“Good hotel, friendly service”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

I recently stayed here while attending a conference at the Hynes conference centre. This is an ideal location- just over the road from the conference centre but not embedded in the shopping centre.
Check in was efficinet and despite a problem with the room key system they got us all into rooms and posted keys under doors later so we were not inconvenienced. Great service from the luggage guys and concierge as well. Room was comfortable and well equipped.
The only down side would be that service at breakfast is a bit slow but food good and bar serves great martinis!

The location is enough to recommend this hotel- but the property, rooms and staff each offer something special to up the ante for this jewel of a hotel. The staff went above and beyond and provided an experience that really distinguished the hotel. The rooms are modern, smallish and a reasonable value for this price point. The facilities including gym were good.

Really isn't anything that I can say to fault the hotel, except that there is not free wifi. The hotel is in a great location, rooms were very large and comfortable. The staff was genuinely really friendly and seemed to actually care how the guests are enjoying their stay. Whenever I stay in Boston, The Collonade will be the first place I look.

I had a great, large room, with a nice view of the city off the south side (no tall buildings in that direction). Plenty of room and storage. Big working table by the window. Loved having the French Bistro for room service options (great French Onion Soup and fresh, real baguette).

Room Tip: Ask for upper floor looking south (no tall buildings that direction, so nice view and lots of sunshi...

I stayed, again, recently at the hotel and decided for the first time ever to write a review on Trip Advisor. Even though I've stayed at other nice hotels in the city, the Colonnade is simply always excellent. I love the rooms, they are always clean, and there are never any surprises. Except for the staff…and in a good way. I had a conversation with one of them about my being a sports fan and he went out of his way to tell me all of the things I could do…sports related…that were in walking distance from the hotel. I took his advice and had a great time. Two days later, I ran into him in the lobby and he asked me how I enjoyed it and we shared a few sports memories. It felt like he sincerely cared and it's why I'll keep going back.

I've always heard how awesome the pool was at the Colonnade and last summer I booked a room so I could enjoy it with some friends. But the pool is not the only reason to visit. When we arrived the service was excellent. Each time I passed through the lobby I was greeted by smiling and attentive staff members. The room was quite large and the bed was extremely comfortable after soaking up the sun all day. The access to the Back Bay and Prudential Center were fantastic with a variety of restaurants within walking distance. I would suggest anyone looking for an escape from the norm visit the pool and have a stay at the Colonnade when the temps are rising in Boston. I can't wait to go back!
