Wyndham Boston Beacon Hill

Boston, USA

The hotel

This high-rise hotel has all the luxuries of an urban retreat but all the charms of its historic location. Its address also puts you just a block from Charles River Plaza, and within walking distance of Boston Common, Faneuil Marketplace, and the downtown dining, shopping and entertainment spots. Not satisfied with just being super-central, the Wyndham Beacon Hill has come up with plenty of its own distractions: on top of complimentary WiFi, it offers the artisan-meets-casual-American cooking of The Dean’s List restaurant, and a swanky seasonal swimming pool, complete with a serene sundeck giving you views of Boston and the waterfront.

Nothing fancy but great hotel, especially for the marathon. About a 5 minute walk to two different T lines, short walk to an Italian restaurant (Antonios) and a little longer walk to Little Italy for pasta dinners pre marathon. There is a Whole Foods right by the hotel and a Target just down the street. Hotel was over priced but they all are for… Read more

+Not much to recommend this run down dump of a place other than its location, which is pretty good. -Staff is very rude and on a power trip. You can tell the rooms used to have microwaves and refrigerators. However, over time, the microwaves and refrigerators broke down.

+Not much to recommend this run down dump of a place other than its location, which is pretty good. -Staff is very rude and on a power trip. You can tell the rooms used to have microwaves and refrigerators. However, over time, the microwaves and refrigerators broke down. Instead of replacing the equipment, which would have been the ethical thing to do, the Wyndham decided to start charging guests in rooms with microwaves and/or refrigerators an extra $20 a night, calling the basic equipment an “upgrade.” The staff enjoys lording it over guests, withholding refrigerators and microwaves from some guests and magnanimously granting the equipment to others. Pathetic. Please get a life. The hotel infrastructure is sad and run down. I would not stay here again. Read less

I don’t even want to be generous enough to rate them a 1 out of 10. Absolutely terrible. What hotel doesn’t clean your room at the start of the day? What hotel just hands you towels, bed sheets, and toilet paper and tells you to do it yourself? Apparently it’s not a requirement for hotels to clean your room.

What hotel just hands you towels, bed sheets, and toilet paper and tells you to do it yourself? Apparently it’s not a requirement for hotels to clean your room. Rooms are disgusting, Bathroom is dirty. No explanation nothing, just hotel policy. Disappointing and disgusting. They should be ashamed of themselves. An absolute dump of a place. Do yourself the favor and stay anywhere but here. Read less

This was by far a horrible experience for myself and my family. The room was absolutely disgusting, people’s hairs from previous were all over, mold and dirt in the shower, used towels in the bathroom with stains on it and the beds had hairs in it!!!! To make things worse, we left for the day, came back to see there was no room cleaning! My… Read more
This was by far a horrible experience for myself and my family. The room was absolutely disgusting, people’s hairs from previous were all over, mold and dirt in the shower, used towels in the bathroom with stains on it and the beds had hairs in it!!!! To make things worse, we left for the day, came back to see there was no room cleaning! My husband called the front desk at 7pm asking to have our room serviced - we had no toilet paper, clean towels, wanted CLEAN bedsheets- he was told no and that we must “request” room cleaning. A man came to our door handing us our own bedsheets and said we had to do it our selves. I then call the front desk complaining and the man talked down to me like I was stupid accusing that I don’t stay in hotels and that hotels do not clean rooms daily and that it “had to be” explained to us that they don’t clean the rooms unless we stay more than several days. DISGUSTING!!!!!! That was never discussed once. I had toured the world with a company over the past several years so i am HIGHLY accustomed to hotel staying and this was by far my worst experience. I am so upset and I highly recommend NOT staying here, it is not clean and the photos look nothing like the rooms. You’ll probably have a better trip at a $50 motel. Read less

Got to see two games in a weekend. Can’t stop Boston at least on that weekend. My wife surprised me with trip and the hotel was so easy to get to and away from. We love to the north of Boston and hate traffic so this was excellent.
