Boston getaway

The location is excellent, next to the Transit station. Making it very easy to get around Boston and to see the Historic sites all over the city!

Great Stay

Our stay was great. We needed an extra cot and a corkscrew and the concierge was more than happy to provide it. The location was great, easy to get around the city.

Nice, not Splendid. Excellent Customer S

The staff at the hotel was definitely the best part of the hotel. They were more than helpfull with suggestions and directions and even arranged for a car one morning for me during a recent Nor'Easter storm when all of the taxi's were off the road. The site is conveniently located next to the "T". The hotel property is nice, nothing spectacular.

The "T" subway system is 50 steps from the front door. Big money and time saver.

Hidden Gem

Spacious, clean and affordable - close to all transit hubs. Walkable to super-cool South End, South Station, Downtown. and tons of taxis for those places in between. Love that there is a Starbucks downstairs as well as a cafe and Bar. and the integrated YMCA makes it great for those who require gym access. only downer is paying for the wireless.. but the rate is not that bad.

Good locale, no amenities

PROS: + Good location- subway right outside, walk to major attractions CONS: -Room did not have any windows- only window faced an indoor electrical system -Parking not included-ended up being $40 a night -Continental breakfast not included - ended up being $14.99 for cereals/coffee (flat fee) -WiFi not included ($12 extra) ** Most of these non-included items were misleading. It seemed to be the hotel's way of getting $ for hidden fees

Blizzard 2010

Arrived at Doubletree Hotel just as the snow was starting to fall. Hotel staff was very accommodating. Walked through the snow for two blocks to the Blue Man Group performance. Eighteen inches of the white stuff later and the hotel was still operating normally.

Quiet rooms in great location!

I attended a conference at the Haynes Conference Center and could avoid the big hotels around that location through booking at the Doubletree. I took the orange subway and could exit right next to the hotel, which was clean, quiet, with very friendly staff.
