    Historical Traveler Reviews Eliot Hotel Boston

    Excellent for dog owners and non-dog owners alike!

    from

    We have nothing but praise for the Eliot Hotel.

    We enjoy bringing our dog along on our travels, but it is usually difficult to find a quality hotel which will accept a dog of her size (Lab mix). We felt we (AND our dog) were welcome from the moment we first called for our reservation to the moment we left.

    We were very pleased with the spaciousness, comfort and cleanliness of our accommodation. A suite that actually is a suite! The staff was pleasant, professional and helpful. The concierge even arranged for a dogsitter to come to our suite so that we were able to go out to dinner.

    For dog owners, the Eliot is located across the street from Commonwealth Park, which runs all the way to the Public Garden.

    Excellent for walking your dog!

    We will most definitely stay at the Eliot Hotel again -with or without our dog

    Beautiful comfortable and private and personal

    from

    My husband and I met friends in Boston. They were winding up a business trip that had booked them at the Marriott. The Mariott is a beautiful hotel. But the contrast between the business, convention atmosphere at the Mariott and the private luxury at the Eliot was remarkable. So remarkable that after our friends visited our room they left the Mariott - even though the company would have paid for another night there -and checked into the Eliot for our last day and night in Boston.

    This hotel feels like a step back in time. It was luxurious, comfortable and private. The staff was pleasant and attentive yet unobtrusive. The room appointments were plush, clean, very spacious and well thought out. There were accomodations for business travelers without hte whole atmosphere being about work. Our room wasn't overlooking the street and was quiet. As quiet as downtown Boston can be. Our friends room was over the street and even though one of them sleeps VERY LIGHTLY she remarked on a great restful night. It was an unforgettable wonderful experience. We all wished we could have stayed longer and voted this place to be one that we will come back to.

    Wonderful hotel

    from

    Having stayed a thalf of the larger hotels over the years in Boston, both in the Back Bay and waterfront area, this by far is the best one we have had the pleasure of staying at. It is more like having a luxury apartment inn the best part of the city. we stayed for a weekend and wished we could have stayed longer, wonderful staff, beautiful well decorated suite, with view of Comm Ave, prettiest street in town. Walk out he door and turn and you are on Newbury St with everything at your disposal, . Clio's Restraunt is out of this world, dinner and breakfast were fabulous, I will never stay at another hotel in Boston, there are some great rates on their website, check them out before you book, although I booked first and then saw the deals and they changed my rates to meet the deal. All in all 5 plus stars.

    Good size rooms, central location

    from

    We stayed at The Eliot for a long weekend. Suites are a large and price was quite reasonable. Room was very clean and the staff are courteous.

    A word of warning - this hotel is on a busy corner and traffic noise can be quite loud. We had read this site before choosing the Eliot and had asked for a room away from the street but we had to switch as the noise from the air conditioner was too loud. We were moved to a suite almost on the top floor and this was fine. The prudential Centre shopping mall is a 5 to ten minute walk and you can pick up the trolley tours there.

    Above average for special price deal

    from

    Stayed 30 July-2 August, 2003, One-bedroom suite at usd 152 p.n.

    (matchmaker rate). For this price hotel is def. worth a stay. However, for their standard rates I would look for alternative. Rooms nice but need renovation. Rooms/suites seems larger on hotels website, but still comfortable. Watch out for rooms towards street (even if high location) as it is a very noicy location (traffic). Changed to court yard room which much better (although noice from ventilation system). Had many difficulties with receiving correct reservation confirmation and had to request corrected confirmations (number 4 was finally correct). Watch out for telephone charges! Got charges for non executed international calls at close to usd 80. Location of hotel good. Breakfast overcharged and not very overwhelming.

