OVERVIEW of the Eliot Hotel
Privately owned and operated by the Ullian family, the The Eliot Hotel, is a stone building with green awnings and an ornate iron entry portico that suggests an exquisite European hideaway. Ideally located in the heart of the Back Bay, the hotel is only steps away from Newbury Street and other attractions, yet just set apart from the bustle of the city.
The marble lobby of this elegant and luxurious hotel is small and intimate and check-in at the antique desk is quick and efficient. The staff is friendly and engaging and quick to hail a taxi or offer directions. The acclaimed Uni Restaurant is one of the city’s most popular Japanese restaurants and sushi bars.
THE ROOMS at the Eliot Hotel
The suites, decorated in shades of beige and green, are large with a bedroom and marble bath separated by French doors from the living room. Heavy, toile curtains keep out the noise from the streets below and the sun in the morning. The rooms are decorated in antique furniture and chinz fabrics and the living room has a couch, two easy chairs, a television in an armoire and a large writing desk. Books and magazines on the coffee table, and a little card with jogging/walking routes are just some of the personal touches that make this a wonderfully comfortable home away from home. Each room is equipped with high speed internet access, a lavish mini-bar, thick, plush towels, down comforters and silky soft bed linens.
My favorite room is #704. Large windows, that actually open, provide sweeping views down Commonwealth Ave. and Massachusetts Ave. This spacious suite is a great place to come home to at the end of the day or evening.
