The Eliot Hotel, Boston
Wonderful, small hotel with a European flavor. Stunning, sophisticated room decor. Could have stayed forever. Highly recommend for location, comfort and service. Only wished that I could have stayed longer.

The Eliot Hotel, Boston
Nice weekend stay early spring
Very comfortable bed and excellent service. Bummed that the restaurant was closed for a private event (we were hoping for sushi). Great location and easy to walk to watch crew races on the Charles, the MFA and more. Did not try the health club or any meals in the hotel. A bit slow on the valet parking car retrieval! Very friendly and helpful staff.

Old World Charm New World Comfort
Wonderful, helpful, gracious staff from the moment I stepped out of our car. I loved the feeling of the hotel; and the location in Boston is incredible. Our room was lovely-roomy suite, lots of room to spread out and be comfortable. Room service was impeccable.
