We only stayed one night but highly recommend this recently refurbished central hotel. The lobby is very busy and noisy with the restaurant in the middle and quite loud music but the room (which looked into the internal large area light well of the hotel, so no view) was extremely quiet and comfortable with the best king bed we'd slept...

We arrived very early for check in as we where traveling . We were greeted at reception by Bruce. He was extremely helpful and checked us in and took our bags while we went sight seeing/shopping. We arrive back at the hotel at 1.30 but our room still wasn't ready , but Bruce was super helpful and upgraded us to... More

I commuted from NYC to Boston fairly consistently for about a year and a half and stayed at the Park Plaza every time I came into town from 2014-2015. It was the most inexpensive option, in a quiet neighborhood, close to the Commons and to transportation. The rooms are pretty run down (though they renovated the lobby), with some rooms... More

I've stayed at the Park Plaza many times, as my company's Boston office is across the street from the hotel. After some less than stellar experiences, I had begun to book other hotels, but I returned to the Park Plaza on a recent business trip and was pleasantly surprised. The room was small, as other reviewers have noted, but as... More

My husband and I are passing through Boston and are staying here. We got a cozy room, which lives up to its name, COZY (aka TINY- 756sq ft). The size isn't too bad since most of our time will be out in the city. However....the shower is terribly small, and the curtain was too short for the shower so our... More

As someone who has done plenty of traveling and stayed in many luxury hotels I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised at the ascetics of the hotel, efficiency of the friendly staff and great location in Boston. Located a block away from fine shopping, beautiful parks and great restaurants (2 located in the hotel) everything was very convenient.... More

We booked through Priceline and know that can make a difference when properties are full as they were. For some reason Boston was crazy this past weekend. Last time we stayed here, also through Priceline, we had a very nice and spacious room looking across at the Smith & Wollensky steak house castle. This time our room was about 10... More

Dear Guest, We've researched your booking and it appears that your original booking this stay of a Cozy Queen was actually upgraded to a Cozy King by our Team.

The room for this price is surprisingly small. The hotel reception is too eager to charge extra for a normal sized room. I can literally hear when and how long my neighbor takes bath. The only good thing about the hotel is location, lobby and restaurants.

This was a great hotel. There are 2 good restaurants in the lobby. The location is close to high end shopping. The staff is friendly and helpful. They were able to hold our luggage during the last day of my conference which was very good. Rooms are spacious and recently renovated.

I booked rooms for me and three friends. My concerns were wonderful clean rooms, comfortable beds,a good and safe location for walking around Boston and a great lounge. My finicky friends liked the hotel a lot. And so did I. Since then, my sister and another friend stayed there as well and really liked it.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
