We spent a few days visiting Boston with our two children. The BEST location in Boston with close access to theaters, sporting events, public gardens, shopping, and the Charles River. Every staff member made us feel like we were returning home, not to a hotel. The individual attention to every detail is quite remarkable. The food and service at the... More

Perhaps my expectations were too high but that is largely because of the good reviews I had read on TripAdvisor. I would say that dollar for dollar this is one of the worst places I have stayed. The hotel is badly dated - nothing has been done with it since it was purchased in 2007. I thought I had walked... More

Another great stay, the Taj doesn't lose any of its charm....luxurious rooms (431 this time, plenty of space on the corner) fantastic staff, (especially legendary concierge James), great food and service in the small bar. Topped with the best location of any Boston Hotel and I can't fault the Taj. 10/10, yet again.

As a family of four, we had scheduled a lot of activities during our stay. What we loved about the Taj was that we were smack dab in the middle of everything so we could walk to most things or easily grab the train or taxi if necessary. Having the Public Gardens and Boston Common right across the street was... More

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.
