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 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

J was in charge of ordering breakfast this morning at Penn Station while we waited for our train..... I had had the 'honour' of trying to decipher the NYC breakfast speak the day before and today was his turn...... simple....? the plan was two portions of fried eggs with sausage..... but the result was a lot of pointing at the menu, glazed looks at the server and snatches of 'on a plate please....., hang on, wait a minute.... on a plate...the platter on a plate......' ...
... Although it is obviously much smaller than NYC it still clearly had a healthy business district but without the rush and congestion. The architecture was also very different with plenty of historic colonial buildings which all had a story to tell from the War of Independence. To see them all we followed the popular (and quite tiring) Freedom Trail which took us via famous Public ...
... have existed in all periods of America’s History. A memorial to the fallen heroes of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars was just behind the church. From here we could see a statue of Paul Revere down a long courtyard from the memorial. It was a statue that was immortalized in Longfellow’s. , “A Midnight Ride of Paul Revere”. As we approached the statue, we could see that on this day Paul Revere was wearing a Boston Red Sox’s jersey. Yes, Paul Revere ...
