Original plaster moldings and a chandeliered gilt-and-cream lobby grace this grand hotel created in 1927 by renowned hotelier E.M. Statler.

A Boston mainstay - it was built as the Statler Hilton in 1927 - the Park Plaza does a hopping convention and function business. It's the antithesis of generic, with an old-fashioned atmosphere and a cavernous, ornate lobby, yet it offers modern comforts. A $60 million renovation completed in 2001 u...

An older hotel definitely. The rooms are small & the bathrooms are a bit cramped but it is comfortable enough for the vacation traveler.

Over priced, dirty, and depressing - user review
I just came back from 2 nights at this over priced mortuary. The doors looked like they had coffin lids on them, and the rooms were small enough to complete the feel. The floor tiles and carpets were in poor shape and dirt, the shower leaked from someplace causing the wood in the bathroom to decay, ...

Not worth it... - user review
I stayed at the Park Plaza when attending a formal dance held there and let me say its not worth it. While the hotel is beautiful when you walk in, the rooms are just average for the price. Parking at the hotel was very expensive and the service was horrible. It took us 30 mins to get our car and th...

My recent stay at this hotel was absolutely horrible. I arrived exhuasted after a 6 hour flight. Had reserved two rooms there, 4 months in advance.

Not impressed at all! - user review
I was extremely disappointed in the hotel. We needed to call room service 3x for towels & shampoo & even after the third time it still took 45 minutes to receive them. There was a huge water patch on the floor approx. the size of a chair. Our view was a brick wall. And we had many problems with the ...

Splendid grand old hotel - user review
My husband, 4 year old son and I all had a wonderful time at the Boston Park Plaza. It's such a grand, elegant old hotel I wanted to hang out in the lobby and just soak in the atmosphere!

Really nice hotel with a lot of character and obvious history. Our room was quite large and, although the beds were only double size, the beds were very comfortable.

Mice in our room - user review
Spent the weekend in Boston with my teenage daughter and her friend. Our first suite was supposed to have a pull out sofa but did not. Moved to a second suite on the 14th floor only to encounter mice in the room. Staff did not seem concerned and were unprepared to deal with it. I had to trap one of ...

Loud & Noisy - user review
The Boston Park Plaza Hotel is extremely loud and noisy. Located in a busy area, the city noise is overwhelming and even with all the windows closed it is too loud to sleep. When we asked management to move us, they were unhelpful and rude. We actually downgraded ourselves from a suite to a regular ...

I have read all the reviews and was skeptical at first but stayed there for new years and there is a trick in getting a good room.

This hotel is a complete sham. The economy rooms are a joke. I paid $189/night for one of the smallest rooms I have ever seen (smaller than many rooms I have seen in Europe) It gets MUCH worse.

This hotel will not disappoint you in any way. Off season and weekend rates are reasonable for Boston. Expect to pay almost twice as much for a weekday room.
