“A very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

I and my girlfriend really love this hotel. We always stay at this hotel when we visit Boston. The location of the hotel is good and the staff are very professional and helpful. The rooms are decent size and very well maintained. Moreover my girlfriend really loves the bath products they have. And so much so that we even ordered them from Amazon after trying at the hotel. They gave us free breakfast coupon for our second visit to the hotel which was a nice gesture. The breakfast buffet is good and warm. Although I would just like to add that if you don't have a car, then you have to take an express bus which costs $4.50. Or you can take a T bus from Kenmore station which takes longer but cheap.

There is a Chicago uno gill restaurant for a decent dining. Especially, we love the Prana restaurant nearby.Try the restaurant if you are up for some vegan food.

All in all, a decent price hotel with good rooms and excellent service.

It isn't I stay at a hotel built on top of an expressway! And it is unusual to find ear plugs next to the bed...

And the heating and air conditioning systems are a bit dated!

But if you need to stay in this part of Paton and want a nice ran room with great friendly staff, a great rate then you have found the right hotel.

Staff could not have been better! I was at a Fairmont last week; and this staff was better! Spotlessly clean! So turn up the TV have a glass of wine and forget the highway underneath

I had a wonderful stay at the Crowne Plaza Boston-Newton. I go to Boston College frequently and this hotel is by far the most convenient. The front desk staff was extremely cordial. Had a problem with the remote control for my television and the housekeeping staff helped me out. The room was clean and well thought out. Nice bathroom and shower. I would highly recommend this hotel when visiting the Newton/Boston area. Some may say there is a problem with highway noice from the Mass Pike, it was not a problem for me.

I had the opportunity of staying Friday night at the Crowne Plaza Boston - Newton for a Saturday conference.
Although you really need to follow your directions to get to the hotel from the Mass Pike, this hotel is definitely worth the round about entry.
Check in was great - very personable staff.
Paul in the lounge area was attentive and our meals were good - the chicken quesadilla was delish.
The conference banquet was great - attentive staff and wonderful service.

The room was large and very clean. One of my friends noted the sound of the traffic (this hotel is over the Mass Pike) in the evening, but it did not effect my sleep.

I would stay here again.

we were on the 9th floor and are both deep sleepers, so the traffic noise was fine. Our room had a weird plumbing noise every so often that seemed to come from the toilet-- it happened so often and was such a piercing noise that it was really bothersome for our three-night stay. I think we heard the toilet flush for every guest room in our line of plumbing.

The view was nice though, and the room was clean. Housekeeping only came by once during our three-night stay, but it was okay. The pool and fitness center were definite plusses-- very clean and pleasant to use for exercise. The hotel also provides complementary water bottles at the fitness center, which was great.

For the price of the rooms (booked on hotwire), I would give it 4 stars. Remember that they charge $9 / night for parking and do not provide a free breakfast. The internet is okay, but not fast, and there is no fridge / microwave in the room.

I enjoyed my 2 night stay. The room was clean and about what one would expect from a hotel room. However, we stayed on the fifth floor and were directly over the Mass Pike. I did not think that highway noise was an issue, but the hotel provided us with some foam ear plugs just in case. I thought that being able to watch the busy traffic from the comfort of my hotel room was very relaxing. The hotel restaurant was also pretty good, but fairly pricey.

Selected this location because of the easy access to the Mass turnpike. The room was clean but the bathroom was not your typical Crown Plaza standard. The shower did not have a tub and it was evident the bldg was old. The fitness room was one of the better ones I've seen at the Crown Plaza brand in the US. I was alittle disappointed that the hotel staff did not respond to complaint about not receiving the USA today paper as a priority club member. Would definitely recommend this hotel for convienence but not for luxury.

Room Tip: Awesome fitness center.
