The Midtown Hotel

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our only issue was the room was to warm and we could not adjust the heat. It was borderline stifling during the night. For the price the room was fine. Location was perfect for where we needed to be in Boston.

great location. Parking rates can't be beat in Boston.

A nice, clean facility. No frills. Super friendly and responsive staff. Great location within walking distance of museums and other attractions. I'll stay there again next time I'm in Boston.

. I enjoyed a large room with a Queen bed, sofa and desk , including a coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave - very clean and quiet. Staff gladly carried my luggage up to the 2nd floor and down for checkout. - no elevator to the second floor - but there is a wheelchair lift making the first floor rooms wheelchair accessible. The hotel staff were very pleasant and efficient - with plenty of information about tourist options and transportation - Hop on Hop Off tourist bus stop is close by and tickets available at the hotel. Walk 1 block to the Symphony T stop or 2 blocks to the Prudential stop - Green line E - which goes Inbound to Copley Square, and Government Center etc. or outbound to the Museum of Fine Arts. Midtown Hotel does not provide breakfast, ( no restaurant or room service), but I recommend the Thornton Restaurant one block away for pancakes, eggs, etc. I had tickets to a concert at NEC's Jordan Hall - and was delighted to find it only 3 blocks away and close to restaurants for pre-concert dining. There is even a Whole Foods store nearby!.

Large, comfortable rooms in a great location. Nothing fancy but clean and well kept.

Good, cheap option in Boston's Back Bay section. Walking distance to everything you need in the city. Easy access to the T to Cambridge. Good economical choice. Nothing fancy.

Good doble bedroom, comfortable beds, easy to walk to trein stations and shopping center, near good restaurants. Helpful staff. Older construction hence noise through windows. Bring earplugs if you get facing street rooms. Will stay there again but I’ll come prepared.

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.
