A great night out at the Taj Boston

I work in Boston and live in the suburbs and sometimes when we have concerts and such to go to we get a room and spend the night. The Taj was the best place we've stayed yet. Park Plaza is a bit old, the Lenox is quaint and a beautiful building but small (for about the same money as the Taj). We saw Nora Jones at the Wang Center, had desert at Finale and ate breakfast at the Four Seasons. We walked everywhere. We did take the Green Line E train two stops from Arlington to the Pru to walk to and from Giacomo's in the quaint South End for dinner. But we later walked to the Pru from the Taj and it took us about 15 minutes down Newbury St and though Copley Square. Qur room, its closets and our two room bathroom was absolutely huge. It seemed much bigger than described. Loved it!

First night at the Boston Taj Hotel

We stayed at the hotel because of its location and had the most pleasant experience. Staff was very helpful. Room was as expected. Breakfast was outstanding. Enjoyed every bit of it. Summary: excellent value even for the prize.

La Voile Boston Brasserie is a great, low-key French restaurant that is a 10-minute walk from the hotel. Also, Artu on Beacon Hill is intimate and has great, traditional Italian food.

Not worth the $

for the cost of the room ($400/night for a premier king) I was very disappointed, the shower drain was poor and there was no fan in the bathroom. The rooms were small, and the 'garden view' was pretty much non existent (we were on the 5th floor) Also it seemed to take a long time to get our ice buckets which we had asked to stay in the room in the first place but I don't think the maids could read English unfortunately. Also I know it was late at night 12am but there was no one to hail a cab for you. I was very disappointing for that amount of money I thought it would have been 10 times nicer, save your money, you could get similar deal at a Marriott etc. and wouldn't even noticed the difference. I live in the city (this was a special night out)and trust me you can stay somewhere else close to everything for a better deal.

Taj Boston - Not what it is rated as!

Upon arrival, we took showers and were not thrilled with the fact that the shower was at best warm. We called the front desk and they said they would have engineering check into the matter. This scenario played out three times and we didn't have hot water until we checked out. We had to bed to have some sort of finanical consideration given and that wasn't much. Also, upon check-out, I called and attempted to give the bell captain our valet# so they could retrieve our car - the bell captain said not to bother and it would be no problem getting the car when we came down. The was completely wrong, instead we waited 30 minutes and nobody appeared to understand what happened to the car. Just a bad service experience in general!

An abundance of first rate dining. We've always chosen the TAJ (and former Ritz) when visiting Boston - for its proximity to a variety of amenities.

Taj Boston from 9/24 through 9/30/09

This hotel does not compare with the Taj hotels in India. It was a super location, the staff was great, the room and the bathroom were large, the bed was great, but the room service and the restaurant were grossly overpriced.
