“Best location and hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

For starters we were greeted by Damaris at the front desk who was friendly, efficient and very helpful with all of our needs. The rooms were very comfortable and the view of the Boston skyline was wonderful. I can not say enough about the location. We were able to pick family up at Logan airport and it was a 12 minute drive. We ended up traveling all over New England during our stay and it was easy to get to any of the major routes we needed. The warm cookies at the front desk were a welcomed treat after being out all day. I want to thank Sheila Hayden General Manager for her hospitality and for making our whole families experience unforgettable. I highly recommend staying here whenever you come to Boston.

Room Tip: I suggest asking for the highest floor you can get. The views are phenomenal.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights whilst on a tour of New England for our honeymoon. The service here is excellent, the staff even provided complimentary champagne which was a lovely touch. Perfect location for Boston and for traveling outside of Massachusetts. Don't miss out on Newton Central either as it is a nice spot for a coffee. I would definitely stay here again.

Date of stay 07/11-14/14
Sheila Hayden, General Manager, was so gracious and kind to our party of 4. My daughter Katie and her Fiancé Joseph, live in Florida. This was their first trip to Boston... The North End was just 10 Minutes, from the hotel and the New Hampshire winery was just 45 minutes, we did both in one day, easy access to both...
Staff is over the top, especially Damaris, at the front Desk, could not have ben more gracious and accommodating as we needed an additional room at check in as my brother John decided to join us. Damaris accommodated us, even with a full house and a sold out night. Food for breakfast was excellent, and pricing very reasonable. What brought our stay over the top, is they serve a variety of warm cookies, every day around 4:00pm. What a pleasant surprise at check in. I highly recommend the Crowne Plaza, Boston/Newton to everyone coming to Boston. Great Value!
Top Shelf all the way!

This hotel was perfect for our weekend visit to Boston. The hotel was close to everything and the staff were very friendly. The rooms were extremely clean and modern; and the beds were SOO unbelievably comfortable! We were very happy with the whole experience and recommend these accommodations for anyone staying in the area.

Great Staff. There was a problem with my reservation and Haopbeet Kaob solved it beautifully. If it weren't for the front desk staff, I would have been out of luck. Especially great since they were so busy at the time.

Location. good access to Boston or Logan airport -- since you're on top of the turnpike, but not to the subway. It's in Newton, not Boston proper, but within 3 miles of the airport

Clean, very pleasant and helpful staff, rooms have plenty of space, good beds.
Heated magnified mirror in the bathroom is always a nice touch for shaving. Hairdryer, ironing board, nice shampoos, soap, fragrance, etc.

Food. The breakfast restaurant was directly off the lobby, but was actually quite pleasant and the breakfast buffet was fresh & excellent. There is a restaurant also, which we didn't visit.
There are some decent restaurants within walking distance - - a Bertolli's, Amarin (an upscale Thai place), etc. and a small breakfast place and a tiny Irish bar that serves food across the street, which we didn't visit due to ear-splitting World Cup observances going on, a Subway, etc.

Noise. The hotel literally straddles the Turnpike! We were on the 10th floor, and with the airconditioner running continuously, the traffic noise was ok, but if you turned it off, I think only city-dwellers would be able to sleep well.

Access. You exit the hotel onto a one-way street, cross the turnpike, and then have a half-dozen lanes to choose from, so don't worry if you have to practice a few times to get where you want, just drive around the hotel again and try for a different lane.

Room Tip: Well all the rooms have a great view of traffic on the turnpike, if that turns you on, but ask for a...
