Why We Love It

  • A $100 million top-to-bottom 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
  • The clubby David Barton Gym covers 20,000 square feet of the ground floor with cycling and 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 silvery monochromatics. There's a double-height lobby lounge and library, a 24-hour FedEx Office business center and a full-size outpost of David Barton Gym, 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 and its big-brand stores or the performing arts center. It's a good sign when your neighbor 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.

Other Comments: TZoo needs to be a lot more transparent about "fully loaded" room prices AT THE TIME OF BOOKING - NOT JUST IN THE CONFIRMATION. I booked at 139.00 but with all taxes and fees it came to 227.25 per night.

Enjoyed Most: We booked a suite. The room was fairly large and had a tremendous view of the city.
Other Comments: We stayed on New Year's Eve. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. My only "complaint" is that check-in took 25 minutes. Given the length of the line, they were moving as quickly as possible and they did feed us free pizza while we waited!
