We have Debbie with us on her 1st College Road Trip, and our 1st stop is Boston College. This is a beautiful campus. Still, there are some complaints from the crowd and I insisted on walking most of it. The girls made believe they were not interested in the Statue of Doug Flutie outside of Alumni Stadium, but I knew better. Our walking tour was cut …
We arrived in Boston on Nov. 10 at around 7 in the evening. Travel time was almost 24 hours since we left Manila at 8pm on Nov. 10 and had to wait in Tokyo for 2 hours there. Here is a photo of me in Tokyo airport. The temperature in Boston was a lot cooler than I expected. We checked in at Marriott Newton-Boston Hotel which is actually outside of …
... I hope my flight to Manchester goes well too, even though I received an email this morning saying a different airline will be flying us because British airways was having a problem, but at least they found it early on and now there hopefully won't be any further problems or delays. I guess I will just have to wait and see what happens.

Historical Traveler Reviews Boston Marriott Newton
My Wife and I stayed 2 nights here . I'm a light sleeper and requested a quiet room - no complaints in that area!
Typical Marriott Quality
We stayed here on Amex points (it was the closest Marriott to downtown Boston eligible for a redemption).
The place was consistent with all other large Marriotts we've stayed at: clean, comfortable rooms, nice pool, courteous and helpful employees, and a wonderful breakfast buffet.
The location turned out well, also, as we were 5 minutes away from a transit (the "T") station, and from there it was about a 30-minute ride to downtown.
We stayed 2 nights mid-July and would definitely return.
Nice hotel outside of Boston
The rooms were a little small, but the service was good (comparable to your normal Marriott). The food was pretty good as well. The bar area was nice with a pretty good crowd on most occasions.
I stayed at this hotel for 3 months and was satisfied.
I stayed here for 2 nights. The food is good, and that is about all I can say, standard Marriott menu. I usually stay at Marriotts so I expected more. This hotel is old though and it shows its age.
Clean, Quiet and good breakfast
We stayed at this hotel for two nights to attend a graduation and found it to be clean and quiet. The breakfast (which was not included in the price of the room) was very good ,especially the fresh fruit. The service was excellent for breakfast. The front desk service was efficient and very polite. Our sheets and towels were clean but it seems that Marriott could do better in having better quality linens in their hotels. The hotel is not in downtown Boston area but if you want it quiet but still near route 95 for your traveling needs, this hotel will fill the requirements.
WORST HOTEL in my hotel experiences!!!
I had to stay at this hotel for a friend's wedding. The sheets smelled like they hadn't been washed, sort of had that old water smell. We didn't notice it when we first went to sleep because we were so tired, but the smell actually woke me up in the middle of the night. I complained to the front desk and told them to please change the sheets, but they still smelled the same the second night.
Additionally, the front desk kept calling us at 2AM, 3AM and 4AM, mistaking us for other people's wake up calls. We never got an apology, either. Their service and professionalism were just atrocious. I would NEVER stay there again.
I made reservations for my boss & his family for his daughter's graduation. I have not stayed here, but the after the people I have dealt with, I feel compelled to write a review. First, when I called the hotel to add the traveler's Mariott Rewards number to the reservations, they booked a room at a Marriott in Hilton Head, SC. The hotel did call to let me know they made the mistake, but the reservation was not canceled. Only when I got online to view the reservations, was I able to cancel the SC one. If I would not have done so, my boss would have been charged for a room in a different state that he did not even book. Another thing is transportation. I called the concierge to get a limo for the family. She called me back & let me know she had the transportation lined up. After I asked her for the contact info for the limo company, I called the company to find out that a van, not a limo had been reserved for us. When I asked the concierge about this, she said that she thought a van would be fine, and it was a very nice van. I tried to explain that's not what I had requested at all! I make a lot of travel plans for my company & I have never EVER dealt with a Marriott like this.
Will never stay at this hotel again. We had stayed here several times in the course of a year. During one stay, we arrived back at the room at 6PM after being out all day, and the room was not made up. They finally came and made up the room, but had no towels. They promised us towels later. When we got back to the room at 9PM, there were still no clean towels. Our subsequent stay was the straw that brike the camel's back. We had booked our stay 6 months prior for a non-smoking room, and we checked into at 10:30 PM, and after a long wait in line, we were told they had overbooked and we'd have to stay in a smoking room. After we ranted and raved for about 30 min, they magically discovered a non-smoking room on their 'elite' floor (btw the room was no different than a double on any other floor). We were lucky I suppose, because while we had lost our 'non-smoking' reservation, other guests came to find out that they had no reservation at all. Another sneaky thing that we found at the hotel is that while they claim to have free transportation to a local college, this doesnt apply during parents weekend when they charge a fee!!
Nice rooms, indoor pool, good restaurant - but not much else in the immediate vicinity
Great hotel, great location, The room was spotless. Nothing but good things to say about the hotel. My wife and I stayed here for 2 nites while attending a few Red Sox games at Fenway. The only drawback is that its a $35.00 cab fare to go 8 miles to the park.
Otherwise its a quiet easy to get to hotel, definitely advise to stay here. All of the staff is courteous and helpful.
