When we arrived the hotel was sold out and did not go or our "guaranteed reservation" for a double room. We were instead offered a full size bed and a cot for the same rate even though the room sells for $50 less. Spent most of our night on the phone with Kayak who didn't care. Says it's non refundable yet how they can say it's a guaranteed reservation when clearly it's a maybe! Horrible customer service by hotel manager and kayak. Hotel didn't offer to call around or find other accommodations for us.
Although small, the room was comfortable and the shower quite lovely. Plenty of hot water in the morning. A blizzard was expected so I decided to check out a day early, and this was hassle free. I did not ask for the name of the person who helped me with the checkout, but she was very polite and extremely helpful. The door man and valet folks were quick to bring my car and wish me a safe journey. Overall a very pleasant stay and I was able to accomplish that which I was in town for. I found sleep very difficult due to the noise level throughout the first night of my stay, which was a Tuesday. Many drunk people coming to rooms late very loud in the hallway and then one couple in the room next to mine arguing until approximately 4am.
Had to move rooms 3, almost 4, times. The whole situation was handled very poorly until we finally were helped by a manager. Just wish it did not have to get that far... Overall, the hotel is extremely outdated, struggled to control the temperature in the room and the walls were so thin we heard a screaming child all night. Images online are extremely deceiving and lead to a disappointing experience as a whole.
Not a detail was missed. Truly a 5-star experience!
The staff at the back hotel bar was friendly, excellent and accommodating when the kitchen was about to close in 5 minutes. He even offered to get Guinness on tap from the front bar the Last Hurray. Rooms were clean and they were able to accommodate us with a better view. Bed is comfortable and linens are nice thread count. Decor is classic, wood paneled, gold, red and mustard yellow-- and reminded us of Stephen King's The Shining (where the film was made). Wifi is not included if you book through a third party-- they should change this policy as a courtesy. Drainage in tub was a little slow but this is true of most Boston older buildings.
Location is fantastic--easy walking distance to all the places of interest. Hotel is itself a historical landmark. Room was rather small, no free wifi.
Nice Location Room was tiny, outdated decorations, you spend hundreds on a room and they want to charge you $10 day for internet. Stay somewhere else !
Rooms small. Views terrible. Bathroom really small. If you can, select another hotel. Small. Needs renovations
Samantha was great as we were checking in. We were a little early for check in so she said the hotel would hold our bags while we toured the city. She came through on the promise of a room with a better view. So happy with the room that over looked Kings Chapel and Old City Hall. The hotel is right in the middle of everything, easy walking distance to anything. Beds were comfortable. Room was a little small but wont stop me from staying again. No free WiFi.
This hotel for the amount I paid was really above my expectations in terms of service. Location is very central to the historic district, entertainment, food shopping. The hotel itself has a rich history and great to wonder through it. Would stay here again.
Location was close to most points of interest in downtown/waterfront Boston. Large lobby and helpful staff. Clean. Would rather have traded nice large entrance and lobby area for a better room size and traded the standard (double) bed for a queen size. Price for what we received was a little on the expensive side. Hotel claims to be 4 star but it doesn't quite make that level. WiFi should have been included as is becoming standard at hotels of this level
Extremely dirty. Unclean pillows and mattress. Not washed bathrooms.
The TV and shower are excellent as is the location of the hotel. Knowing how expensive downtown Boston hotels are, I appreciate being able to stay in the heart of the city at such a low cost. Sadly, the staff isn't very friendly. They always act like they are doing you a favor if asked a question or reporting the elevator malfunctioning!!!!
Don't leave your car in valet for over the 24 hour period or you will be charged $27 for 1 1/2 hours over... Still don't understand the Math there!
Thin walls; heard neighbors
Bathroom was pretty small.
- Simple check in and check out procedure. - Some complimentary amenities in the morning (free coffee and fruit) - Good location for business - Not the newest facility - could stand an upgrade for the carpeting, floors and bathroom - Communal iron and other in-room amenities takes some getting used to - Not recommended for families traveling with children as there's nothing for them to do on-site.
The bed was too firm. Had a hard wire around the edge of the mattress. No Iron, No Microwave, No Fridge. The shower was tiny.. really small. Not comfortable at all.
