Second time staying at this hotel for business meetings in/out of Boston. Had no other choice since it was booked via corporate, despite almost gotten sick when I last was here 6 months ago (see previous review). Bottom-line, the room temperature is set way too low, and I almost got sick again. Yes, I did turn the A/C unit off... More

Clean and nice hotel in the heart of Boston. Close to the Boston Common Park is excellent for a morning run. Staff is friendly and helpfull. Rooms are small but clean and offer everything you need. Arlington Metro only a few steps away.

On arrival was given a standard room. Went to reception where they gladly accommodated my request. We were on the 11 th floor with no issue re the slow lifts or... More

This hotel is a solid stay for any type of trip. The rooms are really decently sized, and the bathroom is on the smaller size but certainly functional! Obviously the furniture and rooms aren't in perfect condition but what were you expecting? It's a older hotel... but the rooms are comfortable and fine. I certainly enjoyed the large tv and... More

This is NOT a 4 star hotel! Lobby was too busy, valet was too expensive and the wait was long for your car. The hotel rooms were horrible, no headboards on the beds, stuffed with dirty old furniture all marked and scratched up, you could not walk around the beds without turning sideways. The bathrooms were horrid, so old and... More

I hate paying high dollar for a hotel that I am only there to sleep. Boston is not a cheap place to stay, so I was looking for a hotel that was centrally located and reasonable by Boston standards. This place hit the nail on the head. We didn't eat here, so can't comment on the food and bar, but... More

Was in Boston to see my granddaughter perform at Boston Conservatory. Boston Park Plaza was an old hotel but well kept up and very clean. We had a great view. They had a small shop for necessities and a buffet for most meals if you needed it. Very well located! Would stay again.
