... tell you about the meeting we enjoyed on Sunday afternoon. The congregation was Jamacia Plain, in the suburb of the same name about a 15 min walk from our accommodation, which is 10 km southwest from Boston CBD.
Outside we were greeted by a couple of brothers, one younger named Brent and one older brother, both African Americans. I introduced myself as John (what else?) And he said "what was that again?" I said John. He ...

And to make the event even more complete, the Dutch consul from Boston, Hans Gieskes, came to pay us a visit. He thought it was a wonderful initiative and was more than excited to join the Dutch festivities. Everyone had a great time playing the weird games and enjoying the orange foods and beverages, and it was really ...

4 May 2013 – Boston, Massachusetts, USA
So that’s the Veendam done. I survived a whole South America season on the ship everybody said was going to be awful and had the best time of my life. This was definitely the best contract I’ve had so far. It seems so ridiculous to actually be packing already, but I’m ready to get going. It’s my mum’s birthday today, so it’s nice to be heading back to see my folks ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Hotel Boston
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.
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.
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.

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!
