My husband ran the Boston Marathon, and we stayed at The Taj Boston for 3 nights. They told us that our room had been "ugraded" through American Express. If our room was an upgrade, I'd love to know what the other rooms were like! The bed seemed clean, which is a BIG plus, but the carpet was horrendously dirty, which was pretty horrible, since I didn't want to walk on it in bare feet, and then into a clean bed! When the cleaning woman was in some of the other rooms with the door open...I looked and the carpeting was dirty in them as well. I also had to call each day to have them deliver more towels. When we first got there, there were 2 towels. Then I called and they brought me up some really nice BIG towels. Then the next day, they put in one small towel...and I had to call them again for some of the big towels! It was really weird. Also, the way that the bathroom is set up, there wasn't any place to put items such as makeup, hairblower, etc.
The people in the dining room were actually pretty darned nasty. The food was okay, but the people serving just seemed so unhappy. Don't know what the problem was. Also, if you ask them for hot water (I brought my own tea bags because I only like one kind of tea)...they will still charge you $4.50.
To say something nice: It had a good location on a trendy street across from a beautiful park.
