Great location on edge of Boston Common and within easy walking distance of Freedom Trail. Rooms over looking Boston Common have spectacular views. Good service however typical big city hotel with prices to match though a good few restaurants and coffee houses nearby

Not only did the valet slice up the steering wheel on my car from driving with something sharp in his hand. I had no hot water my first night. The second day when I did I pulled the towel off the rack and the rack fell off the wall. House keeping was persistent, I was in the room. they knocked... More

Sure we could have driven into Boston from Acton for an all-day meeting on a Saturday, but we wanted to have dinner and stay in the city for a Friday night. Since it seemed the price for a night at the Taj was in the same range as most of the other Back Bay Hotels, we made a reservation on... More

This is a dated older urban hotel. It is in a great location on Newbury Street near all the shopping and fine restaurants and across the street from the park. The hotel itself is just very dated and tired. The furniture, hallways and room doors show much wear. Crystals were missing on the chandeliers which were not shiny and clean.... More

Beautiful, clean room overlooking the Boston Gardens; the view was amazing. Fall is a beautiful time of year in Massachusetts. I wasn't in my room much, but I slept well in my comfortable king bed.

We just spent a week at the Taj Boston in a room overlooking the Boston Gardens. Beautiful view in the morning and evening. Only complaint was a concierge who didn't know what she was talking about.

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.
