This was my first stay in a Taj hotel and was surprised at the quality and service levels. The hotel has a very nice location and the rooms are classic (this hotel was previously a Ritz) and they obviously utilized a lot of the decor. I would consider this hotel and brand again.

It was our first time in the States and we had spent a few nights in New York before heading over to Boston (which made the contrast all the more apparent). Our stay at the Taj Boston was nothing but fantastic. Check-in was smooth and the friendly guy at the reception made it a point to introduce all the hotel... More

Recently stayed at the Taj for a conference. From check in to check out I was treated with such exceptional service I felt the staff had known me forever. Check was effortless. The room was beyond what I had imagined, a very comfortable bed and all the amenities that I could have wished for, including fast wireless internet. Staff greeted... More

From the moment we arrived at the Taj we knew we were in for a real treat. The surrounding area was lovely, beautiful park across the street and friendly staff from the door to the desk. Our check in process was seamless and we were taken up to our room within minutes. We were located on a high floor looking... More

Quick visit to Boston and this hotel made the trip even better. Room was good, king size bed very comfortable, nice bathroom if a little on the small side. Good quality toiletries. Room service staff were very considerate. Ate both breakfast and lunch here. Food was excellent as were the staff. I really enjoyed the clam chowder and my husband... More

I was only in Boston for a 24 hour business trip and had just come off of 21 days of global travel. I was so happy with my executive floor room at The Taj I was immediately saying I'd come back and forgo any other Boston hotels on my next trip - and I've tried them all! This is an... More

The Reservationist (Patrick) was terrific and the concierge (Tom) as well. All the staff was very accommodating. The location was perfect and the view of the park was wonderful and well worth the slight extra charge that Patrick arranged. The concierge arranged for Enterprise to pick up our car when we arrived AND deliver a new one when we left,... More

Wow, the services were great. Doorman, lobby, check-in, cleaning, turn-down, bar services and food. The BUFFET on Sunday is awesome.... Rooms are spacious and nice, little dated, but still very nice. Convenient to shopping, food and sights. Great weekend home-base. (And for business)

The Taj Hotel is located in the best area of Boston. The room was clean and comfortable. I appreciated the turn down service. However, getting an in room coffee maker was more of a production than I felt was necessary. We had to call the front desk to get one, and then call again after waiting for a bit. Then... More
