Quaint Bed and Breakfast

I wish there was more parking on site. This was the only downfall. Beautiful room and service was wonderful!

Lovely Boston Retreat

We enjoyed a couple of days in Boston at the end of our holiday and were pleasantly surprised by the lovely room, excellent attention to detail and lovely service at Clarendon Square B & B. While the room was a delight the icing on the cake was the wonderful rooftop hot tub with spectacular views of Boston which we enjoyed each evening.

Quiet Getaway in Boston

3.8 on April 01, 2017

My husband and I enjoyed a nice, quiet getaway in Boston. Our room was clean and comfortable and attractive. The only drawback is that the closest parking garage is a good quarter mile or more away. However, that is also a plus, because the inn is a bit secluded on a quiet street of brownstones, with just a small plaque to let you know you're in the right location. As long as you can manage an easy 10-minute walk, you can visit the Prudential Center and other sites without needing to take an Uber or bring your car out of the garage. The inn is a great mix of classic and modern, and it is very clean! Breakfast was fine--nothing fresh-baked, but many options available. I'd return gladly!

Not bad

Cute rooms, great value for an alternative to staying at a traditional hotel. Staff is fruendly and helpful. Sheets had unidentified stains on thrm. Hot tub was a nice touch but nothing to write home about. Breakfast was underwhelming.

Hidden Gem

I've only stayed in a B&B once before, years ago, so I was a little apprehensive. This place is gorgeous! From what I've seen, all their rooms are very clean, well decorated, and spacious. I never got a chance to take advantage of their onsite dining. However, the B&B is within walking distance of some nice pubs. Clarendon Square is definitely a spot I will return, whenever I'm in town. Thank you for the hospitality.

I loved this inn located in a gorgeous brownstone in the South end. The rooftop hot tub is to die for. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the hostesses we met were lovely. The continental breakfast was great and complete with delicious coffee drinks. I liked the location very much, great neighborhood in walking distance of Newbury St, Prudential Ctr, etc. Great place to stay, highly recommend!

Reasonable Price for Something Different

Hotels can get boring. This is something that's far from your typical hotel. Very nice room. Hot tub could be cleaner and so could the linens on the bed (found lipstick stains and a mysterious stain). Mediocre breakfast.
