Taj Boston

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • A top location: the intersection where the high-end shopping of Newbury Street meets the Boston Public Garden
  • Traditional elegance and great staff -- expect turndown service and, in suites, fireplace butlers
  • Standard rooms are nearly twice the size of the Boston average, with L'Occitane toiletries

Map & Directions

The hotel is one block north of a Green Line train station, which connects with other lines within one or two stops to reach Amtrak stations or the train to the airport. A taxi from the airport takes about 30 minutes and costs about US$30.

It never hurts to follow in the Ritz's footsteps, and when Taj took over this hotel from the Ritz, it inherited a top location and graceful bone structure. The look is classic upscale: heavy drapery; traditional furnishings; gold, brass and marble accents. Not too trendy, with plenty of space: The standard room is nearly twice the size of the Boston average, and suites are huge.

All suites also come with wood-burning fireplaces, complete with a fireplace butler. Fodor's selected the hotel's afternoon tea service as one of Boston's best.

Guests consistently praise the accommodating and friendly staff as well as the neighbourhood. Right across the street is the Boston Public Garden, and the Boston Common is within a five-minute amble. The hotel is at the end of Newbury Street, lined with some of the city's swankiest shops.

The fireplace was the main selling point for me. The room was simple and nothing special.

The location can’t be beat! The rom was nice. Staff were pleasant and efficient. The only negative was the Cafe. The prices are ridiculous.

I, Michael, booked the room for my wife, Dorothy. Upon her arrival they would not let her check in without an enormous hassle. They were unfriendly and unresponsive to her concerns even though she had the booking print out from Travelzoo. It was eventually resolved but the stay at the Taj had been irrevocably ruined. Won't consider them again.
