Within easy walking distance of parks and restaurants, I liked the location. The staff was very friendly. The bathroom was very very small! My room was large and luxurious (with a walk-in closet!) but my bathroom was tiny. The shower curtain was very flimsy (as expected given such a small shower space) and water got everywhere. It was a mess.... More

This review is biased and not in a good way. We were in a party enjoying New England and Canada in the Fall by coach. The package included porterage and we had been assured by our Tour Manager that our cases were counted onto the coach at the airport and would be counted out at our hotel stop each day,... More

My best friend and I took a girls weekend and stayed at the BPP for 3 nights. The price was a steal considering the location and amenities at this hotel. We had a cosy queen room and it was on the small side but we were perfectly comfortable. The lobby is beautiful and it smells heavenly. They must pump some... More

Stay at the hotel last night and enjoyed the easy check in and the online check out. Rooms have room darker shades, so sleeping late in the room was great. The room on the 7 floor was very quit, plenty of room, love the two head shower. Extra large bathroom

Me and my partner stayed here for two nights. We stayed in a cosy room on the 6th floor. First impressions from the hotel are brilliant the lobby is beautiful and very grand. You can tell there has been a renovation. The room was small but I guess that's why you call it a cosy room. We had two big... More

The Plaza is the new event in hotel life! A really urban feel, clean lines, elegant simplicity and a real pleasant feel in design, decor, and amenities. The staff are friendly and approachable. We had a room facing Charles Street, 11th floor, with a great view. Elevators get you up and down with no lines, no waiting. We loved this... More

Please be aware that there is cooked into every night stay a $15+ fee, plus tax. This was my main objection.

The room was small but clean, perfect for a quick business trip. The bathroom was tiny and had little to no storage place for personal items. Nice lobby, friendly staff, and the breakfast was ok. Would stay again when I need a place in Boston.

My family of 4 stayed here because they had 2 queen sized beds and it was in a great location at a very reasonable price (with prepay rate) for Boston.

We had a "queen superior" room. Nicely renovated, seemed like brand new carpeting, wall coverings, tiled bathroom. Pretty small space if you were staying more than a few days. Comfortable chair and movable table so you can read newspaper or do some paperwork, but no desk. Good lighting, if a bit bright, however bathroom had nightlight which not many hotels... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
