Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Boston Back Bay
Great place, great location.
Just got back from a weekend stay. What a great room. We ended up in one of there corner rooms which have three picture windows in a baywindow shape giving you an incredible panorama. Unique. The service was great and the price was $119 including parking. (You are very close to the T-stop, and right off from Boylson St.. Newberry St. is just 2 blocks away, and coming of the Mass. Pike it couldn't be easier to find. We walked to the commons and Downtown crossing, which took about 25 mins total and it's about a good 15 min. walk to Fenway. Swimming Pool is small, no sauna or hot tub. Weight room is nice. But Boston isn't about staying in your hotel. We didn't try the hotel dinning, but the bar is very nice. Very clean and although our room only had a shower it was very large and had a double shower head set up which was very nice. I very much recommnd.
WOW! It was great!!!!
We have been visiting Boston for over 5 years as our daughter is in her last year at Northeastern. We have stayed at many hotels in Boston.
This was the first time that we were priviledged to stay at the Hilton for First Night. EVERYONE at the hotel was VERY friendly and went out of their way to be very helpful. It was unbelievable! My favorite story was when my daughter and I were in the elevator and a man from room service got on with a luncheon tray and asked us if we ordered room service. He said it was a new service for the New Year - serving lunch in the elevator! That is just a sample of the open friendliness that occurred. The rooms were wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days there for First Night! Many thanks!
Loved the Hilton
Just returned from a weekend in Boston at the Back Bay Hilton. It was very enjoyable. The hotel is very well maintained and the room was extremely clean. Bed was comfortable. Had a standard room with a great view of the city. Staff were very efficient and friendly. Breakfast was good as was the supper in the bar. Location was very convenient to the Prudential Center complex and Copley Place. Also, the green line subway stop was within walking distance. Would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
Excellent location and service, comfortable rooms
We stayed five nights Hilton Boston Back Bay. Our room was spacious, clean, well-equipped. There was a coffee maker and complimentary coffee and the staff arranged a refrigerator in our room (20 $). The service was excellent, polite and friendly, and the location was very good indeed, near Prudential Center and Copley Place. There's plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby. The lobby and hallways were exceptionally clean and well-kept. Everything went as smoothly as possible during our stay. I definitely want to recommend this hotel, if you're planning to visit Boston. We enjoyed staying at Hilton. I also have to say that Boston is probably the most enjoyable city I've been to.
Get the deluxe room
Although we did not stay at standard room where most guests usually stay, our deluxe room was a lot more than we have expected. Very large room with panoramic surrounding window with view of the town, double shower in marble bathroom, large working area,... Vallet staffs were extremely courteous, so were the front desk staffs. Very knowledgable.
(Parking is whopping $30/n but you'll end up paying about the same at any hotel in the area. You can self park at large private garage next door for less if you like.) Breakfast was okay, but i'd rather eat at other places near by. Only one thing I was disapointed about was their lobby, and gym/pool area.(not worth using)
Overall, great hotel(and great service) if you can get a deluxe room at reasonable price.
eh...just ok. some staff were nice. some were rude. room was typical hilton-standard style...comfortable but bland. pool was great. location can't be beat.
Very Nice Hotel
Our family had a very nice stay here in July. The hotel staff was very helpful with local attractions and accomodating our needs. The location is very near to a subway stop that allowed us to spend all of our time in Boston walking around the city seeing the sites.
Very nice if you have hilton status
I stayed for a couple of weeks in summer of 2002. The locating is pretty good and I always found the hotel to be worth the money. There was mainly because of the way they treated me as a Hilton Diamond member. I was always upgraded to one of the corner rooms which have amazing views of Boston with large panoramic windows and a very interesting layout. The free breakfast (again, due to my status) was served in the restaurant downstairs and was very nice. The restaurant was not that good for dinner though. Had I gotten a normal room and no free breakfast, I would rate this at average.
Best value in Beantown
I have travelled to Boston a number of times and stayed at many of the Boston proper hotels and have found Hilton Boston Back Bay to be the best value of all the 3 to 4 star hotels. On my most recent visit we had an upgraded corner room with a private balcony. The room was quite large and very comfortable and since the room was not fronting on a busy Boston street it was very quiet at night. My only complaints would be that the indoor pool is somewhat of a disappointment (although my 10 year old didn't have any complaints), and they no longer include a complementary continental breakfast. I would have to say that unless one of the other hotels come up with a better package that I will continue to stay here.
My girlfriend Wendy and I stayed here when she came to visit me from Seattle. It was a wonderful experience. The hotel has the best accomodations..Thanks

... of tea!!). Next was historic Faneuil Hall which is still in use and was infact used this morning to nationalise some new Americans. Outside we saw some street performers that we had seen in New York back in 2012. What a coincidence?? Next we walked to Paul Revere's house, the original house and one of the very few timber houses of that time still standing. From there is was back on the bus and a slow trundle through peak hour traffic to a stop closer to ...

So the rest of my day. I can't remember where I left off, other than the fact I was on the train. I'm going to start from my arrival into Boston South Station. I was greeted by a sort of makeshift bookstore, which made me smile. I made my way straight out front and found a map. I decided to take Summer Street and then Winter Street (yes one flows into the other) and ...

The last of their party was named Lawrence, and he was, quite obviously, from Scotland. By 'quite obviously', I mean that he was wearing a Scottish woolen cap (I believe it is called a glengarry, but don't quote me on that) and a t-shirt that said Scotland on it.
Also, he kept calling me 'lass'. I don't think I've felt ...
... First stop was the duck tour. Not the cute, isn't it adorable kind of duck rather the amphibious vehicle type of duck. It took us around the harbour explaining the history of Boston and how much of it is built on reclaimed land...interesting. As the tour came to an end and our guide and captain thanked us and hoped we had enjoyed the tour they reminded us of their names but said if we hadn't enjoyed it their names were something or other else, ah too funny those ...
