    Years ago there may have been mold. I'm here now, 5/10/2011 and see/smell no mold. Gorgeous, grand hotel. One of my favorites. Check out Sweet, AK cupcake shop on newbury-aboit a half mile stroll

    The Park Plaza takes you back in time. Small rooms, but worth the experience. Check out the old chute mailing system and elevators while you're here!

    Get the running map from Concierge. Long check-in lines. Historical hotel = few power outlets, flaky wifi, but walking proximity to Back Bay, Newbury St, Boston Common + historical charm is worth it.

    Large flats teen TVs, incredibly comfy beds, very clean, and charming. Close to the T (green line) and the Common. Only drawback is the quite expensive fee for wifi ($12.50 per device per day).

    They turn off the A/C when it is cool outside, so it gets warm in the rooms. Ask for a window fan when you check in, and ask to have someone open the window for you since they are bolted shut.

    Yes, it is dated & not "modern" by any means, but everything is clean; service is great; beds are very comfortable. I'd recommend to anyone looking for a decent place to stay while exploring Boston.

    This is a great hotel. Friendly staff, historical. Room sizes reflect age, but are very nice. Close to the T and a nice shopping district, parks, harbor, etc.

    If you stay here, you must invest in the 15th flr rooms (towers level). Updated, free wifi, deluxe continental bfast, evening snacks & hors d'oeuvres, free paper daily if you choose, flat screen plasm

    Staff was courteous and helpful. We experienced free wifi on the 12th floor, not sure if this is because we were close to the towers or if this is a new addition. A nice beautiful old hotel.

    Learn about the history of the hotel just around the corner from the main desk. This is the original bar drink menu.

    After the renovations, the rooms are very well anointed. Things are brighter, calm and muted colours. Really like the new look. Service is still impeccable.

    Located in a great neighborhood a couple blocks from Boston Commons. Also, happy to say they have wifi now for a nominal daily rate in the hotel rooms.

    Great service, hotel is beautiful and well kept. Across from the T, short walk to the gardens, and close to all the good stuff! I approve!

    Nice comfortable room. Friendly staff. No wifi in rooms is a WTF, but it's avail downstairs and possible in room if lucky. Excellent location, close to everything.

    This hotel is very nice! Take a look around and notice all of detail. If these walls could talk! Great location as well!

    Really noisy place with unsettling experience of sharing a room with your neighbours because the walls are so thin. And come on, make the wifi free in the rooms. But, location is super.

    People weren't so fat and self righteous as they are now ninety years ago. That's why the rooms are small. It gets the job done; you have a place to rest your head when you're not exploring downtown.

    Very warm and friendly hotel. They just made the whole hotel wireless (at a fee & NOT free) and installed 37 inch Plasma TVs in every room.

    Bathroom's tiny, walls let in a LOT of sound, & maids skipped cleaning one day. Great if you love old architecture, building's gorgeous!

    I recommend continuing your hotel search unless you like historic color palettes, laughable elevator algorithms, and hallways that take the space your room so desperately needs.

    The WiFi is spotty-to-non-existant in the rooms, but it's fast in the lobby. Plus there's a guest only lounge to the right of the main doors.

    the room is neet and the location is good too. 1min walk to the subway station and there are lots of shops around.

    This is an example of the grand hotel of yesteryear. It is clean. However, it is in need of some serious infrastructure updates like the electrical. There is no electrical outlet in the bathroom.

    It's a historical hotel people, of course it's going to be "dated". Beautiful moldings & fixtures, very well kept despite age. Extremely friendly service.

    Reserve the Towers level. Delicious and plentiful breakfast and afternoon snacks. Definitely worth the upcharge.

    Rooms are Victorian, quaint. Ask for a room on the Statler Park/Columbus Ave side for a better view.

    Maybe people power worked! Lobby now has 3 minute wifi free. Lobby appears remodelled with a number of chairs.
  • Jonathon S.
    Clean rooms, pool, fancy lobby. Small room, old tv, small beds. Rooms don't have wifi and the wired Internet is +$10. If your a business person, bring your own.

    Beautiful hotel, but no wifi except in the lounge. Also, all the restaurants and in-hotel bar close super early.

    Mixed review. The A/C didn't work at all. Our room never got below 75 so they comped our room and gave us breakfast vouchers. Walls were very thin. Loved the location and history of the hotel.

    $10.45 per day for wired Internet in your room and wireless only in the lobby = fail. Otherwise a nice place to stay. They even offered to bring a fridge to our room.

    These rooms feature the Keurig Brewing System. So if you don't like the Paul NewMan's fair trade they offer, bring your favorite K-Cup when you stay here.
