“Great Stay!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

My husband and I went to Boston for our anniversary. We stayed at Charlesmark and it was a great choice. The area is very nice, everything is so close. The T is right across the hotel (Copley Station). Laura at the front desk was very nice. We got 2 free drinks at the bar for our anniversary, we thought this was a nice touch. The Thai food at the bar was good too. Everyday there was free breakfast, coffee, bagels, fruit, oatmeal, etc. We definitely will stay here again. The location is just great!

We were in Boston for a couple of days before Christmas and totally happy with our stay at Charlesmark. The location is superb - T metro just a few steps away, walking distance to Copley Square, Newbury St. and other Boston attractions. We hadn't booked so long in advance so most of the rooms within our budget were sold out that we had to choose the standard queen room, which is okay except the bed is a bit small for 2.

We loved the music they put in the room and played it all the time. Even the bathroom has the connected speaker, which is pretty enjoyable and surprised us for a boutique hotel.

2 bottles of water are provided for each room everyday but sometimes they do forget, so remember to ask if you don't see them.

My son and I recently stay at The Charlesmark Hotel. The staff was outstandingly accommodating and friendly. The room was spacious, sparkling clean, and modern. The location is superb and in the heart of it all,across from the Prudential Center and within walking distance to The Boston Common, Newbury Street, Copley Place, the Theater District, The Charles River, The South End, and Beacon Hill. The hotel manager, Curt, and lounge manager, Jefferson, go out of their way to make you feel at home. I had the opportunity to meet the owner, Mark, who was extremely personable and welcoming. Hands down, The Charlesmark is the best place to stay in Boston.

Stayed here for a city trip in between Christmas and New Year. This is a lovely little boutique hotel with restaurants and bars within the area.15/ 20 mins walk to Boston common or the T metro is opposite the hotel.Rooms are cosy but well appointed. Breakfast was simple but very good- bagels/doughnuts/fresh fruit/porridge. The staff though made the hotel with their willingness to help you with anything in such friendly manner. I would highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Boston

We stayed here for 1 night in September 2012. The location was fantastic, close to all the sights we wanted to see, and we walked everywhere. Continental breakfast was included, which was a nice touch. The staff were fantastic, very helpful with direction, recommendations and local tips. The room was small, but nicely appointed. Modern bathroom fit out with speakers that were connected to the TV. Could have been improved with the provision of a safe. Would definitely recommend.

Got a good deal on flight and five nights at the Charlesmark through Expedia.
Location was perfect for us...right next to Trinity Church, Public Library, Newbury St., great restaurants....steps away from the T subway which quickly brought us downtown to Historic sights or to the Fenway area for the art museums.
A modern looking hotel but very comfy rooms and pretty quiet, given location.
Friendly staff, basic breakfast included.
We highly recommend.

Room Tip: We had street view which was lovely.

Had a great stay at the Charlesmark. For the price it was a very good location, near transport and tons of shopping. We got a heap of Boxing Day deals.

Room had everything we needed, lots of channels, good clean bathroom and shower.

Service was great. We had to keep our luggage there till very late in the evening and they were ok with it. I had issues with a cash debit card which they handled very well whilst I stressed out for a bit.

Would stay again.
