4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Have stayed at this property since it was the original Ritz and while it's been several years since we've stayed here, it is our choice of hotels in Boston. The service is still attentive and good and the rooms nicely done. My only disappointment is that the Taj has done away with the Club Lounge and Club floor, which is... More

It would be hard to beat this location. Central to everything. The room overlooking the park was spacious and comfortable. The staff was extremely pleasant. I agree it seems a little tired in decor, but we would stay here again with no hesitation.

The Taj Hotel is my favorite place to stay in Boston. It has a great location on the Common within easy walking distance of Newbury Street shopping and restaurants. The hotel itself is lovely, with a small but striking lobby, an intimate bar with a view of the gardens, and a terrific restaurant. One of my favorite treats when staying... More

Regretfully, stayed at the Taj for our wedding night. Have previously stayed at this property when it was a Ritz and loved it. Now it's just a tired, rundown shadow of the great hotel it once was. Booked our room directly with the hotel and made sure they knew it was a special occasion. I was assured there would be... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Taj before and found it to be a decent hotel. It is a great location, easy to get anywhere in the city but also walkable to some of the best restaurants, shopping etc. The staff is amazing - friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. Our room last time was ok, facing the park but... More

This is a grand hotel that with a flavor of the past. The hotel is very clean and well done although our room was a little tired compared to other hotels in this class. Certainly it will appeal to those who appreciate the old fashioned feel of an experienced hotel. The Taj is large enough to offer the services expected... More

The room was spacious and well furnished. The bathroom was very nice but a little small with no separate shower ( fairly typical of older hotels) Every little... More

This is a lovely, grand hotel in a great location. The decor in our room was maybe a bit tired decor wise, but it wouldn't put me off- it was very clean and comfortable with a huge bed, thick carpets and nice marble bathroom. Breakfast was superb.

It is a nice 4 star hotel but needs an overhaul. Plus - Rooms: nice size with large closets and wonderful view of the park. Great location on the park and Newbury Street. Nice staff. Negative: the bathrooms needed to have the grout cleaned and slippery tub. The lighting was terrible in the bathroom - difficult to put on make-up... More
