Disappointing

This hotel is a complicated maze of hallways - a certain deathtrap in an emergency. Beware of hidden charges: despite the online reviews, breakfast and parking are not included. When you add in the $43 for parking and $15 per head for breakfast, you can stay in a better hotel for the same price. The staff will be unable to see the details of your online reservation and will not be able to address any concerns that you have - the product that they are prepared to deliver may not line up with what you expected to receive.

Downtown Bostn

Great hotel for the money. Close to the T and downtown venues. Breakfast is wicked expensive and it's best to dine out. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Friday and Saturday nights were very loud when the clubs close at 2 AM. But we would stay there again.

Family Wedding

One's stay at a hotel is the most import factor in making a trip the best ever. Double Tree Downtown was that and more. It was walking distance to almost all our needs including church, with the subway right outside the door as backup. The rooms were big and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

Fantastic location gateway to Boston!

Steps away from the Orange Subway line and only 40 mins from the Airport by the Silver Line. It was a gateway to the main areas of Boston and the price to travel by transit was unbeatable. Perfect for any vacation. The bed was extremely comfortable and all the in room amenities from the iron to the tv to the soap were of high standard. The staff were extremely helpful and gave great tips on where to go and what to see.

Great Hotel for the price!

I was very pleased with this hotel. It was easy to check in and they gave us great cookies when checking in! They were very helpful when I forgot my toothbrush. They also gave us more cookies when we asked on the evening of the second day!

Nothing Great Here

The hotel is pretty basic. It is right next to a train line which was cool but besides that its in a pretty basic area. I'll prob stay somewhere else next time I visit Boston.

Very convenient to the hospital

We chose this hotel because it was very close to Tuft's University. If anyone is doing business with the hospital this is the best location to stay. The only down side with this hotel is there is no complimentary breakfast in the morning and no free wi-fi in the room. No indoor pool in the hotel. Starbuck's is in the lobby!!!!

Great Location to everywhere

The hotel location was right in the middle of all conveniences. The bus and train were a step away from the hotel. There was no free internet connection in the room, but they had a business center where 4 computers were available for guest use and it was very convenient. No free continental breakfast was offered. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and there was a small coffee machine and refrigerator in the room. No safe in the room. Overall,I would go back to this hotel and I would recommend it highly. Oh, there's a Starbuck's coffee shop in the lobby for you Starbuck lover, but it's not open past 5:30p on weekdays:(
