Megan Johnson

Entirely revamped in 2012, the Chandler Inn is a gay-friendly, welcoming spot with chic design and friendly staff. Sitting on one of the South End's prettiest streets, it's easy walking distance from shops, restaurants, and the T.

LOCATION

Getting Around

There is no onsite parking, but guests receive a discount at a nearby parking garage. Guests are encouraged to use the 15 minute loading/unloading zone in front of the hotel before parking in the garage 3 blocks away. If you prefer to use the subway to get around, hop on the MBTA's Orange Line just a few minutes walk away.

Restaurants

Perhaps the most acclaimed restaurant neighborhood in Boston, there are endless options in the South End. The critically-adored Toro (20 minute walk, 7 minute drive) is always busy and doesn't take reservations, so be ready to wait. Joanne Chang's beloved Flour Bakery & Cafe (7 minute walk, 3 minute drive) is great for coffee and sandwiches, or the famous sticky buns.

Bars

Club Cafe (5 minute walk) is more of a local institution than a gay bar, but it's been around 30 years and is a mainstay for the local scene. Delux Cafe (3 minute walk) is a casual bar with late night eats.

WHY WE LIKE IT

There aren't tons of options for hotels in the South End, despite it being one of the best neighborhoods for foodies in Boston. If you're dead-set on staying in the neighborhood, the Chandler is a good choice.
