Reviewed November 1, 2012

Stayed at The Midtown Hotel end Oct and was very impressed. Yes ... Decor is a little dated - but the location was excellent, the staff couldn't have been more helpful and the beds were so comfortable. Nice size rooms, very clean and would highly recommend.

Stayed here this month as the start of our tour. The hotel is well placed for visiting Boston. There are two subway stops within 5-10 minute walk. The Prudential centre is close by which is ideal as the hotel doesn't have a restaurant.

The accommodation was ok, bed was comfortable and the water hot, but the hotel is in need of refurbishment. The staff were helpful and friendly.

Stayed for three nights during an organised tour. Position of the Midtown is very good for exploring Boston - in any direction. Quite a big hotel in terms of room number, but built "horizontally" rather than vertically as is more common in Boston, so some long walks from one end of the hotel to the other...
Good size room, clean, comfortable, but still some background smell of cigarettes despite being non-smoking now. Very helpful front desk staff.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms at the back but better views at the front.

My son and I stayed overnight at The Midtown this summer while passing through Boston. We weren't looking to spend the astronomical prices of the nearby hotels but were looking for something clean and a good location. Our room was very large and the beds were so comfortable. The staff of the hotel was extremely nice and the concierge went out of his way to make sure we had all the information we needed for a day of sightseeing. This hotel is a block from the Prudential Center and Copley Place Mall where there are great restaurants and shops. We were even able to catch the Duck Tour from there. We are looking forward to staying there again on our next visit.

The Hotel is well sited, if walking is your game you can reach Quincy Market with 25/30 min,it is an enjoyable walk.
The Hotel does not have a restaurant or Bar.
The room was large enough but in need of redecoration, the air con grill needed a clean and some of the wall paper was begining to peel at seams.Plenty of places to put your clothes
The Bed was comfortable and clean
Shower is over Bath with curtain, worked fine.
Usual noise of people returning to rooms
Our room looked over rear car park
Would I stay here again?, yes I would, if you are expecting 5 star luxury,do not book

Really enjoyed this hotel. Check in was quick and the receptionist was so helpful in showing us in a map what we needed to see as it was our first trip to Boston. Concierge was very friendly also and helpful in booking tours. Hotel is central and u have sub stations either side of hotel. Great food court in the prudential centre. Accommodation was great. Overlooking the street and each afternoon room was cleaned and refreshed. One downfall was that there was no restaurant within but up de street you have lots of options and within you have vending machines.

Stayed at this hotel as part of US tour Oct 9th-11th. Very disappointing, small room overlooking backyard, bathroom cramped with only sliding door and no ventilation. Plumbing suspect.Staff not particularly accomodating. Compared very poorly with other hotels used in Falmouth and North Conway.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms overlooking pool eg 154 etc
