A year ago when I stayed at the Park Plaza, I noted that the lobby had been spruced up and that indications were that the floors and rooms were due for an update. I am happy to report that the floor and room I stayed in for one night were spanking new, very hip, and modern. The valet - at...

Very large hotel, which lacked the personal touch. Extremely noisy in lobby area...with music playing as well. Our first room was described as cozy...which meant extremely small. No where to put clothes or cases. We couldn't get around end of bed. No ventilation / light in ensuite. No internet unless a fee of $12.99 was paid per day. We upgraded...

With It's Back Bay location, close to prime shopping, historical and dining sites, many within easy walking distance, the Park Plaza is close to the action. Arlington T-stop is across the street. Meals were fine. Rooms a bit small even after major refurbishing, but clean and comfortable. Price high but visited over Marathon weekend.

Arriving at the Hotel, we found a friendly atmosphere and a helpful attitude from all the staff with whom we had contact. Ashley behind the check in desk was helpful and the bellman who helped us with our bags was the same. Then we had to check with Roger the concierge who was both knowledgeable and very helpful with confirming...

This room was great for the price. Simple, but well appointed. Location was the major draw and it did not disappoint! Walking distance to Boston Common, and most great neighborhoods. Very close to public transportation. They recently redid the lobby area and it is very nice. We were very happy with our stay. Very good for a young-ish couple trying...

Stayed here for AAN medical conference in a "superior" room with view of "courtyard". Rooms are tiny, barely any space to move in bathroom and only a TV tray as a desk. We had breakfast in the hotel, very poor service. I had to ask three times for a coffee refill from two different people. It wouldn't be bad except...

This is a fantastic hotel! The lobby is beautiful, and the service is amazing. Alexander helped us with check in and truly got our trip off on the right foot. He was beyond friendly and courteous.

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.
