Time Out says
One of the city’s best-kept lodging secrets, the College Club is the country’s oldest women’s club that just also happens to be an 11-bedroom bed and breakfast (open to men and women alike). Situated inside a stunning Back Bay brownstone, the hotel’s rooms are each named after a regional college and uniquely decorated by a different local designer. The double rooms feature private bathrooms and decorative fireplaces; the three shared bathrooms for the singles also underwent a recent refresh. Sitting on the lower end of the historic Commonwealth Avenue, the club puts you within walking distance of every great Boston attraction, from the Public Gardens to Newbury Street to the Charles River.
