GREAT LOCATIONPosted Sep 13, 2014
Pros: Great staff. Phenomenal location.
Cons: It would be nice if they could cure Boston's parking.
Location: wlaking range for the Commons, Garden and shopping/dining.
I needed a short stay in the Beacon Hill area. This B&B has a phenomenal location in the first block of Commonwealth. It is a historic building that is well kept up with friently welcoming staff. Parking is the same as anywhere in this location, difficult but manageable. For a single accomodation there is a shared bathroom which was no problem.

They did not refund my stay, even though my grandmother passed and that was the reason for me being unable to attend.

UniquePosted Jul 28, 2014
The college club did not feel like a hotel. It's more like you are staying in you're rich relatives brownstone's guest room. The furnishings and decor brought you back in time. The place was clean, well maintained, and the staff was very friendly. The price was very fair for the room and location. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone spending a weekend or a few days midweek in Boston. It might not be for someone who is staying longer. There are no refrigerators or microwaves or any other modern conveniences in the rooms. There is a nice expanded continental breakfast in the lobby every morning.

Excellent hotelPosted Jul 12, 2014

Worst experience ever!Posted Jun 24, 2014
The hotel was ok in my opinion- it has a vintage feel to it, room was spacious, however the floor is super creaky and wall is super thin- i could not sleep because other people outside walking upstairs on the creaky floor and talking. What I was disappointed and annoyed the most was the attitude of the hotel's staff. When I first came check-in, the lady at the front desk did not seem friendly at all. And when she saw that I had a lot of luggage with me, she was like "Do you have to bring all your luggage to your room? The room is really small". I was so annoyed by that, what did she mean, did she want me to throw my stuffs away?? It turned out later that the room was really big and after that comment of her, I nearly walked out of the hotel. First time being treated like that at a hotel- with such an unfriendly attitude!

A gem in the middle of BostonPosted Jun 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
I've stayed here before - it's a small, well run hotel in the most convenient part of town. Highly recommended.

Old World comfort but no TVPosted Jun 9, 2014 on Hotels.com
The service was less than stellar. There are two office attendants available during the day time, but none at night after regular hours. At one point, problems with the wireless service could not be resolved and one attendant insisted it was a problem with our devices, rather that their service. Next day, when everything was magically working fine, it was obviously NOT our devices. The other attendant was rude and berated me for having a conversation at normal speaking volume in the lobby (outside the office) at 10:30 am because she couldn't focus on her work which involved "numbers". Honestly, she could have just closed the door if she was so distracted. There were NO TV's. This was not obvious when I booked this room. If you like to relax by reading a book this is the place. If you'd like a TV and reliable wireless service, go somewhere else.

Within walking distancePosted Jun 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
First off, this is not a typical hotel. It's a B&B style in a building built in the 1800s. There are no TVs in the rooms, the floors creak, and the elevator is slow. It's drafty and there is a shared bathroom between 4 rooms. If you aren't adventurous or prefer the standard hotel style, don't stay here. However, if you want a unique experience in a beautiful old building, read on. I had a 4-night stay scheduled and, due to issues with transportation, I missed a night. The hotel staff was more than accommodating about it, which made my 4 hour delay a little more bearable. The location cannot be beat! When you're looking at a map, it's hard to judge walking distance but The College Club is literally just half a block from the Public Gardens / Boston Commons, around the corner from high-end shopping and the Arlington T station, 1.5 blocks from a Starbucks, and across the park from the start of the Freedom Trail, several restaurants, and the movie theater.
