Christmas Time in Boston

The holiday decorations in the hotel were especially festive. We enjoy the proximity to the theatre district, The T and restaurants. The Park Plaza has been and will continue to be our hotel of choice when visiting Boston.

Nice hotel

I am very impressed with park plaza staff. Room rate was average with above average facilities. Centrally located, very convenient. I did not like their internet facility, as you will have to pay in order to access it, the free internet is available only in main floor lobby. I booked using cheap ticket discount coupon and got a very nice deal.

Dissapointing

I don't think I'd ever stay there again. Very old and run down. Room was suppose to come with a breakfast. It did but it was pretty disappointing.

Great Weekend Hotel Stay

My only problem with the Park Plaza was that our room was tiny. There was barely any space to move outside of the bed, but it was fine for us, as we were only there for the weekend (we had the Plaza Petite room). Other than that, it was beautiful, clean, and the staff was so friendly.

The hotel restaurant is overpriced, but there was so much within walking distance, that we didn't have to eat there.

Weekend in Boston

Hotel is very well located. This is 'old style". Building is pre war so you never hear anyone once you are comfortably situated in your room. The walls are very thick. Service could not have been better. Room a lovely size and very clean. Only thing missing was free wifi in the room. When I return to Boston I will definitely stay here.

Great for business stays

Convenient location, close to metro, shops, and dining, yet quiet. All the minimum basics of a hotel room are met. Will likely to stay again when in Boston downtown area.
