We were staying at the Newbury during the Boston Marathon. The staff looked after the guests, making sure food was brought in, since we couldn't leave due to the lockdown. The rooms are clean, with minimal noise, even on this busy street lined with shops and restaurants. One street over from Copley Square, and all marathon events. Pricey, but no more so than comparable places during the marathon. Convenient to everything except airport and train station, but the T is only a few blocks.

Room Tip: We liked our third floor room, with its great view of Newbury Street. Even with the window open and...

Have just returned from a ten day stay in Boston - exhausted but happy! The Newbury is a great little hotel in an ideal location for exploring the city and is easily accessible by public transport (the T), saving on costly transfer fees from and to airport. The room we were given was large, clean and comfortable. Newbury Street has many restaurants and so is lively and loud of an evening, however by about 10:30/ 11:00 pm, when everyone has finished eating, the general hubbub dies down and we certainly were never bothered by noise despite being in a room at the front of the hotel.

Great hotel in a perfect location. Newbury is a great street full of shopping and restaurants. We found the restaurants in the Back Bay district to be a little touristy. But there are really great dinner opportunities at South End, just a short cap ride away. The breakfast was really good, above our expectations. The location is great and you can walk to many of the attractions in the Boston area. We walked all the way up to Harvard and even though Bostonians found that to be remarkable, we found it to be a quite scenic 50 minutes stroll.

Couldn't have a better location in all Boston. Right in the middle of Newbury street . Very clean, comfortable accomodation. Added benefit of complimentary breakfast which was freshly cooked . Couldn't fault our stay

Having spent 3 days in the hustle and bustle of NYC it was refreshing to stay in Newbury Street with its much more relaxed atmosphere. Having a room overlooking the street and directly above a restaurant I did worry about noise but the receptionist assured me this would not be a problem and over our 3 night stay it wasn't. The rooms are a good size and are clean and comfortable and the breakfast in the adjoining Creperie was good. The location is perfect, both for exploring Newbury St and the Back Bay area, but also for exploring further afield. There are plenty of restaurants in the vicinity and we chose to stay on Newbury Street to eat on all 3 nights. When we visit Boston in future we will definitely want to stay here and highly recommend it.

The location of the hotel was fantastic. Newbury street is beautiful, littered with small, boutique, privately owned shops. The hotel itself was fine but after reading reviews on various sites I expected a little more. The staff were polite and professional but I didn't feel like I'd walked into a family ran guesthouse somehow. I was surprised that they didn't have coffee making facilities in the room too although you could usually get some from the reception area. Nothing too bad but nothing to make me love it either!

What a fantastic place. Clean,neat,comfortable,friendly, centrally located. Nice morning breakfast. Stayed here to see Boston and could not have found a better place! Close to trolley(couple of blocks) which we used to get all over city to see sites. While on trolley driver pointed out places of interest and all were funny and informative.

Room Tip: We stayed in a bay window king looking out on Newbury street. We could hear the night life outside...
