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
  • Complimentary hotel-wide Wi-Fi access
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, free Wi-Fi access, 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.

First Time Visit to Boston

The hotel was a perfect location, close to restaurants, and shops. Our room was clean, and very comfortable. Watching the Bruins/Hawks Hockey game in our room was perfect with amazing viewing/HD screen! Bed was very comfortable. Staff very helpful w/restaurant suggestions and walking directions. Helpful obtaining our boarding pass. Loved the outdoor pool!

Great downtown location

We have stayed downtown on several visits to Boston, but this was by far, the best location . It's easy to walk to shopping, restaurants, and wonderful Newbury Street. The rooms are lovely, and the roof top pool is an added bonus.

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

Great Hotel, staff and location

Stayed here for a few night to explore Boston. Hotel is in a good location - not totally central but close enough for both walking and public transit. Room was nice: modern and very clean. Bathroom was a little small but that's possibly because I had a twin room. Staff at the hotel were great - very helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend this place and would stay there again

Friendly, clean, affordable!

We were personally greeted as soon as we stepped out of the cab. After a quick check in (our rooms were ready early) [...] took us to our room. He was delightful - answering all of our questions while making us laugh. The location was no more than a quick cab ride away from all the attractions of downtown Boston. This hotel exceeded expectations and was very affordable. I highly recommend it.

Fabulous hotel in great location!

Beautiful hotel in super convenient location. I took my 2 kids (5 & 7) all over town by T (Prudential stop right across the street) or by foot. The room was spotless and filled with natural light, the bed was lush and comfortable, and the service was friendly and efficient. We requested a small refrigerator upon check-in and it was there as soon as we arrived at our room. The pool on the roof was fantastic! Drinks and great food at bargain prices (much lower than room service!), lots of towels, etc. Loved this hotel!! One the down-side, we had some noisy neighbors which got annoying at bed time.

Across the street at the Prudential shopping center there are tons of low-priced dining and snacking options. Ask for a refrigerator in your room and keep leftovers and cold drinks!

Great location and amentities!

The rooms are really comfortable, except for us Southerners who like a/c--it had already been shut off in October and temps were unseasonably warm. However, staff quickly sent up a fan and windows were opened. The subway entrance is on the sidewalk outside, so we rode from the airport for $1.70 each! And, we found Boston's subway to be clean and easy to maneuver. Do not miss the skywalk across the street at the Prudential center and Thornton's Restaurant down the block is the best for breakfast (the only meals we ate there, so other meals are probably great, too!) We had a wonderful time in Boston.
