Chandler Inn
Ranked #72 of 84 Hotels in Boston
Reviewed 3 May 2014

The hotel is in a quiet and charming residential neighborhood, two blocks from the subway station and around 10 minutes walking to Copley Square and a little more to others touristic places. The room is small but very nice, modern and clean. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Although there is no restaurant or room service, the hotel offers a machine for free coffee or chocolate besides the reception desk, what is very pleasant, and there is a Cafe and a 7 Eleven store just around the corner.

Room Tip: Corners rooms are very nice.

I stayed 3 nights. The first my bed was really too soft and I get up with back pain. In that same room the shower was leaking a lot and the floor was all wet. So I asked for another room. The second night the bed was normal but I was not able to get hot water in the shower only. So my last night I askey again and I get a bed and a shower normal, yeah! The personnal are nice and the place is clean. There is hot chocolate or free coffee at the reception.

I knew the room was going to be small based on other reviews and it certainly was small with no closets. However, the room was very updated, modern, clean, well decorated, and the bathroom had great finishes. For the price, it was a great deal. The neighborhood was very charming and convenient as well. I walked to many places in the city, but took cabs a few places and it was cheap. Cabs don't line up out in front of The Chandler Inn like most of the larger hotels, so you will have to call one or get the front desk to call, but they arrive in 5-10 minutes.

If you're looking for food close by, I walked over to Tremont Street which had lots of options. The restaurant attached to the hotel seemed to be a very popular bar for the gay community.

As long as you're not looking for a fancy lobby and just need a nice room at a great price, Chandler Inn is a great option.

The price for this hotel seemed too good to be true compared to others in Boston, but it was excellent. The location is a little out of the main tourist sights, but in a charming and safe area, close enough to the train station to get to and from the airport easily, and a nice walk into town and the history trail.
There is no food - restaurant or room service - but there are plenty of options just down the road, as well as a 7-11 on the same block if you want snacks to take back to the room.
The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly as I arrived earlier than expected (1pm) completely jet-lagged, and they changed my room to one that was ready so I could have a nap.

Our expectations were not high because the price was considerably lower than other boston hotels. We were happily surprised by the charming neighborhood, and the artsy hotel was contemporary and refreshing. We walked all over Boston in comfort.

Room Tip: Our room on Chandler Street was pleasant and quiet. No street traffic.

I stayed here for the first time, was unfamiliar with the area, but was pleasantly surprised. The location turned out to be perfect. Quick walk to transit and a nearby 7-11 was an added bonus for late night snacks. Lobby was a bit small, but the rooms were pretty nice! Much nicer than I was expecting, very good for the price.

A nice hotel located in the historical part of the city. 5 minutes walk to the Back Bay Subway station, 10 minutes to beautiful Copley Square and the Newbury Street fot those who like shopping. The hotel has no food services, just a coffee bar in the lobby. Try the pub next to the hotel, nice atmosphere. The rooms are small but clean. Good choice for those who do not want to spend too much money.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have less noice however traffic is slow.
