Best Place to Stay in Boston!

Clarendon Square Bed & Breakfast made our stay in Boston a memorable one! It was the perfect location for business and pleasure. We could walk to great restaurants in this lovely neighborhood, relax at the Inn as well as enjoy the rooftop view and spa. You can't imagine the incredible view you get for sunset! Can't wait to stay again!


Wonderful experience in Boston

This was our first time visiting Boston and we were so happy to be staying at The Clarendon Square. Such a wonderful location and a warm welcome.


Lovely B and B in the South End

Clarendon Square is a lovely B and B located steps from the T and an easy walk to sights and dining. Roberto and Bobby were the staff that I met, and they were both warm, welcoming and full of great information about things to do and how to get there. My room was lovely, and the linens and towels were top quality. Breakfast every day was excellent, and hot tea and cookies in the afternoon was just the thing to tide me over until dinner after a long day walking around the city. The Inn even provided a local restaurant map with awesome suggestions! I will be back the next time I visit Boston.

Great stay at Clarendon Square in September. Walking distance or T to Fenway! Fabulous service and beautiful, clean and comfortable decor. Stephen and Bobby were great hosts and Lydo was most attentive. Stairs might be a challenge if you never use them, but aside from that, we can't see any reason to stay anywhere else!


Lovely, Lovely B&B!

For my boyfriend's birthday, a year ago, I decided to take him to Boston (He had never been!). I know that seems like a long time to wait to write a review but honestly the memories this B&B left are still as fresh and delightful as ever! While planning the mini vacation, I was looking for a place to stay that wasn't "outdated and gaudy" (as most B&B's are...ugh!) but still had very, very tasteful, lovely decor...well I found it! This place is perfectly, meticulously decorated! The whole house was warm, welcoming and absolutely beautiful, especially our suite which was breathtaking! Our innkeeper - Liz - was the most helpful, kind person and made sure we knew exactly where to go out to eat, and what sites to see! The whole experience was an absolute joy and we would recommend this B&B to anyone headed to Boston! ~ Jessi


Would definately stay here again!!!!

The Clarendon Square Inn is very quaint and beautifully decorated. The location is fantastic - on a nice, quiet side street, yet very close to everything! The breakfast was great, the staff very friendly and helpful! And of course our favorite was enjoying the roof top jacuzzi with an incredible view of the city!! A great value that was very reasonably priced.


Wonderful getaway

My husband and I stayed here just after Christmas and loved every minute of our two-night stay. Lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance, the bed and linens were heavenly, and Stephen and especially Bobby were very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. We took full advantage of the rooftop hot tub even in the freezing weather; the view was amazing. We lucked out, too, with our fellow guests at breakfast and really enjoyed getting to know them.


Classy,Elegant With an Outstanding Rooftop Hot Tub!!
