This was hands down one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed at. Everything from the location, to the cleanliness of the room and hotel, to the excellent staff and food was excellent. The gym was also the best gym I’ve ever used at a hotel. I can’t wait to take another trip just to stay here a few days.

My husband & I stayed at the Newbury for the 2024 Boston Marathon. The room was very quiet & nice with a comfortable bed. The customer service is outstanding. All of the marathon festivities are walkable, including bus pick-up race-day morning. The only downside was there’s no bathtub. Not a star-reducer, but just know that if you’re looking for one, most rooms don’t have one. I was dying to take a post-race bath & had to settle for a shower instead.

Our room was very well kept. staff has been friendly and helpful. There was plenty of hot water unlike the four seasons where we stayed last year for the Marathon. The coffee, tea and pastries in the library were much appreciated as was the Monday morning runners breakfast. Overall it has been a lovely stay, we hope to return in the future.

jimmysV9272QW, It is heartening to know that your experience at The Newbury Boston was one worthy of your delightful comments. Your words paint a vivid image of the pristine attention our team members maintain within every guest room. Additionally, your mention of their friendly and helpful approach aligns seamlessly with the elevated service we aim to provide all who grace our lobby. Your comparison of our hot water availability, drawing upon your experience at another upscale destination, was very noted. As such, isn't it wonderful when a hot shower is not simply an expectation but celebrated? The coffee, tea, and pastries in our library, a superb sanctuary in its own right, offered a comforting gesture during your stay. Your appreciation of the bespoke Monday morning runners breakfast too, truly made my day, as the intent of this custom service is exactly for guests like you. Your desire to return in the future fills me with a sense of satisfaction and I anticipate with pleasure the opportunity to once again serve you in style. Sincerely, The Newbury Boston Management

I don’t really like to write reviews but I think needs to be addressed all the staff is great except the unprofessional valet staff who work outside . They seem to think that they own the street . I was waiting for my elderly mother who can not walk far due to lung transplant I saw my mother coming out of contessa I parked car to the side in a empty space and was greated very aggressively by the staff outside and they bang d on my window so loud that I thought a car hit me from the back . When I asked him what’s the problem he greeted with move the f out of the way. How does a staff great someone this way . I thought I was . Again I was not blocking anyone and was picking my mother from the restaurant. He than started swearing very aggressively to me . I can’t rate you as a five star since the people who work outside are so rude and aggressive . As I drove away and my mother finally got in car I saw him spit at my car

Best luxury hotel in Boston. The gym and views are fantastic as is the service. Beds are comfortable and turn down service excellent. Love the little library for morning coffee and reading. The location clearly cannot be beat as you can walk to any Boston neighborhood in under 30 minutes.
