the park. The reception area is small and discreet, but tired. We were shown to our room with luggage taken for us. The room we were given was tropical... More

The Concierge staff is absolutely fabulous, as is the location. The halls, rooms and bathrooms need a major remodeling job. When we arrived our room was not ready. The front desk person apparently forgot to tell the bellman to bring our bags up to the room when we finally checked in, so we had to wait a bit. Overall the... More

PERFECT LOCATION, PERFECT SERVICE Darnell and Jeanne (Reception & Concierge) made certain everything went without a hitch and made certain I knew exactly were to go off the traditional tourist routes. Restaurant reccomendations were not the 'Go-To" expensive ones. They demonstrated creativity and understood their guests don't necessariily have to spend a fortune to have an exceptional time at Boston's... More

A very well situated hotel by the park and a short walk to some excellent museums and shops . You feel welcome the moment you step through the door and I really appreciated my room maid who was a real sweetheart when I came back to my room and wanted to make sure everything was perfect . The room was... More

I stayed at the Taj while in town for Halloween weekend. The hotel itself is in a great central location in the Back Bay on the corner of Arlington and Newbury streets. The lobby was beautiful, and the door staff as well and front desk staff prompt and polite. I was pleased that I was given a room on a... More
