          Historical Traveler Reviews Clarendon Square Inn Boston

          Exceeding Expectations !


          We recently had a wonderful stay at Clarendon Square. The location was perfect for us, close to tourist attractions, shopping and fantastic dining. We were pleased to find the mood to be professional yet relaxed. The service and accommodations were better than we had expected. Make sure to experience the hot tub on the roof deck!! We would certainly recommend it to others.

          Loved this B&B!!


          We couldn't have asked for anything more. We were looking for a relaxing vacation and that is exactly what we got. The host was exceptional at recommending everything from wonderful restaurants, places to shop, museums and a place for a pedicure! The inn was beautiful- and an awesome view from the rooftop- Perfect place for a glass of wine after a day of exploring Boston- I can't wait to return!

          This Wonderful Place


          My wife and I stayed there twice, in a two week period. The rooms were spacious, clean, and well maintained. The entire inn is wonderfully decorated, has intricate victorian woodwork, and extensive artwork chosen by a real person, not a bland committee.

          The staff was extremely helpful, often preparing maps for our daytrips in Boston. They even knew where to find specific style gardens for us to view. Try finding a moss garden in a guidebook. The staff also let us know of concerts we might be interested in attending.

          We will definitely stay there again.

          Stylish, comfortable and over the top!


          I just stayed at the lovely Clarendon Square during a business trip to Boston. The location was perfect for my work at the convention center and close to super restaurants. My room was stylish, large and clean! The bed was comfortable, and my room had a charming view of the city and street. I appreciate all the personal touches that gave a boutique hotel feeling and a staff that was accessible but not imposing. The Clarendon Square is my pick and gets a top rating.

          Very Romantic


          My husband and I stayed at the Clarendon Square the beginning of December 2004 to celebrate our anniversary. The inn was beautiful and very artfully arranged. The room was very spacious with a marble fireplace and a whirlpool tub. The little extras that we needed throughout our stay (fireplace logs, bottle of wine, wine opener, robes, even matches and first aid) were conveniently and unobtrusively located behind a mirrored door next to our room.

          We really loved using the fireplace!

          Each floor of the inn has 2 rooms. There were a total of six rooms. On the rooftop was our absolute favorite part of the inn - the hot tub. The view was spectacular and the hot tub was wonderful in the 35 degree weather!

          The location was fantastic. Within a 10 minute walk to the nearest T (subway - which is very easy and safe/comfortable to travel). It was easy to get to all the sights in Boston including Fenway Park.

          My husband, who does not like to travel, can not stop talking about the inn and Boston. We will definitely be back and highly reccommend it to anyone!

          Rooftop Wedding Memories


          The Clarendon Square Inn will forever remain close to our hearts... We were married on their rooftop deck, and spent our honeymoon weekend being charmed by the hosts, Stephen and Victor.

          We could not have found a more perfect location to hold our private ceremony, nor could the staff have been any more gracious and accomodating.

          Beautiful decor, spacious and comfortable rooms, a commanding skyline view and quaint location. It all begins at the entrance with one glance at the fabulous Koi pond......

          The Renovation's a Revelation


          Friendly, informative hosts only too happy to help, even beyond the call of duty when a suitcase arrived late. Linens, furnishings and room excellent and the real fire was such a treat when the snow came down.

          Mornings and breakfasts were leisurely: we were never harrassed or hurried. Location is great for the gastronome's section of Tremont. We would certainly recommend the Clarendon Square Inn to anyone looking to stay in Boston.

          Slick, Homey, and a Great Night's Sleep


          This is a terrific inn. It's located in a gorgeous neighborhood that is convenient to everything. The entire place is very well appointed: our room was a nice size with a working fireplace, whirlpool tub, and fantastic bed. Was disappointed we didn't get to try the rooftop jacuzzi, but there's always next time!

          The staff is super friendly and helpful (but not intrusive), the breakfast was tasty, and the entire place is immaculate.

          All this and gay friendly, too!

          I will definitely stay here again when I'm in Boston. Great for couples or single travelers.

          Top marks for the Clarendon Square


          The hotel was absolutely fabulous, with very attentive and helpful hosts. Breakfasts were brilliant and the standard of accommodation fantastic. You won't find better anywhere.

          Warm setting in the still up-and-coming South End


          A pretty brownstone on a well-situated block of the South End, right across the street from a rocking Baptist church and one long block from the restaurants and (limited but fun) shopping scene on Tremont. Easy walk to Copley Square, Newbury St., etc. Friendly proprietor and staff who stay very much out of sight unless you need them. Adequate cold breakfast available from 8-10:30. Just four guest rooms -- ask for the ones facing Brookline Street, and make sure the damper is working on the fireplace... fun to burn a sawdust log. Rooftop hot tub with outstanding skyline views. Be prepared to walk up as many as four long flights of stairs if you're in upper rooms.

There was also the Abbey Room, which told a version of the story of the life of Sir Galahad and his pursuit of the Holy Grail, and on the third floor staircase, a series of murals by John Singer Sargent discussing the history of religion (which some people have condemned as anti-semitic). We also learned a bit about the history of Boston, including that the area on which the Library was built was originally part of ...

          ... soup is well seasoned overall. Next was the Johnny cake, which is a corn pancake, this item has the best rating of any item on Zagat's list for Boston foods. It is a corn pancake topped with smoked trout and some caviar on the top. The saltiness of the trout and the caviar balanced with the maple butter which balanced it well. oh, did I mention the maple butter? it was absolutely drenched in it. When I say ...

          ... hot and muggy that it wasn't going to be doable. Felt just like New York when you drive in over the highway bridge bit seeing the cities skyline. We headed for fanuiel hall market place. Buzzy little area with street performers & copious amounts of food places and shops. Cute little stalls everywhere selling Boston related things & trinket bits. We headed into the actual hall and oh my god it was massive! One long corridor with what ...

          ... We rode to stop 5 and got off at Fanueil Hall and walked to the replica of Cheers to eat. It was pretty good but not a super extensive menu. We found out we had to be on the last trolley by 5 which curtailed how much we could do in Boston unless we wanted to walk back to South Station or figure out a different public transportation to get there and plus we'd already paid for the trolley tour. The second trolley ...

          ... By now of course Starbucks had educated me to understand the if I wanted a small coffee I asked for a 'Tall'. I know but that's how it is. So I asked for a tall here and that's exactly what I got. Quite a large drink. Oh dear, I'll get it right tomorrow. Now negotiating rain, people and crossings where cars launch at you from the opposite direction and carrying breakfast and two tall coffees, suddenly the wind blew up Huntington Road at its full ...
