    Historical Traveler Reviews Chandler Inn Boston

    Old but Decent

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    from

    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

    from

    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--

    Bad Hotel

    from

    Unfriendly, not very helpful staff. Rooms very small, not much heat, even in very cold weather.

    Great Hotel-Very Friendly

    from

    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

    from

    very bad hotel for that price

    ... garden and the Boston Common. Standing on the edge of the Boston Common we watched a Puerto Rican march of celebration (which went on and on!), with lots of Police and services involvement and lots of blaring of sirens. We couldn't help but think about the recent bombing which occurred in the street we walked. If there were that many sirens for a parade we could only imagine the sirens on the day of the bombing. As we walked to Faneuil Hall we walked through down town Boston ...

We returned to the hotel for awhile and later went out for a meal. There was quite a cool breeze blowing tonight so we came back to the hotel as I didn't want to risk Phillip's cough getting worse. Another lovely day. Happy 60th ...

    ... every Sunday and sometimes the priest reminds us that we don't own the pew and if someone else sits in "our" place we should just find another place and not be mad. Well, in this church people DID own the pews, with walls and a door to keep out strangers! Most of them just had wooden benches, but one, owned by weathly shipping people, had cushy red velvet seats.

    Relieved to find a ferry to take us back and Great ice cream.

    Rested up and then went to watch fireworks. Settled for Boston Common as crowds down by the water. They started early and were stunning- photo ...

    ... it back aboard and throw it again if you like. You the return to the dock and learn more about the individuals who participated in the tea party. One guy got hit on the head by a tea create and we thought to be dead. His friends laid him aside planning to collect his body the next day. They found he had woken up with a headache but was very much alive. Inside the museum they have several high tech holograms of characters from the tea party and revolutionary war. They are ...
