Embassy Suites Boston Logan Airport
Travel Blogs from Boston
Last night was the best sleep that I had had in a long time. We arose around 7.00am, had "Bird's Nest" (again!) and set off to Boston around 8.15am
We arrived in Boston about two hours later. Our first task was to drop off the car. I also had a couple of queries about the car hire which I was not looking forward to “ …
We finally have an early night. The hotel is awesome … not like the other hotels.

... so, so cold and I did not understand the rules fully! It is very similar to rounders though but with 9 innings. Some lady and her very drunk boyfriend explained the rules to me so how accurate they were is slightly dubious! It was a great atmosphere and the fans were hilarious! I was fairly sure that my toes were blue and about to drop off by the end of the game though! I legged it out of the stadium at the end of the game and pretty much jogged/sped-walked the whole way back to the ...
... because the colonists refused to unload it because they would be taxed. They wanted it shipped back to England but the King refused the ships returning. Colonists decided to take matters into their own hands and dressed up like Mohawk Indians and dumped the tea into the Charles River. We were able to go on to an exact replica of the Eleanor where we got to dump tea into the harbor. We also got to see a second replica called the Beaver. This ...
... with Margaret and Ester, two members of the Boston College staff who are responsible for the international students, we managed to create a great event. Through different kinds of social media and advertising we stimulated as many friends to stop by and to join us in the celebration of the Dutch national holiday. Only one simple rule applied: be as orange as you can possible be! We had decorated one of the dining halls and transformed it ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Boston Logan Airport
Worst possible management: after the valet scrapped and scratched our car and the assistant manager told us to expect the problem would be taken care of later that day, it tooks ten months--47 phone calls, registered letter and emails--before being resolved; complaining to company's customer service got the same silent treatment. Even their insurance rep wanted advice on how to get Embassy Suites to return a call. Hard to believe the hotel belongs to Hilton.
This property is decent on the inside, but in an awful location. We have never stayed in a hotel in a more depressed part of town. We realize that it is near an airport, but when the rental car lots are the nice things to look at, you know you're in trouble. The hotel had an event in the banquet room that was so loud, we could hear the music in our room on the 3rd floor. We complained to unresponsive front desk staff whose only consulation to us was that the party would be over by 11:00pm (we had to hear the music for 3 hours). To be fair, the rooms were spacious and clean and the free breakfast buffet a nice touch. Not terribly inconvenient for sight-seeing, just a shuttle ride through the airport and two T stops to downtown. We recommend that women don't travel alone in this area. However, the shuttle is free and the drivers were nice.
Nice But Too Expensive
I stayed at the Logan Airport Embassy last month. It was very nice but I thought if was too expensive. I usually stay at the Logan Airport Hampton because they have they same shuttle service and I can still get my Hilton Honor points but they were sold out. I also found the parking somewhat of a hassle.
Much better than that Hiatt and Holiday In/Hiltonn
Ive stayed at the other two hotels, they dont compare. one has jets flying at my windows, scared me outta my boxers! Plus they are across from some vacuum airhandler. The other is under the udnerpass and I felt like i was sleeping in a garage box. got lost in their cavernous slanted lobby. I loved the Van drivers and staff at embassy suites logan and feel that they deserve my company, IBM , business for the future. PLease spread the word.PS> are there really hotels outside of the airport claiming to be in it?
New hotel, great staff, safe location adn loved IT
I loved it there...the other two hotels at the airport are cold and I made a permanent move to this hotel. great van drivers, friendly safe walk to the subway, and yes, my sister and grandmother walk it, with a walker to boot...staff is warm and outgoing and now my home base in Boston. coming from FL, I know what a safe area and hotel are and this is it baby!
Definately a nice hotel. Its very new. I have to disagree with the other reviewers about the decor...I loved it! It's retro-chic...blues and yellows in the rooms. We had a room with a great view of the downtown skyline, and I wasn't bothered by the noise from the airport.
Never stay again
The hotel was awful. It needs updated and redecorated badly. The carpet in the room had holes in it, the decore was 1950s, the toilet was plugged and it took over an hour to get someone to bring a plunger and plunge. The toilet never did get unplugged by plunging, but the serviceman left any way. We had to call him back and he had to use a drain snake to unclog it. Our non smoking room reeked of smoke. There is only one option to park and that is valet, and they charge heavily for it. All in all a bad experience.
Outstanding experience & service
My wife & I stayed here for one night as we concluded a trip to Boston, Cape Cod, and Newport. The staff was outstanding (especially the shuttle drivers), the room was well designed and spotlessly clean, breakfast was perfectly adequate and plentiful. This is a fairly new property, so the earlier poor reviews may be the result of a new staff learning proper service (just a guess). The complimentary shuttle service to/from the subway means that all of Boston (especially the great North End restaurants) are only a few minutes and a $1.00 train ride away. This is a perfect location for those with early-morning flights.
Embassy Suites @ Logan needs improvement
The hotel itself is okay, but the service is poor. Every day we had to call the front desk to ask for washcloths! When we wanted to eat dinner at the hotel restaurant, we were asked to wait 10-15 minutes to be seated, even though there were many empty tables, because they did not have enough servers. During the breakfast rush, they ran out of milk completely, and said there was none left anywhere in the hotel. It seems like the staff is surprised by the fact that there are people staying there. We would not stay here again.
I would never stay there again, even though the rate was only $99 a night for a one bedroom suite. It is close to the airport, and they do provide a shuttle to/from the airport. The front desk was not helpful and unfriendly. We asked for a rollaway when we were checking in (in fact, we requested for one at the time of the reservation), we did not receive one. An hour later, we called down to the front desk to ask where it was, they said they were out (you think they would call to let us know!). They offered us to switch room to one that had 2 double beds (instead of 1 queen in the bedroom), since there were 2 adults and 2 teenagers in our family. We declined. We asked for extra towels, we never received any, and never got a call back either. We asked for a wakeup call, but when we woke up early, we called to cancel the call (so that the call would not wake up the kids), they never cancelled the call.
