4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

When I first started looking into Boston hotels I went into sticker shock since the prices were comparable to what I would have paid in New York City. I looked at different locations and thought the Back Bay area was the best area to stay in since it was conveniently located to an event. The hotel is across the street... More

Friendly staff and a spotless, comfortable room, I would highly recommend this hotel to any of my friends. Location was great, access to public transit immediately in front of the hotel, shopping right across the street, and within walking distance of many of the top sights in Boston. The bad news: the restaurant was expensive for the quality of the... More

Great experience, from the dining suggestions from Christine to the friendly service of the bell men Hilary and Lanis, it was an all around great experience! This was a great location and it was very convenient for my conference.

Upon arriving at the hotel, I was warmly welcomed by Norman, who opened my car door and showed me the way to the front desk. After checking in, I decided to go on a run down the Charles River and back to the Colonnade. And who was waiting for me with a towel and two water bottles when I returned?... More

Found the location of the hotel right for our our plans whilst staying in Boston, easy walking distance of most places. Room & bathroom clean, coffee, milk, toiletries replaced daily, have to say though china mugs would have been nicer than cardboard cups in the room. Complimentary water each day, much needed & appreciated. With 2 beds in the room,... More

Lovely spacious rooms with comfortable beds, great pillows and a great power shower. Also the best hairdryer of the holiday ( very important to me).

Collonade hotel in downtown Boston is centrally located and within walking distance to most major attractions in the area. Indeed, if this is your first time visit to Boston, it is a most pedestrian friendly and compact city. 'Walking distance' is of course relative to the individual but to give some perspective, about 15-20 minutes to the Public Garden/Boston Common;... More

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.
