Disappointing first impression; valet quoted $29.99, I accepted and unpacked my car- “oops I meant $49.99” (!). Since I’m about inside I was in no mood to repack the car- fine. Room nice but next to the very loud elevator and the shower didn’t drain, pooled water (gross). Requested room change. Got upgraded to nice mini suite, quiet, shower drainage still a bit of a problem but all was overall better.

I wish to thank this guest for taking the time to review her stay. Prospective guests may find it helpful to know that the Eliot uses a nearby garage to park guest vehicles. The valet charge is $49/24 hours. The hotel chose to upgrade this guest to a suite upon check-in. I regret that the shower drain was slow; an unfortunate oversight by our usual very proactive housekeeping staff. It's gratifying to know that the new room we assigned was "overall better."

This is my new favorite hotel in Boston. It's beautiful and old school classy. The staff went above and beyond. We will be returning.

I used to stay at the Hotel Commonwealth whenever I was in Boston. This past weekend I was there with my sister to see the Red Sox play two games. I couldn't get a room at the Commonwealth so i decided to try the Eliot. Delightful staff! (You especially Kevin!) Wonderful, huge room! Much less expensive than the Hotel Commonwealth. I was truly and happily surprised. I will be staying at The Eliot Hotel for all my future trips to Boston.

From the time we arrived again, the last time we stayed here was over 5 years ago, we found the Eliot was still a ‘special’ hotel. The staff is alert and efficient, the doorman could not do enough to help us unload the car. In short this hotel should have 6 stars as it is beyond good.

Great location for Fenway Park

The room was clean and very nice. The only issue was the size of the bathroom. It was extremely small. I felt as though I was in a bathroom in a camper.
