First time at this gem of a boutique luxury hotel in Boston Common. We stayed for two nights. Wish it could have been longer. Couldn't have been in a better location as a springboard for what this great city has to offer, even during these trying times.

First time at this gem of a boutique luxury hotel in Boston Common. We stayed for two nights. Wish it could have been longer. Couldn't have been in a better location as a springboard for what this great city has to offer, even during these trying times. The room, lobby and hotel environment were extremely clean and we felt safe. The level of service we received from Jordon was exemplary and consistent throughout our stay. Can't wait to return to The Godfrey! Read less

My husband and I wanted to get away for the weekend to celebrate our Anniversary. February is a very cold and windy month. The Godfrey Hotel offered all we needed without having to step out on the cold. Staff was amazing, extremely kind and very helpful. We decided to try their restaurant, first it is connected to the hotel that makes it so much more convenient.We didn't have to take a taxi or walk in the cold. The restaurant name is RUKA, trendy atmosphere, drinks were amazing and food was SPECTACULAR!!!! Our waiter was the most helpful waiter we had in a very long time. Since it was our first time there, we had lots of questions, he took his time to answer and give us some advice on what to order. We didn't know they had a cafe also connected to the hotel.. WHAAATTT??? We decided to try, and oh my Lord.. I had a Latte and my husband a Cappuccino along with some delicious pastry... You really don't have to get out, it worked out perfectly for us since it was soooo cold outside. Oh, and the location is everything. If we wanted to go shopping, watch a Broadway show or simply walk and enjoy a beautiful night in Boston, we could've done it without having to take transportation. PRIME LOCATION.!!!! In conclusion, 100% recommend this hotel, you will not be disappointed! Read less

Had to spend a night in Boston just after the hotels opened up after quarantine. The service was great and I felt very safe there. Room and facilities were super clean. And they were helpful when I had a question about my bill. Will definitely stay there on my next trip to Boston.

We didn't know what it would be like staying in a hotel during Covid-19, and we were glad we chose to stay at The Godfrey. The Godfrey Hotel is a beautiful hotel located in a central and walkable part of town. The staff was very friendly and accommodating during our stay. They set towels, coffee, and water outside our door which made us feel comfortable and safe staying here. We can't wait to stay at The Godfrey Hotel again and experience Boston after Covid-19!
