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

... Let me tell you, it was tough, tough work but the views over the city were breathtaking. It was worth it. Now, all we had to do afterwards was to walk back down the spiral staircases without falling. At the bottom, our legs felt like jelly, so we laid in the grass to recover. We had nearly finished the freedom trail, and we came to the agreement that we needed to find a pub once we finished for a well earned drink. We headed to our last landmark which was along ...
... I would catch the "travel bug" and come back a changed person. Before my time abroad, I wasn't even comfortable calling people I didn't know on the phone and abroad I was thrown into foreign houses with people who I have never met forcing conversation and avoiding awkwardness. I became a much more confident person and am truly independent. Abroad has taught me how to cook, how to communicate with people who share a complete different background, how to travel ...
The flight was uneventful and we arrived early in Boston. We realized that we were early because we had to wait on the tarmac to get to our gate.
We arrived at about 4 on a Friday afternoon; rented a small Prius C; set up our gps; and set out for Needham in Friday evening traffic! It was confusing with cars all over the place and the GPS showing us going in one direction and then another that Skip made a mistake and ...
... from this security procedure. By this time it was raining steadily. Armed with umbrellas we went out to get the feel of the town. It is like the Gold Coast on steroids. The main area consists of a T-junction. The top of the 'T' is a street lined with souvenir shops and food outlets, both fast food and restaurants. The strip down to Queen Victoria Park and the falls, Clifton Hill, is like one giant arcarde. There are shooting ...
... was craving- Clam Chowder. This nectar is amazing and helped recharge us for our final day in Boston which we wanted to use exploring the iconic Harvard University Campus. Harvard was beautiful however as school was out it was a little empty but the buildings and the natural history museum were awesome (yes I've started using Americanisms). We then set off to the train station- next stop ...
