“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The location of this hotel is great. It's easy walking distance to great sights, restaurants and shopping. The room was very well appointed and the folks at the front desk were very nice. I like Kimptons as I feel like they offer a very good value and their properties also have some personality. The Nine Zero is an excellent representation of this.

Dear orangeguy,

Thank you for staying with us last year! Hopefully you will have another opportunity to visit us this winter to enjoy some snow. Winter is definitely a New England holiday. And if can't come back...you should try to visit any of the number of Kimptons based in San Francisco for a staycation - it is our home base.

Take care,

Mark

We stayed at the Nine Zero this past weekend. Our room had a fantastic view. The room was well appointed and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is fantastic. Short walking distance from Quincy Market, great shopping and a subway stop.

Dear Chadliak,

Lovely as an adjective is...awesome. It evokes that refinement, that sense of calm, that aura of what we are trying to deliver. Of course, all I hear is Dame Judy Dench referring to a cup of tea - but I can't say there is a single thing wrong with that idea.

Thank you so much for staying with us,

Mark

my boyfriend and i stayed at the nine zero on our recent long weekend visit to the city. it is conveniently located to most anything. we walked the freedom trail to the north end, and dined and shopped in the back bay with ease; no need to access our valeted vehicle. although we did get locked out of our room due to faulty key cards, the issue was resolved promptly and with apology. staff was exceptionally accessible and friendly. unfortunately we missed the wine reception for the two evenings we stayed, but it looked enjoyable as well! great showers, nice room size, great decor. our pup was set up to be pampered in our room, although we decided against bringing her at the last minute since we weren't sure of weather. if you are a state or federal government employee, inquire about a discount! we will certainly return!

Room Tip: sign up for kimpton intouch, and you may be emailed last minute discount upgrades! also, inquire abo...

Dear nic616,

Terribly sorry about the small key issue. The mag stripe keys have a million advantages but sometimes they just make you want an old-fashioned steel cut key. No worries about battery issues, or computer programming, or de-magnetizing the card by keeping it too close to a cell phone. Happy that we could resolve it expeditiously for you.

Make sure you bring the pup next time!

Happy travels,

Mark

Perfect location, right on the Boston Common, easily within walking distance from Quincy Market, Newbury Street, the North End, Chinatown, and great pubs/bars. The hotel itself is in great shape and well-kept, and the valet parking is the easiest parking there is in the city. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to stay in downtown.

Room Tip: Top floors have the best views of the city.

Dear NittanyLion88,

The valet parking is incredibly easy. You don't even have to use your mirrors! Plus it gives you more of an opportunity to see Sammy, Peter, Seifu, and Binny - our door team. Some of the friendliest guys I have met - anywhere.

Best,

Mark

The Nine Zero is ideally located near many of the Historic Sites in Boston. It is a short walk to the Boston Common or Quincy Market. The Hotel itself is very modern, chic and trendy, and the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. We recommended it to out of town guests who came to our daughter's wedding, and we stayed there also.

Room Tip: We had a view of the city.

Dear rew95,

The juxtaposition in your title is always a fun one. How to balance being a business in a historic city without historic ties? Location! Paul Revere didn't sleep here but he is sleeping across the street!

Congratulations on the marriage of your daughter! May that be a joy I never have to know. Thank you for inviting your out of town guests to stay with us. Hopefully you will be able to return at a more relaxing time and have just as much fun!

Take care,

Mark

I travel a lot and always stay at a Kimpton if I can. The rooms are perfect. They have the most comfortable beds. The staff - especially the front desk, extremely helpful and friendly. Well stocked mini bar. Great location.

Dear mageedah,

Thank you for staying with us on your recent travels with friends. We are always happy to host Kimpton loyalists. Not to mention those who have yet to be converted (aka everyone else). Hopefully you are an InTouch member and were able to Raid the well-stocked Minibar.

Best,

Beautifully appointed hotel with good service. Good location. A little annoying that you need to become a member to get wifi with no charge, but not the end of the world (the hotel already knows you). Staff are friendly and helpful.

Overall well worth the price for comparable hotels and locations.

Room Tip: Stay on higher floors if you have a road side room.

Dear mongolovestogo,

Mongo - I promise you are no pawn in the game of wifi! We certainly do not want to annoy you with the process but we don't want you to miss out on the huge benefits of the InTouch program. PLUS now whenever you stay at a Kimpton - we will know who you are AND what you like. Only not as weird as that sounds.

Happy travels,

Mark
