gave away my room

Never got to stay because they gave away my room, got me another room at a nearby hotel. Instead of a top floor large king I was promised I got a mid level two bed. Not as romantic as I was hoping for. Be careful if you rent a room from here, make sure they hold your reservation

Nice Stay

Overall our stay at the Boston Park Plaza was good. It is a great location situated close to Boston's best attractions. The room was a little dated and cramped but it was clean and comfortable for the 1 night we stayed. I was unaware of the hotels very pricey $48.00 overnight parking fee. Not a pleasant surprise!

There is a parking lot about 50 yards from the hotel entrance where you can park overnight for $31.00 and can save you some money.

Excellent Experience

The location is perfect. The entire staff that I met was always friendly, smiling and helpful. The Hotel has a wonderful large restaurant with good food and there is a bar and rumor of a night club that I did not see. Truly all your needs are met here, it's a great home base for a Boston experience.

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.
