The hotel is very nicely located on the edge of Backbay but without being on a very commercial street. The service was impeccable all around and the room was very comfortable. I will definitely stay at the Eliot during my next trip.

I wish to thank this guest for taking the time to review his stay and for the wonderful rating. The Eliot is situated in Boston's elegant Back Bay district on park-like Commonwealth Avenue. The residential location is just one block away from the beginning of Newbury Street, one of the country's leading shopping streets filled with boutiques, restaurants, cafes and art galleries. I'm delighted this guest derived such a positive stay and look forward to welcoming him back once again.

I wish to thank this guest for taking the time to review his stay, but regret his experience regarding housekeeping services. The Eliot has won awards for our high level of housekeeping service and for our dedicated and proactive staff. Prospective guests may find it beneficial to realize that one simply may place the "Do Not Disturb" placard on their door which will be strictly respected by our entire staff. Additionally, as a personalized service hotel, guests may also communicate with the front desk at any time to designate times for when they wish housekeeping, or any other, hotel service. It is a shame that this guest had to experience such distress unnecessarily, but I hope others may find utility from this guest's experience.

We recently stayed at The Eliot during a quick trip to Boston. It was a superb experience. The room was beautiful, the bed comfortable, the shower powerful, the linens sumptuous and everything was impeccably clean. But what really made this an incomparable stay was the amazing staff. EVERYONE was professional, courteous, helpful, knowledgeable, kind. In a world that seems to be quickly losing this kind of personal attention and attention to detail, the Eliot staff is deserving of high praise. Thank you all so very much!

I wish to thank these guests for taking the time to review their stay and for the superlative rating. As a staff that is genuinely caring and dedicated to providing personalized service, it is very gratifying to know how evident this was to these guests. It's true that in our hurried, and often virtual world, our personal attention to detail and desire to see each guest as the unique person they are, allows our guests to feel recognized and attended to. We know this traditional and classic model of guest service is so very much appreciated by our patrons. Thank you "JaFiVermont," you are most welcome!

We thought we'd treat ourselves at the end of our New England trip so we chose the Eliot hotel. We're glad we did! We arrived at midday and to our surprise our room was ready and we were up graded to a suite. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

In town for a graduation, our family had a wonderful stay at the Eliot. The staff is attentive and professional. The location is perfect, walking distance to many shops, restaurants and activities, like Fenway for a game or a stroll through Boston Commons. Easy access to the T. Some in the group went for runs along the Charles. I will definitely stay at the Eliot in the future.

I wish to thank this guest for taking the time to review her stay and for the wonderful rating. It is always a pleasure to be chosen as the hotel to stay for special occasions, and we extend congratulations to the graduate. It's true that the Eliot occupies an enviable location in Boston's elegant Back Bay district, which is also super-convenient. So many of Boston's resources lie just outside of our front door within walking distance. I'm delighted this guest "enjoyed our stay at the Eliot Hotel." It would be my pleasure to welcome her back once again.

I wish to thank this guest for taking the time to review her stay and for the generous rating. I regret that the bathroom and suite size did not meet this guest's expectations. Our one-bedroom suites are approximately 425sf, (40 Sq meters), and consist of a bedroom, separated by double French doors from a full-sized living room. Pictures of our accommodations are available in the "gallery" tab on our web-site. I hope, overall, that this guest enjoyed her stay at the Eliot and in Boston, and appreciate the kind praise for our staff and location.
