very nice hotel for a small rate

The hotel is conveniently located close to South Station and right by a subway stop. In addition to the hotel restaurant, many other restaurants are also available in walking distance. Our room (2 double beds) was spacious, very clean and warm. The people at the reception were very nice and helpful in providing directions and tips about Boston. Note that internet is not included.

The staff was friendly and very helpful..

Doubletree' Hotel Boston-Downtown, BOSTON, MA Room was very nice, clean and newly renovated. Ample size with desk. Conveniently located in the business district. There are two business centers in the hotel with free internet. The rooms have internet for a fee. The staff was the standout. They were very friendly and very helpful. I will stay there again when in Boston.

Perfect for a business trip

The hotel was very well located, in Boston Downtown. Very close to Boston Commons and other amenities. The room was very big and clean! The bed was amazing! Only thing that didn't like was Internet since it is not free in the rooms. Besides that, amazing hotel!

good stuff

Convenient location right next to the orange line and a block from the green line. Great staff, and conveniently connect to the YMCA. Just wish the room was a little bigger.

Boston for a conference

The staff was extremely helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. The Hynes Convention Center was not as close as advertised (I thought we could walk, but not easily or quickly) and a cab cost between 9 and 11 dollars each way. The T was very convenient to this property and we utilized it often during our stay. Overall A.

Pretty Good Place

Parking a little expensive, but the room was comfortable. Food was good, but they don't tell you there is an 18% gratuity added to roomservice unless you read the booklet first.
