outstanding: the reason we come back

Clarendon Square Bed and Breakfast has become more for us than merely a great place to stay. My husband and I have stayed there multiple times. I think this last time in April 2018 was 3 or 4. We are in Boston often. Clarendon Square has become our "home away from home." It's the great location, the fantastic breakfasts, attention to detail, and more. We have one daughter in college at Boston now; and, a graduate student starting school this fall. Adam and Christine have helped us so much with helpful information about Boston. We will be back. You should check it out too.

Terrific spot!

This B&B is perfectly located -- walking distance to just about everything in downtown Boston, and near some great restaurants. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the staff is extremely helpful, and the breakfasts include quite a variety of delicious and healthy freshly prepared foods. There's even a pot of coffee for early risers. I would definitely recommend it, and plan on staying there again.

One of the Nicest Places We've Ever Stayed

My husband and I stayed in the luxury suite for three nights in early April, 2018. We loved it! The suite was beautiful, comfortable, and spacious. The bathroom was gorgeous--a true spa bathroom. We particularly appreciated the rooftop hot tub after long days of touring in chilly weather. We didn't need to use them, except for breakfasts, but there were three other common guest areas: the dining room, the parlour, and the library. All were beautifully decorated. The location was great: a lovely street lined with brownstones, just a short walk to the T, restaurants, and shopping. Stephen and Bobby were charming and welcoming hosts. If we ever return to Boston, we wouldn't consider staying anyplace else. This was our favourite accommodation in North America!

Amazing B&B!

The Clarendon Square is a gem! I used to live in Boston for many years and now that I have found this place to stay I will be back for sure. The hot tub on the roof is absolutely amazing and the breakfast, room and overall service were top notch. The location cannot be beaten as well.

What a find in South End Boston

Very cool interior design, gracious hosts, interesting guests, a wine fridge, and walkable to everything!

A beautiful place to stay

5 on March 19, 2018

We spent a wonderful and relaxing weekend at the Clarendon Square Bed & Breakfast, and have absolutely no complaints! It is conveniently located in the south End of Boston (very close to many restaurants, not far from Copley Square in Boston, and not far from the Boston Museum of Fine Arts), the room (a suite) was fabulous, super comfortable with sufficient light for reading, beautifully decorated and quiet, with the hosts/hostesses very helpful. The breakfast (breads and muffins, fruit, yogurts, excellent coffee, hard boiled eggs, etc.) was also very tasty and very attractive. The only (small) complaint was that the room was serviced in the late afternoon (on a Saturday), which was the time that we returned from our day out. Having the room serviced while at breakfast would have been ideal.

Again was perfect!! It is our second time there!! We loved!!!!

perfect anniversary

4.6 on March 14, 2018

This place is an absolute gem! Each room is detailed beautifully. It was the perfect anniversary get-away we were looking for. It was intimate and cozy, and the 24 hour access to the rooftop jacuzzi was a delight! We felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The hosts were gracious and so helpful with recommendations. It was certainly unforgettable, and we can't wait to come back!
