The Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common is well situated to maximize a visit to one of the most historic localities in the United States. As one would expect from the name and address, this is a luxury hotel. My wife and I, upon presentation of our credentials, were quickly checked in and following introductions from Tamara at the front desk, accompanied by the friendly Bellman and our luggage to the room. After storing clothes and familiarizing ourselves with the room we partook of the Concierge lounge where Brian, Ryan and Jessica introduced us to the libations and delicious Hors d`oeuvre which were changed almost nightly during the stay. Later, we found the room was elegant and quiet for a relaxing first night as was predicted by Julia, Rooms Executive. Management and staff ensure delivery of every expectation one might have of finer accommodations; from the room, to the food and even beyond the confines of the hotel itself. This traveler made a day trip to New Hampshire but the return trip which could have ended poorly instead became an introduction to Boston’s latest reconfiguration of its street system. Travel maps and GPS systems prove inadequate when subjected to Boston’s one-way streets. Enter Ritz’s Concierge, Adriatic. A cell phone call and it became very apparent Adriatic was totally familiar with the city’s one-way streets. In short order he had us at the front door and in a much happier state of mind. We found that Adriatic and his other half, Andrew were knowledgeable of all the best that Boston has to offer! This is the kind of client-vendor relationship that constantly reinforces this traveler to choose the Ritz-Carlton for hotel accommodations. Mr. Rajesh Khubchaandani, General Manager is to be commended for the courtesies extended by his staff from the doorman to those named in this review.
