The staff was phenomenal. Everyone was so accommodating and willing to help with a smile. Loved the proximity to Newberry Street and BU. It was great!!

Great hotel, wonderful staff and fabulous location

Great staff. Great locations. Suites are perfect especially if traveling with a family.

Comfortable, elegant hotel right near shops and subway. Staff was lovely. I had a beautiful room that was quiet and comfortable. I truly enjoyed my stay.

The location was very convenient for us. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend.

Great location and hotel. Orbitz rates were 20% higher than booking direct!

Beautiful hotel! Staff was extremely friendly and a great location. We will definitely stay again! Thank you.

Excellent experience. The hotel was very cleanly and the staff were wonderful.

Room could never warm up during the cold weekend. Bed was small, but comfortable. Staff were excellent! Location perfect. We will return when it is warmer!

As the title suggests, this is a wonderful, old school (with modern amenities) hotel which is in the middle of downtown Boston and well worth the price. We had a suite which was particularly nice. Staff very helpful and attentive if something is requested.

Excellent hotel. Received a room upgrade upon arrival, given a 2 room suite. Staff is terrific, very friendly and helpful. I will stay here again when returning to Boston.

The hotel room was very nice and the staff was phenomenal! They exceeded my expectations and were very accommodating. Valet handled our car very well. Thanks Eliot Hotel!

My room was beautifully maintained old style boutique. Staff were extremely friendly. Lastly, although not necessarily important for vacationers, The minibar was priced very well. Usually hotels will charge you five dollars for a small bag of chips, but everything was very reasonable.

If you're looking to shop Newberry St., walk to Boston Commons, Enjoy fine dining and have super easy access to the T Train stop, this is your place. Beautiful old world charm and excellent service by the staff. Two great restaurants off the lobby: High End French American and a Stylish Sushi Bar. However, our stay wasn't perfect and not worth the high price tag. Our room looked out to an alley, the Wifi barely worked, the room furnishings, doors, etc. were a bit banged up, the bathroom was tiny and the bed was terrible: A full size with a super soft mattress did not offer a good night sleep for two people. I would still recommend this hotel, but just make sure you request a queen or king bed with a newer mattress.

The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and sufficient. On the small side but not sure what the norm is for the area as this was our first visit to Boston. Location great! Staff made up for any shortcomings! Would recommend and will return.

We live in the Boston area but wanted to treat ourselves to a special evening. We'd seen the hotel while walking in the neighbourhood and have wanted to stay for a while. It was better than we'd hoped! The staff were kind and helpful, the area was quiet and picturesque and the room was beautiful. A perfect experience!

Great for site seeing. Sushi restaurant was great as is Clio. Got upgraded to a suite which was a real plus. Internet is horrible.

This is a very classy hotel with roomy accommodations and top-notch dining options. The façade was under renovation when I stayed but the interior of the lobby and the room was terrific. Great value.

I have stayed there several times over many years and have never been disappointed

I stayed at the Eliot from Christmas Day through the weeekend. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful, our suite was beautiful and the location was terrific. The restaurant and sushi bar are exceptional. I highly recommend The Eliot Hotel.
