Hilton Back Bay

Boston, USA

The hotel

The Hilton Back Bay hotel is ideally located in the heart of the city's most picturesque neighbourhood just steps away from the great shopping of the Prudential center, Copley plaza and Newbury street just minutes away. With Boston being such a ‘walkable’ city this hotel is perfect for first time visitors to get up close and personal with the city and from the upper floors of the hotel you have an excellent view of the Charles River and Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox. There is the nice addition of a heated indoor pool with Jacuzzi and during the summer months an outdoor sunbathing patio – very welcoming after all that walking. Casually elegant, the Forty Dalton restaurant have some very friendly bar staff on hand to whisk up a stunning cocktail and give you some tips on what to see next during your stay. For further refreshment there is also a Starbucks® café in the lobby where you can get your favourite latte whilst using the free Internet facilities.

Located adjacent to Boston College, right by the bay. Very nice location. Simple business hotel - neat and clean with large spacious rooms. Serves a limited buffet breakfast. There is a Starbucks inside which offers a good variety of options for breakfast and meals. They have a bar too!!!

Otherwise we walked everywhere. Would maybe try the older part of Boston next time but certainly enjoyed everything about our stay. Read less

We recently stayed here over July 4th week and could not say enough platitudes about this hotel and staff. First off the location was ideal with short walks to the “T”, Copley Square, Fenway Park and Newbury street areas and short Uber rides to other downtown, North End, Harvard/Cambridge and Boston College areas.

We recently stayed here over July 4th week and could not say enough platitudes about this hotel and staff. First off the location was ideal with short walks to the “T”, Copley Square, Fenway Park and Newbury street areas and short Uber rides to other downtown, North End, Harvard/Cambridge and Boston College areas. The hotel was clean and lively. The front desk, bar, diamond lounge staff was friendly and engaging. I travel a lot and it was nice to see how they treated all guests with a little extra for their regular, HH guests. The diamond lounge was a nice benefit and was regularly came in handy for a good breakfast to start the day or a late afternoon snack when returning from a day out and about. Will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family and will plan to stay here again on future visits. Read less
