My husband and I were in town for a quick visit to some friends, who suggested we stayed at the Beacon Inn. The hotel is an old and beautiful building where each guest is given a key, making you feel like it is home away from home. Free snack bar downstairs was great and the guys at the front desk were very helpful. Thank you!!!
If you enjoy your accommodation with a bit of history versus soleless hotel chains, do yourself a favour and book your stay here. Located Boston's lovely Back Bay srea, convenient to shops, restaurants and Boston Common. Quite simply the best value stay I've enjoyed for a long time.
My wife and I very much enjoyed our weekend stay. The room faced Edgerly Road and had a bay window. The breakfasts were great. The staff suggested that we visit the Boston Public Library. We took the daily tour, which was very informative. The proximity to the Boston Symphony was also important. Steve and Carmela, Concord, MA
Staying in Boston for a conference at Copley Square - so chic and unique, lovely breakfasts (I was up too early to enjoy) but challenging stairs if you have a heavy suitcase. I have stayed here previously five years ago and I shall stay here again On my next trip to Boston
For the price, I anticipated small rooms. Cozy but lovely, clean, wonderful. Very glad for the parking space. Easy walk to Symphony Hall and Museum of Fine Arts. Convenient to MIT. Breakfast was simple but good choices, three protein options. Web site mentioned a lounge or deck on every floor. Unfortunately, rather than leather arm chaired lounge in the photo, we had a deck . . . in January. Would have appreciated a second place to read.
Comfort & size of room, as well as closet & drawer space, was superior to any other lodging in the Concord area. Winter discount made the price very reasonable. We will definitely return here in future visits to the Concord area.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Parkside on Ellery. From the excellent, easy-to-follow directions for using (free) public transportation that David forwarded before my arrival in Boston to the good-sized room, furnished with antique furniture, to the warm welcome and excellent location, all aspects of my stay were very good. David is a very experienced host and has thought through all the details, including a clever system for ordering and delivering breakfast to each guestroom. Highly recommended.
I needed a place to stay for the Boston Women's March and found this place on Expedia - it was absolutely perfect. I had a small single room with a share bath and the share bath was immaculate (I never even saw anyone else use it!) will definitely stay again in the future - the location was terrific as well!
So with the terrific price, I was not anticipating a huge room, and was right. Adequate space, absolutely spotless and well maintained, desk guy ready to help. Parking was again tight but very grateful for a spot. Happy with breakfast, straightforward presentation, but three protein choices. Only disappointment was the website mentioned a lounge or deck on every floor, which we counted on for extra space. Oasis has decks, not so useful in the winter. Super location for our plans (BSO, MFA, and MIT), safe neighborhood.
My husband and I visited the Green Turtle for the second time on New Years weekend. We love to go during the off seasoning to enjoy the amazing views of the harbor. Short walk to many nice restaurants (and the North End), and the water taxi stops right out front. The room is lovely, warm and cozy. Karen and Jon couldn't be any nicer or more hospitable. The breakfast was delicious! We can't wait to go back!
We have stayed at Beacon Inn 1750 3 times now. It is always a pleasure to stay here thanks to the warm atmosphere and all of the reception staff. The hotel is close to a train station and the free coffee and tea in the lobby are nice after a long day downtown. Will be back soon.
We had a wonderful time staying at the Clarendon Square Bed and Breakfast. The property is beautiful and in a great historical location. The rooftop hot tub was a great way to relax after a long drive and the room was lovely. Thank you to the whole staff for a great few days.
Stayed here one night, in a single room. It was was marvelous and very pretty. The room was cozy, but I think the suites are way bigger. It was perfect for one, honestly. Free internet, which was great. Everything was wonderful, but the breakfast was about on par with a hotel that offered free continental breakfast, you know, mostly bagels, bread-stuffs, and the like. Although, to be fair, I did wake up a little late, so who knows if there had been better, hotter food earlier in the morning.
Never heard of this place, it was so nice, clean, unique. Fast, free internet. I got a single room, which was, like, smaller than it would be at regular hotel, but hey, you get to stay in an amazingly fancy, brownstone walkup, in the heart of Boston for less than $100. How can you beat that? Only complaint, if any, I was expecting a little more of a breakfast, but it was on par with an average hotel complementary breakfast. Maybe I was just late, that could of been possible, but I thought there would be a meal or something, but it was just like muffins and bagels. Still good.
