Erica Garrity

Reasonably priced Wonderful to have a kitchen and a target across the street with a Starbucks Hubby was a bit disappointed with breakfast options

Only reason for 4 stars is because there were a few things in our room (203) that weren’t 100%: toilet paper holder is loose so TP fell into trash can or In floor Living room black out curtains didn’t close & towel rack on outside of shower glass came off

Alyssa V

Overall this was a decent hotel and is literally just steps to Fenway There’s lots of amenities like a laundry room, rooftop pool, rooftop bar and lounge area, and a workout roomThe room I had was also fairly nice and it had a full kitchen

I had one or two small issues with the door, the shower, and the lights, but it was all pretty minor and didn’t affect me too much The one thing I didn’t care for was the noise; the doors are really heavy and you can hear them shutting in the hallway which was annoying

Joanne Grieco

Love this hotel – the one bedroom suites give you the best combo of space, kitchenette and cost of any hotel in Boston Super convenient to the Longwood Medical area, contemporary vibe and friendly staff Full breakfast included, and a rooftop terrace for city viewing with a cocktail

No restaurants on site, but the area has many wonderful choices Pet friendly! Will definitely return

We came in pretty late and Ryan was at the front desk He is amazing!! The valet parking is definitely worth it Our girls left some homework in the car by accident and Ryan offered to go get it for us

The hotel itself is beautiful The rooms are clean and very comfortable! I highly recommend it if you are in the area or need to stop to rest while passing through

Scott Pactor

I stay in Boston twice a year traveling with my partner to see her family I’ve stayed in hotels all over Boston We always pay somewhere between 200 to 400 a night, 2 to 3 nights each visit

This is a newish (pandemic era) hotel at the base of Charles Street, on the other side of the enormous intersection from the Liberty hotel They out together one new building with a second, older hotel, they kept some of the old facade which you can see when you exit the elevator It was a good experience, professional staff who genuinely seemed to care about their jobs, which I didn’t see at the Wentworth in Portsmouth on this same tripRoom had no closet but the bathroom was huge as a percentage of total space

Mary Goldberg

5 Star hotel from start to finish: compassionate, respectful, kind, empathetic We were in a jam, staying at another 4 Star hotel considered a Luxury Hotel We found ourselves in a room over a booming club happening in the lobby of that “other hotel” where we were asked to “pardon the noise level for a couple of hours”

Wait, What? At $450 a night – me think not We called The Whitney Hotel at 7:00 AM next morning to break us out of jail, pun intended It was worth the add’l $200 to be treated like a human being Checking in – the kindest staff, doorman, wait staff – every level of service was amazing A GIANT thank you to the entire staff – and especially to Mr Kamil Alafandi for truly being the most gracious host and understanding our predicament This was a busy weekend with the Yankees in town, we knew we would be limited, Mr Alafandi showed us the only room available at that moment, to ensure we were okay with the location – and while we may not have had the best view in the hotel, we were so grateful for the level of care, service and peace provided by the team This hotel goes ABOVE and BEYOND! We will be back!

Feedback From Real Customers


The check in process was really annoying Since I booked this though another portal, there was an error & I did not get the check-in instructions There’s no lobby/ receptionists so calling the help line at 11PM was not fun

It took about 20 minutes on the phone to get the codes to my room and the buildingThe studio room is spacious and looks just like the photos Great room to have if you need a work station The bathroom is small but clean and updated ( note only a shower, no tub) The bed was comfortable but the sheets felt like paper, scratchy and cheap There was a mini fridge, kettle and coffee station that was usefulLocation is great and very walkable, hidden between the other brownstones A lovely neighborhood to walk around, eat & shop Despite those great things, I would not stay here again mainly due to the sheets and small bathroom


Hotel will not let you check in before 4 pm even though they list you can pay a fee to check in at 1 This is not a boutique hotel as advertised Everything is remote like a vending machine

No staff At this point it would be better to just go find a traditional chain hotel or nice local Airbnb owned by a Bostonian rather than some faceless entity

