4/10 Fair

Not worth the money
No service. Be prepared for an apathetic staff and a lot of waiting. No attention to detail or care for guests. Not a 5 star experience.

It was great, until…
It’s always great experience staying at the Newbury Boston. The staff are wonderful and remembered us from our last stay a few months ago. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great experience. But the last our of our stay wasn’t the greatest… If you valet, make sure you text for your car to come instead of call. If you call, your car may be delivered to the wrong entrance. Texting allows you to select Arlington or Newbury. We waited over 40 minutes for our car that was brought to the wrong entrance. Instead of the valet staff coming around the just to see if we were at that entrance, like they did with other people who were on the wrong side, our car just sat there. When other patrons started to draw the attention to the valet about how long we have been waiting, I started to walk over to see if our car was on the on the other corner and it was. Then none of the bellmen helped us move the trolley around the corner to our vehicle when there were 2 bellman and 5 valet staff just watching us struggle with the trolley. The valet manager apologized and showed me how calls come through in poorly on their program. I will always come back the Newbury because the place and staff are amazing, and love the neighborhood and local to everything. Even though this valet experience wasn’t great, I know they always do their best in putting their best foot forward!
