Stayed with the family for a couple nights this summer. Did a lot of walking and picked this location because it was close to everything. Shopping, walked to a Sox game etc. Will stay again, staff was great.

Stayed: July 2013, travelled with family

This hotel is the renovated former main Boston police station. The service was outstanding. Everyone was very helpful. The rooms were clean and updated. They were smaller than more modern hotels. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean with updated fixtures. The location is very good in the Back Bay within walking distance to many restaurants.

I paid about $460/night for my room which was a little too much but I had no choice because I wanted to stay close to Hynes Convention Center and there was so much going on during the time I stayed there.

Good:
1. This place is about walking distance to the convention center, Boston Library, nice little plaza, big shopping mall, ride the ducks and other cute shops.
2. Check in and out was easy.
3. My room was clean and the bathroom was nice
4. There's a bar and exercise room
5. Free wifi for up to two devices (check if your reservation includes this.)
6. About $25 for taxi from the airport (excluding tip)
7. Friendly and helpful staff
8. Comfortable bed

Not so good:
1. The price was a bit high
2. I could hear people talking outside and of course road noise. It was a little hard to sleep.
3. When I'm on a rush, I tend to not wash my hair in the morning so I needed a shower cap, but it wasn't available (minor detail really)
4. No free breakfast, not even a muffin, considering how expensive it was to stay there

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms by the road.

Great location just a couple of blocks from Back Bay station so easy to reach after a train journey from DC. Exceptionally helpful staff and a very comfortable room. Found getting around using public transport was very convenient as the hotel is close to the underground train station. Spent a couple of great days in and around Boston with a wide choice of places to eat.

We stayed here in September on the first leg of a fly drive holiday through Virgin. Met outside by the valet parking who took away the car until we left three days later. Parking is expensive at $42 a day but is much easier than trying to find parking spaces elsewhere.
Check in was very efficient, the room very good with all the facilities you need. Large bathroom and walk in shower.
The concierge was extremely helpful and booked us the Trolley Tour on-line which saved money and gave us an additional harbour tour and Boston Tea Party tour free of charge.

while visiting Boston we stayed here. Convenient location, spacious room with a very comfortable bed. A little bit high priced, but very nice. The bar was a great place to have a drink and watch the Red Sox, and the staff was very good.

It's not often that a hotel embodies all that a city stands for, but the Loews Boston is just that place. Housed in the stately limestone building that was once home to the Boston Police Headquarters, our recently renovated boutique property is-like the city of Boston itself-a unique and unforgettable blend of historic charm, urbane sophistication and authentic New England hospitality. Our exclusive Back Bay location, which is ideally situated between three of Boston's hottest neighborhoods-the South End, the Theater District and the Back Bay-puts you in the heart of all that Boston has to offer, with everything you want to see or experience, including the shopping on Newbury Street, just moments away. If you are in town for an event at one of Boston's many colleges and universities, we offer effortless access to the campuses of Boston University, Boston College, Harvard, Northeastern, Emerson and Tufts Medical School, to name just a few. Our 225 spacious guestrooms, two luxury suites and an expansive Presidential Suite have been freshly renovated and bring you the ultimate in modern convenience and comfort. And our recently updated 1,024-square-foot Harrison Room-with its vaulted, 20-foot cathedral ceilings and crystal chandelier-is an unparalleled event space and the perfect location for your next intimate gathering. ... more   less
