"A Collegiate Environment"
It was clean and very quite. A normal conversation over the phone with my wife elicited a soft knock on the wall at 10:30pm to indicate that I was disturbing my neighbor. Then I realized I could clearly hear every movement that person made in their sleep. No television--fantastic! and I would imagine that music would also be out, except with earphones, […] even though there is a CD player in the room. It was a roomy space, about the size of an apartment. If one wants to read, write, study or sleep, it is highly recommended. If you want to have a conversation in your room after 9pm, not the place for you. Nearly perfect for me. I was able to read and go to sleep without distraction.

I take the subway blue line then green line and get off in Alington st from airport. With short walking distance to the club. Poblic Garden and Boston Comm are in a few minutes. Upscale shopping area also in a block away. My room is in the back of the building, furniture is sort old but function will, shared bathroom are nice. If you are only getting […] the places in down town area, this club with reasonable rate, breakfast, convience to public transportation, I would highly recommand to anyone just need a room to stay overnight and a good breakfast before you go on.

"A Nice Break From Generic Hotels"
Overall I enjoyed my stay. The room was huge and nicely furnished. It is in a great area of Boston. The staff seemed nice enough but the guests seemed seemed to be all a bunch of Miss Hathaways from The Beverly Hillbillys except not quite as nice. I was in the breakfast room alone when a young lady entered and upon given a nice hello I was greeted with […] a cold stare. 5 more ladies entered over the next 20 minutes- none of them saying a word to anyone. I thought that was a bit strange. I felt like an outsider. The public rooms are roped off for private events so it's either your room or the breakfast room. The rooms are very quiet. The whole place is very quiet so when I watched a movie on my I Pad I was inclined to keep it very low. Overall I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The accommodations and the location were wonderful. Imagine yourself in the 19th century visiting your wealthy grandmother. The brownstone townhouse has 16 foot ceilings, antiques, elegant mahogany staircase and exquisite small pieces arranged beautifully. I felt as I was in some 19th century time-warp and it was lovely. The staff were so kind and the […] tea-room was cozy. It was a unique combination of coziness and luxury. I highly recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"High Victorian stay in the Back Bay!"
beautiful High Victorian atmosphere- very accomodating staff- lovely breakfast. Only issue is that there is no staff during night and we needed more towels and were unable to get them. Great location- everything was lovely!Genuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful accommodation and friendly staff who remember your name.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Elegant alternative to pricier hotels"
Lovely, Victorian elegance in a fabulous location at an astonishingly low price. If you have no need for TV, room service, or other hotel amenities, this is a wonderful alternative to pricier hotels. I will stay here whenever I am in Boston.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel for the Quiet Hearted Reader."
An island of gracious calm from a bygone era. The atmosphere was clean and comfortable, akin to visiting the mansion of an elderly aunt but two blocks from the heart of Boston. No television in the rooms was refreshing. Books and magazines available in rooms and dining room. Lovely continental breakfast included with room. All in all, met my needs […] beautifully.

"quirky but good quirky"
what a charming old style quirky place - very personal - wonderful. One of a kind. Not for everybody though. You have to appreciate this style and treatment.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Back Bay option"
Overall a good stay... my 3rd there in the past 6 months. Would have stayed another time but they didn't have a room for my dates. If you are looking for simple accommodations in a great location, it's worth trying. My pet peeve is persistently bad internet service (true for all 3 visits). Office staff said they are improving bandwidth, so this may […] not be a problem in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great value great location"
I would recommend this hotel for business or personal travel. Nice facilities with a clean though dated bathroom and fabulous location near Public Garden.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"location, location, location"
the room pictured on the sight was not the room we stayed in even though I was told it would be by two different people I talked to. The parking cost twice as much as I was quoted over the phone also by two different people.A fowl odor that came out of the bathroom sink bothered my wife but I really didn;t notice it much.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A gem in Boston"
This was a last minute find for my trip to Boston, and what a gem!! Clean rooms, cookies coffee and water all night long, great breakfast, good location, friendly staff, free wifi... It was just awesomeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Classy, quiet and comfortable"
The College Club of Boston is located on a quiet street in the Back Bay near the Public Gardens and Boston Common. The staff was very helpful (Daniel went out of his way to help me) , and my room was immaculate. The bed was comfortable and I slept well. This is a classy place, an old Victorian building which has been renovated and re-decorated. The […] continental breakfast was ample. If you arrive when the office is closed, you need a door code. Call to get it - or check your phone messages to get the College Club's message to you. The double rooms are huge. The twin room was small, but very adequate for me. Check their website for detailed driving/parking directions - very helpful. I loved my stay at the College Club of Boston, and hope to stay there again if I return to Boston.

