“Beautiful Hotel in the Back Bay Section”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

My husband and I stayed here from July 3-5. This hotel is gorgeous, modern and increadibly clean. The room (king sized bed) was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The location of the hotel was perfect. We were right across the street from the Prudential Center and within walking distance of Boylston Street and Newbury street. We did a trolley tour which we thoroughly enjoyed. We had breakfast and lunch at the hotel and thought the food was outstanding. We were able to have breakfast on the rooftop one morning which was gorgeous. We would definitely not hesitate to stay here again.

My husband and I stayed for 1 night to celebrate my husband's birthday and anniversary. We had an exceptional stay. We were upgraded upon checkin, the reception staff wished my husband a happy birthday/ anniversary and even left chocolate truffles with turndown service. We enjoyed the afternoon and breakfast at the pool during our stay; food was very good. Walkable to many areas including Backbay station, Boylston Street, Fenway Park (even for being 8 months pregnant). I would definitely stay again and next time longer.

My daughter and I experienced the most enjoyable and kind staff ever in a hotel. Everyone from the doorman, front desk, concierge, in-room service, housekeeping, pool staff went above and beyond expectation to ensure our stay was a memorable one. The cleanliness in the room, the pool, and the hotel was impeccable. We had indeed royalty treatment. Without a doubt The Colonnade is our hotel of choice when staying in Boston. Thumbs up for a job well done!

Room Tip: High floor have a better view. They offer ceiling to floor windows. Totally spectacular.

My husband and I stayed for 7 nights 26 June to 3 July. From check in to check out the service was perfect. A very special mention has to go to the bar staff especially for our last three nights but also the first 4 nights perfect gin and tonics. We will definitely will come back and recommend to all our friends.

No idea why I got a suite, but this room had a living room that seated 7, dining table for 4,wet bar, separated bathroom with a bidee, and spacious bedroom.
What a luxurious stay!
Only complaint was the shower needed updating.

We stayed 3 night at the Colonnade in Boston. The service was great from start to finish. The room was well appointed and the staff were only too happy to help. We would definitely stay again the next time we visit and we will be back

Arrived late around 11pm to check in. Front desk staff were very welcoming and got to my room quickly. Headed down to Jo Brasserie for a glass of wine and a snack. The hotel was very busy for the 5 nights I was there. Concierge very helpful and everyone had a can-do attitude. I was on the 11th floor which is also where the roof top pool is. Since the public is able to enjoy the pool, I would suggest better security on the floor itself- as a woman travelling alone on business I would have preferred to be on another floor. Great location- walking distance to may sights, shopping and restaurants. Enjoyed walking the leafy streets behind the hotel full of brownstones and residential parks. Room service quick and friendly. Air conditioning quite loud but got used to it. Other than that, a lovely stay.
