Just one night here. the position in Boston is very convenient and this is a major plus point. thats about all. The room was basic, very small with metal stanchions sticking out from the sides of the bed determined to catch you as you passed by. The breakfast was very poor. Very limited and all the utensils and crockery were... More

To start with there is no parking available at the hotel. We parked up the road about 5 min away at a parking station. Certainly no disabled access as you enter up a set of steps into the foyer. The foyer is very unimpressive, cramped and outdated decor. Staff were helpful enough and let us store our bags until our... More

We spent five nights at the Milner while visiting Boston for a conference. We couldn't get a room at one of the conference hotels, so we did a search and decided to try the Milner, which seemed to be a unique historic alternative. We discovered that the location is truly exceptional. It was a manageable walk to the convention center... More

Firstly lets get the elephant out of the closet... the price. Many people complain that for a two or two plus hotel the price is high. Based on the cost of hotels in Boston this is not high (we paid $247 plus tax per night), if you want more space and you want a waiter at breakfast then just pay... More

Well, we were told before arriving, that the parking was free. Needless to say it is NOT, and $40 in tickets ruined my experience. The bed was small and soft. Beautiful views out of the Windows.good location, but greatly overpriced.

The Milner Hotel in Boston is a small, old, hotel situated in a great location for tourists. The rooms are also old and small but the price is not! But then, no place in Boston is cheap, particularly when you add on the approximately 15% "accomodation" tax! And parking was a choice of 'across the street' for $40/24 hours, or... More

Overpriced for a budget hotel - they also have a dim view of English decor if their interpretation is shabby, peeling and dark. Small room, no door on bathroom, little service to speak of - good location but location isn't everything. Finished my stay in Boston at another hotel

This place is nice! The value was amazing and the room was clean and comfortable. Location is awesome!! Trust me this is the place to stay at! We were walking distance from all the cool places in Boston. It was quite cold in Boston and it felt amazing to walk into our nice clean warm room.

This hotel is located in the theatre district in Boston. It is well located and at walking distance from Boston downtown. This is its only value on my opinion. The hotel needs a deep renovation. You can see signs of poor manteinance and care everywhere you look at and it seems their owners do not care about it. If you... More

Stayed for one night 19th April. Booked the hotel over the telephone was quoted one price but when checking out we were charged an additional charge as a marathon tax (we stayed the Saturday night before the marathon on a Monday) the room was very small, view of a brick wall, not especially clean and felt more budget than a...
