We entered this venue from Boylston Street where there is construction underway. It was a humble looking entrance for a dazzling mall with many mid to upscale retailers. The... read more

We went to the Prudential Center to see the skywalk. We went at dusk. It got dark fast and the view wasn't so great after that. We listened to a few of the audio stops, but it was tough after dark, we suggest going during the day. It was a nice view, but the price was a bit high we... More

We entered this venue from Boylston Street where there is construction underway. It was a humble looking entrance for a dazzling mall with many mid to upscale retailers. The cosmopolitan crowd with good energy is conducive for serious shoppers. Many vendors with kiosks selling all kind of knick knacks were also present on the floor of its mall.

Great place to shop around the great amount of shops. Also some good restaurants and do not miss a visit up the Prudential Tower on the skywalk.

Had a drink and snacks in the tower bar. Gorgeous views of Boston. Best to get there before dark and get a table next to the window.

It is a mall - big, clean, loads of eateries, but still just a mall. but it does have access to the skywalk.

Unfortunately on my visit I wasn't able to see the whole of the city from the observation deck as half of the venue was hired out for a private function and despite this the entry fee was still full price but my disappointment soon faded when I saw the view. Primarily I made the trip for some night photography and... More

Spent quite a bit of time wandering the mall while in town while waiting for spouse during conference. Upscale shopping = out of my budget but we were able to get a few toys at the toy store on the far end of the mall. Some construction is going on so I guess some shops have been moved around from...

We visited the Prudential Centre after a recommendation from a police officer whilst completely lost in Boston. We are so glad we went. It is a shopping centre with the usual shops and great if you want to do some shopping. We took the lift to the restaurant. We were able to get a table by the window easily with... More

The Observation Deck is a must-do! We went about 30 minutes before sunset so we could see in daylight and the beautiful sunset and then the lights of the city. There is an audio tour so you know what you are looking at and a little info about the sights. There are also 4 films which take about 30 minutes... More
