We loved the location and setup for this place. The check-in process was easy and the room was great. The best part was how easy it was to walk to coffee shops, the subway, and great restaurants. We will totally stay here again.

I liked that we were so close (i.e. in walking distance) to every place we wanted to visit.

Property is excellently located. Room was a good size and service was spot on. All our questions answered and concerns addressed in an extremely prompt manner.

They are rethinking hospitality by not having any. There is not one person on property. You enter the building and room by code. If you dont have the code you have to call the answering service. Then they call someone to give you the code. I WAS LOCKED OUT OF MY ROOM UNTIL 2 am. It was also a room I made a booking mistake a week earlier and they would not refund so I had to use it. It was all they could do to give me a late checkout. Its very sad because the room was very nice and spacious with a kitchenette, fireplace and nice appointments. Once I got in.

Good location, comfortable bed. Only complaint is the included breakfast is a little lacking.

Convenient location, comfortable bed, clean rooms and quiet

Room decor was charming and cool. Very much enjoyed the large space with added bonus of a kitchen and full size fridge. Keurig coffee and a make up mirror- what every girl needs. Loved the location! Near to symphony, good restaurants, fun neighborhoods and parks. Only drawback: NO PARKING! The hotel should have parking passes for street parking as same is only available to residents- since a hotel guest is a resident, albeit temporary, a pass should be provided. If that’s not possible, at least some arrangement with a nearby garage should be made.

Great. Except -- some kind of "knocking" "thudding" in the walls all night long. Not sure if these were pipes.....needs to be checked out. I was on first floor. Thanks.

Hotel was pretty nice. Would stay again. Carpet wasn’t best condition and the bench at end of bed was very stained, but overall the room was nice.

This was our first time at this hotel, for a convention. The location, staff, helpfulness, and the room set-up was excellent. I was quite satisfied, plus access to many sights that Boston has to offer. We'll definately be back...thank you!

Very good location, stylish room, and great customer service.

The inn was in a great location near Copley Place, Prudential mall, Newbury Street. The rooms were spacious and included free wifi. There is no 24 hour front desk so that's something to keep in mind if you're arriving very late or if you need something late at night. The keyless entry was a bit annoying as you needed to either carry the passcode with you or always refer to it on your phone. For the price, it was an Ok experience and was fine for 1 night.

Hotel was wonderful, trendy quaint experience with beautiful room. Parking a bit confusing but wonderful once we checked in, which required brief on street parking to unload luggage and get directions. Quick walk to the Prudential and local restaurants. Hostess helpful with printing of directions to our map to Newport, RI. A wonderful first trip to New England for celebration of our 33 anniversary!

Minutes away from the Prudential Center & Newbury Street.

Located walking distance to Copley Square, Newberry St, the Boston Marathon Finish Line, the Prudential Center and Fenway Park, the Inn is quintessentially Boston. Our spacious 4th floor suite overlooked the treetops and the brilliant colors of autumn.A well appointed kitchen made it ideal for a longer stay. Great continental breakfast with outstanding coffee. Do not miss a meal at Atlantic Fish Company and window shopping inside Prudentisl Center on the way to this superb restaurant on Boylston St. And with a four poster bed with a perfectly firm mattress and tasteful furnishings throughout, iwe loved our stay at the Inn, which was more like an apartment than an impersonal hotel. I highly recommend this gem.

Hotel is perfect for a few night getaway. Close to everything.

The Inn would be ideal for someone staying multiple nights. We were only in town for the evening, so we couldn't make use of the kitchen area (a nice amenity for a longer trip). It was great being able to store a bottle of wine in a full-sized refrigerator vs. worrying about having to cram in a mini-fridge. Room was clean. Great shower (no bathtub). Location was excellent -- just a minute's walk to the shops and restaurants on Newbury Street. And our Uber ride to Fenway Park was less than $10. I'd recommend the Inn @ St. Botolph to anyone staying in Boston for a few nights.

seems like a converted apartment building, but a really nice one. really large rooms with a kitchen, super friendly & helpful staff. def would come back.

I would rate this as 3.5 stars. It is a great location with easy access to subway. But it is also walking distance to lots of things to do. In fact we walk all the way from hay market subway going past many of the sights and key areas of Boston and didn't feel tired. One down side room divider did not close.

Perfect location, comfort, and accessibility, visited with my wife and son and the one bedroom was wonderful with the partial kitchen, living room, and bedroom setup. It allowed us to sprawl out in the room and get around quickly when we were out of the room with the expo and boylston street just a block or two away and a subway stop just around the corner. completely and utterly recommended.

Dear Valued guest, we are grateful for your patronage and appreciate your feedback! While our office hours have been impacted due to Covid restrictions, we do still have staff on site. The large majority of our guests find the access code system easy to use. Unfortunately if your booking provider did not supply the hotel with your contact information as was the case here, we were not able to send you your check in information in advance. We are so glad that you enjoyed the room and hope that we can be of better service the next time you are staying in Boston.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay overall! We recently added the Keurig Coffee machines to the rooms and so far they've been a big hit. We also love the makeup mirror as well. We are sad to hear that you were frustrated with the parking situation. In order to obtain resident parking status the resident needs to provide proof to City Hall that they are a Boston resident and live in the area of parking. Unfortunately hotel guests are not considered Boston residents. There are several nearby garages to the hotel although they are pricey. We hope that you will consider staying with us again in the future!
