This is a old hotel ( The original Ritz before being taken over by the TAJ group) but it is clean and well run. The staff are lovely and very helpful. we had a room on the 11th floor with a view of Newbury Street but that's not very important as you should be out your room seeing the city anyway! We arrived very late overnight (2am) and had contacted the hotel to keep our room as we were worried it may be given up to resell, particularly as The Red Sox were starting to play in Boston in the final of the World Series. We need not have worried - Amy in reservations had sorted this out for us. location was great - right next to the park and near all main streets. Cheers Bar ( the original) was just around the corner. Building works on Newbury Street did cause some noise problems but that's life anywhere.The room had 2 double beds , turn down service at night with slippers and was very good and at that price it should be. This is probably the second most expensive room ( and it was the basic one!) we have ever booked in a hotel anywhere in the world ($+++) . The great disappointment was no tea or coffee in the room - this had to be purchased separately and of course if you want room service this carried an extra charge plus tip. The other TAJ hotels we have looked at ( ie Cape Town) all have in room tea/coffee so why not here?. Wifi was also extra. In this day and age tea/coffee and wifi are a must. When we return to Boston it will not be to the TAJ - no tea/coffee or wifi means no us.
