Boston Park Plaza

Boston, USA

The hotel

As synonymous with Boston as the eponymous tea party and cream pie, Boston Park Plaza has been a landmark on the city’s hotel circuit since it opened 90 years ago. Reinterpreted for the 21st century traveller with a $100 million mega-makeover, it now adds contemporary décor and mod-cons to its timeless elegance. And you’re in good company, with all bar two US Presidents staying here since it opened. It’s easy to see why, with a top-drawer location near Boston Common. Of course, they wouldn’t all have experienced today’s attractions, which include a mammoth 20,000 SF Health Club, the nightly cocktail hour (well 5 hours) in the Library, and the New England inspired dining of its Off the Common restaurant, with Boston’s signature lobster rolls a menu favourite.

The hotel cannot be better located. Good rooms and extraordinary good service. We were received by Sergio at the reception desk and was nice as efficient. Breakfast really good. It is classical building and hotel in Boston but very well maintained. Great experience !

As the title suggests, this was the hotel I selected for my engagement evening. I worked closely with Stephen Schlesinger, the front office manager, to make the night perfect for my new fiancee. When I say he went "above and beyond" the call of duty, I mean it with a grateful heart. He helped organize the best room he had, rose petals to be laid… Read more
As the title suggests, this was the hotel I selected for my engagement evening. I worked closely with Stephen Schlesinger, the front office manager, to make the night perfect for my new fiancee. When I say he went "above and beyond" the call of duty, I mean it with a grateful heart. He helped organize the best room he had, rose petals to be laid out before our arrival, champagne, and explicit instructions to his staff so as to not ruin the surprise for her. He helped make the perfect night for the love of my life and I am forever grateful. If you are planning on proposing or even having a romantic night with someone you love, look no further than the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. Read less

I was thoroughly pleased with my experience here. My company had booked the incorrect number of beds for my trip, but Laura, who was my stellar receptionist, helped me through my ordeal and upgraded me to be able to get a rollaway for the weekend. David was also exceptional and made it a point to remember me and my reason for being in the area.… Read more
I was thoroughly pleased with my experience here.

David was also exceptional and made it a point to remember me and my reason for being in the area. Little details like that are what makes the difference between good and great staff. My room was lovely and clean. Though I didn't try the restaurant inside the lobby, it always looked busy. I definitely recommend staying here! Read less

This is the second time I stay at the Boston Park Plaza, what a phenomenal experience! The location is fabulous, you can really go any where from this location. What I experience this time around was phenomenal! The people working at the hotel is very friendly, engaged, just super attentive! The room was super clean and comfortable. I ate breakfast there every day and the food was delicious! It was such a easy and comfortable stay. I was really impressed with how many people was at the hotel the weekend I stayed there. The meeting rooms were full of live and energy. So many things happening all at once, but the staff super friendly, professional, genuine and super caring, making sure you truly walk away with a real Boston experience! I can't wait to return and bring all my family with me! Read less

Staff is lovely, rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, conveniently located, Starbucks in the lobby, valet parking. BUT walls are paper thin. I heard every word of every conversation on both sides and TV programs. Bring earplugs!! Also, no HBO. Tried to stream from their TV but I guess I’m not tech savvy enough. After calling down to the front… Read more

I heard every word of every conversation on both sides and TV programs. Bring earplugs!! Also, no HBO. Tried to stream from their TV but I guess I’m not tech savvy enough. After calling down to the front desk a few times, I finally gave up and watched it GOT on my phone. Read less
