“Great location and high quality rooms”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

The location of this hotel was perfect for us. Right next to Copley Square with easy access to transport and lots going on around. We couldn't have asked for a better location.

We were very impressed by the boutique style room and the staff could not have been more helpful.

We stayed here for 4 nights, the rooms were clean, quiet and spacious. The guys at the front desk were very helpful and nothing was to much trouble. The only thing that wasnt 100% perfect was breakfast. The breakfast was included in the price and consisted of fruit, doughnuts (2 choices), a variety of bagels and instant Oates. There was also tea and coffee and you could just help yourself. It was fine and tasted good, but did get a little boring as we were there for a few days, also it would have been good to have tongs to pick up the bagels and doughnuts. However I would defiantly recommend staying here and would do so again!!

We stayed 4 nights in Boston from June 4th 2013, we had two rooms. All the staff were fantastic especially Andrew, Rachel and Ferguson. The main part of our trip was to go to Fenway Park being Boston fans to celebrate our 50th birthdays and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff to make our trip one to remember. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable and the location was great. We were also lucky enough to get arms distance from Dustin Pedroia after a game which was a massive highlight of our trip. Boston is a beautiful city,so clean and we plan a return visit.

I was lucky to have the opportunity to spend one night in Boston. We wanted to stay in a central location where it was easy to get around to all the famous locations and hot spots. I have to say, The Charlesmark Hotel couldn't have been more perfect for a short Boston city visit. It is a modern boutique hotel located centrally on one of the most popular streets. It was easy to navigate in both directions of the city and it had some amazing restaurants and shops walking distance away. The rooms are small, but had everything you could possibly want a hotel to have! There is an amazing stereo system connected to the speakers along with a flat screen tv. The beds are comfortable for a good nights rest, the bathrooms are modern and clean with new, thick bath towels.
If you are looking for a place to stay that is modern, clean, and boutique style to come and go as you please...plus be in the heart of it all, then this is the place! The staff was more than helpful as well. They were able to highlight all the main areas to see and gave great recomendations of places to eat. I also loved how they were able to give me a great running loop for me to see the city while I got some exercise. They even provide a day pass to the Boston Sports Club down the road for $15!
I spend a lot of time traveling and have stayed in all kinds of hotels; five stars, boutique hotels, as well as hostels at times and I was very impressed with the quality for the price of the Charlesmark Hotel. For me, it was the perfect short stay in a clean, modern, and great location boutique hotel with a staff that was super friendly.
(I rarely leave reviews, but I had to on this one because it was a great short stay for the price and I want other to know about it.)

Great hotel at reasonable price right in the heart of Boston. Clean, quiet, and very pleasant. We were on the 6th floor, and never heard any traffic. The room was small but very comfortable, with a modern look to it. We loved the location.

Room Tip: Choose the 6th floor, you won't hear any traffic at all!

My finance and I stayed here...worst idea ever! This hotel is in great location, but that's about it.

Pros: Location, close to shopping, restaurants, bars, subway, Fenway Park. It was clean and the shower had good water pressure.

Cons: Really small rooms and hallway. Two people cannot walk down the hallway at the same time. The room is super tiny, no space for luggage. The room has blinds, no curtains, bright lights from the apartments behind the hotel shine bright all night, it's like you never turned off the lights. Worst sleep I've ever had in a hotel.

We stayed at Charlesmark Hotel for two nights and it was a very good choice. The hotel is located in a nice area of Boston and it's a good base for sightseeing and shopping. The room was little but comfortable, modern and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful.
I could stay there again.
