We stayed for two nights at the start of our "See all of New England" trip. The location of the College Club could not have been better. Located at the foot of the Public Garden, it is a convenient walk from Boston Common and all the North End eateries beyond.
The room was very large, with high ceilings and window seats looking out on Commonwealth Ave. The furnishings definitely take you back to an earlier era, but that is part of the charm. The bathroom had a spacious glass shower and was very clean. Breakfast is served in the common area downstairs and is basic continental fare, but tasty with plenty of seating. We would not hesitate to stay here on our next trip to Boston. Much more personality than one of the big Copley Square hotels.
My husband was part of a biking event that ended at the Massachusetts State House and we wanted a hotel within a 15 minute or so walk. I came upon the College Club of Boston and am so happy I did--talk about a hidden gem. It is less than a block from the beautiful public gardens and close to Newbury Street, the T station, shops and restaurants. We received a code for the door and found our room key waiting for us. While the elevator was slow it did the job. We stayed on the fourth floor in the Simmons Room. We had a king side bed and both kid had his own cot, which was surprisingly comfortable. The decor was lovely, room clean, and one of the best hotel showers we've ever experienced! The continental breakfast (included) was more than adequate--don't miss the fruit cups in the refrigerator, with coffee/tea available all day. We also loved the building itself--do check out the grand staircase and if you can, take a peek into the event rooms. They were setting up for a shower and let us look in--absolutely stunning. There was no tv in the room which was fine for us but some people may object to. The only thing I didn't love was trying to find parking...not so easy. Overall a fantastic stay. So much more than a standard hotel--we will gladly go back.
