We have stayed at the Eliot over the years several times, the most recent of which is January 2014. When we stay here, it is like coming to the home of an old friend. The Eliot reminds us of a small, European hotel. It is a unique combination of modern conveniences with old fashion charm. How many hotels still have actual keys on brass key chains with the number on the brass plate. The suites, which we prefer are tastefully decorated and the living area is separated from the sleeping area by glass doors covered by translucent fabric. Because one of us is an early riser and the other likes to sleep, this provided perfect separation. The rooms are comfortable and quiet despite. The staff is uniformly gracious and friendly and you don't get the feeling that anyone expects a tip to provide extra service.
Several other benefits: the location on Commonwealth Avenue allows one to stroll through the historic Commonwealth Park, an elegant strip of grass, trees and benches that is flanked on either side by some of the best historic houses in the city. Also there are some great running routes directly from the hotel which the hotel is thoughtful enough to lay out on a map. Last, but certainly not least is the fact that the hotel accepts dogs, something our two well behaved Westies appreciate. We take extra care to make sure that when we leave the room no one would even know that dogs had been there. The hotel certainly doesn't have to do this, and we recognize and appreciate the fact that they do.
The Eliot is quintessential old Boston and more like coming to the home of an old friend than to a hotel.
