Taj Boston

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • A top location: the intersection where Newbury Street, with its shops, 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
  • "Everyone from Elizabeth Taylor to Winston Churchhill has dined at the Cafe at the Taj" -- Fodor's

"Old-school elegant [with] glorious views" -- Fodor's

It never hurts to follow in the Ritz's footsteps, and when Taj took over this hotel from 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 (seasonal through April 15), complete with a fireplace butler. Fodor's named the hotel's afternoon tea service as one of Boston's best.

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