    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 …

    Saba's Beacon Hill Photowalk

    When I was looking for something to do on my free day -alone- in Boston before I meet up with my group, I thought about a food tour. However, a lot of the reviews seemed to suggest that numbers were few and I really didn't want to be stuck on my own with a tour guide -I'm not talkative enough for that! Anyway, I stumbled across a lady who does photowalks around various neighbourhoods ...

    ... canceled my appt in Chicago and enjoyed most of the rest of my time with family in WI.

    I ended up going to one of the free clinics in WI, mostly just to have that part completed and not have to worry about it once I got back to beaurocratic hell, Boston. (Looking back, Im surely glad I did. Google only produced one free clinic and there are likely WAY more people in this area needing free care than throughout WI) With no appt, I expected spending my entire evening ...

    ... Upon clearing LAX I stopped by my usual haunt “Euro Caffe” in Beverly Hills where I go to get the last good coffee I expect to have for the next three weeks. This is my ritual. I returned to LAX shortly thereafter, all caffeinated and borderline friendly. I set out for the airport yesterday (????) confident in the knowledge I had
    forgotten something very important. I’ve no doubt I’ll ...

    ... North Church....here comes today's piece of trivia for you! Did you know that this was where two lanterns were displayed in the steeple to let the americans know the 'english were coming by sea' back in 1775? Put that one in the memory banks..and read the Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem 'Paul Revere's Ride'. More on Paul Revere tomorrow. Well, more good luck than by good planning, we seem to have landed right smack in the middle of Boston's Little ...
