Amazing grand hotel off Arlington street close to Boston common and the revered Charles street. Also close to the famous "cheers" film location of its name sake . A bit tacky but so worth a visit. Boston tea party ships and museum excellent.

The Taj is in a wonderful location and the hotel was generous enough to upgrade us to a room with a park view. Our room felt spacious and had good facilities including a gym and restaurants. Staying at the Taj felt very special

Just got back from wedding in Boston and the rehearsal dinner was held at the Grand ballroom at the Taj. I stayed in one of the interior rooms on the 5th floor and this hotel is fantastic!! Very large rooms, mini bar inside, you can request ice to be brought to room, large bathrooms with robes are among the many... More

...of all the Boston Hotels I stay in, this is always the best. Great rooms, superb service and a location that makes it ideal for downtown meetings, Cambridge offices and also shopping and eating. Stayed in 1204 again, great room with lots of space to work. James at the concierge desk sorts everything out for trains and cabs etc, he's... More

The staff are not very friendly, they seem miserable and not what your usually get in the USA. No. Have a nice day! I think this maybe just a Boson thing. Had a fantastic view of the park, however I happened to stay during some marjunra support weekend. This meant that one evening the whole corner of my floor stunk... More

The restaurant staff were fantastic, shame about the rest of the hotel. Half the mini bar spirits had been emptied and filled with water (check you're room if / when you arrive). A call to house keeping did get the drinks replaced. Most dissointing is the constant mechanical / aircon drone that I'm listening to. I don't expect that for... More

Lovely hotel but I am only rating it 4 star because of a few faults. We got a fab room which was a corner room overlooking the main designer shopping street, which had fab views and fab sunsets. Fault 1, we were across the hall from an ice vending machine room, which was constantly noisy all hours of the night,... More

This is a luxury hotel in the perfect location for exploration and dining. Sitting between downtown, the main shopping area and Beacon Hill means instant access to all three within 5-10 minutes. Service is first class, wifi is very good. Good gym. The bar is also quite good. If I return to Boston I will stay here again. One minor... More

I spent the night at the Taj on a work trip it and was fine. The bellmen were prompt and friendly upon arrival. Retrieving my car at 5:30 a.m. the next morning was not a problem. The woman providing wake-up calls was delightful (I always appreciate a real human on the other end delivering a friendly greeting). The hotel was... More

We recently stayed here for four nights. Everyone with whom we interacted was friendly, extremely helpful and seemed to genuinely care about our satisfaction. We were in NYC for four nights before travelling on to Boston and the price for both hotels was similar. In NY we got a good room and great location and nothing else. At the Taj... More
