We got this hotel on a Secret Hotel deal, so we didnt find out we were staying here until we purchased the room, but we were pleasantly suprised! This hotel was awesome!! It was very clean and the staff was so helpful. It is also in a perfect location in Boston. We could walk everywhere from the hotel- some places were farther than others, but we walked to Boston Common, the Faneuil Hall Marketplace area, the Aquarium in the harbor, Newbury Street which had awesome restaurants and shopping. In case you have never been to Boston before, walking is the best way to get around. Driving there is impossible if you don't know where you are going. The streets are everywhere and s confusing! We learned this the hard way haha. There is a nice bar and restaurant right in the hotel and the concerge also recommended nice tours and restaurants elsewhere. There was a Maggianos and Davios right up the street which both had great food. When I come back to Boston, I'm definitely staying at the Back Bay Hotel again!
