Many hotels reside in the Boston’s Back Bay area, The Lenox being one of them. Despite its grandiose size (over 200 rooms available) the property is still called a boutique hotel due to its tastefully designed interiors in rooms and public areas. Popular sights such as Copley Square are a stone’s throw away from the building.
What people who stayed here liked about
Very good location – The hotel is not in Downtown but in the upscale Back Bay area, a block away from the popular Newbury Street. The Copley subway station is also next door, taking you to other parts of the city quickly.
No noise from streets – Several guests said this hotel has got sound insulation down. They reported no noise from outside despite its central location by a busy street. Even the surrounding rooms caused no disturbances, although some people said the AC unit is noisy if used.
Rooms – Guests left comments that rooms were spacious (even for four people) and beds were comfortable to sleep in.
Friendly staff – For a first class boutique hotel this is self-evident, but also in The Lenox staff was praised as extremely helpful and friendly.
What people who stayed here didn’t like
Parking costs a lot – There weren’t too many negatives listed about this hotel, but expensive parking was one of them. It costs 49 dollars a night
Can’t make coffee in rooms – A common complaint, also this hotel doesn’t feature tea kettle or coffee machine in the room (yet you can get them free at reception in morning).
Price – The Lenox has one of the best ratings of Boston hotels, but this comes at a price. The rooms are not cheapest so you’d better have your finances in check if coming to this hotel!
Fastest way to get to downtown
Walk 3 minutes to Copley subway station, take green line to Haymarket.
