But according to recent guests, what makes a stay at The Eliot Hotel so exquisite is the exceptional customer service.

Afterward, unwind in your luxurious digs, decorated in warm, beige tones and outfitted with flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi, stocked minibars and beds with down comforters.

    The Lenox Hotel
    Boston, MA
    1.2 miles to city center
    • Free WiFi

    4.5-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    The extravagant Lenox Hotel sits within walking distance of the high-end boutiques of Newbury Street, and beloved cultural attractions like the Museum of Fine Arts and Boston Common are also nearby, making it an ideal lodging choice for visiting tourists. Recent guests say that the hotel's convenient location is one of its best features, although the elegant decor and friendly customer service also earn high praise. The only downside, according to some travelers, is the pricey fee for on-site parking. After a long day of exploration, unwind at City Table, the hotel's intimate dining venue, or at Sólás, the hotel's authentic Irish pub. Then retreat to your stylish accommodations, which boast high ceilings and plush linens (not to mention working fireplaces and stunning views overlooking the Charles River, in some rooms).
