I have just returned from a four night stay at the Charlesmark due to a business conference in Boston. I had done a lot of cheking prior to making a reservation because it is a pretty expensive town in which to stay, and even the "conference rates" for other hotels were out of my limited budget. Then I discovered the...

My wife and I have just returned from Boston where we stayed at the Charlesmark Hotel for 5 nights. The Location of the Hotel could not be better only a short walk or subway ride to all the major attractions. The rooms although small where exceptionally clean and very comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. The bar was...

Returned today from three days at the Charlesmark. After the hotel in New York (Radio City Apartments), this was so much nicer. Free breakfast, coffee/tea and water all day, free internet access. The rooms are small but well equipped, beds very comfortable and everyone is so pleasant. We were the oldest people there, but didn't feel at all out of...

I spent three nights at the Charlesmark and agree with many of the previous reviewers: the location and price can't be beat. The main purpose of my trip to Boston was shopping, and the location of the Charlesmark in the Back Bay neighborhood, just a block off Newbury and close to Copley Place, was ideal. Additionally, the T stop just...

I enjoyed my stay at the Charlesmark. The staff were friendly and helpful, the bar interesting and lively. Some excellent features (for example, the free to use internet access) were a real boon. Of course, it was not perfect. I was travelling alone and had relatively little luggage but the rooms are not huge (a common issue in Boston hotels...

The hotel is located in the Back Bay area, almost right across the street from the Boston Public Library and about two blocks from the Prudential Center Shops. A block in the opposite direction from Copley Square and a stop to catch the "T" train. My room was located on the third floor, facing Boylston Street. Noticeably noisy throughout the...

Spent the weekend in Boston in mid-February. Check in was quick, then up to our room on the 5th floor, front of the building, looking across to the public library. Rooms were decorated nicely, mood music playing. The view at night was nice as well. Getting to the hotel was easy, parked out front to register, then just a few...

I was in town for a conference and all of the conference hotels were booked- since I used to live in Boston, I remembered the Charlesmark and was very pleased to not only find that they had rooms available, but to find out that their room rates were almost $100 less than the other area hotels!! We arrived early in...

Do not stay at the Charlesmark Hotel if you are NOT a fan of impeccable service, an unbeatable atmosphere, great interior design, surround sound XM radio throughout your room, incredibly convenient location, and an ultra-chic lounge that also manages to be lots of fun at the same time. This hotel has thought of everything, from satellite radio in your bathroom,...

Upon arrival at the check-in desk I was told to move my luggage to the bar area and wait. Five minutes later, the receptionist, a young latino, told me he was ready. He checked me in, and told me my room was on the 1st floor (a euphemism for the basement). I took the elevator to the basement and found...

Get the Truth then go! This reviewer is mean spirited, prejudice and not truthful: Here is the truth: This older man in a bad mood arrived 3 hours before check in time. He was completely aware that his room was first located on the first floor with out a great view. After going out of our way to get him...

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.
