Taj Boston… Overall (detailed review follows)… Our stay at the Taj was pleasant enough. Our “Boston common view” suite was spacious and comfortable enough but only 1 out of 6 windows actually looked out upon the garden (we had a far right corner room/suite). As others have mentioned, the furnishings are a bit dated ...but…the property still presents well overall.... More

My husband and I were excited to stay here based on the 5-star rating and good reviews. However, we found the facility disappointing and dated. The decor wasn't that great and we found the lack of bathroom lighting to be particularly odd (there is no lighting over the shower so it's super dark). We did have wonderful- and unexpected- Turn-Down... More

What a totally amazing hotel. From the front desk remembering your name 2 days later to the super friendly concierge her give great info and love a chat, I couldn't recommend this place more! The suite we had was very spacious, with a great pull out bed for our 2 year old. The decor is a little dated in parts... More

I came to this hotel trying to relive the old glories of the Ritz Carlton (this property used to be the chain's flagship before changing hands to Taj). It was a great disappointment. It has the best location in Boston hands down, however, they have all but given up on maintaining the hotel. The lobby had no air conditioning, the... More

We were very well pleased with the Taj. Our room was large, with a window facing the beautiful Public Garden. It was very quiet, clean and comfortable. The bath was a good size, with a hair dryer, robes and Molton Brown toiletries provided. The A/C worked very well (maybe too well). We loved the location, just a block from the... More

We chose this room on the spur of the moment--negative reviews not withstanding--and the Taj Boston looked phenomenal. Located right on the Boston Public Garden, we booked here for location. Practically on top on the Arlington Station, the hotel is near everything. So, we wanted a convenient location but we got SO much more. The historic building is beautiful. We'd... More

Loved this hotel from top to bottom. It is located it s relatively quiet area but is located right by the metro. Very classic interior and very friendly staff. Only downside was no coffee maker in the room but everything else was thought of including free water, wifi, and daily newspaper.

The rooms are large and nice. The Indian Restaurant in the hotel was excellent. The location was perfect right across from Boston Commons and around the corner from the Cheers bar. Public transportation is abundant.

We have stayed at the Taj in Boston and have been very satisfied. Very polite and helpful staff, excellent restaurant and great location! We dined at the restaurant twice and were very satisfied indeed! Definately worth a visit!
