Boston in 3 days

We have once again walked our legs off seeing another beautiful historical city. The Freedom Trail and detours took us about 10 kilometres with many stops along the way and a climb up the monument on Bunker Hill. Stopped at Cheers for a well-earned drink. The following day we gave ourselves a rest by going on a tour to Cape Cod which is gorgeous …

Boston Treatment Begins

... plan and we are prepared. I'm psyched to get started. After Chemo, I'll get my haircut on Wednesday, short. Then I’ll have about 3 weeks before you see pictures in cool head wraps. Have you ever wondered why chemo patients often lose their hair? It's because the chemo targets the fastest growing cells in our bodies for the "kill." Cancer cells grow too fast. "They don't die enough." Our hair is made up of our fastest growing "normal" ...

Let's go Red Sox!

... the locals was palpable! Whilst the result did not go their way in the first game, the Red Sox were triumphant in game 2 and the masses were celebrating! During the seventh inning stretch - a time where people literally stand up and have a stretch; this was done to the melodic tones of Neil Diamond's 'Sweet Caroline' - and all sang along! A truly magical and fantastic ...

... destressed. Probably because the lobster was stil fully intact before I started nawing into it like a savage beast.

Tuesday I went to Havard University which was suprisingly avarage. It really is just another college no different to what we have back home, though its just renowned for having famous and iconic people graduate from there. I had a fair bit of spare time on my hands so i decided to kick back and relax by seeing a movie and eating some of ...

Freedom Trail and Fin Whales

A travel blog entry by healsby

... we were heading out into the Massachusetts Bay to an area called Geoffrey's Ledge then on to Gloucester, 35 miles North East of Boston, and that we were likely to see both Humpbacks and Fin whales. Humpback whales are apparently mid-sized (only 34-50ft!) and weigh 30-40 tonnes and she said that there have been around 2500 different humpbacks seen in the area since 1970. The fin whales are, the guide said, the second largest in the world, after the blue whale; ...

    Great location, excellent room. Wifi was good. Breakfast is coffee/juice, untoasted bagels and fruit...but food if you're desperate. Great place to stay in Boston.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Charlesmark Hotel Boston

    Not at all what I was told

    from

    I arrived there with my daughter, thinking we were pampering ourselves. First problem was to find A parking spot to unload our bags, there was NO valet parking or anyone on site to help. After going around the block 4 times we stopped at the front door where the sign reads "valet parking" put the bags in the room and in less than 8 minutes got an $55.00 ticket for parking at the door. Front rooms are very noisy, they are facing a very busy avenue, so lots of busses and trucks,and NO double pane windows, the other room I stayed was dark and depressing, hard to know if it was day or night. Elevator doors are very close to the rooms and in need of some oil to make them run softer. The room I was told by the owner had about $1.000.00 in bedding, my assumption was down conforter, great linnen, great pillows.....well, I was wrong. The sheets were not soft (50/50 mixed) and not good quality, there was a waffle cotton blanket on the bed, and the pillows were so thin, that I need it at least two or three to be comfortable. The closet was small and short, so forget about putting a short dress in it, so anything long was out of the question. Adding to that there was no drawers. The bathroom was SMALL and forget about taking a bath, only a shower, off course no bathrobes, Qtips, cotton balls, lotion, shower cap.

    Fantastic stay for our 25th Anniversary!

    from

    My wife and I just stayed at the Charlesmark on Sept. 7th-9th, and again on the 12th, having decided to stay there based on the great reviews we read here. Well, we were not disappointed. Sure the room was a little smaller than some other hotels, but so what? We weren't holding any parties, and it was plenty big for the two of us and our luggage. We were given an (unasked for) upgrade to one of the rooms at the front of the building, which are larger than the "standard" ones. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in, the pillows were great; the bathroom, the towels, the sound system, etc: all excellent! The whole room was very contemporary and well-designed.

    A shopper's heaven

    from

    If you are in Boston to shop till you drop, this is the place to stay. So close to Copley Place, the Prudential Centre and Newbury St that you can just pop back to your room to deposit your bags when they get heavy and then get straight back out there again.

    Loved This Hotel!

    from

    I just stayed at this hotel for one night. I did a ton of research through tripadvisor and other websites. I had a great time. This hotel is centrally located and walking distance from Back Bay station (T stop). The rooms are more cozy than small. I paid 189+tax for a deluxe room. That included a TV, DVD player and sofa bed. If you have a lot of luggage or would like a roomier cozy room, then go for the deluxe. The standard room was for 159. The bathroom was really nice and the shower was just perfect. I had an excellent stay. Next time I visit, I will stay here!

    Cheers for the Charlesmark

    from

    My daughter and I stayed at the Charlesmark the first week in August, 2004. The location is outstanding, as is the service and the facility. Our room was small, but well appointed with furnishings that were both attractive and practical. The price was reasonable, given the location, and they also provide a continental breakfast. What's not to like!

    Great Service And Charming Rooms

    from

    Excellent location, great service, charming rooms. My wife and I spent two nights at this wonderful hotel in the middle of everything, across the street of Copley Station. we actually used the T to go everywhere, you could go from the Airport to the hotel using the T without any problem, the hotel is one block away from Newbury Street where you can go shop, eat in nice restaurants and have a great time, you could also use a nice gym across the street with the special deal that the hotel owner has with a very nice downtown gym.

    Rooms are high tech state of the art, surround system everywhere (even in the bathroom), wireless internet.

    We highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to visit Boston (Great city!!!). We will be back with more friends.

    Outstanding Personal Service

    from

    Recently my husband and I (with our 1 year old )arrived at the Charlesmark Hotel. The owner / operator ( Mark Hagopian ) greeted at us at the car and carried our bags to our room. During that time he asked if we needed any recommendations for things to do during our stay. Make a long story short he set us up with a trolly tour ( fabulous) , restauraunt reservations ( Massaminos in the North end ( Great food and cheap!) and had Red Sox tickets delivered to the hotel for us that night. To top it off he hand delivered and assembeled a crib for us in our beautiful modern room which was filled with extras you don't usually find at bigger hotels : CD stereo with direct music and suround sound. Even speakers in the bathroom. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for great service , outstanding location and cool modern rooms.

    Nice place to stay

    from

    My husband and I went to Boston so that I could do research for my thesis. We did not have enough time to see the whole city, but the location of Charlesmark allowed us to see more than we might have staying anywhere else.

    Charm and Convenience

    from

    I come up to Boston once month on business. I have grown tired of the big chain sameness. I discovered Charlesmark on the recommendation of a friend. It is a great spot, just what the business traveler needs. Good rooms, just the right amount of ambience, business services. The staff is helpful and friendly and the continental breakfast nook is a treat. Also the free satellite TV kept me in touch with the Sopranos while I was catching up on my e-mail via the free high speed wireless internet service. Try it you won't be sorry!

    A fine value, a great location

    from

    We just returned from a long weekend in Boston. The Charlesmark couldn't have been better: location, rooms, amenities, and service. The rooms may be small compared to some of the chain-type hotels, but they more than make up for that in design and comfort. We took full advantage of the satellite TV, video library, and the high-speed internet access. The continental breakfast was ok, and for those who need it, there is a microwave near the ice machine. The hotel is in a lovely area, close to the "T"; we had no trouble getting around. In fact, we enjoyed the surrounding area a lot.
