      Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Boston - Downtown

      Rip Off

      from

      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.

      Cool

      from

      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...

      from

      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.

      Doubletree

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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!

      from

      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

      from

      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

      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 …

      The End of the Semester

      A travel blog entry by madisonmcd on Dec 03, 2014

      Hello everyone! It has been awhile, I know. Oops. So much is going on and I always thought it would be much easier to write all of it down, but nothing slows down ever.

      I have officially finished class for my first semester. It is incredibly weird because it has all gone so fast. After only three months, so much has changed in my life and here I am, nearing the end of the first of possibly only 6 semesters of my college career. I have been very successful here and ...

      ... good luck but is the nightly target of "******* competitions" and is cleaned up daily. This was explained as we all watched a guy and his wife poising for a selfie with hand on the shiny boot. Over to Quincy Markets for coffee and a nice little Greek thingy and of course, shopping, home on the Green Line, E trainey trammy thing which with quite a bit of complaining, goes round really sharp corners, a quick walk through the weather and 'home'. Ah, what a day we ...

      ... excellent location. After a good nights sleep we arose early the next morning set for some exploring of Boston. We set off from the hotel walking along the pretty streets (lots of trees and greenery), we were walking through one of Boston's better neighbourhoods: Back Bay. After a 30 min walk we found ourselves at the entrance to a very pretty parks known as Boston public garden. It borders the more famous Boston Common a magnificent ...

      ... The song “My Country 'Tis of Thee” was first sang on the steps of Park Street Church.  As we continued along the Freedom Trail Tour George took us to Granary Burial Grounds.  It is the third oldest grave yard in the United States and was established in 1660.  With the invention of a lawn mower, the tombstones were all moved into parallel lines making it a cemetery and no longer a graveyard.  There is a total of 12,000-13,000 people buried ...
