Spent two nights here in September while going to Fenway Park for Red Sox games. Yes, it is expensive for sure, but sometimes you just have to splurge and enjoy. We had a "panoramic view" room on the 24th floor, and could see sailboats on the river and soft lights at night that seemed to warm the room for us. We slept with the curtains wide open and found it immensely relaxing. The room was sparkling clean with a terrific shower and bathroom. Loved the layout of the room as well. Very nice TV to watch the report on the game after. Easy to park when we arrived, but we did not take the car out until we checked out...instead walked everywhere. Plenty of restaurants nearby, shopping on Newbury Street, and an inside mall that is connected around several of the nearby hotels by skywalks. Plenty to do! The staff here was pleasant, but seemed to remain distant, answering questions as briefly as possible. They just did not seem to want to spend much time with the guests. I had a difficult time using the Apple computer to print boarding passes, and had to continue to struggle with the printer for quite some time, and not one staff member ever showed up during that time...found that annoying. Basically the staff had a "bother us only when you really need something " attitude. Have seen far better staff personnel at other Hiltons. But the room was well worth the stay and very enjoyable. If not for the somewhat snooty staff I would rate this hotel higher. Don't let the staff keep you away, as this is a fine place to enjoy.
