Luxuriously refined classic hotel overlooking Boston's Public Garden

The Taj Boston is one of the city's most desirable hotels with the Public Garden and Boston Common in the backyard and upscale boutiques on Newbury Street out the front door. Since 1927, a stately lobby with refined décor and fine art has welcomed guests. A 2002 multimillion-dollar renovation restored the hotel to its original glory in honor of the Taj's 75th anniversary. Elegant rooms offer twice-daily housekeeping and top-notch amenities. Guests can walk to Copley Place, the theater district and other Boston attractions from this central hotel.

  • 2002 multimillion-dollar restoration
  • Mobil four star rating and 2010 Travel + Leisure World's Best award

Rooms
Stately elegance defines the hotel's 273 guest rooms, including 45 expansive suites with rich wall coverings, lush fabrics and a regal color palette. Plush bedding, comfy terrycloth robes, marble vanities and luxe bath products add to the allure. Guests enjoy twice-daily housekeeping services with evening turndown. Most rooms have views of either the Public Garden or Newbury Street and some suites have wood-burning fireplaces. High-speed Internet is available (fees apply).
Features

The 2002 multimillion-dollar renovation returned the Taj to its former glory, but amenities still add modern touches.

A night at the Taj

My gal and I capped a New England fall colors tour with a night in Boston at the Taj. This hotel is the former Ritz. It's a beautiful building and the location can not be beat, overlooking Boston Garden and steps away from Newbury and Beacon Streets. Our only complaint: the hotel still bears the '80s Ritz decor. Everything is flowery, busy and grandma-like...the latter description coming from a man in his 60s! It REALLY needs new furniture, wallpaper (or no wallpaper, just paint) and new carpeting but other than that a wonderful place to stay.

Go to the North End for a meal. It's about a mile from the hotel. We walked there and enjoyed a marvelous "Little Italy" experience.

Great location and helpful staff

Was in Boston for 3 days primarily for college visits with my daughter. We found we were in a very beautiful and perfect location to explore Boston both walking and using public transportation. The Hotel was lovely , comfortable and clean and the staff were all very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would happily stay there again the next time I return to Boston.

Wonderful experience

I would say this is hotel is among the few best hotels I have stayed during my lifetime. Their attention to details and service quality is exception. It is definitely a qualified 5 star hotel. And when you look at the price tag as well, you will be amazed again.
