    Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Boston - Downtown

    Rip Off


    I booked this hotel because of the good reviews it had. When I got off the elevator on the 3rd floor, the hallway reeked of smoke. When I opened the door to my room it reeked of smoke. Since I had a confirmation for a non smoking room, I went back down to the desk and demanded a non smoking room. The guy at the desk could've cared less- "the hotel is sold out" "that is the last room". I argued my point with him and he took off $40 of my bill- I ended up sleeping with the window open and it was 23 degrees out! The second thing is, there is no food available if you check in after 10pm so eat before you go!! I was very disappointed in this hotel and would not return.



    Great location, two minute walk to New England Medical Centre T stop, and then three stops from the centre of Boston. Rooms are large and comfortable. Would recommend this hotel to anyone, say hello to Bill at the bar !!

    Overall satisfaction...


    Great location in the theater district, easy access to the subway, reasonably priced. Rooms are well maintained, service is friendly, plenty of things around the hotel within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.



    Just back from Boston, (Oct 2003)Stayed in the Doubletree Downtown. Great hotel, Great location beside the T station. Rooms were very clean and enough room for 4 of us. We got a great rate through Expedia.Vines Cafe is very nice for breakfast and prices are reasonable. Staff were friendly and helpful. TIP:buy a phone card, as with all hotels , rates to ring Ireland are very dear !! Would definitely stay here again

    Great hotel to tour Boston


    My wife and I spent a few days touring Boston in October. The Doubletree Downtown provided a great location. It's just a short walk to the Boston Common and historic areas. There are also many great restaurants close with many different types of food. The room was large and very comfortable and the staff was pleasant and helpful-the concierge especially helpful.

    Good location, easy access


    Very good location, just steps away from the subway, Chinatown, and Boston Garden. Our room had an odd layout (it was a corner unit), but was adequate. The bathroom was huge and in good condition. The hotel staff was generally pleasant and the Vines cafe employees really stood out. Our only quibble is the USD $3.00 / day charge for the in-room safe. Otherwise, quite a bargain.

    Great Location/ Comfortable home from Home


    My wife and I stopped at the Doubletree in October. The staff were very friendly without being overbearing and the hotel location was perfect to see the sights in Boston.I would recoomend this hotel to anyone thinking of visiting Boston.

    Loved Doubletree Downtown Boston


    Stayed here in July, excellent accommodation, spacious, very clean and in a great location just beside the subway and very near the common and downtown. really good price too, i paid less that 100$ per night and vines cafe in the hotel is very good and very reasonable for breakfast.

    Doubletree Downtown is the best!


    My 10-year-old granddaughter and I recently made our second trip to Boston. Boston is a great place to visit and our stays were made even more enjoyable by the accomodations at the Downtown Doubletree. It is in a great location next to the theater district and Chinatown, with a subway entrance next door and good restaurants and Boston Common within walking distance. Wonderful clean quiet well-appointed rooms, great restaurant, room service, bar, very efficient and friendly staff--all made Boston one of our favorite vacation sites. When we return to Boston we will definitely be staying at the Downtown Doubletree!

    Not kid friendly


    They say they have a pool, but it is at the YMCA and not at the hotel, and the times kids can swim are only for an hour to two hours a day...advise go against staying here if you have any desire to swim...very misleading

    Leave Boston for Reykjavik. Arrive there 5 am Wednesday the 5th. Flew out of Boston on time on Icelandic Air. Icelandic, it turns out does not serve you food. You have to buy a meal or snack. They did serve complementary juice, coffee and soft drinks early in flight. However they did not even serve complementary coffee prior to our landing. Talked to a couple that flew Icelandic direct to Iceland from Seattle and their service was the same as ...

    We decided to walk around and find a restaurant to eat dinner and settled on a little seafood place right in the marketplace. I can't remember the name but I do remember passing a place called *****. Everybody had white ...

The textures of the rice cake contrasted with the crisp outside and soft interior of the tofu was really interesting. The escarole included in the dish gave it a great bitter bite as well. The ...

    7. How does anything get done? Italians go to work in the morning, and knock off by 2. They come back at 4 or 5, then leave work for passagiata time, better known by me as gelato hour. When exactly does anything get done? Where do they work? What is going on?

    ... before the gates opened they cleared Yawkey Way before readmitting everyone. This allows for anyone without a ticket to at least have a chance to partake in the pre-game fun if they get there early enough. I made my stop at the team store and managed to keep my spending in check pretty well. After that it was finally time to enter the park.

    The concourse had a feel similar to Wrigley but not nearly as tight. Once I found my way ...
