Reviewed 26 March 2014

We attended event at TD garden and this hotel is exactly across the street and 2easy walking blocks to Quincy market & aquarium &new carousel! Suite room was great for 4 or with kids! Sofa bed mattress was awful! But regular bed was great! They also had a great free breakfast! And the concierge...Ms. Chen was extremely nice, knowledgeable & helpful!! No pool. But fitness center. Great location if you are attending TD event!! I did think it was a bit pricey but I had to pay $250+ for convenience for my family.

We stayed here on St. Partick's day and have nothing but good things to say. The valet service was speedy, the rooms comfy, the front desk staff were warm and welcoming and the location was perfect for attending a Bruins game. It is very obvious that they take great pride in the service that provide their guests. We will defiantly be staying here again and would highly recommend to anybody!

The best thing about the Holiday Inn is that it is only a short walk to the Boston Garden. It was clean and the staff was friendly. The room was comfortable. The room price was good, but the parking was a little high. I will be back.

Boston is an expensive place to stay, so we chose this as we wanted to keep costs down (we stayed there for business).
The staff was great and the location (right opposite the TD Garden sporting stadium) was spot-on also.

If I go back to Boston, this will be the place I stay.

Room Tip: If possible, try to stay in a room away from the main road as the occasional emergency vehicle may w...

We stayed here while in town to attend a Bruins game. This hotel is as close as you can get to the arena. Easily within walking distance. It's an older hotel that has been updated, and was very nice. Plenty to do in the immediate area, within walking distance. The employees were extremely helpful and friendly. Continental breakfast, while simple, is always a plus. Bed was extremely comfortable and the pillows were too (both soft and firm were available). Water was nice and warm, making for an enjoyable shower. Hotel was very clean. Would stay here again.

The Holiday Inn Express Boston Garden has really great staff, the rooms were nice and clean, there were complimentary refreshments in the lobby, and there was even a handwritten welcome note on our desk. Overall I would give it a 5 star rating, except that the location wasn't ideal and I couldn't have known that without knowing the area. If I had been traveling alone I wouldn't have felt safe about leaving or returning to the hotel in the evening, but I was with my husband. That said, it was game night for the Celtics and the TD Garden is right across the street from the hotel. The location WAS ideal in the sense that it was very easy to get around to lots of places we wanted to visit such as Quincy Market / Faneuil Hall, some great historic pubs, train etc.
We slept in a room facing the main street (Friend street) and it was not noisy, so no worries in that department!

Dear snowbirdling,
Thank you for being our guest recently and taking the time to send us your feedback. We were pleased to hear that you enjoyed our staff, everything was very clean and some of the little touches we add like our lobby beverage stand. I apologize for you feeling that the neighborhood might not be safe. This area, the West End of the city, is a neat, historic area and very safe to be outside and to explore. We hope you will return again soon and thank you.

This is a perfect hotel if you are looking for a quick stay in Boston. We stayed here for three nights, the train connects to all the main lines and it is close to all the top attractions. Plus, they take care of your bags of your flight leaves later!
