Oasis in Boston

This is a romantic and comfortable Inn B&B. The rooftop hot tub is the 'icing on the cake' here!! A lovely neighborhood near Back Bay Train Station/Amtrak. A must to stay here while in Boston!

Gorgeous romantic stay

Such beautiful, comfortable rooms, and the view from the rooftop hot tub is out of this world. Convenient to everywhere and right near Back Bay station.

An unexpected gem

In a city of big expensive hotels it was so wonderful to find this beautiful property to stay at that had all the personality and warmth that is lacking in the big hotels. I will definitely be returning on my next stay in Boston!

Couldn’t find fault with Clarendon Square.

Everything about Clarendon Square exceeded my expectations. Even prior to my arrival I received helpful information about getting there and how to access the house if I arrived after the manager had left the property for the night (which I did). The instructions to get in and find my room worked seamlessly. Clarendon Square is located in a beautiful street with easy access to everywhere. If you are reasonably fit, you can walk everywhere. Many quality restaurants are located nearby. My room had quality furnishings and the bed was really comfortable. Gowns are provided for your use. Quality toiletries are provided and extras like wine and beer are available at reasonable cost. Although I didn’t make use of the rooftop jacuzzi, it looked welcoming for those requiring restoration after a big day. Salvador and Melissa, the two managers, are friendly, welcoming and warm. The breakfasts were light and fresh - fruit, cold meat and cheese, eggs, juice etc. I am a single, mature female, travelling solo. Everything about Clarendon Square contributed to my feeling of safety and security and was a major contributing factor to my wonderful stay in Boston. Clarendon Square comes with my highest recommendation. You will not be disappointed.

Lovely overnight stay

We stayed for just one night and hope to return for a lover stay in the future. The property is beautifully done and our host Christine was very welcoming and helpful. Our room was a great size and gave a lovely view of the Boston. Breakfast was delicious. Highly recommended!

Outstanding Clarendon Square

We recently had a wonderful 3 night stay at this beautiful Bed and breakfast. Common areas were like walking into an interior decorators showroom. Wow factor from entering the front door. Staff could not be more attentive and informative. Thank you especially to Salvador who greeted us and suggested things to do and see during our stay. Our room was very comfortable and decorated in stunning style. There is a roof top area with hot tub where you can also enjoy the amazing sunset! The location of this bed and breakfast is great. Close to some amazing restaurants and shopping as well as many historical attractions that Boston is famous for. We would not hesitate to recommend staying here based on all the factors above. Loved it!!

Great choice in Boston

Lovely !

Entire experience was great ....except for the number of stairs! I was unclear on the steep and narrow stairs issue until I received a "welcome" email with details about checking in. Just a surprise... and occasional challenge over our three night stay.

Fantastic Stay

My husband and I visited Boston for the first time in early September and stayed at the Clarendon Square Inn. The room was spacious and the breakfast had delicious healthy options. Also Salvador our host was so helpful with local sight seeing tips and made our stay here even more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and family and whoever wants a truly wonderful experience. The location is also great for walking to restaurants and local attractions

Boston Getway

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.
