The Taj Hotel is lovely! It is located in a wonderful section of Boston, close to lots of awesome attractions and shopping. Our room overlooked the Common, and it was lovely. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The bathroom is a bit small but certainly do-able. I recommend this hotel strongly.

The room I was given was suppose to be a king bedded suite but instead was given a queen. The room was very tired carpets worn and stained as was the couch. Paint was peeling in the bathroom. In short how the mighty have fallen. This room should be totally refurbished.

The Taj in Boston is the refurbished Ritz Carlton a conservative hotel, with tradition and excellent position within the City. The service is friendly and professional. The cafe has excellent food. The rooms are a bit old fashioned but very clean and comfortable. I will return.

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely stay in a fireplaced suite with a fabulous view of the public garden (make sure you ask for a room on a high floor - we were on the 16th) mid week in December and found that the service was extraordinary - as an example - when we left a half filled bottle... More

TAJ itself is not a very modern style hotel, but does not mean it is old or out of maintenance. The hotel has very old money look, and the room are bigger than average 5 star hotel room with the same cost. Staff are friendly, the location is the key ! Just located right behind the Boston botanical garden ,... More

The hotel has a classic style. Rooms are spacious, but bathroom is small. Things are old but well kept. Location was very convenient for me (near park and Newbury Street). I got a room with a Park View. People who work there was so nice. Bath amenities were wonderful. The only thing that I should complain is about the Internet... More

Came to Boston for a Mommy/Daughter trip. Taj was excellent. The rooms were so spacious and clean! The location was perfect, we could walk anywhere and having Boston Common right outside the front door was so convenient to walk in any direction. The service was top notch!
