  • 8.0.Very good

    Nice hotel

    Friendly staff. Clean hotel, very chic. Double bed was on small side but apparently American sizes class it as double which is what we paid for. Was very comfortable. Great location.

    Following a family wedding in Cincinnati, and before returning home to the UK, my wife and I stayed here for three nights at the end of of our holiday in the US. We previously stayed for similar lengths of time in Washington and New York when both hotels were really excellent in every way. Sadly, this was not true of the Charlesmark in Boston. Our first night's stay was in a cramped room which was designated a "double". This room 307 is certainly NOT a double with barely enough room to negotiate around the room as well as lack of storage for our baggage.. The bed was a small double and the wardrobe was below table top level with no room to hang my wife's dresses ! The fridge was located so high up that it would be difficult for an average person to access ! The helpful receptionists gave us the opportunity to move to another bigger room 101 which was genuinely a double for the remaining two nights which we took up. Be warned that room 103 which we were also shown has no windows for daylight ! The breakfast was described as continental. This was the lightest continental breakfast that we've ever experienced ! No cereal; no basic meat selection; just bagels, one fruit, coffee/tea. Very poor indeed. The hotel reception/lounge/bar decor was very smart with modern and very clean. The genuine double rooms mentioned were adequate with excellent bath/shower ensuites. The receptionists were also pleasant , courteous and accommodating.

    Great hotel

    Well located, comfortable well equipped hotel. This hotel is well located in the Back Bay Area of Boston. The rooms are small but are well equipped and are very clean. Air con is great as it was very warm during our stay. Breakfast is provided, it is self service and there is a limited selection but it is adequate. Great hotel…enjoyed our stay and would stay again

    Great hotel, fantastic location!! Rooms are not that big (normal for an inner city hotel) but offer everything you really need ( at the end of the day you want to see Boston, not your room :-) )

    The manager was super helpful and accommodating. I loved having coffee in the lobby. I was disappointed that the validation for the parking did not work and I was overcharged $10

    Best desk staff ever

    Janelle was manning the desk when we arrived about 20 minutes before check in and she personally made sure our room was ready and got us access right a way. Later on I asked for a late check out and was told our room was booked so the hotel needed us out by noon. When I mentioned that we were not catching our train home until 3:30 once again Janelle came through and got us a 1:30 check out which after leaving our bags gave us enough time to have lunch before heading for our train. I have never been treated so graciously by desk staff in any other hotel. Look forward to staying again

    Convenient way to experience the best of Boston

    Small room, small closet, but very clean and comfortable. I had a room without a street view, so very quiet. Stone tiled shower (no tub) was nice. Front desk staff was friendly. Great location. Close to shopping, sightseeing, and great food. I enjoy walking and was able to walk to Fenway, Boston Common / Freedom Trail, and of course the Public Library (across the street) easily. I felt safe in the neighborhood despite the fact that a shooting (no casualties) happened a couple blocks away while I was there! I would definitely stay here again.
