HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

My husband and I brought our adult kids on a Boston vacation after our oldest graduated from college. We had a 2 bedroom suite which was perfect for us. The hotel is lovely, with amazing service and a location in the Back Bay which is unbeatable. We walked everywhere. Close proximity to Newbury Street, Fenway Park, the Public Garden and...

Really enjoyed the stay at Eliot Hotel. Staff were great, particularly Kevin and Manuel. Spacious rooms in a great location, close to Convention Centre station (T), shops and Fenway Park. In room coffee facilities, turn down service and plus knowledgeable staff made for a great stay. Thanks

I wish to thank this guest for taking the time to review his stay and for his high rating of our hotel. It certainly is the combination of our "perfect location," comfortable and "very big" rooms, and our "amazing staff," that helps us create such great guest experiences.

My 11 year old son and I stayed at the Eliot for a weekend. We loved it. The staff, from the valet to the front desk to room service were friendly and gracious, but not stiff or overly solicitous. We were upgraded to a suite, which gave my son his own space. The location is perfect. Walking distance to everything...

I wish to thank this guest for taking the time to review her stay in our "lovely elegant hotel!" Our staff is genuinely caring so guests can enjoy the friendliness and warmth with which we enjoy providing hospitality.

This was my second stay at the Elliot. I appreciated the individualized attention given to my stay this go around. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. It's in short walking distance to Newbury and Boylston Streets- which is wonderful for dining and shopping between business meetings.

We had a suite at the Eliot Hotel. It was perfect. Staff was amazing. Breakfast was amazing and Uni rocks! Highly recommend Eliot Hotel to Berklee families, very proximal to a very urban and cool campus.

Like being in a small European hotel - I look forward to staying there when in Boston on business! Lots of space with both a bedroom and living room, nice area for making coffee (wetbar) and a huge closet - easy to get comfortable!

The Elliott staff were excellent and the hotel is conveniently located, the hotel and rooms are pretty nice...pillows were great...but the bathroom floor needed to be scrubbed and the sink faucet was in such bad repair it was almost inoperable.

This is a classic hotel - old style and very nicely decorated. The rooms are all suites with a bedroom, french doors and living room. They even have 2 bedroom suites. So every room is as good as every other room. Its in the heart of Boston so there is no such thing as a room with a view per...

Very well appointed and comfortable. Great staff. The only parking available is valet, but as long as you give a 30 min. warning they'll have your car waiting for you. It's easier to take a cab in Boston since the parking is very difficult.

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighborhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
