Beautiful Hotel with Old World Charm

This hotel was in a great location - close to shopping, the library, and great restaurants. The hotel is in a wonderful old building, that has been beautifully restored. From the lobby to the hallways to the room - everything was very elegant. The City Bar, off of the lobby, was dark and quiet with a contemporary vibe. They had great home-made potato chips! We also tried the pub restaurant and it was good as well. My only complaint was the room layout. While it afforded a nice walk-in closet with comfy robes, the bathroom was at the far end of the room. The bathroom is usually located near the entrance of the room, along with the closet providing a bit of a buffer between the hallway noise and the bed. Unfortunately, some noisy, (but funny) Brits didn't realize that we could hear every word said in the hallway. There was also a large gap under our door which didn't help the noise issue. I would definitely stay there again, but request a room at the very end of the hall.

Great service

Great service from the bell captain and night manager. Loved the ice and water dispensers in the hallways. $15 by cab to wharf area where some tours depart.

A very happy stay.

Walking distance to all the good stuff in Boston's Back Bay and Beacon Hill. A comfortable hotel with an upscale feel without the upscale prices. Excellent, friendly staff, good bar.

Restful Time at Copley

The Lenox was in walking distance from much of the city. For what was not in walking distance public transportation was quite convenient. You could get anywhere in the city within a few minutes. Also, the tour bus routes where very close. All the staff were very friendly. My only complaint was that there was no way to do laundry while being a guest. They did provide laundry services for guests, but it was quite expensive (a few dollars for a single pair of underwear? Wash them in the sink). For an upscale hotel experience within a budget, I recommend the Lenox.

Excellent Location

We walked just about everywhere from the Lenox. The staff was wonderful in helping us with nearby restaurants and walking directions to the sights. We walked to Fenway to watch the Red Sox and it was fantastic! The hotel staff is great and the beds are great. Would recommend to first time visitors like us.

Good

Stayed for only 1 night since we were heading north for vacation the next day. Service was excellent upon arrival from valet to guest services. However, room was not ready for my 3pm check-in. I was asked to wait in the lobby and they would notify me when the time came. By 4pm I heard nothing and decided to go back to guest services. At this time the guest services counter was extremely busy with other guests checking in having similar problems. When I reached the counter I happened to have the manager wait on me who found an available room and checked me in with a small upgrade to a junior suite. My luggage was brought up to the room 45 minutes later. After finally settling in, the rest of our stay went uninterrupted. Rooms were very spacious for a boston hotel. Went to the hotel bar for a drink (City Bar) - very nice, relaxing environment. Also dined at City Table for brunch the next day - food was excellent with another great, relaxing environment before heading out for the day.

Old fashioned charm and friendly service

Only one block from my confrence (via the mall) at the more expensive and unfriendly staff at the Sheraton Hotel. A smaller old world charm hotel. The free internet service is a big bonus to any business traveler.
