When staying in an unfamiliar city, I'm always leery of the surroundings and safety. With the Chandler Inn this is not a concern.
After a long day of sight seeing and taking the "T" to Cambridge, we walked back from the Back Bay station to the hotel, about four blocks. Along the way we stopped for dinner at a local restaurant and then continued to the hotel, never feeling uncomfortable or threatened. The hotel is in a vibrant neighborhood with lots of bars and restaurants nearby, and blocks of beautiful row houses on tree-lined streets. One word of caution: next door to the Chandler Inn is a nice looking bar that my wife and I nearly went in to for a nightcap, until we realized it is a gay bar. Not an issue with us BUT we would have been a bit embarrassed if we had gone in!
The staff at the Chandler was a tremendous resource for local advice, very helpful and encouraging. The room itself was very well decorated in a contemporary style, but being a "boutique" hotel, it was quite small. The bathroom was so small you could nearly sit on the toilet and wash your hands at the same time. The shower, however, was a comfortably large size and all amenities offered were of high quality. The room itself was quiet and very comfortable.
If I were to visit Boston again, would I stay there? Without hesitation.
