“Absolutely Splendid!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

This property provides a great location, just steps from Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market, Benefits include; Friendly and courteous staff, valet parking, updated and very clean rooms. I would recommend this hotel for anyone that places priority on location and "things to do close by". I look forward to staying here again in the not too distant future!

With a beautiful view of Faneuil Hall ahead and a view of the Haymarket vendors below, the fifth floor corner room at the Millennium Bostonian was fantastic. Upon arrival, I had an upset stomach from a very turbulent plane ride and the front desk clerk offered me a ginger ale and immediate check in. From the concierge to the room service delivery, this hotel is a top notch place. It melds modern convenience with old world charm.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The room service menu is varied and a bit pricey, but well worth the splurge. One evening after theater most restaurants were not still serving so we ordered some chowder, a burger and a club sandwich. Everything was beautifully served and very good.Other perks included complimentary Starbucks coffee in the morning and hot apple cider in the afternoon. We did have a few minor problems such as a safe that did not unlock and a pocket door that stuck...The maintenance person was there practically before I hung up the phone. The lobby is small, cozy and attractive--yet it is large enough to hold a wedding party the weekend I visited.
The location is perfect. Close to everything--North End, The "T" and the Freedom Trail...
This was my first visit to Boston, If I have the chance to return, I will stay at the Millennium.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade to a "room with a view" of the Marketplace

Great place to stay during a visit to Boston. Location is perfect across from Faneuil Hall and close to North End. The room was very comfortable and quiet. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. Would definitely stay here again on next trip to Boston.

I would stay here every time I go to Boston. Rooms are nice (a little on spendy side) but you get what you pay for. Nice clean room, good bedding and close to sites and transportation. Staff was beyond helpful and friendly. Only complaint is we were on the side the night before the farmers market and they set up all night and make a lot of noise. Request not to be on that side of the hotel. We didn't eat at the restaurant due to the location being right across the street from the "North End"

Room Tip: Avoid Farmer Market side of building if its during that time of year

Dear Senior Contributor,

We appreciate your time and comments and thank you for your recent visit to America's Walking City and Millennium Bostonian Hotel!

Our proximity to the North End, as noted, is just steps from an endless culinary extravaganza of Italian cuisine ranging from Northern Italy to the southern coasts. Truly every restaurantuer shows a special talent and we are always happy to recommend.

We hope that your travel plans again include Boston and that your choice will again will be with the Bostonian.

From a former Minnesotan resident,

Thank you,

Robert Rivers

The location of this hotel could not be better -- across from Faneuil Hall, about the halfway point on the Freedom Trail, making it possible to do half at a time without walking too far! It is also convenient to the "T", near the water and the North End. I was able to walk to everything I wanted to see with the exception of the Museum of Fine Arts and Fenway Park (both an easy trip on the T). The hotel is expensive, but no more so than any other hotel in central Boston, and the rooms are large, modern, and comfortable. I requested a quiet room, and got one. I wish there had been a small refrigerator instead of the ridiculously priced minibar, and did not like having to call room service for ice. Also, I had to laugh at the 2 large bottles of water that were on top of the minibar (therefore warm!), priced at something like $5 each (I don't remember the exact cost). Surely the cleaning staff has to dust these periodically! All in all, though, quite a nice place to stay.

Checked in here after a disappointing stay at the omni. The room and lobby were beautiful, clean and well maintained. Loved the location with lots of shopping and dining. Loved the hotel restaurant . Service was excellent and food above average. Everyone was so nice and went above my expectations. Loved the hot apple cider. Will consider this property for future trips to boston.
