I had a great stay at the Clarendon Inn. The space is charming and conveniently located on a quiet street in a very walkable area - not far from Newbury Street, Beacon Hill, and lots of fun spots in the South End. I didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised by my stay there - our room was spacious and clean (as was the whole facility) and it was fun to eat breakfast in the communal dining area. The staff could not have been friendlier or more willing to offer recommendations for our trip.

We had a fabulous stay at Clarendon Square. The Inn is well located near fun shops and restaurants. We were welcomed "home" (for that's how it felt) each afternoon where delicious pastries and beverage awaited us. The rooftop is fabulous- full view of this wonderful city and the hot tub is a great addition. But it's also just a terrific spot to relax and catch your breath. Breakfast was a treat- fabulous pastries and fruit and more...which we enjoyed outside in their lovely garden. Although the Inn was full, we felt as though we had the Inn to ourselves. Salvadore, the manager, was warm, welcoming and very helpful. We enjoyed chatting with him and his personal attention was most appreciated. We were drawn to the Inn by the location and the outstanding reviews, and I'd say our experience exceeded high expectations. We look forward to returning to Clarendon Square.

We loved the Clarendon! It's in a picturesque neighborhood,it's beautifully furnished, the view from the rooftop is magnificent at night. Our room was very comfortable, and the expanded continental breakfast was excellent.
Salvador was a perfect host: friendly, courteous, and spot on with his suggestion that we not attempt to walk to Fenway to attend a Redsox game.
I wish my house looked and ran like the Clarendon. We will be back!

Great location with many restaurants within walking distance. A step back in time with brick sidewalks and beautiful brownstones everywhere. Perfect bridge of elegance and comfort throughout the building. The roof deck is amazing. We stayed in the suite for just one night and hated to leave. We were greeted at the door with cool ice tea and cookies on a very hot Boston afternoon when checking in and it was all up hill from there. Beautiful breakfast buffet with options to sit outside , the dining room or in the upstairs living room. Not like some B&B's with a forced and sometimes awkward sit down breakfast with strangers that you cannot politely escape from. No escapes were needed here! Will be back our next trip and plan to stay longer.

Room Tip: The suite on top floor was great.

We wanted to stay in a brownstone and also be out of the immediate city centre. The Clarendon is perfect on both counts. The property is lovely and very well maintained. We used the spa twice and had it to ourselves on both occasions.

We had a room that meant carrying bags up and down 4 flights of stairs. Fine for us but others might want to be clear about that when considering booking.

The B&B experience is not for everyone but we were perfectly happy with the breakfast and being able to eat outside was great. The location was ideal for lovely local restaurants and strolling the pretty streets. We walked everywhere in Boston ( including to Harvard!) from the Inn and really enjoyed that.

The staff were all helpful and quick to resolve any questions. It seemed a lot of the big hotels in the centre had scaffolding up so we were even more relieved to be staying somewhere so peaceful.
