June 20 / Red Sox 14 - Padres 5
Arrived in Boston with enough time to get a bite to eat at Cheers before heading to Fenway Park to watch the Red Sox game. Of all the ballparks I will visit this summer Fenway is the one I look forward to the most. My seats were on the first level right field line --- Fenway was built in a time when they …
The past couple of days have been amazing. I had wanted to write more and I will try and do it justice now, but I have been having too much fun!
We have now watched a couple of Celtics games and they really didn’t let us down. I was expecting them to win against the Thunder and lose to the Cavs, but it turned out to be the other way …
Got up at the crack of dawn for an early start on the drive back to Boston. It was a fairly warm morning, in Bar Harbour terms, with the temperature certainly above freezing. We loaded up the Whalemobile with all our extra luggage and it comfortably fitted in the vast boot. In fact, I think our VW Golf would have comfortably fitted in the boot as …
In the morning we had a great breakfast buffet at the hotel, and got directions to the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum. The hotel's staff was kind enough to give us a few moments on guests' computer in the lobby to get directions. Since my parents go to the museum every time they are in Boston, we naturally assumed that they will know how to get …
We decided to go for a long weekend to Boston, MA accompanied by my parents (actually it was their idea). They love the city and visit there two or three times a year. We ventured out of NJ early Friday morning, getting nestled for the long drive. We stopped at several rest stops for snacks and at an amazing scenic overview of the bay at Mystic, …

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Boston Hotel
Enjoyed the Sheraton
We stay at the Sheraton for numerous weekend getaways and find this property to be one of the best locations in Boston. Close to just about everything that's within walking distance and comfortable with all the ameneties one expects from a big city convention hotel. Being connected to the Prudential mall leaves travelers with a host of dining and shopping options. Kids will enjoy the pool and adults can use the fitness center all in the same location. Parking is $22 a night. I usually park in front of a meter for a few hours and wait until 8pm when the meter is free and park overnight. Best deals for this property can be found using Priceline. In my opinion, best overall property in Boston to see it all.
Great for a ballgame or a Meeting
We stayed here for a bout $100 a day. It was a about a 15 minute walk to Fenway and a bout 2 blocks from Newberry street , which has it all. It was a long walk to the Freedom trail but the subway was very close. The cab ride was $30 from the airport plus tip. There was a greta Ice Cream store about 2 blocks awau called JP Licks. The rooms are nice. big fluffy pillows and nice comfortable beds. Very quiet. The hotel had a nice little bar downstairs and teh maid sevice was excellent. I ran into only i non-friendly staff. But overall we enjoyed it.
I stayed here for two nights during Memorial day weekend. I got a good price on priceline of $74 each night, and the hotel was certainly a good deal for the money, though I would be very disappointed to see the least if I had to pay the normal rate of ~$200 / night.That said, I was not impressed with this hotel. It is not 4*. First, I have never seen such a crowded/busy hotel except in Las Vegas. They say this is the largest hotel in New England, and it seems so. It felt like a circus. This causes the most problems with the elevators. There are way too few to accomodate the number of people. Often, we would wait several minutes, only to have an elevator stop and be packed to gills, forcig us to start the process over again. Once you finally get on an elevator, it stops at nearly every floor and you get to see the exasperated faces of other people trying to get down. The lobby was often jam packed with bodies, but it is pretty big, so it could handle it. We were lucky to arrive for check-in when only a few people were in line, but during my stay I saw lines at least 50 bodies long waiting to check in. Not good. The only employees I had contact with was the check-in clerk who was very nice, and the concierge who was possibly the most surly individual I have ever encountered in the service industry. Gruff, non-responsive and condescending all in one. And they didn't have a decent map of the city (which I obtained for free at the tourist information booth in the adjoining mall). Room was small but seemed clean and we had a nice view of the Charles river. The window opened which was nice, but the walls were paper-thin and we heard people running in the halls and talking/yelling in their rooms all night.
Hallways and bathrooms badly in need of renovation
We stayed here 2 weeks ago. I had booked 3 nights. We stayed 1 night - then left and stayed at the Westin Copley Place (great hotel). The hallways and bathroom of the wing we were in were awful - the reason we left. I understood the whole hotel had been renovated. It turns out just the lobby and one wing have been renovated. The wing we were in had not been touched.N Nielsen
Great weekend away despite the rain!
The weekends forcast was rain and cool temperatures. This hotel and the surroundings provided everything we needed. Best of all there was no driving and we never even felt a rain drop. The rooms were extremely comfortable. The view from corner room 2756 was stunning!! The staff was very frindly despite a packed house. Want a weekend away and a little papampering with good food all near by. Than this is the hotel for you!
For a fall getaway, Boston is the best. The Sheraton is great; convenient to get to and it takes the fear of driving in Boston right away. It is right off the 90. When I went, Boston had a record rainfall for one day, but it didn't deter us from walking the Freedom Trail and seeing the sights. The room's hairdryer did double duty, drying our hair as well as our shoes and coats. The bedding is absolutely fantastic. The Pru mall is attached and is a virtual heaven for shopping and restaurants. We loved every minute and will come back soon!
Huge Hotel with a Wonderful Staff
I found this hotel to be superb in almost everyway. The front desk staff was the most accomodating. I was there for a conference, so I was not going to be paying for the room personally. They worked with us to ensure check in was as smooth as possible.
The hotel is HUGE! Great clean large rooms with spectacular views of the Back Bay and nice furniture. In the rooms I was most impressed with the linens, extremely comfortable. The pool, health club, and spa were extremely impressive!
It is in an excellent location, attached to the mall and convention center. It was also very convenient to mass transit to explore the beautiful sites of Boston.
I stayed at the Sheraton Boston while on a week long conference. The conference facilities were great. The hotel is large with very comfortable rooms. The beds are wonderful with great big pillows. That was the best part of the hotel. The pool is nice and big with a retractable roof. The hot tub is great, when it's working...
I stayed at this hotel in May 2002. I used my Starwood points, so I can't comment on the rates available. I was allowed an early check-in, which was very nice. Gave
If you are going to Boston soon, the Sheraton Boston has great deals. I just booked a room for 10 nights in early November for $50 per night. These rooms are normally $200+. It is a beautiful hotel in a very good location (Downtown Boston.)
