Not As Exclusive As Implied

I stayed in what the hotel calls its "Exclusive Towers Level Concierge Floor located on the 15th floor". Only in name. I assumed that there was limited access to that floor (key card slot in elevator-not working). There are special benefits, like a free breakfast, but other guests were freely coming up from other floors and walking off with food and coffee. There was noise late into the evening in the hallways from drunk guests returning to their rooms and stopping outside my door to have discussions. Occassionally, the occupants of the room adjacent were loud until 11 - 11:30 PM. I also suspect there was smoking going on in one of the nearby rooms, because I kept smelling weak cigarette smoke during my stay. On the housekeeping side, I kept getting woken up by housekeeping at around 9 AM, because my room did not have a sign for the door. Little things. Overall a great time, but not what was expected.

There are a surprising number of outstanding restaurants within walking distance (a short step in some cases). Seafood, Steaks, Italian, Desserts, Chinese, and Fondue to name a few.

Great location, attentive staff

The hotel is in a great location, just 15 minutes from the airport. The staff was very helpful, from the valet who greeted us and recommended perfect street parking to the lady at the front desk who provided free wifi access in our room when it didn't work in the lobby.

Tiny room

There was practically no empty floor space. Electrical wires snaked across one corner just begging to be tripped over. Desk and night stand were crowded with TV, telephone, radio, coffee maker, etc., so there was very little work space. I had to lean over the TV to operate the thermostat, but that was a waste of time because it seemed to have no effect on the room temperature anyway. The bathroom was the worst. Sitting on the toilet I had the toilet paper holder almost poking me in the side, and the opposite wall was right in my face. The shower stall was so narrow I couldn't turn around without brushing up against the shower curtain. In addition, there was the incessant, never-ending hum of machinery, which seemed to come from inside the building.

Not worthy

Besides magnificent lobby & great location, highly overpriced. Expect to pay $46/day for valet parking. Room needs complete renovation. Just because it has a big flat screen TV, it does not cover the chipped paint , dirt, etc. Dissapointed :(

Perfect location for a fun weekend

So I booked a deluxe room at the Park Plaza which was a good deal compared to other travel sites. The room was fine with a king bed, nice bathroom with plenty of water pressure, and the usual amenities. The location makes the hotel, with Boston Common, Newbury Street, and great restaurants and bars in walking distance. Check-in and out were convenient as was the valet.

It is in the most convenient location and is absolutely gorgeous inside and out. I will stay here time and time again. The double bed room I had even had two bedrooms, great for two females!
