This hotel was in the midst of everything, shopping, restaurants etc. Highlighting the service shown by staff, Orlando Vega. He explained the rules of the hotel ground (and covid19 rules), he gave great suggestions and assisted in places to dine, shop while in the area and made my bday extra special with a congratulated note on behalf of The Colonnade. The room was clean and I was very satisfied. Highly recommend and for my next visit to Boston, I will be staying here again when the rooftop pool/bar is opened.

Stayed here with my son for a college visit. Staff was friendly and helpful. There was an AC vent in the hall that caused a vibration in our room and Orlando sent someone immediately to turn it off and offered a room change if it could not be remedied. Convenient location to everything. Felt clean and safe during Covid, and the breakfast options offered were better than anything I’ve had at other hotels during these strange times. Parking was included when I booked on the hotel website but that may be a limited offer. Would definitely stay here again!

We traveled to Boston having decided to leave our rural northern New York "covid bunker" and finally travel somewhere. We wanted to go somewhere within driving distance as we decided to invite our two adult children along. We chose Boston because we lived in the city many years ago. Having some familiarity with hotels in Boston, we chose location first and then searched for "deals"...which we knew there would be plenty. We struck gold with the Colonnade Hotel. Located across from the Prudential Center and in the Back bay as well as at a "T" stop, it was perfect. The staff was extremely friendly upon check-in and throughout our stay. The rooms were well appointed and very clean, spacious and comfortable. The continental breakfast, or "coffee and muffins" was fine first thing in the morning. We were disappointed "Lucie!" the restaurant was not open, but completely understood due to COVID. We took note of the number of pets staying at the hotel, for anyone wanting to travel with pets...they obviously accept pets and are very accommodating. We paid $145 per night in October- over the long weekend 10/10-10/12 and thoroughly enjoyed the city ..thanks to good weather and company! We would definitely recommend this hotel and will return in the future.

We stayed overnight the first day The Colonnade reopened. I was concerned in terms of them ramping up for the first day. No need! Very safe in terms of cleanliness. The pool area was socially distanced and it was wonderful to get drinks served at our lounge chairs. In addition, the service was over the top in terms of assistance with parking, extra items needed in the room, and leaving our luggage. A special shout out to Orlando Vega and Chris Howe - very helpful and so pleasant to work with. All the employees attitudes were upbeat.

My wife and I stayed here while visiting friends in Boston this weekend. From start to finish it was an amazing experience. The hotel is well located (easily accessible from the highway), well kept, and the staff was amazing. Additionally, the rooftop pool is a great place to hang out and enjoy some sun. Would recommend to anyone who is visiting the area.