    Wonderful experience

    from

    We stayed at the Eliot when we were visiting colleges with our daughter. The suite was beautiful and very spacious for the 4 of us (2 double beds in the bedroom and a sleep sofa in the living room, 2 TVs, mini-bar with room to add items you buy on your own, and we were given a microwave upon request). Our younger son loved being able to explore Boston, and the hotel is walking distance from the Prudential Center.

    The staff was professional, friendly and extremely polite. One desk clerk even wrote walking directions for us to get to Boston Univeristy and driving directions to Boston College. The breakfast in the morning in the restaurant was wonderful too. Valet parking was efficient and well-managed. We will stay here again.

    Avoid at all cost

    from

    My stay at the Eliot was a nightmare! The staff was rude...the door man ignored us as we struggled to get heavy bags up the steps and through the door. The room was tiny, stuffy and cramp...you can't even turn around in the bath room...The parking valet left my car on the street, unattended, for 6 hours...the room had no "extras"...no refridgerator or microwave...there wasn't even a dresser to put our clothes in, only a nightstand. They don't even have an ice machine available! then the air conditioning broke down...The room was over 90 degrees...we called the front desk and we were told "someone will be up to check it". No one ever showed up. The next day, the water was shut off. We couldn't even flush the toilet. (Maybe I'm "demanding" but for over $800 for a 3 night stay, I think we should have running water!) We ended up checking out a day early. When we went to the desk to inform them that we had had enough, the desk clerk asked if we "called anyone" about the air conditioning, water, etc...I said "Yes...you...I recognize your voice!" She just said "Hmmm..." It was the worst hotel I've ever stayed in!

    Unforgettable

    from

    I am a General Manager of a hotel and attended a hotel conference in Boston. The housing people put me up at the Eliot Hotel.

    They could not have put me at a better hotel. One can see the old world charm as soon as you enter the lobby. I truly wish that I could get staff half as good as these people. Everyone smiled and asked how my stay was. I was in a suite (most of the rooms are suites) and it was fantastic. I was amazed at the attention to detail. All of the furniture is custom made.

    Being in the hotel business, I always look for flaws in other operations. I could not find one thing wrong. I would give the Eliot Hotel an A+. This will be my hotel of choice in Boston.

    Eliot is great

    from

    We stayed at the Eliot in mid December 2002. It is a great hotel. The rooms are gorgeous and very spacious. The front desk staff was very helpful. The housekeeping staff was very attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel. It is a block away from the T and a few blocks into the heart of Copley. I would suggest asking for a room not facing Massachuesetts Ave because the room was noicy from all the traffic. But everything else was great!

    Great Hotel!

    from

    We stayed at the Eliot this past summer and were very happy with our accomodations. Each room is a suite with a separate bedroom, sitting room and bath. Our two year old loved the special "tubby toy" gift pack that was placed in his crib and we were thrilled with the homemade cookies. Everyone was very nice and went the extra mile to make our stay a special one. You really should also eat at the hotel's restaurant, Clio too. It is absolutely fabulous!!!

    Good morning, Bahston!

    If you guessed that I'd be staring at the ceiling at 3am, then you win! Bit early to be wandering around Boston though, so I hung on -and dozed- until just before 7am; up and out by 8am. I enquired at the desk as to the easiest way to downtown Boston. They weren't too helpful. The first free shuttle into the city doesn't leave until 10am?! What good is that.. wastes half the morning.

Wouldn't ya know, it was still sitting there on the lady's desk while she was on vacation for a whole week! For real!? I know there is a lot going on at a clinic, but she knew the circumstances and I had even called to remind her when the fax went through of what needed to happen. I took a deep breath when I realized what happened, ...

Most times you can not even see the traffic traveling the other way. Only when you come to the townships do you find traffic sharing the road in both directions and often a lot of these streets are one way also. Plymouth is where the first settlers set up home when they arrived on the ...

We chose not to go on the optional dinner but had our own fun finally finding a fine dinning seafood restaurant where we attacked with some difficulty a variety of chilled shell fish and crustations. The above resulted in limited photos ...
