I had been planning this trip for sometime as a surprise for my husband's birthday. We arrived on April 16th, one day after the tragic events at the Boston Marathon.
We were welcomed warmly by all the staff as we checked in and as we had been travelling all day, they provided us with a brief update on the situation. Leah at the front desk was warm, wonderful and so helpful (Thank you so much) on directions and tips to everything.
This hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to just about everything.
We stayed in room 538 (corner room) the room was huge by hotel standards, the bed and pillows were the best ones we have slept on. The food in the bar was good and we ate there a few times, try the lobster roll it was very good. We tried the turkey BLT and the bread was rock hard, I wouldn't recommend this selection. The fish and chips were very good.
Heather at concerige was very helpful and arranged for us to have a late checkout. We asked her numerous questions about the subway system and she was extremely helpful.
I would recommend the Back Bay hotel to everyone and we can't wait to return to the hotel and this beautiful city. BE STRONG BOSTON!!!
