Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Hotel Boston
Not quite Four Seasons fabulous
The highlights are the excellent location, impressive restaurant/lounge, friendly staff and good pool/gym facilities. We stayed in a deluxe king room which was graciously upgraded from a moderate room. Adequately decorated but not the expected over-the-top luxury. Wireless internet access was a plus but not complimentary. The bed was very comfortable and the marble bathroom with L'Occitane items and comfy robe was a treat. The spa-like swimming pool and gym area was delightful, serving complimentary fresh fruit and thick, plush terry towels. The attached lounge and restaurant were impressive with terrific views of the Public Garden. The red brick exterior of the building has surpisingly little character for such a charming, historic city. Overall, an above average stay. Considering the hefty room rate ($325+/night) and uninspiring room decor/exterior, not Four Seasons fabulous but clearly better than most.
Service, Location, Style
The Four Seasons Boston embodies the service, location and style that one would expect of any Four Seasons. What distinguishes the property from others is the geniune focus on making EACH guest feel welcome and accomodating every possible need before you even know it is needed. For example, we had a few bottles of champagne that we brought for a small get together and the concierge came and brought wine glasses (correctly matched to the wine) and several ice buckets. When people got loud later in the evening, the hotel security handled it in the classiest way possible.
July 4 at the Four Seasons
My wife and I stayed at the Four Seasons Boston over the July 4 weekend with our 6-month-old son. We found the location ideal, the accomodations plush and the service up to Four Seasons' usual extremely high standard. We felt comfortable using the hotel's excellent baby-sitting services and the concierges were able to get us short-notice reservations at two of the city's most popular restaurants. We would happily return.
Great location, great staff, but needs updating...
My husband and I just returned from a weekend at the Four Seasons in Boston and have mixed reviews. I must say that the hotel in is a really wonderful location and that the staff are very accomodating and pleasant. We were however very disappointed with the condition of the rooms. They were clean but very dated and drab. They are in desperate need of a facelift. They have begun the renovations and offered us the updated suite for 1200.oo a night. Clearly no bargain and not worth it. They did switch us to an executive suite with garden views that was better than our original room, but still not updated or appealing. The views were lovely outside our window, but not so inside. Overall, we enjoyed out stay, but feel that this Four Seasons has some "work" to do in coming up to par with the others.
FSHB has it all: food, service, location
I just completed a five-night stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston. The hotel is housed in a non-descript eight story red brick building located on prime real estate facing Boston Common and the Public Garden. The location is ideal. You can walk to many of Boston's best attractions and businesses. I stayed in a standard room on the seventh floor situated at the rear of the hotel. You'll pay more for a park view room over looking Boylston Street. My room was clean, comfortable and spacious. I wouldn't describe my room as ostentatious or luxurious. The bathroom floor and shower were marble with a tub and shower (curtain) configuration. I found the staff well trained, helpful and professional.
The service in the work out/pool area was very polished. The hotel even washed my work out clothes and delivered them to my room the next morning. This is one of several complimentary services provided by the hotel. I also utilized the free overnight shoeshine service and town car transportation (after 5pm-two mile limit). These are services some hotels typically "nickel and dime" you for. The high speed Internet connection in my room was problematical and frustrating at times, which required several calls to the hotel tech support person.
The hotel has two highly rated restaurants and I ate in both of them several times. The acclaimed Aujour'dui was recently renovated and is a very elegant place to dine. I ordered the four course-tasting menu paired with wines selected for each course. Expect to pay around $250 (tax and tip included) for the wine dinner for two. The lobster bisque was incredible, followed by salmon, lamb and dessert courses. The peanut butter mascapone dessert was rich and favorful. Our waiter only exhibited a bit of attitude when we requested a minor substitution to the tasting menu. After checking with the chef the change was approved. The less formal Bristol Lounge also has been remodeled and is a good place to meet for drinks or dinner. The piano bar and fireplace all add to the ambience. The wait staff was friendly and had no problem with making substitutions to the menu. Expect a three course meal for two with a glass of wine to run around $100-120 with tax and tip.
If you're into gourmet desserts try Finale, which is located on the street behind the hotel. For a few laughs try The Blueman Group, tickets $56/person. The theater is within walking distance.
The FSHB is located in a premier location for doing business or for pleasure. The staff was upbeat, cheerful and professional. My five-night stay was enjoyable.
Best in boston
the four seasons hotel chian continues to dominate the up market bissness with this great hotel. set in a great part in boston the hotel is great except it is not forth 5 stars as there are many more hotels at the some what same price rang that could be consedered better.
would recamend for boston but not for young children.
Would not recommend anymore
I have stayed at many Four Seasons before, but the property in Boston is getting exhausted. There is construction day in/out. I will continue to stay in other Four Seasons, but not Boston...
A great place to stay
I recently stayed at the hotel and thought the standard of service high and professional. The food was excellent and the staff pleasant and helpful. I have not stayed at this hotel before (in fact I had never heard of Four Seasons) but definitely, when I go to Boston again, or any other State (in fact I went to Atlanta and NY and the hotels I stayed in were no where close to the standard of FSH) I will want to stay in the Four Seasons Hotel.
The Four Seasons is still the best
FSHB is one of the best hotels in the country. Its employees are pleasant, professional, and well trained. They always have the guests' best interests in mind. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms spacious, clean, andextremely comfortable. The restaurant, Aujourd'hui, is among the best in the city. The food is exquisite. Room service and brunch are also wonderful. This is the best Boston has to offer!
Four Seasons top notch!
This is one of the truly first class hotels anywhere! Prime location across from the Public Gardens, convenient to restaurants, theater, shopping. Beautifully appointed rooms and outstanding service. Really a splurge but well worth it!

... to an expected unpaved portion. That unpaved portion turned out to be somewhat more rugged than expected, to the consternation of a certain female of our partnership, and it didn't help that we got a bit off track and ended up outside of the Park. All worked out though, and we made our way back to the campground by 5:30 or so for a relaxing beer or two. That certain female is actually quite pleased with herself for accomplishing a nice little trail bike adventure in ...

On thursday day I headed into the famed witch town of Salem. Contrary to popular belief (and what I thought) there were no 'witches' burned at the stake in Salem.

As long as I can remember, I have wanted to travel around the world. For years I have obsessed over travel books planning where I would go if I ever had the chance. Inspired by stories from my Uncle Tony, Uncle Colin and Auntie Lexie, I have dreamt of seeing what life is all about in other countries and cultures. I am naturally drawn to people who ...
