Centrally located hotel with recently renovated rooms
Standard rooms are on the smaller side
Situated in the heart of downtown Boston, within walking distance of the Boston Public Garden, Boston Common and Newbury Street's high-end restaurants and shops, Boston Park Plaza is perfectly located for both business and leisure travelers. An iconic staple of the city's skyline for nearly a century, the hotel has attracted a well-heeled clientele for generations and underwent an extensive renovation in 2017. The updated guest rooms and suites boast crisp white decor and dark wood accents, plus perks like smart TVs and blackout shades. However, standard rooms only offer 150 square feet of space. For more room, consider upgrading to the Garden Suite or the Presidential Suite, which come with a full kitchen or bar. No matter which accommodation you choose, you'll have access to on-site facilities like 32 meeting and event spaces, a fitness center and a restaurant with fresh, Boston-inspired cuisine. Recent guests said the highlight of this hotel is its central location, though the professional customer service and clean rooms also received high praise. Keep in mind that because this property is a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts group, iPrefer Hotel Rewards members can accrue or use points when staying here.

Boston Magazine


Located on Arlington Street between the Public Garden and the Theater District, Boston Park Plaza has welcomed presidents, celebrities, and everyday travelers for 90 years.

Fodor's Travel


The old-school 1927 building is just as historically grand as ever, as evidenced in its gilded, chandelier-lighted lobby, which houses the new restaurant and lounge, Off the Common, and classically decorated rooms.


Built in 1927, this huge, historic hotel has a grand lobby and a central location near the Boston Common, but its rooms are a bit older and cramped, and its restaurants and amenities are unremarkable.
