Tired Hotel in Need of Uplift

Cons: see above -- close down for 6 months and renovate; you can keep the old charm effect but need to modernize.
A very tired hotel. Lighting in the rooms is very poor, the bathrooms are small, the fixtures old fashioned. There is nothing fresh or glistening. It's pretend old charm that has lost its pizzaz. Was not that way when it was the Ritz Carlton years ago. Lack of attention to detail: every single soda in the minibar had an expiration date that had passed months ago!

Hello Victor, thank you for making Taj your home in Boston and for your feedback. We have addressed the issues you experienced with your honor bar with our team and sincerely apologize for this embarrassing oversight. We are planning one of the most significant renovations in decades which will take place beginning late next year and hope you will be back to experience it. Thank you again!

Very elegant and covenient

Pros: staff were great and very courteous and the rooms were big and clean.
Cons: Put coffee machines in the room.
Location: Beacon Hill was just around the corner, The Public Garden and Boston Commons are just opposite the hotel. Shops and restaurant are very close to Taj.
My wife and I had a great time during our stay at Taj Boston. We had a great view of the Boston Public Garden which is just across the hotel.

Location, location, location

Pros: At night (around 8:30 ~ 9 PM), staff came and set up the bed for you.
Cons: Lighting in shower area is not bright enough.
Location: Boston Public Garden & Boston Common; shopping strip are right next to you; most of restaurants are within 10 ~ 15 min walking distance.
Right in front of Boston public garden. Awesome location, attention to the detail, and staffs are very friendly. Love to stay in the same hotel again for my future visit.

Comfortable old style hotel in a great location

Pros: Ambiance, location, human scale, excellent service and housekeeping. Up to date bath, quality linens and bedding. Good food.
Cons: Climate control. It was set to AC mode only, and we could have used a bit of heat during an unusually cool and rainy 3 days.
Location: In the heart of Boston across from the Public Garden. You'll find things to do.
If you like staying at old-style traditional hotels, you'll probably like the Taj. Chic and sleek it is not. More like visiting a favorite elderly auntie who never got around to updating her furniture, but takes good care of you from the moment you arrive. Like most urban hotels of its era, the rooms are a bit cramped. Our 1 bedroom queen suite overlooking the Public Garden had a terrific view and adequate space, once we got it. On check-in, that suite was not available for the first night, so we were shown to an enormous king suite with no view at all, and very little furniture. The manager made amends with complimentary breakfast for the rest of the 3 night stay. All in all we enjoyed the visit, and will go back again.

If "Eloise" had a vacation in Boston

If Eloise ever left The Plaza Hotel in New York City to go on vacation, she would go to the Taj hotel in Boston. She would delight in skipping across Arlington street to see the flowers and play in The Public Gardens. She would laugh as the patrons in Boston who had dogs took them over to meet the Doorman at the hotel after a walk to see the dogs perform their tricks and get a treat. She would look on at the people walking by the windows of the Bar while she was having tea at four o:clock. She would run along the wide corridors of the floor she was staying at. And most of all she would absolutely beam as everyone who worked in the hotel treated her not only as a guest, but almost as a friend. Eloise, you see, likes a hotel to be intimate. She doesn’t like a lobby the size of an airlines arrival terminal. She prefers something like the small hotels in Mayfair in central London. There is something she would smile about, when the person delivering her Breakfast asked about what she was going to do today. There are hotels and there are hotels, but the Taj Boston is something special. Kenneth Finn Bedford, N.Y.

A great value! ADA-compliant rooms are beautiful :)

Pros: Quiet, five-star service, gourmet indian food included on menu
My mother and I travel frequently to Boston for medical appointments. The Taj Boston is our home away from home. The ADA-compliant rooms are absolutely beautiful. Each stay there is like a mini-vacation. Perfect location. Elegant surroundings. Friendly, helpful staff. Fine dining. A great choice for us!