Jonathan Little

My wife and I stayed in the penthouse unit “Stellar Queen Room w/ Balcony” and enjoyed our stay The location makes it a wonderful spot for exploring the walkable Back Bay neighborhood with tons of food and shopping options The unit has its own private rooftop deck which had great views toward Boylston St

This property has no staff (imagine it as a rental on VRBO or AirBnB), though there is a cleaning crew that tidies up common areas and rooms after a guest checks out We let ourselves into the property with a code that was emailed to us, and leaving was as easy as closing the door behind us WiFi was decently fast and reliable There is no TV service, but a Roku is provided for using our own streaming accounts Parking was at the Prudential Center a few blocks away at $44 per 24 hours

Marcus Lewis

Great location, excellent service! The Boston Marriott Long Wharf is located right next to the New England Aquarium The location is great for catching a dinner cruise or taking a trolley tour, as both are available mere steps from the hotels front entrance The room was clean and fresh, with great bath amenities

The staff was friendly and kind The hotel features an indoor pool with a great outdoor sun deck There is a Starbucks in the lobby and the hotel’s in room dining is excellent!


Excellent location by the water Right next to the acquarium and minutes to the market Rooms were very nice and very clean

Very comfortable bed Team at the front desk were exceptionally caring, nice and professional Try to stay away from rooms by the atrium as sound echoes and travels to your room Pool was not appealing but works well for children Outdoor deck is a plus Hotel has food options and a convenience store

Kathy D

It takes a lot for me to think somewhere is a 5 but this hotel is worth the rating Spectacular location Beautiful updated rooms and great pool

Pool is on the 3rd floor with windows as walls on 3 sides so you feel like you aren’t in a dungeon Doors open out to a deck with chairs, tables and beautiful views and depending on the time of day they serve cocktails Staff was helpful and pleasant Overall would highly recommend this if you are going to Boston

A truly unique and pleasure to stay! From the moment you arrive you experience a unique musical experience with retro nostalgia from various music artists Cole, Annette and Chris at the front desk were so welcoming and friendly They took care to be sure we enjoyed our stay during the concert

I found the Ginkgo House on Harvard St to be a welcoming and cozy inn Situated on a peaceful and quiet area of Cambridge, the inn is very accessible to both MIT and Harvard campuses (as well as lots of parks, great places to eat, and even a Whole Foods all within a walkable distance) The friendly staff were especially accommodating and communicative and went above and beyond with their great service

Out of the three places I stayed while visiting the Boston area, the Ginkgo House was my favorite I truly enjoyed my stay and will return again the next time I visit Highly recommend!

Robin Hittie

Ginkgo House is awesome! From the friendly service to the beautiful facility and convenient location, everything about my stay was great! I was impressed with the genuine interest and attention I received–you don’t find that very often Also I appreciated the peace and quiet, no worries about other guests being loud and keeping you up at night I will definitely plan to stay at Ginkgo House whenever I am in the Cambridge area!

Taylor Mannette

This is the perfect place for those who want a very quiet stay Nice, quiet neighborhood too Very clean, cute rooms

Beds are very comfortable Full kitchen near the common area The only reason I knocked off a star is because there was nothing on the website that mentioned vaccination status, which we were only told the day of a few hours before check in However, when we arrived we were not checked for vaccination status, so we went through the effort of going back to get our cards for nothing However, we still enjoyed our stay

This hotel is recommended by our colleagues I love the location as everything is in walking distance from the hotel There is daily housekeeping

As a matter of fact housekeeping come in and fill ice for us every evening If I didn’t have to work during weekday, I would have enjoyed all the summer events more Definitely recommend this hotel I’ll update with more photos later

Chris Davis

My wife and I were married here 32 years ago when it first opened and it was spectacular We returned last week to have a drink at the terrace restaurant and after checking in and waiting for our table to be cleared, the host came back and told us that we had to order dinner not just drinks to be able to sit outside He asked if we were going to order food and we said not after this experience and left

