Modern and hip Back Bay boutique hotel near Boston attractions

Following a top-to-bottom $25 million makeover, the Colonnade sparkles with sleek design and pulsates with a hip vibe. The hotel's prime Back Bay location creates a sublime setting for any business or leisure traveler as it sits across from Hynes Convention Center and steps from shopping at Copley Place and Newberry Street. Sun-goers and foodies alike flock to Boston's only rooftop pool and the chic French bistro Brasserie Jo.

Highlights
  • Prime Back Bay location with recent $25 million dollar renovation
  • Boston's only hotel rooftop pool
  • Authentic French cuisine at Brasserie Jo
  • VIPet Program, including dog walking (fees apply), fluffy beds and treats
  • Wi-Fi throughout hotel (fees apply, but free to loyalty members)
Rooms

Sleek, modern and chic with blond wood, chocolate accents and floor-to-ceiling windows that actually open, Colonnade's 285 rooms provide exceptional comfort. Each room features plush Sealy pillow-top mattresses with deluxe bedding, 37-inch flat-panel TV, Keurig gourmet coffee maker and Sharper Image Sound Soother alarm clock with iPod dock. In lieu of a traditional desk, rooms feature a dining-style table. Bathrooms comprise marble vanities, rain showers and Gilchrist and Soames bath products. And don't forget the rubber duck, a Colonnade trademark.

At least one adult 21 years or older must be registered at each room.

 

Features

Centrally located in the Back Bay, the modern and exquisitely decorated Colonnade truly welcomes the most discerning travelers. The sleek lobby acts as a welcome respite from the bustling city with warm hues and pleasant energy. Brasserie Jo, a contemporary French bistro from acclaimed chef Jean Joho, dismisses the stodgy hotel restaurant reputation, while the Roof Top Pool hops both day and night (in season). Guests can work up a sweat in the 1,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art fitness center with expansive views of Boston's South End. Feel free to bring your pets--the hotel has one of the most welcoming pet policies around.

Great experience!

Beautiful hotel- room was lovely & beds were comfortable. It is $10 for 24 hours of wireless internet and $35 for 24-hour parking in their garage. Minibar is in the room, along with HUGE flat screen TV. Bathroom is beautiful and the many mirrors give the illusion of a larger bathroom. Fitness center was small, but got the job done. Rooftop pool is also small, but refreshing & there is a bar and tables to sit and relax. In-hotel restaurant, Brasserie Jo, is delicious. We had breakfast there twice- we had the freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juices, fresh fruit, poached eggs benedict, egg white omelette, yogurt and granola and potatoes are DELICIOUS. The hotel is directly across the street from the Prudential Center & 30 seconds from the T. Highly recommend!

Great Location!

The Colonnade in Boston was a cool hotel with really modern decor! The bed was so comfortable and it was nice to look out the window and see the Back Bay neighborhood. We got room service which was delicious and check in and out was easy! Right off the Prudential Green Line stop! Walking distance from Fenway (about a mile) and Boston Public Garden!

Great location

Met by an extremely kind,warm and helpful doorman who always greeted us by our sir name every time he saw us; bell captain, just as friendly and helpful with hints to see while in Boston. Concierge was first rate in obtaining tickets, and on last day, seated us in lobby,brought us coffee/tea and a paper to read till time came for us to go to the airport.

Excellent Hotel...Recommended 100%!!!

I do want to thank you for the excellent service/staff. The hotel has nice workers and they really provided me the best service! I was also very happy with what the hotel offered during my stay. I got a nice and new room with excellent view, a new and comfortable bed with relaxing music, and a new and clean bathroom with all I needed. The Colonnade Hotel provides good quality in everything they have there.... and that is what makes a big difference.

Perfect Location

This is a perfect location. Walking distance to Copley Square and Boylston St. Walking distance to Shaw's, a huge grocery/wine store. Just outside the entry is the T-stop for the train. This is a really upscale area of Boston. When my son came back from his morning run, he was greeted at the front door of the hotel with a towel and a bottle of water. It doesn't get much better than that!!! Great room with great coffee, wine glasses and a wine opener. I will definitely book our next trip to The Colonnade.

Best Boston Cruises for whale watching. We called them to inquire about their location and were so kind and helpful. They even told us to check out their 2 for 1 coupon on Amazon.com. Saved us $40....YAY
