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.

Posh looking hotel, good location. Lobby was always really busy and expensive. Room was comfy, a little on the small side and was expecting a king size bed tbh but was comfy overall. Has a little shop convenience store inside.

This hotel is really beautiful on the inside. That being said, it is also very, very crowded in the lobby area. I expected issues with the elevators because of how crowded it was, but this was never an issue. They occasionally had a doorman, it would be nice if there was always a doorman. The rooms are a little small, which is to be expected… Read more

I expected issues with the elevators because of how crowded it was, but this was never an issue. They occasionally had a doorman, it would be nice if there was always a doorman. The rooms are a little small, which is to be expected in Boston, and we had some issues with the refrigerator and coffee machine, but service was sent up to our room to help us out right away. I saw no evidence of recycling practices, no extra bins, etc. You can't beat the location which is a short walk from the park, Beacon Hill and dozens of great restaurants. Read less

This hotel would rate lower were it not for the excellent service, location, and ambiance. I realize that sounds nutty but somehow it makes sense. It’s old, but they’ve done as well as could possibly be expected updating and caring for the place. Good bell service and bar. Will stay again.

Stayed for a couple of nights at the end of a two week USA holiday. Much better than we expected. Good service, great room (no view though), comfortable bed, food and drinks reasonable price. Reception staff sorted a bill problem with ease. Would definitely recommend, but check what extras you are committed to by booking company.

The location is perfect for all Boston has to offer. Close to shopping, dining and sight seeing, all easy walking distance. This property is huge!

The location is perfect for all Boston has to offer. Close to shopping, dining and sight seeing, all easy walking distance. This property is huge! Although they offer parking, there is no need for a car in Boston... you can walk everywhere, and take Uber/Lift when necessary. We were upgraded to a corner suite for an additional charge...worth every penny! The views were very nice and the room was rather large. Bathroom was small, not enough space for more than one person at a time. Shower pressure was good, beds and pillows comfortable. There is a very good restaurant in the hotel, where we enjoyed dinner and drinks. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and will be back. Read less
