Rooms & Rates

The Colonnade Hotel is a chic property in the Back Bay neighbourhood, southwest of Boston Harbour and the North End.

Back Bay is an upmarket district of Victorian brownstone houses and high-end shops. The Prudential Center mall is across the road from the hotel, and Copley Place mall is next door. It's also in a good spot for sights: the hotel is 10 minutes' walk from the John Hancock Tower, a 62-storey observation tower, and the 19th-century Boston Public Library (free tours run daily). It is a 30-minute walk from Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. Prudential Station, on the Green line of the T (Boston's transport system), is right outside the hotel. The journey to Park Street, for ice skating at Frog Pond in Boston Common in the winter, takes 10 minutes.

The hotel's restaurant, Brasserie Jo, serves French dishes created by James Beard-nominated chef Jean Joho. Fodor's is a fan of their "fantastic salads", and recommends the niçoise. The hotel also has a rooftop pool (open Memorial Day-Labor Day), and a 1000-square-foot gym stocked with fresh fruit, towels and water.

Spacious rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows with views of historic South End or Huntington Avenue. In-room amenities include a Keurig coffeemaker and free Wi-Fi.

Travelzoo tip: The Holiday Pops 2016, during which the Boston Symphony Orchestra will play popular Christmas music, runs from 30 November-31 December. The Symphony Hall is 10 minutes' walk from the hotel.

From the press:

  • "The views are some of the main highlights at the Colonnade, as each room has floor-to-ceiling windows that (wait for it) actually open" -- Travel + Leisure

  • "There are many reasons to stay at the Colonnade, such as its handsome guest rooms, which are well equipped with both high-tech gadgetry and simple pleasures (like a rubber duck in your bathtub)" -- Lonely Planet

The room was large, clean and up-to-date. Staff was friendly, particularly the bell hops. The location was great. Close to Fenway and easy walk or T ride everywhere else.

The hotel is within walking distance of terrific South End restaurants, but worth keeping in mind the Colonnade's Brasserie Jo is a wonderful option at all times of day.

How friendly the staff was. We did have one rather chilly waiter in Brasserie Jo, but otherwise, everyone was delightful and went out of their way to help us.

Other Comments
The breakfast host at the restaurant Brassiere Jo was not very pleasant. When we where originally sat down, our table was a small and we felt cramped. We asked to change to another table and he was annoyed we wanted to change but did give us another table. The restaurant was not packed. It also took as asking a couple of times to get some service. Other than this experience we had a good time.

Hotel was great and the staff were very accommodating. And the location was excellent - the subway station was right outside the door.
