Had to go for Business

All of Boston hotels were booked and I decided to try Holiday Inn out. It was expected and my reason for the negative review was the cost. For the price, the value seems missed.

Bad experience but nice staff

The hotel was being refurbished and there was too much noise and smell of paint, It is close to the basketball stadium, the parking is far and cold night it is very bad because the valet parking is until midnight. The staff is excellent and very friendly.

Quick business trip

Right across the st from train station. Short train ride to town. Comfortable rooms. Good breakfast & friendly staff. A bit pricey but average for Boston area I guess

Impromptu visit to North End

Stopped overnight to have dinner on way to Connecticut. Hotel easy location from the. North, Valet parking a bit steep at $39,00 but convenient where there weren't options near TD Garden on a game night. Overall an ok no frills experience.

Extreme disappointment

I have not had a worse experience at a hotel. Check in was at 3:00 pm. Upon arrival at 3:45 pm I was in line to check in and overheard the customer in front of me being told their room was ready, a family with children. I proceeded to check in and was also told my room wasn't ready. The employees behind the desk did not have the capacity to answer my question of why they could not meet the customers check in expectations. Not only did they fail to provide me with a clear answer, my girlfriend and I were spoken too very rudely. I asked for the manager. After waiting for 20 minutes, she finally came to speak with me. She expressed that she understood why I was disappointed. However, she also failed to explain to me why rooms were not ready, now more than an hour after check in was supposed to be. After a significant amount of time waiting, they finally had a room ready. Unfortunately for us, it caused us to be very late to a scheduled event. I have never had such a bad experience with a hotel in my life and I would not recommend anyone to stay there.

Boston trip 2014

We got to the hotel straight from the airport on Sat. afternoon a few hours before check-in. This wonderful girl I wish I would've gotten her name had our room ready within minutes. Lizbeth from housekeeping came everyday to clean and change towels. The hotel sits across from the TD Gardens and right next to several bars. So after a Bruins or Celtics game expect a loud party late into the night. This wasn't a problem for my husband and I. The hotel is also very close to the North Station where you can take the train anywhere you need to go. We went to Fenway for a game and the Boylston Fire Station. We walked to the Science museum for the Duck tours then went back the next day for the omni. This hotel will be where we will be staying from now on. Oh an in the mornings expect to be awakened by seagulls instead of roosters like we do back home! Ha Thank you Holiday Inn Express
