    Best Hotel in Boston

    Great boutique hotel on busy Newbury Street. The hotel was conveniently located to all the shopping, restaurants, and attractions that we wanted to visit. The staff was quick to respond to any questions we had - I love their texting service. The room was what we expected for a boutique hotel - smaller than some other chain hotels, but it was clean and modern. I will definitely stay here again in the future.

    Great location-not great staff.

    My daughter and I came out for a weekend. The location was perfect! We could walk everywhere and we were close to so many great restaurants and wonderful shopping. The room was small bit served it’s purpose. The staff was not very friendly or helpful when asking for dinner recommendations. There was one friendly front desk person out of the 3 we encountered.

    Comfy and gracious

    This is my go-to hotel in Boston because the rooms are large and comfy, the hotel is small and unpretentiously boutique, and it is located a short walk to my family in the South End. The bar in the hotel is great and the staff is always low key, warm, and gracious. My second stay here was as ideal as the first.

    I love staying at the Newbury House when I am in Boston. It is charming, the staff is friendly and the location can’t be beat. My only complaint is the restaurant hadn’t reopened yet (due to COVID) so I was scrambling to find somewhere for breakfast. It would have been nice to have a grab and go bag even if there was no sit down breakfast.
