“Nice Hotel, Good Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Not a lot of extra amenities, but the rooms are nice (especially the beds and the big windows) and the location excellent - right across the street from Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall. Service was quite good too.

Great location - north end of Boston. Walking distance of the marketplace, waterfront, restaurants. Wonderful hotel with friendly and helpful staff!

Luxurious rooms - what a wonderful place to escape to! Comfortable beds and a wonderfully relaxing bathroom. Can't wait to go back!

We recently got back from our honeymoon at The Millenium and had a great stay! Our room was absolutely gorgeous with perfect views of Quincy Market! The staff treating us great and was very welcoming. The only thing I would complain about is no free in room coffee, no free wifi and the housekeeping staff didn't do the best job at restocking our bathroom amenities correctly. Other than that it was great! I would recommend splurging for a corner room on the top floor, great balcony and floor to ceiling windows!

Room Tip: Get a room on the 8th floor overlooking the market!

Dear Honeymooners,

Congratulations!

We are fortunate that our location makes for a wonderful honeymoon stay with historic views from nearly every corner of the hotel. As well, our Juliet balconies offer a perch to watch Boston come alive at night.

Please let us know of your one year anniversary, and with a return visit, I will personally supply the champagne.

Your host in hospitality,

Robert Rivers

Nice rooms and friendly staff. I recommend asking for one the "15s" if you can get one. An awesome corner room with two windows. The first one they offered me had only one *very small window and had a whole corner chopped off the room. Since I was there for a few days I asked to be moved, which they did happily. Hence the corner room. Very nice.

Great Location, Great Staff, worked hard to make every need easy. Great Handicapped room and staff had the rented mobility scooter and oxy unit ready for our arrival. The location is perfect for touring the major historical sites as well as things to do in Boston. While most of the area old streets are brick and cobblestone the rented 4 wheel scooter did them without a problem and the restaurants all found parking nooks or tables that accommodated the unit. The hotel is just across the street from the market and Faneuil Hall and a block away from the Italian district.

We had a wonderful stay at the Millennium over the weekend and it was hands down attrituable to Robert Rivers - the general manager. We only exchanged emails but he made sure everything was in order for our arrival (i.e. extra bed, early check in, etc). Some of the best customer services we've experienced. Thank you Robert!

Now on to the hotel. It is really in an ideal location, located right across from Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall (one of the main tourist attractions and stops on the Freedom Trail), MINUTES of walking to the North End (Little Italy), downtown (Financial District) and the Harbour Front. It's also close to the Blue and Green T lines, where you're minutes to the Back Bay/Beacon Hill areas.

Room is spacious and well kept. The hotel does seem a bit dark and "historic" for a 4 stars hotel but nothing to complain about. We enjoyed our little patio overlooking Quincy Market.

Staff was great and helpful. We will definetely return!

Dear West Coast Visitor,

Thank you for your recent visit and post and sharing your experience with our future guests!

Location is key in 'America's Walking City' and just beyond our doors lies today and yesterday with so much to consider. Convenience is key, and we are forunate that our hotel is located on the Freedom Trail in Boston's most historic neighborhood, Faneuil Hall and Blackstone Block.

Our decor preserves the historic traditional influence while infusing a slight contemporary modern look and additional updates in 2014 will highlight some new shades to alter impression.

We hope that you travels east will again include Boston.

Thank you,

Robert Rivers

This hotel was amazing! The location is perfect; right across the street from Quincy Market and a less then a 10 minute walk to the North End. The staff was very helpful and courteous, a real class act! We will be back for sure!
