5 Star service
The Eliot Hotel is all class in a fabulous area of Boston. Our suite was spacious and well appointed. The only thing we didn’t like was the very limited tv options with a pay option for movies that is back to the old days of ridiculous hotel charging (a new-ish release kids movie was $19.99!!). The thing for us that sets the Eliot apart is service - everyone was polite and happy to help but more than that they went out of their way to make our children feel special. We hope to come back to the Eliot again.

Very good 8.0
Very Friendly Staff and Hotel in good area.
Hotel was within in walking distance to Fenway Park Baseball Stadium and also not far from Copely Square shopping. Nice area. Staff were great and very friendly/helpful. The room was clean and a good size for the 4 of us with 2 double beds and a double sofa bed. The reason for marking down in Condition is that the cupboard door hinges were broken in the coffee making area.

worn mattresses
The beds need to be updated you can see and feel the sides of the beds near nightstand have much wear and can feel the mattress loose there.

Enjoy this quaint hotel!!!
The Eliot resides in a wonderful location. Boston is a walkable city, and the location of the Eliot adds to the fun. What a great neighborhood. Upon arrival, it did not seem that the hotel was too full, but by the middle of the weekend, there was more activity. In fact, we might have has the third floor to ourselves but who knows? There were a few issues with the chrome cast in the living room, but the hotel quickly brought a new unit that worked well. In addition, the staff brought ice to the room when asked since they do not have ice machines. Furthermore, our room faced Commonwealth Avenue, and despite traffic and a thunderstorm, the room was extremely quiet. Overall, a great place to stay.

Best hotel!
This was absolutely the best hotel service we have ever received in our 37 years of life. They define what customer service is al about. Highly recommend this place and will def be back to this hotel whenever we are back in the area.

A Boston treat!
Fabulous hotel in the midst of everything! We were upgraded to a gorgeous suite! Unbelievable service. So friendly. Also a plus- it hosts one of the best restaurants in town- Uni. The one downside- a very clanky elevator a few doors down. I will definitely stay again but ask for a room far from elevator.

Poor 2.0
Disappointing and overpriced
Disappointing and difficult stay. 1. Valet. You’ll wait hours to get your car. The doorman asked if I would be taking me car out. I answered that I wasn’t because at that time, it was true. A few hours later the plans changed and it practically took an act of congress to get my car out and I was charged 20.00 for the priveledge 2. Breakfast. Ordered 2 continental baskets for a total of 50.00. I got a total of one small bagel, 2 mini croissants and a mini muffin. For BOTH baskets. The hotel is fine. But the inconvenience and just overall gouging of the customer is a huge turn off
