Great location and value

I was in Boston for a few nights recently. The Park Plaza is very centrally located, very close to the Boston Commons and Arlington subway station, and just 10 minutes' walk from Chinatown, South Station and Copley Place. As a solo traveler, I stayed in a single queen-bed room. It was very comfortable and well-furnished, and a decent size considering the circumstances. HD channels on the TV, quality toiletries, numerous pillows, and free wi-fi in the lobby. Had two occasions to talk to the concierge, and both times the man/lady was friendly and helpful. For the location, it was the most economical luxury hotel in the area, and I wasn't disappointed. Will definitely stay again.

boston overnight

We often stay at Park Plaza, primarily because of its location and because it is a great value for downtown Boston. It was easy walking distance to 2 subway lines and also walking distance to the theater district. We saw a spectacular performance of INTO THE WOODS at the Lyric Stage.

This hotel has a really good location, everything is near. The only downside is that the hotel does not provide free wifi in rooms, only in the lobby.

One big problem….

We arrived very late at night & were sent to a room so small we couldn't walk past each other! And it only had a double bed (we had queen on our reservation) & one bedside table. We had to complain VERY LOUDLY but did get upgraded and from there on out we had a wonderful experience. It is the BEST location to be in Boston, for sure!

Perfect spot in Boston

We would stay at the Park Plaza every time we go to Boston. It's in a great location: we walked to the North End, Chinatown and Fenway easily. The room was great. Yes, it's a bit old-fashioned, but it has all of the amenities and everything was very comfortable. For the price, there isn't a better place in the city!

Pleasant stay

The Boston Park Plaza is an ideal location, close to the T and just blocks from some lovely neighborhood shops as well as Boston Common. The hotel is clean, has a kind staff and they are efficient in their work. We were well taken care of by everyone we encountered. The room was clean, and service was prompt.The beds were comfortable and the big, cushy pillows were a plus for me! We had a great view, which was a bonus. I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially if you're exploring with no car. I don't think you really need one! The T is an efficient system of mass transit and this hotel is ideal for public access.
