I really liked this hotel, especially for the price. It was a great location, cute place, very nice room and bathroom ( a little on the small side but not a problem) and nice bar. The location and price were the selling point for me, but it was clean, comfortable, quiet (and we were right next to the elevator), comfortable bed, very nice and again, LOCATION! This was my first trip to Boston. I would return and stay here again!

Loved this hotel we stayed one night the rate was great compared to everything in the area. They were very friendly the rooms were a little small but it was great we had classical music playing when we arrived which was welcoming it was in the middle of everything stores bus train and of course bars and restaurant we walked to Fenway too which was like 15-20 mins they also have free wifi and breakfast which we didn't get to enjoy. They close the front door to the hotel after midnight and you need your key to open it the only negative is that our room was facing boylston street so in the morning we could hear all the traffic and everything that was going out side but aside from that it was good.

After our first trip to Boston, we can stay we will never stay anywhere else if we don't have to. We're picky travelers when it comes to staying in nice hotels. The Charlesmark is phenomenal. From their top notch customer service and knowledge of the area and go-to spots.as well as their willingness to help and provide are unrivaled. the rooms were perfectly sized and extremely clean with modern finishes.
the location is perfectly located in Boston. If you're one for eating in quaint interesting restaurants, seeing a show close by or shopping anywhere from moderately to upscale pricing. The Charlesmark hits the spot.

This hotel is located very close to Copley Square and Trinity Church. We also walked to Boston Common and Public Gardens (if you'd like a trip out in the swan boats or a Freedom trail tour). The Prudential Centre is also quite close and the Cheesecake Factory is just a few short blocks away! The rooms, although compact, were well equipped, well air conditioned, and clean. Bagels and drinks (juice, tea, coffee) were provided for breakfast. We managed to get quite a reasonable rate and would return again.

This was probably the best location we could have chosen to see Boston, for several reasons.
First, the staff was excellent, especially Andrew who was helpful in making recommendations of places to eat and sight to see (though I pretty well new in advance of the trip what to see). His willingness to help and his attitude were what I'd expect from a luxury hotel. He could teach other customer service people a few things!
The location was great because we were within walking distance of everything - many historic sights to visit very close by and w/in a mile of Fenway Park to the West and a mile of downtown to the East.
Great shopping and restaurants close by also. And T stations were just across the street and on the corner. Would definitely stay here again!
(Rooms are small. Friends traveling with us got the smaller of the rooms we were assigned. Ours was a bit more spacious but none of them are large. We selected this hotel for it's location and were quite pleased overall.)

Room Tip: Don't select the standard size rooms. They are tiny. Ask for a larger room.

Good location. Clean and staff very friendly and helpful. However the room was tiny (it was smaller than our room on a cruise ship) and the bed was very short, 6ft2" and my legs hung off the end. The elevator broke so we had to walk up 4 flights of stairs, which is fine, but it was a mission to bring all of our luggage down when we checked out. For the money we spent on this room, I would rather pay a bit more and stay somewhere a bit more comfortable next time.

Room Tip: Be short, you will fit in the bed comfortably.

My grandson and I were in Boston three years ago. Returning in July this year for two Red Sox games, being from Michigan, we chose the Charlesmark hotel, and what a tremendous experience we loved the location and of course the history all around this area. The staff was wonderful and helpful, and just nice people to be around! This hotel is in a perfect location and I will return again perhaps next summer. Thank you Charlesmark and the people of Boston, for helping our stay a memory I will cherrish forever! Boston Strong Sincerly Dallas Mesack @ Logan Mesack
