Been several years since my last visit to the top of the Pru. The base area (ground level) has improved immensely and so has the experience at the top. Lots of exhibits and hands on displays to go along with the awesome view of Beantown and surrounding area. The "T" has a Prudential stop and you are indoors the whole... More

We finished our trip here by enjoying a cocktail at the top of the hub on our last night in Boston and it was worth it! It's exactly what you expect: amazing views, pricey menus and nice design. It's worth a visit but you may wait a little for a table. The views are stunning so go and spend at... More

We found out about this attraction from the concierge in our Boston Sheraton hotel. Well worth spending at least one and half hours. The cost was $24.00 each for the two of us seniors. Great 360 views of the Boston city. They supplied an audio item to wear around your neck as you went around the top of the building.... More

When visiting a city it's always fun to go to an observation deck and get a feel for the city from above. Top of the Hub is fairly painless with short lines, lots of room and almost 360 degree views. The $17.00 fee is a bit much for 20-30 minutes worth of high angle sight seeing from 50 stories up... More

If you are in Boston this is the place to go...High above Boston you can see practically 360 degrees..just breathtaking. You can visit, drink, and have dinner.

My wife and I went to the Top of the Hub for a night cap drink. It was very busy so we had to stand in the bar area. We were able to find a nice spot with a view....and where we could see the jazz band that was playing. Great place to end the evening!

the Girl at the desk remembered us that because of the changing weather conditions the view can be limited (that was very thoughtful of her) but that did not bother us. And it was good because the view was amazing. There is also a very interesting Audio tour which is included. A must do in Boston

Went up for dinner. We had a little trouble finding our way in - go through the mall under the prudential building. Asked security guards for directions. Our waiter was excellent. We enjoyed a spicy lobster bisque, oysters wrapped in bacon, and a creme brulee. All had wine choices paired. This was off the prixe fixe menu - 80 with... More
