Perfect back bay

Always enjoy staying at the Lenox, the staff really do go out of their way to be friendly and helpful, every time you see them. Such a positive attitude from everyone. We were super lucky to get upgraded to a junior suite, gorgeous and perfect for girls weekend. I recommend the Lenox to anyone who enjoys great service in a refined setting, and doesn't mind paying for it. You are right in the best spot in the Back Bay, so nice to hear the piano bar going again!

Weekend Getaway

The Lenox Hotel was great, the location was convenient and within walking distance to a lot of Boston attractions. The Irish Pub had good food and atmosphere. The room was clean and comfortable. The Bar / Lounge was great as well. Would definitely stay there again!

Great Location and Beautiful Atmospehere!

The hotel is located in a wonderful location for those who seek shopping and dining. Convenient to Boston Common, the theater district, and Prudential, it is a great choice to serve as a base for a trip to Boston. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating, the interior exudes old world charm with a modern flair. I have already made reservations to return.

Impeccable Location

The hotel location is perfect. The room was very small and desperately in need of a renovation.

beautiful hotel

For all those lovers of historic hotels this is one of them. Great location, great staff, beautiful buliding, old charm but all the newest technology- check the tucked in room off the lobby to print out your boarding pass or find info about Boston or send a digital postal to your family. The restaurant, bar and pub are very good, not cheap but good food, good service. They have the best L`occitaine products and tasty chocolates every night on your bed a free bottled every day. DonĀ“t get the room with Exeter St view. Get the ones that face Boylston St. The TV in the room is huge and they have the latest films to watch (movies that are still in the movie theaters), not cheap though, more expensive than a cinema ticket. Good hotel to go on your own, with friends or as a couple. Saw some children but not many.

Great stay in Boston

I've spent 4 fantastic nights at The Lennox in Boston: great location. If u like historic hotels, this is one if them. I've stayed in the basic room and it had everything you need and more: comfy beds, walk in closet, water and chocolates left in your room every day. Huge tv screen. Aveda products. Cozy lobby w a real fireplace and excellent music. The bar and restaurant are very good and you can be on your own and it's ok. There are no coffee machines in the room but every morning they have Pete's coffee , tea and hot chocolate in the lobby. The tub is on the small size and the shower head is standard, nothing fancy. They give you a map w your room key, wifi included and very easy and fast to print your boarding pass from a huge, interactive screen the have near the lobby. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

A Jewel in the Back Bay

This is a perfect location. The staff go above and beyond. Rooms are small, but there is enough space for one to two people. A gracious boutique hotel. The food at the restaurant is fair but there are so many other restaurants within a block. The fireplace lounge is wonderful.

Fantastic hotel and convenient location

My husband and I spent a couple's weekend in Boston to shop, dine and attend a theatre. The Lenox Hotel was the most ideal location and comfortable walking distance to most places including Chinatown. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and I never had to wait more than 1 minute in any line. The room was small but cozy. The valet parking staff were incredibly friendly. We will come to the Lenox in the future.
