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.

Perfect

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!

Great location in a great city!

A bit overpriced and the room is smaller than I'm accustomed to, but still a decent hotel given its location. Very close to the train station, and within walking distance to several tourist attractions. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Close to Arlington Station

Ideal location in the Back Bay. 1 block from the green line Arlington Station. 1 subway stop from Copley station - where you can hop on the Logan Shuttle for $5 or free if you get a Charlie card. Hotel also ALWAYS has plenty of taxi cabs lining up. Staff is very helpful and friendly. There are lots of good restaurants in the hotel. There is a Hertz rent-a-car next door. Lots of space for conferences. Elegant ballroom. The hotel is historic and well, "old" - but don't let that deter you.

REally Great!!

Really fancy hotel!!! Loved the luxuriousness!! Only negative is that it was a little noisy from the cleaning crew in the morning and there was some type of fire drill or something that morning too.

Family getaway

The Boston Park Plaza was a nice hotel. It was in the middle of everything. Walking distance from shops and restaurants. Couldn't ask for a better location for the price. It was Halloween and everyone was dressed up. The down side was that the hallways were very noisy.
