On my first trip to Boston, I stayed at the Millennium which was a great choice. It's a short walk from the T station, directly across the street from Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market for shopping, and very close to the North End for great Italian food. I would stay again.

Dear Recent Guest,

We value reviews from our guests and thank you for taking time to recognize the Millennium Bostonian from your recent visit.

Location is a key component when selecting a hotel, especially in America's Walking City with a dozen historic landmarks just steps and blocks from our front door. Although, we realize that location is only valued when the overall experience measures equally, and it appears that we were able to achieve our goal.

Please let me know when your next travel returns you to Boston so that I might assist with your room selection.

Truly, thank you,

Robert Rivers

If you are looking for a great downtown Boston location, it doesn't get better. Across the street from Faneuil Hall, an easy walk to the North End, the Garden, the financial district and the harbor -- and easy access to the T. We've stayed all over the city over the years, and this location is my favorite by far.

The rooms are spacious and well appointed, and have more character than the major chain hotels. Bed was extremely comfortable and great room darkening drapes made for a great night sleep. Staff was very helpful and cheerful. We were on the top floor and enjoyed relaxing on the small rooftop patio....a lovely find!

My only complaints were that Valet parking at $45 a night seemed a little steep, but probably to be expected given the location. Was also disappointed to learn in-room internet was $9.95 a night -- free wifi in the lobby. I don't remember the last time I paid for Internet at a hotel.

All in all, We enjoyed this hotel and would absolutely stay again.

Dear Contributor,

Thank you for selecting Millennium Bostonian Hotel while visiting Boston and we look forward to your return.

We agree that Boston parking can seem expensive and we try hard to maintain a fee slightly less than our nearest competitors. Unfortunately parking spaces in our great city are at a premium and thus the expense.

As far as our WiFi, we offer some solutions to avoiding the expense through our Summer Freedom program, booked via our website or 800#, or by joining M&C Loyalty Club at time of registration. My apologies that the options were not clear and we will evaluate our arrival practices.

We look forward to your return,

Robert Rivers

I wanted to surprise my wife for our 15th wedding anniversary. The location was perfect! A short walk over to the north end for cannoli and people watching… Across the street to Faneuil Hall for a quick snack and pretty much right in the center for anything that we needed to get to.

The room was perfect and the oversized bathrooms and tubs were great. I was especially impressed when we return from the Red Sox game to find a bottle of champagne and a plate of desserts waiting for us. I had mentioned in passing at check-in that we were in town celebrating our anniversary. Very nice pickup and gesture by the front desk team to make a visit that more special!

We have stayed at this hotel before and we love the location. You are near the Haymarket T station and right across the street from Quincy Market. Then all you have to do is walk across the Greenway and you are in the North End. We have stayed at this hotel years ago and they remembered us. We were upgraded to a lovely room overlooking the market and Faneuil Hall. I will admit the balcony was small but it made for great pictures. Our room was fabulous, a private dressing room with a closet, right next to the beautiful bathroom and a fabulous shower. We ended our evening in the hotel bar and it was very relaxing. The bar was preparing for a special event, but they never made us feel unwanted. Long story short, after we had left the hotel the next morning I realized I was missing a ring. We went back there on a long shot to see if it had left it in the room or someone had found it. The staff was so attentive but no ring had been found. We started to head home and we got a call, my ring had been found. I have to say that is terrific. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wanted a close location to the happenings in Boston. The staff was superb!

Dear Senior Contributor,

Thank you for your recent stay and I, along with my team, appreciate the recognition provided in your review.

Our team is sensitive of guests' personal belongings and every room is detailed to insure that lost items are not inadvertently discarded. As you can imagine, the smallest items, such as a ring can be easily tossed with the linen and our team is alert. We are always ecstatic when we are able to reconnect a guest with a lost item and then share comments with the team.

We look forward to a future visit,

Robert Rivers

I chose this location based on proximity to a vast assortment of restaurants within walking distance. The North end is an Italian food lovers mecca and the variety will not disappoint. The Hotel is across from Faneull Hall and Quincy Market another great shopping and dinning area.
Only a few blocks from the waterfront and Long Wharf. We had a wonderful King room with julliet balcony overlooking the Market . Beds and pillows extremely comfortable and large tiled shower with great shower head - very important !

We arrived at 2 in the morning and the only bottled water available was in the room for $6.50 (plus 15% stocking fee, plus tax....total 7.94). A little steep for us. They could certainly have a drink machine somewhere in the hotel!! The very same bottle of water was available at a 7-11 three blocks away for $2.89. Room was nice with a view of Faneuil Hall, bathroom was very nice. Carpeting in the hotel (including our room) was very stained which gave us the feeling that things weren't quite so clean. The hotel is located right across the street from Faneuil Hall with all of the great places to eat and several choices for tour busses. And it is walking distance to the North End Italian restaurants. Valet parking was $45 a night but the valets were courteous and prompt.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking Faneuil Hall.

Dear Contributor,

We appreciate and recognize your comments from your recent stay and apologize that any area offered concern.

Millennium Hotels is finalizing plans to replace the public hallway carpets due to a shading caused by defective installation which cannot be shampooed away. This appearance tarnishes our image and is without reason, unacceptable.

We realize that location is only one component that insures a favorable visit, and we will soon insure that product, carpet, is corrected.

Thank you for your visit and we look forward to your return,

The location simply cannot be beat. Just across the street from Quincy Market. Yet, not noisy at all, surprisingly.

Once you enter, you're hit by how beautiful and styling (yet unpretentious) the lobby is. The rooms are just as impressive. Big bed, great furniture, large bathroom. Super-clean.

Everyone's attitude was great. From the parking valets, to the front desk, to the cleaning staff walking around the hotel.

We highly recommend it and we will definitely be returning.

Dear Friend to the North,

It was a pleasure reading and sharing your online review with our team and we thank you for selecting Millennium Bostonian Hotel during your recent trip!

Our location remains as the oldest working block in North America, Blackstone Block, and what is Boston was built around this address. Certainly the views of 8 historic landmarks from varying guestrooms immediately creates the aura of being in a living museum and offers a treasure nearly around every corner.

We hope that you when you travel south, again, we might be able to assist in Boston, and please feel free to send along an e-mail.

Thank you,

Robert Rivers
