The Royal Sonesta Hotel in Boston, the capital of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is a nice, comfortable 4-star hotel. It is very well situated on the Charles River (Charlie River). It is near the Museum of Science, the Constitution Museum and famous Fenway Park. The Royal Sonesta Hotel offers all the services that a good 4-star hotel offers. The staff really is wonderful.
The property is situated in the very heart of the historical center, with an excellent location for those who wish to explore all the attractions of the city as well as surrounding areas. It also has superior rooms and suites that are fully equipped, including all the luxury amenities of the property.
Large, well-equipped hotel rooms with an excellent located and on-premise restaurants. Highly recommended and it's in a very good area. Boston is a small city and, although it has a subway, you can walk most anywhere.
If you're in Boston over a weekend, Afternoon Tea at the Taj Boston should definitely be booked just for the experience and delicious treats. Not to mention having it at a hotel that is the landmark hotel at Arlington and Newbury streets which overlooks the famous Boston Public Gardens. has been a long favorite experience. The menu includes a variety of options and quite an impressive tea selection, you would definitely want to try it all. The two tea rooms are classically styled to give you that English afternoon tea time experience while you take in the views of nearby fashionable Newbury Street, nicknamed the Rodeo Drive of Boston.
If you’re looking for affordable accommodations in Boston, Friend Street is slightly cheaper than the HI in this city. It is situated in a convenient area, just a short walk away from the TD Garden and train stations. It’s also walking distance to bars and to historic sights.
To get to the hostel, you have to climb a whole bunch of stairs. There is no elevator (at least none that were apparent), so those in wheelchairs will want to look elsewhere for accommodations. The people I encountered at the front desk were so nice! The common area is a bit on the small side, but that’s great in terms of meeting people. The kitchen only has a microwave so you can’t really cook food. Rooms have lockers and the beds are awesome. Why? Because they don’t squeak (that) much!
Some nice things about the hostel include complimentary breakfast in the cafe downstairs. The cafe itself (Friend Street Cafe) has an inviting, relaxing vibe and has affordable food (which is great if you’re a budget traveler).
I would stay here again.
