    Historical Traveler Reviews Chandler Inn Boston

    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 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--

    Bad Hotel


    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.

    Gay hotel


    very bad hotel for that price

    After our lunch we finished off our trip to the museum with a look at the some English portrait painting of the 18th and early 19th centuries, and a look at some expressionist work, before catching the T-line back to the Prudential mall, so that we could cruise through the shopping centre (including getting some afternoon coffee at Barnes & Noble) before getting back to the hotel.

    They let this schmuck anywhere apparently.

    ... server and they happen to have a single spot available. Score! It sometimes pays to be a single traveler.

    I get the three things that the location is famous for: chowder, johnny cakes and of course, the lobster roll. The Chowder is a decent affair, they mention that it is fresh made which explains why it is thinner than what we are used to. It is more of a soup but the flavor of the clams really shines ...

    Seeing as I didn't get in till half 3 this morning I'm surprised I was up as early as I was! Still wasn't dressed and out the house before 12 again but loving the chilled mornings. Felt good to have a protein shake for breakfast. Then it was in the car again heading for a day out in Boston. Been looking forward to going there, so many people had said it was a good city & it didn't disappoint. Didn't see all of it but it's so massive & ...

After a cuppa and a few battles with the hotel's WIFI we were able to FaceTime Canberra and say happy birthday to our latest 8year old before he left for school. A daunting task awaits us ...

    ... in New England, this beating the life of a small tenancy at best back in England. The colonists arrived late after delays and 50%25 perished in the harsh winter of 1620. They strayed from target due to various setbacks. They had intended to land south of Cape Cod but could not sail around it. They found Cape Cod unsuitable. Plymouth was OK but Boston with a large natural harbour would have been better as was proved later. It was difficult to make money by the trade generated and so ...
