We recently stayed at the Gryphon House hotel and were encouraged by friendliness of the staff upon arrival. Unfortunately that was the highlight of the stay. Our room was downstairs facing out onto a car park. The room was dark and unclean, particularly the rug,...More

Gryphon House was a great place to stay. The staff was wonderful. Friendly. Informative. The house is beautiful and,very comfortable. Great location just off Kenmore Square. Local dining is some of the best. Good choice for a Fenway trip.

The Sanctuary room has one double bed in a sort of alcove, slightly apart, and one single bed. So if two people can sleep in the double together, yes!