Terrible customer service for what was once a great hotel

Celia Pearce

Summer in the City at the Harborwalk Terrace – Sitting outside with a view of the harbor listening to good music was great; food was delicious but overpriced, the staff is super nice but overworked The hotel is apparently too cheap to keep the venue properly staffed when they have a promoted weekly event they know will be crowded, which is a shame because it made an otherwise nice experience unnecessarily frustrating Considering this is an allegedly “posh” with a room rate of $700 + you’d think they could afford to adequately staff the event

Perfect location for seeing John Mayer at TD Garden 20$ taxi ride from the airport and there’s a taxi rank outside for an easy return Hotel within walking distance of many attractions

Loved the bar/breakfast area – quirky decor and a great view of downtown Boston – deal for relaxing in as the rooms are quite small The bed was very comfortable, shower was perfect – with luxury towels, but why was the sink in the room? Presumably lack of space I-pad controlled lights and TV very practical Staff pleasant Breakfast could have had more choice But overall- highly recommended

Laura Brissette

First experience with citizenM was great! Room was compact, but no more or less than what we needed I can see how the set up might not be for everyone, but I found the room comfy and inviting View was amazing and the location can’t be beat, especially if you’re in town for a Bruins game like we were

Price was great for those who want to spend less on a hotel but still stay in clean rooms and get friendly service from the ambassadors citizenM is now my go-to hotel in Boston!

Jessica W

One of the most affordable options in the North Station area without sacrificing quality of rooms and service The rooms are compact, but are cozy and contain everything you would need at a hotel I love the canteen area/lobby where you can work or relax while eating/drinking in a vibrant environment full of cool artwork

The staff are also very friendly and helpful This hotel is probably best for solo travelers or couples, and the location is hard to beat as it’s close to TD Garden and public transportation

I was quite disappointed with my experience Rude desk clerks, broken elevators, too expensive breakfast buffet ($1499) that would have been just okay if it was complementary

I was shocked to find out only when I arrived that they charge $20 per car per night on top of your room charge just to park at the hotel Our keycards barely worked in any of the card readers and required up to 10 swipes in the elevator before it worked We saw this with multiple guests, and it became a joke when multiple people were in the same elevator car, with everyone trying their own cards before we found one that worked The card slot for our room was only marginally better It was an issue with everyone, and the front desk never mentioned it was an issue Bed was comfortable but only had a paper thin blanket sandwiched between two sheets That’s a sheet on top of the blanket; it was odd There’s a massive construction project directly across the street that was very noisy but not nearly as noisy as the typhoon of a heater in the room Even with earplugs, my wife and I awoke several times There were also strangely zero pamphlets, menus, local guides, TV guides, hotel amenities/directories, or even a Bible in the room I won’t stay here again

Jennifer Kivi

Good location but VERY noisy and small bed!! The location is great and not far from downtown Boston The lobby was nice looking and check in was easy The “king suite” we had booked had a full-sized bed (not the relaxing accommodation one hopes for)

It was very easy to hear hallway noise and people in other rooms Additionally, they had large truck deliveries occur around midnight 2 nights we were there, which led to very loud banging as they moved large items on/off the truck


I am a travel nurse and stayed here for an extended stay I had an amazing experience! The front desk workers were always welcoming and helpful (especially with helping me find a subway route to my hospital) Cleaning service always did a wonderful job and the man who works at the buffet/dinner was always so friendly to everybody who came in!

