Another late review but better late than never!
We stayed at the Back Bay Hotel for 5 nights in December for a pre Christmas break. I notice it has now moved into the Loews Hotel Chain. The rooms were a good size with a comfortable bed and the bathroom was also a good size and very clean. The hotel corridors were quiet and we didnt hear loads of doors banging etc. We couldnt hear any noise from the room next door. The lobby & reception area is small but functional and they served hot drinks in the lounge area each morning. Cuffs Irish bar is very warm & cosy and the food we ate in there was of a good standard. All the staff in the hotel were polite & courteous and we encountered no customer service issues. We walked the freedom trail in the rain and it was fun all the same.
Boston is very Christmassy in December and thats what we like. Lots of tree lights and decorations, carol singers, store displays etc. There is also an ice rink on the common in Winter. If you're a pet lover like me, make sure you visit Fish & Bone pet boutique on Newbury St. Its a dream of a shop to get something special for your furry friend.
All in all, liked everything about this hotel. Location was handy for Copley Square, all the main shopping areas and the historic trail & there is a train station round the corner. We caught a train to Salem and it was no hassle at all. There are plenty restaurants / fast food outlets / street food & Starbucks in the area so not short of choice when going out to eat.
We got a really good deal on this hotel on a package with Virgin so felt that we definitely got value for money. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone considering a trip to Boston. For a short break, location is key and this hotel definitely ticks the box without breaking the bank.
