Stayed at the Taj while visiting college. The Taj is old Ritz but it seems the owners do not take care of the maintenance. The rooms and bathrooms are in much need of basic M&R. The price is high and doesn't justify the chipping and cracks in the rooms. The bar/ restaurant is nice and the food is good. The... More

The Taj has a superb location on the public gardens. We were upgraded to a larger room overlooking the gardens and we very much enjoyed the view. The hotel is a very old hotel that has been kept up by Taj but is quite tired and could use a freshening up. The carpets are a bit worn and the paint... More

This is a review for the Restaurant. The food is super good with a little something extra in the spices. The service it top rate, and best of all it is not loud like so many trendy places today. It is in a great location for a walk after dinner in Boston commons.

Two-day getaway to Boston. I was concerned that the Taj might be a bit tired since it hasn't been extensively renovated for quite some time. We were very pleasantly surprised from the excellent arrival service, efficient check-in, and a lovely city-view room. The diminutive lobby was spotless, and each staff member exhibited refined, attentive service. Our room was a nice... More

Our second stay and we do recommend the Taj. The staff generally are wonderfully helpful and professional- Concierge team are especially good. My learning is that I booked the room on line and in my name. My wife arrived about 90 minutes ahead, as I had arranged. Sadly she was rejected as room in my name. We understand why but... More

I visited Boston in the first week of June to attend a business conference which was being held at Taj. Our stay was also arranged at Taj only. First of all, Taj is situated at the perfect location- facing public garden, closer to financial district, at the corner of Shooping lane at Newburry street... The staff at the hotel is... More

Nothing fancy here. Given the brand I expected more. I just think it's beat. Old. Location to common and Boylston is great. But I think I still would have preferred a newer hotel for the money. No store for snacks, water, and sundries which really annoyed me. It was freezing out when I stayed so this was a big inconvenience.... More

Checked in a little late, reservation from Trip-advisor was confusing to the Hotel, but the staff managed to get us the room we like. that was a busy Saturday day, and a family of 5 arrived without reservation and a staff literally called the whole Boston trying to find them a room. that is what I called extreme services.
