Hidden gem in a gorgeous, central location

Stayed here for one night and wish we could have stayed for longer. The room was stunning, service was fantastic, and breakfast was a tasty spread. I especially liked the selection of teas in the morning and the iced tea and treats set out in the main area when we arrived. Would wholly recommend and can't wait to stay here again.

This is the best B&B we have ever stayed in! Fantastic neighbour with great restaurants and boutique shops. We really enjoyed the hot tub on the roof. The view was spectacular! We would definitely stay here when we return to Boston.

For some reason, this review app would not let me rate Clarendon as Outstanding in any category. If it would - my rating would be 5, 5, 5, 4, 3. The design aesthetic at Clarendon is phenomenal. Each room in the home is well designed (living, sitting, dining, etc) and the room we stayed in was one of a kind - with extensive closet space, a soaking tub, two headed shower, desk, living and sleeping quarters. We came in to jazz music which allowed us to relax right into our stay. The pre-stay communication was well done and thorough and I felt as though the Clarendon team had been very thoughtful about each component of their guest's stay. The location is walkable to many historic sites and restaurants - as well as shopping. Breakfast was casual but high quality and the tea selection offered was best in class. The option to take breakfast outside or in one of many living areas was very nice. We would definitely come back!

a paradise near the center of Boston

This is the second time we have enjoyed the hospitality of the Clarendon Square B & B. It is a gem! I love how this brownstone house has been renovated and beautifully decorated. Each room is unique and boasts its own flavor. The breakfast is bountiful and delicious and we are lucky to have the choice of where to enjoy it, either outside on the back terrace or in the formal dining room or in the kitchen nook. The staff, Adam, took good care of us. Thank you. We will be sure to return again!

Feel at home but better

Exceptional Hotel - Perfect for a weekend away!

I was pretty fortunate to spend the weekend here with family and friends to celebrate my 34th birthday in Boston. The entire team that Bobby and Stephen have collected have this indescribable positive energy that flows throughout the hotel. Every room and every detail was meticulously attended to in a way that made you feel at home (or at least the perfect home you wish you had). Thanks again guys for making this such a memorable trip!
