Clarendon Square Inn
Ranked #3 of 37 Boston B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 August 2014

We have 3 nights at Clarendon Square Inn in August 2014. This is a wonderful guest house, beautifully restored and designed. The staff are friendly and helpful and our bed was extremely comfortable. There's a hot tub on the roof which, although needing a clean, was hot and relaxing whilst we enjoyed the views across the Boston suburbs. The local area, South Bay, is a very pleasant neighbourhood, with many great restaurants within short walking distance and the walk into the centre of Boston only takes about half an hour. I would highly recommend this guest house.

My husband and I stayed there one weeknight. The staff was actively helpful; they recommended restaurants based on what we said, and tried to make reservations, but the restaurant was full.

From the fresh ladyfingers and hibiscus tea (both delicious), to the location (close to restaurants museum and park) to the personnel, the breakfast, conversation, amenities, it was perfect.
Even the well-done book about the hotel was great; we knew who everyone was by their picture.
Next time in Boston I imagine we'll stay here again.

I've stayed here for several times now and was always happy to book again. It's just like, or even better than, the pictures on their website. It's a grand house with a homely feel to it. There's no elevator but even with my super heavy luggage they helped get everything upstairs with a smile. We enjoyed having breakfast on the deck and loved the original combinations of icetea and cookies in the afternoon. Lots of nice restaurants nearby and great reccommendations. We really hope to come back!

We arrived very late following a flight from the UK and then the the immigration process. We knew that there would be no one to greet us as there is no one on duty after 6pm. There was no note indicating where our room was (we found the "post it" note on the bedroom door). It would also have been nice to have a cup of tea or coffee. There is a small kitchen area used at breakfast time. It would have been so much appreciated to have been "invited" to make ourselves something. The bedroom was large and to the front of the building with a very comfortable bed. Plenty of hanging space etc and the bathroom area was good. The lighting and the air conditioning took time to work out how they operated. The B&B is ideal for central Boston with one of the main areas just a 15 minute walk. Located in a lovely, leafy peaceful part of Boston the Clarendon Square Inn is in a good area and there is outside seating and a hot tub on the roof.

Room Tip: If you are going to arrive after 6pm, ask them to let you know where you will find your room! Also...

I surprised my husband for his 40th birthday with a trip to Boston. The Clarendon Square Inn is one of the nicest B & B's we have ever stayed in. The decor is modern and clean, the staff was helpful at recommending things to do and places to go and the rooftop view was an added bonus! (Free Wifi, included breakfast, and quaint neighborhood were also a plus!!) Even with construction going on next door and 63 stairs to our room (the highest level of the building), I would still give it 5 stars. We will definitely stay here again if in Boston! Thank you....

Room Tip: We had a beautiful room if you don't mind climbing to the top floor. :) Good exercise...

Very nice place and close to some great restaurants. Laura and Jasmine were both very helpful. Breakfast choices were healthy and excellent. The only downside was we couldn't find our room initially as the doors (at least not the basement room) didn't have a number. Even with that little hiccup, the place still deserved a 5!

This is a nice B&B with nice design on the whole, the rooms are big and the beds are amazingly comfortable (One of the best I have ever slept in) the Wifi is fast and the TV has a good choice of channels. The Breakfast was also good. My only criticism would be that I found the room warm the Air-conditioning is remotely managed so you have to phone the host up to change the aircon I found this very odd in a B&B of this quality. A heads up if you struggle with Stairs then this is not the place for you. If you after a good quality B&B in the south end this is a good option.

Dear Elliotbows, We are happy you enjoyed our comfortable beds and breakfast. After an amazing sleep experience, certainly strong and professional WiFi is next on the list of priorities. As you have found, ours it top notch. Indeed, we are fortunate to have large guest rooms in our historic townhouse. Alas, we have the best AC system available for placement in a historically registered building. You may not know that we are keeping up with technology and can control the property temperature directly from our cell phone platform.... so, please do not hesitate to ask us to make adjustments. Additionally, most all of our rooms have ceiling fans to give some direct control of temperature. Certainly, your comfort is our top priority. We hope that you will come and see us again... Stephen Gross
