I rated Godfrey 4/5. The property is immaculate and stylish, but moreover, the staff was top-notch. From housekeeping staff to front desk to the lounge, everyone took such a great care of the guests. I also loved how the lobby opened into a very lovely coffee house where I spent my mornings. I didn’t select 5/5 because, much to my surprise,… Read more
I rated Godfrey 4/5. The property is immaculate and stylish, but moreover, the staff was top-notch. From housekeeping staff to front desk to the lounge, everyone took such a great care of the guests. I also loved how the lobby opened into a very lovely coffee house where I spent my mornings. I didn’t select 5/5 because, much to my surprise, the area is lacking in good restaurants/shops/bars. You’ll may need to take a train to Back Bay. This is no reflection of the property itself, but does affect the overall experience. Read less

I had the pleasure of staying here for a quick girls weekend. The entire staff went out of their way to make sure my friends and I had a great stay and it did not go unnoticed. From sending up champagne and chocolates for the birthday girl to making sure we were fully stocked with towels, water and whatever else we needed. The hotel was immaculate and so comfortable. Amazing location - right in the middle of everything. On the way out to catch my Uber there was a bit of a road block and the staff went out of their way - walking me and my luggage two blocks down the street to find my driver. Now that’s service! I’m so happy to have found my new favorite hotel! I can’t wait to go back! Read less

Great location, (Walking distance to Faneuil Hall) nice room & great service. Everyone from the front desk to the valet who parked our car was fantastic. We had a few cocktails at the hotel bar and they were top notch.

Everyone was friendly and professional. The hotel and our room left a very clean impression. The restaurant next door, as well as the coffee shop, was a great bonus. Location was walking distance to shopping, historic sites, Little Italy, and Chinatown. Awesome! We are so happy with our stay in Boston and would certainly recommend Godfrey hotel. Read less
