      Historical Traveler Reviews Millennium Bostonian Hotel

      Definitely Would Stay Here Again

      from

      Stayed at the Millennium Bostonian for 3 nights in early October. Got a great rate ($116) a night on Hotwire. Thoroughly enjoyed this hotel......from it's close proximity to Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market, the subway system, the cozy Atrium Lounge and it's warmth. Their bed was comfortable (as were the pillows). The bathroom was well lit with an oval bathtub (very nice). The only thing that could have been different was that I wish they would install a new carpet in the room.....yes, there were stains. Otherwise, the stay was pleasant, the staff were friendly.....I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again in the future.

      Excellent Experience

      from

      My stay at the Bostonian was fabulous. Each staff member I encountered was warm, friendly and knowledgable. The Bostonian has a lot of charm and great character. Our friend's room was different from ours, yet also nice and cozy.

      The Bostonian is in a perfect downtown location, in the middle of everything! Conceirge staff directed us well and gave a nice choice of dinner recommendations.

      It was very nice to stay at a classic hotel, a very unique experience.

      Not worth the money!

      from

      Our recent trip to Boston was a gift from my boss for 10 years of work.

      He booked the room based on a previous stay several years ago.

      Aparently he remembered it in better shape than it was. At first glance from the lobby, we thought this would be a great place to stay. After all, the location was perfect. When we got off of the elevator we were overwhelmed by some horrible stinch and the carpet had ripples in it like a rug that needed straightening. Our room was not what we expected. The carpet was stained. The furniture had stains. The wallpaper was peeling off of the wall. There was hair on the bedspread that was not ours. We had a view of Faneuil Hall which was great the first night, the novelty of it. It was neat to walk out on the balcony to see the excitement. The next couple of nights was not so neat as the partying, sirens and honking drowned out any sense of peace. We also noticed as we were walking back to the hotel that a room a couple of doors down had plywood for doors overlooking the Faneuil Hall. Needless to say we were not impressed and were very upset for my boss at having to pay $320! a night for something that should have cost 59.99! We would highly recommend NOT staying here unless you would like your wallet cleaned out for something that could be compared to Motel 6.

      Great Location, but Pricey

      from

      The staff was nice to us after a shaky check-in in which one of our reservations was misplaced. The bell hop and valet were friendly. Parking is expensive. The location is GREAT! However, the standard room is average to small in size when compared to price. The bed was harder than I would like. The bathroom was large and nice. I didnt have a balcony. I have stayed in several 4 star hotels and this one was just not on the same level as the others. I am not complaining about it, just not recommending it either unless location is your number one priority.

      Stay Away

      from

      This hotel was bad in so many ways. With taxes included, we paid $200/night for this hotel and I am getting ready to write a letter to hotel management to let them know how disappointed we were. First of all, the hotel reeks of cigarettes and cigars (with stained curtains to prove it). The city recently banned smoking in bars and restaurants but apparently the hotel hasn't received the memo yet since there is a cloud of smoke coming from their bar every night. The single pane windows don't mask the noise coming from the outside every night. Please remember that this hotel is in front of party central and you will not get any sleep during your stay. With a four year old in tow, we weren't exactly able to join in on the partying and the honking, screaming and sirens were just plain annoying. I had an upgrade coupon for a room. The front desk attendant who had a scowl on her face during the whole check in process upgraded me from a grand to a superior. I asked what the difference was and she mentioned that the superior had a view of Faneuil Hall. Cool - ok. We check in and I had to call down to double check if she had checked us into the wrong room. You could maybe see Faneuil Hall if you stuck your head out of the window and strained it in an awkward position. Other than that, I mostly saw the alleyway. Speaking of unpleasant hotel personnel, everytime we walked by the concierge desk and he happened to be there (they did not have regular hours), I overheard him complaining about how much work he had and how tired he was. The fitness center was just a hotel room that just happend to have ancient exercise equipment in it. The treadmills and gym equipment must have been from the 1970's and looked unsafe to even touch.I can keep going on but I'll stop now. This hotel is MAYBE worth $75/night, definitely NOT the $200 that we paid.

