I also take no pleasure in giving a bad review, in fact, this is my first review. 113 Beacon is a lovely brownstone in the heart of Back Bay; close to the Public Garden, great restaurants, shopping and tourist adventures. Our unit was 1-Front, next to the street & front entry and had a gourmet galley kitchen, hardwood floors, & much old-world charm. However, a back unit was rented to a group hosting a bachelor party, complete with a stripper. Our first night, the large group loudly partied in their unit, the halls & on the front stoop where they smoked in front of our AC. It smelled like they were smoking inside our unit. They slammed doors, yelled, and generally acted like a bunch of drunks at a Frat party. We called management at 2 AM & she promised to do something, nothing was done. Two more calls went to voice mail. We called the police at 2:30 AM. They did a drive-by but the partying continued. We called again around 3 AM and 2 cruisers w/ 4 police came and broke up the party on the front steps. The party continued all night inside their unit. Management called the next morning, apologized, & said if it happened again, she would send her "bouncer." On Sat night, the group returned about 2-3 AM & partied in their unit, again smoking on the stoop. We called the rental agent's home phone but it went to voice mail. So much for responding with the bouncer. For the same money, we could have stayed at the Marriott in Copley, had a restful sleep, and been better protected from other guests. Look elsewhere, this place was no bargain at any price.
