We stayed on the 5th floor and although the room was small, the bathroom was a great size. Yes the rooms and the building needs work, but for the price and the location we would definitely stay there again. It was clean and the added bonus was that breakfast was included. What more can you ask for in a big... More

An old hotel and thus the rooms are small . Ours had two double beds and they were very clean . Bathroom v dated but clean. Breakfast enough too take the edge off hunger . Nice stroll from Fanheil hall and close to Boston Common .

convenient location. facility is worn out and old. room is tiny. friendly service, very small room and small shower. If you are taller than 5'8" or weight more than 160 lbs. Don't think about it. If you are travel more the 2 in the family. Your family will never speak to you or travel again.

We stayed at the third floor and were surprised by the large bathroom. Even though the rooms could definitely use an update (and were fairly small), the place was very clean and staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was nothing special but since the hotel is located near the centre of Boston (theatre district), eating out is no problem.... More

Lovely old hotel which is spotless and the staff are nice and friendly. The rooms are a little cramp but the bathroom is spotless. The location is brilliant you walk out of the hotel turn right, walk down one block and you are at Boston Common and a few minutes walk from the Cheers bar. The parking is in a... More

I stayed here for three nights with my daughter for her college visit. Three nights including Saturday night for $830 (double) is not exactly cheap but perhaps modest by Boston's standard. Having to arrange this trip quite late we did not have much choice. On a plus side the location is very good -- easy walking distance to restaurants, Starbucks,... More

We are certainly glad that you enjoyed your stay overall; however, wish that you did have a 'quieter' stay while here. Although the sounds of the city can be loud as all city hotels endure, we certainly want to make sure that we take the proper precautions to ensure that the rooms are properly sound proofed so that our guests...

Room was tiny and in need of update. The bathtub was suitable for someone three foot or shorter. The room was noisy both from outside noise and hallway/lobby noises. The breakfast was mediocre. On the plus side, the staff was quite friendly and helpful and we were allowed to store luggage after checkout until we left for the airport.

Thank you for your review; however, I wish you had a more enjoyable stay. We are constantly making upgrades to soundproof our rooms and have a diligent preventative maintenance program to ensure that all rooms are ready for guest rental; however, we clearly missed the mark during your stay. I will be going through all of our first floor rooms... More

The Milner is a three star hotel with wings. It is spotlessly clean and staffed by a consistently friendly staff. The bed was firm and the bathroom surprisingly large. We chose the Milner because of its proximity to the theater district. It is also convenient for those wanting to walk the Liberty Trail, enjoy the Common, and/or shop. It is... More

This is a beautiful tiny historic hotel in Boston's Theatre District. Rooms are tiny, but clean and comfortable, with good beds and good quality linens. The staff were friendly and the breakfast free. The staff were all very helpful with our requests. Compared to other properties in the Theatre District or in Back Bay, it is very inexpensive - but...
