Super hotel near the Common and Emerson College

Posted Aug 29, 2015
We stayed for 6 nights to enjoy the City and then move our daughter in to Emerson college. The location was incredible. Near the Arlington T stop, walking distance to the Boston Common and Emerson college. Our room was wonderful and the staff in all areas of the hotel were friendly and helpful. Because of the high parking costs, we chose not to keep a car and walked and used the T. The one day we needed a car, we rented at Hertz right behind the hotel for the day. I will definitely be staying here again.

great location

Posted Aug 27, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: A lot
Grand old hotel in need of a more comprehensive update. While the main lobby and some areas have been updated, the property is still largely a 3 star.

Bring an electric blanket

Posted Aug 27, 2015
If you love meat lockers this is the place for you! The room was freezing; I had to turn off the a.c. as it was stuck on "arctic." And the coffee maker was broken. Otherwise it was fine. Nice lobby bar. So if you don't mind shivering and don't suffer from caffeine withdrawal, this is the place for you.

対応が良く、とても綺麗なホテルで満足しました。

Posted Aug 26, 2015
工事作業中ということで、安くホテルに宿泊することができました。 ホテル内は綺麗で、とても雰囲気が良いものでした。 シャワーの使い方が分からなかったり、カードキーの不具合などもありましたが、ホテルマンの方が快く対応して頂き、満足のいくものでした。 また、機会があれば宿泊したいと思います。

The rooms are tiny (especially the bathrooms) !

Posted Aug 25, 2015
Pros: Great location, great staff and service.
Cons: The bathrooms are tiny and the rooms need to be renovated.
Location: The Boston Commons, Chinatown, Copley Square are all within walking distance. The Green line Arlington stop is a crosswalk away from the entrance.
The park plaza is a historic hotel that may be too historic for its own goods. The lobby has been remodeled and looks fantastic as much as it does from the pictures. However, the rooms are tiny, and the bathrooms are literally antiquated. The shower stall is so small the curtain will literally stick to you while you shower. They are planning room renovations, but that is slated to start November 2015. Until then, I wouldn't stay here unless its a great price. The location is fantastic, but you'll definitely sacrifice comfort for it.

Pros: location
Cons: rooms
Location: Near Boston Garden, restaurants, Copley Square, easy access to T.

Excelente Ubicación en Boston

Posted Aug 24, 2015
Pros: Hotel antiguo de estilo, bastante renovado, y con muy buena ubicación
Cons: Servicio de valet parking
Location: Cerca del hotel está el inicio del circuito a pie que recorre los sitios históricos de la libertad. También muy cercano está el gran parque.
Muy bien ubicado, con rápido acceso a los mejores sitios de la ciudad, muy cerca de estación de trenes, alquiler de autos, y muy cerca del Parque.

Albergo storico nel centro di Boston

Posted Aug 23, 2015
Pros: Centralità e stile
Albergo un po' datato ma di ottimo livello nel centro di Boston. A due passi dal parco centrale e dalla via dello shopping Newsbury street. Comodissimo se si vuole visitare La parte storica di Boston - Il Freedom Trail parte dal parco.
