We stayed here over a weekend. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in the door. The Penthouse has large windows with great views. Overall the apartment is fairly spacious and bright. The kitchen and pantry are well appointed with glassware, plates, wine glasses, etc. There are three bedrooms in the second level one is small but comfortable enough. This... More

Really good location and close to most main attractions in boston. Flat was ideal for our two kids and ourselves and a lot better than sharing a hotel room. Flat was compact with two small bedrooms, small kitchen living room and toilet. All rooms were clean and comfortable. We would use this again if staying in boston

We stayed here in July 2015. Located directly beneath the Penthouse, this apartment is noisy. There is no insulation between the floors and we could hear every footstep that was taken in the penthouse overhead, along with conversation. Plus there was a pulsating buzz (likely caused by outside air conditioner compressors), that resonated through the bed, making sleep very difficult!... More

we rented a 3 bedroom/2 bath unit at 113 Beacon St. The location is great BUT, 2 of the beds consisted of mattresses laid on a raised floor. Our husbands could not even stand up!

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
