Rooms very tiny (no space for a desk so not good to work from) but otherwise very good and recently renovated. Excellent shower. Bed is twin, so only suitable for one person. At 200 dollars per night cheap for Boston, but in any other place would be overpriced

From the airport take the Back Bay Logan Express Airport to Copley Square bus. Pay the $7.50 fare right on the bus, and you are the first of only two stops. It was super quick, and the driver even tried to refuse my tip. I rolled my suitcase across Copley Square past Trinity Church and watched a demonstration on the...

We stayed at the Charlesmark hotel for the 4th July fireworks and celebrations. This hotel is in a great location and walking distance to many of Boston's tourist sites. The hotel was clean. The room, though small, met what we needed. The wifi was great and free and the continental breakfast was included in the price. The hotel is on...

The hotel was very clean. We were on the 6th floor overlooking the Boston marathon finish line. The location is right in the center of the city. We walked everywhere (I.e. Fenway, Frontier Trail, North End, Cheers, restaurants and bars). I would highly recommend this hotel. Fantastic experience.

Friends stayed at a large chain hotel for the same price. They had a large room with fantastic city views. We had a double bed, no dresser and a brick wall view. Very small dark room needless to say. We arrived early and were told they would contact us as soon as a room was available. That never happened.We returned...

Stayed at the Charlesmark for 3 nights for a work trip. Close to where I had to go and the price was right. Reminded me of staying in Europe. Small room, but functional. Only real complaint would be the mini-blinds didn't really do the best job of keeping the morning sun out. Staff was pleasant and plenty of food and...

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...

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...

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.
