We spent five nights this past week at the Crowne Plaza Boston in Woburn, MA. We had stayed there before many times since the home office for the business my husband retired from was just across the highway from the hotel. It has changed hands and been totally renovated in the past nine months since we were last there. What an amazing difference!
We stayed on the fourth floor near the Concierge lounge for guests who are part of the Holiday Inn Rewards program. Every inch of the room and the corridors were brand new and shiny clean. They did not skimp on the reno, using only high quality furnishings and finishings. The bedding was beautiful and extremely comfortable.
We enjoyed the breakfasts either in the lounge or in the restaurant on the premises. They also offer the full menu from the Scoreboard restaurant in the room service menu. Apparently lots of people took advantage of the service - plenty of empty plates outside rooms on our floor.
A free Crowne Plaza shuttle van runs between the hotel and the offices, shops, and restaurants in the immediate area. I took advantage of it one day to go to the Beacon Grille - a great restaurant and another review later for that one. Please note that you DO need a car if you are visiting Boston and staying at this hotel. It is not on the commuter train line, although the Woburn station is not far, and I assume the hotel van would take you there.
The parking at the Crowne Plaza is free for guests. No complaints here. I strongly recommend this location for those with cars. Points north and east like Lexington and Concord and Salem, as well as New Hampshire and Maine are an easy drive from Woburn. The city of Boston is a 20 minute drive if you don't go during peak hours.
