Arrived at the Taj having booked it two days before. This hotel is so easy to find having taken the T from the airport (No problems even with two suitcases and only $2.50 each). Check in was extremely efficient and we were very quickly in our perfectly adequate room. This was a room overlooking Newbury rather than the Park. The hotel is the best I have stayed at in 4 visits to Boston, right on the Park, near the Common and on the corner of Arlington and Newbury.
One downside with the room was the lack of tea and coffee making facilities which I thought would be a given in such a class of hotel. This was a particular issue when, having been woken up at 7 o clock in the morning by the builders at the end of Newbury, ventured out for a tea and coffee. I would have to say that if you picked anywhere in the centre of Boston as far away from a coffee shop as you could, you would be at the Taj. My wife complained that her tea was cold when I got back to the room, but fortunately, this was drowned out by the builders who start at 7 am every morning except Sundays.
Overall a great hotel. Staff are excellent and friendly and with a few enhancements, this could easily be one of the best hotels in Boston
