Boston, USA

The hotel

Once home to the Boston Police Headquarters, Loews Boston Back Bay Hotel is a haven of charm, sophistication and traditional New England hospitality, right in the heart of Boston's city centre. Formerly home to the old Boston Police Headquarters, this 1920's landmark is a piece of history in itself, a magnificent tribute to the city's long forgotten past. Ideally situated between 3 of the city's most sought after neighbourhoods, the South End, the Theatre District and the Back Bay, this hotel is the perfect place to hang your hat after a hard day of exploring. This hotel might be convenient, but it's much more than just a base. Each of the 225 guestrooms combine luxury, comfort and elegance to ensure the most comfortable stay. As well as state-of-the-art facilities, each beautifully renovated guestroom features soft lighting, modern decor and furnishings and decadent Frette bed linen. If you can bear to leave the comfort of your room, why not mingle with the locals and get a feel for the real Boston as you sample some delicious New England fare at the Precinct Kitchen and Bar, or venture out to enjoy a spot of retail therapy at nearby Newbury Street.

We were in Boston for a concert at Fenway Park and found the hotel overall a quality place. The staff was very courteous. We found the hotel to be in a great location to get around the city. The restaurant and lounge were impressive. The room was very clean and comfortable. We felt very safe and the hotel has card key activated elevators. The only issue we had was the hot water. We checked in late Saturday. In the morning when we took showers and the water was luke warm at best. We thought it may take bit longer for the hot water to catch up but never did. We were in hurry so we made the best of it. We reported it to the front desk when we checked out. Ryan at the desk was courteous and apologetic. The remedy was that the hotel would take care of us on our next stay. Not sure what this meant but I guess if we are there again I will find out. Read less

The hotel was in the old police station and was very centrally located. The check-in process was quick and painless and the staff was overall very polite and even had recommendations for us. The rooms were specious if a bit outdated. Overall it was a comfortable stay and I would come back.

The hotel was great for the Priceline price we paid. I would have been disappointed had I paid full price. Staff was wonderful but rooms are tired and bathrooms especially could use updates. It was clean, just old feeling.

The hotel lobby and room was clean and it is a well kept property, awesome front desk -valet staff (super helpful), coffee in lobby 24/7 was a nice touch, valet is expensive but it’s Boston so it’s expected! I definitely will stay with you again
