Offering 50 rooms for the guests, the Chandler Inn hotel can be described as boutique and European style. The location is Back Bay, so many landmarks such as Boston Common and Newbury shopping street are within walking distance. The Back Bay Station is very close, allowing you to access downtown and other areas of the city easily.
What people who stayed here liked about
Helpful staff– This is a common praise about Boston boutique hotels: the staff is great, there’s not a bad word to be said about them. I couldn’t spot a single review criticizing the employees, so they must be good in this property!
Comfortable beds – The hotel owners know their industry and know what the guests like. So, also in this hotel, they have invested in comfortable beds which many guests liked a lot.
Good location – While the hotel is not right in the middle of Back Bay, it’s still conveniently located close to the subway/commuter train station and all the sights one might be interested about in the area.
What people who stayed here didn’t like
Noisy – There were reviews complaining about noise in this property. Some people heard drunken singing at night from the pub. The best way to combat this is earplugs and asking for a room in upper floors – unfortunately, in this hotel, you’re bound to experience the bar noises if you’re staying over the weekend in the second floor.
Small rooms – Some guests compared the room size to a closet. This mainly affects people who have extra luggage with them. Furthermore, there was no fridge or coffee maker in the rooms as few pointed out.
Electricity costs extra – Yep, this one is strange, but if you want to use the power sockets in the rooms, they cost 2 dollars per night.
Fastest way to get to downtown
Walk 8 minutes to Back Bay station, take orange subway line to Haymarket. All in all, it takes 15-20 minutes.
