    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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Lovely building and room was great but stay away from the woman on the tourist trip desk (Carolyn)..she gave us duff info which led us on a wasted trip and costing us more money .. complained

    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.

  • Erik V.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
  • 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.

    $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.

    The air conditioning at this hotel is almost pointless during the summer. Our rooms never got any colder, they just kept warming up. They updated the thermostats, but the coolers are weak.

    Make sure you ask for a room on the non-construction side of the hotel. The saw, drill, and hammer well into the night. Very noisy.

    They call a tiny room with only one double bed "comfortable for two adults" and told me it's their standard room. Is the standard for super skinny people in Africa?
