The Inn at St. Botolph is simply the best. Love the rooms and the ambience of this boutique hotel. The amenities are perfect for either a short stay or an extended stay. Location cannot be beat as T station is right around the corner.

Wonderful stay with family at the Inn for Thanksgiving. Rooms are immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and very quiet. We stayed in both one bedroom suite and the studios. Loved both! Fluffy white towels and robes. Steps from the Prudential in Back Bay which could not be a better location. Perfect breakfast area with everything you could need to start the day. Loved small bottles of water/ juice that you to take to the room. Small lovely gym (with more water and snacks). Key code entry to the Inn and rooms is great as you don't have to search for keys. Highly recommend.

To call St Botolph an "inn" doesn't sit quite right. My one bedroom suite felt more like a pretty ordinary AirBnB. The location is terrific -- near excellent shopping and restaurants; a lovely walkable neighborhood; and relatively tidy, functional rooms. But it fell short on other counts. I did not lay eyes on a single other human at any point during my overnight stay. (But I can assure you there were others in the building. The noisy elevator could be heard through out the night, as could the amorous couple just above me.) There was no warm welcome from anyone -- not even a note from the manager of the sort that is often left in hotel rooms. As I know Boston well and did not need assistance, it wasn't a problem. But I'm not sure I'd go back....

Dear Skifastnow1, Thank you for choosing the Inn @ St. Botolph and for taking the time to provide your feedback! We are so glad that you enjoyed out location and your room! We are sorry that we didn't get a chance to meet you! We do advertise as an edited service property, and the feel we are going for is that you are coming to your home away from home! We send out room assignments and access codes in advance so that you do not need to physically check-in, but we always hope to meet our guests when they come down for breakfast or should they need any service or assistance! If you didn't take advantage of the complimentary breakfast and never came down to the lounge, I can get why you feel that away about our service! I assure you however, had you come down you would have met one of our amazing team members who would have changed that opinion quickly! We hope that you will consider coming back the next time you are in Boston so we can prove it to you! We offer a great returning guest discount, so please reach out if you are coming back to town and we will be happy to assist you with your future reservation needs! Best Regards, Tom

I've just come back from a 5 night stay here so I could see Boston and some of the seaside towns to the north of it. It's a lovely place to stay in a really pleasant street in a lovely area. I travelled here by train from New York and arrived at Back Bay station which is no more than a ten minute walk away (and that's with a suitcase!). It's also near the subway but if you don't mind walking, you can actually walk to the Common from here and even the harbour area. There is also an amazing supermarket about 5 mins walk away. I was also able to get back to Boston Logan airport easily for my flight home. The accommodation is superb and the staff can't do enough for you, so a big thanks to them. My stay here was excellent.

This place is a treasure if you are attending a conference in Boston near the Prudential Center. I could not secure a room through the conference website so went to Trip Advisor to find an alternative, and found this wonderful place. The Inn is in a beautiful residential neighborhood just a couple of blocks walk to the Prudential Center. At first, I was a little concerned that there would not be someone on duty overnight, but this was not an issue. The staff was gracious, friendly, and very helpful. There is a well-stocked lounge with breakfast and healthy snack items and a wonderful Nespresso machine. A 7-11 was across the street for anything else you might want. Highly recommended.

Nothing but raves for this Back Bay gem. Jordan helped me with checkin and our one bedroom suite was perfect for our three night stay. The bed was super comfy and the water pressure in the shower was amazing. We loved having the kitchenette and made breakfast in our suite. More coffee pods and bagels were available downstairs in the breakfast room. And having the washer and dryer available made this stay absolutely perfect! And lots of great restaurants were a short walk away. If we come back to Boston, we’ll be back here without a doubt.

Spent two nights in a second floor corner suite. The space was good, bed was comfortable, and the rooms were clean. Some of the living room furniture could use a bit of a touch up due to chipped paint but otherwise no complaints. Self check in is an easy process, and the Inn is in an old neighborhood of beautiful brownstones but just one street over from the Prudential Center. It’s a great walking area. Quiet in the evening except for some occasional street noise and walls that aren’t entirely soundproof between rooms. Fortunately, nothing too crazy. :) We would stay here again.

Our favorite so far when staying in town. Location cannot be beat! Sweet, quiet neighborhood is just up the street from shopping, restaurants, transit. Loved our room with the corner window and little sitting area. Comfy bed, very clean kitchen and plenty of space for the two of us in the queen bed studio. We mostly did for ourselves as far as breakfast, but when we did venture further into the hotel we found fresh coffee and snacks waiting. The staff was friendly and helpful. Only issues for us were parking and first entry at hotel, but both were resolved quickly. We were lucky to score a parking space through spothero.com that allowed us entry/exit privileges the entire trip and was just a short walk from the Inn. We are admittedly getting older so weren't sure of ourselves when trying to gain entry to the Inn for the first time. It was pretty late and the door not very well lit. Thank you to the lovely young lady who rescued us :)

Very cute hotel. The room was super spacious and had a fully equipped kitchen. Breakfast could be better, the options were very limited. You could adjust the temperature of the room, but the bathroom was constantly cold, which made it hard to shower. Overall good experience, would definitely stay there again!
