My partner and I stayed in Parlor Room 2 this past weekend on a pleasure trip to Boston. We selected The Gilded Lily as our home away from home based upon a good amount of research, including reading through the reviews on tripadvisor. Our experience was outstanding.
This is a beautiful and wonderfully appointed property in the lovely South End of Boston. The building's facade is pristine, and the interior is stylish and understatedly elegant. The freedom to wander by foot or take public transportation and be close to a wide variety of attractions and great restaurants is a plus. From the beautiful container of mini pumpkins that greeted us at the front door, to the tasty selection of continental breakfast items that we were welcome to enjoy on our schedule, it is clear to us that James takes pride in his property and cares about his guests. The N'oreaster this past Saturday evening kept us from exploring all that we wanted to that day, but hunkering down in our room was a real treat!
We had the pleasure of meeting James and his adorable dog, Sawyer, during our stay, and that made our trip all the nicer. We love Boston, we love The Gilded Lily, and we will, without a doubt, be back.
