Amazing hotel in the best location

We had a great and relaxing family stay at the mandarin Boston! The hotel is top notch. Staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating.

Fantastic hotel, exceptional service.

Posted Nov 16, 2014
Pros: Top notch comfort and service.
Cons: Room doors close hard, can be heard, may bother some people; Like all hotels, lacking in high volume/pressure shower due to "green" standards.
Location: Green line subway is two blocks away with access throughout the city. Entire area is a vast shopping mecca.
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.

Epic Experience

Posted Sep 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
It was the one of my best hotel experience. The hotel's facility was excellent and employees are fantastic. All my family members were very very satisfied. You should try the spa located at 4th floor. It was amazing experience with Mandarin Oriental Boston. Thank you

Not worth it

Posted Aug 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
Waited forever for a bellman; ended up carrying my own bags. Shower configuration tight making it impossible for a woman to shave her legs comfortably. Noisy despite 6th floor location.

Great Back Bay Location

Posted Jun 19, 2014
Cons: The coffee machine in the room was complicated and the hotel coffee wasn't that good.
Location: Close to Newbury St. and Fenway Park
The hotel is a 5-star experience with a 5-star location. It is connected to a huge high end mall with many shops and restaurants. This would be a big advantage in winter, especially.

just one thing wrong

Posted Jun 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel would get the top rating in all categories - clean, well decorated, efficient staff (mostly) except for one thing. Do they really need to tack on a daily or hourly charge for Wifi on top of their room charge? They are already among the most expensive hotels in Boston - so why the niggling extra - when every Motel 6 and Comfort Inn in the country offers it for free. Seems foolish to me. Otherwise, I would not hesitate to recommend this place.

さすが、世界のマンダリン

Posted Jun 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
ボストンでは毎回違うホテルを宿泊し比較している。他のホテルから早朝に移ったにも関わらず、9:00amにはお部屋を用意してくれた。初めてアメニティがShanghai Tangのホテルに出会った。お昼からはSPAに篭りジェットバス、サウナ、スウェディッシュマッサージでリラックス、この間もスタッフの心配りがtoo muchになり過ぎない範囲で感じられ流石だと思わせた。唯一つ、ルームサービスで頼んだ朝食の中華粥がリゾット状態だったのにはガッカリしたが、全ての面で抜きん出て良かった。
