The College Club of Boston (CCB) which is located a"stones-throw" from the Public Garden has many unique features making it a very special place to stay. Take, for example, the gorgeous 19th Century architecture a inside and out. Also, consider, the spacious well-appointed rooms with beautiful furnishings. A healthy continental breakfast is offered each morning and the staff is knowledgeable and kind - always ready to assist. My husband and I have visited CCB several times. Last weekend we were there to celebrate his birthday. I ordered a cake from the Modern Bakery and our hosts at the Club cheerfully agreed to keep it in the refrigerator until we left for the birthday dinner. Everything about the College Club of Boston is impressive. But, perhaps the most impressive part is the concept on which it is based. The story dates back to the late 1800's when the founders - a group of women - purchased the property to form a club that would nurture them and benefit the community as a whole. Club members continue in that spirit today. My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Club and hope to return many more times in the future.
When first called to book room,the man was very nice. I said we would be early,he said,double park bring bags in,then come back later & check in.So we arrived early,ran in with bags. Went to office a woman was on phone,we waited a min or two, then she said I'm on the phone go in the hall.(Thought that was rude,didn't even say I'll be right with you)We kept checking on car because we were double parked.We waited 10 mins or more,finally we seen someone asked for help. She was the chef,very nice. Just had to leave bags in a cubby/closes.Woman was still on phone when left. (Found out her name was Edith)Next morning went down for breakfast at 7:27. Starts at 7:30.I have been to many B & Bs & hotels,this continental breakfast was ok at best. My friend asked if they had english muffins,the woman said technically I still have a few mins. Come on! No need for an attitude.She was bringing them out.We went out for the day came back afternoon to change,we were staying on second floor. There is a grand stair case & a small slow elevator. I don't take elevators.There was a rope blocking the stairs.Edith happen to be there,we asked about ropes.An event was going on,doesn't want anyone to take stairs.Ok I was not taking elevator.Finally she let me take stairs,she told my friend to take my package,while she took elevator.(Maybe I was going to throw it or drop it??)Took stairs didn't see anyone,doors were closed to event.I'm not a child I wouldn't go running & screaming down the hallway.We are paying guests,I didn't appreciate her treating me like a child. If you plan on closing the stairs guest should know ahead.Though I don't agree with it.We won't stay here again,some of staff short on hospitality..
