“Very corporate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

This hotel is very business like, corporate, not at all warm or particularly welcoming although the bell staff and doormen were really helpful. Its right off Copley Sq towards Symphony, and its pretty $$$. My room thermostat didn't work well and the room was quite warm, there was a pad but no pen, and the cords for both bedside lamps were unplugged behind a heavy bed. Someone was sent up to help. The bed was very very comfortable, and the windows opened. Great location, and good for Northeastern visits. I'd prefer something a bit homier....but the do have long large umbrellas to borrow in the lobby, just ask.

Stayed May 2014, travelled with friends

I stay here everytime I come to Boston for business. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The staff is helpful. The free Wi-Fi is a plus! I love that my office, the mall and restaurants are walking distance. I don't have to get a cab everytime.

We chose this from the reviews from Trip advisor and we are so pleased. It was an amazing hotel and we couldn't find anything wrong.
Everyone was so helpful. It was in a great location for shops and eateries.

We are hoping to go back

We stayed marathon weekend an had the most excellent exp. we were able to drop our bags off Saturday for safe keeping so when our runners came through they had a change of clothes. Monday when we got to the hotel our bags were already in our room...very smooth. The staff was very friendly and professional and went the extra mile. In the future it would be not a question to book the place again...we loved it!

We were more than pleased with our experience at the Colonnade. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and informed about our parking options, making it easy to start our getaway. The location is fabulous. Our room overlooked the beautiful fountain, and we were a close walk to Fenway Park to watch the game. We enjoyed Cheesecake Factory on our walk back, as it was right across the street. Our room was luxurious, and the bed gave us an amazing night's sleep. I highly recommend this hotel for your stay.

Room Tip: The higher floors have beautiful views!

We splurged and stayed here for an overnight and it was worth it. The location was perfect for Back Bay - close to everything. The room was big enough for our family of four without feeling crowded. The staff was also very helpful. We'd stay here again.

I would highly recommend The Colonnade Hotel in Boston it is amazing and we have been staying at the Colonnade for 2 years, once or twice a month over the 2 years and it feels like home and the staff is so friendly and accommodating. I would like to mention Norman the gentleman at the door is so helpful and nice, I have an Ford F250 truck and it will not fit in the parking lot and Norman was so helpful he helped us out not just once but many times we have stayed at the Colonnade, Thank you again for all your help.
