“Reasonable, adequate hotel in good location”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We stayed 5 nights for a short break and the location was excellent for sightseeing. Good size rooms, a little worn and could benefit from redecoration soon, but quiet and comfortable with quiet A/C. Pleasant and helpful staff.

This is probably one of the saddest Hiltons I've stayed at and I would've hoped that a downtown Hilton would be a lot nicer than this one. The staff was great and I got upgraded to a suite and the location is very convenient. As a diamond member I got complimentary breakfast but we were totally ignored by the restaurant staff when we went down to the restaurant - pretty disappointing. I had no views from the room at all, and because the building is so old the windows were very small and the room was very dark. There are much nicer hotels in Boston and I'll probably won't stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for something with a view if at all possible

I will always stay at this hotel when I am in Boston. The staff was helpful and went out off their way to meet my needs. They went out late at night to get me distilled water that I needed for a medical machine I have to use. Thank You.

I am puzzled by reviews that rate this Hilton as one of the best. I found it to be mediocre.
The pros:(1) we were upgraded to a king suite - nice and comfortable, (2) the location - as others have described a short walk to many shops, restaurants and tourist sites, (3) John the concierge - the best aspect of the hotel. John was terrifically helpful and provided some perfect restaurant recommendations and reservations for us.
The cons: (1) no executive lounge - my first experience with a business Hilton that did not have a lounge, (2) poor selection of breakfast and even worse coffee - swamp water I suspect tastes similar, (3) with one or two exceptions (other than super John) the staff were disinterested and unfriendly - again a very unusual experience at a Hilton.
Tip: if you are staying there make your restaurant reservations through John - not only are his recommendations terrific, but the restaurant treats you as a vip with complementary appy or dessert when John makes the call.

Room Tip: high floor is quieter - suites are spacious and have kitchen, small fridge etc

Dear novascotiakate,

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to comment. We sincerely appreciate the kind words about our excellent Lead Concierge, John. We are extremely concerned though that the entire team did not leave up to this standard. We strive to provide warm and genuinely helpful hospitality at each and every interaction--not just one or two interactions. We apologize that this wasn't your experience, and we will ensure we react to do much better.

Sincerely,
Brian Martens

Based on other reviews, asked for a corner room. King Deluxe, 8th floor, very reasonable sr citizen or AAA rate for this area of the city. Close to the wharf, Faneuil Hall and the T blue and orange lines. Very fast by subway from the airport, then taxi to the hotel, total $10 for 2.

We are on the 8th floor, it is quiet and well lit. A request to fix a lamp was addressed immediately. A couple rooms with loud guests down the hall on Fri night; I think mgmt must have addressed it because after 10:30 there was no more noise. I like having a minifridge, coffee and creamer in the room, deli across the street and very good restaurants nearby. Fast elevators. Will stay here again.

First of all, I'm a Boston Native who was returning home for a business trip. Anyway, I loved the location for this hotel - it is within walking distance and cab ride for most attractions.

The hotel restaurant was very good. The restaurant went above and beyond to serve lunch for us in the Library during an "informal business meeting"! Warning: Breakfast buffet is overpriced for the value- so I'd skip that meal at the hotel - but lunch & dinner is much better value.

Cristine at the front desk was great - accommodating every small request! I was concerned about staying close to the ice machine - but never heard a thing!

As stated, I really enjoyed my stay - but Housekeeping needs to pay more attention to details - chipped tub & sink & "hair" in the tub and around toilet - yick!

Room Tip: Request a corner room with a view - I had a slight view of the ocean. Housekeeping needs to pay a b...
