enVision Hotel Boston - Longwood

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 June 2014

To be honest we chose the enVision as it is way cheaper than hotels in Central Boston. However it is conveniently situated near tram stops and our journeys into town took under half an hour. At the price we paid we did not expect a five star hotel but we were pleased with what was on offer.
The staff were pleasant and helpful and the rooms are well decorated and clean. The bedrooms are thoughtfully equipped and the provision of lots of readily accessible power points is way superior to that found in many more upscale hotels The beds are good quality and very comfortable . Our room was spacious and it would have been nice to have had a second chair . Breakfast isn't available in house but this didn't really matter as we were able to incorporate this into our sight seeing schedule.
The gym was disappointing as it felt rather dusty and uncared for. There were no mats for floor exercises.

Room Tip: We were in 308 which was fine I didn't see an other rooms however other reviewers have drawn att...

This is a great boutique hotel in the city of Boston. The staff was very, very friendly and helpful, and the hotel was in tip top shape. The rooms were well kept and clean, a beautiful bathroom, comfortable beds with many pillows and it is just steps away from a "T" line. It is off the beaten path a bit, so if you are looking for restaurants and activities right outside your doorstep, then this might not be the place for you. But for a nice, well kept hotel with a great staff right in the heart of Boston and a short train ride to everything, this hotel is perfect.
We were sorry we only stayed one night. We would definitely stay here on our next visit. Highly recommended.

Before booking multiple rooms at envision Hotel we read through reviews and felt confident that it would meet our needs for a safe, clean hotel with easy access to the hospitals in the area. If you read through other reviews you will see where enVision Hotel is located, that it is a boutique hotel, that it offers complimentary desserts one evening and complimentary snacks another. You will see that the rooms are very clean and provide superb amenities(2 complimentary bottles of water a day & Kuerig coffee maker). If you are staying for a medical visit you will appreciate that enVision provides vouchers for free taxi rides to and from nearby hospitals.

What we didn't expect was the fabulous customer service we received from booking until we departed ten days later. All of the enVision Hotel associates went to great lengths to provide not just what we needed but also things that made what could have been a stressful visit so comfortable and pleasant. We felt like they were part of our family or at least friends by the end of our stay.

Need some examples of this outstanding service? We had ten people traveling for our daughters heart surgery at Boston Children's including parents, sibling, grandparents, aunts and a boyfriend. All the rooms were close together, which made communication very easy. They provided a rollaway bed and even continued to make it up each morning when we placed the mattress on the floor. Provided extra towels, blankets and pillows within minutes of our requests. Requested taxis for us as needed in a very timely fashion.Helped us find places in Boston to enjoy as a group both pre and post surgery. Made us feel welcome and at home by greeting all of us each time we arrived. We felt that they all cared about our daughter's progress. When surgery was successful and our daughter came back to the hotel, they genuinely welcomed her back, provided even more pillows to make her comfortable and allowed us to "borrow" a chair from their lobby so she could sit comfortably in the room for the rest of our trip.

enVision Hotel associates continued to go above and beyond until the very end of our trip. My husband had worked to get everyone in their cabs with all of the luggage for our departure to the airport. We arrived at the airport, checked our luggage, got a wheelchair and headed to security when he discovered he had left his cell phone in the front seat of a cab. Our son suggested he call enVision to see if they could help. They did! They were able to track down the cab and within 30 minutes they were back at the airport with the cell phone and we were on our way.

The owners of EnVision should be so proud of the team of people they have assembled at their hotel. We are hoping to return to Boston in 2015 for the Notre Dame/Boston College football game. We will be staying at enVision Hotel!

We send our heartfelt thanks to all of you at EnVision Hotel for making our stay in Boston, for lack of a better word, blessed.

Room Tip: The connecting King Rooms worked very well for our larger group.

A wonderful boutique hotel, managed to relieve all stress from even the most stressed events. Staff made both the preplanning and the week there easy. Contemporary furnishings a delight to return to. Service was exceptional. Near enough to Children's Hospital for a brisk walk. Taxi-on-call an appreciated service. Trolley stop just up or down the hill. First choice for any return visit to the Boston area.

Room Tip: Two queen rooms sharing an alcove entrance provided togetherness or privacy, as desired.

The hotel is located very close to the Jamaica Plains VA. Of note, this isn't too far aware if you were to consider taking the "T" into town as well. The room is large, quiet, and the service folks there are very kind. It has this European-chic to it. I would certainly stay in this place next time in in the Boston area.

I stayed at the enVision Hotel recently before a medical procedure at a major Boston hospital nearby. It's a gem of a "boutique" type hotel near the Longwood Medical area, Harvard Medical School and the Brigham & Women's Faulkner Hospital. Staff was super friendly, helpful and welcoming and the hotel was clean, fresh, contemporary (but not "cold") and cozy. It's never easy preparing for a hospital visit but the enVision helped make the whole experience bearable. I would definitely stay here again - well done, enVision!
