We were greeted warmly upon arrival and had our bags shipped up to our rooms instantly without touching them ourselves. At check-in I got talking to the guy behind the counter and soon 4 of them had gathered to tell us all about Boston and what to do as we were first time visitors. Our rooms were surprisingly nice, nicer... More

Excellent service from the front desk to the concierge. Great location and walking distance to restaurants and bars. The room was set in a traditional old fashioned style but it worked just fine. The room was extremely clean and the bathroom was amazing! Love the toiletries they provided! I would definitely stay here again!

We stayed at this hotel during our visit to Boston after being loyalist to the Taj group overseas. Can't say that the service is parallel to what the Taj is known for abroad, but it certainly is a decently restored hotel. The brunch buffet on the rooftop just wasn't comparable either, but still lovely. Loved the location and it's close... More

I would only stay in this hotel in Boston. Perhaps it is one of the oldest hotels, but it is elegant, comfortable and very clean. I adore having the turn down service at night which so few hotels offer and anything which we wanted (more pillows) lighting the fireplace, was seen to immediately. The location is right in the middle... More

front desk never has enough staff....only one person was at the desk during my last two visits...constantly waiting at ck. in, or just trying to get change for a $20.... How does a hotel this size have only one person at the front desk....also I think it's time to change the mattresses....they seem soft....Over all beautiful hotel, right on the... More

Elegant hotel at an awesome location. Great for walking around in the garden and minutes to most places you would want to visit in Boston. My room was spacious and comfortable but the decor was dated. The bathroom tub did not drain well but the front desk quickly sent someone up to fix it, clean up and replace all towels.... More

I have never before reviewed the same hotel twice, but I am going to make an exception: the Taj Boston is a venue truly worthy of multiple visits! I had stayed in June of 2014 for a wedding, and had such a great time that I decided to return in November for a birthday getaway; and I must say, the... More

I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of this hotel given the price and proximity to Copley Sqaure and the great shopping in the area. It is quite elegant, with lovely rooms that are a good size. I was there for buiness but I would consider this for a family vacation given the location.

Needed a place to stay in Boston, and as sort of a travel snob, I wanted to stay somewhere fancy. The Taj seemed like a good deal ($370/nt for the standard city-view room) based on other brands in the area. The neighborhood is perfect for those looking to be touristy. Tons of boutiques and shops line the nearby streets, and... More

This is a good hotel centrally located in downtown. The helpful employees contribute to the old fashioned, elegant service . Beautiful marble lobby and subdued eleganance throughout. The flower arrangements are gorgeous and creative. Nothing fake here! The room service is wonderful with pretty linens and sweet flower on cart.
