Feels like Europe here, the lobby was beautifully appointed and decorated for Christmas plus there was always a cozy fire. Well located, well appointed and staffed by the friendliest and most helpful people you could hope for plus two nice restaurants to choose from. We were so comfortable that we chose not to go out one night just so we could enjoy our stay. Highly recommend!

This was our first stay at the Lenox. The hotel has a lot of character and great ambience. Everyone we encountered during out stay was friendly and helpful. We chose a superior king room. We were on the 9th floor. The room was excellent. The house keeping staff did a great job each day. My only suggestion regarding the room is a bit more space for clothing would be helpful. The closet was good size. However, there was not a lot of drawer space elsewhere. Our visit was for five days. We had to be bit creative when unpacking. There are three restaurants on the property. We only had an opportunity to eat at Solas Irish Pub. The place was busy on a Sunday night. We had a 20-30 minute wait. It went by quickly as we had a drink at the bar. Both of our meals were very good. Coffee and tea in the hotel lobby each morning is a nice touch as well. The hotel is also close to the train - the T. Easy to get wherever you need to go. We drove to Boston but never needed our car during the stay. A few nice restaurants within walking distance.

Loved this hotel . Our stay was amazing from start to finish. Hotel was in an excellent location and well positioned to access all of Boston . Reception and concierge staff were both helpful and well informed and nothing is was much trouble. We also ate in the Irish restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed it There is also a lovely small bar in the hotel which is nicely furnished and has a good atmosphere. We will definitely return

We had a standard room and it was certainly "standard." very dreary with a miniscule sized bathroom. The hallways are dark and also dreary. The main lobby is stunning in a 1920s sort of way. The staff is inattentive although the management keeps stating that they have friendly staff the contrary is true. Doormen stand around and visit with each other, but never pay attention to guests

I hardly every review anything. Good or bad. My husband and i like to stay in nice places when we do travel becasue we dont get to travel often any more. However, with that being said, I absolutely loved my stay at the Lenox hotel and could not wait to write a glowing review. The rooms were beautiful with an old timey feel. The staff went above and beyond and made my stay one of the best I've had in any hotel. For example, me and my children (one and three) were leaving the hotel restaurant and my one-year-old dropped her water cup right in the middle of the hotel lobby and the water exploded everywhere! I was so embarrassed and immediately apologized and look for something to clean it up. The front desk staff moved with grace over to the spill and assured me not to worry at all and the preceded to procure two beanie babies stuffed animals out of no where, one for each or my children! The staffed handled every moment of it without missing a beat and went above and beyond for my kiddos with supper impressed me. 5-stars

This hotel is just simply amazing! From the moment we arrived the service was outstanding. We travelled with 2 little ones and were gifted 2 cuddly toys which worked a treat for the younger gifts in our party. The hotel upgraded our room which was perfect, given our party size and amount of stuff we had. The hotel was clean, the staff were friendly, teas, coffees and bananas were given complimentary every morning. I honestly can’t fault it. The location was amazing close walking distance or few minutes walk from the each to use tube line.

Staff is amazing !! Old Boston feel and walking distance to everything. The room was great as was the service and the food. 2 bars. Needed to stay an additional night and they made it happen without having to change rooms. Would definitely stay there again.

When you drive 8+ hours and your car is full of luggage and boxes (family wedding), the mere thought of unloading the car and getting it all up to your room is exhausting. All we did was check in and the team of bellmen took over. We never touched a single piece until it was in our room. The morning coffee and bananas in the lobby were perfect as we ran out the door for a full day of wedding-related activities. We never walked past a hotel associate - housekeepers, bellmen, concierges, reception desk - without being met with a friendly smile and a greeting. The location of the hotel was ideal. It’s right at the Boston Marathon finish line. (The memorial to the bombing was kitty corner from the hotel) Plenty of restaurants within walking distance to choose from. We did have someone in our group thought they had forgotten something in the room after they checked out. They called the hotel and rather than entering the “black hole” of “lost and found”, she received phone calls from the head of housekeeping stating she had alerted the laundry service to be on the lookout. (It was subsequently found at home) Our next stay at The Lenox can’t come soon enough!

Room Tip: The hotel’s valet parking is pricy. The Park Hero app has much less expensive nearby options.

This hotel wins in service from the minute we stepped out of our car. We somehow managed to be out there at the same time as the owner, Dan, who helped my daughter carry in her backpack. Our room was ready early and they kindly put our small family in a corner room to give us some extra space. Perfect! Loved the welcome note and treats. These special touches make a huge difference in our experience. Throughout the entire stay we were super grateful by how well we were treated. Love all the local collaborations, esp. the coffee in the lobby in the morning. This hotel is full of character and charm in ways other hotels cannot compete. We left a 5-star hotel to come here and did not regret it. The experience, the car, the thoughtfulness are well beyond 5-star here. Love!

From the moment we stepped out of the taxi on arrival to the moment we stepped into our Uber ride to depart, we were treated with kindness, respect, and genuine interest in our happiness. Without exception the Lenox team was the friendliest and most accommodating group of people we have found in any lodging establishment, anywhere, from the bell staff to reception to housekeeping. Exceptional! We loved our junior suite: the comfort of the bed; its views from our 8th floor windows; the comfortable furnishings and the extra special touches, such as slippers and robes. If there is perfection in lodging, then the Lenox exceeds perfection in every way. The Lenox provides good dining options. The weekend brunch in City Table was such a pleasant dining experience. Finally, the Lenox's Back Bay location affords easy access to most anywhere you you want to visit while in Boston. An MTA stop is nearby.
