I hesitate to write a review for this small, art-filled B&B right in the heart of Back Bay because I want to come back and fear it will become so popular I’ll never get back in! Meticulously renovated (but with an elevator) the rooms and...More

A wonderfully remodeled and modernized brownstone on Commonwealth Avenue. No visible sign of a hotel. Feels like an upscale boutique hotel in Paris, except for a much bigger elevator.

The difficulty of parking in this neighborhood outweighs the benefits of this hotel. It was a hassle to deal with as the streets are quite congested, and signs posted require a permit for street parking for Bay Bay Residents only. The thought of parking at...More

Yes, the Prudential Parking Garage on Boylston is your best bet—try finding a place near Lord & Taylor so you know where you parked and can find your car without getting lost (it is $42 per day).
