This hotel is right next to the Tufts Medical stop on the orange, which makes getting around Boston very easy. It is also within walking distance of a number of restaurants and a whole foods. The hotel itself is nice, has good internet, helpful staff, and great cookies.

It was very efficient to get to places since the orange line was near, shopping places and restraunts were easy to walk to. The staff was very helpful with answering questions and assisting, I met Pretti who was absolutley friendly and and helpful. I had... More

I stayed her from April 18 - 21 while running the Boston Marathon. Check-in was quick and efficient and I got my oatmeal and chocolate chip cookie.... I later learned that if you asked, you could have more cookies. The only negative l have about my room is the fact that there was only a small shower stall - no... More

We had a wonderful visit to the Doubletree over Easter weekend! It was a great location, easy to walk to restaurants and shopping. We had two rooms-one king and one double, both were spacious and had everything we needed. The staff was fantastic! They were friendly, knowledgeable and super helpful. An added plus was the delicious breakfast buffet. It far... More

We stayed at the Doubletree in downtown Boston for three nights over the Boston Marathon weekend, because my husband was running. After a very poor experience at a Doubletree in Florida earlier this year, we were hesitant to stay at another Doubletree. In fact, even though we are Hilton Honors members, we had a room reserved at another chain hotel... More

The Doubletree, while old, is a great place to stay. It is within walking distance of many historic sites and great restaurants. I even found a wonderful place for a foot massage within a 5 minute walk. The staff was amazing. I would stay here again.

Stayed for the Boston Marathon 2015 and was happy with the location, the staff, and the room. The hotel is a few short blocks from the bus shuttle to Hopkinton as well as the finish line. The room was clean, trendy and spacious for 2 double beds. The staff was exceptionally friendly, helpful, informative and accommodating. They made the marathon... More

The rooms were nicely appointed, well maintained and very clean. Every staff member I encountered was fabulous...very friendly, accommodating and engaged.

When entering the hotel lobby, I thought that I was coming to the local YMCA (actually, the YMCA is next door and hotel guests can use their gym). While I was there, the lobby was in part under renovation, but I did not have the impression that this would change the main impression. Reaching the check-in desk I was pleased... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. So happy that you found our staff welcoming and pleasant. That is always great to hear! I apologize that you got the impression that you were walking into a YMCA upon your arrival. Hopefully this was due to the renovations underway. Due to our close proximity to nearby medical centers,... More

We stayed here for four nights and enjoyed our stay. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was really nice and accommodating. Only one block from a T stop and a bus stop. A 20 minute walk to TD Garden. Would definitely stay here again!
