great location

This hotel is located in a great location. It is within walking distance to many attractions. I really enjoyed having a railway stop 1 block away from the hotel. The hotel itself was very clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone visiting the boston area.

Great location for activities in Boston

The room was clean and the staff pleasant. We stayed on New Year's Eve and had several free concerts and fireworks to celebrate the holiday. I would recommend this hotel.

Park Plaza Hotel, Boston

Fantastic location, nice hotel and as we went through an internet booking company we got an amazing deal for $100 a night in a very centralized hotel in Boston two days after Christmas. The room was comfortable with everything one would expect to find in a good hotel such as the Park Plaza. Overall a very pleasant experience, and would go again.

Both the Italian and Chinese quarters are very close to the hotel. The Chinese district is about a 10 minute walk way while the Italian is about 15 minutes. Both have excellent restaurants for a night out on the town.

Terrible Twice!

I had stayed here once before and the first time was not terrible, but it definitely was not great. Room was a little dingy, no view but there were two full bathrooms which is very nice! It was summer the first time I stayed at this hotel, this past time was in December 2011. I do not remember being uncomfortable during my first visit but this last time was unbearable. We arrived in the room and it was really warm in the room so we figured we would turn the heat down as low as it could go while we left for dinner expecting it to be a comfortable temperature when we got back. When we returned it was still blaring hot so we turned the heat off. May I mention it was probably a high of 30 degrees outside. The windows only opened about a foot and we were on the inside of the building so we got no breeze. I contacted someone about it because after trying to tolerate it none of us could sleep due to the heat. They said they knew and there was nothing they could do about it. So I paid for a room that was nothing special and was so EXTREMELY uncomfortable that neither of us could sleep. Sorry I gave you two tries and I will not be returning to your hotel. The only nice part is the location but it is not worth it.

Really not impressed

Bought a queen room for two nights, they say they are out and want to upgrade me to a king for free. Well of course right? Well dont let them cause they will give you a handicapped room on a floor that seems to.be reserved for their lowerclass customers. Cable tv consisted of 8 news channels, and a horrible movie channel playing movies that couldnt even make it to a redbox. And nothing was complimentary. No breakfast, the tea thing they advertise never happened, and overall not what I was expecting for the price. Would have been better off at a holiday inn. The loby and the location are the only good points this place got.
