“Old Style Elegance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Have been coming to this hotel for many years - even got married here! From the well-furnished and maintained rooms to the great Jimmy Fisher, the senior (and I mean senior) bellman who has worked for the hotel since the days before the current owners, the Saunders, bought it in 1960. Jimmy never forgets a face and even remembers what rooms we like.

Green Features: The Lenox was one of the first hotels that I saw that made attempts to be environmentally friendly. This was many years ago.

We stayed at the Lenox for four days and found it to be the ideal location for exploring Boston. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. The staff are warm and welcoming and helpful to a degree not experienced at other hotels. Our room was comfortable and the bed excellent. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed 3 nights for business. Stepping in the lobby feels like you're transported back to an age of grand luxury, but without the pompous feel. You feel welcomed by the friendly and attentive front desk staff, quick to point out the many features of the hotel like free wi-fi, business center, and gym. The rooms are very large and were quite plush. I've stayed in similar luxury hotels, but the Lenox wins them all with their thoughtful unassuming service and beautiful, but comfortable accommodations. You are within walking distance to Boston Common and Boylston street shopping is right outside your door. The T stop is also one block from the hotel. I will be returning to the Lenox the next time I'm in Boston.

Whenever i stay in Boston i stay at the Lenox ,the location is perfect.
Once inside the hotel the the ambiance and friendly staff with al their smiles and greetings
make me feel at home.
Then that call you by name whenever they see you wow.
The rooms are super clean beds are perfect and all the toiletries are KIEHLS
If you forget anything at home such as shaving cream etc they will send it up no charge
I could go on and on "IT JUST DOESNT GET ANY BETTER

If you go to Boston, please stay at the Lenox. The Hotel is gorgeous and the staff is very friendly. One of the best parts about this hotel is the location. You are literally steps away from good food and great shopping. Everyone from the bellhops to the desk clerks to the housekeeping staff, they can't get any nicer. You can tell they really like working there. When we come back to Boston, we will definitely stay at the Lenox.

Room Tip: We requested a room with a few of the Boston Marathon finish line.

As other reviews have said, the staff at this hotel are extremely courteous, friendly and helpful. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for them and they always greet you with a smile upon entering or leaving the hotel. The hotel itself is a solid 4 star in a great location, with plenty of bars, restaurants, shops etc within easy walking distance. Half hour walk down to the harbour area and Quincy Market. Beds are extremely comfy, plenty of toiletries in the bathrooms, which are replenished daily. We only ate breakfast in the hotel, but this was more than adequate and filled us up for a day of shopping in the Prudential Mall next door and the outlet village at Wrentham. All in all a great hotel and one I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Room Tip: High corner rooms are the biggest with the best views.
