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.

Close to area of Boston we were interested in

Poor lighting in rooms. Upgraded from deluxe double room to suite. Windows looked out on dump. People were courteous.

Great hotel in a great location

Pros: Spacious room and great location to Newbury shopping.
Cons: Valet hours don't start until 7am
Location: Great shopping and restaurants and central to colleges
Very happy with the hotel and the location. Staff was very kind and attentive. Had a little snag getting my car from valet before standard hours, but staff was helpful and solved the problem with satisfaction. Would definitely stay there again.

Shopping in Boston

Hotel was in good location for shopping. Any store you can imagine from high end to bargains. Close to T. Bathroom was extremely small. Beds and pillows were to soft. Hotel was very accommodating.

What a beautiful Hotel

Pros: The beds - I haven't slept that solid in a very long while.
Cons: Nothing that I could think of.
Location: The Eliot is in the Financial Section of Boston. Everything is just a walk or cab ride away. The Boston Duck Tour was a blast!
The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. We had an awesome time! The room was beautiful, the water for the shower was hot, the beds so comfortable - the food was very good - (I just love room service!) - What a great and very much needed 3 day vacation in a beautiful City.
