Beacon Hill Hotel is in a great location in one of Bostons best neighborhoods. We walked every where we went without any trouble. The Hotel is small but delivers top notch service. Rooms are a little small, but are comfortable, besides with such a great city we spent very little time in the room. The rates at first seemed high, but Boston Hotels are very pricey and it turned out to be the cheapest rate of the Hotels we considered. Breakfast comes with your stay and it was 5 star made to order in the Bistro. Hint, do not bring a car to Boston you do not need one, there's no where to park, and if you do not know the city, driving here is not for the faint of heart.

Stayed in Room 202. Quite adequate. Great shower and towels. Internet Service was out. They worked really hard to get it back up and running. Oh well, Starbucks only a half a block up the street. Very charmiing hotel. The hotel staff and the wait staff were very accomodating. Nice third floor terrace for a late evening bottle of wine. They were wonderful. The rooms are clean. Great location. We've stayed all over the world. This hotel holds it's own. Our hats off to the Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro. Location is terrific. Just off Boston Commons. Accross from the trendy Upper Crust. Easy walking distance to everything. When the "touristy" food establishments were packed, we went back to the Beacon Hill and had a great meal (If you want a burger joint, this is not the place--We're talking Arugala/tangerine/mozzarella salad, etc.) Good wine selection. The bottom line, we'd stay there again. What a great neighborhood to wonder around in. And it is a wonderful neighborhood. We'll be back.

  • Liked — Fantastic staff, great loocation, very clean room.
  • Disliked — Early Am Boston Garbage pickup--not much you can do about that!

We stayed for one night on our way to Martha's Vineyard. We've been to Boston before so didn't feel the need to stay longer (had a fabulous meal at Bricco's in North End!). We stayed in one of the Queen rooms. The room wasn't that big but made good use of space (ironing board folds out from cupboard, LCD TV on wall) and most importantly was clean, although the carpet was beginning to show signs of age. The bathroom was spotless and well equipped (a real plus for my wife!). What we really loved was the character of the room. We've stayed at hotels twice the price and they are just modern and sterile. The downstairs bar was small and inviting with good range of wines, beers and spirits considering it's size. All the staff were helpful, courteous, efficient, and friendly (unfortunately often a rarity these days). Nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed our stay so much we are cutting our Vineyard trip by 1 day to return for a last night in Boston before returning to the UK.

We loved the location on Beacon Hill which is right in the middle of everything. The hotel is small and we got to know all the staff within the few days we were there. Benson (the manager) was very knowledgeable about the city and helped get us great restaurant reservations. The rooms are not big but we didn't care since we were there to walk around the city. The sitting room on the second floor and the third floor terrace gave us the extra space we needed to relax. The bar was great with many locals and Chelsea (the bartender) was fun to talk to. We would definitely stay here if we come back to Boston
