"This was supposed to be a “king superior” room. Room was very small and older. Hotel has old style charm, but if you are looking for a modern room, this may not be for you. Safe in the room wasn’t working. Maintenance came right up to fix. No space in the bathroom."

Overview

The Boston Park Plaza is undeniably grand in more ways than one: With 1,060 rooms, it's one of the largest hotels in Beantown. It was also built in 1927 and still boasts a soaring art deco-style lobby with gilded ceilings and a dramatic black and white color palette. Add to that its prime real estate between Back Bay and Boston Common, and it's easy to understand why the Park Plaza has been a favorite of the city's who's-who for nearly a century — you might even spot Mark Wahlberg in the steakhouse just off the lobby.

Guest rooms weave the hotel's historic accents — think original crown molding — with modern amenities like Google ChromeCast, plush upholstered headboards, black-out shades and "massive closets" (The Telegraph). For extra space, we recommend upgrading to a Deluxe or Superior room — they start at 280 square feet. Suites come with separate living and bedroom areas.

On-site dining ranges from pub food at M.J. O'Connor's Irish bar to an impressive selection of steaks, seafood and oysters on the half-shell at STRIP by Strega Steakhouse. There's also a Starbucks in the lobby, which opens at 5:30 a.m. daily — especially handy if you need to fuel up before an early flight.

This was supposed to be a “king superior” room. Room was very small and older. Hotel has old style charm, but if you are looking for a modern room, this may not be for you. Safe in the room wasn’t working. Maintenance came right up to fix. No space in the bathroom.

Location was great; staff was friendly
Other Comments
The room while large was a little dated and had no option to store clothes such as a dresser or drawers. They charge 22 a day for a facility fee of internet and so forth but for example to watch Netflix you needed to stream from your own account and phone.
