My first trip to Boston and I can't think of anywhere better to stay. A warm welcome from the airport staff carried through to the hotel. Welcoming reception staff, always happy to help, and first impressions of the hotel were excellent. The rooms were furnished to a high standard and spotlessley clean, as were the public areas. There is a restaurant/bar a martini bar (selling a full range of drinks) and an Irish pub. Subscribe to the Irish pub, Solas, about 2 weeks before you visit and recieve a $10 discount on food per table per visit. We ate in the pub the first night and the food was decent. Breakfast was not included for us but the lobby provided tea and coffee in the morning and bananas. If you didn't want to breakfast at the hotel, this was a welcome start to the day. Aftera cold day out (March) we returned to hot chocolate in the lobby, just what we needed.
This hotel is in the Back Bay area off Boylston Sreet. Quite a few bars and restaurants in the area and close to Fenway with some more bars. Copley T (train station) is about 1 minute walk and the Prudential Mall less than 5 minutes. If you get lost, head for the Prudential tower.
A gem of a hotel. You will enjoy your stay.
A tip would be to do the Trolley (hop on/off) tour -pickup from the Marriott foyer, which is behinf the Lenox. Get your bearings and you are away. I recommend the Quincy market in Fenuil Hall and Cheers bar. Some people say don't bother but its a decent pub and has a mock up of the set in the upstairs bar. The Hard rock cafe is behind fenuil hall also. As part of the trolley tour you get entrance to the Boston tea party museum. Well worth a visit for all ages. The actors make it fun, while you learn about the history of the revolution. Hope this helps.
