Why We Love This Hotel

  • An impressive past guest list includes former U.S. Presidents and celebs like Katherine Hepburn and Judy Garland
  • It's only five minutes walking to Boston Common as well as boutique shopping on Newbury Street; Fenway Park is just three T-stops away
  • There's a 20,000-square-foot fitness center on site, where guest can sign up for group and personal training sessions

"Excellent experience due to a well trained staff. A little to costly on o. The bar, lunch, and dinner side of things. The room price was good for the quality and location of the hotel."

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.

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.

This was my 10th stay at this hotel. I enjoy it every time. Excellent service always. The location is also superb.

Hotel was nice, location better. We have stayed here over the years. Our room was a smaller deluxe. Since we are a older couple we thought it was strange that the bathroom tub/shower did not have a safety bar and only one light on the side of the bed and only one bed table.

Everybody was super friendly. The maids all said hello as we passed them in the hall. The older gentlemen who helped me with my bags to my room was kind and professional even though I ran out of tip money. I said I’d bring more down when my husband got there and he seemed touched and thanked me but said it was ok and not to worry. He handled it graciously. I wish I’d caught his name. The travelzoo deal is why we stayed there. It was great!

The hotel is grand and historical; staff very pleasant. Parking across the street is $40 overnight, small rooms and could hear noises from outside, hallway, above and beside us, they offer water at check in, why not just put a few bottles in the room. Comfortable beds and they have 12:30 check out.
