2 nights in this wonderful hotel. FULL breakfast included. We arrived early from a cruise on the St Laurence River. Had a locked area to store luggage, nice parlor to unwind have tea/coffee. Walked around the neighborhood of "brownstones" with bars/retail/food/services and beautiful lush gardens/fall flowers everywhere on this tree lined street. We were on street side of third floor...

I stayed at the Newbury Guest House with the purpose of being close to Emerson College. What a fantastic choice this was! If anyone else is interested in visiting Emerson, the Newbury Guest House is about a mile away and a lovely 15-20 minute walk. This felt more like a home than a hotel too -- it made my stay...

Very comfy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had room 310 which was at the side away from the street. It was quiet and comfortable even though there was temporary street construction going on day and night. The guest house is located on Newbury street which is a cool, vibrant neighborhood. Just about every building has a restaurant...

Newbury Guest House was a real treat after spending some nights in a mega-New York hotel. Such a pretty property. Our room was super quiet and comfortable.

This is a small boutique hotel located on a historical street filled with high end shops and great restaurants. Rooms are little on the smaller size and I would recommend a bay room which gives you a bit more space. Immaculate and cozy. Small bathroom typcial of a vintage building.

Couldn't have picked a better location for a first-time visit to Boston. Good for walking and access to the T, and surrounded by shops and restaurants. Our room was a good size, neat and clean. The included breakfast was welcome, and the staff friendly. Newbury Guest House ticked all the right boxes for our stay.

Great boutique hotel on trendy Newbury in the Back Bay Area, close to everything (Boston Commons to the East, Fenway to the West). Rooms are spacious enough for downtown hotel, good firm beds, helpful staff. Free parking in the back alley is invaluable. Make sure to have the croissants at breakfast, courtesy of the bakery in the English basement.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
