Editorial review:

Featuring the only rooftop swimming pool, The Colonnade Hotel has long been considered the best feature of this European style hotel. But there is more: the location is convenient, being close to the convention center and to the Back Bay shopping locations, the rooms are excellent after the 2008 renovation, there is the on- site Brasserie Jo, and in general this hotel is (correctly) considered good value for money.

            Climate control was excellent -- very important in July. Also, the beds were extremely comfortable. I have a high-dollar mattress at home, and I think the Colonnade bed was just as good if not better.

            The location was great. We had the subway and the Trolley stops outside the hotel door. Lots of restaurants nearby. Shopping plaza across the street. Pool on the roof. Staff very helpful. Can't wait to return to Boston and will stay at the Colonnade Hotel again.

            Excellent location, trendy neighborhood, close to everything. The pool on the roof is fantastic if you are travelling during the summer months.

            We liked the location, the fact Jo Braserie is attached to the Hotel where they serve faboulous French food and the Hotel staff was super nice and very helpful!

            Getting out!

            Cold water for a morning shower...just not acceptable; ever. Incorrect room type [needed 2 beds...got one].

            The bellman Aidan, and the concierge Jerry, were extremely helpful my entire trip. I was travelling alone with my daughter and it was a comfort to know they were looking out for us!

            The staff was so pleasant and accommodating and the facility was very accommodating and nicely styled. Bistro Jo offered a very competitive alternative to dining out. The Boston location was perfect to allow easy access to many of the city's main attractions. The lobby was inviting and tasteful without being ostentatious. The hallways of the floors on which guestrooms are located were calm and inviting. Public-access washrooms were clean and a nice accommodation for "emergency" use right after shopping...nice not to have to wait until arriving at one's room. The rooms are nicely decorated---clean modern style, but comfortable. We appreciated having coffee in our rooms---evidently, this is not a standard at all high-end hotels, as we experienced at another more expensive locale prior to moving to the Colonnade. The pool area was very pleasant...a really well-planned accommodation and we appreciated breakfast at the pool. The lighting of the rooms was nice, closet space very adequate, and television's picture quality was excellent. We can't say enough good things about the staff....the friendliest and most gracious people, without exception. They were a treat to talk to, knowledgeable and helpful about arrangements of every kind. The little transport cars are an outstanding feature...someone is clearly thinking "green" while making things easy for guests with mobility problems. My husband was experiencing knee problems, and Jerry, Norm and Jimmy made a world of difference to the quality of our stay. We would certainly return to this lovely hotel again, without hesitation.

            Observations intended only to be helpful for future planning....keys did not respond consistently in slots; a bit of uncertainty about whether they would work. The bathrooms are small (but the spaces are well--used and we understood that a renovation had occurred, to good effect); the moden chairs might not be to everyone's taste or comfort; perhaps this could be a future enhancement; pillows could be a bit firmer (we found ours really flattened out) but the beds and linens were very comfortable; perhaps a gift shop would be a good addition; could not find a house courtesy phone on main floor to call up to room, but that might have been my oversight; perhaps add a couple of hangers with clips for pants on them...this is not big stuff...the substantive needs are well-met for travellers.

            Friendly additional service from Norman at Bell desk / Front door was great - very helpful with a particular situation I had that required some local knowledge and attention. Beds are really comfortable.

            Broken coffee machine that didn't get fixed even after it was pointed out to housekeeping.

            The concierge, Cindy, was awesome! She contacted an excellent sitter for me. And had a car delivered for me. Seamless service. And the pool is amazing.

            I didnt like the configuration of the smallish rooms, and bathroom.

            The staff was great and made you feel special. Love the beds , soft sheets and pillows a must for a great nights sleep and a great vacation.

            The room was very comfortable. Location is great, the subway station is right in front of the hotel.

            I think bathrooms should have a fan for removing steam after a bath and any oders.

            Beautiful hotel. Loved all the little extras in the room, especially the Keurig Coffee Maker. The little rubber duckie for the tub was an awesome touch as well! Within walking distance to just about everything. Enjoyed the walk to Fenway Park. Great area. Would definately stay here again.

            Nothing. Absolutely beautiful place.
