I just returned from five nights in Boston staying at The Inn at St. Botolph. My experience with their customer service was 5 stars from booking until picking up my stored luggage after checkout. The hotel staff was very helpful with fixing a problem (on my end) with my reservations before arrival. All of the check-in information was emailed to me prior to my arrival, so check-in was easy. Our room was spacious, like a small flat with sitting area, bedroom, kitchenette and bathroom. The kitchen had a refrigerator, toaster oven, microwave, and an electric stove top, along with utensils, dishes, and pans. This Inn is located in a quiet neighborhood and a very walkable location, close to a mall, restaurants and grocery store. On our day of departure our flight was very late in the evening and the manager stored our luggage past their regular office hours. I appreciated the kindness of the staff at the St. Botolph Inn. I travel often, but this was my first trip after a challenging year of my husband passing away and the Covid Pandemic. I could not have chosen a more perfect place to stay.

What a magnificent building and room! Our room 301 was very large with a separate sitting area that converted to separate bedroom for our college age son. The room was very modern extremely clean and well appointed. Only suggestion would be coffee pods for the coffee maker. Their system for checking in unique in that they send you codes to enter the building and room without the headache of "checking in". For the area we found the rate they charged to be reasonable given what was provided. The hotel is conveniently located to the university, shops and restaurants. We will definitely stay there again.

I visited Boston with my husband and baby, the staff were super helpful and available for all questions prior to visit. They provided a crib. We felt VERY safe even during COVID, we barely saw anyone throughout our stay, it was super clean, we were so glad to have our own kitchenette. The location was great, quiet little neighborhood but very close /walkable to Boston landmarks and shops in case we needed anything. Loved it and would 100% stay there again.

I wish that I could give this hotel 2.5 stars, I was really torn between poor and average, but I think due to some customer service issues, I would have to come down on poor. There were good aspects of the stay, but overall, I could not really recommend this property in good conscience. The Good: There were a lot of factors that influenced us to choose this hotel. For one, I really loved the apartment-style feel of the one-bedroom suite. I loved having a separated living space from the bedroom, and also loved that the bedroom would not be right next to another person's bedroom. I also thought the kitchenette was charming, and outfitted (as promised) with cooking supplies and plates/utensils/etc. Also, the location was great, near many South End restaurants, but not too close to the hustle and bustle of Copley and Back Bay. I also thought (initially), the price was very fair. The Bad: This hotel could use just a bit of an update. There were a few elements that were a little dated or rough around the edges, which competed with the styling of the overall room. This was not too much of a damper on the trip, but just not the most aesthetically pleasing. Additionally, a huge problem was that at no point were we given or able to find any information about how to reach the front desk or what the hours were. We went based off of the information circulated online, but twice throughout this process (once when trying to book, which might have prevented the problem below in regards to fireplaces), we called before 10p and were directed straight to voicemail. Additionally, there was no in-room phone, and so when we had to call the front desk, we had to look up the phone number online to call. I think that if a hotel has non-standard staffing, then there should just be clarity about what that means for the establishment. The Ugly: These were the elements that really knocked this hotel down: 1. The Fireplaces: We booked this hotel specifically because they boasted about their rooms being outfitted with gas fireplaces. Unfortunately, nowhere was it mentioned that these fireplaces do not turn on until October 15th. Therefore, we ended up paying more for a room that we would not have booked at all if we had known about this. This should be made clear before booking, especially since the cancellation policy at this establishment is so rigid. This was a major disappointment for us. 2. The Customer Service: When we arrived, our bathroom had about half a roll of toilet paper and no back up. When we started to run out our second day, we attempted to call the front desk at around 8p. We were sent straight to voicemail, where we left a message hoping for a call back. We then ended up calling the sister hotel, XV Beacon, and were told that they would call us back with more information. Eventually, they did call us back, only to tell us that because of several changes in staffing, they did not have any staff contacts. They then put us on hold for several minutes, and then our line was transferred to a different line on which we were waiting as the phone rang constantly for several minutes. After hanging up, we received another call twenty minutes later, at which point we were given two contact numbers, and left another voicemail, to no response. We never received any response back from any customer service representative, which was pretty disappointing. 3. Water bug: At one point, I walked into our kitchenette and saw a water bug crawling on the wall. Not great. Overall...I mean, I would not recommend it, but it could work for some others, given that your expectations are reasonably managed and you don't mind that you may not be able to get through to any customer service reps.

First I would like to say I have stayed at this hotel in 2018 and it was fantastic. I booked a room for September of 2020 to run the Boston Marathon. Due to Covid the race was cancelled and changed to a virtual Marathon. On May 28, 2020 I sent an email asking to cancel by room. Dustin Brown (Operations Manager) responded to my email on June 2, 2020 that my reservation has been cancelled and refunded in full. I still have not received my refund. I have been calling and emailing the hotel since June and I have been told they are behind due to Covid 19. Then the last I was told there was an issue with the Finance Department issuing the credit. On August 11, 2020 I called the hotel again and was told they can send me a check for the refund amount and they asked that I send my mailing address which I promptly did. I have not received my check yet. No one is responding to my emails now. All I know is this is a very poor way to manage a hotel. There is no excuse for not refunding my credit card. I will not stay at this hotel again and will most likely have to take the hotel to small claims court to get my money back. Beware
