This property is well located, being ON the Common, near Back Bay/Boylston and between Historic Boston and Cambridge. As you would expect for a Ritz property, it's upscale with terrific rooms and a nice restaurant with a separate bar. The staff are welcoming and well trained to remember you and call you by name. Those are the upsides. The downs - very pricey, no store in hotel (although there IS a Rite-Aid/CVS establishment around the corner), and the lobby is singularly unimpressive. Internet is an over-priced extra. The breakfast is extra and some of the waitstaff surly (maybe under different management than the hotel). The street in front is a wind tunnel. Good property for business or romance, I would not recommend for a family vacation or a stay with friends.
