My tip for for the people who own this company....Hire a more professional staff equipped with the intelligence and grace to listen and respond to a patron's issues. Hire a decorating committee and learn to provide top notch service.

Who runs this place? Who is the entertainment/activities manager? The so-called Back Bay Gala 2013 at the Sheraton Hotel, 39 Dalton St, Boston, was very, very disappointing on multiple counts: not a trace of any festive decorations in

I really enjoy dancing to the Love Dogs so any chance to see them is super. Adding this to a NYE event where we can stay overnight and enjoy all the amenities of a party is superb. I've really enjoyed the BBG because the dinner option is fun and allows us to meet nice people to hang out with during the celebration, as well as do our own thing. We've found the drinks are great, and the dancing, of course, is just a blast. No cheesy boring event, BBG is just pure fun.

I went to this in 2006 and again in 2010. I love the updates you've made since 2006 and we are working on bringing a larger group this year. I highly recommend this event. The Love Dogs were so much fun to dance to. The ability to enjoy New Years with hundreds of other 40+ guests is not found in many locations in Boston. I also like that as a Back Bay Gala guest we could drop into the larger event geared towards young professionals but they were excluded from going into the 40+ room.

My only feedback/update from last year is to have a separate 40+ entrance silent auction from the younger event . I called to request this and was told you are including this update.

Thank you for listening to feedback and planning a great event!

Happy New Year!

Jim

The Back Bay Gala held on December 31, 2010 at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston was horrible. It was $18.50 for a plastic cup of white wine and a drink made with 'Effen' Vodka. The crowd was a bunch of 20 an 30 year olds running around with dresses that were way too short for their weight. No one working there knew anything about the gift bags that I prepaid and the restrooms were filthy after 11 pm. The website claimed the party was at Seaport Hotel, where I was staying, but it was across the street. The hotel is big and it was a long walk in high heels without a coat. It was an awful experience and a ripoff.

In a nutshell, the problem was this: On what should have been one of the most romantic evenings of the year, the band -- the Love Dogs (who are also playing this year) -- did not play a single slow number during the final hour and a half of their gig. Not that their fast numbers were all that great. With an audience of boomers and an incredible 60s/70s repertory to choose from -- Motown, the Beatles, etc. -- they chose such gems as ""Build Me Up, Buttercup."" Still, they are a talented group. Now if someone would just talk to them, maybe buy them some new sheet music....

Pros: The setting, some of the music.

Cons: The band's repertory

This is the event for baby boomers to go to. I went last year and enjoyed the top tier option. I told my friends already so i thought I would write a review so i can let more people know about the amazing experience i had last year.

Editorial from

More than 500 Baby Boomers are expected to ring in 2006 to the sounds of a live swing band.
