We are Hilton diamond members and were happy to see the Ames was acquired by Hilton. The hotel staff are friendly, it is in a great location, and the hotel is nicely decorated. We stayed in 1507 for one night. The room is really well appointed although it did have stained curtains and a stained ottoman. The windows in this...

I booked this hotel when it first joined the Hilton family, and just completed a two night stay with my wife. I was at the original opening of this hotel almost a decade ago (when the restaurant/bar was a hot spot that drew big crowds, and had lines out the door). This hotel has a lot of potential, but the...

I'm love the boutique collection Hilton has added to its often generic product line up. The Ames provides several extra levels quality. The hotel feels warm and intimate. And the best news was not only did I enjoy staying here, but I was also able to accrue my beloved Hilton Honors points. Home run

Room had tiny windows, which was not apparent in the photos. Was surprised this was the only room available to me as a HH member, while my colleague was not and had a much better room. Top floor shower had very little pressure and took 10 minutes to heat up.

Had hard time checking out, card got charged twice for holds, small rooms, paper thin walls, sound machine didn't work. Front desk receptionist didn't have the answers to questions and kept telling me the wrong thing over and over.

I had booked a one bedroom suite for us and my Hilton preferences show high floor as preferred. I was pleasantly surprised when I received a phone call before check in to ask if I minded a lower floor but an even nicer room. Sure, sounds fine, thanks for the call. What they neglected to tell me was that the...

First rate upscale accommodations in the heart of Boston. The newly renovated Hilton property is outstanding in style and function. The third floor suite was an upgrade and while others found the lower floors somewhat noisy, we were not bothered by it. While breakfast was could be improved, it was, for us as Diamond members, sufficient and without charge. The...

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.
