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 an upscale fitness center, 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 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.

I realised that the price was fairly the same, but that more options were offered, should I have booked directly with the hôtel.Plus, they gave gifts if doing so. They wouldn't upgrade us since we had booked with them.

Other Comments
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.

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".
