We stayed at the Loews Boston for 4 nights in early August on a vacation. The location was good – about a block or two to Copley & public transportation. It’s also only a couple blocks from the Amtrak Back Bay Station. It was an easy walk to Boston Common, shopping/dining around the Back Bay Area & the Prudential Center.
We stayed in a Deluxe King room, and our room was nicely appointed with a very comfortable bed. The hotel also offers free Wifi, super comfy bathrobes & a mini-fridge, which I found to be handy. The room was quiet, and we didn’t hear much noise besides the odd police/ambulance siren at night. My main complaint with the room was with the bathroom. The vanity was pretty, but it was super tiny with no room to store any of my toiletries. There aren’t any shelves either, so I had to keep all my toiletries in a drawer by the TV & keep going back and forth to grab things, which was annoying. Also, I was talking on the hotel room cordless phone on two different evenings, and both times the battery died mid-conversation (only about 15-20 minutes long).
Housekeeping was normally very good, however 2 out of 4 days we had to call them to bring us coffee cups and pods for the coffee maker since they hadn’t replaced them from the day before. All staff we encountered at the hotel were very friendly and helpful.
Overall, a pretty hotel in a nice location. A few minor issues, but I would stay here again.
