Great location if you want to stay in the Back Bay Area. Clean rooms and linens. Staff was attentive and quick with requests for more towels etc. Got a great deal on the rate through a promotion on KAYAK, under $200 a night for a holiday weekend.
Very spacious rooms, great location next to restaurants (a lot of them), shopping, transportation, you name it. Kind of too big. Lobby was filled with tourists and flight attendants, just really massive hotel. I prefer boutique hotels.
Loved the location and the view from my room. Overlooking the river and right next to fun shopping and wonderful cafes.
Ist should be normal to use WLAN for free. Noisy room next to elevator.
Cleanliness and accessibility of the hotel Elevators. levators were too busy and the wait was too long.
All in all it was an okay stay but there was an insect in the ice,no refrigerator in the room, and we had a very loud neighbor at 2 in the morning.
Friendly and helpful staff Parking at $52 is a complete rip off and makes the value of hotel not worth it
View with construction........no toothbrush, toothpaste, Q-tips, mouthwash, map at a glance of the hotel and to
Good price and clean and friendly service.
It was a wonderful experience. Very quiet and extremely friendly desk attendants as well as valet service. Valet parking needs to clarify outdoor signs.. I originally thought it was $50 per night, not just one payment.
I like the proximity of the hotel to the Hynes Convention Center, and the variety of food and retail stores available. And the presence of the chapel in the Prudential center was a very pleasant surprise! The staff that checked me in. She was on the snarky side. After a long drive to Boston and attending the conferences for the whole day, I want to get checked in as soon as possible and get some rest. I unknowingly stepped into the line of the "preferred guest", and she sarcastically pointed that out to me. That was not a very good first impression on the staff and the hotel, as far as I was concerned.
Great greeting at the Spg counter.
We were upgraded to a corner room on the 36th floor with an incredible panoramic view of the Charles River and the city of Boston. We were two guys gong to a red sox game and even though I had called ahead to request two twin beds, we were given a room with a king bed and fold out chair.
Lovely hotel. Elevator system very efficient. Rooms very spacious. Noisy neighbors. Called front desk and they didn't seem to do anything.
The amenities, the restaurants, the staff, the rooms were all very nice. I was very upset with the fact that my room had no internet access other than paying $13 to $17 a day. I am sure when I made my reservation through Kayak that in the description of the room it read that internet access was included. I called the concierge desk but they were of no help to me. As nice as my stay was, I would not stay at this hotel again nor would I recommend it. The elevators were a mess during my stay too. Everyone staying there was upset and complaining about the incredibly long wait times.
the view was the best. Have to get private parking, costed same as my stay at the hotel. waited for 1 hour and made 5 calls to get brushes.
It is in the Copley Plaza and as such closed to every thing and like other hotels in Boston, too expensive for what one gets in return, but this one was less expensive. Though Internet was available, only at exorbitant price; amenities in the room, none; one plain bottle of water was $7.50, though we had a nice view to the street, still the room was not cozy, rather detached , impersonal and with white all around gives the sensation one is in a hospital and it is sickening. no night reading lights. In the middle of night to much lights moving to the room frm out side.. It is clear one is not at home!
Located in large shopping mall in center of town. Very clean and relatively comfortable. Water bottle in room cost $7.50. Elevators very slow on occasion. Very old TV system with limited HD channel selection.
Elevators are a disaster, unless you love waiting. No free wifi in the rooms (what year is this????). No fridge in rooms (what year is this???)
the room was very clean,great view of the city and the bed was fantatic.will stay again
I like the location in the back bay. We're comfortable there because we have stayed there so many times Elevators are a little slow and packed
U arrived early in the day and they checked me into a lovely room.
I think the hotel feels too old.
Whether it was a restaurant reservation, flight reservation change or room change to accommodate my adult daughter and my stay, there was no detail that the wonderful front desk staff couldn't accomplish with ease and grace.
Very comfortable rooms and very nicely decorated, in a warm, personal style rather than ultra-modern, standar hotel decoration. Location is very convenient, restaurants, shops and tourist attraction within walking distance. Nice and serviceable people.
Small and quiet, yet well apportioned. The restaurant was spectacular No on site Health Club
Very romantic boutique hotel. Great location for metro use. Wonderful restaurants and shops in close walking distance. Will always stay here when I return No.
large comfortable suite in a good location paying extra for parking and loud air conditioning unit
Great location. Beautiful lobby. Wonderful staff. Not enough light in the room. No coffee service in the lobby.
