Boston: Where everybody knows your name

Making your way in the world today takes everything you got. But arriving in a place like Boston gives it all right back. After a fun 11 hour road trip with Conchur we arrived in Boston with no idea where to go or where to stay we got lucky and landed bang smack in the middle of the action, on Boylston street. 5 bars in two and a half hours within …

Hey Guys,

So I was finally in the city I had wanted to visit for years, Boston. Since I got in quite late the night before I pretty much went to sleep as I couldn't be bothered to do anything else. The next morning I woke up refreshed and ready to hit the town and see some cool things on my way.

My itinerary for today was pretty …

... creates a little white tornado. Sitting inside sipping my hot chocolate and admiring this spectacle outside is one way to spend your Tuesday night! For the past week the weather has been really different every day. It was mostly sunny towards the weekend, followed by a lot of snowfall on Friday night, which transformed campus into a beautiful and mysterious place that has been referred to as Hogwarts, Harry Potter's school of magic, multiple times now (see picture). It got ...

Boston Children's Hospital day 2 and NBA game

... position where I had been purchasing them at other games I had seen as despite so many people following sport here the tickets remain expensive. The game was great and it was extremely close with all the usual American flamboyance and entertainment. In addition to the usual national anthem, cheerleading, timeout entertainment, spectator cameras and competitions they awarded the 'hero walking among us' trophy to a guy who had resuscitated his friend using a community placed ...

... was lovely and the lady most engaging, and breakfast was fresh and home made a most pleasant change from the manufactured food we have had at all previous hotels. For such a small town the place, especial the road traffic, is very busy. Just can't imaging what it would be like in winter during the ski season. Were hoping to see ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews John Jeffries House Boston

    Family Gathering

    from

    Just returned from my Honeymoon. I got married in Boston where my wife is from. Her family recommended the John Jeffries House from previous stays. Great location,very pleasant and clean. My family felt "very at home" there.

    Most Excellent Location

    from

    When we closed the storm windows in our room, it was as quiet as a church. Yet we were at an excellent location, on beautiful Charles Street at the base of beautiful Beacon Hill. The staff was generally friendly. The only drawbacks were the difficult accessibility ( we had to circle the block twice before we figured we had to drive through the construction area), and the pricey parking down the street (be sure to call ahead when you want your car.) I would suggest park your car when you check in and use taxis, tour buses (the green and orange ones, NOT the white buses) or your feet to explore this beautiful city of Boston.

    RUN FAST, DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT

    from

    Convenient to Mass. General T stop, not good! It's a hospital next to the hotel, sirens all day and night. Located next to Charles street, not good again, lots of bars and street noise! Walk in and look carefully, water stains on the ceilings every where. Room quality about the same as a prison, run down deteriorated furniture, dirty carpets, paint coming off the walls, please spend some money on this place. And the maid patrol, (9:00 AM banging around the halls as load as can be). Spoke to Vincent, the manager, asked for a clearer, quieter room, his answer - he could do nothing but thanked me for the information. My advise, find another place! The ymca would be an up grade.

    The only place in Boston we stay.

    from

    We have stayed at the John Jeffries three times, the most recent being April 2004. We found this jewel of a place through recommendations of Bostonians.

    The prices are very affordable by Boston standards. Our comfortable junior suite (which is actually not a suite but a large room) overlooking the Charles River had a kitchenette.

    It is located at the end of Beacon Hill and has a T stop at its door. It's walking distance to Faneuil Hall, the Fleet Center, and Boston Common. Skip the continental breakfast-there's a market around the corner to load up your kitchette with breakfast provisions.

    A great place to stay in Boston

    from

    We stayed at the John Jeffries House for 5 nights in August 2004. I have stayed in many citycentre hotels but this one must rank with the best (including some rated 4/5 stars!)! During the heat wave the A/C worked (quietly) and the room was totally sound proofed from the outside traffic. The location is ideal being just outside downtown Boston but only 15 minutes' walk away. Nearby are several reasonably restaurants. The staff were most helpful and cordial. We would certainly stay there again.

    We'll be back

    from

    My family, sons ages 14 and 11- husband-me, loved John Jeffries House. We stayed for three nights and fortunately by the time we arrived on the 15th, the air conditioning was working quite well.

    Quite a few problems

    from

    We absolutely loved the location. But we had a few troubles. The first night we returned to the hotel and were unable to get in. You have to buzzed in and no one was at the desk, for at least 5 minutes. Actually another guest let us in. The 2nd day, we noticed it was really warm, so we called the front desk. They said that the AC was not working and they could not get anyone to fix it until Monday!(This was on Saturday) We were very frustrated by the lack of communication and concern with this problem. We did get $10 off our bill, but we will

    not be returning!

    Great location, informal and friendly

    from

    Chose the John Jeffries on Lonely Planet recommendation and was not disappointed. Great location next to the Charles MGH T station and right by the Charles River for that early morning walk. Landed at Boston Logan Airport and 30 minutes after clearing customs and using a combination of airport bus and T and the grand sum of 1 dollar was at the hotel. Taxi from JJ to airport was US$15 + tip. Very friendly staff and nice informal atmosphere. Single cost me US$100 a night inc taxes.

    A good deal (but a bit chilly)

    from

    The John Jeffries house is a fabulous deal with a great central location. The red line of the T is right out the front door, which makes for easy getting around. The staff is both friendly and accommodating. Some of the rooms however, can be quite noisy due to the traffic of charles circle outside - so I recommend asking for a room off the road. Also, we stayed in late May and were quite surprised by the unusually cold weather (read highs in the 40s) and even more surprised that the John Jeffries house had "turned off their heat for the season". I now live in Boston and apartment complexes are required to provide heat from september through june - the same ought to be true for hotels. Overall a good stay - and economical at that!

    John Jeffries House: right place in the right place

    from

    My wife and I were delighted with John Jeffries House. The location is perfect - on Charles Circle with the MTA immediately available and interesting Charles Street leading down to Boston Common. The area is historic and beautiful.The hotel is excellent for the price. My one slight complaint was that the continental breakfast (included) was very ordinary. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was fine.I had worried about noise from busy Charles Circle, but even though we had a room facing the road, we never heard traffic.Highly recommended if you want a comfortable place with an excellent location for a reasonable price.
