Recent guest reviews

Very quick stop. But very clean and comfort hotel

Always stay here when I come to town for work. I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Stayed one night and here's the pros and cons: Pros: Nice hotel Excellent service Clean Well located Cons: People book rooms to have little parties, they drink and can be noisy. They talk/laugh loud on the hallways at 2, 3, 4am

Great location - second time to stay & will be staying here on return visits!

I found staff from valet to be wonderful and incredibly helpful. The room was very nice but a small frig would have been a big help. Its is a nice hotel with modernistic trappings. I was visiting someone in hospital, so it was pleasure but location I was seeking. It was very much on the pricey side but a nice experience. The only knock I would have was on Saturday morning the noise, and I could not tell if it was inside or on the street... but it awoke me... so sound deadening left much to be desired! Thank you.

Very clean, comfortable room. Staff courteous and helpful.

Clean, modern, wonderful, and central Boston location!

Love the option to either enjoy the rhythms of downtown Boston or have a relaxing and quiet environment

Loved our stay at The Godfrey Boston. Walking distance to everything we enjoyed. Personable staff - nice!!

Upon checking in we were told we had an inside room. That is not what was requested. We upgraded for $40 per night. Couple traveling with were not charged anything. When asking for any information i.e. Restaurants, sight seeing, we could never get a correct answer. There is not an restaurant for any kind of breakfast,lunch or dinner located in the hotel. Bar in the hotel doesn't open until 4, and just horrible service there. Our vacation was booked for a week. The last straw was when we are in our room changing, housekeeping walks in and asks aren't you checking out. We said no and please leave our room. Finally we've had it and wanted to get as far away as we could. Checked out. Traveled to other parts of this beautiful area. Hint. Don't stay at the Godfrey.

The hotel was clean and centrally located to everything we wanted to see. Very comfortable bed and the shower was the best I've ever had! Washed away every ache. Staff were courteous and helpful.

This was a fanstastic hotel--fabulous location, clean, luxurious, and modern. Four stars because they gave me a second floor hotel room and the lobby is blasting techno music (like club/lounge style techno music) until 1am. So if you are coming there to sleep before 1:00am, make sure they don't give you a second floor room. The pounding from the bass in the music on the ground floor WILL be heard and will keep you up!! They did honor my request to change rooms to a higher floor, and from then on my stay was perfect.

Hotel staff welcomed us with opened arms. Very friendly. Room very clean and inviting (great shower, huge TV screen) Lily very cordial and gave us a great tip on where to go for breakfast. Very pleased staff was able to store our luggage after checkout so we could attend Red Sox game

Pros: Great staff. Vibrant lobby. Good location. Cons: Not a good value. Small, noisy rooms. Terrible bathroom door offering no privacy. Don't think I would stay here again.

Bedding had an odor, room did not have any drawers or view. Desk had me going initially into wrong room.

It was a very good experience. The staffs are ver friendly and helpful. Definitely will come when visiting Boston

I stay at this hotel anytime I can! It's a great location, cleanest rooms and most importantly it's always quiet and peaceful. Impeccable.

Very nice hotel located in a great area. Easy access to a lot of history.

The staff was very nice. Everyone was attentive. Nice location and close to the T.

Only complaint is the music is so loud and incredibly obnoxious in the lobby. This isn't Abercrombie or H&M people, it's a hotel! Rooms on the small side too.
