Price was right.

Posted 24-Mar-2015
Hard to find entrance. Lobby was nice. Our floor was not. Old and not taken care of. Room was super small. Old looking. Clean but run down. Bath was straight out of the 70's. Bed was good. Shower pressure was great.

Overall a great deal. This is quite picky, but the beds were rather uncomfortable and for 3 nights it got a little old. The free breakfast was a little lackluster, but once again for the price it's a steal. Location was fantastic. Would strongly recommend grabbing a 7 day T pass (for $19) the walk to the Back Bay station is not even 5 minutes. Overall 4/5 stars would recommend.

HISTORIC BUT DATED.

Posted 22-Mar-2015
I came to Boston for a conference. I chose the Boston Common Hotel because the venue the organizer had chosen was a $300+ hotel. The Boston Common Hotel had a good location at Copley Square and about a 5 minute walk from the Common. The hotel itself was historic but very dated. The lobby was nice but the rooms were last remodeled in the 1960's, beige 4" tiles in the bathroom and furniture from the early '80s. It was reasonably clean but I spilled something on the pillowcase and it wasn't changed afterwards. The front staff were helpful and pleasant. They pointed me to a gym that was close by that offered a free 1 week trial membership. Overall the stay was otherwise smooth and checkout was fine.

Great Location

Posted 19-Mar-2015
Cons: No
Location: Mcgreevys, Prudential Center, Fenway Stadium, Top of the Hub Restaurant- we walked everywhere
Close to everything and staff was extremely nice/accommodating. I broke my only boots that I brought with me and the staff went out of their way to bring me glue to fix them. They also had a place for us to leave our luggage after checkout since our flight wasn't for a few more hours. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars on facilities was because it was a bit older but in a way added to the experience. Place was very clean. Would definitely stay again.

費用相当なホテルです

Posted 17-Mar-2015
Pros: 朝食がついていることは助かりました!
二人で滞在しましたが、部屋にははソファー的なものはなく、座り心地の悪い椅子が一つだけでしたので、もう一人はベッドに座っている状態でした。 近くにはたくさんホテルがあります。 このホテルは値段相当の内容で、快適さや、リラックスしたいなら、 もうワンクラス上のホテルをお勧めします。

Expedia needs more information on this location

Posted 9-Mar-2015
Pros: Beautiful building
Cons: Information prior to booking and the bathrooms should be updated
Location: The Boston Common is directly across from one of the entrances to the Copley Center -near Au Bon Pain. So this is in a great area
This hotel is a beautiful old building in the Back Bay of Boston. The rooms are older with not a lot of counter space in the bathrooms...which was fine. My biggest issue with this hotel is that there is not an entrance to the hotel that does not require you to carry your bags up stairs. This would not be a problem if they had a doorman-which they do not. When I was trying to get my bags up the stairs, the receptionist ignored that I was even there. Like I said, the building is a great older building. If you are driving - there is parking next to the hotel and you can drive in right in front of the door that leads to the Boston Common...but when you leave you either have to haul your bags up 30+ stairs to get to the elevator for the garage or you have to walk completely around the block to get to an entrance that does not require steps. The hotel was fine, but if you are alone or you are not arriving and leaving by cab-I would book somewhere else. The site that we reserve from should definitely have more information for the traveler

Expensive for nothing

Posted 7-Mar-2015
Pros: Only the location
Cons: Everything
Location: Y ouare on the center... the only advantage
It's a good hotel if you don't pay or your company pay for your old and dirty room. The staff looks disappointed and if you are a foreigner no one take care of you.

Great location - very freindly staff

Posted 5-Mar-2015
Pros: Room size, as was just me so it was just the right size & I'm a big guy so comfy bed & shower am all good. Again staff all seemed so very helpful.
Cons: maybe the breakfast as it was just bread for the most part but did like the variety of juices as well. Having the tv central to the bed maybe.
Location: location as great as I like bars & there was a plenty within walking distance. Was easy to find as it stood out being an old brick building.
location - location - location!!! Right by the rail system, resturants, bars & even a Trader Joe's. I'm a pretty simple person as was never really @ the hotel other then to sleep or a quick break. Right by the airport shuttle as well. Staff very friendly & helpful. Lots of info at the hotel on things to do & places to go & again staff were always willing to help. Staff 5 stars!!!
