This hotel is in a fantastic location and close to lovely restaurants, shops, the common etc. The staff were OK, not too enthusiastic - coming up from NY we found them far less friendly and helpful..booked a trolley tour with the receptionist and she was certainly not going to explain the tours available . The male receptionist was more hospitable....

This is a great little hotel, the rooms are small but well equipped and suited our week long stay perfectly;, the bathrooms have speakers in which is pretty cool for keeping up with whatever's on the TV whilst you, shower etc. if they were a few feet bigger this would surely be a 4-star hotel. The staff are helpful and...

I recently stayed for 3 days at the Charlesmark and was very pleased. I was attending a conference at a very formal nearby luxury hotel. Not only do I not feel very comfortable in luxury hotels (I like to dress casually), but the price at that hotel and most of the others nearby was very high. The Charlesmark's rooms ARE...

We booked the Charlesmark on what was available on the web. It's a nice looking hotel, with nice wood touches and accents. I also understand that in Boston's back bay area, particularly, rooms tend to be small and pricey. These rooms are very cramped and the beds are small. Staying with another person in the smaller rooms with a double...

Just 1 block from Copley Square, and 1 block from Newbury Street, there's plenty to do within walking distance of the hotel. The thumping music and nightclub decor on the lobby level cater to a younger crowd, but upstairs the rooms are well-appointed and clean. The free breakfast was essentially instant oatmeal and bananas but there's plenty of food to...

Location and price are probable unbeatable. Room decore was old, the draws where stiff and noisy. Some staff members where wonderful, others lacking interested and a little bit to much interest in talking with coworkers.... Our room view was a brickwall.... Breakfast was really good, and overall I liked the experience. Room was really clean and bathroom good, Hairdryer worked...

This hotel absolutely met my expectations during my trip to Boston. The staff members were friendly and helpful, the room clean, and the location extremely convenient. I appreciated large windows in my room, as well as the modern decor. This is not a luxury experience, but was more than adequate in terms of comfort and amenities. The towels actually smelled...

Small boutique hotel offers excellent value in a high priced neighborhood. Rooms are reasonably sized, with premium sound systems. Continental breakfast is included. The hotel does not have a restaurant, but there is a decent, inexpensive Thai place next door, and for a splurge, Morton's steakhouse is a few steps away. What staff lacks in polish, they may up for...

Had a wonderful stay at the Charlesmarks hotel. The price was reasonable and I was close to where I had to go. The Hotel is small but I loved it. Very reasonable in price and the staff was nice. I did not have any problems. I had a queen size bed, which was on the second floor. It was a...

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.
