Best location for a quick visit to Boston

Posted Apr 11, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Some corridor noise from housekeeping and plumbing noise but it is an old builiding
Location: Very close to Newberry Street, Boston Common, great resturants in Beacon Hill, and the T. A long walk to the MFA but doable if you like city walks.
The Taj is a traditional hotel in a great location in Boston. It over looks Boston Common and some of the rooms have a spectacular view. It is located at the end of one of the greatest shopping streets in North America in my view, but it is also convenient to the T line if you need to travel further afield. Vehicle access is great and the staff are very helpful in getting you a cab as needed. The building has been extensively renovated but some of the traditional features, like opening windows and large closets, have been maintained that in my view add to the experience. I cannot comment on the food or other facilities as I ate off site and was only at the hotel overnight. It is a very comfortable place to stay.

It was our second visit to the hotel. Location of the hotel is really good for sightseeing at Downtown/Cambridge. And also very comfortable for the stay.

Great City hotel!

The Taj Boston is great if you're looking for helpful, kind and professional staff. The hotel probably has the best location in Boston, as it is right next to a beautiful park and it's right in the centre of Boston. The Taj is also very close to a shopping district, and lots of historical buildings to fit your interests. In short, I highly recommend this wonderful and charming city hotel.

The perfect location in Boston!

Posted Mar 23, 2015
We were greeted with a warm welcome and quickly spirited to our lovely room overlooking Newberry Street-one of the top shopping streets in the world! The room was immaculate and well supplied. It was quiet and restful. Staff was unflaggingly cheerful and helpful. Room service prompt and courteous. Food was delicious, well prepared in both the Bar and the always elegant cafe(this area could benefit from a little refurbishing, but still nice.) Close to everything, easy access to transportation of all kinds. Love it!

Everything was top notch. Location is excellent

The hotel itself is upscale with service to match. All the employees greet you everywhere you go. One standout is elevator always waiting at lobby. 1 block from train small block. Across the street from huge park. Full service, everything. We would love to stay again next time in Boston.
