Spent a few nights there for a family gathering. Great location right across from Faneuil Hall and walking distance to other attractions including the North End and Aquarium. Very contemporary feel to this hotel, a nice contrasting feel to the historic downtown architecture. A nice touch are the balconies (a bit small) that actually open up so you can let fresh air in and enjoy the views.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view! The best ones are the balconies overlooking Faneuil Hall!

My wife and I stayed here several weekends in the 1980s and 1990s, first on assignment for Travel & Leisure which wanted a write up for its northeastern edition soon after it opened. This was in the glitzy '80s and the hotel had sparkly effects that went with the time (little white lights all over everything). It was very cool and usual, a reinvention of several 19th century commercial brick buildings in what used to be the Boston waterfront area overlooking Quincy Market. We absolutely loved it: small, high attention to detail, a bright, warm decor and a snazzy modern remake that saved something old. Now a big corporate hotel chain owns it. The decor and layout in the lobby is totally different --- dark, spare, more formal. The rooms aren't as charming as I recall them either; strictly functional.
Loved our balcony, but there were a bunch of squashed cigarette butts out there now housekeeper had noticed. Loved the 40 inch flat screen TV but found it astounding the hotel connected it to a non-HD cable signal so you got a big blurry smeary picture. Also astounded you had to pay each day for wireless access and sign in on every device over and over again. Bed not that comfortable for either of us ... sheets made up too low, pillows that turned flat as pancakes with the weight of your head.
But overall, the staff was sharp (we didn't demand much), the room was completely comfortable, the view over Quincy Market/FanueiL Hall was fantastic, and the location perfect for walks to the North End or out Tremont Street. T stations nearby, taxis easy to come by, Aquarium a few blocks away. We hadn't been there in 19 years and it was fabulous that I-93 has been sunked into the Dig Dig and no longer darkened and hemmed in the neighborhood.
There were noisy people who spoke loudly in the hall and slammed their door in the middle of the night. Also some noise from the market area below, including a drumming man who seemed to never stop. Today Show did a location shoot from across the street our first morning there. That was fun!

Room Tip: Quieter and cheaper NOT facing Quincy Market but the view is fabulous on the south-facing streetside rooms.

Dear Recent Guest,

Thank you for your thorough review of Millennium Bostonian Hotel and we value every comment. Your comments identify opportunity for future improvements which we will address and honor your concerns.

Millennium Hotels and Resorts acquired this hotel in 2000 and operates a small collection of 13 hotels in the United States. Boston's redesign in 2008 focused on maintaining the historical significance of the Blackstone Block while infusing modern touches to cater to today's demanding travelers. As a returning general manager, prior role in Boston from 1997 to 2003, I also realize that reintroduction of local hostorical artifacts, once displayed throughout the lobby, will appeal to returning clientele.

Guest room style and product selection is an ever evolving program in our industry, and we understand personal preference for pillows and thus offer a second option in each guest room closet along with additional choices through our housekeeping operation. However, it appears that our collateral to promote pillow optoins requires upgrading to insure guest awareness.

Truly, your comments will be shared with my team and I am confident that we can impact future guest stay,

Gratefully,

Robert Rivers
General Manager

Stayed at this hotel for a week in February. The location can't be beat! Right next to Quincy market on North street. Cab ride from the airport cost around $25.

The view from the seventh floor rooms is spectacular and I've included a picture along with my review.

Room service food is not the best but not too bad either.

The only swipe I have about this hotel is that you already pay a lot for the room but they still want you to pay an additional ~$10 for internet every 24 hours. Come on!!

This hotel is located at the edge of Fanual Hall in Boston. The Parking is not included but never really is when you stay in Boston. There is a Parking Garage directly across the street behing the Hard Rock though. Park on your own there and you can save afew dollars over paying for Valet parking, that is the same place they park your car.This makes for a great stay if you plan on staying out late as it is a very short/safe walk back to the hotel.

Room Tip: Book the rooks with the balcony. They face Fanual Hall.

Hotel is located within walking distance of many attractions in Boston. The room was very good with a view of the Boston skyline. The restaurant however is not recommended. They were at the end of a holiday weekend and they were short of supplies. The dinner choices were limited, the service was brusque and the pricing was standard for a Boston intown hotel. Better options are a short stroll. All in all a place to base your Boston touring.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor
