Best Rooms: You won't find much in the way of views, because the building is only six stories high. However, rooms facing Tremont St., on floors 5 - 6, offer nicer views of the city.
Best Rooms: All rooms on the top floor at Chandler Inn Hotel offer a nice view, which is of the surrounding buildings.

Best Rooms: The side of the building facing Boylston St. offers decent city views. Rooms ending in *05 (i.e. 605, 705) sit at the corner of Blagden and Exeter Streets, and depending on how high of a floor you're on, you may be able to catch a glimpse of the Charles River; these will likely be the best views offered from the hotel.
Best Rooms: For views of the waterfront, be sure to specifically book a Harbor View room.
