Historical Traveler Reviews Club Quarters Boston
My husband and I and one other couple went and loved Boston, everyone there was willing to help with directions. The Hotel was within walking distance to everything. I thought the price and rooms were pretty nice so I don't know what people expect from it. I thought the front desk agents were really polite, we had no problem and would definately recommend this place to anyone and would stay there again. The only thing that I thought was missing was the lack of restaurants that were open on the wkd in that area because it is the financial district..have a good time...
Walls of paper
You'll pay the typical downtown Boston price for a small, but clean, hotel room. While Club Quarters was nice enough, secure and comfortable, none of that can make up for the horrible construction. I could hear EVERY D*MN NOISE my neighbors made, and as a result got very little sleep. Pray that you don't have drunk people next door, or that they don't start doing the humpty dance at 3:00 am. Despite any good qualities this hotel might have, I was miserable the whole time, and so give Club Quarters the lowest rating. Don't risk it.
Worst Night Ever
Although the rate was good, it was the worst night I've ever had in a hotel and I've stayed in a few. The doors are paper thin and you can hear every word spoken in the hallway and every door opening and closing on the floor. I will stay clear of this chain forever!
Excellent Location, close to station from the Airport, close to shopping. Staff could do with some improvement in manners, I have no problem with people speaking in their own language, but not whilst there are guests awaiting attention, we got them back by speaking in our's - gaelic that threw them!! The room was fine, once you were a size 4 and did'nt need room to get around, and no bath, shortage on shampoo. Handy Italian around the corner for those that are awake early in the morning, they open at 6am until 3pm.
Perfect for a tourist
We booked through Expedia and paid around $140 a night inc tax. Taking the T from the airport to State station only cost $1 and the station is about a 4 min walk from the hotel. Although the room was quite dark, it was spacious. It had a fridge and microwave as well as kitchen utensils etc. The bathroom was quite small though. The hotel has a small lounge with free internet access. Elephant & Castle pub has a nice atmosphere, and the food it quite good. The hotel was in a prime location to most tourist attractions and anything that was not within walking distance was easily got to with the T. Downtown crossing shopping area, Quincy Market, Boston Common etc are all a short walk away. Would def recomend the Club Quarters.
Terrible hotel but great restaurant
We stayed for the weekend in August. The front desk staff was horrible and rude. Our room was dirty, the sheets smelled of cigarette smoke (in a non-smoking room). The bed sheets where dirty, there was no fitted sheet just a flat sheet covering the bed. I had to get a quilt in the second floor, there where only two and they reeked of cigarette smoke and had not been cleaned. The room was badly cleaned, the note I left to please remove the quilt was ignored, and the quilt was just left on the floor. The bathroom was terribly small, theyre where two towels and one was frayed the other dirty, thank God I had brought my own. Every time you walked over to ask a question to the desk staff they looked at you as if they had better things to do, very rude.On the other hand the hotels restaurant was great the food was delicious, the staff was helpful, the restaurant manager was knowledgeable about the city and about things to do.I would never recommend that hotel to any one.
We spent two nights at the Club Quarters in Sept to start our vacation in the northeast. After reading some reviews about the hotel, I was kind of anxious, but was happily surprised. We took the subway from the airport and it was an easy block and a half walk to the hotel from the subway station. Check in was simple, our room was small but entirely adequate, and the Elephant and Castle next door had good food and a wide selection of beers on tap and single malt scotches. The location was great (a few block walk to Fanieul Hall), and the price was right. There was a fitness room which looked nice, but we didn't use it due to all the walking we did in Boston.
Are you crazy?
You'd have to be if you paid $200-$350 per night to stay in the Financial District!I paid $107 for a weekday night. The hotel was clean, very convenient, and a real bargain. Staff was friendly and check-in/check-out was VERY fast. I took a five minute walked and grabbed dinner in Quincy Market.Another big plus: Free 802.11b wireless internet in your room.The only complaint I have is to echo a previous reviewer in saying that the walls may be a little thin -- I could clearly hear my neighbors door opening and closing.If you really want to pay $200 more for another nearby hotel, go ahead. As far as I'm concerned you're just wasting your money.
A great bargain!
This hotel was a great bargain, considering the high prices of hotels in Boston. I booked the room thru Expedia for only $99 a night, and it is located right in the heart of the city! All the major attractions were either within walking distance, or just a short subway ride away.
The room itself was small, but clean and comfortable. I don't think there is another place you could stay at in the center of the city for that price!
Loved the Location and Price, but...
Located in the financial district on Devonshire St., Club Quarters offers a reasonable rate for a convenient location in downtown Boston. This hotel has a small lobby, a nice "club room" with internet access, warm wood paneling and a fireplace, and an adjacent restaurant/pub. Our room was clean and orderly, and included a small bar refrigerator. My biggest complaint was that we were booked into a room for wheelchair access, which meant dealing with a shower that leaked an inch of water throughout the bathroom floor when taking a shower. I would highly suggest checking with hotel staff if you are not in need of wheel chair access. The location of this hotel was well suited to downtown shopping and was a definite plus. A short walk and you're in the heart of Quincy Market and a quick T ride to Copley Square. A quick three block walk and you're bargain hunting in Filene's and the Jewelry District. The adjacent restaurant serves a reasonably priced, tasty Sunday Brunch, however service was less than stellar in two visits to this restaurant. The hotel staff was friendly and attentive. I would stay at Club Quarters again because of reasonable downtown rates and the excellent location, but would most likely ask to see my room before settling in.

... the gated square to see the actual university - disappointing! Our timing doesn't allow longer than a two night stop so we packed up yet again - I sort out anything inside that needs to be packed away for travelling and Peter the outside hoses etc. The caravan has an electric jockey wheel so that makes life a lot easier. Within about ten minutes we can be on the road again. Cape Cod (home to the original Cape Cod architectural style) is affectionately known as Kennedy Country as ...
... our stop. We caught a taxi to our hotel and then went up to our room. When I say room I think I mean suite. It is a gorgeous room. So big with a sitting room, a big bed, a gorgeous bathroom all so spacious. Think we will stay here for the next 3 weeks!
We dragged ourselves away from this beautiful suite and went investigating. Right across the road is a beautiful park which we walked through. Saw another squirrel just hanging on the ...
... the Italians settled and where there are a ton of Italian restaurants. I wanted seafood on the waterfront, but at that point we had been walking for 3 hours non-stop and what I wanted more than anything was a chair. So we had Italian.
Then we walked to Long Wharf. It had been a little warm walking around, but when we got there the wind picked up and it was cold! So we headed back ...
... to head back up to bed. We woke up for the second time after nine which would have been after six on the west coast. We were running low on clean clothes and the laundry at the hotel cost about $7 per item so we googled 'laundry near me' and got directions to a laundry in the South End district about a 10 minute walk away. We got our entire load washed and dried for $7 which had to be fed into the machines in quarters. We chatted to some of the friendly locals and had a ...
... morning we have an early flight home. Final thoughts - Jack enjoyed Vermont best, Lauralee, Grace, and myself enjoyed Boston best. We would love to see Vermont in the fall with the maple trees in color. We would also like to see a Red Sox game at Fenway. I had some friends comment that Delaware does have some beautiful areas - we just did not get to see them. Maybe another trip we will explore Delaware and find them. Next trip is this summer. See you then. Jon, Lauralee, Jack & ...
