We decided to play tourists in our own city and spend two nights at the Eliot in August. The hotel is conviently located at the corner of Comm Ave and Mass Ave and very accessible from the MBTA. Check in was quick and easy with a European staff. The hotel did remind me of something I have seen in Paris which was nice for our escape. It had an older elevator (albeit small). Upon check-in we were given two cold bottles of water. On arrival to the room, were some tasty cookies. We had a one bedroom suite which was gorgeous.The king sized bed was extremely comfortable with large and comfy pillows. Each room had its own flat screen tv and the rooms were separated by French doors. We also had a little butler pantry with a wetbar (and expensive mini-bar). The bathroom seemed updated with good water pressure. The room had good black out curtains which blocked out that early morning Eastern sun. My only complaint was the street noise. Massachusetts Ave is very noisy and starts up early in the morning. Unfortunately, our room looked over this road and being a light sleeper, I was awakened by the noise. Besides that, I have no complaints. The room was comfortable, the staff friendly, and the location very convienent to Newbury and Boylston Streets as well as the Common and Public Gardens. Boston is a walkable city and one day that is just what we did. We also went to a concert at nearby Fenway Park which was in walking distance. We did not eat at the restaurants at the hotel. (We liked the menu of the sushi restaurant but it was a little pricey for us and we had some restaurants we wanted to check out)At times, this hotel can be expensive but we received a satisfying rate and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
