I travel to Boston frequently for business and on my last trip, this week, I found that there were NO hotel rooms available in the entire city, due to the Stanley Cup playoffs. I finally found an available room at this very nice B&B in Jamaica Plains. Though it was out of my way, since I was doing business in the Seaport District, I didn't mind the longer cab ride, as my stay was such a surprisingly pleasant experience! The gracious hosts, Dave and Daryl, were so lovely. And the home was lovingly restored. Though some of the common areas felt slightly ""worn"", I found my bedroom and bath to be better than most fine hotels. The innkeepers focus on those things that matter most - great air conditioning (in over 90 degree weather!), plush towels, updated and well appointed bathrooms, comfortable bed - with soft linens, privacy, flat screen TV, and an excellent breakfast! And I loved the fact that they support local business and products, such as the assortment of artisanal jams, and they support green living, by directing guests to dispose of breakfast trash in a compost bin and recycling containers.\r
I highly recommend Taylor House for vacationers, as well as business people who want the comforts of home.
