                      Concierge and other staff were incredibly helpful and outgoing in their desire to help. It was really nice to feel appreciated as a guest and be shown real customer service.

                      Truly enjoyed our stay! The decor was just what we were looking for: Old Boston. Beautiful lobby and the rooms were clean and elegant. All of the staff were friendly and full of smiles willing to help you - very personable! Great location . a definite must if visiting Boston as a tourist or a local just wanting a luxurious "getaway"!

                      Beautiful, comfortable, very high quality hotel, without being as stuffy as some. Very welcoming indeed to a family of scruffy Brits who'd been on the road for two weeks!

                      I cannot recommend the Lenox highly enough. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, the hotel facilities were beautiful and the location was brilliant for exploring all that Boston has to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely return.

                      I liked the old-world charm. I thought the staff were outstandingly attentive and helpful. I also like many of the old-fashioned details preserved in the building.

                      This is a two-edged sword. In places the decoration was heavy on the eye and I thought it could have been made easier. It may be over-ornate and perhaps the introduction of some simpler colors would contrast better.

                      Friendliness of the porters and bellboys. Restaurant has great food and service.

                      Hotel urgently needs a general overhaul. Airconditioning unit extremely noisy, shower head clogged, bath tap not working, family (4p) room comes with 2 queen beds (4 feet wide) beds. And the hotel does not have a parking.

                      The staff and rooms were great. Our reservation was lost upon arrival, but the staff was able to rebook a room for us and ungraded us for the tiem and inconvenience.

                      The mattresses should be upgraded.

                      Location, I could walk to anything in Boston from here. Shopping and restaurants just outside the door. Able to walk to attractions in the city. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. Liked the coffee and tea in the lobby in the morning. Room was spacious and beautifully decorated.

                      The people who work there are great.Always welcoming , the girls at the front desk gave my daughter a book about college because she had found out the reason for our trip to Boston was to look at colleges.The concierge was very helpful and knowledgeable.The Lenox had the best staff that I have ever experienced. A memorable stay.
