Old but Decent
It's difficult to find an affordable hotel in Boston. This one is adequate. The rooms are small. One admonition...make sure that you don't get the room closest to the antiquated and LOUD elevator.
Comfortable hotel with good location
We stayed at this hotel in May 2003 and found it clean & comfortable.
The building is old and the design/size of the rooms are influenced by this. There is a bit more character than some of these modern concrete hotels. Although the bar is principally for gay clientelle this did not appear to affect the actual hotel itself. Location was excellent for going into Boston centre or down to the Back Bay area which was very interesting. We'd certainly give this hotel consideration on a return visit to Boston.
Clean, cosy and comfortable
Stayed at the Chandler Inn in November. Rooms are small, but very clean and stylish. Staff were helpful and directed us to a yummy local resturant. Good value for money and quiet location that is still handy to everything. I would stay there again. Much more character than the chain hotels. I'm glad I ddin't take the negative reviews too seriously.
Be careful booking on line
small rooms, sheets and towels were once upon a time white! it smells... no parking secured for the guests. with a gay bar. worst experience......
Central, clean and quiet
I spent four nights at Chandler Inn recently and my feelings about the hotel are generally favorable. Contrary to what is said on the internet and in at least one tour book, the hotel does not serve a continental breakfast. Coffee and tea are available in the lobby throughout the day.The location is excellent; the staff has little to say and it is an overstatement to say that they are "friendly and helpful". I would recommend this hotel to the traveler who wants a quiet room at low/moderate cost.
Chandler - A nice place to stay but not a luxury hotel.
I stayed at the Chandler a few years ago. It was a nice, clean room, though a little small. The staff were professional. A little old-fashioned, like they make you leave your key at the front desk when you leave and the elevator's pretty old. I'd stay there again. I paid a great price for what I got .
Good basic hotel
You must understand what this hotel is! It is not a resort hotel, but it a good, clean, centrally located, friendly accommodations...at a fair price. Caters to a gay clientele, and the open minded. Attached is a nice friendly sports / neighborhood bar Fritz that welcomes everyone (Best bartender is Andrew - great sense of humor) Brunch every Saturday and Sunday--
Unfriendly, not very helpful staff. Rooms very small, not much heat, even in very cold weather.
Great Hotel-Very Friendly
Hotel is great for the price. They tailor to your needs. Very private. Very homey. Close to train, theatres, the trolley, and shopping.
I would recommend for a relaxing vacation.
very bad hotel for that price

... in keeping with the style, lots of girders and distinct areas of the ground. We ate in the ground, lots of meat and melted cheese which seems to be a theme here.
We see a home run and the result, not only on the scoreboard but on the car windscreen outside the ground.

Blimey what a great day, all family asleep now and I think I will join them.
... Once in the terminal asked(for a guy asking directions...) how to get the other terminal shuttle and found my way there.The security check was taking long ,x-ray machine broken, so went for a walk and happened upon an Air Canada desk.Ask about the departure , the clerk states it is cancelled. A rush of thought enters my mind, what to do now, stuck in Boston. The patient clerk booked another seat for the next day.Also, offered a hotel and meal voucher ...
... at Northeastern (it’s in the book!) and Phil, and me, are in the few people that he still recognized. He is getting worse and that is very sad. Next to a road by Crystal (the other) Lake where we talked with a WW2 vet that Phil had met and liked. He, Gunnar, and wife, both in 80s and she is still working in an insurance company! Another good visit. Café Italia for dinner tonight and home to relax.
