      Historical Traveler Reviews Colonnade Hotel Boston

      Ducks in Beantown

      from

      Well its not the Ritz or Four Seasons but its certainly not a typical Sheraton or Hilton. Collonade Hotel in Boston was terrific. Rooms are huge and the staff was extremely friendly. I would highly recommend. Read another review that said the elevators were slow... we found out they installed new ones and we never waited for one. What really impressed us was the nice touches like a DUCK in every room. Our little one was so happy to receive his own rubber duck. Their new fitness center was terrific. It looked brand new and had all the things I use at the gym - ellipticals and free weights. We ate in their restaurant, Braserie Jo and it was amazing. Good thing we were guests of the hotel, it was packed. Terrific location for shopping, and a baseball game at Fenway, Highly recommend.

      Beantown Bliss

      from

      Visited the Colonnade this past weekend. I had never heard of them before but found it to be a surprising find. Great location in Back Bay with all of the shopping. I walked over to Fenway which was 3 blocks away... They had a T stop (Bostons train) outside the front door, which was convenient for me to go see my friends north of boston. Their health club was incredible. It must be brand new... everything looked fresh. Unfortunately, I had to check a couple of e-mails (not a complete vacation) but they had a business center that was reasonable there. Oh, there's a huge Barnes and Noble across the street from the hotel. It has 2 Starbucks (awesome) and a large selection. Spent some time there. The staff of the hotel was very nice and genuine. I would recommend this hotel to anyone...

      Best Kept Secret -TIP

      from

      We had never heard of this hotel before. Found it on the internet. Arrived at the hotel and got a little nervous when we saw the outside. But it was a great location - near the malls and Fenway. Turns out the inside is nothing like the outside- beautiful lobby- cherry wood and huge flowers and chandelere. Staff was exceptional. My family and I thought they were extremely friendly. They had valet parking - guess everyone does in boston. We went out and visited Boston and their concierge was excellent in giving suggestions. The room was very comfortable and had big windows the whole length of the room. TIP / Word of advice - - ask for the rooms facing the front of the hotel - they have much nicer bathrooms.

      My One Night Of Luxury

      from

      I spent an excellent night at the Colonnade Hotel having arrived in Boston for the very first time. The staff were excellent, as was the room. I was fortunate enough to arrive at the beginning of Summer 2001, as a local paper proudly heralded and I made the most of the rooftop pool. This in itself was worth the money... blazing temperatures, a pool 11(?) flights up, and Moby and Bob Marley on the rooftop stereo... What an amazing day. My only regret was that this was a single night of extravagance as I spent my remaining month in and around Boston hostelling. Dont get me wrong, I loved the hostelling part but oh for one more night at the Colonnade! I would recommend it to anyone and I intend to at least squeeze in one night there if I make it back to Boston in summer 2003.

      Reminds me of Europe

      from

      We thought this hotel was a nice surprise. Not much in terms of the outside look but their staff was so nice. They were friendly and the concierge told us everything great in Boston. We went to a Celtics game and when we got back to the hotel - the person remembered us and asked how we enjoyed the game.There is a restaurant at the hotel named Brassere Jo. Not sure if it is part of the hotel or not.. but it was terrific and affordable. With the parking in Boston being so expensive it was niec to find great food at a fair price. I would recommend their french fries which were better than Mcdonalds.Overall, we were very pleased with the hotel. We have stayed there before in another hotel that was mediocre at best. This hotel reminds us of the european hotels... lots of charm and understated elegance.

      What a Great Hotel

      from

      Stayed there with my family on February 14th - Had a phenomenal valentines dinner in their French restaurant. Kids loved their welcome kid packs. We were even able to borrow some N Sync CD's from their comlimentary library. Only complaint was that the pool wasn't open as it is on the hotel's roof. Staff was extremely courteous and you cannot beat the location. It was cold out and the bellman pointed out this new tunnel that connects the hotel to the prudential mall. . . how convenient. I would whole-heartedly recommend this to anyone. Luxury hotel for a reasonable price.

