Chandler Studios
Ranked #14 of 37 Boston B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 January 2014

I was in town to visit friends and family. I wanted a place that was very modern, in the middle of the city with easy walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and the bars. The Chandler Studios was a great choice. I stayed in the 2 double bed studio facing the front of the building on Berkley. Great views, loved the decor of the room, and nice to have a fully equipped kitchenette for warming up of leftovers on real plates or have drinks in the evening. The best part was the key less entry into the building and the room. No hassle with room keys.

I was overall very happy with accommodations and the pricing. The city definitely needs more of this type of hotels. One only improvement that could be made is the free WiFi. It was spotty at times which got annoying as you got cut off, but overall the experience staying at the Chandler Studios was positive. I would definitely stay here again in the future!

Stayed there for business on a busy week day and most hotels in town were booked, so while this place was not my first choice, it ended up being a very pleasant surprise. The room was spacious, decorated with taste, and very comfortable - the bathroom was particularly nice. The location is perfect in the heart of Back Bay, with many restaurants and attractions within walking distance (the street is quiet though so you will not have problems sleeping).

These apartments are lovely.

There was a slight issue finding out how to get in - the apartments are separate from the main hotel and we were not told to go to the hotel to get the entry code!

Apart from that, the neighbourhood is lovely - residential with some gorgeous shops and restaurants. Very safe with no issues walking around at night.

The room was spotlessly clean - very comfy bed, massive bathroom with a brilliant shower. It was so good I took a shower in the morning and evening to make the most of it!

I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends and family.

Not sure what others were expecting who left marginal reviews. Chandler Studio's (Note the Studio side) was perfect for a weeks stay for a recent conference at the Hynes Center. It's about a mile walk to the conference center which is quite doable or grab a cab. The room is very European in design and feel with modern furnishings and décor. It does take a bit of getting used to using a number pad rather than key and basically being left alone but if an apartment style stay is attractive to you the place is spot on. Of note, a colleague stayed across the street at the Chandler Inn and did not find the room particularly to suite him. Apparently it is much different than the Studio side.

This place was a great find. Not only was it a fairly easy walk to many of the key locations in Boston, the local area around the site had lots to offer for food and drinks in the evening. The room Itself was comfortable and clean. Do not expect huge rooms you might get in a modern hotel but they have everything you would ever need during your stay.

We were looking for something modern and found Chandler Studios which are totally renovated small studio apartments (really a room with kitchenette at one end and table and chairs at the other but has a spacious feel) in a very cool redone area of Boston. We loved the design which was in grey, cream, and red -minimalist but still comfy enough with two queen beds, a small table and two chairs as well as a kitchenette with coffee maker (coffee included), small frig, garbage disposal and enough plates, utensils, etc. for a simple breakfast or "happy hour" in the room. The shower (no tub) and overall bath was also totally modern. Everything was very well maintained and although it is certainly not inexpensive (Boston is an expensive city), it suited our needs because although we walked a lot, we never even took the T because we ended up liking the south side/back bay area so much. You check in and out at the Chandler Inn (there is no "common area") and they seemed nice although we had little contact with them other than those two times.

Room Tip: Our room had a really cool view of the street across which had very beautiful buildings and although...

We staid there for a couple of nights and realy enjoyed our new, bright and well decorated rooms. No old posterbeds, our "antiques", but nice contemporary design in an old renovated building. We loved our stay there. The location is also great, near the shopping street of boston, but also near nice restaurants and bars at tremont street!
