Open Again Fall 2021



Clarendon Square considers the health and well-being of guests and staff our highest priority,  the following health and safety policy are in place:

FULL COVID-19 VACCINATION: Proof of full vaccination will be required for all guests, as well as staff, and all others entering the Clarendon Square.

FACE MASKS: In accordance with CDC guidance and local and state mandates face masks will also be required for all guests and staff at all times, regardless of vaccination status, while inside the inn’s common areas, except in your guest room. A properly worn mask completely covers the nose and mouth, is secured to the head, and fits snugly against the side of the face.


  • Two dose COVID-19 vaccine: Guests considered fully vaccinated will have received their second dose of the vaccine at least 14 days prior to arrival.
  • Single dose COVID-19 vaccine: Guests considered fully vaccinated will have received their single dose at least 14 days prior to arrival.


  • A physical card or a photo of a complete vaccination card that matches each guest’s valid photo ID.


The decision to require proof vaccination reflects what is happening at business & cities around the country. Taking these steps small will allow our guests to travel with more peace of mind and help ensure the safety of our valued guests and our staff. Implementing this simple measure minimizes risk and the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Additionally, the city of Boston requires vaccination when entering restaurants, theaters and many public venues.

A note from us…

We are excited to welcome you back. Like everyone, the pandemic completely surprised us. In March 2020 we closed not knowing when we would reopen or if Boston and the world of travel would recover. We had never closed our doors, even a day in over 20 years. During our pause we stayed focused and busy renovating and redesigning spaces throughout Clarendon Square, including a complete renovation of our guest bathrooms. The hope of reopening fueled our progress and we knew the refresh would feel good and look a little different as would post pandemic travel for everyone. Meeting the desire for safety and comfort, we are shifting toward a limited contact service model. And in the spirit of convenience, we will offer guests a streamlined, contactless app based check in process. As restaurants reopen we see pent up demand to dine out again. We will suspend our onsite communal breakfast to make way for our favorite nearby breakfast restaurants to show their strength. They are eager to host you and need our support.

We are fortunate that life in Boston and Massachusetts has returned to near normal for vaccinated people. Our city is full and thriving. We know this is in large part to our dedicated medical community who kept us healthy, to our local and state governments who exercised common sense and to the residents of our beautiful city who believe in science and respect for one and other. Now it is time to relax and travel with a little more peace of mind as Massachusetts and New England have the highest vaccination rate in the nation. We are all in this together and thanks to everyone doing their part, we can now be together, in person again. We cannot wait to have you back with us.

Thank you for your support, it is a true blessing.