I’ve been staying at this hotel for years this is my first time back since covidThey have done away with conciergeThey can no longer get doctors to the hotel, every other four seasons I stay at as a house doctor and conciergeThe irons are appalling, so cheap used to be good

Breakfast room now on the 2nd floor same view yet much smaller If you are on a table of 2 you have to sit on a tiny table in a small bar The chairs in the breakfast room are ikea like moulded uncomfortable chairsRooms as always are fantastic and housekeeping staff are exceptionalRoom service the only word to describe it is ‘overpriced shite’Cheap poor coffee shop on the first floorThey have thee most American thing ever a glass door called the vault… full of free candy and chips something more accustomed to a Marriott rewards customerNot the standard it used to be by a country mile Great location and facilities the health club is still fantastic The prices if anything have gone up yet the services have gone drastically downhill

Sam Faden

I have stayed here many times pre-Covid and cannot say one bad thing about this FS location From the ambiance, to the charm, to the service, and comfort, I always feel at home The fresh arrangement of flowers in the lobby that are refreshed quite frequently are a great bonus too

Viva Yoyis

Hotel is in a great location on the north end, all of Little Italy is walkable Toilet had same kind of door as the shower, only matte so you can’t see through, but you get no privacy if you’re noisy and someone else is in the room There was a speaker in the bathroom, so the tv was really loud in there, but not in the room

The coffee machine was really loud, sounded like it was about to die, but the coffee was good The service was exceptional, everyone was so nice and helpful The best part, it was quiet either people were quiet or the walls/doors were really good, because I slept uninterrupted It didn’t hurt that the bed was wonderful I would’ve given it 5 stars except for the strange bathroom Also, fun that we could see the Constitution from our room

John and Jody Vossen

Overall the places was fantastic My wife and I don’t usually spend this much money on hotels, but we took a special trip It was very nice walking in to a hotel room that screamed CLEAN

It felt brand new and well kept The location in the North End was perfect for hitting a lot of historic places on the Freedom Trails and for walking around the various streets just taking in Boston The only thing I wish we had was a fridge

Christopher Magielnicki

Recently stayed 3 nights, and the experience was perfect From the check in to the booking of the cab for the airport, it was just a wonderful experience Walking distance to everywhere

And I mean everywhere Beautiful rooms and views Comfortable beds , and can’t beat the Nespresso coffee See you next yearThanks to all the staff

The actual hotel was lovely, the room was clean, the staff was amazing But DO NOT eat or drink at this hotel One of the night desk employees went on and on about how amazing the breakfast was, online it said it was 20 a person

My family was on board to try it We got there at 830, on the weekends they open at 8 The food was BARELY warm It was powered eggs, bacon, sausage and some potatoes The pastries were are frozen and thawed The “chef special” was perhaps the grilled zucchini? It was a pitiful breakfast spread The coffee literally assaulted my mouth it was so burnt and bitter Than the second pot was a watery mess They brought us the bill and it was 31 bucks an adult and 10 for my 6 year old I spent 100 bucks on a breakfast spread that was no better than the free breakfast at a comfort inn And the wine prices?! Holy hell 2 glasses of wine cost over 55 dollars! And we didn’t get super fancy wine I looked up the prices on both and I basically paid for the price of the bottle with one glass Not worth the money I literally bought a 1299 for a bottle of wine that tasted just as good Great hotel, horrible pricing on mediocre food

Jessica Bailey

I booked this hotel specifically because it had a pool and hot tub While the room was as expected, bed comfortable

the pool left MUCH to be desired Bottom line, it was gross The pool water was brown legit brown Not to mention the yellow scum-line The hot tub was the same but be sure to add the floating hair balls and no joke, large sand/dirt granules covering the bottom As if it has never been vacuumed So disgusted and disappointed! All that said, the pool gets 0 stars (negative if that were possible) but the front desk staff were very nice, helpful at check in Oh, and paying almost $50/night for parking on top of the room charge is ABSOLUTE RIDICULOUS!! If I wanted to get real petty, I could also mentioned that the TV had no guide so you have to click into each channel to see what’s on Ugh Probably will NOT stay here again sure I can find something better than this in BostonI do not recommend this hotel if you are interested in the pool area

I absolutely love this hotel in Boston Staff are extremely helpful, and rooms and amenities are kept pristine The food served in the restaurant is excellent, and we grabbed several pizzas from there throughout our stay

