We were in Boston to visit our daughter and I had found an unbelievably inexpensive rate for the Taj 3 months out from our visit. Our flight arrived on a Saturday morning so early that we were at the check in desk around 11:30. The staff found us an available room so we could check in at that time. The... More

My husband and I just returned from a long weekend in Boston. We had not stayed at the Taj before but will again. It is perfectly located across the street from the Boston Public Gardens and near the green line of the T (subway) so that we could easily walk to or ride the subway to see friends, have dinner,...

We loved our stay here, as it felt like a boutique hotel in spite of its size. All of the little touches - both within the room, with the morning complimentary coffee and pastry service, the pleasant front desk experience and especially the maid service - were excellent. Location - right on the park and on Newberry street - was... More

Having booked the Taj on the basis of reputation, it was disappointing to find more than a faded elegance ( it used to be The Ritz), but simply a hotel that needs renovation. The service was ordinary, and the bell staff demanding and one bordering on intimidating for tips, although not deserved. It is in a great location, but that... More

We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone who was visiting Boston. We want to thank the hotel for the wonderful welcome we received for our family party. We had a 50th birthday and got a wonderful celebratory cake plate, and the wedding couple had a lovely reception with flower petals on the bed and chocolate covered strawberries (and in... More

We had a great weekend overnight at the Taj. Great customer service, and an excellent location. The beds were a bit bouncy, almost making you feel like you were on a boat. (the full size doubles) The bathrooms are a bit on the small side, but have been redone and are very nice. At the price we paid (~$300) it... More

We had a fabulous anniversary stay at the Taj - our first time in Boston. This really is a well established well run hotel - everything works perfectly from the speed of bellboys, check in and concierge services. Beautifully decorated and appointed. A special mention to the bellboys - we arrived by taxi and our bags were on route to... More

The best location but quite expensive. Staff very friendly. Excellent view from the site overlooking the garden. Should always have tea and coffee station in the room but you have to ask for it. Enjoyed my stay.

I cannot tha in the Taj and Betsida enough. I proposed to my girlfriend in Boston and they have made it an absolutely magical experience. I'd been swapping messages with Betsida for a few weeks, and she's been absolutely lovely and supportive during this stressful time! The room had rose petals spread everywhere, chocolate dipped strawberries and Betsilda helped me... More

I recently stayed at the Taj. The hotel is at an amazing location. The staff was incredibly helpful in helping with dinner reservations, transportation, etc. The staff was also very friendly. I will definitely plan on saying there whenever I'm in Boston!

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.