      Humiliation

      from

      I stayed at the Bostonian for 2 nights in the summer of 2002. I payed 250$/night before tax. I thought I would be assured an elegant and comfortable room. Instead, I was put in a room which had no real windows - instead it had small openings near the ceiling. If you opened them, you were confronted by something very noisy - some part of the machinery of the hotel. Can't say what it was, because I couldn't see it! In short, I was confined to a basement-like prison-type room for 250$ a night. Maybe they thought I wasn't an important guest. I don't know. I was felt cheated and humiliated.

      Not worth the money at all

      from

      I was not thrilled when we checked into our room. We had paid an additional fee to be in the Classic King room with French doors opening up to the balcony with views of Quincy mkt/F.Hall but instead we got a room with a queen size bed and no balcony. After we called and asked to be moved to another room, they put us in a room that had all that they promissed but with a view of garbage all over the street and if strained your neck to your right, you got a slight view of quincy mkt. By the way, I didn't realize balconies were this small-was it a joke?

      We have stayed all over in Europe, Asia & North America for less money and have got much better service(&room) than this. The room did not come with breakfast and there wasn't even a coffee maker in the room. Oh, of course, you had to pay for parking which they don't conveniently tell you until you get there.

      One thing for sure is that I will never go back there and will never recommend this hotel.

      Fantastic stay

      from

      Recently, I had to catch an early flight from Logan airport and I decided to stay at the Bostonian Hotel. I was greeted by the doorman and the bellman with a welcome back. It has been over two years since I had stayed there. Check-in was done by the nicest person. She asked if she could help me with anything and you could tell that she meant it.

      Just when I thought things could not get any better, I saw my room with the fireplace. Wow!!

      The best part of the night was that I received the service of a truly five diamond hotel for a significantly lower rate.

      I will definitely stay there again.

      Not worth the money

      from

      While the hotel may be elegant and lovely and the service accomadating, the rooms are small and overpriced. The "balcony" is a large open window that two people can barely stand on together to look out. While the rooms may have a nice decor, for the price they are extremely small. I've stayed at other high priced hotels and would pay the same price for a room twice the size. To top off the stay... if you plan on driving and parking your car with their valet, be warned that you will be charged an additional fee for parking. Now while this may be their fee, note that not one person informed us prior to checking the car with valet that we would be charged an additional fee, even as paying guests. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

      Millenium Bostonian

      from

      This is a truly elegant hotel. The room was lovely, immaculate, and comfortable and the location is quite convenient. Staff were extremely pleasant and generously offered quick use of their office computer for checking business emails. Breakfast in the Seasons restaurant, while pricey, was delicious, with excellent service. I've already highly recommended this hotel to colleagues and will certainly stay here again.

      ... rich and famous I can afford one of the multimillion dollar apartments... Sunday was a day full of exploration. We did the Old Town Trolley Tour which allowed us to hop on and off the bus, going to all the different sights of the city. Cambridge, Back Bay, everything. We ate a wonderful lunch at Legal Sea Food and went on an awesome boat tour of the Boston Harbor. I hadn't done anything like that before and we lucked out on such a beautiful day. Such a great weekend with both ...

      Up at 7. Had breakfast (very good one, as in all the places we had been to on this trip) and got to the airport before 9. It took a while to go through the security line but we got to our gate with plenty of time to spare. Our UA flight was at 11 something and it took off on schedule. Smooth ride, with even a hot meal and then a warm breakfast. 8 hours later, we landed in Newark.

      Newark Customs now had new Kiosks for passport check. That's something new! After ...

      I was going to start with 'Here I go again on my own' but I’m pretty sure I started the last blog that way. I guess I should think of something new. Maybe "Have car, have credit card, will travel."
