Nine Zero Hotel - a Kimpton Hotel
Travel Blogs from Boston
Phillip and I departed London Heathrow at 1505hrs on Virgin Atlantic Airways flight VS11 for Boston. Expected flying time is 7hrs 30mins. We are flying Premium Economy. We are staying the nights of 23 and 24 June at Nine Zero Hotel, 90 Tremont Street, Boston. Check in is from 1500hrs and check out is 1200hrs.
Got into Boston late last night after many long hours of driving and flying. In bed by midnight Boston time and up at 9:30 (Paul had to be at his conference by 7:30 so he was up way ahead of me). I was up in time to attend mass at the Paulist center about a 3 minute walk from the hotel. Made it to lunch at some unmemorable Italian restaurant on …

Much of Boston is reclaimed land - the airport, Black Bay Area and many other inlets have succumbed to 'progress'. A before-after comparison is impressive. Or scary. What were these city builders thinking?!

Historical Traveler Reviews Nine Zero Hotel - a Kimpton Hotel Boston
Nine Zero, Ten+ Stay!
Wow. This hotel is truly excellent. The location is convenient to the T (and therefore to the entire city) and to all the historic sites, the rooms are luxurious and extremely comfortable and the service is friendly and attentive. In fact, the staff went out of their way to solve a problem I had with late check-out by allowing my cat (!!!) to stay in the room until 3 pm until I could get back from my meeting! (Did I mention that they allow animals if you sign a pet waiver?) We both enjoyed our stay enormously and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it over ANY other hotel to anyone staying in Boston. It's WELL worth the price.
Not a zero-sum game
Superb hotel that combines relaxed elegance with attention to detail. Nine Zero manages to capture all the elements necessary for both the leisure and business traveller, providing services such as free in-room internet access, frette linen, and walk-in showers. Room service is also an affordable treat, and has some interesting options. Location is also perfect, being adjacent to Park Street T and Boston Common, as well as being on the Freedom Trail. Staff are also courteous and attentive. Perhaps the most surprising feature though is the affordability, since room rates are positioned within the means of many. So, Nine Zero is definitely worth consideration and quite possibly a stay.
Nine Zero is fabulous!
Nine Zero is a fabulous hotel! It's a great location, near Boston Common and the Market. It's very hip and modern, but also confortable. (The beds are great.) We stayed in one of the "intimate" rooms, but it was spacious and had a large bathroom. My parents booked a separate reservation for an intimate room and were upgraded to a "fantastic" room when they mentioned that it was their anniversary. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel.
Very impressed and satisfied. Has all the feel of a great boutique without the ultra-small rooms and rude staff. Room design outstanding (and I had the lowest price, smallest room with a view of a brick wall so this is saying a lot!) and the bathrooms were top notch! Staff was very helpdul and tou cannot beat the location - right off the T. For $100/night don;t think you can come close to these kind of accomodations in the middle of any major city.
Recently stayed at Nine zero. What a hotel that modern and exquistly designed. THe candles burning in the lobby were a wonderful aroma every time i came inthe lobby. The nightly turn down service with classical music was stunning. The staff were well dressed, elegant and more then willing to accomodate. Excellent price for this type of hotel. Room had nice size marbel, glass and plenty of towels with a robe as a standard luxury. Bed was the most comfortable ever Glad i went here instead of the old boston hotels tht everyone complained about.
My wife and I decided to go on vacation over New Years 2002-3. We called just a day prior and made reservations. The staff was very firendly and courteous over the phone. The drive up avoided the Big Dig but gets tricky around the commons. (Here's the deal, Go stright by the capitol building then turn right past the "Federalist" otherwise you might turn early and have to go all the way around the commons again.
The Best of Boston Luxury
I have stayed at both Fifteen Beacon and the Four Seasons in Boston. My stay at Nine Zero topped them both. I was struck by how much more intimate this hotel was in comparison to the other top hotels in Boston. Fifteen Beacon eat your heart out, this hotel is not stuffy and its restaurant, Spire, is one of the sexiest bar/restaurants in town with food that is clearly among the best in the city.
Loved the Nine Zero Hotel...it was very luxurious and the staff was accomodating and helpful. The bed was sooo comfortable!!! There's a good-sized desk to use a laptop, and a safe to keep it locked up when you leave.
The Nine Zero Hotel is an outstanding value for an upscale hotel and a much needed break from the
standard Marriott/Hyatt/Westin, etc, accomodations. I was able to get a $199 per night rate from their internet site which for an upscale downtown Boston hotel is unheard of. Rooms and service was superior and the staff very friendly. We will stay here again.
Nine Zero - Hotel Perfection.
I cannot rate this hotel highly enough - it's quite superb. The rooms are stunning - modern and stylish but extremely comfortable and relaxing. The staff are extremely welcoming and professional - very willing to help their guests. I stayed there for my honeymoon and will always stay at this hotel when in Boston.
