Boston Getway

4.6 on September 03, 2017

My husband and I enjoyed 4 busy days exploring Boston. How wonderful it was to return to our gorgeous and comfy suite at Clarendon Square Inn. The South Boston location is around the corner from trendy shops and restaurants. It's also an easy walk to the Prudential Building as well as the Back Bay T and train station, making it easy to get to the north end of town as well as surrounding areas.

Wonderful first stay in Boston in this beautiful B&B

We arrived under the week and had really good support from Salvador, who gave us advice where to go and nice restaurants for the evening. Also Steven and Bobby were really supportive about our upcoming journey. The B&B is well equipped and really good refurnished and clean. Our room was spacious and the rooftop is amazing! We would definitely go there again!

Perfect! Simply Perfect!

Clarendon Square is such a delightful privilege! For my finances, it is pricey but sooo beautiful. I was only in Boston for one night which allowed me to be able to afford it. It is everything a great upscale BnB could ever be. You would be remiss if you never stayed there!

Wonderful stay in Bostons South End

3.8 on August 13, 2017

We where traveling on our honeymoon and arrived under the week for just two nights but found the location really relaxing and well renovated. The terrasse, which you can sit in at breakfast, is so lovely and chilly! The hot tub on the roof even more! We also liked the size of our room, although it takes some time to go up the stairs in this house. The owner Steve and especially Salvador were really friendly and helpful to plan our day trips! We would definitely go there again!

Excellent Bed and Breakfast

This is an outstanding Bed and Breakfast! Beautiful building and fantastic service.

Sophisticated b&b

4.2 on August 11, 2017

The property is handsome, well-maintained, and located on a residential street in the South End. Restaurants and shops in easy walking distance. 2 parking spots in rear of property. Our room was on the 3rd floor front. Well-appointed, quiet, comfortable. Breakfast offerings better than expected, closely attended by concierge. Nice garden niche for alfresco breakfast, but not available on our stay due to rain. Concierges very helpful, always available. Had most contact with Daisy Martinez, who was excellent. There is a roof hot tub but we did not utilize. Be aware that there are many steps and no elevator.

The best B&B I have stayed in!

I absolutely loved my week here. I have no negative comments to make! I felt right at home from the minute I arrived. The owners and their staff are fabulous, so friendly and helpful. If your going to Boston and need a place to stay this is it.

One of the best B&B I have been to.

I have nothing negative to say about my stay at the Clarendon Square Inn. Stephen and Bobby were absolutely charming and Bobby definitely knows the best restaurants in town! All the members of staff were extremely helpful.

Outstanding Bed and Breakfast

My husband and I stayed here for the first time. It is gorgeous and luxurious with a delicious breakfast. The two innkeepers are fabulous and are outstanding hosts, paying attention to every detail, and making our stay relaxing and comfortable. The rooms and common area are spotless and have a warm inviting feel while also being modern and functional. We loved it and even invited the innkeepers to visit us if they are ever traveling to Hartford! (This is not something I often do). It was nice to be able to mingle with the other guests if we chose to, and they were all very interesting and fun people. Everything is walking distance and we didn't use our car once even though we had it. I will absolutely recommend this location to others and come back here again on our next trip to Boston. Outstanding!

Once again the Clarendon Sqaure Inn provides a stellar stay!

This is our favorite place to stay in Boston for so many reasons. The decor of the common areas to the rooms, the cleanliness, the warmth of the manger Gabrielle, the amazing roof top, and so much more. A true Boston experience not to be missed. We can't wait to come back - again!
