If you've ever wondered what it might be like to live in a perfectly restored vintage Boston brownstone in a world of quiet far removed from the traditional contemporary urban hotel experience, this place is for you. The Gilded Lily is lovingly and thoughtfully maintained by its owner of some thirty years, who is available by phone should you need his assistance. James not only saw us parking and helped us carry our bags to the Parlor Room on the second floor, he also spent time citing several events happening in the vicinity and then later helped us in printing needed boarding passes for our flight home and even left them where we could pick them up on our way back into the building. The neighborhood itself is a marvel of the way urban America once was - safe, friendly and peacefully thriving. In short, book the Gilded Lily if you happen to be en route to Boston. You will not regret the decision and you will long savor the stay in your memory.
