Gracious and convenient

The bathroom was most memorable -- big, perfect and immaculate. But every inch of that space came at the expense of the room, which was not quite the size offered by a Holiday Inn. But it too was squeaky clean. The staff was terrific (except for the maid who entered as she knocked). But the hotel is compromised by being part of a large residential project. The residents get all the best views; the hotel guests are on the bottom. The location isn't quite as good as The Four Seasons or even the Taj. Understandably, the Fairmont Copley Plaza and The Parker House have far more genteel charm.

Enjoyed Bricco, an Italian restaurant on the North side, enough to go back on consecutive nights.

staff and doormen were great

The hotel itself lacked the charm of the Ritz. The hotel rooms were clean but were lacking the feel of a top rated hotel that I remembered. I was surprised that there was no area for fine dining but rather a small restaurant that was largely seafood oriented. Rooms were clean and the staff was wonderful. I would be hard pressed to recommend this hotel based on the cost and what was delivered.

Very nice

The staff, front doorman to housekeeping make you feel so welcome. Even upon checkout, we were offered a bottle of water...a very nice gesture. There is valet parking and on-site self park, which be pricey. Consider carefully if you need a car - Boston roads are very confusing anyway. The location is a very short distance from Boston Commons and many theaters; a perfection location for both.
