A day on the bus

Monday involved quite a bit of travelling and the sit down was needed after the shock of being told that our cases were going to be collected at 6.30am! We joined the other 42 sleepy people In our party and spent the morning touring New York in the bus. We travelled uptown to see the performing arts centres, Central Park and Columbus Circle before …

Spreadsheets & Receipts: A Financial Review

... random adventures like Sandboarding. I'm extremely happy I took advantage of these opportunities, but it does mean that you're going to pay for them.These are some of the major areas that pushed my budget over the limits. I will also say that my own personal projections might have been overly frugal, not being realistic estimates for the day-to-day costs I would be incurring. Instead of rehashing what I mention above, here is ...

Meeting up with the Fleetwoods

... of the tour was when we were in the press box and the guide told us that many movies had been shot at the ground one of which was Moneyball. Apparently Brad Pitt had sat in one of the seats in the middle of the front row which just happened to be where we were sitting, OMG! As the tour ended we found ourselves on the opposite side of the field looking back towards the batters mound and the ground seemed much larger. It was then I realised, I would never hit a ...

The trolley soon arrived and returned us to our hotel - after showing us several historical sites that included cemeteries, called burying grounds, where several famous early Americans, such as Benjamin Franklin, were interred. For dinner we decided to try the much referred Legal Sea Foods, which was located just a short walk from the hotel on Long Wharf in Boston Harbor. After a not short wait (during which time ...

THE BOSTON TEA PARTY

... seaside resort really – not the arcades though although it did have a Casino! It had an up-market little Town centre that was certainly worth a browse, but only giant ice creams were purchased as it was expensive. Next day was the delights of Boston. This was a Sunday, Fathers Day in fact and we were able to park near the Harbour. We walked through Christopher Columbus Park and found a tour of the City we liked the look of – and excellent it ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Boston Brookline

    Enjoyed our stay at your hotel

    from

    We enjoyed our night's stay at your hotel. The location was great for catching the T to get to a Red Sox game and Hard Rock Cafe for dinner. We found the room to be clean and inviting. My sons really enjoyed a dip in the indoor pool. I liked the interior layout which resembled a courtyard.

    We will be back!

    Many problems

    from

    I debated whether to give one star or not, but it did provide the bare essentials. And neither was noise a problem.

    Are we talking about the same hotel?

    from

    My husband and I just spent Saturday night June 11 at the Holiday Inn Brookline. We were in Room 189 which is right next to the hotel jacuzzi and workout room. We had a large window with a flower box that while it didn't have a real view was not terrible.

    Like a motel with a roof

    from

    I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Brookline for a couple of nights because it is close to the Longwood medical area where I had a conference, but other than the proximity to Longwood, there is no other reason I would recommend anyone staying there. The rooms are musty, the beds uncomfortable (pillows are worse), and the only 'window' faces an inner courtyard that is dark, and even mustier than the room itself. They put guests in rooms right next to the pool, which made the whole place smell like chlorine. Furthermore, they began construction as early as 8 am. Overall, I found that it was a very strange hotel, more like a motel really with a roof...design-wise it was bizarre and uninviting. It may be a bit less expensive than other hotels in the area, but next time I would pay a little extra for a lot more comfort.

    Cheap, Good Location

    from

    I booked the hotel through Priceline for about $55 a night, which is really cheap for Boston. Although located in Brookline, it is easy to get to Boston since the Green line runs right in front of the Hotel. The fenway area of Boston is within walking distance as well.

    The hotel itself is weird, many of the rooms dont have windows, and the swimming pool gives a chlorine smell in the main building.

    However, for those travelers who need a place to sleep while conducting buisness in Boston, I recommend the Holiday Inn at Brookline because the room is clean, comfortable, and the bathroom is clean.

    Not my best hotel experience

    from

    The drama with this hotel started before I even arrived. I called to book a conference rate room and was told that the block reserved by the conference had already been filled. But I was allowed to use my AAA card discount for a nonsmoking room and offered a chance to sign up for a Holiday Inn Member Rewards Club. Once I arrived in Boston I went straight to the hotel. Since it was before 3pm, the person at the front desk had to check to make sure my room was clean. He assured me that it was and I went to my room. IT WAS A SMOKING ROOM!!! I went back to the front desk to be moved and was told that they were overbooked and could not offer me another space. I called the conference organizer and she was outraged that I did not get the conference rate. They would not change the rate they charged me and I witnessed them telling other conference members that they did not have rooms for them. Only after a huge arguement did they offer then a room at a sister hotel at the same rate at which they made their reservation. I visited some people with non-smoking rooms had rooms that smelled just as bad as mine! There were several other problems such as cracked walls, chipping plaster from the ceilings and peeling paint on the walls. The only thing that made the hotel worthwhile was the excellent food, the expensive but well made drinks at the bar, and it was very close to a stop for the subway or "T". I would not choose to stay at this hotel again.

    Dingy halls and windowless rooms

    from

    After staying at this hotel for 6 nites I must say I wouldn't go back. No window in our room and the hall is dingy and dark....they should only use the new section of the hotel and forget the rooms by the pool...that is where I was stuck....asked for a room for handicapped and they where unable to fill my request ..parking garage was terrible to get in and out of....

    needless to say if I didn't need to be near the local hospital I would I checked out...

    Conveniant and clean

    from

    Great location on the T, room (food) service closed early but probably just a slack employee. Clean, friendly and nice for walking and exploring beautiful old buildings. Parking costs $15.00

    Very Nice Hotel

    from

    Enjoyed the Holiday Inn Brookline very much. The hotel is located on the T which made getting in and out of the city very easy. We found it more affordable than staying downtown.

    Felt like I was staying in a cave!

    from

    We stayed here for one night while visiting some friends in Brookline.

    It was one of the oddest hotels I've ever stayed at. The rooms had no windows to the outside, just to the inside courtyard, which featured a pool. The whole place smelled like chlorine and it was dark, dark, dark.
