I had a good feeling about Colonnade right away when I stepped in and that feeling kept getting better and better the longer I stayed there. Staff at the reception, concierge and bell boys were all extremely helpful and polite. I have to give them credit for all the useful and objective tips and friendly attitude.
We got a spacious double room with queen sized twin beds from the top floor. I just loved the stylish and fresh interior of the room, the beautiful bathroom with double doors and a little yellow bath duck. The window wall was all window, from floor to roof and the view was great. I could see all away to Fenway Park from up there.
Location is perfect. If you arrive by train, Back Bay Station is just like 5mins walk from the hotel. Nearest subway station (Prudential Station, Green Line E) is just in front as the Prudential Center itself. There´s also a dry cleaner / coin laundry just around the corner (W Newton St.) and great breakfast place called Thornton´s a block from the hotel (150 Huntington Av.).
If you want to eat your breakfast at the hotel, it will be served in Brasserie Jo, which is like the hotel´s own restaurant just next door. Breakfast was ok there, food was good, but in my opinion the place was a bit overpriced and service was, yes, polite but also stiff, cocky and cold. I wouldn´t go there again, cause there are so many other breakfast places in Boston having friendly staff and great value for food.
I have heard and red that the hotel has also quite a great roof top pool, but unfortunately it was closed during my stay cause it was raining all the time.
I really liked the hotel and I would definitely recommend Colonnade to everybody!
