You can get to Copley Place and the Pru without going outside so weather is not an issue. Lots of restaurants nearby including Eataly. Symphony Hall is walkable. You can also walk down Newbury Street to the Public Garden. Hotel is small enough that you're not overwhelmed by people everywhere like the Marriott nearby. Parking is expensive! No coffee/tea in lobby - just in room.
What you would expect from a Westin. Clean, fairly modern rooms, big TV, complimentary bottled water, coffee and tea. It's connect by skywalks to other malls so you can get to many places without even hitting the street. Had little interaction with the staff but they were all courteous and efficient.
The Westin is located in the heart of Boston with easy access to public transportation, restaurants and shopping. Great location for business travelers. Customer service was also great. Definitely worth checking out for your next business trip!
An excellent Boston experience all around
Didn't like how the website advertises a pool and spa but they have neither.
No pool due to renovations...not mentioned when reservations were made...not explained when checked in...
Arrived in Boston just in time for a heavy snowfall accompanied with a vicious wind. Being from snowy Colorado I was well aware of fast changing weather conditions. The Westin staff were also aware and took on the opportunity to show off their talent. These people know how to take care of customers with their great service, personalities and that always lovely humor. I'll be back!
Couldn't ask for a better location. No free wifi. Only basic tv channels.
The shower kept running hot and cold and I could not set a temperature that was relatively consistent
Location, very comfortable bed Bathroom too small, water with very low pressure
Location Staff was inattentive and seemed bored. I arranged for a crib for my room for my son and upon arrival, it was not in the room which was hugely inconvenient. I had to call to have it brought up. Also, wifi should be free in this hotel.
The service was great. The staff caters to your every need. The room was very comfortable and provided a nice view of the city.
The staff was extremely attentive and eager to help.
the entire experience was fantastic. The Concierge, Heather, was outstanding.
The room was a good size and the facilities very good with very good service to support
Very comfortable bed and perfectly situated Unrequested early morning wake up call on check out date
Back bay location is perfect Coffee in lobby and Lobby in general Room furnishings Bathroom Valet parking very slow
Excellent and enjoyable stay at the hotel. The hotel staff were very professional and helpful. The facilities were ideal. Cuffs bar is great fun. Good location not noisy, shops and sights not far to walk. N/A
The location is great, the restaurant and bar has good food and drinks, the staff was friendly and helpful. We booked three rooms at this hotel because there were 6 of us and we all booked the same type of room but they tried giving one couple in our party a smaller room, but they did fix it so that was good. Also, the refrigerator in our room was broken, but they also came and fixed that right away.
I loved the robes, comfort of the bed and pillows, provided toiletries in the bathroom. We also discovered that there was a towel warmer which was very nice. The tv was great- there was a fridge which came in handy when we had left over food. The in room keurig and travel cup was super convenient There was Giant bottle of FIJI water sitting by the coffee machine labeled that it would cost $7.00 for each if consumed. Kind of annoying I wanted them the entire time but couldn't get over the price.... I can't pay $7 for water.
good hotel, good location, great!
The location was excellent - just a short walk from Boston Commons, Copley Square, the Green and Orange T lines and commuter lines, and several great restaurants. The room was cozy and provided the necessary amenities and the bed was very comfortable. Heather the concierge went above and beyond our expectations in handling our requests and helping out with some post-Boston Marathon logistics. All of the staff from check-in to the housekeeping staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The hotel displayed the charm of a historical building but with all of the necessary modern conveniences. The elevators were a bit small and we had to pass one up at times when there were more than a couple of people waiting or when they were full. The lobby was a bit small and was a bit of a bottleneck during and after check-in. The Precinct bar had a good energy and good drink selection but the food and desserts were just okay (we did not get a chance to try the restaurant). We wish there was a pool or hot tub, which would have been perfect for post-race recovery.
Quiet for the location
Everything was walking distance from the hotel. Staff was really friendly.
Elevators are a disaster, unless you love waiting. No free wifi in the rooms (what year is this????). No fridge in rooms (what year is this???)
It is in the Copley Plaza and as such closed to every thing and like other hotels in Boston, too expensive for what one gets in return, but this one was less expensive. Though Internet was available, only at exorbitant price; amenities in the room, none; one plain bottle of water was $7.50, though we had a nice view to the street, still the room was not cozy, rather detached , impersonal and with white all around gives the sensation one is in a hospital and it is sickening. no night reading lights. In the middle of night to much lights moving to the room frm out side.. It is clear one is not at home!
