Perfect location

This is an old hotel but it is in a great location and is very clean. The price was also great and you feel like you are in a real hotel and not a cookie cutter business hotel.

Pay for Internet Access

This is a pricey hotel, and yet you have to pay $12.50 a day for internet access! The continental breakfast is $18.00, and a hot one will set you back $25.00. So come prepared to eat at the Panera down the street. While there, access the internet free of charge. That said, the staff was very helpful and friendly, except the doorman who directed me to the valet parking ($48 a day). He seemed to look down on my humble Forester. Granted, it was covered with country dirt and the license plate gave me away as a yokel, but still.... Although the location is great, I would not stay here again. Too many extra charges.

Business Trip

The staff was very friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, and the hotel had great amenities. My only con would be that the room was small for the price.

Great Hotel and Great Location

Great hotel and great location, staff is very friendly. Only stayed a couple of nights and not used all amenities but my only complain is that the rooms are very old and have not been renovated, especially the bathroom. Water pressure is not very good and the bathroom very small. Other than that, a great place to stay and at a ver good price for Boston.

Not my expectations for a "Park Plaza Hotel"

Beautiful location, very impressed with everything about the expectations for the "Park Plaza" name how ever... Very dis satisfied with the cleanliness of the room such as while enjoying the bath after a long tiring day, the pedestal sink had noticeably dry brown something and the bathroom air vents had visible dust which hadn't been cleaned in months. The transitioning from door locks to key cards were visible once you closed the door as well as the wall paper seams coming undone... Just a few unacceptable items

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Either short or long walks, Boston Commons and the surrounding Cathedral Churches, Architecture, Landscapes are an enjoying view.

Used to be a nice hotel

Everything seems run down. Updated bathroom is just a facelift still bad plumbing. Water in shower wasn't hot, and was rusty. Everything was needing touchup.

Relaxing quick family trip

We were there just one night Good Friday just before the marathon so the Hotel was very busy. They were helpful at the desk and the room was quiet and spacious. It's such a great location that even with a 9 year old and a 16 year old we all stayed happy.

Avoid

Lousy hotel, ranks at par w/ Holiday Inn/Eko in Lagos, Nigeria in the 1980s. very small room, bath in particular in great need of refurbishing. In terms of $$$/quality, one of the worst I've stayed in during 40 years of travel. Maybe the one who gave it four stars either (I# got some special room; or #ii# mixed up this hotel w/ e.g. Mandarin #excellent); or ......

Good location near the commons

Very near the Commons, Arlington T stop and good restaurants, the hotel is large but efficient at check in and check out. Room was very clean. It does charge for in room internet and TV was a bit awkwardly located for easy viewing unless you are in bed. Also hotel currently undergoing facade work that means workers are outside various walls so you are advised to appropriately safeguard your privacy.
