      Historical Traveler Reviews Clarendon Square Inn Boston

      Exceeding Expectations !

      from

      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!!

      from

      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

      from

      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!

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      The following day was a walk up Mont Royal in the snow. There was a great view of the city at the top and I enjoyed sitting in the place that used to be a chateau to warm up and listen to a guy play the public piano extremely well while the sun streamed ...

      ... much time in the bookstore I decided I should head MIT-wards. So I did. I only had a short look around as I was quite tired by then. I was going to get the subway into Back Bay so I could take a look at the Boston Public Library. But I looked at the map on city mapper (thank you Ellie for introducing me to that, it is amazing!) and decided it was just as easy to walk across the bridge back into Back Bay. Plus it meant that I got a great view over the ...

      The final day in Boston and we opted for a bit of a witch hunt, in Salem to be precise, north of Boston. The weather was dull and cloudy, but very soon turned into a hot, sunny day, balmy and mediterranean. We had to cross the city late in the rush hour period, but soon we were over the river and heading north. We parked easily right by the Visitors' Centre which first of ...

      > October 8, found us at St. John, Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick. Before we had left on our trip and I had read up on each port and it seemed to me that St. John was not going to offer much in the way of history, I was very wrong, this town provided a walking map with three different historic walks. There was the Loyalist trail, the Victorian stroll, and the Prince William walk. This town was founded by ...

      ... one last hiccup before we reached the theatre. Having come out of the subway, we weren’t sure whether to turn left or right, thankfully a lovely New Yorker took pity on us and pointed us in the right direction. The show takes place in a dark room, with the dancers dressed in light suits that have neon lights attached to them. The lights turn on and off depending on what is happening – in one scene, a character was split in half, so using the lights ...
