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

Travel Blogs from Boston
So! Here we are, and here we shall start. This blog will be a rough sketch of me jotting down things so I can read it again someday and hopefully recall little, insignificant memories, but hopefully beautiful ones. I'll be doing a kind of 'stream of concious' type of thing since there'll be SO many things to talk about and TOO many thing I'll forget to mention so just jotting it all down here, so pardon any typos, I think as not to spend/waste too much time typing while I'm in ...
... in that sense prefer Washington DC which was beautiful and definitely my favourite place I've ever been to. To continue our journey up the east coast we headed to 34th to the megabus stop where we were scheduled to leave at 12.10pm instead we got delayed by about an hour, but we got talking to another Harvard goer, who was heading back to school for wrestling practice haha so that passed the time. Eventually on the bus, ...
... I ended up having lots of random conversations with people which was kind of fun. A group of french tourists asked me for directions (I had a map and could help - get me!) and we ended up standing around chatting for a while. Then I was drawn into an art gallery by some incredible art in the window. I normally don't go in because I'm worried I'll break something and be stuck with a bill of thousands but I had to look at this. So the woman who runs the gallery came over ...
... cooler filled with a Jamaican rum punch that is made weeks (months?) in advance and is potent as sh*t. We have to put a warning label on the thing every year and we still have casualties. She is a Duke (go Blue Devils!) alum, shares Drea's love of Chinese food, and is quite the DJ (and so I expect a South African playlist....hint, hint). It will be a toss-up if she, Paul or Leonie will have me laughing more on this trip.
... fantastic. We quickly understood why Trip Advisor reviews absolutely rave about this museum. We learnt so much about the conditions on the boats, the history behind the taxes imposed by the British that ****** the Americans off so badly, and the way in which this event led to the War of Independence. I would fully recommend any visitors to the city to throw themselves into it, and go visit. You won't regret it! (Huzahhh!)
In the afternoon, ...
