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.

Awsome hotel!!

Stayed five nights at this delightful hotel. location is perfect and the hotel leaves nothing to be desired. The staff were exceptional in every department, we felt like we were coming home every time we returned each day. The beautiful lobby and all the stunning public areas were a joy to behold. Delicious breakfasts at City Table and well priced. Linens and towels in the rooms are sumptious. A wonderful hotel to which I will surely return each time I visit Boston.

Nice hotel, too expensive for what it offers.

Very good stay, great location. Amenities are limited. Nice large rooms. Bathroom more on the mediocre side.

Consistent quality service

My first choice on the Boston Back Bay Area. Quality staff and immaculate rooms. A small hotel with a family feel.

Great experience

Loved the hotel and the location. I want to give a shout out to Nate, the concierge. I've never had better service at a hotel. Nate set up an amazing weekend for me and was somehow able to get reservations at restaurants that I thought were sold out. Thanks for a great weekend.

Great Boston Hotel

We stayed one night at The Lenox in Boston and it was fabulous. The staff was incredibly friendly and eager to help us in every way. The room was clean and spacious. We will surely stay here again in the future!

The location was great. It is right off of Boylston St and only a block from Newbury St. It was within a couple of blocks of Boston Commons as well.

Perfect occasion

We wanted to visit Boston as neither of us had been previously. We chose the Lenox based on reviews and its location in Back Bay. Nothing was too difficult to get to. The staff were excellent at all times and helped us to get the most out of our 6 days in the city. The bottom line says about recommending to a friend - yes, with reservations. The reservation being that I wouldn't want so many of them to book that I can't get a reservation!

If in doubt talk to the Concierge Desk folk they have some good recommendations. I would add try The Top of The Hub, not cheap, but good value for what it serves.

Nice hotel, excellent location, but too expensive

Awesome location, the rest is not worth the price. Staff is trying to be helpful, but extremely inexperienced...For example, had my bag stuck to another car that almost left with it when the were "helping" unload my car.. Had to wait for the bag to be brought up to the room 20 minutes and make 2 calls...
