“Good things come in small packages”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

Loved this hotel. It's in a great location. I got off the Copley station, and the hotel was just steps away. It's in the heart of shopping and dining and beautiful old churches. From a financial standpoint, it's the best deal I could find in Boston, too. Other hotels I checked out were so expensive, even the basic hotel chains, but the Charlesmark was about half the cost. People who like large, grande dame hotels will not like it, though. The rooms are tiny. Closet space is minimal. The lobby is not much. But the small room was hip, functional and comfortable, and I'd rather have a few extra hundreds in my pocket than a doorman and brass chandeliers. My room on the 4th floor was very quiet too, considering that the bar downstairs is jamming on a Saturday night. Wow, this place is a hotspot. So I will definitely stay here again when I return to Boston.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are more quiet, especially away from the elevator.

Good deal, great location, but stay away from rooms 106 and 107 on the weekend - the lounge area becomes a noisy bar.

Great hotel within walking distance of most of Boston's attractions.

Hotel was clean with a nice bar and breakfast room, rooms were a little small, but that's to be expected in a great ciy location unless you pay top dollar.
I would stay here again and recomend to others.

I highly recommend staying at this hotel. Yes, the rooms are small, but I never felt cramped, and they are decorated very nicely. The staff is very friendly, and the continental breakfast is decent--bagels, donuts, fruit, and coffee. The hotel is in the Back Bay, less than a block from public transportation and Newbury St. shops. Boston Common is within walking distance. The only downside was the people staying in the room next door, who we could hear fighting through the walls, but this wasn't the hotel's fault. If you're looking for a good price without a compromise in quality, choose this hotel.

Room Tip: If you want a good view, ask for a street-view room.

I loved everything about the room (the old-fashioned TV), classical music playing on the CD player, cosy bathroom.

Breakfast is the only let-down, very basic - cereal, fruit, donuts and tea/coffee all in polystyrene cup/bowls.
