Great location- slightly expensive

Was a great stay- and right on top of Newbury street, which was great for a weekend hangout. Slightly expensive, but very comfortable room and great restaurants in the hotel.

Nice night for Fenway

Great hotel only a few blocks from Fenway. Very nice beds and comfortable sitting room in the suite. We had considered staying at the Howie Jo right by the stadium, but after walking by it, we definitely did the right thing paying the extra money to stay at the Eliot. We got a much nicer hotel for the price. Make sure if you need two beds to call after booking. site said one King or two Queen beds, but the suite with two Queen beds costs $40 more.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Instead of paying $36 for Valet parking, we went around the block (behind the Harvard club) and found a parking garage for $32 for overnight parking that is secured from 11 p.m. to 10 a.m. Saves a few bucks if you don't need to leave early the next morning.

Classy hotel, great location

Friendly staff. Our only issue was the bar area. The bartender was rude, and last call was at 12 on a Sat night.

Great Boutique Hotel

Great hotel close to Park. Super friendly staff with all the amenities. Very quite, comfortable and easy to access. We were there to see the Dropkick Murphy's play three shows over St. Patrick's day. It was within walking distance of everything we wanted to do, Fenway Park, all the pubs and lobster restaurants. The only thing we found frustrating is, to get ice for the room, you had to call the front desk, and there was only a refrigerator for the honor bar, a separate refrigerator would have been nice.

Perfect Location

Having done extensive homework before heading to Boston helped make the right choices on what to see and where to go. The hotel was situated in the Back Bay, where all the action is and within walking distance of most attractions. Fenway Park is just down a few blocks and a must to visit. The Go Boston card will save you money on many attractions and restaurants. The biggest problem was getting directions. Keep your maps handy! Also, it is a city for walking so make sure your shoes are comfortable.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

If you have a Go Boston card, you do not have to stand in long lines to get into the Aquarium at the Seaport. After standing in line for 45 minutes, we found out that all we had to do was walk into the front door and present our card. Also, if you go on the Ducks, you need to present the card by 5:30pm or it isn't good that day, even though the Ducks still run later.

Great hotel for out of town gathering!

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and planned a small gathering of friends to celebrate the upcoming wedding of our friend. It was a beautiful suite and we were able to gather in our room to have some wine and cheese before heading out to dinner. The hotel staff was very accomodating and even provided us with extra wine glasses and ice when we asked. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel for a group or for a nice city break!
