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.

Alex D was great and very friendly at check in! Made us feel right at home. He was very accommodating and looking for ways to get us what we wanted. He found us an upgrade to a king deluxe for only a little bit more money.

My wife was on a business trip this week which fell on the one year anniversary of her mothers passing. Carolyn the concierge assisted me in getting a local florist to deliver flowers to my wife. Carolyn, and the front desk staff of Sarah and Yesly were nothing short of fantastic!! I called the morning of my wife's arrival and Sarah stated the flowers were delivered on time and they would have them ready on my wife's arrival. Later that day my wife called me to let me know she received the flowers on her arrival and was thankful for the thought. This was all possible by the amazing service provided by the staff at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. Thank you for taking great care of my wife and assisting me in making her week better. Read less

I booked our room through a third party for a two queen superior room. Upon checking in, they only had us booked for a one queen bed which was no ideal since we had 3 guests. My confirmation email says two queens but the third party service made an error and booked us incorrectly. Alex D was the person that helped us and so kindly just fixed the room for us for no additional charge since it was the third party's fault. The hotel is in a really good location. It's within walking distance to shopping and food places on Newbury and chinatown. The nearest train station is also across the street. Read less
