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

... dean's list for this semester. After my finals, I got some more time to just explore Boston with my friends. Those are some of my favorite memories with them, just adventuring around, no plan of action, just going wherever looks interesting. Tuesday night I took a trip to Boston Ballet's production of the Nutcracker. I was completely blown away and could not be more excited to be working with them next semester. Then on Wednesday we went to Cambridge, wandering around Harvard ...
... This is definitely a town that's on my list to come back to and explore when I'm not being shuttled between airport, hotel and cruise terminal. Twenty four hours amounts to being here just mere seconds with all there is to see. Top of my list for a legitimate visit will be the Museum of Fine Arts, a city tour, and so many of the historical sites bean town has to offer. Until next time ...
... and I was about to float Mary Poppins like across the roof of our hotel. Not wanting to return a damaged umbrella, after much serious juggling and wrestling with umbrellas and breakfast I arrived safely home. Wendy rushed to the door with open arms and heartfelt gratitude for my near death experience- well after I roused her from slumber that is!!! So eventually we set off to explore a bit more of Boston wrapped up in our impervious clothing. Previously, ...
... a nice small bowl of Texas chili and now I will read the study case one more time before I head off to bed. I go to bed so early, so it's actually no wonder that I'm up so early too. But we finish off around lunch time on Friday, so I might get some more sightseeing done then.
And hey, I'm not a good example of the student life. The "youngsters" do go off to party. But don't ask me where. And I'm sure they won't tell an old lady.
... price to and from the airport. Our hotel, Hotel Saint Sulpice is beautiful.....our room is huge with a sitting area and kitchenette as well. We wandered down to the water front to get a light bite for tea and then came back to the room to watch the hockey from Madison Square Garden. Travelling is tiring, even a short flight....should sleep well before a day of exploring ...