Rooms were clean, Staff pleasant. Nice gym. Love the security card elevator feature. Should be in all hotels. Elephant castle is always pleasant. I didn't like that my room didn't have an ironing board & safe. In my opinion those two should be a no brainier & standard.
The hotel looked nicer online to be honest. The staff were pretty great. House keeping was really good with fixing the room after i called about the bed being dirty. They left a nice note and some snacks/drinks as well. The TV was really nice. Our room was not very well kept. It was dusty, the bed hadn't been changed I believe, the sheets and pillow case was dirty and hairy, and the bathroom smelled like ciggaretes and was kind of dirty. the room was better than a motel so it wasn't the worst, just a little too pricey for the kind of quality you end up getting.
Receptionist clerks responsive to questions and pleasing traveler. The bathroom shower was excellent. The heating unit in the room was noisy. The breakfast was skimpy; commercial granola bars, oranges, bananas, coffee from machine (all impersonal).
Gym - small
Great location, rooms were clean, a lot of ports/outlets Room is kind of small, a bit pricey for the size of the room
Friendly staff; accommodated a late check out request, but with a fee to be paid. Not an issue. Promised champagne and strawberries for special occasion (but never arrived). Great location. Bellmen were extremely helpful! Front desk staff seemed friendly, but read issues we had. Had there not been any of the issues, this would've been a great stay, I just don't know why there were so many missteps. It was a good stay, if you look at room size, bed comfort, bathroom size and comfort (just don't expect privacy; everyone will know your business in there!), friendliness, location. This should be a phenomenal stay. It has all the makings for it. It must've been a full moon or something that weekend. Was promised champagne and strawberries the first evening, but it didn't come. The next day, the room wasn't cleaned when we arrived back at 11pm, so called to have at least the bed made and fresh towels (they offered a discount on an additional night, which was accepted, though didn't go smoothly at final check out for some reason); also mentioned the missing champagne and strawberries, was told they'd be there the next night, but again no champagne or strawberries when we returned. Ever. Hallway was meeting central at 3am for drunken shenanigans by other guests. Finally, on the fourth day, after returning to the hotel after a long day, the wireless entry failed, so we had to wait to be let into the room. To the front desk's credit, they were going to upgrade us for free on the last night for the inconvenience, but one of us needed to get back into the room because they were flying out in two hours, so that wouldn't work. Was promised an email accounting, even gave email address and was promised in 5-10min; it's now over twelve hours later, and still no receipt in my inbox or spam/junk folder.
Location is great in the center of everything walking distance anywhere to Boston. That breakfast is not included with the price tag of the room breakfast should be complementary. Parking under the hotel should be priced accordingly and have a special pricing for hotel residents.
Wonderful location, comfortable and clean room, friendly staff. What else can I ask for a 3 day visit to the city. Can't think of anything.
Nice and clean. Annoying to pay for parking. Made me really angry, the hotel should have free parking for its guests. $40-55 a night is just ridiculous.
Close to everything but quiet to recharge Parking, not included
Staff was very helpful and kind. After taking a red eye they were able to accommodate us on an early check in. Hotel and rooms were clean. Beds were comfy too. AND it's close to everything/walking distance.
The location was superb. The hotel is within walking distance of most attractions, shops, and metro. Chinatown is only one block away, with many delicious food choices. The pool could be cleaner. They should provide locks for the lockers.
The location was great with close proximity to public transportation and that made it easy for us to get around the city. Front desk was able to get us a room with double beds on a busy holiday weekend. 1) Slow elevator to get to lobby 2) Steep valet parking fees 3) Room service did not clean the room on our first day. I am not sure whether it was because of busy holiday weekend.
Had online check in everything was very clean beds comfortable great staff
everything worked good location
Comfy beds and clean room located easy walks from Boston Common Faneuil Hall and so much of the tourist stops we wanted to see. Salvatore's was a decent restaurant right across the street. Snooty staff at front desk. Restaurant staff courteous. Not a hotel with a family vibe. It seems more suited for business and conference attendees
Room was immaculate and newly renovated. Front desk staff was extremely helpful and accommodating for my late check in. I am from the area and stayed overnight to avoid public transit issues on the morning of an important meeting. I would definitely stay there again!
