  • Dr. Beiser

    by 40ramik on 2019-03-02 06:23 pm

    This is by far our best experience at a Boston hotel( we have been to several 5 stars hotel in Boston) and arguably one of the best boutique hotels. It has the right size, the right ambience and the service you expect from such a hotel. The rooms are wonderfully appointed, supper clean quiet and pleasant. Service is impeccable- professional, respectful and friendly. The amenities are top notch
    In short excellent highly recommended place. This is our place in Boston from now on.

  • Absolutely Terrible Stay!!

    by Bluejay001 on 2019-02-25 01:22 pm

    I spent a one-night stay at this hotel; I'm a travel executive and have stayed at many hotels, including all the 5-star hotel properties in Boston. This hotel was an absolute disaster from the moment I stepped inside. Anyone planning on visiting Boston should stay away from this property.The doorman didn't even attempt to open the door even though my hands were full with luggage -- he made direct eye contact with me -- please explain to me how is that possible. Front desk check-in was condescending and the clerk barely acknowledged me as I gave her my ID and credit card for incidentals. One of two elevators were broken. When I arrived to the hotel room, I tried turning on one of the lights -- broken. I also tried tapping a lightswitch "on" -- the lightswitch panel proceeded to fall down onto the ground -- literally fell off the wall. The other lightswitch panels, which are unlike traditional on/off switches, but instead of some strange horizontal variety, are sticky and require a bit of fidgeting with to toggle. Then, I decided to wash off and take a shower -- the shower drain was clogged, and I was standing in a puddle of water. The bathroom's ventilator was broken, and I was now inside a man-made cloud. Also, the towel heater turned "on", but did not warm anything -- also broken. I then called it quits and went to bed. The nightstands were the cheapest bedroom fixture I've ever seen, and hideous -- a cheap throw placed on top of a kitchen stand with a glass plate on top -- this was not actual bedroom furniture -- see photo. I tried watching TV, but the TV was mounted on the wall in such a way that all dialogue and sound turned into a muffled mess. Ironically, there is a very nice sound system in the room from Harmon Kardon, but it does not connect to the TV -- only bluetooth and radio. I called down for a bottle of water, which was delivered, but only after receiving a separate phonecall notifying me that the hotel employee with the water bottle was outside my door; The A/C unit was so damn loud I couldn't even hear him knock -- the air conditioning was on "auto", indicative of poor maintenance? When I woke up and tried to get a cup of coffee, they had strange looking plastic spoons -- why can't they afford to put a metal spoon there? Added to the room's overall cheap feel. Minibar prices are absolutely outrageous and they even offer the "XV" branded bed throw for $600. Not the only "XV" branded thing in the room -- absolutely EVERYTHING is logo branded, even the bathsoap -- tasteless -- I can understand branding, but this is just overdone. The only nice thing about this hotel room was the fireplace, which worked without issue. Also, the view was of the side of the next building -- so enjoy looking at others work next to a trash receptacle.

  • Female friendly boutique hotel

    by Bullwinkleprods on 2019-02-20 08:40 am

    I've often stayed at this luxury boutique hotel, which well located in Boston, and have always had a good experience. It works for both couples and females travelling alone because it is cosy, feels intimate, is very friendly, with a relaxed bar and all the right things nearby....and a lovely upscale restaurant. When I'm on my own I like that I can eat in a casual way at the bar if I want to, because the restaurant though lovely is pretty formal. There is a gym, which is very small but usually empty so good enough, and the staff are really attentive and welcoming. My only downsides - rooms can be a bit dark ( I always ask for a standard lamp) and breakfast doesn't start til 7am. However the ubiquitous Starbucks is very close and opens very early.

  • First Class in Beacon Hill

    by Techfan2000 on 2019-02-04 05:53 pm

    We had a wonderful stay during our first ever trip to Boston. After researching 4- star hotels this came up our top choice. The location was perfect...a walkable distance to many Freedom Trail sights and also Beacon Hill. For the places that were too far, the House Lexus was a special treat. We were upgraded in rooms, and loved the large front windows and fireplace. The front desk service/concierge was nice, but not overly exceptional. The room service and housekeeping were consistent and took the time for special touches that were noticed...wrapping my cell phone cord, laying out slippers by the bed, etc. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Amazing Boutique Hotel.

    by smedley26 on 2019-01-06 07:40 am

    From the moment that we checked to the moment we checked out the hotel and it's team were amazing.

    The rooms are of a good size and the gas fire is a great touch, it's makes the room feel warm and cozy.

    The mini bar is the most comprehensive I have ever seen!

    The staff were great from the concierge, reception and bar team.

    The restaurant Moo great menu and quality of food was sublime. The cocktail and wine list was very comprehensive.

    Loved this hotel and Boston!!