"A great find"
This is a great B&B centrally located from all the attractions in Boston in the Back Bay. The stay was lovely with a very attentive staff. You are one block away from the public gardens and equally one block away from the trendy Newberry street. They take great care to keep you comfortable. They bake fresh cookies every day and you feel very at home. […] I loved it and hope to come back soon. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed the location and the room was historic. The price was the same as the Westin which had better accommodations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming hotel steeped in history,steps from Garde"
This Back Bay townhouse turned bed and breakfast has charming rooms. The twin bed and shared bathroom work fine, especially for the price (there is a larger hotel room option with private bath also available). There are only two rooms per floor sharing the bathroom down the corridor. While there is no TV, Wifi works great, and the clock radio that also […] played music DVDs as well as the bookcase of older books added to the room's charm. The continental breakfast spread in the breakfast room was superb. The building is imbued with history: the College Club of Boston was founded in 1890 by a group of college-educated women, and its current membership boasts a roster of many impressive, prominent local women, whose photos line the stairway, giving inspiration. And who could not appreciate their philanthropic work in supporting a scholarship fund for Boston public school students! I bought their cook book supporting these efforts as well. The College Club is also just a block away from the beautiful Boston Gardens and the Boston Commons beyond that and only a few minutes away from the Arlington T stop on the Green line. Just a wonderful find! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"love these beautiful rooms!"
We loved staying at the College Club of Boston. We would stay there again,but would inquire about any events going on ( such as a very loud wedding on Saturday night). I would advise the CC to add that possibility on their website. We were unable to have a quiet evening or sleep. It is a lovely venue for an event, but CC should control noise level , […] areas wedding guests may use , and hours of the event so the hotel guests may enjoy their time there.

"The perfect spot"
I believe that choosing The College Club of Boston for my stay was an excellent decision because not only is it perfectly situated for getting around, but the building is a landmark, located on one of Boston's most prestigious avenues. The rooms are beautifully restored; redecorated by local interior designers, and the atmosphere laid back and peaceful. […] It is a lovely place to stay surrounding guests with charm and character, steeped in the history of years gone by, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Unique, cheap and perfect location"
I had a blast staying in this unique, lovely and comfortable B&B. I stayed in one of the singles with a shared bathroom (the Oberlin room, 216), and it reminded me of a fantasy Ivy League single dorm room. The breakfast room and breakfast itself were basic/fine, but the round-the-clock availability of free coffee, tea and cookies were awesome! The place […] had an overall "self-serve" feeling, which was fine by me -- no one showed me to my room or explained where anything was, for example, but this wasn't really a problem. The price couldn't have been better, either, based on the comfort, cleanliness, uniqueness and PERFECT location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Gorgeous boutique hotel.My college search favorite"
We needed a place to stay between looking at colleges. We'd traveled a week at lots of hotels and B&Bs. This was by far our favorite. It's gorgeous, stately, quite and very comfortable. The location could not have been more perfect. We had ample shopping ,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Outstanding Back Bay option"
If you're tired of hotels that all feel the same, try sleeping in an 1800s bedroom in the heart of Back Bay. Great location, very accommodating staff.... definitely a return location for me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very cute little place. I picked this place because I was able to get the one person room with the shared bathroom which is about the least expensive room you can find in the city of Boston. But it also is in just a fantastic area of the city. It's in walking distance of pretty much everything you will want to see in Boston with Fenway not far to the […] west and Boston Common just a couple blocks east. Safe neighborhood and clean inside room also. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"FYI: it's really a women's college club"
I relied on the hotels.com description, and should have googled the hotel first. The College Club of Boston is an old women College Club. Technically it is open to both genders, but as a guy in my early 30s in town for business I was not fully comfortable in this place. I feel like kept getting looks from some guests. Minor annoyances: The man at the […] reception was not interested in talking to me or providing me advice (barely removed his headphones to talk to me), there was no iron/board in my room (I had to go to the staff laundry room), the breakfast was dissapointing for a B&B, the rooms are beautiful for the style but my window A/C unit was really loud and worked intermittently. On the plus side, the internet was fast, the place had its charms, and the location was perfect. Yet, I don't think I'd rebook this place if I were in the same situation.