The Godfrey is very Modern, ideally located and the staff is super friendly. ( Except for the manager on duty when I checked in.) Booked a two bedroom with a third party site,didn't have that option so I called up the hotel to see if there was an option. Was told to just mark in underspecial request and they would have it for me. When I checked in was given a small King size room and says that's what we booked. Told the manager who talked to us what happened and she says we never made the request. I pulled up the reservation on myphone and showed her the request, then she says its first come first serve basis. Only room left for the night was a $80 upgrade was a four class upgrade to a suite which was much bigger and had two TVs, so I took it, had no other option. Walked into the room and if that was a four class upgrade I would hate to see a regular room. Room was very small, only one TV. Don't get me wrong, hotel was very nice. Big screen TV,nice showers and towels, but felt very very very cheated. Along with the $52 for parking it was like spending $600 a night for a small room.......Really??
Beautiful room with an awesome mattress! Fancy hotel right in the heart of downtown. Definitely recommend.
The location First room far to loud (trucks unloading / loading 5 am); second room not so loud, but still noisy. Strange inventory: No hooks to hang coats etc. Only one shelf for shirts in the wardrobe, no other furniture witgh drawers (underware etc.) half of the wardrobe full of ironong board. No hooks to hang bathrobe and bigger towels in the bathroom. small selection at breakfast, every day the same. Loud music allready at breakfast. No bowls for yoghurt and esreal to mix, except small plastic cups. All breakfast cups, spoons etc. plastic (lots of vaste) hardly any tables to eat breakfast (sofas. lounge chairs etc.) Over all feeling like a grown up youth hostel
Location, Location, Location 2 min from Boston Common, in the center of the theater district Offsite Valet Parking was $52 per day, raising the effective room rate cost by that amount. Bed was too soft to be comfortable for my taste. No onsite restaurant
Great location, central to most attractions. Very polite and helpful staff Ice machine was broken, but these things happen.
Staff was awesome and the place is all brand new and beautiful A little expensive
Location was outstanding. The interior of the hotel was impeccable - obviously new. The bed was probably the most luxurious of any hotel bed I have slept in. Bose Bluetooth speaker provided ambiance to the room. Continental breakfast was a pleasant surprise. Room was a fairly small. Dresser in the hall made for tight passage between the bedroom and the bathroom.
Convenient, clean, very nice, sleek, efficient Tight rooms for two travelers with large bags
Easy check in, impressive room, comfortable and clean. We left our bags after checking out and went out to enjoy the day, came back and retrieved them from the friendly staff later.
Tasteful and modern décor, beautiful details, friendly staff, comfortable beds, location, complimentary bottles of water TV program transmission quality was spotty. Glass shower screen led to wet bathroom floor and soaking bath mats after every shower. Ice machine hard to locate and not on every floor.
Chic hotel with very comfortable rooms and excellent customer service. It's hard to think of anything we didn't like
Great ,location, layout, quality, and service. Our second stay here and we remain fans of this newer downtown hotel. Comfortable beds, quality fixture, terrific, huge Tv, fast wifi. Haven't tried the food. The bar was nice. Jeez, the standard rooms are tiny with hard to access closet and no side table on one side of the bed. We were offered a larger room for another $40 and should have taken it!
Location Thought it was too expensive.
Rooms are classic ritz-carlton comfort and luxury. They forgot to make a dinner reservation I requested at booking and never did anything about it.
the health club is fantastic a reason to come back, the eating / bar facilities are ok it does not feel very cozy
The hotel was beautiful and staff was very professional and courteous and willing to help.
Beds, personal treatment of the staff No
they did not have taxis waiting outside and couldnot call one. They had to whistle for one passing by. As they are on a side street not that many pass buy. Also the area is not as nice as others in the city
Loved everything about staying at the Four Seasons Boston. The service was impeccable and they really made us feel "at home." My kids especially loved the welcome wagon and cookies and milk :) The hotel was clean, warm and inviting and I would absolutely stay there again. Highly recommend!
Phenomenally friendly staff, offered us free wine and Cokes and party bag for the kids. Unnecessarily nice!
Appreciated the glass of wine at check-in and the staff were polite. "Upgraded" room was very tiny and the bathroom shower had mildew and stains. The bed was comfortable until I woke up with a bite mark on my leg and wrist. This place is overpriced and feels like it hasn't been maintained like other hotels. Won't stay here again.
