“Extreamly nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

Great location, luxurious and overall very nice hotel with extreamly helpful and friendly staff. Room was big and beds very comfortable. Internet access possible through the flat screen TV in the room. To mention somtething that could be improved, it would be the sound/noise isolation of the door to the hallway.

Spacious, sunny rooms. Very comfortable King size bed, soft pillows and duvet. Service courteous. Not tried the breakfast or wireless connection. Excellent location and close to good restaurants. What should become a problem are the thin walls .. who is in the hallway can listen to what goes on inside the rooms and vice versa.

The hotel is in a great location right across from the Prudential Center in downtown. Overall very nice hotel and room however, the wall rooms are a little thin you can hear more than normal murmuring noise from the room next door or hallway, full tv conversations or phone conversations, and the hallways are dimly lit.

I can't even begin to describe how positive my experience with The Colonnade Hotel was. I am delighted to write this positive recommendation to anyone interested in an incredible experience at one of, in my opinion, Boston's best hotels. Our request for early check-in was graciously accomodated, our room was beautiful and had an incredible view of the city. We were always greeted with warm greetings and every effort was made to ensure that our stay was more than we hoped for. You can NOT beat the service or quality for the value. I highly recommend The Colonnade Hotel to anyone interested in a perfectly located, clean, friendly, and luxurious modern Hotel!

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the more spectacular the view!

I just can't say how great my latest visit to the Colonnade was. From Nuala's greeting at the entrance to Norman's help with my luggage and securing my cabs my experience was first class. This hotel has been totally remodeled and everything about it exudes service and class. Mike was one of the best room service waiters I have ever experienced and I travel for a living. Sheb offers outstanding concierge service. I will be back.

I was impressed with the exceptional level customer service from the staff at the Colonnade. The hotel room was spacious and laid out very well. The food at Brasserie Jo was delectable and worth every penny. I would recommend this boutique hotel to my friends, family and colleagues; I plan on making this place THE hotel I stay at when visiting Boston. My only complaint is that there wasn't any 'sugar in the raw' available in the hotel room.

Not the first place that comes to mind when I think of the Back Bay of Boston, but what a great find. The service is outstanding. Rooms are good size, clean, modern. Location is great -- not far from pretty much everything in the Back Bay; the city is small so everything is a quick T ride or cab away if you don't feel like walking. Parking is a pain but that's the case everywhere in Boston. Tip: Grab a glass of wine at the bar and you'll think you're in Paris. The rooftop pool was closed for the season when I was there but it looks like it would be a blast.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the south are quieter, north side have a better view though.
