I ended up at the Taj Boston on Saturday February 28 after my reservation at another property fell through during check-in. I was left scrambling to find a hotel near the Commons for a surprise engagement as my then girlfriend was mid-flight to Boston from Washington DC. From the minute I walked in, admittedly a bit frantic, the staff at... More

I travel a lot with work and stay in many hotels but this was poor from the outset: Only one person on reception so you had to queue for ages to be seen - not good after a long flight The bar staff did not seem to like single people taking up space and after ignoring me for some time... More

There are so many cookie cutter hotel rooms even in the more expensive category I never know what to expect. The Taj has a top location, great rooms, beautiful bathrooms, first rate service and near everything. The room we had was at a significant discount but still had a great view. The room is a good size considering the location... More

We were in Boston for a long weekend for a wedding, and chose the Taj because it was in close proximity to the wedding venue. From the the moment we walked in, the atmosphere was welcoming and the staff was friendly. We stayed in a park view suite, which had a nice seating area, desk, and fireplace in the main... More

The location of the Taj Hotel is wonderful. It is walking distance from many of the important sites in Boston. Across from the Boston Common Park. The rooms are spacious and very clean. In addition, the staff was very friendly. We had a lovely view of the park in a lovely room. I plan to stay here the next time... More

Upgraded our room with no extra charge upon arrival: nice and big and clean. The thermostat didn't work so it was either too warm or too cold but we appreciated the upgrade, loved the location, enjoyed fine attentive service and had a drink in the bar overlooking the public gardens both nights...a lovely place, reasonably priced and would recommend it...

I stayed at the Taj Boston for a company event. While I was not a part of selecting the hotel, I was certainly NOT disappointed. Customer service was top notch and the location excellent! Walking distance from many things and directly across the street from the park. My room was lovely complete with slippers, robe and water. Very comfortable and... More

Booked to stay New Years Eve and New Years Day. Arrived from London around mid day. The staff went out of their way to allocate an available room so that I didn't have to wait despite the hotel running at full occupancy. Wonderful festive atmosphere at the hotel. Excellent staff....very efficient and friendly. Perfect central location. A fantastic time was... More

This hotel is breathtaking. From the moment we walked in the door we felt taken care of. It almost felt like we were part of an old movie. We loved sitting in the bar and just relaxing.
