“Great Location, Reasonable Rates”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

The Chandler Inn is located just two blocks south and east of Back Bay Station, very convenient to Back Bay, to downtown and to the Orange and Green lines. The neighborhood is very nice and very quiet, mostly old townhouses. The rates are very reasonable. The staff is very friendly. If you're not planning to spend a lot of time sitting in your hotel room, this is a great bargain.

We stayed in a two twin bed room. The room is small. There is only one dresser, and it was mostly filled with the spare blankets. There is no closet at all, just a small rack in one corner, with seven hangars. The bathroom is tiny. There is only one chair in the room, and the writing desk is very small, with no light other than the ceiling light over it. There was no ironing board or blow dryer in the room (I didn't ask - maybe they would have been provided upon request). None of the above items bothered us in the least.

The beds were comfortable, and the place is very clean. This is an old hotel that's neen nicely updated. They had small rooms to work with, and they did what they could. The old construction also means no noise. I usually travel by train or plane, so I didn't have to deal with the parking problem. I strongly recommend this hotel, and will stay there any time I'm in Boston.

The Chandler Inn is a very good option for leisure trips to Boston. The design and cleanliness of the rooms is great, and the location is wonderfully quiet, but still very close to the action. The hotel and the parking options are definitely not cheap - but as this is true for all Boston hotels and as parking is expensive anywhere in the center, I guess it is incredibly difficult to find a better place than the Chandler Inn.

We spent a week here in August 2012. This hotel is on a quiet street right across the highway from downtown Boston. If you like to walk, you can be on Newbury St in about 7 minutes and at eating or grabbing a drink on Tremont St in about 3 minutes. The only downside is that the hotel does not have parking, although Reception provides guests a coupon for a discounted rate of $23/day at a nearby (5-7 minute walk) from the hotel. The rooms were comfortable, if (as described by others) and while perfectly fine, a bit small. The staff were very helpful and attentive. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for a weekend in August and found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. The front desk staff were polite and helpful and free coffee is available in the lobby at all times. The rooms, as other reviewers have mentioned, are somewhat small but we did not find this to be a problem at all. Ours was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The room was very quiet - no noise at all from the street or hallways or adjacent rooms. The location was fine - on an attractive street in a safe area, and a short walk to shops and restaurants and public transportation. It is not a luxury hotel and fairly basic, but a good choice if you are looking for a good hotel at a reasonable price in a convenient location. I would definitely consider staying here again the next time I visit Boston.

Yes, the rooms and bathrooms are small—but more than big enough. I found the rooms well appointed, very clean and perfect for a business stay. I stayed 4 nights and had a wonderful experience. The staff can't be beat...they went out of their way to help me with my needs that had nothing to do with the room. If you are looking for a resort style place, this is not it. If you are looking for a great place at an affordable rate—stay here. I'll be back next trip to Boston.

We were there for 5 nights. The rooms were very nice, clean and modern...the only negative point is that it can be a little too small if you're searching spacy rooms. The location is perfect. The atmosphere of the neighborhood was calm despite the bar "fritz" just underneath. Having been in New York 7 days before, the contrast was very important. In Boston, and in this hotel you can relax without any noise to the contrary of Manhattan. So I simply advise it to anyone.

I was traveling on business and working long hours in a lab. The hotel was quiet, clean, and conveniently located by a 24 hr shops allowing me to get needed food and other items during off hours. The staff was extremely helpful.
