Perfect base to explore Boston for a few days. Room was not massive but was immaculately clean, very comfortable and had everything I needed after a hiking trip through New England. Reception staff were polite and charming and happily stored my bag after checkout for the day before I got a late evening flight.
I was initially confused on arrival as YWCA signage is still prominent on the outside of the building but apparently it is the site of the old YWCA and the signing has been kept for historical reasons.
Midtown is a decent location, close to the T and easily walkable to Newbury St etc. The room was spacious, the bathroom not so much. It could've been a bit cleaner (stray hairs here and there) but it was totally fine. We only stayed one night. Self park was great.
The hotel is right at the center of Boston, close to both Chinatown and Prudential shopping center, so it's exceptionally convenient to get around. The facilities are new, the staffs are friendly and helpful. Generally a very good experience.
We had a problem with accessibility in the shower, didn't receive the room I ordered. However, Juan at the front desk helped a bad situation into something acceptable. Frank, the concierge, gets 5 stars. He was extremely helpful and spoke to my daughter (she's in a wheelchair) not to me (mom). If others would realize that just because someone is in a wheelchair doesn't mean that they can't talk. ( I feel better saying that - please pass it on.) The hotel had some eating options & a couple of malls, attached. We did everything on foot & subway, 4 days worth. There is quite a bit in this area.
We were in the area for a wedding and wanted to spend a night in Boston. Searched for a hotel that would be close to the Freedom Trail and choose the Charlesmark. Although small, it was very comfortable and the staff was welcoming and very helpful.
The Fairmont is a great hotel close to everything in downtown Boston. Less than a block for a "T" station and bus routes as well. A quick bus or cab ride in from Logan airport and you're set to enjoy all Boston has to offer, from good food, to shows, to historical sites and tours.
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.
