I was so hoping this upper respiratory issue would resolve itself before I had to get on a plane but alas it didn't therefore as I type this note, my head is still splitting and totally congested...and of course I'm experiencing everything that goes along with that, i.e., gut busting coughing, sneezing and other things I won't mention, lol. Anyhow ...
I can't believe I'm actually sitting here writing my last entry...nine months have passed in no time at all! Part of me feels like I should be writing about how I've reflected on this journey and it's been wonderful but now I'm ready to go home and get on with life....but that would be a huge, huge lie! I am overcome with sadness that I only have one week left after five years of travel, how is this possible? One week! I kind of want to scream and cry ...

We stayed in Cambridge, Boston with Josh who is originally Chinese but lived in the US for years.

Historical Traveler Reviews Gryphon House Boston
Great location without a car. Quiet clean and very urban Fun time
We'll be back.
We spent one night at the Gryphon House in the Garden Room. It is the smallest room, but was still more than enough for us. The location was perfect. We had tickets to the Red Sox and Fenway was a 3 minute walk. Later that night we walked to Newbury Street- a 5 minute walk. Can't beat the location and off street parking.
However, at least in our room, the bed and/or mattress squeaked incessantly all night and was not very comfortable. Breakfast was ok. I prefer a little more substance, but it was adequate.
We will definitely stay there again-just hope they replace the mattress.
Quiet, convenient, relaxing luxury
Though it has been a while since I stayed in the beautiful Tuscany Suite at the Gryphon House, my partner and I remember our stay there very well to this day-- The people who work there were so pleasant and professional, they really give a traveller a great orientation to a city that can be confusing to get around. Also, the common space downstairs (a huge Victorian-inspired living room and entryway) is BEAUTIFUL. It's the kind of place where you could have a wedding or a pajama party-- the attitude of the staff is so comfortable. Also, the rates are no more than the Marriott or the Hilton. It's worth doing something a little different!
My wife and I stayed at the Gryphon House based on the excellent reviews it received on this web-site. The excellent reviews are well-deserved. We loved our stay at the Gryphon House and plan on returning. The owners and staff were all friendly and accomodating. They were very knowledgeable about the city and helped us learn how to get around Boston. The location makes for easy access around the city and the off-street parking is very convenient.
Every positive thing said by the previous 5 reviewers can be trusted. We visited over Thanksgiving 2004 (as college parents). The tasteful, well decorated rooms and the amount of space in each room was a peaceful oasis.
Do yourselves a favour- forget the boring, faceless, soulless city centre hotels where the staff don't really care and book in at Gryphon House. All 8 rooms (we saw them all) were wonderfully decorated, great sizes and unique. Have a relaxing bath, dry off with the plump white towels and robes (not the threadbare things you normally get) , then sit in front of the controllable gas fire with a glass of Rioja - bliss!!
Staff will go out of their way to help and its only a few hunded yards from the T, which gives easy access to almost anywhere.
We won't want to stay anywhere else next time we visit Boston
We (family of 4) stayed four nights in August 2004. This was our favorite accommodation during a 3-week trip. The building and decor were elegant, but not overdone. The staff was friendly, professional, and helpful; they would answer all questions in depth (e.g. driving directions, the nearest ice cream, overview of Boston U.), and once left us some blueberry bread for a snack. The location was excellent - 1 block from subway, 4 blocks from Newbury St., surrounded by beautiful historic architecture. The room (Sanctuary, in the basement) was extremely well maintained and, despite a warning that it would be cramped, was plenty roomy. The kitchen in the room helped defray vacation costs. Little extras, like the internet access in the parlor, desk copy of Zagat's, and video library, rounded out the services. One small suggestion would be to provide more than two tables for continental breakfast. We will stay here the next time we come to Boston.
I also did a lot of research before my visit to New England. Forget the hotels...this is the place. The beautiful red stone townhouse furnished with antiques was a real treat. We stayed (with our 3 kids) in the North Tower which is like a little self contained apartment with sofa bed and a roll away. (You can see short films of the rooms on their website) It was beautiful..really clean and a pleasure to wake up in. The staff were extremely nice and very helpful. There is a subway station not far away which will take you anywhere in the city, although you can walk to the centre too. You also get a nice continental breakfast which you eat in the lounge area while listening to classical music....very civilised! I wouldn't even think about staying anywhere else if I was going back to Boston.
Stayed for two great nights, wish it could have been more.
We travelled to Boston recently for a short vacation, and stayed at the Gryphon House. It is truly a great place to stay! The location is perfect, very central and just across the street from the Charles River. The staff is friendly, and your every need is met. We wish it could have been a longer stay. We will definately be back!
A Week End
I did my research, talked to my friends and thought I had found the perfect place. Isn't it sweet when things go as planed. The Gryphon House could not of been better. It is extermly clean, not overly done, as in not having so much stuff around we were afraid to touch anything, and a great staff. And by the way we walked over to watch the Red Sox while everybody else was hunting for a parking spot.
