... at a little back street restaurant called 75 Chesnut very cute, we had to wait about 20 mins to get a table but it was worth it the food and ambiance was very nice. Home to bed.
In the morning after a wander through the common we purchased tickets to do the freedom trail walk through the streets of old Boston. While we were waiting these enormous explosions started, had a momentary panic that it was a terrorist attack but it ...
... take for granted but are pretty clever. Stuff like post it notes, ball point pens, bubble wrap and paper clips. Next I walked up to Harvard, and chilled out on it's common. Here, infront of the statue of Mr Harvard I polished off a Jack Reacher novel. I've read my last two back to back over about four days. Easy reading and they are getting better. Although it can sometimes be quite obvious who the bad guy is and there is a definite theme that someone he thinks ...

Rafting was pretty fun but tbh I expected the rapids to be mores dangerous, I wanted to feel a bit less safe (guys, I know I’m *************’t make jokes about me please) but it was still a great day. After rafting we separated again into smaller groups and stayed the night at a couple of the American’s houses / parted ways with those who weren’t continuing on with us, which pretty much brings me to where I am ...

We head over to Copley Place and debate finding the shops there, but opted to head over to Fenway Park to the Red Sox store to get caps and t-shirts before the game on Friday evening. A couple of stops along the green line on the T (Boston's underground network) to Kenmore later and we followed the signs out of the station for Fenway ...
... end of house with rain! It poured and the wind howled and the streets filled with rain! All the streets in the park were covered up to and onto the sidewalks! Prob 3+ inches in the centers of the streets. I was ready to go out for dinner when this started and about an hour later I was able to leave—but my wipers would not come on???? The rear one operated but doesn’t help much in driving. Now need to figure that out! Dinner at Greeks-Victor was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro Boston
My wife and I stayed for one night. The suite was the only room available and we took that. The room was very large, but the walls of the room had clearly seen wear, and the throw pillows on the bed were very stained. Our guess was the suite, with the roll-out couch included, attracts more families. Hopefully the other rooms were not as beat up.
I stayed in Boston with my company and got a recommendation for this hotel from a friend.
I am extremely disappointed with the management of this hotel. Though I have not stayed here, I think readers deserve to know how poorly I was treated after I booked my parents at this hotel.
We spent several days at the Beacon Hill and had a mixed experience.
Stayed here in summer of 2004 -- very hot outside but had the A/C on high in the room. Boston is one of those cities that if you're there in the summer you're not spending much time in the room anyway. I definitely appreciated how true the hotel was to the neighborhood --- "quaint elegance" --- it was right on Charles Street in the middle of everything and I felt like I was staying in a friend's home in Beacon Hill.
If Location Is Everything, This Hotel Has Everything
The convenient and scenic location led me to choose this hotel for a special visit to my old home-town. Nothing we found once we arrived was worth a second glance- not the food, not the room, not the service. If we had intended to spend any time in our hotel we would have been very disappointed.
Small and comfortable hotel with smallish but pleasant and clean rooms and bathrooms. Perhaps not appropriate for a long stay as limited closet and clothing storage. No lobby although there is a small sitting area. The reception doubles as the restaurant's desk. The Bistro restaurant offers good food but they tend to serve hot food on cold plates so clarify when you order that the plates have to be warmed in advance, else your food will arrive at best lukewarm. The location on Charles Street is wonderful. Very charming neighborhood and within easy walking distance of everything a tourist could want including the Common and Public Garden, Freedom Trail, shops (Boylston Street etc), even business district, and the subway. Very nice people! Peter, who seems to be the head receptionist, speaks a number of languages and has much to say about Boston and places to eat.
It made our trip
We found this little gem walking down Charles Street on an earlier trip to Boston. We had a superb dinner there and took a tour of the hotel. Three visits later, one for business and two with my wife, we have made this our home away from home. The rooms are clean and precious. The views are great. It is absolutely the best location in Boston. (We have been travelling to Boston ever since we lived there in the 80's.)Best of all is the staff. From the breakfast waitresses to the managers, we just love them. Last trip, they arranged for Yankees tickets in advance of our arrival - not bad at all.Thank you Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro.
Loved the Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro
The Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro is a superb small hotel in a great location. Reminds me of London. The staff was fantastic -- helpful with directions and reservations. Great selection of teas. Our room was splendid. Perfect point of departure for visiting Boston for the first time. We'll be going back for a second visit in the Spring.
Great hotel, great location
The rooms here are not palatial, but they're very comfortable. The flat-screen tvs are a nice touch. Also, the hotel's restaurant is fabulous-- breakfast is terrific! And you can't beat being on Charles Street.
