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 food
  • 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.

Nice hotel

Overall it was a nice stay at the hotel. The room is clean and comfortable. Compared with the rates at other similar hotels closeby, that I got is good enough. But maybe because of it, our room is smaller. I would stay here again.

nice hotel, good location

Biggest gripe I had was the $42/night parking rate and was not discounted for hotel guests. Hotel itself was comfortable and the staff very accommodating. It's not the easiest hotel to drive to from Logan airport if you're not familiar with the city (hope your gps is working!) but once you get there it's a convenient location with a T station nearby.

weekend in the city

Enjoyed a slowpaced weekend in the heart of the city. Excellent location for shoppping and dining. Very quiet, comfortable room. Pricing is a bit high, and the pay for parking was unexpected. With enough advanced planning (saving up) I would stay again.

Practical, not shabby

I needed a hotel that gives two beds for one person price. Colonade was the only place that gives you that. Room, bedding and bath room were clean and satisfactory. Only thing that concerned me was the strength of suction power of the toilet. It did its job when I was there but I can see that its weakness might cause discomfort and inconvenience. I noted some other guests complained about it, too. The proximity to Green Line T and Pru Center is hugely attractive.

A good place to stay

I got a room on the 6th floor facing Huntington Ave. The room was clean and comfortable. But I was waken up in the morning by the noise from the street traffic. The staff are very helpful. The doorman somehow knew the drivers of the taxies lined up in the front and introduced me to my driver. The thing I really hate is I had to pay $14 to get internet connection in the room for only 24 hours. They don't even offer free Wi-Fi in their small lobby. I was not able to raise the room temperature. The engineer sent by the front desk told me the thermostat is nly for AC. But he gave me a small heater. The taxi fare from this hotel to Logan airport was $22 including toll.

Unbeatable location for the price

I enjoy staying at the Colonnade. It's centrally located in the Copley Square area and convenient to restaurants and shopping. The $38 a day parking fee is one down side of staying in Boston. However, the alternative, a Boston parking ticket and possible tow don't leave you much choice. Thanks Mayor Mennino!!

Not bad overall

Fantastic location...right across from the Prudential Center, only 2 blocks or so from all the shopping and restaurants you could want, and the T stop (subway) was literally right outside the front door, which made traveling ridiculously easy the entire trip. Everything was great about the hotel except for the hours of the roof top pool (if it's on the roof, why does it need to close at 8 p.m.?) and the lack of free internet service (which costs 15 bucks for 24 hours of access).
