First time stay at a Taj hotel and was pleased with the level of service. The rooms aren't brand new (last refresh was perhaps 2002 I believe) but they are decorated in a traditional taste and are clean and fully serviceable. I stayed in a junior suite with my wife and 14 month old daughter. The room was perfect for us as it allows our daughter to sleep in a crib in the living room while we can relax in the bedroom (separated by a door) without worrying about waking her up or having difficulty putting her to sleep. We ate breakfast in the cafe both mornings - great food, though reasonably pricey (as is the case at this level of property) though we had a food & beverage credit which made the meals almost free. Overall service level throughout was great, quick with luggage and other basic requests. Our daughter evidently charmed the staff in the cafe at breakfast as she was waited on by several staff members, who provided her with a complimentary plate of blueberries and continually cleaned up the floor of the mess a toddler is wont to make.
Overall, the price of the room was reasonable for a suite and the thrown in extras when booking through an agent improved the value equation somewhat. While there are definitely cheaper alternatives in Boston, for the level of service and if you need the extra room that a suite provides, it would be difficult to find a more inexpensive property that provided the same level of quality. Definitely plan on staying again when I visit family in the area unless the prices were much higher than what I paid to stay over Labor Day weekend.
