Boston Marathon

Booked the Park Plaza at the last minute and we were not disappointed. We arrived early, expecting our room would not be ready were pleasantly surprised when the desk clerk handed over the key-cards. Used the Concierge to help us book a tour of Boston which we throughly enjoyed. #BostonStrong

Great deal for an overnight trip; easy access to Fenway

We didn't spend much time in the hotel, but the time we did was excellent. The check-in was efficient and the breakfast service was great. The bell hops also conveniently watched our bags when we were leaving since we only wanted to step out for a few minutes - as opposed to going through the formal process where they spend 10 minutes ticketing your bag even though you'll only be gone for 5. I had booked the deal online and given we didn't plan to spend much time in the hotel, I was more than happy to reserve a junior room with a full size bed and shower at the reduced rate of only $79 (which is unheard of for a 2-star hotel in downtown Boston, let alone a hotel of this caliber.) To our surprise, we checked into a gorgeous room with a king-sized bed with a full bath. The extra room was unexpected, but more than appreciated!! We were in town to see an event at Fenway Park and although we are both very familiar with the city of Boston, it would have been too cold to walk the ~1.5 miles. Luckily, the hotel is steps away from the Arlington T stop on the green line, which significantly reduces the need to take unnecessary cabs. Kenmore is a few stops away so we were at Fenway in 10 min. My only complaint would be that wireless internet cost $13 for the night, which seemed a little steep considering I travel often for work.

wonderful hotel/location

We enjoyed this hotel immensely. For some reason, they upgraded us to the towers where all the food was free! The room was large and elegant. It was a very lovely time. Damien the concierge was exceptionally helpful and very patient with all my questions. He booked us a reservation at the Sea Grille, again, very elegant and delicious. It was a great stay.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The subways are simple to navigate, making Boston easy to access. Go to the brand new Boston Tea Party Museum. It was amazing. Brilliant and fun for kids as well as adults. Go to the mall (especially at night) across from the Marriott Long Wharf...........wonderful. Take a moonlight carriage ride throughout town...the old historic buildings are mixed with the skyscrapers...all lit up. Gorgeous. We LOVED Boston. We felt safe and welcomed.

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.

We often stay at Park Plaza, primarily because of its location and because it is a great value for downtown Boston. It was easy walking distance to 2 subway lines and also walking distance to the theater district. We saw a spectacular performance of INTO THE WOODS at the Lyric Stage.
