I stayed at this property for 3 nights in April 2012 for a convention. I loved the close proximity to The Prudential Center Complex (right across the street where the Hynes Convention Center is located), Fenway Park, and the Charles River, which are in short walking distance.
The property itself seems to be well maintained and the staff was friendly and helpful when I asked for directions or information about landmarks and destinations in the area.
The room I had was spacious and with a large flat screen TV. I was also on the 24th floor which afforded a great view of the city. The beds were comfy and I had no problems with the initial cleanliness of the room or how it was maintained.
There were some noise issues that were bothersome, the toilet flushing was extremely loud and I could hear toilets flushing in the rooms surrounding mine. There also wasn't great insulation from hallway noise. Additionally the air conditioning unit was frighteningly loud. The unit turned on almost explosively and I was startled and jumped every time it cycled on. These annoyances were very disruptive when I was trying to go to sleep.
The things I hated about staying here was the parking rate (an exorbitant $41 per night) and the internet policy (in room internet $14.95 PER DEVICE). If you must charge for in room internet, why charge the fee per device? The charge should be per room regardless as to the number of devices you use while in your room. Hilton, that's just greedy!
