5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The building was beautiful and felt safe and secure. The beds were comfortable, the room was very clean. Tons of dining and shopping just steps away from the property. We really enjoyed our stay.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I stayed in one of the smaller rooms at the Sonder 284 Back Bay. It was spotless with a beautiful, just-big-enough marble bathroom (also spotless) and a kitchenette (microwave, frig, coffee-maker, and tea kettle). The bed was very comfortable with nice linens and comfy pillows. The check-in/-out processes were seamless. It's on a quiet street lined with beautiful old brownstones and a tree-lined park. I had only one challenge. The suggested parking structures are inconveniently far from the property when walking with luggage. There was no evident luggage drop-off area. I was traveling solo. It wouldn't be an issue with 2 adult travelers. I highly recommend this property.
