Holiday Inn Boston Brookline
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Brookline
Reviewed 16 June 2014

I chose this hotel recently for a business trip as most other places were cray priced throughout the graduation week in Boston. The hotel certainly has gotten a bit aged, however, it was a solid experience all around. Plus, the location was very convenient getting to most locations around Boston in a short time by cab or car. Public transport stop right in front of the hotel adds to the flexibility if you want to go into Cambridge/Boston Downtown.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing outside, otherwise a bit dark experience.

I loved my stay at the Holiday Inn in Brookline! The staff was extremely friendly and the Engineering staff was very responsive and helpful when I called the front desk and made a request. The location of the hotel is great as well. Not far from the city at all. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

I've stayed at Holiday Inn Brookline 4 times now. I go to Boston for medical care and with the Shuttle to the hospitals, the hospital room rate, and the convenience of public transportation, this hotel is exceptional. There was a mix up with my room on one occasion a couple of years ago, but hotel staff corrected it promptly. The staff has always been helpful and friendly. The Shuttle drivers are very nice. The hotel itself has very nice decor and the rooms are spacious and kept very clean. Temperature control in the rooms is excellent, unlike many other hotels I've stayed at (either too hot or too cold). Taxi's are lined up along the street in front of the hotel and easy to get to take you to the Galleria Mall, Museums, and other local attractions. Nice restaurants, coffee shops, Trader Joe's, Drug store, etc. located within just a couple of blocks of the hotel. Would recommend to anyone going to Boston.

Room Tip: If you have trouble walking long distances request a room on the 1st floor toward the front of the h...

We stayed here for a conference at BU. It was a 15 minute walk but it was pleasant, through real neighborhoods and through a park. They let us check in early and check out late, which was nice. We stayed on the 6th floor, and the room was clean and comfortable. We did want a refrigerator, so they had to bring one from another room, and the first one didn't work. It was on, but it didn't work. The guy who came to service it listened to it and said "it is working." That was a little annoying, but when we said "no its not", they went and brought another one. The price for the room seemed high, but it seems to be the going rate for the area. Internet worked fine. There is only one elevator for the whole place, and that did cause a wait a few times. It is on the "C" Green line for the MTA; very convenient.

Room Tip: If you don't want to wait for the elevator, get a room on the first floor.

The hotel is located very close to many colleges and universities, of which BU is the closest. It appears that the staff really worked at trying to accommodate all of your requests, and that is great to hear, however I am somewhat disappointed in the response of the engineer that was called to your room, which I will address. The hotel is steps away fro public transportation, the "T", which can get you in and out of Boston and the surrounding neighborhoods easily. We hope to see you the next time you are in town for business or pleasure and thank you for writing us.

Location from Logan Airport is good and also convenient for many local attractions. Not a baseball fan but Fenway park is only 5 or 6 mins away by foot. Transit system stops right outside the hotel. Receptionist from Sunderland UK was excellent....best asset in the hotel. Used the parking but only for a couple of hours, but at $29.00 a day !!! That's exorbitant. You have to go outside, no basement affair, and down a really cruddy alley way. Would not trust it in the dark. Stayed here before some years ago and the breakfast chef made some good omelets...but now its powdered eggs !!

Thank you for sharing your comments with us. The hotel has several parking areas one under our main garage and an auxiliary garage adjacent to the hotel, and the fees are really competitive as some hotels with in a few miles are $40.00 or higher. In regards to your comments regarding the eggs, and I can assure you they are not powdered but fresh, but I will make sure that we are paying closer attention to changing them more frequently to ensure their quality. The MBTA, located outside our door does go to the airport, convenient for those traveling with out a car. Thank you again for taking the time to write.

We stayed here when our granddaughter was born at Brigham and Women's Hospital, then transferred to Boston Children's Hospital. We wanted to be near both hospitals, and the Holiday Inn/Brookline was perfect. Check-In was fast and friendly. Parking in the garage was convenient (although it is $29/night). Our room was clean and comfortable. All of the staff we encountered during our stay were very friendly and helpful, and shared our happiness when she was born! We will be coming to Boston quite a bit in the next few months, and will stay here again.
Yes, it could use a facelift, which I understand will happen in 2015. But it served our needs perfectly, it was clean, and the service was great.

My husband and i were in Boston for the happy occasion of our son's graduation from Boston College. We booked the hotel several months in advance realizing that it would be difficult to find accommodations at the last minute. The location is a good one; the hotel is within walking distance to a small business district that has several good coffee shops and cafes. I found it odd that there was no bellman or concierge to hail cabs, and you need to stand on the corner and do your own flagging down.
The room was adequate but nothing special. The toiletries were extremely pedestrian and the towels were small. I also found it odd that the bed pillows were these small, square things. I guess I was expecting a bit more than a very bland room for the $300.+ we paid per night. Parking was convenient ( underground) but be aware that the spaces are tiny!
The breakfast buffet was just OK. Again, the food was very nondescript with the exception of the croissant I had, which was inedible. The complimentary coffee in the lobby is only available in the morning hours but was a nice touch nonetheless.
The next time i find myself in the Boston area, I may take a look at the Boston Harbor Hotel.It certainly looks lovely!

Room Tip: Stay away from the atrium rooms!
