The hotel room was small but everything was comfortable and a high standard. The single rooms really can only fit one person and their luggage. I was disappointed by the WiFi fee (a service that is usually freein all hotels nowadays) and the high cost of laundry services.
Staff was very helpful. The room was clean modern. As a small hotel, small meaning the rooms, the designers have maximized the use of the space to give guest all the amenities expected now a days.
I will return!
This hotel was wonderful. It is perfectly located near a huge grocery store, the first public library, Trinity Church, a Old Town Trolley Hop-on-Hop-off stop, and oh yeah several malls that are all accessible without having to take one step outside. My room provided me an excellent view of the beautiful Boston Public Library and the breathtaking Trinity Church.
On Tuesday, the space near Trinity Church was used as a Farmers Market. It was very quaint.
As an SPG member I was allowed free wi-fi in my room for my iPad and iPhone. A definite plus. As for the negatives, the window ledges inside were not cleaned, my bathtub inside was stained and appeared dirty, the corner behind the toilet had rust stains, and on my last day at the hotel a $4 magical water bottle that had been lodged in this one area of the fridge had been transferred to another spot and an additional bottle had been added. This was puzzling to me because I was not using the magical water when I was given two bottles of free water per day. Well, when I saw my bill the early morning I was rushing to leave the hotel for the airport, there sat a $4.29 charge for that stupid water. After speaking to two separate people, one with a heavy Boston accent who interrogated me, the stupid water was removed from my bill. The whole think was time consuming and just plain annoying.
Only stayed at the Taj for one night, and I enjoyed the stay. The rooms were large and clean but the hotel is definitely past it's prime. It has a faded grandeur and is in desparate need of an upgrade. I loved the wide corridors and understated elegance, the four poster was the most comfortable bed I have slept in, and the cleaning staff were lovely. Easy access to high end shopping, walking distance to everything.
Boston’s elite hold court in Back Bay’s shops, restaurants, and townhouses. Newbury Street hosts upscale boutiques and cafes, while locals flock to the Prudential Center for shopping and dining. The Central Library in Copley Square nods to the city’s imposing literary tradition and serves as the landmark starting point for the Boston Marathon. The Red Sox and historic Fenway Park are blocks away.
