“Historic property, modern look, great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Old building, elegant exterior IMO but some would say nondescript (I insist on elegant). Interior spaces are sleek and modern. My queen room was a good size. A few blocks from Copley Square and T stations, is in a more quiet business location. Precinct restaurant was a cool place to hang out. My colleague got no trouble asking for, and getting, a mini-fridge and microwave in his room (seems you have to ask for these nowadays, no problem for me but might be an issue if traveling with kids/family).

If you're thinking of staying here stop thinking and book already. I will come back.

We booked via priceline - which made the hotel more affordable. We stayed here for 2 nights in a queen size room. The rooms were very clean! We had a fridge unlike the other reviewers. In terms of size, we had friends staying at a neighboring hotel - and our rooms were slightly larger. I think size is expected in this city. The bathroom was slightly smaller vs. the bedroom. There was complimentary newspapers. Loews was a more modern, affordable choice vs. other hotels we saw in this area.

Green Features: the motion sensor lights in the bathroom were great. i didn't have to turn on the lights in the middle of the night.

The location is great for exploring Boston, close to Copley Square and Back Bay station. Really easy to get into Boston by foot or by subway, also handy for exploring further afield. Rooms are a well portioned, coffee maker in the room and a very comfy bed. Didn't eat in the hotel so can't comment, we had breakfast at Flour which was really good, just behind the hotel opposite the station.

We stayed here for three nights in January 2014 and loved it. It was conveniently located and the staff were really friendly and very helpful. The room we had was quite big compared to some other US city locations and was very clean and well presented. Despite the cold outside the hotel was warm and cosy and we really enjoyed our stay here. It's close to the T and there are great bars and restaurants nearby. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the Freedom Trail. The city was amazing and a must for anyone who enjoys the US. The snow gave the city a really beautiful look and although I can't wait to go back for the fall, I really did enjoy being there in the snow.

Room Tip: We were high enough up to avoid the road traffic and had a nice street view. Nothing to fault in my...

Green Features: I like the fact that the hotel is working to be green..

We stayed at Loews for 3 nights at the beginning of June, we were allowed to check in early as we arrived about 1pm. The room was a good size with nice comfy bed and large bathroom. I liked the fact they gave you proper milk cartons rather than the milk power in the rooms, and I loved the wide variety of tea available in the lounge area of the hotel. We were travelling a couple of cities on the East Coast of the US and this was my favourite hotel.
The staff were very friendly and as we had never visited Boston before they were more than happy to help out with ideas on where to go and see. The restaurant is very nice with good food and they have a bar area which spreads outside with a relaxed atmosphere.
If I visited Boston again I would definitely consider staying at this hotel again.

We stayed here for a whole week....and were more than pleased with this Hotel.Good size room and yes like others on here we had no fridge all week (but one did appear in our room the day before we left).But a great location all the same.Staff really friendly and attentive to all our needs.really good bar in the basement and if the weather is fine plenty of room to sit outside.Good Breakfasts too.....but then you would expect that from a Hotel of this type and quality
And a special mention must go out to the room maids who kept our room spotless (and i mean spotless!) through out our week.