If you have ever spent much time in Boston, you know the brown stone. Classic, elegant, beautiful, romantic. I used to love to walk around neighborhoods of brownstones, trying to imagine what it might be like to live there. Well, at the Clarendon Square Inn, my dreams came true. Ok, a bit over the top perhaps, but this Inn was a slice out of that world. The neighborhood was perfect! Walkable to everything touristy, but in an authentic South End neighborhood with shops and cafes and amazing restaurants literally around the corner. The rooms were large, clean, unique and comfortable. While the bathroom wasn't large, it was luxurious. Plush towels and bathrobes, deliciously scented soaps, and a double shower head. The roof top hot tub was a huge plus. We almost didn't use it, as the weather was about 20 degrees, but it was pleasantly warm in the hot tub and the view of the skyline was incredible! A must. A simple, but fresh breakfast; quiche, hard boiled eggs, home-made oatmeal, coffee and espresso, cereals, danishes, you get the idea. The inn keeper was friendly and helpful, making the place feel a bit more like home. Loved it!
This was an amazing experience. Better then any hotel I have stayed .The innkeeper (Melissa) was helpful and pleasant and always made sure we had what we needed. I can't wait to go back . Location and neighborhood A+ .
All of my expectations were exceeded from the moment we arrived. The room was much larger than I anticipated and small touches made it feel like home. Karen and John are friendly amd attentive- everything you could want from your hosts. I would recommend the Green Turtle to anyone who is looking to experience Boston and the surrounding areas in a new and exciting way, with the feel of home.
We stayed in the Green Turtle II for our honeymoon in November of 2016. Initially, we were worried that the boat wouldn't be warm enough in case of cold weather. Once we gave Karen and Jon a call, they assured us that the boat would be as warm as we wanted it to be. They were right! Although we had great weather for it being the second week of November, the boat will be as warm or as cold as you would like it to be! The boat was very clean and tidy while also offering the essential items you would need/want on a vacation like extra towels and breakfast essentials. I highly recommend this floating bed and breakfast for so many reasons!
Situata lungo la costa atlantica, alla confluenza tra due fiumi, edificata su di un gruppo di penisole collegate tra loro da ponti e gallerie, Boston è una delle città più estese, antiche e pittoresche degli Stati Uniti. Per la sua vastità e ricchezza di luoghi da scoprire, una decina di giorni in un Bed&Breakfast di Boston è il minimo indispensabile anche per assuefarsi al ritmo di una grande città americana.
Capitale del Massachusetts, le sue origini risalgono alle colonie inglesi, e oggi è una delle metropoli più vivaci e brillanti, intellettualmente e socialmente. Con la presenza del mare e le sue ampie aree verdi, è una città piacevole e rilassante da vivere, nonostante il caos tipico della grande metropoli, ricca di architettura antica e moderna, e particolarmente adatta per chi predilige muoversi a piedi.
La bellezza di Boston si rivela soprattutto in primavera, quando il Public Garden e il Boston Common, il parco più vecchio degli Stati Uniti, tornano a fiorire e ad accogliere i visitatori in cerca di uno spazio verde dove passeggiare liberamente. Dal Boston Common parte anche il Freedom Rail, un percorso di cinque chilometri lungo il quale si congiungono i luoghi più significativi della città, tra cui la State House, in stile neoclassico, dove ha sede il governo del Massachusetts, la Old State House, l’edificio più antico di Boston, la Old North Church settecentesca, e il Bunker Hill Monument, l’obelisco in ricordo della battaglia del 1775. Per gli appassionati dell’arte, Boston è sede del Museum of Fine Arts e dell’Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Nella baia, le Boston Harbour Islands, un parco nazionale diviso in 34 isolette, offrono la meta ideale per una gita appena fuori città.
Nel corso di tutto l’anno, a Boston non mancano mai gli eventi di grande importanza. Come la celebre maratona di New York, anche a Maratona di Boston è una delle maggiori nel mondo, e si svolge proprio nel Giorno dei Patrioti, in aprile, che celebra la battaglia del 1775. In Marzo, San Patrizio regala giorni e notti di follia, e in settembre il Boston Arts Festival trasforma il Waterfront Park in un grande mercato dell’arte.
Nella gastronomia locale, primeggia l’aragosta, il simbolo di Boston. La città, a dispetto di quel che si dica della cucina americana, vanta comunque una tradizione enogastronomica di grande rilievo, che include e rielabora i piatti della cucina internazionale, dall’estremo Oriente alla Francia.
L’inverno a Boston è piuttosto freddo, e il periodo migliore per visitarla parte dalla primavera inoltrata fino all’autunno, poiché in estate, sebbene sia spesso molto calda, la presenza del mare rende gradevole la temperatura.
