This is not a luxurious hotel. If you go in with this expectation, you will be satisfied with your stay. I have stayed here twice in a one-month period and have experienced a king standard room and a petite room. I paid for both via the hotel's own website (180 for the standard room and around 80 for the petite)
Let me tell you what a difference between the two there was.
The standard had everything you'd expect to need in a Boston hotel room. Updated room. Great view. Somewhat small, but you come to expect that in this city unless you shell out serious bucks. Space is a valuable commodity here.
The petite is really meant for one traveler. Some rooms have no desk or closet. The shower is so tiny it makes you laugh. And who really is comfortable in a double bed with another person?
The first petite room was located next to the elevator shaft. Really? Who decided to weigh the benefits of putting a traveler here for the night instead if making this room a maintenance closet? I don't know who could sleep with the noise and vibration. We requested a room change and were quickly accommodated with prompt and courteous staff. But really, why put us in the elevator shaft to begin with?!
Also, be it known to all that the thermostats on the wall are there for show. It's always been too warm and I have to open the window. Even after turning the heat off completely, the heater pumps hot air continuously. And this is in all 3 rooms that I have experienced. Luckily, the Park Plaza is the one of the few hotels in Boston with windows that open.
This place offers rates at a far deeper discount than any others in close proximity. Just have reasonable expectations and you will get what you need.
