“Poor value for money”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Whilst the hotel is in a great location and the room we paid for was exactly as described - we were let down on our stay here by small things that really matter to us.

We paid for parking within our rate, but when giving the car to the valet he warned me that they sometimes double charge so to check my bill. It turned out to be a great tip as they had charged me twice. When you have paid for a presidential suite, you don't want to be treated like a mug and have to go through the hassle of arguing your bill.

As a diamond member we were given breakfast vouchers for the main area as they "don't have a lounge at this time". The breakfast shambles can only be described as a scene from Fawlty Towers. You wouldn't send your worst enemy to be subjected to the farcical scenes and downright rude employees at this location.

Sadly in the evening the location is less useful as there are no local places to get snacks from and most things near the hotel are shut.

We enjoyed our weekend stay at the Hilton Boston Downtown at Faneuil Hall. Dining in an unfamilar city can be a challenge and Barry's recommendations made the difference between a memorable stay and a disaster. His recommendations were spot on and he easily segued from place to place based on our dietary restrictions. He never made us feel demanding (though we are) and always had a smile. We travel extesively and the quality of the staff equaled and generally exceed that in Europe. Though the decor is dated and in need of refurbishment, the thoroughly professional staff more than made up for any shortfalls of the building. We were cordially welcomed when we checked in and offered a nice upgrad to a suite at a nominal fee pr $50.00 per night. It was far superior to the standard room and worth it if your budget can absorb the extra cost. The only significant drawback was the noise from the restaurant during party nights on Friday & Saturday. It was LOUD. We aren't sticks-in-the mud and like to party as much as the next person, but this was really excessive. If they don't address this, I'm afraid it will hurt future bookings. All in all, a great experience. We had a great trip to Boston where everything worked out well.

Room Tip: Go for a suite and on a high floor to escape weekend pary noise from the restaurant.

The Faneuil Hall Hilton is a terrific property which has been updated and is well appointed. The service is excellent and if you have any challenges, Michael is adept and responsive to "making it right"

Be sure to check out the restaurant. It is a step above most hotel restaurants.

We stayed here for 4 days.
The guest service was excellent.
They upgraded the room for signing in to Membership.
Also the restaurant was open late night which was convenient after a long day out sightseeing

Great location downtown, very nicely appointed hotel. Easy access to airport and local restaurants. Staff were friendly and courteous and the bed was divine. Restaurant was good although the food choices were more bar food than healthier choices. The number of screens in the bar was a little overwhelming and as much as i enjoy a good sports event, their presence made it difficult to have a intimate conversation with friends. Still enjoyable nonetheless.

Great location in the very centre of boston. All main attractions within walking distance.

rooms ok as you would expect from hilton,friendly staff.

expensive but all boston hotel are.

my two complains are that they charge 15usd for wifi in the room what is ridiculous. We travelled for over two weeks in the usa and was the only hotel charging for this.
Free wifi in the lobby is not good enough.

They also advertise an airport shuttle but it does not exist. Taxi is about 20 bucks so not a major issue.

We were greeted by their friendly and efficient doormen and were able to check in around noon. The concierge desk advised using the hop on hop off Old Town Trolley. Great advice! The room was spotless. The hotel was centrally located within walking distance of many attractions.All in all a great one night stay.Will be back!
