Great location close to everything.

Staff was friendly and very helpful. Building renovations going on so expect some noise as they continue to upgrade. Elevators are very quick.

Great Location, Value and Comfort

I had been wary of staying here for a long time because I believed it was an old dame who had seen better days and was worn at the seams. NOT TRUE! The hotel has been nicely updated, rooms are comfortable, great on sight restaurants (including McCormack and Schmick) and the location is superb. Added to that, they often have rooms available for less that $120. There's no place else that comes close to matching that value and additionally the rooms are also comfortable. This is no budget hotel, it's a full on 4 star hotel that I will from now on call my home away from home while in Boston.

If it was half the price, it would be worth it

To start at the beginning, the lobby is beautiful. And completely misleading. If you expect the rooms to be as posh and new as the lobby, you will be greatly disappointed (as I was). The rooms are tiny. But it isn't just that; they are poorly designed. The TV is next to the bed making it awkward to watch, the bathroom has the light switch out side of the room, just little things like that. Everything was old, including the mismatched tiles and the radiator heat. There isn't free wi-fi, which for the price I was paying, is absurd. But by far the worst part was the noise! I could hear all of Boston just outside my window (which also let in all the cold air). I didn't sleep well at all. But hey, at least it was in a good location

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Take a Duck Tour! It was a ton of fun and I got to see a lot of the city. It was much better than walking all over the place. I learned a lot too and the guide was funny.

Awesome location

Everything about the hotel was great, save the fact that there was no complementary wifi in the rooms. However, the room was great and so was the location and staff.

Fraud

Room 9011 is not a room that should be given to anyone who pays the amount I payed. I payed for a standard queen room, and when I arrived, the room was noisy (elevators heard through the wall), the bed was a FULL not a QUEEN and the shower was only two feet wide and five feet long (!!), when it was advertised as having a bathtub. This was not a hotel room, it was a closet. Luckily I was able to change rooms the next day, thanks to the guest services staff - but I was still very displeased and frankly cheated my first night at the Boston Park Plaza. 2/10 - would not recommend. That said, the guest service staff were great and accommodating, and the maintenance and housekeeping staff were superb. Perhaps, I just got unlucky. Please consider your customers next time you put them in room 9011, and by that I mean, refrain from giving anyone that room.
