Great location and value

I was in Boston for a few nights recently. The Park Plaza is very centrally located, very close to the Boston Commons and Arlington subway station, and just 10 minutes' walk from Chinatown, South Station and Copley Place. As a solo traveler, I stayed in a single queen-bed room. It was very comfortable and well-furnished, and a decent size considering the circumstances. HD channels on the TV, quality toiletries, numerous pillows, and free wi-fi in the lobby. Had two occasions to talk to the concierge, and both times the man/lady was friendly and helpful. For the location, it was the most economical luxury hotel in the area, and I wasn't disappointed. Will definitely stay again.

Quick night stay

The Park Plaza hotel is beautiful. The check in process went quickly. We had a room at the end of the hall with a nice view of the buildings up the street. All of the electronics and fixtures worked fine. The bed was very comfortable. Everything appeared to be clean. It was quiet too. We stayed only one night but would have stayed at this hotel longer if we had more time. Very nice experience!

Close to Boston Gardens and Common. Very close to Arlington T stop. Easy to walk almost anywhere in Boston from here. Can take the T to a Red Sox game..only a few stops away.

Anniversary nite out

Could not get thru on the phone with reservations to let them know I would be a late check in. Was not informed when I pulled up to valet parking about the $48 fee. Room was less than spectacular

Not what I expected

Was at this hotel 3 yrs ago & it was beautiful with huge mirrors & chandeliers in lobby as it has been for many years giving it that grand look when you walk in. This past week it now looks drab as they are remodeling it trying to give it a modern look. They covered up the mirrors replaced the chanaliers with some ugly light fixtures. Not to mention the room we got had old rickety furniture covering chips and scratches with a bad job of furniture marker and the bathroom had old ugly tile on floor yuck & rust in corners. Never come back again

great pet friendly hotel

We stayed at this hotel with our dog for one night and it was the perfect spot to get around Boston. There was also grassy areas for our dog close by which was really convenient.

Good Location, OK service

Pros: Good location, rooms are small but nice Cons: Thin walls (loud neighbors can be a problem), housekeeping less than stellar, might not have in-room locker (see Note below) If you're planning just a short stay in Boston, won't be in the hotel much, and can sleep through some noise from your neighbors, then this hotel is fine. We had a loud, boisterous group of people next door keeping us up one night because the walls didn't muffle it out much, but luckily they stopped around 1AM. But if that bothers you, seek a place with thicker walls or pray the rooms next to you are empty. Housekeeping was a bit below par. Sugar & other debris from making coffee was still left on the desk even after they "cleaned". Iron & iron board were left as is instead of returned to closet #though that could be a style thing, some hotels do some don't#. Supplies were replenished properly though, so I don't mean to say they were terrible...just not very thorough. NOTE ON IN-ROOM LOCKERS: During our stay #July 4th weekend 2014# we had no in-room locker despite it being advertised that their rooms have them. Was told it's because they're in the process of repairing/replacing them, and not every single room has one currently. They offered use of their safety deposit boxes near the concierge instead, which was fine but inconvenient as you need someone to let you in and sign things out every time.

The Au Bon Pain around the corner is very helpful to pick up a quick coffee & breakfast or some sandwich wraps to pack for later in the day. The Parish Café nearby is excellent for lunch. Maggiano's across the street is OK but nothing special, though the service is very friendly there.
