Needs that special something indeed

The hotel was average in quality and a short walk from downtown attractions. The only parking option was through valet, which was expensive. So it was ok, but we'll probably stay somewhere else next time.

We came down from NH to see a show at Boston Opera House and it worked out perfectly to stay here for the night. Staff was exceptionally friendly, it set the tone for a really nice getaway.

Staff was very helpful with directions and suggestions. Good location. Small room and $12.99 a day for internet is a rip-off. More good than bad.

Perfect location

Helpful and friendly staff. Situation right next to the Tufts Medical Center train station (orange line), easy access to other parts of the city. Short walk to South Station and on the edge of Chinatown.

Boston friendly

Very helpful staff. Expensive but a good value for Boston. Parking was $43 a night which I didn't know till we got there. Location was good because it was right by the orange line train station but bad because its by Tufts medical center & there were ambulances throughout the night going past. Also, the pool was in the adjacent YMCA which wasn't convenient.

Bring sandwich baggies with you - they can be used for snacks, toothbrushes, money,toiletries, medicine or leftovers and are especially helpful with kids.

Not a good experience

I wouldn't stay here in the future. I'm 7 1/2 months pregnant and they would not allow me to check in any earlier than 3 PM despite traveling since 4:45 AM in the morning. They promised to call if a room became available but never called in the 6 hours we waited before 3 PM. We could not find a restaurant they suggested which was only a few blocks from the hotel. The rooms have no control for the AC/heat. My husband and I both came back with skin rashes from the bed sheets. The rooms were not nicely decorated. Overall, poor experience and surprised this is a double tree/Hilton.

Great Way to explore Boston

We've stayed here before and this time was just as great as we remembered! The hotel is easy to get to from the highway, there is a T stop right outside the doors, and during nice weather it is easily in walking distance to many of the Boston activities and sights most visitors want to explore. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the bar downstairs is a great place to relax either before heading out for dinner or after you've returned from a long day exploring.

You don't have to pay to park in the hotel's lot. You can get information on their website for two parking garages associated with Tufts Medical Center that cost about $10 less/day that are right next door!
