A small gem of a hotel tucked away in the Back Bay up the street from the Copley Square marathon finish line. The rooms are petite and luxurious, there is first rate dining to be had in the Clio restaurant and the hip Uni Sashimi Bar, and old world service which will treat you like long lost friends.

            The staff was soooooo helpful and the rooms not only looked clean but were. Delicious jellybeans!

            I was hoping for "free" wireless not prepaid at & T.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            The homemade chocolate cookies and the luxurious bed linens!

            No swimming pool or affordable access to one elsewhere.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            King bed, bed turn-down with chocolates, very courteous and freindly/attentive staff, cleanliness

            shower head (low pressure), pay for wifi, cost, no view

          • Family with children
            9.2

            I love everything about the hotel, the suites, and the feel of old world. However the location is a bit out of the way to the center.

            There is nothing to dislike.

          • Family with children
            7.0

            Excellent location: walking distance to Fenway, shopping, mit

            We reserved a room that we were told would have two beds plus a sofabed. (Booked.net didn't allow us to do this but we called the hotel after making the booking.) But when we arrived they had no such rooms available, so we had to squeeze into one bed plus a sofabed (both queen). It wasn't horrible but we ended up paying over $100 a night extra for the same bedding (worse, really, since the sofabed wasn't of course as good as a normal bed) as we would have gotten at another hotel. So if you are a couple and want the extra sitting area of the suite, this hotel might be worth it. But if you need the bedding, you'd do just as well to go to a standard hotel, and it would be cheaper.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            location

            overpriced. For the professed quality of the hotel, shoulnd't have to pay an extra $3 for a newspaper.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            The staff was excellent and the room was beautiful.

            The in room computer never worked. The room we were given, while very nice, had no view at all. We were told we were "upgraded," but the room was in the very back of the hotel and looked out over an alley. Anyone booking should ask about the location of the room and what view the room has.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            The beds were very comfortable. The staff was helpful.

            The 1 bedroom suite did have a separate living room but it was not separated by a solid wall. French doors allowed privacy from direct view but there was a doorway opening to the side of the room which did not allow audible privacy. Bathroom small, pedestal sink with limited shelf space and the toilet was very close to the access door. The A/C worked but not if you want a full blast of cold in the summer or while sleeping.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            We were upgraded to a suite, which was a very comfortable setting, and we received excellent service from everyone in the hotel.

          • Single
            10.0

            Comfort of the bed and linens - pillows great. Clio's is an outstanding restaurant.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Very good service, good value, comfortable

          • Family with children
            9.2

            Suite style room was excellent - spaceous & very comfortable

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            Room 610 (small suite) poor value for money due to claustrophobic view from all windows and small bathroom, no coffee-making facility and no free wifi (there was something in the room which did not work) Overpriced for the product offered and the standing to which the hotel obviously aspires.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Location excellent for city touring. Loved the size of room with the seperate living room space.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Location close to Newbury Street is convenient

            Room 510 is located at the back, very noisy alley. A/c is old and noisy.
