We drove to Boston so parking was a bit of a problem. You have to park in a parking station about a 10 minute walk away. The hotel is on a busy road so there was no available parking spaces in any block near the hotel, let alone in front of the hotel and you can't double park to drop...

I took this hotel on a recommendation via the Tripadvisor forum. The stay was booked a few months ago, just before the credit crisis was in full blown mode, so at the time I thought my successful bartering of a $15 discount on a queen room was a coup. Maybe the way things are $149 a night might get you...

The Charlesmark is a fresh, funky little boutique hotel in a fabulous location. Easy walk to Boston Common and the Prudential Centre. Although my room was small, it was cosy (perfect on a snowy stay in Boston), had nice lighting, comfy bed, modern furnishings, a CD stacker and piped music!! The bar / lounge downstairs is trendy and has free...

Small room (despite higher price) but very well designed and with large bathroom. Self service breakfast boring and hardly worth bothering with. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Great situation in Copley Square with excellent access to T (underground) but view of airconditioning units not great.

We stayed at the Charlesmark for 3 nights, thanks to Trip Advisor reviews. Really loved this hotel - lovely decor, fantastic location on Boyleston (at Copley), really nice bar area and free internet in the lobby. Nice food next door - Bangkok Blue - and there are lots of other bars and restaurants nearby. Walking distance to all the sights...

My husband and I had a pleasant stay at the Charlesmark. It is excellent value for money and the staff were helpful and friendly. There are several good restaurants nearby and the discounted rate on parking is very handy! The rooms are small even by European standards but they are confortable and well designed. We needed our laundry done during...

I've just come back from a 4 night stay at the Charlesmark and I wasn't too impressed. The location is great and its ok value for money. It was also good to have internet access and lots of movies. However the bedrooms are pretty small and the beds are tiny. They are so short and narrow it wasn't very comfortable...

Boston seems to be a city where hotels are shockingly expensive, so the Charlesmark represented good value for a hotel which was in walking distance of all the major sites. Clean efficient, friendly, well-designed, and serving a welcome buffet breakfast, this was a good choice for us.

We have just returned from a week's holiday in Boston and stayed at the Charlesmark throughout. Having read the reviews on here we requested a Queen room on the 6th floor. This was perfect for our needs, we overlooked the Boston Public Library and the marathon finishing line. There was no noticeable noise and we were certainly not disturbed by...

Let's first dispense with the only neg: yes, the rooms are small. But this is a small building and the spaces were very cleverly distributed. It was not uncomfortable at all. Room size is sufficient to crash after walking the city and they are fairly new, well decorated, very clean and I didn't experience any noise problems. Now with the...

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
