“Boutique feel in a superb location”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Great location a stone's throw away from Boston Common and the subway, with loads of choices for eating and a Starbucks just around the corner. Happy hour is a nice touch, as well as the fruit infused water in the lobby which we always had on arriving and leaving. Very comfortable stay, free wifi we are thankful for. Will stay here again.

Dear chris_explorer -

Thank you for choosing Nine Zero on your recent trip to Boston. The bar and restaurant selection in the area is really exploding - including under our own roof with Highball Lounge - a vintage cocktail bar featuring our inhouse mixologist, Shaher Misif - which is due to open in November. And good news if you are looking for coffee but not feeling these brisk New England mornings - we feature Caffe Vita coffee every morning. Venti lattes, however are about a block away...in every direction.

Best,

Mark

We stayed at the Nine-Zero for three nights. Arriving just after 6pm, we were checked in quickly and given a glass of wine - great touch. Originally, we booked a king premier room (which we stayed in the first night), but upgraded to a skyline view room for two nights - definitely worth it. Kimpton service was at its finest - we had tea sent to the room multiple nights to battle a cold, desk staff was exceptionally friendly and efficient, rooms were cleaned well during the day.

Hotel has an excellent location - we took the free bus from Logan airport and then walked from the station to the hotel. Cab ride back to the airport only ran us $20 with the toll. Easy access to Downtown, the Freedom trail, shopping is one street away, Chinatown is a five/ten minute walk, quick trip to North End or Fanueil Hall.

Would stay here again, would recommend to everyone.

Room Tip: Go for a skyline room or ask for a good view on the front side of the building. Front side is appare...

Dear Moritz0610,

You're a trooper! Battling a cold and you still managed to squeeze in a whirlwind stay of the city. We like to think as an urban hotel we have a view for everyone. Some of those are skylines. Some are of graveyards. Some are of locals - hard at work. And a couple are even of early 20th century urban architecture.

Thanks for staying with us and see you again soon.

The staff at the Nine Zero is fabulous. The free wine reception was a wonderful little treat. The location is fantastic - close to everything, easily walkable to a number of great areas such as quincy market, the north end and the commons. I loved the modern decorations throughout the hotel. When we arrived we were upgraded from a room with two doubles to a suite. This sounded good at the time, but we were three adults and the suite had only one bed with a pull out so one of us had to sleep on the pull out which was very uncomfortable. The suite itself was gorgeous - very well appointed. Other than the pull out, I really enoyed our stay at this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

Dear bridgetnh,

We don't like to think of it as tossing and turning on a sleeping sofa. We prefer "re-living one's youth". Sorry the suite wasn't so sweet this time. Next time we'll make sure your room's beds do NOT transform into other pieces of furniture. But we're happy everything else went so well.

Thank you for choosing Nine Zero.

Happy travels,

Mark

Nine Zero is nearly perfectly located an the center of things to do in Boston. The Common is across the street, the T is close by, Beacon Hill and Faneuil Hall are close by, the restaurants and shops of Back Bay are a short walk, the North End a short cab ride over, Copley Place....I could go on, but you get the picture. Even our average room (not upgraded) had plenty of space and the beds are wonderful (my wife and I even purchased Kimpton pillows after a stay last year). The wine reception is a treat, and having dogs running around (very pet-friendly hotel) adds a homey touch that makes Kimptons stand out from other luxury hotels like Four Seasons.

We'll be back!

Dear Mark D,

I'm sure other luxury hotels tolerate dogs - certainly the quiet, tiny ones that fit in purses that no one would know were there. But of course we do love them (and their owners) and will even help keep an eye on them if they have anxiety about being alone while their parents' tour the city.[author's note: dogs typically do not roam the corridors like an Attenborough animal documentary].

Hope to see you again soon.

This is my first stay at a Kimpton hotel and I will definitely be back! The staff was very helpful in recommending places to dine. They seemed genuinely interested in making sure we had an excellent stay. The rooms were comfortable and private. The location is safe and central to so many sights and restaurants. I found that many of the people staying at the hotel were loyal Kimpton customers. Very pet friendly!

Dear SeasideWonderer,

First Stay!!!!! Cue digital balloon drop!!! We're happy to have you on board (and of course a little disappointed you took this long to find Kimpton). Never fear there are 60 to choose from - including some great properties in Florida if you 're just looking for a short staycation (or to put up family members who are visiting). Epic and Surfcomber in Miami and Vero Beach Hotel & Spa in Vero Beach, unironically. But most importantly - thank you for choosing Nine Zero on your maiden voyage.

Best

If you've ever stayed in a Kimpton Hotel, you know what to expect: nicely appointed rooms in a convenient location (just a block away from Boston Common and the Park Street T station) and lots of little extra touches, especially if you're a member of Kimpton InTouch, their free customer loyalty program (e.g. free WiFi and a $10 minibar credit).

Our room wasn't especially large, but more than adequate for our purposes. It came equipped with a large-screen TV, iPod dock, JVC CD system, a martini bar (complete with a corkscrew in case you bring your own wine), and a small refrigerator/minibar. The latter is a nice plus since you can store take-home containers from restaurants there along with anything else you might want (we bought some cheese at a local grocery, for example). You'll have to remove the mini-bar items to put yours in, but since you're only charged for what your actually consume rather than what you remove, that's not a problem. I'm told they'll also provide you with a second refrigerator if you ask for it.

The queen bed was large and comfortable (again, typical Kimpton), with special pillows available on request (I got a spine and neck support pillow that was very helpful). There are also fluffy zebra pattern bathrobes that are nice for lounging around in the room. There was also a desk with an adjustable ergonomic chair.

Unfortunately, the hotel restaurant was being remodeled while we were staying there, so we didn't get a chance to check it out. That said, there are so many great restaurants within easy walking distance that it wasn't much of an issue. They did serve continental breakfast in one of the hotel function rooms daily for $15, but we didn't think what you got (juice, coffee, granola, yogurt, fruit and bagels/English muffins) was worth it.

Other typical Kimpton touches included the complimentary wine reception in the lobby from 5-6 PM daily as well as free coffee every morning. An in-room coffee maker was available, but we didn't use it. The concierge offered some good restaurant suggestions and even made a reservation for us at one close by (Oceanaire, where we also got a free appetizer as a result of the referral).

Nine Zero isn't cheap, but rates were competitive with other higher-end hotels in the area. You pay a bit of a premium for the location, but we thought it was a fair trade-off.

Dear Thedogesl -

Well... I think you have just about said it all. Literally, nothing else can be said about Nine Zero.

Except that our new lounge featuring vintage cocktails is due to open in November (with the return of our full breakfast option as well).

Thank you for the thorough and flattering review.