Lovely hotel. Elevator system very efficient. Rooms very spacious. Noisy neighbors. Called front desk and they didn't seem to do anything.
The location was great. For $640/night there were zero amenities. Such as, the room came with 2 keurig pods, if you needed more (for your 4 night stay) they would happily provide them for you for $1 per kcup. Wifi was extra. Oh, there was a continental breakfast on the 28th floor however, for my $640/night that was not included in my stay. Not sure how you upgraded to coffee and a donut.
the room was very clean,great view of the city and the bed was fantatic.will stay again
the view was the best. Have to get private parking, costed same as my stay at the hotel. waited for 1 hour and made 5 calls to get brushes.
I think the hotel feels too old.
Located in large shopping mall in center of town. Very clean and relatively comfortable. Water bottle in room cost $7.50. Elevators very slow on occasion. Very old TV system with limited HD channel selection.
The amenities, the restaurants, the staff, the rooms were all very nice. I was very upset with the fact that my room had no internet access other than paying $13 to $17 a day. I am sure when I made my reservation through Kayak that in the description of the room it read that internet access was included. I called the concierge desk but they were of no help to me. As nice as my stay was, I would not stay at this hotel again nor would I recommend it. The elevators were a mess during my stay too. Everyone staying there was upset and complaining about the incredibly long wait times.
I recommend valet parking. Location is excellent for shopping too and staff are great. Bathroom was not cleaned properly may be the product they used and did not finish wiping down because toilet cover and seat was sticky.
It was in walking distance to restaurants, shopping and many historical sites. I had an amazing view of the harbor and the room was very comfortable and clean Although the food was good the menu needs more variety
The food, room service staff, the bed, the ambiance. The arrogance of hotelstaff, the way they snubb/address eachother when they do not want to do a task themselves, are gossiping when idle and the lack of interest in guests.
Deluxe room - lots of space, good desk/lighting/reading chair, excellent bed, large marble bath and amenities. OAK is a great bar and restaurant with excellent food and lively vibe. Room service was prompt, friendly and delicious. And the hotel has a sweet black Lab to welcome guests. Noise from hall seeps in through the old wood doors; not really a problem until a couple drunk bros came in at 4AM and spent 20 minutes in the hall being enthusiastic.
The interior of the hotel. That was about it. The room was not only small but watching tv was only possible sitting on the edge of the bed on the side. Miserable view. Were prepared to pay more for another room. Briefly - no hotel fully bo No value for a lot of money. Breakfast in the Oakroom was one morning being served by a friendly and polite waiter but the next day it was a very arrogant service as if we had to be thankful to be served.
Stunning hotel, very friendly and accommodating staff, perfect location for all of Boston Construction on church across from my room, started early, relentless but hotel had no control over it
staff were very friendly and it was in the best location of Boston. Overall it was an excellent choice - value for the money I paid. At my surprise, opon checking out they charged the normal rate, which was twice more expensive than the Booking.com price. Then I had to show the Booking.com e-mail to bring the price back to the one at which the booking was made. It was a cumbersome process. The hotel staff told me that this kind of problem often took place with the Booking .com.
The hotel was very clean and very roomy. It also was close to the T Things I didn't like were.. Couldn't get the room to feel completely warm.set thermostat to 78 it barely hit 70. Parked in the parking garage a block away for $22 for the weekend compared to the hotel wanting to charge me $51 to park per day kind of a no brainier. Who's there was a pool or hot tub to relax in during our stay.
Staff attentive. Nice decor. Great location. A little pricey. Not way high. Just a little.
Great location for shopping. Gold floor staff were very attentive. Worth the upgrade, especially as the Oak bar was so crowded on Saturday night. The Gold lounge was a pleasant oasis.
Loved the chandeliers, mirrors, marble, location, service No shop in hotel for sodas, snacks, ice cream
location value for money
Great location with warm and welcoming staff. Hold level was excellent.
- Location - Rooms were nice - Price was reasonable - We stayed there partly because of the rooftop pool, but they sold so many "day passes" on the weekends, that hotel guests like us couldn't get a chair. It was an amenity that they sold right out from under us. Boo!
beds were comfy room was so dirty
Location was excellent! Our shower head was spraying onto the ceiling and wall. It made puddle in our bathroom.
Staff was very attentive. Great gym! No indoor pool :-(
The location is good. Walkable to many attractions and restaurants. T stop right in front. They didn't have our room ready at the check in time. The sink was clogged with what looked like old vomit. The service was slow. The rooftop pool is tiny as is the area. I definitely wouldn't pay all that money to stay there.
