The Lenox

The Lenox boutique hotel in Boston, Massachusetts.

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.
