We spent three nights here as our base for touring Revolutionary War sites in and around Boston. It was also our fifteen wedding anniversary so we were looking for more romantic accomodations that fit our tour theme. Gryphon House was excellent on both counts! The Inn has been meticulously restored to it's original glamoure with beautiful hardwood floors, tile, furnishings, and a friendly and helpful staff. The staircase to the rooms is particularly remarkable with it's curved wooden handrail (one piece from bottom to top). We found the location to be convenient to local restaraunts and the subway in Kenmore Square and if you are a baseball fan it is almost next door to Fenway Park. Subway ride was five stops to Boston Commons. We stayed in the Tower Room on the top floor which was a bit of a challenge with heavy suitcases as there is no elevator, but we managed quite well and the view of the Charles River was excellent! We would highly recommend this top notch Inn to anyone who is looking to depart from the standard hotel faire and sample a bit of history.
