At the airport....early as usual! I was chosen for the "you don't have to take off your shoes" security check....woohoo! Now we wait.... Flight delayed to check a worn tire....had to wake up the mechanic and call him in! But we weren't too badly delayed (and had a big layover in Atlanta so I wasn't worried. Lunch, then on to Boston! Walked 2 miles …
... such fabled items around their campus. Alas, it was to be another hour of walking into shops and simply feeling our blood sugar rise before walking out again. After hearing murmurings of a farmers market the day before, we then ventured to the other side of Boston, only to discover we had missed closing time by minutes. Instead of further searching, a dinner in Quincy Market was in order. After several days on the go, a relaxed day was needed. We visited ...

... I therefore only looked on hearing the gasps of the people who actually saw the jump! During our visit we saw humpback whales and longback whales. Taysia explained that fully grown whales usually travel in solitude but may sometimes join up to feed but usually only in groups of two or three. Taysia herself said the largest group of whales she had seen together was about 8. On our visit we saw at one point a group of 10-12 whales! My friend, Robert, had told me that the BBC ...
... again in Boston. It makes sense; this city was step one of permanent Anglophone settlement of what would become the United States. And it is now the first city in the journey of one Russian traveler and his American guide trying to make sense of this large and confusing landmass. As soon as Pavel shakes the long and boring flight from Moscow out of his bones, we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Boston - Downtown
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 !!
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
