This is our 2nd hotel during our Cosmos Tour. Very clean , staff are friendly. Free wifi in all rooms. Breakfast are fresh, good choice of food. Price is little high though, needs pay nearly $ 20.00 per person. A little bit far from city centre, Über off peak cost around $ 11.00.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 November 2016

It is good place for those that will need to go to Chestnut Hill, Newton, Brookline, or Watertown. The views are pretty cool at night seeing all the cars driving on turnpike under the hotel. The swimming pool and gym facility are pretty clean and was never crowded while we were there. The location is not the best for those...

Dear Michael, Thank you so much for this great feedback. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your visit with us and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Stayed here for two nights with a tour group. Being a travel agent I was aware that this hotel was out of the city but other guests on the tour were really disappointed. The hotel is located right on over the motor way, it's actually quite bizarre and yes you can hear the traffic at night. Therefore it's not close...

Visiting Harvard for a conference, wanted to avoid overpriced Harvard Hotels. The Crowne Plaza looked OK, pricewise, though we were unsure of how convenient it would be to Harvard. Turned out that there was a very convenient and direct #71 bus from Watertown Sq, just a pleasant 10 minutes walk away (and some nice restaurants on the walk). Crowne Plaza...

My partner and I stayed here for New Year's Eve last year. We live nearby but thought it would be nice to stay closer to Boston for the night and get out of the house. Plus, the room was relatively inexpensive. We were pushed out of the way for incoming cabs by young 20-somethings trying to leave the hotel. When...

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza the Boston Marathon weekend and it was great! The hotel was clean and quiet and the service was great.

Parking situation is terrible. The only option is a big empty garage for $28/night. The front desk will NOT reduce that price. There really isn't anywhere else to park so you are stuck. The room itself was fine and the hotel is pretty nice inside, but it's not worth feeling like you've been scammed the whole time.

Dear Jas891, We're so sorry to hear the parking situation was so frustrating during your visit. The hotel utilizes a garage for our guests which is owned by another entity. We hold spots for our guests and pass along the fee for guests who have a car through the room bill. We do try to soften the $28 cost by...

I heard good things about this "3.5 star" on the outskirts of Boston. We came here for a fun weekend and knew this hotel had to be good with such great reviews on TA and another site.
