We chose to have our wedding reception at the Taj Boston, because of the location on the Public Garden and proximity to the Arlington Street Church. The size of the Grand Ballroom was just right for 140 guests. It can accommodate many more people, but we were pleased with the amount of space we had around our tables and the size of the dance floor for our wedding. This is a pricey venue, and there are extra costs for many things, but you generally get what you pay for, including a large serving staff and amazing food. The hotel itself is aging, but the traditional decor is what make it charming and, in my opinion, classier than some of the more modern hotels in town. Our coordinator, Courtney, was easy to work with, communicative, and helpful in the final set up. The hotel also offers a free honeymoon if you spend above a certain amount of money--a surprise to us when we chose the Taj. We've had trouble scheduling ours, but it's a great deal if you can use it. And just staying in the bridal suite overlooking the Garden is a treat!

We recently had our wedding reception at the Taj and we truly had the wedding of our dreams. Our wedding was in the ballroom, which is absolutely stunning. The food and the cake were amazing and the service was impeccable. We worked with Kimberly and she was great to work with. She made sure every detail we had planned for our wedding day was executed perfectly. We couldn't have picked a better reception venue and we highly recommend it to others.

My husband and I chose Taj Boston for our July wedding reception and were so happy with our choice. Kimberly was great to work with and kept everything in order on the day of the wedding. Our reception was in the grand ballroom which was stunning. We also had our rehearsal dinner on the rooftop which our guests really enjoyed. Taj Boston has become such a special place to my husband and I and we highly recommend it. We also received a 6 night honeymoon and chose The Taj Dubai to stay at, such a nice incentive!

We had our wedding on the Rooftop in August, and it was absolutely perfect! We worked with Monique, who really tried hard to put together our vision. The food was amazing, and we took advantage of the Commons for pictures. We couldn't have asked for anything more perfect!

I had my wedding reception at the Taj Boston. It's the quintessential Boston location - right across the street from the public garden and at the foot of Newbury St. We had the cocktail hour on the Roof (because it was not booked by another wedding!) and dinner/dancing in the Grand Ballroom. Afterwards,our guests could not stop raving about how beautiful everything was and how excellent the food was. I think it is a great value for the location alone.
We did have some trouble with the front desk - some of our guests had trouble booking rooms and getting confirmations and we had some issues getting a correct list of everyone in our party who had booked rooms at first, but that was straightened out for the most part. Not every guest received their welcome bags though, which upset me. Also, the signature drinks I requested and went over with my coordinator mutiple times were nowhere to be found on the wedding day (not passed or displayed on a sign at the bar).
For the most part, they are willing to work with you on whatever you want to do. We had a dvd of pictures that we wanted displayed last minute and the coordinator was able to get a TV set up to show them during cocktail hour. You can customize the menu to your liking and choose your own design/ flavors for the cake. The cake was absolutely delicious!
All in all it was beautiful and memorable and I would recommend the Taj. Ask about the food if you go to look at it - they will likely give you a free dinner in the cafe!

Amazing... It was a dream come true. Perfect down to every detail. The service, food and decor were flawless! Rooftop is great for smaller wedding (no more than 120 ppl). The food was better than any wedding I'v e ever been to and the staff was gracious and warm. Oh and let's not forget the view overlooking the park and Boston skyline. Beautiful! Wedding Coordinator Vanessa made it all come together with out any glitches. Love them!
