      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 …

On Tuesday the only reason I left my building was to go outside and play. Look at my Facebook for pictures, the snow is up to my knees which was incredible. I made my friends watch Frozen and Fargo, both great snowy movies, and we also watched Silver Linings Playbook together. And now it's Thursday and I really only have a couple hours at ...

      Walking the freedom trail was an interesting thing to do. It's a route paved in red brick around the city that takes you to historical sites from the American Revolution like meeting houses, churches, statues and a big old ship called the USS Constitution. ...

      ... in New England, this beating the life of a small tenancy at best back in England. The colonists arrived late after delays and 50% perished in the harsh winter of 1620. They strayed from target due to various setbacks. They had intended to land south of Cape Cod but could not sail around it. They found Cape Cod unsuitable. Plymouth was OK but Boston with a large natural harbour would have been better as was proved later. It was difficult to make money by the trade generated and so ...

      Freedom Trail

      A travel blog entry by gennid on May 27, 2014

      Today we explored the Freedom Trail. Starting at the Boston Common we purchased a book that explained the important places and their significance to that era. We also took time to look at some of the other features of the Boston Common, like the Frog Pond which is an ice skating rink in winter...you can't swim in it. The trail is really easy to follow as there is a red line linking one ...
