Great location, right across from the Boston Public Library. Access to both in-bound and out-bound subways, catacorner to Copley Square. Small rooms, no dressers but plenty of shelf space and a small sofa for hanging out in the room, small fridge for cooling drinks or storing leftovers. Wonderful boutique hotel with a great staff. Bar area, breakfast/lounge area, small outside...

Took advantage of the day pass for the local health club which has something for everyone. Continental bkfst sparse but there's lots of options in the...

When making plans for a four day stop in Boston, we were dismayed at the high hotel prices (over $400 a night was standard). We stayed at the Charlesmark at the recommendation of a friend who makes frequent trips to Boston. It fit our budget. Our friend had warned us that the rooms were small and told us to reserve...

This hotel was convenient to everything in Boston. Very clean and decorated nicely. The rooms aren't large, but we had a wonderful view of the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The breakfast was OK, just your basic continental, but they are supposed to open a restaurant soon. It seemed a bit pricey, but actually cheap compared to the major...

Room was the smallest I have ever stayed in including Manhattan. That said, it had everything you would need. The staff were very helpful. I would return. Location is fantastic because it is only a short distance from the Copley T stop. Close to food and shopping.

This is a small European style hotel. It is clean and the staff is pleasant. The rooms or at least the one we had had very dark decor which made the whole room dark. I was surprised that the hotel had received a certificate of excellence. There was a continental breakfast included.

The staff was so great! Made me feel like I was with friends. Food was fast and tasty. My cosmo was perfection! Meaghan helped us out and Juan made an excellent cosmo. The location is right at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Great location to sit out front and people watch.

Wow. Where do I begin?! I came to Boston, alone (female, 24), having never been to this BEAUTIFUL city before. Knowing no one and not knowing where I was half of the time either! The hotel staff, reception and bar were PHENOMENAL. The rooms - you couldn't fault. Clean and comfortable, with everything you'd need for your stay. The location...

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
