A nice stay
We had a wonderful time except for the food. The staff was amazing and the hotel was in a great location. The menus were very limited and there were not enough options for lunch and dinner especially to accomodate food allergies. Room was a little worn but very spacious and comfortable.

Good 6.0
Old School Luxury with Old School Issues.
The building itself's is sort of the best and worst part about staying at this Fairmont property. It is located in a great Boston location and having been built in 1912 it is an ornate treasure. The lobby, ballrooms, and restaurant are steeped in luxury. But the trade-off comes with smaller rooms, and the ability to hear everyone at all hours of the day and night in the rooms around your own room. This is the way buildings of this era were originally developed. So you need to go into it understanding the historical nature of the property. Note that the furniture and fixtures in your room are modern and the room is clean.
Daniel, us2 night family trip
Good 6.0
Pros: 1) Cleanliness 2) friendly staff Cons 1) Old rooms and facilities such as the shower 2) Exorbitant parking fees, and the garage is not even close by

Shelly, us2 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Terrible stay at the Fairmont
There was only one person working the desk both times we needed service. when we needed help, we were behind a couple who took no less than 45 minutes of this person's time, and she didn't do anything to mitigate - didn't make eye contact, didn't call over someone else to help, didn't ask the couple to step aside for one moment, and didn't apologize when it was finally our turn. There are many ways to mitigate a negative experience, and she did NONE of them. We valet parked, and were told that the car would be kept in the garage for the whole time. We went to breakfast early on our last day and saw our car parked on the street. When we checked out, the valet first called me "honey" which is irritating and unprofessional. Then when I said that I would roll my own bag because I had another bag perched precariously on it he said that he "hadn't dropped a laptop yet" and walked off with my daughter's bag in a huff. He didn't offer to bring the car around, just led us to the car around the corner. The car was not far away, but when you get valet parking, you assume that the car will be brought to you, and it wasn't even offered. There was old food left in our fridge There were stickers everywhere that said "thoughtfully disinfected" and several of them were covered in a layer of dust. The kettle was dirty and dusty, and one of the cups in the bathroom had cigarette ash in it. room had the cleaner's closet adjacent so all we heard was the door opening and closing all night