Location was excellent! Our shower head was spraying onto the ceiling and wall. It made puddle in our bathroom.
Yet another fine experience at The Colonnade! Comfortable rooms, great staff, Rooftop Pool and a Rubber Duck!!! Highly recommend!
beds were comfy room was so dirty
- Location - Rooms were nice - Price was reasonable - We stayed there partly because of the rooftop pool, but they sold so many "day passes" on the weekends, that hotel guests like us couldn't get a chair. It was an amenity that they sold right out from under us. Boo!
The bell man Lanis, was wonderful. He was funny and eager to help me. He gave good advice and great recommendations
The staff was very friendly and eager to make our stay as pleasant and comfortable as they could. The rooms were very comfortable. and quiet. The kids really had a good time in the pool. I found a bobby pin in the bathroom that didn't belong to us. We ran out of shampoo and conditioner. There was no soap holder in the bathroom. The soap bars were too small for the wire holder There were no hand bars in the tub enclosure that an older person,such as myself, could hold on for support while leaning over to wash their feet.
Very clean and comfortable
Easy to get to many places. Wonderful room double beds and separate table and chairs. We were on college visits, close to T station, shopping and even a visit to the Boston Public Library. Staff was very attentive.
Luxurious rooms Well equipped Nice ammenities
Large bed. Excellent view. Robes were comfortable. Location was amazing. Walls were thin.
The location is good. Walkable to many attractions and restaurants. T stop right in front. They didn't have our room ready at the check in time. The sink was clogged with what looked like old vomit. The service was slow. The rooftop pool is tiny as is the area. I definitely wouldn't pay all that money to stay there.
Staff was very attentive. Great gym! No indoor pool :-(
There was a mistake in our reservation dates. The front desk staff was so rude and apathetic about it, we cancelled our return stay with them. Neither one said they were sorry about the mix up, never smiled, kept saying they were totally booked — we had been walking in the rain from the bus and obviously needed help. Customers ultimately decide who receives their money!
this hotel is located conveniently to everything we wanted to see, tours, Red Sox game, good food, quiet, comfortable and safe.
What a fantastic Hotel. Staff were Brilliant.Best Hotel I ever Stayed in. Would never say a bad word about this Hotel.
yes it was good yes it was good
excellent service, bright spacious hotel, ideally located near tourist attractions & shops, very quiet hotel
The hotel was spotless and very comfortable, and the staff were very helpfull Felt it was a bit overpriced, and a bit far out of the city
very friendly staff, good exercise room facilities: would have liked a regular coffee maker in the room or at least a lot more packets of coffee for the machine in the room. bathroom was a little small but adequate.
The location, loved the views, easy access to all attractions. Found a dirty sock and hair grips lying on the floor
Lovely amenities: pool/hot tub in the fitness center was very clean, cotton robe in the closet was a nice touch, and the infused water in lobby made for a refreshing start of the day. No included breakfast and subpar in-room coffee. There is a cafe in the lobby but by that time, I was ready to explore elsewhere.
Big bedroom, confortable bed and pillows. Staff very helpfull. Good location, near the subway. Just the price of the WIFI in the room. But you can go in the business center and it's free.
The comfort,cleanliness and good location for ammenities including easy transport (for areas of local and historical interest) and for good resturants etc. no
Hotel didn't have my reservation that I made through Kayak and the staff was not helpful in resolving it
Feel like I found a gem! Great location, very comfortable, good value. We loved having lunch at the Roost the day we arrived and dinner a couple of nights was excellent. And the Patisserie!!
Clean, new, and close to Back Bay activities. My colleagues stated at the Mandarin a block away but I booked late for a small percentage of the price. Breakfast starts at 7:30.
It was very clean and convenient, with a very friendly staff. It was a very traditional atmosphere with a good complimentary breakfast. Unfortunately, I lost an expensive alarm clock on Saturday evening between 7 pm and 10 pm. I was in 204 and I have no idea how it could have disappeared from the room.
croissants/view from room/location
Excellent location on full of shops street, near wonderful Commonweath street, Prudential center and Trinity Church, nice wide and convinient rooms I suppose, a bit thin walls - audibility in the rooms is higher than normal
the location was not well signposted
I love a good bed and breakfast. While the buffet style breakfast is simple, it is all you can eat and delicious: French toast, mixed fruit, scrambled eggs, sausage, croisants, orange juice, tea, coffee... mm mm good.
Peter Dangelo was great and extremely helpful. Kudos!
Very comfortable, clean room. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Location was outstanding.
