Just spent 4 nights at the FS Boston. Our stay was wonderful. The hotel was lovely and in a great location. An easy walk to restaurants and to the subway. The hotel also sits across from Boston Common park which was great to walk around. The service at this property was fantastic. Everyone from the front desk for check in to the doormen and the young men at the morning coffee shop. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Four Seasons is known for their service and this hotel was not a disappointment. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. I would definitely recommend a stay here...you won't be disappointed.

We have stayed at this Four Seasons many times ( and I have reviewed it before.)

We have stayed at this Four Seasons many times ( and I have reviewed it before.) We love the calm, luxury vibe, the bright well taken care of rooms with oversize windows (love the park facing rooms,) the friendly staff, the indoor pool area which provides a nice place to relax, and the location. The Sanctuary ( an outdoor public space added during Covid ) is a great addition. However the former restaurant, Bristol, where we ate breakfast has now been closed for a year an a half and at this point for the prices the hotel is charging I really feel is no longer acceptable. On recent visits we overlooked it because we like the hotel so much and just went to grab breakfast at nearby places on Newbury and Boylston,but this past weekend Boston was packed and those places had crazy long lines that we simply did not have time to wait on. The hotel has added Sotto Vento a sort of fast food breakfast place ( just pastries and egg sandwich to go but very limited) but there is no place in the hotel to sit and get a healthy breakfast ( oatmeal, yogurt, toast, fruit..) The only option is to order room service. We do not enjoy eating in the room so actually attempted to order room service breakfast to the sanctuary but we were told that would take 45 minutes. We needed to be somewhere and did not have time to sit in the sanctuary and wait 45 minutes. We have overlooked the lack of a breakfast option the past few visits but this time it was just really problematic. I think the lack of a restaurant has simply gone on too long at this point for a hotel of this caliber ( over a year is not OK) There were also signs in the elevator that there was a buffet on the 5th floor on weekends- we went to the 5th floor it was empty. I asked about the buffet and was told they did not have it this weekend ( which again is not OK the hotel was full.) We still love this hotel for all the reasons mentioned ( and in my previous review) but strongly feel that at a luxury 5 star hotel at 5 star prices, a healthy civilized breakfast on premises should be available to guests. Especially in a city like Boston where there are many other options for luxury hotels. We will try one of those other hotels on our next visit if the breakfast situation is not rectified. Read less

If you want the perfect place to stay for Boston Marathon, look no further. The Four Seasons is the best! The service is impeccable. The location is superb, especially if you are running the marathon. Everything was wonderful. I look forward to returning in April 2022.

Excellent hotel located conveniently across the street from Boston Public Garden. Easy walk to shopping, Boston Common, Newbury Street. Great service, though I can say after staying at this Four Seasons, The Mandarin & the Ritz Carlton (all in Boston) all within a few weeks of each other that staff is more sparse than normal. We loved having a… Read more
Excellent hotel located conveniently across the street from Boston Public Garden. Easy walk to shopping, Boston Common, Newbury Street. Great service, though I can say after staying at this Four Seasons, The Mandarin & the Ritz Carlton (all in Boston) all within a few weeks of each other that staff is more sparse than normal. We loved having a nightcap in the bar. Parking is tricky as Boylston St is one way so watch the signs! Read less

I love the fourSeasons and how they make their bed. It’s the best sleeping experience ever had. And their staff is out of this ward. The new decorations and improvement is gorgeous. The location is perfect- facing the bark is a heaven.
