I spent 4 nights here with a friend at the end of February and I found the Hilton Back Bay to be quite adequate for my needs. Reception was quiet so we had a quick check in, and any of the front desk staff I dealt with were polite and attentive.
Our room was on the top floor with a nice view of the city. The room was nice and clean with a large TV, mini-bar, tea/coffee making facilities and a small bathroom. Some other reviewers have complained about the small bathrooms, but really, how much space does one need in a bathroom? The water was hot, required supplies were plentiful and towels were refreshed as required. Job done!
The location was good with The Prudential Centre, Newberry St. and a T station all within a few minutes walk. I didn't use the restaurant or gym so I cant personally comment on those although my friend did use the gym and pool and found them clean and sufficient for his needs.
My one minor gripe would be the lack of Wi-Fi in the rooms. I simply went down to the lobby where complimentary Wi-Fi was available so it wouldn't be a deal breaker for me.
The Hilton Back Bay, while not the lap of luxury, was more than adequate as a base for me to explore the city. My compliments on the general cleanliness of the entire hotel, the politeness of the staff, and the attention of the staff that serviced the room on a daily basis. I would give this hotel consideration for a return visit.
