“Nice little gem in the Back Bay area, Moderately priced. You can't go wrong!!”
Reviewed June 3, 2010

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!!!

Pros:
Price, accessability, cleanliness, friendliness and helpful staff
Cons:
Small rooms, but adequate

The hotel is a chic boutique offering two blocks from the back bay station. Parking is off site, but not extremely difficult. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were nicely updated with AC (with remote), flat screen TV's, nice sheets, and modern bathroom. Although the rooms are small, they are perfect if you don't plan on spending a lot of time there. GREAT CHOICE OVERALL, I would go back.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel with a couple friends over Memorial Day weekend and were very pleased. The hotel is in a great area that is easy to get to, navigate, it is in easy walking distance of the Orange line T Back Bay station, all of Back Bay and is on quiet and pleasant street. The entire hotel is nicely decorated and the rooms are superb. For a busy vacation where you wouldn't spend much time in your hotel I highly recommend you stay here. The beds a comfortable, the windows open fully to take advantage of the breeze and there is AC if you need it. We stayed in a corner room on the 7th floor and never needed the AC and the views were great. The bathroom was the only drawback and it was quite small, however for our needs it was adequate. Everything was clean, the people were pleasant and we will definitely stay here for our next trip to Boston.

The location is superior - walking distance to Calderwood Pavilion for great theatre - as well as restaurants and shopping. The south end is a fantastic place to wander and people watch - Chaldner Inn makes it wasy to enjoy all the amenities of the areas. The staff is friendly and helpful, room are lavishly appointed and cozy.

Loved this place. My room was super clean and comfortable, with cool stuff like free wifi, ipod charger, flat screen TV and a very comfy bed. Loved the full length mirror when getting ready to go out! There's no AC in the room (well, I couldn't find it), and Boston does get humid, so plan to shower, etc. early or your room could get sauna-like. Helpful, friendly, knowledgeable staff with a sense of humor! Yummy coffee drinks in the lobby. The location is ideal, just a couple blocks from the T with many shops/eateries nearby. The Fritz, next door, has the coolest servers/bartenders and the best Bloody Mary you could ever dream of.

Staff very helpful. Room decent but small - bathroom really minimal (shower doesn't really close and water can get onto main part; tiny space). Internet decent but a bit tough to connect to initially.