Perfect position and really nice room
location 2 flights of stairs
My new wife and I honeymooned there for one night. It was an old building, but clean and well-furnished. Each little apartment has everything you need, plus ours had a nice view. The bed was fantastically comfortable and we enjoyed being able to eat food we made ourselves at at little table. Staff was kind and pleasant to deal with. This place is not new or renovated or fancy by any standards, but well maintained and cozy, and a great value. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone looking to stay at a decent place in Boston for a good price! The cheap shampoo and soap provided smelled a little weird, and there was a funny little device on the wall that may have been meant for a lamp or some device that had exposed wires. We parked at Alewife station for $7 and took the T in because the parking at Copley House is $20 and the cheapest around (and we hate driving in Boston traffic). Still, the good outweighed these minor inconveniences!
Back Bay neighborhood townhouses converted to hotel . . . didn't "stay" in Boston for a night --- I lived in Boston for a night . . . love this place . . . will be my 1st choice for Boston in future
The responsiveness of the staff was good when there were problems. The room had not been checked properly prior to being let to us. We had to change rooms as the first one had blinds that did not fit the window so our privacy was compromised. The second room in which we stayed was not clean including plates in the cupboards. We had to wash them before use. The tv did not work due to a broken cable. We had no way of controlling the heating when it was chilly and had to call for it to be switche in on more than one occasion. There were no cooking utensils or cutlery in the room and the gas cooker would not ignite automatically with no provision of a manual lighter. The carpet was filthy around the edges, the whole place needed a good clean, thick dust lay along the edge of the carpet.
The location and full kitchen facilities. It was within walking distance of all activities we were involved with. Excellent location for subway. Shower heads were extremely noisy. Adjacent room shower woke us.
We lived in Back Bay in the past so the old sounds and smells of an authentic row house were familiar and expected when we reserved the room. It was clean, albeit old and aging, the kitchenette useful and well supplied, the chairs and table at the bay windows and view very nice. There are stores nearby for food as well as nice takeouts. It is not for everyone - but we loved it! To be in the center of Boston for that price was fantastic. We were able to air out the smell of febreze or the like. It was not needed and if it had not aired out, it would have been a problem.
Love the location, very close to everything we wanted. Fenway was just a quick walk away as well as a few nice bars. However there were two different tram lines just a few blocks away to get anywhere not within walking distance. Room was small but clean with all the amenities required. Didn't care for the coffee, however there was a 711 two blocks down that had green mountain coffee so all was well there. Also didn't care for having to park a few blocks away, but for $15 a day parking, it was better than getting a ticket.
Lots of space, kitchen facilities, nice street, friendly staff, close to shops, including Prudential Centre and Shaws supermarket, great value - $140 inc tax for a one bed studio. Shower took a long time to heat up, we guess this was because we were in the basement apartment and the boiler was at the top of the building. Think the place is being slowly overhauled as some of kitchen/bathroom units look a little bit bashed, but another suite we looked into as it was being cleaned was really well furnished. Our flat was mostly lovely though. The carpet leading to our room, down the stairs needs replacing and the room next door is the linen room and a big basket of dirty linen was sat in the corridor at one point, but overall this didn't affect our stay. The aircon filter was not clean though so we didn't use it, it does need cleaning. Check in area was cluttered.
My room had been recently refurbished. decor very nice - and good size. would be good for longer term stay as it had kitchenette. Stairwell was narrow - no elevator which was not an issue for me, but might be. also the office staff was not always present: "on break, back shortly, sorry for inconvenience"
feel very easy to stay The window can not open, so the room lacks of fresh air.
Great location, well-furnished apartments Not handicap accessible and no mention of that on the website or in any of the information provided. My room was on the 3rd floor in a building with no elevator. The only interaction I had with staff prior to check out was because I emailed to ask them about a late arrival; did not talk to or hear from anyone else other than that.
The price for being two blocks away from Prudential center was great as the event I was attending was being held there. Clean sheets, floors, and otherwise. Friendly and helpful staff! The walls were thin enough where I could clearly hear any noises including coughs, grumbles and otherwise of next door patrons.
Great facilities for an extended stay. Breakfast couild be taken in the lounge or taken to your apartment. Good level of equipment an the rooms were well appointed. Free wifi.
Close to shopping, entertainment, transportation, restaurants.
Location, staff. Just needs some sprucing up! Just needs sprucing up!
Hotel is clean. Swimming pool spotless. It is far from the attractions. You will have to take a taxi or Uber (approx. $10) Very close to Fenway, walking distance.
