“Sumptuous traditional New England hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

The Eliot is a super charming, traditional style hotel with a genuine Bostonian doorman and fantastic homely decor. The suite we stayed in was incredibly reasonably priced: and absolutely enormous! It's a little trek to the more touristy parts of town, but worth it. Particularly as the walk down Commonwealth is so beautiful. I only wish we'd eaten at the restaurant too!

Stayed April 2013, travelled as a couple

We stayed at the Eliot Hotel because we were attending the wedding of a good friend. Navigating Boston was a bit difficult but we did manage to find the hotel. Check in was efficient and our suite was most welcoming. Newbury Street was right around the corner, so we were able to walk and have our choice of restaurants to choose from for lunch. Great location, comfy beds and valet parking made this a most pleasurable experience.

Room Tip: The higher floors have a great view of Fenway Park.

A little surprise for my boyfriend a night out in the city. Cleo was also on my list of places to go. Since I had stayed prior I know which room I wanted, however I got check into a room facing Mass Ave (BEST ROOM!!). I can now only ask for that room type. We also made our way down to Cleo for drinks and in my last posting I wrote about the bartender who was still up to his amazing tricks.

Room Tip: Ask for a city view close to Mass Ave

Our family has stayed here twice. Wonderful location, surprisingly reasonable prices. The rooms are great and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. We'll stay there again when we're back in Boston overnight.

This hotel is a gem! It's full of beautiful art and such elegant yet chic decor that will definitely elevate the vibe of any business trip or family getaway. The Clio restaurant was delicious and the chef held back nothing when it came to the 7 course New Years menu. The drinks were amazing make sure you get the Todd Collins!! It's very close to shopping and the staff takes the extra step to make sure your stay here is wonderful!! Would stay again!!!

The Eliot Hotel is a charming hotel with an old world feel and all the modern amenities you need.
We traveled with young children and it suited each of us perfectly. We have a reason to go back to Boston for the Eliot alone!
