Its a good standard business hotel

The hotel is conveniently located in downtown Boston. They also provide items such as toothbruch, shaver and etc, if you forget. Most staff were friendly, except one I met.

Good location and friendly staff

This hotel was clean, comfortable and well situated for touring Boston. The staff at this hotel--as at other Doubletree hotels where I have stayed--is very intent upon doing a good job and is very accommodating. Even when there were minor glitches (a phone not working) they rectified the problem quickly and gave a little bonus (a Starbucks coupon) as an apology. They also called to see how the stay was going and if there was anything they could do to make it more enjoyable. The breakfast buffet is very overpriced and the nearby restaurant options appeared limited (McDonald's, Dunkin Donuts). But otherwise the stay was great!

short stay

No refrigerator in room. Some noise from streets, but not too bad. Overall, a great experience. The bed was comfy and the room was clean. The warm chocolate chip cookie at check in was a nice touch. Good location.

Good Hotel & Close to Fenway

We needed to book a hotel close to Fenway Park for the Red Sox's game. This hotel was the perfect choice for pricing and distance (a quick trip on the T). Especially considering that I booked this the day before our trip, it was an excellent choice for the ball park and a night out on the town. The staff was courteous. The only thing that was annoying was one of the valet guys yelling at me for my keys- you just don't want to deal with that after driving for 5 ours. Other than that, I would recommend this hotel to anyone that need to be near the theater district and only a short train ride away to Fenway Park.

good location, value

Staff was friendly and helpful, no problem getting toothbrushes when we forgot ours. Complimentary cookies at check in were nice. Parking is either valet or you can park in a garage on Tremont street behind the hotel.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Short walk for a few bars, but Jacob Wirth Co. is a good spot for German beers with a wide variety to choose from.

Great location

The main reason, for me choosing that hotel, was the location. I only stayed there for a few hours and wanted to explore the city on foot. It was a nice and clean hotel and most of the staff was very helpful. It would have been nice to have a free internet. I payed 25$ + tips for the taxi to the Logan Airport.

Double Tree worth the value.

We were greeted right when we arrived by the Valet who was very nice. The bellhop was very professional. The front desk got us our room ahead of normal check in hour. Fresh cookies when we checked in. room was very nice. The free buffet breakfast was very comforting. We would definitely stay here again.
