Encore was everything I hoped it would be from the reviews I had read on Trip Advisor prior to making my booking. We had booked the Albee room and the view from the balcony was a very welcoming sight having just stepped off a transatlantic flight. What a view! The room itself was extremely comfortable and we particularly loved the bed sheets. So soft. I tend to always need to wear earplugs in hotels but we never heard a sound in Encore at night. It was extremely quiet and our room was very private on the top floor of the house.
Reinhold was a fantastic host and the breakfasts that he puts on in the morning are wonderful. Each day a menu is left in your room for the following morning and you can choose as much or as little from it as you like. I would particularly recommend the granola with fresh fruit and yogurt. It was a great way to start the day. I also tried the croissants and scones that Reinhold gets in from the local bakery and they were fantastic. The croissants were better than ones I've eaten in Paris! My girlfriend was particularly fond of the sticky buns as well. My only regret at breakfast was not trying the coffee until our last day. Coffee lovers won't be disappointed. It's the best coffee I've ever tasted.
As for the location, Encore is less than a 10 minute walk away from the Prudential Center where you can catch the T to other areas of the city. We found Boston to be a great walking city and if you're happy to walk you can even get to Fenway Park in about 20 or 25 minutes from Encore. The area the B&B is in is a very nice, quiet residential street that we were very comfortable walking around in during the day and at night.
Encore feels like a home away from home and I will definitely return when I go back to Boston. Hopefully I won't have long to wait.
