Back Bay Beauty
We really loved our stay at Newbury Guest House. The location is excellent for exploring the back bay and Newbury Street. Both restaurants were excellent as well, but there are dozens more just a short walk away if French isn't your thing.

Lovely hospitable inn in the heart of Newbury St
We had a great stay at Newbury Guest House. The staff at the front desk were especially wonderful and helpful, even though we had to request a room change. If you want to be right in the heart of Newbury St, this is the place for you. The only thing bad (which is, of course, not the hotel's fault) is the slow traffic on Newbury St. If you are driving or taking an Uber, it will probably be much faster and less stressful to go to the back alley entrance (Public Alley 432). Car traffic on chic Newbury st. is awful! The inn was lovely, however.