Next to the check in area, there is a great place for cold food and snacks as well as a professional coffee machine Hilton diamond members get $18 credits per person per day for up to two people This means you are able to use your credit on any snacks or restaurant foodI really like that they have an indoor pool which is excellent and a pretty good sizeThey have four elevators that are really fast, and the close and open door buttons are extremely responsive The elevators have glass windows pointing inwards so that you could see the entire hotel as you go up and downOne of the best parts is that they have a free shuttle bus every hour that will take you to certain locations This is excellent if you need to be dropped off near the Harvard area and I don’t want to deal with finding an Uber or LyftOverall, this was a great hotel and a great experience and I would stay here again

The check in staff was super friendly The room was clean and comfortable with nice amenities The restaurant was delicious

The location is perfect Only criticisms which are not deal breakers- the room service was cold by the time it reached us, and the elevator is very slow But I would not hesitate to stay here again Beautiful lobby and the free bottled water was a nice, welcome amenity Thank you for hosting us!

Laura Wadsworth

Location Wonderful Room spacious and comfortable Just what we were looking for our 2 days here in Boston

The only request we had was an extra mini Fridge (because the one in the room is filled with beverages for purchase) which they said they would provide free of charge and we never received one Not a deal breaker Would definitely stay here again!

I’ve been staying here for a very long time If you stay for a few days you definitely won’t be disappointedGreat location, staff, rooms clean, kids friendly, and nice bathroom/showers Would recommend and may stay in other Millennium hotels because of it Also had iced chilled bottle water complimentary which came in super handy with the kids and it being so hot Small touch is a big thing

My husband won a free night stay from the Boston Boat show and we knew we would have a “nice” night However, we could not have had a better experience and enjoyed a fantastic night away Check-in was easy and welcoming, with a bottle of wine and some treats left in our room

The Room was beautiful, spacious, and the view was outstanding We grabbed a quick dinner out and rushed back to the room to enjoy our room It was a scorching, summer night (the best kind) but the gorgeous deck overlooking the marina and the sea breeze made it the best location to enjoy a glass of wineThe comfortable bed and cool room temp made for a great night’s sleep and the delicious breakfast, brought to the room and enjoyed on the deck, topped off the wonderful stayI can’t recommend Boston Yacht Haven Inn any higher, this is a special place!

We visited Boston for a family reunion and received a very reasonable block group rate on the suites Excellent location, close to public transportation, and the staff were super friendly and accomodating The Gym is clean and has the equipment I wanted

There is a Wednesday social with appetizers in the dining area Beautiful outdoor patio with a grill to relax with family and/or friends Breakfast is good, free parking and a restaurant a few steps away The suites are spacious and clean Had a wonderful stay Will not hesitate to stay here again

Mary Lee & Troy Brawley

Great location if visiting Cambridge or Arlington The availability of a restaurant and drugstore next door was a plus Room was clean and comfortable

While we did not use these amenities, we were impressed to see a nice exercise space and laundry facility Love that it is pet friendly even though this visit we did not bring our dog The proximity to family will make this hotel quite useful to us in the future

We’ve been to this hotel three times Every time we had a great time! If I could clone this hotel and take it with us everywhere we go, I would Here’s what we like about it:- rooms with two queen beds and a living-room space with couch, chairs, Tv, and working kitchen

it’s like an Airbnb that you don’t have to clean when you check out-every time we needed something, they accommodated us (eg, check out late; they offered the breakfast for our guests for free; one of on kids had an accident on the sheets, no worries here’s new everything without any negative commentary)-the breakfast is free and decently diverse-there is a laundry room and a gymThe only thing I wish they had was a working restaurant during the day so we can have lunch and dinner there and not have to make it a trip around town with our kids for food We didn’t have a car on these trips so a restaurant in the hotel would have helpedOverall, from us, a clear recommendation!Thank you!