"will go back again"
Lots of charm in my historical room, large and nice bathroom. Very peaceful. Nice neighborhood. Really a pleasing, different hotel experience, I'll go back to that same place in my next Boston trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
I loved the location of the College Club which was a lovely walk from the Hynes Conference Center. The main drawback was the lack of an en suite toilet and shower. The staff members were all very helpful and friendly. I would stay there again but opt for a room with en suite toilet and shower.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hoterl in Boston"
very good location, good hotel if travel without children. Front desk hours until 5 or 6 pm, better to check in earlier or call hotel in advance to enter in code or you will have to wait for someone to buzz you in. I would stay there again good price and location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This B&B is absolutely charming. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, and the rooms and common areas are filled with period furniture with character. Great for those who appreciate this kind of stuff and being in what I think is the most beautiful neighborhood and street in Boston.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice B&B, great location about a block from Boston Commons, Cheers, and a 10 minute walk to Chinatown. But, would have liked to have a TV in the room and a hot breakfast, sinjcethey have a full service kitchen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"the College Club of Boston- full of atmosphere"
Our room was very large and quiet with fire place and bookcases and had a comfortable bed and pillows .It overlooked the large trees with fairy lights that ran the length of the street .Don't expect slick and modern,but warm and cozy with loads of atmosphere .With the lovely shops of Newbury street around the corner and the park and train station a […] 5 minute walk down the beautiful wide street we found the location to be great.The staff were friendly and helped us with any questions we had.We would happily stay here again. We would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok to stay for location."
The B&B is cute but the price didn't justify the services offered. Breakfast is very standard, which at a B&B we would have expected something a little more out of the ordinary. It is ok if you would like to be in a good location, but I probably wouldn't book there again. You might like it for what it is, our standards might just be a little high coming […] from a hospitality background and knowing what to expect. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice Neighborhood, interesting place to see!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was delighted to stay at the College Club. I wish I had more than 1 night! There are 11 rooms in this row house, each designed by a different local designer in honor of historical colleges in the area. It had a wonderful homey, old fashioned atmosphere. This is a place for people looking for charm.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The College Club of Boston"
The hotel was great - like a B&B. Small without a lot of services (no fitness center), but everything that you need. Our only issue was the day our room was not cleaned, but since we do not change our bedding at home every day it was not a big issue just a surprise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The College Club of Boston"
My daughter and I stayed 2 nights while visiting local Boston colleges. We had a double room with an in suite bathroom. The room and bathroom were very large and comfortable. Quite pretty and homey. Breakfast was included. No T.V which was fine because we were busy- but there was free internet service. Parking was a hassle. Location was great! Price […] was very good.

"Beautiful place, beautiful neighborhood"
My room was very clean and comfortable. The CCB has been mostly renovated, and there's a nice coffeemaker in the dining area where you can get espresso, mocha, or regular coffee whenever you want. My room was pretty big, at least twice as large as the room I had at Irving House. However, the breakfast was mediocre. The neighborhood is beautiful, and […] the hotel is very close to the Arlington station, from where you could go practically anywhere with the metro. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"College Club is solid choice"
I stayed here for one night before meetings the next day in Cambridge. Central location was obvious and one reason I chose it, after price, but was very impressed with service. The staff called me before arriving to share the pass code to enter the building. The complimentary tea, coffee, and cookies was very nice in the evening. There wasn't a TV […] in my room but that was okay with me. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
no t.v.'s in the room but i wasn't there to watch t.v. there was free in room wi-fi to stay in touch and a free continental breakfast downstairs (with a t.v. if you had to watch something). 1 block to Boston Public Garden, 1 block to shopping on Newbury Street.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The College Club- now my first choice in Boston"
I had a few job interviews in Boston and as a student, I needed somewhere affordable that was near to the city center. The location was perfect and it was inexpensive, especially for the quality of service I received. Since I was arriving late at night, I called ahead and got the door code. My key was waiting for me. There was an excellent choice of […] cookies, coffees and yummy hot apple cider in the dining room. The room was very comfortable and the shared bathroom was beautiful. The staff was also very friendly! They held my bags, after I checked out, so I could explore the city a bit. Also, they printed off my bus ticket, as I had forgotten to before. I will definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is more a bed and breakfast culture as opposed to a hotel. I loved the location which was close to Boston Common and excellent shopping. There is no TV in the room, but there is Internet access and I had downloaded a movie to watch in the evening. Guests should know that they will access the hotel with a security code. This worked fine for me since […] I had an early check in. The hotel is very quiet and has wonderful character. I enjoyed the experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I couldn't of found a perfect location. My room was small but comfortable. It was decorated nicely; a little on the frilly side, made it feel more like a visit to Grandma's.
