"Our stay was magical in every way. The location was as good as it could possibly be and we could, and did walk to everything (Boston Symphony 3 minutes away!)

The accommodations were pristine and there was nothing that wasn't provided for our needs. In addition, the owners were available for any question we could pose.

We are planning to stay here again within the next 3 months - it is the most ideal downtown location you could wish for."

"My family and I were absolutely enamored of the property and even more so of our host's professionalism, attention to detail and in promptly responding to any questions we had prior to and during our stay.

The property is immaculate, the decor is very appealing ... the king size bed was elegantly prepared and wonderfully comfortable."

"I have already referred this lodging option to 2 other people - I thought it was terrific, from start to finish. Richard was courteous, professional, and very easy to work with. The apartment itself is amazing. Great location,
clean, all necessary amenities. We had a great stay!"

"Richard was unbelievably great. When getting to our condo, we opened the door and the place was spacious, clean and in a perfect location. The neighborhood was fantastic and we were grateful not to feel like total tourists by staying in this condo. Richard was very accommodating and had every detail we needed from cab companies, coffee shops, a map of the city, T-train, things to do - just a great stay and close to everything you need. I highly recommend this to anyone who stays in Boston and wants to get the real feel of Boston. Just excellent."

"The Symphony Suite is a great place to stay in Boston. We enjoyed the location, only about a 4 min walk to the subway. There are many convenient stores close by and a liquor store that sells great wine. The place was modern and very clean. It was generally quiet and the neighbours seemed very nice.

We just parked our car at Symphony Garage nearby and took the T around the city. It only cost us $15.00 each for a week long Subway pass. The bedroom had a great huge bed, which is very soft and comfortable. The kitchen has every amenity and is really well done. Two large flat screen TV’s and wifi allowed us to keep connected with the world. Richard was a fabulous host, easy to deal with and was very reassuring about the neighborhood. The area is quiet and very safe.

Lots of great sandwich shops close by and a great coffee place two minutes away. The Whole Foods grocery store is about a five min walk and it was very easy to find. We ended up eating breakfast and dinner in the unit, just eating out for lunch, which was great as we saved a lot of money. We went to Mike and Patty’s Sandwich shop at 12 Church st, their food is so amazing.  We also loved the pastries at Modern Pastries at 257 Hanover Street.

The thing we also liked about the Symphony Suite was that it has a direct phone line to the owners, making it hassle free to contact them if we needed anything. The pictures of the unit on the web site were exactly what we found when we arrived. Boston was a great city to spend time in with so many sights to see and Richard was a perfect host.

I would recommend the Symphony Suite to anyone that will be visiting Boston!!"

  • This is really a perfect apartment: great size, location and functionality. Special thanks to a wonderful, responsive host - Richard. I do recommend this place and intend to come back one day.

  • Mr. Rogers is the consummate professional, and his condo, both luxurious and classic. Perfectly appointed, equipped and furnished, this lovely flat is on a charming tree lined street of brownstones in the high art, symphony, MFA, New England Conservatory, BU theater area. Couldn't have been more content with my stay. Do Boston as it should be done: I couldn't recommend Mr. Rogers and his property more highly.

  • Really nice place, very clean and everything we needed was provided. Nice college neighborhood, near Northeastern University. Pleasant, short walk to several restaurants, T-station, Fenway, Prudential tower and Back Bay. Relaxing location - better to stay in a neighborhood rather than in the heart of the tourist mobs, but with easy access via walking or the T.
