Room & Suite (199)

Built in 1877 as the Sumner Hotel in the heart of the Theatre District by respected architect Harris M. Stephenson (1845 - 1909), Found Boston is one of the oldest continuously operated hotels in Boston's downtown area. The hotel's enduring presence is due to a number of factors, but probably none as important as "location." An easy walk of just two or three blocks leads guests to such attractions as the historic Boston Common, the Public Garden, and numerous theaters, restaurants & clubs. For those wishing to venture out a bit further from the downtown area, The hotel is one block from the MBTA's Green Line - Boylston Street Station, gateway to outstanding cultural and historical attractions which make Boston one of the most popular destinations of domestic and foreign travelers. The hotel's reputation as Boston's "Best Value" is earned from affordable rates and exceptional amenities. So, whether on business or pleasure, the Milner Hotel offers you Boston's Best Location and Best Value. All rates include complimentary continental breakfast which includes juice, Lavazza coffee, assorted teas, yogurt, cereals, fresh whole fruit and freshly made waffles. Helpful tips: Tip #1: Please note that our address is 78 Charles Street SOUTH. There is also an address which is 78 Charles Street - that is NOT us. Tip #2: The hotel was previously known as the "Milner Hotel". If your taxi driver is not familiar with our new name, let them know that under prior ownership the hotel was called the "Milner Hotel" and they should quickly be able to find the hotel.

My overall experience of the hotel was 'ok'. It is a very cheap hotel considering it's right in the center of Boston, amazing location. I came as a single traveler to come and explore Boston and I walked everywhere! My final room ( will explain later in text) was quite

The overall interior of the hotel is extremely unimpressive and the people who work for this hotel are extremely rude and short tempered. Overall this hotel is not worth any amount of money and no one should ever have to suffer the psychological torment of being treated so
