very nice hotel near Fenway, Boston University and Newbury street. the front desk upgraded us to a beautiful suite. The entire staff from the bellman, housekeeping and the front desk could not have been nicer.

The building is older, but both the location and the quality of the staff make up for that. Uni (the restaurant) is one of the best sushi on the East coast for those of us missing LA level foods. Beds are comfortable, rooms are clean -- just suffers from being small and older. Definitely a great value for Boston stays.

I discovered this gem and was blown away. While the location is ideal, being close to Boston's main attractions, it was the staff, common areas and room that set this hotel apart. The staff is professional, courteous and warm. The lobby is elegant and balances comfort and sophistication perfectly. The rooms are spacious contrary to my experience with hotels in...

This is where I stay in Boston. Excellent staff, great location and lots of charm. I had an early check in and one of my two rooms was ready. Early check in puts pressure on housekeeping but finding a used soap in the bath and a woman's garment on the floor was disappointing. I will return but this stay was...

This hotel has a lot going for it - location is amazing just steps away from the top of Newbury street and on the beautiful Commonwealth Avenue. The lobby and welcome you get as you arrive is friendly and has an old school charm and grandeur about it. I feel where the hotel is let down is the rooms. Incredibly...

We had a lovely suite at the Eliot. The room was well decorated and very cozy with a nice sitting area and bedroom separated by french doors. The marble bathroom and walk in shower were clean and the shower head was good. There was even a little welcome candy gift. We heard a few street noises on the 8th floor...

I just loved the atmosphere in and around this lovely hotel. Staff, room and location were all excellent! Breakfast in bed was so good too! I loved the way the room was decorated and that there was a separate living area. A rare find! Looking forward to our stay again next week 🙂

I wish to thank this guest for taking the time to review her stay and for rating the Eliot so highly. It is true that the Eliot is like a "rare find," almost like a little jewel.

We needed to be in Boston overnight and wanted a small hotel in a great location. The Eliot is that. The service was excellent and personal, and room spacious and very clean. We were only disappointed that the restaurant was not open for dinner the night that we were there. We would definitely stay again.

We visited for several nights in the summer with our children. Really beautiful hotel and it was great to have the extra space of a suite.

You worry about a hotel being a cold or impersonal place to spend Christmas, even if venturing off to have a meal or two with family, but the Eliot is the perfect hotel for a cozy less-hotel like feel!!

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighbourhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
