We're locals who live north of Boston, so we stay in the city from time to time and have stayed at many of the hotels downtown. This is by far one of our favorites! You can't beat the location...right in the heart of the city. The hotel is hooked onto two major shopping centers, the Prudential and Copley, and you don't have to go outside to get to either, especially nice in bad weather! There are tons of shops and restaurants in both centers, as well as on Boylston Street and Newbury Street, which are within walking distance. There are also several "T" stations close by that will take you anywhere in the city and the Duck Tours leave from right across the street. Some places like Fenway, the Public Garden, and the Common are even walking distance if you don't mind a little longer walk. Another bonus...a Shaw's full service market right across the street from the hotel. The rooms have small refrigerators, so perfect to stock up on snacks & drinks. There's also a little gift shop in the lobby.
The room was spacious and bright with a nice view of the South End neighborhood. The bathroom was smaller but adequate and the bed was very comfortable with down pillows. We were delighted to find a really nice gym on the 5th floor. Pretty large by hotel standards with everything from free weights, treadmills, to fit balls. Some of the equipment has a city view and is nice, up to date stuff. There is also a big pool area connected, complete with full service locker rooms (lockers, showers, etc). This gym/pool area was a great bonus by our standards and something you don't come across very often except at big resorts. Just wish we had more time to use the facilities.
If you have a sweet tooth or need a fun gift to take home, head over to Burdick's chocolates on Clarendon St. Try the hot or iced chocolate and one of their delectable pastries. Max Brenner's on Boylston also has fun chocolates/gifts and also has a full service restaurant...both are walking distance. Champions sports bar is in the hotel if you don't want to leave. Basic pub food and big screen TVs everywhere, even one the size of a movie screen. Ladies, leave your husbands there and head for the shops! The Boston Marathon Memorial is in walking distance from this hotel, right in Copley Square and definitely worth a visit. We had just stayed at the Ritz not long ago and decided that we liked the Marriott better...and was a much better value. Would definitely stay again!
