This is what you call SERVICE!

The staff... ALL of the STAFF... treat you like royalty at this place! I don't normally write reviews, but I am compelled to this time. From the moment that you arrive, you are welcomed with an earnest desire to assist in any way possible. Stay at the Lenox, you will not be disappointed. We stayed at the hotel for five days. We were originally placed in a room with a noise issue with due to a connecting room. We brought this to the Staff's attention, and they did not hesitate to move us to another room. All that they wanted was to take care of us. This is just one example of the hospitality that we received while staying at the Lenox. I hope that you find this helpful.

Non-smoking bathroom stank of smoke

Non-smoking bathroom stank of smoke. The fire alarm went off in the early hours of the morning and the incident was very poorly handled by staff, there were also obstructions in the fire escape stairs.

nice hotel, but really bad internet

the hotel was fine. very clean and quiet. the room service wasn't super expensive. the worst part was that the free wifi is ridiculously slow, like from 1997 slow. i wasn't able to work, and when i asked the concierge desk for recommendations of nearby places with wifi, one of the staff members kept glaring at me. won't be going back to this hotel.

Nice room, loved the bar.

The staff was super nice and attentive. The room key did not worked but the front desk girl was great. Not luxe but perfect for a one night stay and price. Bar was cool! Nice cocktails.

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...

Very friendly and helpful staff. The bedspread, sofa and window sheers were filthy. Grout missing in the bathroom, wallpaper peeling, desk badly scratched.

The room was fine but ...

The room was fine but small and the over sized bed and enormous dresser took up most of it, honestly they could have forgone the bed and put a mattress in one of the drawers. In the plus column there was free Wifi and their normal check out time is 12pm which was nice. Not the worst place i have ever had to stay but that is not saying much for a large hotel in a major city.

Classic, Traditional, Elegant

It's a great old hotel in the tradition of the Waldorf Astoria. It's like a (much) smaller version of it. I got a great discount, so this place offered great value. Great location for the Back Bay area. Walkable to lots of different things and safe. I picked it for the location in proximity to where I had to be for business, but wouldn't hesitate to stay here for any reason.

Good location and comfortable stay

Great location near Boston Common and Copley Place. All the staff were exceptional helpful and friendly. Lovely, comfy bed with nightly turndown and chocolates on pillows. They offered to print our airline boarding passes for us night before our flight. We were there four nights and will return again.