I know it's Boston but still overpriced. Had a lot of luggage that I by had to climb stairs with because there was no elevator. Small bathroom. No electrical outlets.
The staff were very nice. Location OK to resturants The size of the beds were small. Had 2 double beds and they were short. Charged for car to be parked. No continental breakfast or even coffee except room coffee Bathroom was small Needs updated
Close to NE university. No restaurant for breakfast but good inexpensive breakfast place just down the street within easy walking.
Clean, Right price and big rooms There was remodeling going on.
The beds were super comfy Rooms were very cold and for the quality of the room that had outdated appliances and not even a mini fridge, the price the price was a little high and the fact that guests have to pay for overnight parking is slightly ridiculous.
The staff and the location were an are OUTSTANDING!!! No refrigerator in the room. Water pressure was to low for a good shower
Location AC off during my stay it was 45 degree outside I have to open the only window.
It was a convenient location. For the price, the hotel was very shabby. It clearly hasn't been rennovated in a long time and was just kind of depressing. For how much they were charging, the hotel should have been much nice. I was disappointed.
Location is terrific Staff was great Property is clean Older property showing some of its age
Convenient location & best price in area Friendly service Attractive updated decor Comfortable bed Thin walls... noise in the hall and a little from the busy street interrupted sleep. Shower head is too low for moderately tall man. Loud A/C (which was a bit of a plus because it muffled hall noise, but still...) Was hard to get curtains to close out all the street light (and it's a bright street)
The staff was wonderful, let us use their microwave and managed to get us paper plates and utensils on short notice. The location is marvelous. We will be back. There was simply nothing to complain about. Oh, it was a little tricky to get a consistent temperature in the room.
Nice, clean place. Friendly proprietors and staff. Good breakfast. Would come back and recommend it to friends. Our room had its own bathroom, probably would go with that option the next time too. And yes, the location is terrific!
Not much Shared bathroom/shower, bed in a closet style lodging. Not a B&B.
Room is clean, bathroom was just outside. In the past I've been in hostels all over the damn world and that's what this was to me – a hostel for adults. From other reviews I've seen people are expecting some full on BnB experience that is not, but they do offer a free continental breakfast if you're up early. If you're into documenting your luxurious accommodations to show off – this is not for you. If you're more into being in a clean place that's centrally located where you're going to sleep and refresh – 100% yes. The place was full and yet we saw no one and never waited for the bathroom. Friendly staff that got us in and out efficiently.
Convenient location. Staff was friendly and helpful. Lots of street noise made it difficult to sleep. Decor was charming if outdated. Not worth the expense.
The front desk person was the most patient person I have ever met. Amazing service and great vibe.
The location of this hotel was fantastic. Only ten minutes short walking distance to Back Bay and all of the restaurants, shops etc. The room was dirty. Carpet was not vacuumed, there were animal hairs on the carpet and bedspread. Stairs in the corridor, dirty. Free WIFI advertised -was not available in our room. Free breakfast was just a few cereals but no milk with it - not consumed.
It's a cross between an airbnb and a hotel. We were in a charming neighborhood with a cool, recently renovated, very functional suite. It was safe, convenient (close to the T Station)and attractive. WiFi was iffy. The directory on neighborhood restaurants, etc was missing. Neither was a big problem for us.
We had a great experience at The Christopher! The room was clean, well furnished, and quiet. Absolutely zero 'hotel noise'; only the garbage truck Friday morning was heard. As advertised, it's close to the Pru and Copley Centers, and to all of downtown for that matter. The South Corridor Park walking trail, half a block away, gets you from Back Bay Station and Copley Square all the way to the Symphony on a quiet, paved urban trail with no traffic! Giaccomo's Restaurant is true Boston Italian and only steps away. The only things preventing a five-star rating were lack of heat controls in room (it was hot on the top floor) and a leaky sink in unit #8. We'll be staying here again to visit our son at Northeastern University.
This is a small apartment building with several units. There is no hotel staff on premises. I had a decent studio apartment in a neighborhood just a few blocks south of the Hynes convention center. When I got there, I could not get in. I needed to have a keypad entry code for both the front door and my room. I called the property management people, but there was no answer. I left a message, but nobody called back. After about 20 minutes of standing outside, another call did go through. The person I spoke with said that I should have gotten an e-mail with the codes and my room number. He did give me this information, and I did get in. I thought the room was overpriced for what I got, but it was comfortable, and still less expensive than the convention center hotels.
