“The Colonnade - beyond expectations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

We recently stayed at the Colonnade hotel for two nights in December. Not only is it a great location (near a mall and T station), the hotel itself was wonderful. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. David Colella, the manager, was particularly helpful and welcoming! The restaurant on location was also very good. Overall we have no complaints and only wonderful things to say about this hotel. Our stay was simply perfect. Thank you!! We'll be sure to stay there next time we're in Boston!

It is rare to stay at a hotel and not have even the smallest complaint. My stay at the Colonnade Hotel was simply perfect, from check-in to departure and everything in between. I was greeted with warm smiles upon my arrival. The front desk staff as well as the concierge, Jerry Good, were so helpful and provided great information and suggestions for the surrounding neighborhood. The room was exceptional. It had a great view and the most comfortable bed and bedding I have ever been treated to during my travels. I will not hesitate to book my stay at the Colonnade the next time I am in Boston!

Room Tip: Request a room on the Huntington Street side of the hotel for an incredible view of the city.

We stayed overnight celebrating our 20th anniversary by visiting old haunts from when we met in college back in 1983. The Colonnade was excellent in every way. They had a midweek package that included breakfast and parking. When they heard it was our 20th they upgraded our room free of charge. Every other place I checked charged additional for parking. The food was great in the restaurant and the service top notch. I've slept in many hotels through the years. The hotel bed was probably the best I've ever slept in. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We liked the city view room best.

Colonnade is my hotel in Boston, I´ve stayed there couple of times and don't want to stay anywhere else. The location is ideal with Cheesecake Factory and Haru (for sushi lovers) just across the street.

I've stayed at The Colonade many times and have, always, had a pleasant experience.
Would like to give a huge thank you to Nuala, at the front desk, and Daniel, bell person extraordinaire!
Always helpful and friendly, they make the time there even more enjoyable.
And you can't beat the location for the Back Bay!

Stayed for 2 nights on a stopover. Great service from start to finish.
Room was very spacious with comfy beds.
We had breakfast on both mornings in Brasserie Jo and were not disappointed.

The hotel is located on busy Huntingdon, so traffic noise is to be expected. However, this does mean the hotel is located opposite the Prudential centre and the fantastic Cheesecake Factory - a firm favourite.

My reason for knocking off a star is that the room was not greatly soundproofed internally - we could hear the guy next door on his phone and turning switches on/off.

However, this would not put me off returning to the Colonnade on another visit to Boston.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor to avoid excessive road noise.
