The location is top notch and the skeleton staff were beyond helpful.
Major reconstruction going on that I didn't know about. May have stayed somewhere else, had I known.
We have been going to the Taj Boston for our anniversary for 9 years. This year we brought our children ages 6 and 3. The location is wonderful and the attention to detail was outstanding. We highly recommend the Taj Boston and we will be coming back year after year. It's a family tradition we all look forward to.
Amazing location and helpful staff. Excellent quality complimentary continental breakfast during renovations.
Renovations were being performed during our stay, but otherwise a great experience.
The staff was incredible, with service that you would expect from a luxury hotel in such a central and scenic location. The hotel is right on the Boston Gardens side of the Boston Commons, with Newbury just around the corner. Unusually for such a downtown location, parking is practically next door and ample thanks to the public parking under the common.
While many of the amenities of the hotel room are upgraded and modern, it's certainly clear that you're in a hotel built in the previous century. The hotel is currently undergoing a renovation, so I expect that visitors in a year or so from now may find this quite improved.
Location and staff
hotel has lack of services due to renovation period.. existing rooms are really old and old-fashioned + bathroom is disaster for such quality hotel.. Fortunately they are under renovation..
