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 centre and an upscale fitness centre, which offers 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 and 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 renovation was nice - the rooms were comfortable enough.

The staff was just ok. Front desk was ok, but housekeeping was not very helpful when we have a toilet overflow. Had to call twice for service and when I did, they basically asked if they should take away the wet towels. There was no cleaning up involved. It was midnight and I was exhausted so I didn't press it further.
