We stayed there for one night in November. The hotel is extremely clean and located in a fun part of Boston. There are many restaurants with outdoor seating very close to the hotel. The rooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms spotless . If you have a car, reserve a spot in the back.Highly recommend!! They took all Covid precautions . This will be the only hotel for us in Boston

I booked a "luxury double" through Expedia and thought I was getting the room depicted in the photo labeled "luxury double." Who wouldn't? The photo depicted a room with 2 floor to ceiling bay windows and a fireplace. However, the room we got was tiny space with an equally tiny window, not a bay window, and no fireplace. There was nothing "luxury" about it. While the hotel is generally nice (great breakfast) and I may stay there again, I give it poor marks for misleading advertising. I was told at the front desk that they only have ONE double room in the entire hotel that looks like this. So buyer beware, maybe you'll be lucky and get the one in the photo, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Response from David Garabedian, General Manager at Newbury Guest House
Responded 19 Oct 2020
The hotel is located in three connected historical brownstone buildings and the configurations of the doubles rooms can vary based on the architecture. The hotel has 7 double rooms of which 5 are located where the brownstone either has a bump out for a bay window or two large windows and a fireplace in the center. The hotel expanded and added 2 new rooms which have one or two standard windows overlooking Newbury Street. It is inaccurate to state that the hotel has just one room looking like the picture. We also don't describe all the doubles all having bay windows, we advertise them as a luxury double. We never intend to mislead our guests and work incredibly hard to create a great experience for all our guests everyday. If you have any questions regarding a room feature or amenity please feel free to call our guest service team.

Newbury Guest House is the answer for anyone looking for a boutique hotel with food, a great location, clean and charming rooms, and great staff. You can get anywhere you may need to go within a short time. For instance, I walked to the Museum of Fine Arts, the JFK Library was a short Uber ride as was the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. If walking is all you want to do then this is also the place. Newbury Guest House is located amidst all the shops and restaurants.

This hotel was lovely! We have stayed at many hotels in Boston and it is always overpriced. This hotel was reasonably priced (for Boston) and was in a beautiful location right on Newbury St among all the shops and a block away from Copley square. It was also very close to the T allowing for quick travel to various locations. The king room with bay window was spacious and clean. The view onto Newbury made you feel like you lived in Boston. Also, there were some tasty cookies in the lobby. We would definitely stay here again.

My family and I stayed the weekend at The Newbury Guest House. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations. We had a room overlooking Newbury street and it was fun to take in the view and people watch. So convenient to walk around, shop and dine. Check in was quick and the staff was friendly. The rooms were light and airy with some classic touches such as the mantle and cute desk. The rooms were clean and comfortable. This is not your generic hotel, it has character. I was so impressed I took photos! If you are looking to enjoy the city and want to be able to park your car and leave it, this is the place to be! Loved it!
