My wife and I stayed here on July 3rd as sort of a "get away from the kids" night. We were checked into room 107 - a little weird as the entrance to rooms 106 and 107 is actually through the lounge, but ended up being nice and quiet despite a decent bar crowd. Room was small (we just had...

Great location, excellent free wifi and 2 PCs in lobby, with free access to printers. (nice touch, much like Euro & Canadian hostels I've been to. Not a boutique hotel, so don't pay boutique prices (no more than $225/night, in my opinion) rooms are ok but small-ish.

Reserved through Booking.com. We were allocated room 205 whch has 2 generators directly outside the window and the noise is intolerable.Staff who were extremely helpful could not give us another room until the next day. This new room was on the 6th floor and made this hotel 'perfect'. Location is excellent and I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Just...

Stayed three nights at this hotel and thought it was great. Room (and bed) was small, and the air-con fan which always ran was a little noisy, but this was more than made up by the great location and extremely modern and tasteful room and hotel overall. Walking distance to Boston Commons and Fenway Park for the baseball, as well...

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...

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.
