Stayed at the Chandler Inn May 17-20 and it was the perfect 'base' to soak up the Boston atmosphere. It's nestled in the beautiful Back Bay area, right in a residential neighborhood and is walkable to all kinds of restaurants, and the "T" Back Bay Station for transportation.
The rooms are on the smaller side, but I already knew that by reading other reviews.
I actually got to see both the 'standard' rooms and the 'boutique' rooms. We didn't feel the need to pay the higher price for the boutique, since we were just there a couple days siteseeing around Boston before traveling down to Cape Cod for a few more days.
But as it turned out, the internet did not work in our standard room so they upgraded us to a boutique at no charge. Yes, both are pretty small rooms!
You got to give up space for location sometime.
I also highly recommend the Old Town Trolly tour.
Even though you can walk to many of the sites from the hotel, the trolly lets you see much more, and really gives you a feel for the city. You get 2 consecutive days riding, and can get off and on at any of the stops as often as you like!
It rained our 2nd day, so it sure came in handy. We visited the New England Aquarium - another MUST - We were there 4 hours, and not because of the rain.
It's an awesome aquarium!!!
Price, accessability, cleanliness, friendliness and helpful staff
Small rooms, but adequate
