The CCB is located on Commonwealth Ave, and less than a block from the Boston Public Garden. I appreciated the location and the pretty boulevard in a residential area. This is a classy looking brownstone, with elegant furnishings. The hotel was full when we stayed, yet so quiet. There is not a constant bustle of staff and guests. The service... More

This place may not be for everyone, but it was perfect in so many ways. I stayed in a single room with shared bath and I was a bit apprehensive but my room was so comfortable with a writing desk and a bookcase with books. A comfortable easy chair with reading lamp. The bathroom was so clean with marble floor... More

Excellent location, nice old fashioned decor. Service ok. A bit of attitude or coolness. Continental breakfast only. No parking, which is very inconvenient. Zero help with bags. Air conditioner in the room worked well. Overall atmosphere a bit cramped.

This is a fine small hotel situated in the Back Bay Area, on the shady Commonwealth avenue, which I consider the loveliest street of downtown Boston. I wouldn't call it exactly a b&b. Rather it is an elegant, classical style boutique hotel, albeit with a minimal number of staff. It is an excellent relatively affordable choice for classical architecture/ atmosphere... More

Handsome common areas and staircases, antiques in every room, pleasant breakfast area, ideal location on Commonwealth Avenue: a little more in the way of comfort and you would have a hit. The mattress in my single room was old stiff and the reading chair was hard on the back. This was a significant consideration since there was (quite rightly for... More

I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful place. It is beautiful, the staff is nice and you feel right at home. They have a nice breakfast each morning from 7:45-10am, and coffee, water, and fresh baked cookies throughout the day. It also couldn't be in a nicer location! It is really a gem. Thank you to the owner... More

Great place to stay. Unlike most B&B's this has an elevator. Didn't get a chance to try breakfast due to early meetings. Rooms are clean and quiet. Shared a washroom and never has an issue with access or cleanliness.

I stayed overnight at the College Club of Boston before catching an international flight out of Logan Airport. The location was convenient to the Back Bay Station I arrived on by train. They let me store my luggage the next morning while I explored Boston before heading to Boston airport. I was given clear instructions to enter the building, greeted... More

Very quaint and histsorically decorated. At first, my husband cringed when there was no TV in the room, but we weren't there to stay and watch TV. There is one available in the delightful breakfast room. Our room was on the street, and we did hear street noise. We will stay there again, just making sure our room is in... More

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.
