The room was cozy and the bath very nice. Complimentary breakfast was...

My wife and I stayed here for two night in June 2012, having learned of this from a guidebook. While a private club, the general public is welcome to stay here. It is in a very nice area within walking distace of the Boston Commons. Very quiet place, with few people around. Our room was not cheap, but was huge...

This is a B&B in a very central Boston location. It is a mansion building with beautifully appointed and very large rooms. We were in The Wellesley, which was huge, with seating areas and a nice shower room. The breakfast is a continental style buffet, which is adequate. The lounge is available all day with free coffee and snacks (excellent...

Arrived in Boston during the infamous "Hell week" with temperatures -6 to -12 degrees centigrade. This magnificent place spared no expense in making us, the frozen and exhausted tourists, feel right at home. The spacious room on the 4th floor was well decorated and furnished. Amenities were decent, hot water worked fine (critical in the colder seasons). Breakfast was simple...

A very civilised and charming place to stay in central Boston. Easy access to everything and also the ability to park a car. On a business trip this was the perfect antidote to the formatted rooms of many other hotels. We will return.

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.
