Lenox is simply an excellent hotel. It preserves its original historical charm combined with every amenity one could wish for. It is distinguished in its authentic and unique personality, as opposed to faceless chain hotels. The location is very convenient, there are more than enough restaurants within several minutes' walk, catering to every taste and occasion. The biggest mall in the area, Prudential Shops, are right around the corner. The 50th floor observation deck, the SkyWalk, is an added benefit of the mall.
Boston Museum of Fine Arts is within 20 minutes walk, and so is Isabella Stuart Gardner museum (25 minutes).
The lobby - elegant, yet cozy; the charming fireplace creates a sense of intimacy and home-style comfort. The elevators are efficient, we never had to wait longer than one minute. The rooms are spacious, well-equipped, the size of the closet (two plush robes are supplied) is more than impressive. The bathroom is of a good size too, the toiletries are well selected and of a very good quality; there is even a mouthwash included, something we hardly encountered before in our voyages.
The noise level is good too, not the best but quite adequate. The service is very attentive and friendly.
Coffee and light snacks are offered for free in the morning, but we would rather recommend a satisfying breakfast at the City Table, the prices are quite affordable.
The Wi-Fi is perfect. One does not need a user name or password. On Android devices, one may be prompted to sign in, and select 'Agree' and 'Connect.'
The charging outlets are conveniently located at the desk and on the side of the dressing tables, including a USB outlet.
The only possible negative thing is the bathroom temperature. We stayed three cold nights in March, and for some reason the room temperature doesn't extend to the bathroom.
Highly recommended. Five stars, enough said.
