The Midtown Hotel

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Convenient for a weekend visit to Boston.We have stayed here before . It is affordable and parking reasonably priced. The T and Mall a few blocks away as well as Newburyport St.

Reasonable price good value for money well located and connected

I was not expecting the Hilton when I made my reservation, but I was expecting better than this. The hotel looks like it used to be a old college dorm that they converted into a hotel. The front desk staff was professional, but the little details got missed. For example, the daylight savings switch-over had happened a few days before, but my clock still showed the old time. The ironing board was broken, and my florescent bathroom light was clearly on its last legs. One would assume these details were noticed by the cleaning staff well before I arrived and reported to maintenance, but nothing had been done to address the issue. In addition, my used washcloth was removed and not replaced. Not the end of the world, but I was not expecting to have to help the hotel run its own business and report things that should have already been reported and fixed before I arrived.

Spent 2 nights for a college visit with my daughter. Great location and felt safe walking at night time. The rooms are comfortable and clean, nothing fancy.

- no climate control, felt a bit musty/basement-like - old, concave mattress - small bathroom with 6' ceiling inside bathtub - very thin walls (could hear the neighbors down the hall sneeze)

I travel a lot and stay at mostly in average hotels, such as Holiday Inn, Hampton Inn, Embassy Suites, etc.....,this was the worst smelling hotel that I ever been too. Not only the rooms but also the elevator and stairs. It smelled like a combination of urine, vomit, feces and mold. They also charge for parking your car.

Old, smelly, not very clean, no breakfast, parking, wifi. Leaves bitter aftertaste that Boston is so overpriced. Even in california you can get a great room for the same money.

Room lacked microwave and fridge was available only with extra daily charge. Exhaust from street infiltrated the room. Staff was very accommodating and friendly.

Simple , but nice and clean ! I do recommend , close to facilities and transportations , easy walk to food and coffe

No frills, clean, good location for convention center

The Midtown Hotel is a reasonably priced hotel. It has a fireplace in its lobby, and its rooms are large and comfortable. The Hotel is located right across the street from the Prudential Center which has many shops, including Barnes and Noble and Ann Taylor. It also has a number of restaurants. It has a bridge which connects it to the Westin Copley Place shopping plaza which includes stores such as Neiman Marcus and Victoria Secret. It also has restaurants in it. About a block from the Midtown is one of my favorite restaurants, Brasserie Jo, a casual French restaurant. Another plus is that it's a block from the Green Line.

Stayed there for four days. It's the best price I could find for the area, and it's close to everything, I only had to take the metro to go to the airport! Clean rooms with a lot of space. The only negative thing was the noise, walls seem to be thin! But still, I will stay there again if I ever go back to Boston.

Very nice staff; Price so high for this mid-level hotel that would have expected breakfast.

I stayed in this hotel for 4 days and 3 nights. I like the location of the hotel where you get to other places very easily. It's also close to two subway lines. Everything is just standard hotel quality, nothing you wouldn't expect in a hotel did I encounter. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean.

Midtown was in a great location. Very close to the T train system, which we liked. The building was kind of run down a bit and the bed was like sleeping on a rock (but I'm older so maybe it's just me). I didn't find the staff to be very friendly, other than the check in. That's the only time they even spoke to us. But it is the city so, I guess that's how it can be. If you're looking for a good location, with the basic's. this would work fine. But with that being said, I doubt that I would stay here again, mainly because for the price, I would except a little nicer place or at least a better bed. Also if you are in the front of the hotel, it gets really loud with traffic.

When I arrived with 27 students and teachers, the staff had all the rooms ready and organized. Each room was in close proximity to my own allowing me to supervise my students at all times.

Nice hotel, always busy, parking on site was easy (don't forget your ticket!). Good service, good coffee.

It was cheap for one night stay 85 bucks! I will recommend if is a quick visit and you want it to be cheap as possible !

The hotel was basic but clean (with nice smelling shampoos, ample towels and wash cloths), and the location perfect for the Boston MFA, Symphony, Prudential Center area events, plus, easy access to the T green line, which can take you with transfers anywhere. I felt Midtown Hotel (years ago Midtown Motel I believe) offered good value for a stay in pricey Boston.

It was OK. The room was generally good overall and I only rated it down for one reason: the room had this somewhat odd, pungent smell, as if too muh cleaners were used. Not the ammonia urine smell associated with pet urine but similar (they allow pets). I don't know what it was but it was noticeable. Other than a toilet bowl that was clean but had an awkward yellow appearance all else not bad. Oh, I didn't try Thornton's restaurant nearby. I must say I was not impressed. Food OK, standard breakfast and lunch fare. Service NOT too good. Too busy to be friendly and you WILL wait. Also closes rather early. Table difficult to find. Finally, Midtown is not really that close to downtown so don't be fooled. You need to take the subway (which is close) in front of Colonnade Hotel (about a block away). Its a snap though, go downstairs at,Subway entrance (can't miss it) and first machine you come to pay $2.65 for commuter rail, slightly higher for round trip and transfers, punchanged in ticket at gate and you are in. Overall, OK hotel experience and I guess I would stay again. It's very good for the price so if on a tighter budget I would not hesitate to stay. Just don't expect the Hilton and you are good to go.
