... about it that makes it my favorite (I may be a bit biased) so far. Sorry Petco Park, you had a good run.
The game was not as rewarding as the stadium. The Cubs pitcher Jake Arietta was dealing. after four innings he had a perfect game intact but a walk in the 5th killed that chance. He did however keep the no-hitter intact much longer. As the 7th inning came and went with still no Red Sox hits I began to feel torn. Coming into ...
Here we are in Boston after arriving late on Saturday afternoon from Buffalo. (Sorry Glenn. Buffalo Wings are still a mystery to me. We were only at the airport, but I did take a photo of a "bear" or something in Times Square advertising wings.)
This part of Boston at least is very unique, with its distinctive houses, all being two or three stories high. But more about that next time. This episode I ...
... copper by Paul Revere but turned green and became an eye sore. It was then covered in 23 karat gold leaf in 1874. During World War II people became paranoid that it was an easy spotting for a bombing attack and was painted black. Years later when they tried to remove the black paint they ruined the gold along with it. The State House dome was again plated in gold in 1997. Across from the state house is a statue of Robert Cloud Shaw that took 14 years ...
... the whole time we’d been in the States, and followed it with a movie. Another night we went to the minor league baseball and watched our local Lowell Spinners spank the other team with a score of one run for the whole game in the 10th innings. Riveting stuff, but I have to say that I actually really enjoyed it because it felt a bit like cricket, and with the ashes just starting up I was missing Australian sport. I ...
Today is the last day I am 25, a quarter of a century. Tomorrow is my golden birthday, because I turn 26 on the 26th of April. It's been a birthday that I’ve looked forward to all my life, and here it comes! Gold is my favorite color and sparkles are my favorite accessory to any outfit. But before I move on, let me give gratitude to the year of 25.
For almost a year, I’ve been volunteering through the karma yoga program ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Milner Hotel Boston
Super tiny rooms!
I stayed at the Milner in december 2003 for 2 nights. My room was extremely tiny and very basic. The bathroom was renovated recently I think and pretty clean, but also very small. Even the bed was small and looked cheap. The floors were sqeeky. I could hear my nextdoor neighbor walk tru his room. Walls are very thin, so I heard his TV as well. Heating made a lot of noise but hardly heated the room at full power. I had a view of a building very close by so the room was kinda dark. Overall, the room was depressing and I definately wouldn't recommend this hotel if you're looking for something nice. It was cheap though. I paid $65 a night (internet special). Next time I'm in Boston I'll pay a bit more for a nicer hotel.
My wife and I stayed at Milner in May. This is actually a pretty expensive hotel for what you get in return. The rooms are extremely small, not well-kept and noisy! The management is very unprofessional and they seem to go all the ways not to be helpful. The manager himself is an extremely rude person who hung up the phone on my wife over a billing query.
Take this advice and and DON'T stay at Milner, it's definitely not worth the money.
My wife and I stayed at the Milner in July. We found the staff to be extremely polite, friendly, and knowledgeble. The rooms we're clean, and a great value, at a low price compared to other Hotels in the area. The building has lots of character. I will return on any future visits to Boston. Good Job Milner Hotel.
I stayed at the Milner Hotel, Boston for four nights. The truth is that I didn't want to return to the hotel at nights and left it the first thing in the mornings because it was so terrible. My room looked like a cell. Thankfully, I had a bathroom. But the funny (???) thing was that the lavatory was outside of the bathroom (which means it was inside the room) and the closet was in the bathroom. What an inconvenience!!! The AC was not working properly and when it did, it made a lot of noise so that I had to turn it off in order to get some sleep. I could not open the windows, either. And, etc., etc. Anyways...my suggestion is simply this: don't waste your money on any of the rooms in this hotel in Boston. It seemed to me that the problems were related to the management. I have heard stories about 'no cancellation' policies, double-charges, etc. The next time I am in Boston, there is no way I'll stay there and I'll make sure none of my friends do, either. There are much better hotels about the same price in Boston; and since the transportation is so good and cheap (compared to other cities) you can get better deals in other parts of the town. After staying at the Milner, Boston, I came to the conclusion that "Location isn't everything!"
having stayed at the hilton back bay for 3 nights before we stayed at the milner i was disappointed at the way i was treated with my family at this big hotel chain then i had 7 great days at the milner it some times got a bit noisy at night but you are in the theater district .
the staff were very helpful all the time giving me directions i saw all of boston by bus and subway which they went out of there way to tell me. the room i had was double it was a bit small but comfotable i found no differance from this room to the one at the hilton only it was a lot cheaper and a lot more friendlier. i have travelled over europe a bit and stayed in afew hotels but my family and i have good memories of boston and the milner and its exellent staff
I reserved a room at the Milner the beginning of October to stay mid-November. Unfortunately because of a change of plans, I was forced to cancel. When I called and gave them my confirmation, they were unable to find it in the system. They further checked by my name and date of arrival and again nothing. I asked for a cancellation number and they said , don't worry we will take care of it. I was not happy because I did not want it to be charged to my credit card because of their computer problems. I subsequently made 3 additional calls, finally with my credit card company and they still would not give me a cancellation number and said the manager would call me back. Two days have gone by and I still have not heard from anyone! In my opinion, this is an unprofessional and poorly run hotel and I would never stay at their establishment - beware!
Good location but small rooms
I stayed a couple of days at the Boston Milner during the summer and I would mention as a positive point its good localization near the Boston Common Gardens. However the rooms are extremely small.
Sleep in the park instead of the Milner
Avoid this hotel at all costs! Tiny rooms which are poorly cleaned and maintained, threadbare sheets and towels, it's noisy (unless you like the sound of sirens all night long) and unhelpful staff. We booked via the internet and paid US $170 a night - only to find that the hotel bills the service provider at $99 a night. So we got a $99 room instead of what we'd paid for. COmpaining achieved nothing. Staying in this dump really put us off Boston.
Not as advertised!
This is not a hotel for women traveling alone. There was no assistance with luggage, only one person on duty as far as we could see. The hotel is not "quaint" by any stretch of the imagination. Walls are cinder block, rooms are quite small, dingy, and very basic. While we were deciding where else to stay, another hotel guest was at the desk complaining about the nighttime noise from a nearby nightclub and that her A/C went off at 2 AM and she couldn't get it back on, couldn't reach anyone to help her. Not as advertised. Beware.
