Why We Love It

  • A $100 million top-to-toe renovation and restoration of a 1920s landmark
  • About a five-minute walk from Boston Common and Newbury Street shopping
  • Modern rooms have smart TVs and sleek, subway-tiled bathrooms, though space is sometimes tight
  • An upscale fitness centre covers 20,000 square feet of the ground floor with cycling, yoga studios and dozens of machines

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Approaching a century of hosting guests like Katharine Hepburn and Franklin D. Roosevelt, the Boston Park Plaza used $100 million to refurbish and renovate every square inch of itself in 2016. The result is modern and refined in monochromatic silver. There's a double-height lobby lounge and library, a 24-hour FedEx Office business centre and an upscale fitness centre, which offers oodles of classes and thousands of square feet of fitness equipment in a clubby, moody space.

It's a pretty prime spot for sightseeing. Guests can stroll about five minutes to the southern edge of Boston Common or head five minutes in the other direction to reach Newbury Street with its big-brand stores or the performing arts centre. It's a good sign when your neighbour is the Four Seasons, and even better when you're paying a fraction of that price.

It's a historic building, meaning some rooms can have quirky layouts and compact proportions, but the finishes are all high-end, including smart TVs that connect to phones for streaming, new custom-made mattresses and clean-lined bathrooms of porcelain and granite.

The "cozy queen" was so small I have had cruise ship rooms that were larger. There were bugs walking around the tiny shower. The room was noisy and when I opened the shade a window washer said "hello".

there was almost no reception on our cellular phone and the hotel didn't have a business center. They use FEDEX and the computers at the FedEx store were out of service. The rooms were so small there was not room to unpack at all. We had to layout our clothing on top of the window sill.
