“Great hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

A group of us (15 in total) stayed in the hotel for 10 days. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff had been very accommodating. The location could not be better! We enjoyed the stay very much.

I have to start out by saying my husband works away from home all week are stays in a holiday inn here in pa a lot, so he became a rewards member. After staying so many nights he racks up points towards free nights. we wanted to go to a Sox game and this was the closest holiday inn, so I chose this one. I expected that since it was a "free" room that we would have the worst room in the whole place.it was actually the opposite! Our room was so big and so nice and clean.it was a tower room with a big window to the outside. I don't think I would have liked one of the rooms by the pool because that was a little strange .(unless you have kids who swim)

It was so convenient with the T right outside the front door, we got a few day Charlie card and rode it around like crazy since it was 100 degrees out then.

Breakfast wasn't included and we probably could have gone somewhere else sure much cheaper, but it was so nice and quiet eating there and the buffet was really good.I really liked the man working three who poured my orange juice every morning, he was so nice.

Parking price was ridiculous. $75 for three nights.

There was a mix up with our reservations, which I don't think was this exact hotels fault, but the woman said the manager would call my husband and he actually did.he was very nice.when we were during in the hotel lobby one day enjoying the sure conditioning, he even saidhello to us, which was a nice gesture.

We want to plan a trip somewhere new next year, but we just love Boston so much, we will probably be back.

We can't wait to have you back next year, perhaps the Red Sox will play better too! I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay and will certainly pass along your comments to all involved, as they work tirelessly to ensure all of our gests have a memorable time in Brookline. In regards to our parking prices, we are extremely competive with other hotels, and much more economical than some of the hotels downtown, and I always recommend execatly what you did, park your car at the hotel and take the train to explore, as parking downtown can be a challenge and expensive too. Thanks again for taking the time to respond to us, as we greatly appreciate it.

We spent one night here in mid-October. Our room was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. From the front desk to the room attendants, everyone was really gracious and kind. I was really impressed. The pool was a lot of fun too.

as we were on a coach tour our accomodation had been chosen by the tour company, initially we had a problem getting into the room this was soon rectified with a voucher for a complimentary breakfast as well, the only complaint i had about the room would have to be the height of the loo, it was very low im only just over 5ft and i struggled. the bar area was good the old gentleman behind the bar was brilliant service was brill, we ate at the bar the food was good as well

Thank you for your feedback, in regards to the height of the loo, some of our boutique rooms have a smaller footprint, and a slightly smaller bathroom area. If you travel again to this area and would like a larger room, you can always upgrade to one of the Executive rooms in our tower. I will pass along the great comments to the chef and to the bartender, they will be very pleased with your accolades! Thanks again for taking the time to write us, hope to see you in the future.

The hotel is ideally located with garage parking for parents visiting their students at BU. You can walk to campus or catch the T right at the hotel. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms had free wifi and were comfortable. There are no safes in the rooms. Neighborhood is lovely.

Thank you for your response, we are glad you had a great stay, and yes we are a short walk away from BU and close to many other higher educational institutions. Getting into the city is also relatively easy with the "T" right outside our doorstep . We hope that we will see you in the future when you return to the Boston Brookline area.

My boyfriend and I recently went to Boston on a spur of the moment trip and stayed at the Holiday Inn. We did not arrive until very late in the night, but were greeted by a nice gentleman who made the check-in process very easy (even when dealing with hotel guests who were complaining about things beyond his or the hotels control in the city.) He also helped us find places to eat late night, which we appreciated very much. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. The only downfall I would say would be the price of the parking, but not being from a city, I am used to free parking, so I can't be too picky.

We appreciate your kind words about the check in process and it will be my pleasure to share those comments with the staff as it is our goal is to insure that every guest has the type of experience you did. I am pleased you found the rooms clean and comfortable, as the housekeeping staff prides themselves on this. Our parking prices are very competitive with other garages, and one advantage is you can leave your care for the day and take the "T", and not have to worry about parking downtown. Perhaps next time when you travel to this area and have more time to explore, as in addition to the Red Sox and Boston Marathon there are many other attractions, museums, colleges, world renown Hospitals (free shuttle) and boundless activities a short walk or train ride away. We hope to see you the next time you venture into the city, again thank you for sharing your experience with us!

My family was in Boston for my daughter's college family weekend. After spending many hours researching hotels I decided on the Holiday Inn in Brookline. The hotel is very convenient to the college which was accessible by car, T, or even walking. It is also close to Fenway Park. We loved the street and area as it has nice homes and is not busy like downtown Boston. Check in was quick and easy. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The lobby was comfy with a nice bar area. After reading reviews I knew the better rooms are located in the Tower so that's what I booked. The room had two double beds, chair and ottoman, desk and chair, and dresser with a nice television. The bed was very comfy with lots of great pillows, although it seemed smaller than a double size. The bathroom was nice and clean and average size for a hotel. We did have a view of the area which was nice. Breakfast was included so we were given vouchers. This allowed us to have the buffet or order off the menu. Service in the dining room was prompt and friendly. Some of us ordered from the menu which was delicious. Others ate from the buffet. It had the usual eggs,french toast, bacon, sausage,and homefries. It also had cereal, yougurt, fresh fruit, toast, bagels, and muffins. Everything was good and worth the $10 extra for breakfast. There was a parking garage located next to the hotel which was accessible through a door downstairs. Check out was equally quick and efficient. The only minor complaint was the elevator was extremely slow. Overall I was very satisfied with this hotel and would definately stay here for future visits to Boston.

Room Tip: Tower rooms are quieter and have a view.
