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 Boston Park Plaza is a treasure. Perfect location. Immaculate rooms. Attractive lobby. Great food and drinks. But, I was blown away by the very personal service. The Front Office Manager, Yesly Villafranca, took such a personal interest in being certain that I and my three friends from South America had an amazing time. Little touches -- such as taking us over personally to the concierge, arranging special treats in the rooms -- made for a absolutely amazing stay. The Boston Park Plaza will be at the top of my list of hotels to stay in whenever I am visiting or entertaining in Boston. Read less

Our personal experience was fantastic & we loved the hotel & our stay. Do your research, yes there are small rooms so consider an upgrade. Upon arrival they were handing out small, delicious complimentary cupcakes, an unexpected nice gesture. The cozy room is small and not much walking space but it depends on your expectations of what you are looking for in a room. The superior king was larger and very comfortable for us (2 people). We had a city view and yes you can see the people across the street in other buildings but it’s a city.. I feel like that can be inevitable & didn’t bother us. The building is old but the upgrades seemed pretty nice to us.. and an old building just means extra character. There was no plugin in the bathroom so that made things a bit more tricky to use small appliances but we managed. The bed was comfortable for us, housekeeping was very diligent which was much appreciated. Tevin at the front desk was amazing and provided exceptional customer service which easily enhances the overall experience. We were very thankful! The location was perfect.. walking distance to all the things we wanted to do even in the cold weather, but also an Uber/Lyft was very convenient to get around to other spots in the city. The food at the lobby restaurant was mediocre and we thought a little over priced when there are so many other amazing restaurants in the city but this didn’t take away from our experience. We would definitely stay there again and were very happy with everything! Read less

A nice business hotel I I stayed in better 4 stars hotels with a better service and much better view ....but everything works properly in the rooms, the rooms are clean and equipped with Iron, coffee machines, a safe and a large tv. The bathrooms are quite small.

The hotel was wonderful. Very clean and staff were helpful and friendly. We had a slight mix up with our room (my own fault while booking). Bishal was the man we dealt with at the front desk and he couldn’t of been more helpful or friendly! Overall great stay and hope to make it back again!
