“Fantastic location to Boston central & value money.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

Over all great value for money! Central to the city precinct & a short walk to many of the monuments. As a solo traveller I felt very safe walking home in the evening & there are a number of tasty local restaurants close. The rooms were very clean however they were small, had poor water pressure (bad when it's cold!) & didn't have in room coffee/tea facilities. The refurb on the hotel was excellent. Eugene on reception was way cool!!!!- very welcoming & helpful!

Excellent staff HORRIBLE PARKING. No on site parking. Got our car towed! Small rooms however very clean. Helpful staff albeit the non existent parking.
Would I return? If I was chained to public transportation, yes. Otherwise I would forgo to a more expensive locale.

I stayed at the Chandler Inn Hotel for 4 nights. My stay was fantastic - everyone at the front desk was friendly and helpful with directions, the complimentary coffee came in handy pretty often, and the room was clean and comfortable. The walls are pretty thin, so street noise and noise from other rooms is audible, but otherwise it was a great value. It's within walking distance to Back Bay shops, restaurants, and the convention center, and it's only a couple blocks away from a great bakery/cafe. The neighborhood is quiet, residential, and safe. I would recommend it to anyone wanting an affordable place to stay with great access to Back Bay and South End.

After two nights at the YMCA in Harlem, the Chandler Inn was a breath of fresh air! We arrived early in one of the busiest days St Patrick's Day, thinking there was no way we could get checked in however Eugene was so helpful and friendly that he got us right in! Room was compact BUT we knew that coming in, they advertise that so there us no reason to get mad if you had researched your hotel. The room was well decorated and clean which made the atmosphere. I'll mention Eugene again cause in the one day of interaction he really helped to start our trip off on a good note, full of insight and positive vibes.
The only negative thing which was partially self inflicted was not knowing how to work the ac/heat.We couldn't find a medium temp and the second night couldn't get it to work. Luckily for me my husband is very warm blooded.

Overall a great stay!

I decided to stay at the Chandler Inn instead for the big name chain hotels around Hynes Convention Center during my meeting last February. It was a brisk,easy 10-15 minute walk to the Convention Center via the Prudential Center. The staff was friendly and personable and the lobby coffee machine is fantastic. The room is cozy... some may find it small but I thought it was comfortble for two people. I loved the modern decor and big, full-length mirror. My only complaint: the A/C was a bit noisy, and the problem was not resolved after I told the front desk about it. I was too tired/busy to complain about it a second time, but I should have. Nevertheless, I would recommend this comfortable, convenient and unique hotel to any short-term visitor to Boston.

I visited the hotel in February 2013. I had a lovely room on the 8th floor with a nice view. The room was clean and well fitted. The staff at the reception was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is definitely to be recommended. Very central and affordable. Well done guys!

Stayed one night at the chandler and i would happily go back again. Rooms and overall design of hotel is modern, bright and warm. Helpful staff on the check in desk and a free tea, coffee, and hot chocolate machine to help yourself to in reception. Food is in the bar next door. Reasonable prices but not connected to the hotel. Great place to stay.
