I stayed one night in this hotel and overall had a nice experience. the staff was very helpful and friendly, and they gave me a room on the 16th floor even though I paid through hotels.com and got a discounted rate so was not expecting that. The room was clean, and while the bathroom was on the small side the... More

The hotel has a great location, right off Boston Common and off the shopping district. I paid $179/night on Hotwire, which worked out to be $217. The hotel is old and has a lot of style. The rooms are small especially the bathroom. I initially had a room overlooking the shopping district. Owing to a jackhammer, I was moved to... More

A great cozy place in the best part of Boston. My friend and I came to do some major shopping in Boston. Don't know if we enjoyed the Taj or shopping more. The room was absolutely beautiful, the staff could not do enough for us. What a pleasure to stay at such a fine hotel. Of course, during the summer... More

The taj is without a doubt a beautiful hotel in the best possible location in Boston, but is definitely missing something to make it the best. The staff although friendly is lazy. The door is never opened and we had to carry our shopping bags when we got out of the car. The room service was atrocious. I have to... More

Staff was welcoming, friendly, and pet-friendly! I brought my puppy, they were very accommodating and gave me a wonderful large, clean room with a comfortable bed and even had a dog bed sent up. Hotel is in a great safe location. The only complaint I have is that I couldn't change the temperature in the room.

I always stay at the Boston Park Plaza down the street but this year for the same money received the same price for the TAJ. What a wonderful hotel, wonderful staff, wonderful service. I will never go anywhere else.

I stayed here when it was the Ritz. I was in a fireplace suite. The service was great a bit staid though. Now, Taj took it over and wow, unpretentious class. We were in a premium room which was spacious and clean as a whistle. The furniture was appointed well. Michael at the front desk worked his magic because he... More

What a wonderful hotel. If you have the need to feel pampered and important this is the place to go. We stayed in a Fireplace Suite where you are actually given a menu to choose the type of wood you prefer at no cost.

This hotel is in a great location, on the corner of Newbury Street and Arlington...great shopping and dining. We were able to check in at around 10:30 am, so that was nice. The hotel itself is fine.