Very nice location and the staff were tremendous. The room was well decorated and clean. The service was outstanding.
Great value for money. Good restaurant -- functional for working and meeting. Decor and some amenities starting to get a little dated. Humidifier supplied did not really work. Internet in rooms slow.
Where to begin from the location to the staff to the rooms. Really could not ask for more!
Great location. Wish the valet parking was complimentary
Loved the attention to detail liked comped champagne and strawberries for our anniversary, our wedding pic in the room and the free parking we got by using the secret code, currently 'cannonball'. We missed the 5-6 free cocktail hour but were given 2 glasses of wine on check in. Make sure you know the secret code and join their rewards program for perks. Nothing!
Comfortable bed. Beautiful furnishings. Excellent service.
Hotel was very clean, staff was very helpful and friendly, great central location! Nothing
The location of the hotel couldn't be more perfect. Upon arrival the staff was very inviting and accommodating. I was fortunate enough to get a corner room with spectacular views. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable, and they're dog friendly! If your looking for a great place to stay within walking distance of Fanueil Hall, Nine Zero is the place to stay!
Step out front door and you are on the freedom trail and ready to go Location
I was thouroughly impressed with the service from the moment Valet opened our car doors till the moment Valet closed our doors at time of departure. I frequent 5 star hotels and must say this hotel, concierge and quality of service was unsurpassable. Perfect boutique hotel experience!
Friendly, considerate service, hotel cars to take you around Boston and good food from room service, also dog friendly. They charged us more than our original quote
We liked the shower, the roof deck, but most of all we liked the design of the hotel/room.
The location is perfect for a downtown stay and, while small, the rooms are nicely designed. Poor air conditioning. No bath in the room.
The staff was quite helpful and courteous, the room perfect and the food at the restaurant remarkable. The view from the rooftop is also outstanding.
Fifteen Beacon was beautiful, staff was so helpful and servicing that we felt truly carefree on our vacation to Boston. The rooms were excellently appointed, fashionably contemporary and spacious. We loved the fireplace, the four post bed and the privacy, it was the perfect intimate setting amid the busy Boston city life.
The staff is so engaging and professional but not stuffy or uptight. The food at Moo (hotel restaurant) is unbeatable. You just can't beat the hotel vibe if you like personal service. I prefer more light than dark walls.
The studio room was ok and nicely furnished It was incredibly noisy, street traffic, garbage trucks, whining and motors running kept you awake from 2.30-5.30am every morning. I am afraid teh hotel was unworkable as a business hotel, and only possible as a holiday hotel if you are a heavy sleeper or a hard drinker so that you could surivive teh noise. I'll never stay again nor would I recommend it. Sorry. Having booked 2 rooms and paid so much a night I was utterly disappointed. Complaining next morning to the front desk about the noise, the receptionist was talking to me and then said "hold on" picked up the phone and started arranging some other booking with the caller. Don't Americans do basic manners anymore? Please note this is not a complaint, it was rude, noisy and expensive.
location, comfort, quiet overnight parking does not have to be this expensive
I found the overall experience of staying in the W very relaxing and comfortable.
Clean, comfortable and in a great location Lobby extremely loud
highly service-oriented staff, modern and luxurious styled rooms, rather 5 than 4 stars for the rooms - you feel comfortable in this hotel bathroom: open wall to the room, no bath tube in the single-bed rooms
The hotel was very luxurious and modern. Room was extremely clean. Overall great experiance. I would recommend this hotel too others. The rooms are a bit pricey.
The w never disappoints. I had quite a pleasant and extraordinary stay. No.
Brand new hotel Staff are not up to the W standard
The front staff and manager were extremely accomodating after having a 2 hour tiff with the booking company I used (Get a Room, you were terrible). The room was clean and contemporary which me and my guests enjoyed. For the price, it was reasonable due to the location right next to the commons and for a saturday night in Boston. Wifi was free and they had speakers to hook up an iPad to play music. Parking was $50 for valet. ~$40 in the surrounding parking lots for overnight.
Wonderful building and facilities. Clean, comfortable. Great location. I have stayed at several Starwood Hotels and usually the W staff is a little bit more hospitable and welcoming. This particular staff was not very welcoming and when I had questions I was met with some interesting attitudes. All in all, great hotel - just think like every hotel somethings can be improved.
