Overview

In 2016, Boston Park Plaza used $100 million to refurbish and renovate every square inch of itself. The result -- a modern and refined landmark in one of the country’s oldest cities. Built in 1927, the property has hosted a lot of prominent guests from many U.S. Presidents to Katherine Hepburn and Judy Garland. 

Rooms vary in size but are on the smaller side. Decorated in charcoal and caramel tones, all rooms feature Keurig coffee makers, bed-side USB charging ports, free Wi-Fi and 100% black-out shades. Most rooms are dog-friendly (call the hotel for more details) and free of charge (one-time cleaning fee applies). 

Room service is also available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are three restaurants on-site: Off the Common, STRIP by Strega and M.J. O’Connor’s. Start your morning off with Starbucks, located just off the lobby and open as early as 5:30 a.m., seven days a week. 

Guests can enjoy access to an upscale fitness center, which offers 20,000 square feet of space with the latest cardio and strength training equipment. The gym also features Boston’s first Topgolf Swing Suite for year-round practice and PGA-certified instruction. 

This 4-star property is located in a 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. The Arlington T-stop is a one-minute walk from the hotel and easy to explore other parts of the city such as Cambridge.

We were there for New Years Eve and was dreading the expected fight to get onto the elevators with a hundred drunken Millennials, but to our surprise the hotel had security create a line to the elevators and would only allow the number of guests that would fit into an elevator into the area at one time. This prevented the expected pushing, elbowing and overloading of the elevators. Excellent job !

This hotel is easy to get to from the freeway. There is also a parking garage nearby in case you prefer not to take advantage of the valet parking. Check in was smooth and our room was excellent for the value.

Not a problem for us as we did not spend a lot of time in the room but it was very small. That might be a concern for some. Great TV!
