Loews Boston Back Bay Hotel

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 guest rooms 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.

My first time stay at Loews Boston was wonderful. I’ve stayed at various other larger chain hotels and by far this was the best. From very friendly & helpful staff to great location, it was the perfect two night getaway!

All the staff were courteous and welcoming. Surprised to get cleaning service during our stay as so many hotels can't provide this. Greatly appreciated. The not so good: room seemed a bit worn. The shower was the real problem. Low water pressure and old fittings. But at least the bathrobes were nice and soft!

This hotel is first class. From the door staff helping you with your luggage and greeting you every time you walked in and out of the hotel to front desk staff being so attentive, Loews high standards show. Housekeeping needs some training. I had to ask for more paper cups and my extra blanket was thrown into a cubby of the furniture a few days… Read more

Housekeeping needs some training. I had to ask for more paper cups and my extra blanket was thrown into a cubby of the furniture a few days in a row and minimized the neatness and pristine appearance of the room when you returned from the day a bit disappointing.

The location, lobby and staff were great. The guest rooms are small and in need of an update. The leather finish of the headboard was peeling where it came into contact with the pillows. The pillows might as well have been non-existent as they were flat the second your head hit them. I had to wad it up to get any support. And the mattress was… Read more

The pillows might as well have been non-existent as they were flat the second your head hit them. I had to wad it up to get any support.

Very clean and friendly. Felt comfortable during my whole stay and was very accommodating when asking for anything. Was able to check in earlier than expected and had great recs for coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner spots. The area in South Boston is a little more quiet, which is nice if that's what you are looking for. Only a quick drive away… Read more
