Editorial review:

A 1920s architectural landmark (the former Boston Police Headquarters) houses a truly genuine Irish hotel (which considering this is Boston, is truly saying something), located in a Back Bay location which is ideal for shopping excursions in nearby Newbury Street. The rooms are petite and fabulously appointed, with amazing baths and there is a rocking bar which is generous when pouring drinks.

Verified Reviews:

  • Shuttle service to the wrentham factory outlets - Free wifi - Great value
  • Noisy a/c - Unbelievable bed - Room had a mini-fridge
  • Overpriced valet parking - Great shower - Would highly recommend
  • No swimming pool - Fabulous service - Central location
  • Great breakfast - Rooms are small - Staff was very friendly

            We loved the Back Bay - beautiful hotel, great location and wonderful staff. Highly recommend and would definately come back!

            I love their linens - sheets and towels. The bed was very comfortable. The staff was very accommodating. The location in Boston was very convenient.

            There was only one nightstand in our room so one side of the bed had no place to put glasses, cell phone, glass of water, etc.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            The amenities were fabulous! And the bathroom and shower was very nice.

            The air conditioner was very loud! It only had one speed for the fan and could not be turned down. I would've liked to open the window instead. The room seemed quite small for the amount we were paying. There wasn't enough room to even have a night stand on my side of the bed.

            Nice modern rooms with quality all around...

            Staff incredible friendly, helpful with directions, genuine about their service to please and make your over all Boston trip smooth, pleasant, it was! Overall a very considerate staff. Rooms very cozy, nice balance of old antique charm, yet modern, a nice balance created, a room that seems like a home. Incredible robes provided, bathroom and lighting, beautiful, worth bumping up to deluxe accommodation with bed turn down service. Clean, rooms quiet a unique charm, experience of old world meets modern amenities. well thought out.

            seem to have trouble with keys not working for my two days there, but easily remedy, phones in hallways for calling desk to be let in, very friendly prompt letting me in, one staff member asked me for id to get in my room my second day there.

            The staff was extremely helpful, friendly and thoughtful. The Stanhope Grille, the hotel restaurant was fabulous. Location was convenient.

            Awesome hotel! The staff were friendly and considerate and the room is extremely clean with lots of space!

            We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Back Bay Hotel. We try to stay in historic hotels and inns whenever possible, and the Back Bay has managed to maintain the historic character of the building, while providing the design and comfort of a new hotel. My teenage children often roll their eyes when we tell them we are staying in an historic hotel -- this time, they loved it!

            Well located near Back Bay Station, it's a very comfortable hotel, with nice bedrooms, well equipped, and a very friendly staff. The bed was magnificient!

            Being picky, you could say that many rooms don't offer a nice view or no view at all.

            the room was clean and whilst it is a minor point I liked the bathroom products.

            Unfortunately I suffered food poisoning on my last night when I had dinner in the restaurant. It was not rejected immediately and I was ill during the night and the following day. I did not find the staff to helpful over this matter. It is only the second time I have suffered food poisoning at a hotel (I travel a great deal) but I have never endured this from meat. Also I was let down with the meeting rooms each time causing huge inconvenience. This is not uncommon at hotels which is why I requested a room with seating.

            Need to replace the carpet in room 616, stained with tar or something black from someone's shoe, makes the room seem dirty
