Over night trip

Would not recommend Thu, Jul 16, 2015
The hotel was cleanly and in a fabulous location. I felt that the front desk could have been a little more helpful and friendly. When we arrived they said our room wasn't ready. So we went through the whole tagging of the bags for them to store, only to get called 5 minuets later saying the room was ready all along. Then she asked me for the bag tags like I was a stranger trying to steal my own luggage. ( I hadn't even left the lobby yet) That whole thing put the stay off to a weird start. Many employees acted very stiff. It was a toss up if you were going to get a friendly hotel employee or not. The gentleman who took our bags to the room was an absolute sweet heart, super friendly guy. Over all the hotel experience was ok but, probably will try another location when we go to Boston again.

weekend trip

Would recommend Tue, Feb 3, 2015
We only stayed one night, but that night was great! We booked a suite with a fireplace, but I didn't know until we checked in that it was a real wood burning fireplace with your choice of wood to burn (Oak and Cherry for us). They allowed us to check in a little early and extended checkout a couple extra hours since we had a very late show to go to that night and wanted to sleep in a bit. The bed was very comfortable. Everything about the experience was great!

Two Nights at Taj

Would not recommend Wed, Nov 12, 2014
Great location but rooms look a little tired. Seems like a Fairmont type property. Maids knocked on the door three times morning of check out prior to 10am trying to come in and make up room for next guest. Not appreciated as had a young child with me. Not bad, but one of worst Taj properties I have stayed at and looks like it has not been updated since it was a Ritz. New Ritz much better.

A night at the Taj

Would recommend Mon, Oct 20, 2014
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.

Dining

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.
