We stayed for 3 nights in the North Tower room on the top floor with our two teenage daughters. We had previously spent a week in New York City (hotel for one night and a modern self-catering apartment for the remainder), so we loved the contrast here. Gryphon House is a beautifully decorated old Brownstone building in a quiet location, and our room had a lovely view over the Charles River. We received a wonderful welcome from Theresa (including even helping us to carry our luggage up the stairs!), helping us to feel very much at home, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As other reviewers have pointed out, there is no elevator and no hot breakfast, but we knew this in advance so it was not a disappointment.
For a family of four we felt it was very good value, and the location was great - close to Kenmore 'T' station - though we often walked down to Newbury Street which is wonderful for shops and restaurants (we would recommend "Roost" for a great meal). Gryphon House is also close enough to the Charles River if you want to go jogging along the river path or over the bridge. All in all, a great experience, and we all wished we could have stayed longer!