      The Worst!

      from

      The room was AWFUL!!! It was small, dark and dingy....The bathroom was so small, you had to stand in a certain spot in order to even close the bathroom door! We were booked for two nights and left after the first night.. It was nothing like the web site!!

      Grossly misrepresented on most websites... don't be fooled!

      from

      The front desk was rude, there was mildew in the tub, there was no shampoo provided, there was no CD player in the room, it was badly furnished, ugly, ugly, UGLY... to put it bluntly, the only thing this property has going for it is its location. Avoid at all cost. Don't be fooled: this hotel isn't chic nor "European-style"... it is nothing more than a Holiday Inn, and badly appointed at that.

      Think Twice

      from

      The Colonnade Hotel in Boston was a terrible disappointment. Good sized, nicely appointed rooms, excellent location close to great shopping, dining and transport, but completely and utterly soul-less. It also is the noisiest hotel I have ever stayed at. The rooms fronting busy Huntington Avenue are not sufficiently sound-proofed. Housekeeping staff were unbelievably inconsiderate despite our having the Privacy Please sign on our door – lots of chatting between rooms, laughing and banging of trolleys. While it is unusual to have an impact drill tearing away at concrete in your hotel, we also had that to contend with and it got to the point where we went for a walk for a few hours, just to get away from the noise INSIDE our hotel room! I brought it to the attention of the Front Desk, they promised to bring it up with the Duty Manager, and despite my leaving a second message directly with his office, he didn’t bother to get back to me. Food and beverage prices are also disproportionately high compared to the quality of the property.

      In summary, the better than usual promotional rates simply aren’t worth it. For very little more, stay at the higher quality Marriott Copley Place. It is just as well located (one minute’s walk up from The Colonnade) and a far better hotel in every respect.

      What a great hotel. Arrived with two boys and the front desk gave them a fanny pack filled with toys. If that wasnt enough...once we got to the room there was a duck in the tub. I then realized my problem only 1 duck. Called the front desk and they hand delivered another one for my other son. What great service, and location. Secret discovery found is that the Colonnade is now connected to the Mall via the underground T and only blocks from Fenway...Highly recommend hotel.

      The weeks leading up to my flight was fantastic, I read The Dubliners, Angela's Ashes, The Cripple of Inashmaan (about one of the Aran islands which I'm totally going to do a day trip to), finally started to learn the history of Ireland, starting with the movie Michael Collins and the wind that shakes the Barley, and delved deep into my Rick Steves tour book which ...

      ... finally! so not out in the wild but still. Very cute little critters. I just wish I hadn't gone on a weekend. Way to many small people to trip over and waaaay to many parents with ankle biting pushchairs.

      Then it was hockey tiiiiiiiime! This was what I had been waiting for! The rink is only a stones throw from the hostel so I walked over and got in line to show my ticket at the door. The atmosphere was buzzing! So many people excited to see the game, ...

Dale bought some new runners, Riley got some Jordan basketball shoes, and Cooper and Sam got a cap each plus some other bits and pieces....... We had a small bite for lunch to keep us going for tea and now we are on the road heading to Boston, Massachusetts! About a 2 hour, 20 minute drive, without pee stops....

I had come dressed for the beach, swimming shorts and all, but encroached about three inches into the sea, before cursing the cold, and returning to my beach towel, feeling defeated. The wind was also pretty brutal on occasion, meaning that fairly regular sandstorms battered us while we relaxed. We lasted a couple of hours, before gratefully retiring for the pub.

      The pub would have been otherwise uneventful, if George ...

      ... treesh), she called out, over and over. An older man who I assume was their grandfather, waited for them to check-in on the other side of the tape. Instead of appearing sad about his family’s departure, he just kept cracking jokes with the girls and allowing them to play peek-a-boo behind him. I was up next, and an airport employee looked in my direction and pointed. The glare in her glasses made me wonder as if she ...
