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.

I stayed here for a friend's wedding. They upgraded me to a massive suite perhaps because of my American Express. This is a great city hotel, not a resort, and you cannot beat the location. Though there are more luxurious options in Boston, I would gladly stay here again.

Hotel's Favorite
The Taj has the perfect location to see everything in Boston but also the best location for the marathon. Its so close to the bag drop you don't need to drop your bag and then really close to the bus pickup for the marathon. It's directly by the park and common with great views

Directly across the street from the spectacularly scenic Boston Gardens, The Taj was a perfect choice for my family get away. The accommodations were incredible and the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful.

Because of its great location, I've stayed at the Taj several times for business trips. I've always come away feeling a little cheated--the rooms are VERY expensive, and the facilities and service are nothing special. (My room was not ready until 4 pm on the day I checked in,

I was very dissappointed of the room, its definitely not worth $500 USD a night, i wish I would have stayed somewhere else. It´s true the hotel is renovating, but they could do much more in the rooms accomodations.
