Charlesmark Hotel
Ranked #66 of 84 Hotels in Boston
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Can't beat this location in Boston as it is in walking distance of a lot of great food and bars and the T is nearby. The rooms are on the small side, but the value makes it perfect for a short stay in the city. I would definitely recommend.

We stayed here on 2 different occasions and were quite happy both times. The rooms may be small, but the are functionally laid out, modern and clean. Nice amenities that gives an air of sophistication throughout. There is no lobby per se, the downstairs is all but taken up by the nice bar, which is used for the cold breakfast buffet (basic staples as you would expect). Considering the location, design and cleanliness, well worth it for a small hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are probably quieter. No views.

First trip to the US and booked hotel online as read Trip Advisor feedback. Charlesmark was in a great location. We walked throughout Boston from the hotel but could easily have taken the 'T' located across the street. Close to shops, restaurants and the Freedon Trail. Excellent service from reception, good continental breakfast in the bar area and free tea/coffee all day if required. Lovely room and fabulous bathroom. Loved the Duck Tour and walked to Harvard Uni - took an hour and a half but worth it. Would definitely use this hotel again and recommend to all.

Stayed: August 2011, travelled with family

Our third time to the Charlesmark and owner gave us complimentary drinks for anniversary to start...right outside is the Boston library, Newbury street and the Prudential Center. Cannot beat the location...rooms are on the small side but you are in heart of the city and the staff is great. Love this little nugget.

My husband and I stayed here while attending a wedding. We were so pleased with the location, the service, the breakfast, the room, and our view from the 6th floor. It was very easy to park in front of the hotel for checking in and out. The walk to the parking garage was reasonable. I liked being able to have hot tea at any time in the bar area. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to choose a room on a high floor facing the street.
