    Nice hotel but sorely lacks basic amenities

    Nice hotel with good location and service, but at these prices there are certain things I’d expect to have available that The Charles lacks. First and foremost, our room had no refrigerator. That to me is just unacceptable at these prices and very inconvenient. Then there are things like no password protected WiFi, no ice machines (you need to call the desk to have ice delivered), no vending machines, and the “gift shop” is an absolute joke unless all you want are chocolate bars and a soda — can’t even get a bag of chips or bottled water! What??? C’mon man! Ya gotta do better than this at these prices, and the sad thing is that all of these things would be relatively easy to provide. All these inconveniences add up to a frustrating experience despite the niceties, and I would not stay here again.

    Wonderful experience

    My first time in Boston and I am so glad I stayed at the Charles Hotel! It's a beautiful hotel, conveniently located at the town center within walking distance to many shops, also right next to the JFK Memorial Park where you could relax, enjoy view of the river, walk around; even as late as 10pm the park is still well-lighted and it was very fun to stroll around the streets nearby. The hotel was very clean, guest service was courteous and prompt, there were free water bottles, and I just loved the bed sheets as well as eating at Henrietta's Table! I really enjoyed my stay at the Charles Hotel.

    Good hotel

    Pleasant hotel and well located. Very clean. The only minor issue is that the attached parking is quite expensive, $45 per night.

    Liked it all except for food served at the Henrietta. Ordered vegetable soup that was overly salty and spicy. Inedible.
