I proposed to my now fiance on the flight up to Boston. We both had never been to Boston and we looked forward to visit the city. Upon arrival we knew this was going to be a great place. The classic beauty of this hotel is seen instantly. If you didn't know this hotel use to be the Police Headquarters. The restoration of the building is awesome because they kept the history while giving it all the modern amenities. Once entering our room (they new the occasion as I called a few days prior) they had a Bottle of Champagne delivered to us plus Chocolate strawberries and a special CONGRADS note. The room was very nice...we had the Luxury King. I suggest upgrading to that. The bedding was stellar, the room although not huge was very adequate. The size of the room was made up with the size of the bathroom. Large walk in shower with plenty of space plus water pressure and temp was great. The accessories in there including bathrobe and heated towel rack was great. Plenty of room definitely in there. The view was ok...we laughed because there is an office building that was right across the way...on one occasion my fiance forget to shut the curtains and needless to say when she got out of the shower....well....just remember to shut the curtains. LOL. The staff were great...remembered our names and were always ready to make suggestions and answer questions. The bar downstairs is very nice and make great drinks. Although we didn't spend too much time actually in the hotel besides resting and sleeping....I always looked forward to winding down there. Fridge, Nice TV, Great Channels, Stereo and CD player... all the things you need while in the room are there. I am not a big review guy and we aren't " Uptight" when it comes to places to stay but we want to feel like people care while we are there and we want to have a place that is "Nice" but not over the top. We found it here. We read reviews here and anytime you do that you read good and not so good. Well the good far out weighed the bad ...and I am happy they were right! So if you are just considering Loews Back Bay...don't consider book it.