Luxurious rooms Well equipped Nice ammenities
The bell man Lanis, was wonderful. He was funny and eager to help me. He gave good advice and great recommendations
Very clean and comfortable
The staff was very friendly and eager to make our stay as pleasant and comfortable as they could. The rooms were very comfortable. and quiet. The kids really had a good time in the pool. I found a bobby pin in the bathroom that didn't belong to us. We ran out of shampoo and conditioner. There was no soap holder in the bathroom. The soap bars were too small for the wire holder There were no hand bars in the tub enclosure that an older person,such as myself, could hold on for support while leaning over to wash their feet.
Large bed. Excellent view. Robes were comfortable. Location was amazing. Walls were thin.
Easy to get to many places. Wonderful room double beds and separate table and chairs. We were on college visits, close to T station, shopping and even a visit to the Boston Public Library. Staff was very attentive.
Yet another fine experience at The Colonnade! Comfortable rooms, great staff, Rooftop Pool and a Rubber Duck!!! Highly recommend!
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful and very clean. Andrew and the valet boys were wonderful. Very professional. You could barely turn around in the, less than spacious, bathroom.
Location is centrally located The room was small and not noise proof
The style of the hotel, convenient location and valet parking were nice. They were accommodating with our bags since arriving early. There was nothing spectacular about this hotel. They made us wait until after 3 pm to check in. I gave the woman at the front desk our phone number while we walked around the city so she could let us know when our room was ready. We walked back to the hotel, it was after 3 and still couldn't check in so we waited in the lobby for about another 30 mins. We finally approached the front desk again and it appeared they had forgot to tell us it was ready. The rooms were nice and location convienent but that's about it. It worked well for one night but I wouldn't stay there for an extended period of time.
Nothing, really. The front desk concierge was not at all helpful. He was aloof, abrupt and dismissive. We mistakenly booked a room with one bed instead of two and when we had a rollaway bed delivered it came with only one thin blanket. We had to ask twice for more blankets. We were put in a handicap room which was dark, dismal and clearly not used frequently. There were no electrical outlets to charge our phones (we unplugged a light fixture.) There were no glasses in the bathroom. We were treated to the droning music from the downstairs dance club until 2 AM. There was nothing redeeming about our stay except good pancakes in the morning.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location, No restaurant, Two nights I could hear the tenant above me as it sounded like he was bouncing a bowling ball. Only lasted a few minutes each night but not desirable at 11 pm
Easy check in, clean room and great location. Staff was friendly, professional and eager to help. I had an issue with the town car service they provided (no fault of their own) and they resolved it promptly with apologies. recommend without reservation.
Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Short walking distance to attractions. Check out was not until 12pm, maid knocked on door the door four times from 8am till 11:36am. Felt like was being rushed out.
Comfortable beds. Nicey decorated room. Pleasant staff. Party crowd in the hallways from 3:30 until 4:30 am even after I asked them to quiet down. Valet parking is $ 50 while a public parking lot is accross the street. Breakfast not included.
The convenience of the location next to Prudential with some of the best local fine dining, and the hospitality of the staff deserve special recognition. The overall ambience is excellent; I highly recommend this place.
Comfortable room and helpful staff. House keeping staff entered the room without knocking and need to be more aware of guests who are in their rooms.
This was a great hotel for the price, right in the heart of Boston. The room was nice and clean, and the free wifi was a bonus. I arrived late and needed to get dinner, but the restaurant was closed. The staff recommended Star Market, the 24 hour grocery store (LOL), but walking a couple blocks I found a nearby bar that was still serving food.
The hotel staff was so courteous and friendly! We were traveling for our anniversary and they were so nice to upgrade our room AND allow us early check-in after we arrived from an early morning flight. I liked the proximity to Boylston and Newberry St. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Boston. If the hotel was located a little closer to the freedom trail, it would have been perfect for our trip! We didn't mind walking, but did notice it wasn't as central as we thought.
Velbeliggende, klassisk stil der passer til bygningens alder og udseende. Servicen var i top på alle punkter
Lenox er et internationalt hotel og har alle de faciliteter som man kunne efterspørge. Meget tilfreds med opholdet.
Overall cleanliness, good value for your money.
Great location. Staff at the front desk, especially Jason and Laura, were friendly and helpful. Rooms were small but clean and comfortable. The front lobby and elevator smelled awful. We were satisfied enough but will definitely stay somewhere else next time.
