The Gilded Lily is everything you want from a B&B. The only thing it does not have is the breakfast in the morning. The rooms are outstanding. One word to describe this place is "BEAUTIFUL"! The Gilded Lily is located in a residential area, that looks like it's out of a movie. We stayed in the Parlor Room on the 2nd floor facing the street. The street was very quite and was picturesque. The B&B is in the middle of everything. You can walk or take a cab anywhere in Boston. We would stay again if we were in the area. The Innkeeper is proud of his city and was very helpful in giving ideas of were to go to eat and places to see.
