"Renovated hotel with quick transportation access"
This is a beautiful hotel which has been recently renovated. We rented one of the Commonwealth suites and found it to be spacious, elegant and quiet even though our room faced Commonwealth. Everyone was responsive to our requests. The food at the Eastern Standard is divine.
If you are not renting a car, there is easy access to the bus, subway and taxis. I would highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel was great, as expected of the Four Seasons brand. The staff we dealt with were very professional and friendly. The bar was comfortable and service prompt. I really couldn't fault anything about our stay.
It's a pleasant walk to nearby shopping areas, restaurants and theaters.

Once you stay at a Mandarin Oriental, you'll find it hard to go back. Rooms and bathrooms are excellent. Housekeeping service twice a day. In the evening they prepare the bed for sleeping, put down a bath mat on the carpet and slippers. Set the room lights down; empty the trash cans; fill the stainless steel ice bucket; refold the leading edge of the toilet paper into a convenient triangle (really!); replace the towels, glasses, turn on the TV, etc. Lots of electronic controls. Two phones are touch screens with access to dining, housekeeping, front desk. Do not disturb is a light you turn on by the door. Room lights are all something like a Lutron system, accessible from both sides of the bed and the entry. The bathroom lights are also accessible from the bed, but can be set separately dimmed down for a night light. Glass shower, massive tub capable of two average-sized people. Plenty of business supplies, paper, pen, scissors, highlighter, ethernet cable. Room service and food are exceptional. The guy even rotated the TV to face where he setup breakfast. Also a very secure hotel. You cannot even get to floors above the lobby without using your room key card. The hotel restaurant was also first-rate. One of my favorites is Prudential Center self-parking is very near. I find valet parking to be a chore if you plan to use a car a lot. From the 2nd level, exit to the indoor mall, walk toward Lord+Taylor, take the elevator to the garage.

Lovely hotel with exceptionally helpful staff (though American customer service is generally excellent anyway). You can have breakfast in your room but there isn't a specific dining area for breakfast. Two nice restaurants within the hotel and that lovely Lindt shop on the corner! You're in an expensive part of town but there are ample reasonably priced restaurants within easy walking distance and the red line T stop is a two minute walk. We stayed twice within one holiday breaking in the middle to go to New York. When we checked back in for the second part of our stay at the Lenox there was homemade cookies and milk for us in our room as a welcome back. Lovely gesture. The Flour Bakery is nearby and excellent for breakfast. Overall a great hotel.
