We planned a long weekend to Boston and NYC and I needed to find a hotel for the Boston part of our trip. Room rates were crazy expensive for anything in the heart of the city. I somehow stumbled upon this hotel online and picked it because the location looked great and it was considerably less expensive than anything (anything!)...

We stayed one night at this B&B the night before disembarking on a Boston to Bermuda cruise on the NCL Dawn. The hotel was close to Beacon Hill and within walking distance of Boston Common and the State Capitol Building. The room we had was on the second floor (via a small elevator); however there were about 6-10 steps from...

We have just come back from a trip to Boston and New England and the last three nights were spent at the John Jefferies. I was very pleasantly impressed with this nice, clean, hotel. The room was not big but we had a kitchette (seperate). There is a very nice complimentary breakfast of juice, coffee, tea and deliciously fresh pastries....

John Jefferies House is superbly located in central Boston with easy access to the subway (less than 100 yrds) and with easy walking distance of the centre of Boston.You have a very pleasent walk up Charles Street to Beacon Hill park and the beginning of the Heritage trail.

In October 2011 we stayed twice at the John Jeffries House. Both times for two nights. It was a good alternative to all the overexpensive hotels in Boston. The location right in Beacon Hill is perfect. A subway station is just a few footsteps away. Logan International can be easily reached by public transportation. (A cab from the airport costs...

Although this is classified as a bed and breakfast it is actully a smaller scale hotel that offers a continental breakfast in the lobby floor common area. If you are looking for a romantic atmosphere with all of the comforts of home I'd say look elswhere. But if you want a clean, affordably priced room sans the bells and whistles...

I stayed here about 8 days ago as part of a women's weekend, and I am still recovering. I tried to sleep on the pull-out sofa in my room, and wound up falling through the bed frame. I hurt my shoulder pretty badly. No broken bones, but I was pretty banged up. When I called the desk to report this...

It is something between a hotel and a guesthouse. The rooms are good size, at least they are not small; the staff is fine, not too friendly but not grumpy either. The location of the hotel is great, you can walk anywhere really. The biggest problem is the atmosphere. I actually felt like I was staying at the hotel where...

Three old high school friends from Western Canada went to Boston for a week long holiday/reunion, and found the John Jeffries House on the web. The location was unbelievable; we walked to so many historic Boston locations, soaking up the amazing ambiance of this safe, clean and friendly city. JJ House is located at the foot of historic Charles street,...

I would have to say that the main asset this place has is it's location. Right by Charles St/MGH on the red line just over the road. It is a pleasant walk up Charles (or is it Cambridge?) to the Common indicating how close you are to the hub of things. Despite its proximity to some main throroughfares there was...

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