We had our daughter’s wedding at the Row Hotel 2 weeks ago and they made our wedding a perfect day! They took care of all our needs to the finest detail! The food was so delicious Everyone was coming up to us and saying what a wonderful hotel it was You could cut the filet with a fork, so tender and juicy! The waiters were always available if we needed something during and after the meals, they were right there with our requests

The rooms were spotless, and the staff working at the lobby desk were extremely polite and very helpful The Row is only 7 miles from Logan and we had guests coming from Australia, Ireland and Canada So it was a quick drive from Boston! The whole area is so convenient and has so much to offer the guests The entire staff from the valet to waitresses in the restaurant downstairs for breakfast were very tuned into everything we needed THANK YOU ROW HOTEL FOR GIVING US A WEDDING WEEKEND WE WILL NEVER FORGET! A special thanks to Marissa, our wedding coordinator for doing an A+ job! We loved your hotel!!!!!

Dhanu Thiyag Ranjit

Our wedding at the Row Hotel was the best choice that we made! The hotel is modern and gorgeous, but more importantly, Marissa made the event planning fun and smooth! She was always so kind and supportive no matter what changes we wanted made She responded quickly and kept everything super organized! The Row ensured all dietary and taste restrictions were accommodated safely Marissa provided one-on-one care the week of the wedding taking care of even the small things like getting us up to our suite and the big things like making the decorations look better than we even envisioned! Marissa and her team were there throughout the event to ensure everything went smoothly and helped afterwards to even clean

We could not have picked a better venue to make our event perfect! Thank you!


This hotel isn’t worth the price tag My wife booked me a stay as a “mom’s night out” treat – it was my first and only night I’ve ever been away from my son so it was supposed to be a relaxing break for me She specifically reserved their room with the nice teacup bath tub

The tub is nice, very big and deep, but the water doesn’t get very hot – pretty much just lukewarm, like pool water They say they have a pantry on the second floor with “seasonal snacks” – it’s a shelf with jars of mints The hotel does not offer room service, which is odd The manager claims they offer room service for breakfast, but this contradicts what I was told during my stay and there is no menu or any information in the room to suggest they offer this My room had an adjoining door with another and the guests next door were a family with a baby Can’t fault them at all, but the walls must be insanely thin because I could hear them all night You’d think they’d do some more soundproofing I ordered a burger from the hotel restaurant to bring back to my room, it was one of only 5 menu offerings on what they said was an altered menu due to the storm – though no prior mention of reduction of hotel offerings was given before my stay or else I might have had the option to change my reservation After almost hour I hadn’t heard back about my dinner order, and no one mentioned an extended wait when I ordered, so I went down to the lobby, they were able to get my order after another bit of waiting, but the burger wasn’t well done as ordered The room itself was just fine They offer a bathrobe but no slippers The best part of the stay was probably the breakfast buffet, which was nice and the staff member managing it that morning offered excellent service If I had spent $100-$200 for the room I would’ve thought it was a fine deal But for the hefty price (nearing $500) you expect something higher quality It was a disappointing night away, and left me wishing I’d stayed home

Aylen Doucette

The location can’t be beat Close to the T to go straight into Cambridge and close to the reserve and minuteman trail One direction city, one direction choice suburban green life

Rooms have everything you need Self serve laundry on site Gorgeous park directly across the street Friendly staff Sound Carries but they give you white noise machines Bar has a moderate social scene Gym on site and blue bikes right around the corner Cute cafe an 7 minute walk 18 mi Ute walk to Whole Foods and essentials I love this spot!

Drew Acoff

The location was dope and the service was great, however the hotel was clearly designed in the least functional way possibleThe bathroom door is translucent, unlockable, and not even slightly soundproof The toilet is square for some reason (the human butt is round, square seats = pain)

There is one microwave per floor, next to the “hydration station” which was an ice machine and water machine, both lacking cups The TV was very slow to respond to the remote (it took 5+ seconds to react to each button click) Breakfast is not complementary and the pool is the size of a hot tubOverall it felt like the hotel itself was putting on the facade of a luxury experience but I feel like I was in a cheap motel

radja sharma
