Wonderful experience in an elegant old-world hotel perfectly located in Boston's Back Bay. Every member of the hotel staff was gracious, pleasant and very helpful; our suite was beautifully appointed, quiet and very comfortable. Truly a pleasurable stay and look forward to returning!

This is a very comfortable, quiet hotel in an excellent location and an outstanding restaurant adjacent. The staff was solicitous and skilled. I wish there had been coffee pot in the rooms, but I'm not sure where one would put them. Coffee from room service was fine.

the suite is quite nice but old, the bathroom is just too small, and the shower system needs to be replaced asap! it is 21th century, i doubt people who pay more than 300bucks/night for a hotel would tolerate a tiny bathroom and outdated shower system. air-conditioner a bit noisy, doorman obiviously snobby

We stayed for one night to celebrate my birthday. The suite was lovely. Our bed was so comfortable that we didn't want to leave. The staff was very nice and the location was fantastic. We can't wait to go back! Highly recommend!

We had a wonderful stay in January 2017. Considering that the hotel was built in the 1920's, it was beautifully maintained. It was great to have the living room to relax in. The bathroom was small, but there was an extra sink outside the bathroom. All of the staff were very courteous and helpful. It was only a block from...

The Eliot is a wonderful hotel and the staff are amazing! The night I arrived, Kevin met me at the door, walked me up to my room and when we found the door ajar, he went into the room ahead of me to make sure that it was clear. The customer service that they provide is exceptional! The Eliot will...

I stayed here for 4 nights and didn't want to leave! Can I live here permanently? Ha! The staff was always pleasant but not too intruding. They were there to help if you needed them, within minutes! The location is perfect for walking, trains, shopping and dining. The vintage charm of this old hotel takes you back in time. It's...

Everyone is so helpful - especially Kevin - thank you for a lovely stay. The location is great as it's close to all the shops and T station. Everything is in easy walking distance. Would definitely chose to stay here again when I come back to Boston.

I wish to thank this guest for taking the time to review her "lovely" stay and for her high rating of our hotel. It is true that the Eliot's location is amazingly convenient. Many of Boston's finest resources lie within walking distance from the hotel's front doors, including Newbury Street, with its boutique shops, cafe's and art galleries. Thank you...

I've been making the rounds of the older Boston hotels lately and have stumbled on a hidden treasure. Conveniently located at Comm Ave and Mass Ave, its close to dining and shopping on Newbury street, close to BU, MIT, Harvard and the tech companies in Cambridge. The suite layout makes the rooms feel much larger and makes it feel more...

I wish to thank this guest for taking the time to review her stay and am delighted she "will definitely be back." So many of our guests also feel that they "stumbled upon a hidden treasure" the first time they stayed with us! As a small boutique hotel, the Eliot combines comfort and design with impeccable but unobtrusive service. Tucked...

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighbourhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
