Crowne Plaza Boston-Newton Hotel
Travel Blogs from Newton
This was a familiarization tour which took in New York, Boston, Tampa and Vancouver BC, Canada. Tour took in MIT, Harvard, Legal Seafood, Christian Science Church facilities and
historical Boston along with a trip down to the dock side to get a look at Old Iron Sides.
Quincy Market for some Indian Pudding. Yummy.
The drive to LAX was easy (at 4:00am it should be), parking at the
Marriott was really great (valet, and the bus to the airport was
waiting for us), flight left 3 minutes early, and flight was fast (80
mph tailwind). Virgin America is interesting, blue and purple lighting
in the plane, your own computer screen in the (leather) seat …

... that you area probably thinking, 'why Lancaster?' I will tell you know. When I was a little girl (of age 6) I went to London. I think my parents decided we should go because it would be a fun trip and I had just finished doing the play 'My Fair Lady' with my 1st grade class. I thought going to London would be amazing. I figured the streets would be paved with gold and always sparkling and I thought it would always be sunny because the queen ...
... because it’s on top of so many buildings. I agree.) The gardens are lovely, the canals charming (we took a boat ride) and Suzhou is also where all the silk factories are. I watched the silkworms eat the mulberry leaves and saw how silk was made and then stretched---really interesting. The visit of course ended with a visit to the requisite Number One Silk Factory where I contemplated but did not buy a silk comforter. They ...

It was more than OK to stay with the amount that I paid ($90 per night without breakfast). Clean room and friendly front and spacious room size.
One really annoying thing was A/C fan noise that was really really big and I woke up several times per night.

Very nice hotel
I was very pleased with this hotel. Yes, the hotel is literally above the Mass Pike, but I could not hear ANY highway noise. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. TGI Fridays is directly next door. Parking is convenient in the garage next door and was reasonable in price. (I paid $9.00 to park the car for the night.) I wouldn't hesistate to stay there again.
Just spent the past week-end at the Sheraton Newton. Coincidentally, the NY Yankees (my hometeam) were in town as well. Was intrigued as to the accomodations as I had read that it was "uniquely situated" over the Mass Pike.
I just came back from a 3 night stay. The place was easy to find, and is situated directly above the interstate. You definately can not miss it. The lobby area looks nice, but the hallway and rooms (carpeting and walls) look a little worn. There was a large group of students there at the time and we waited a while for the elevator during check out. Parking was an additional $9/night. The pool was a little small but it seems like nobody uses it anyway.
Fine hotel & conenient too
We stayed at the Sheraton Newton in early Sept. while visiting our son at Boston U. The hotel is convenient to the area of BU/Brookline/Allston, parking is cheap ($9 a day) and easy - with self-parking in a lot adjacent to the hotel. The view is nothing to write home about - the hotel is literally over I95, but with the blinds drawn, who cares? the staff was lovely, the room was clean and big and the price (an AAA rate) was right. An all 'round good deal!
I stayed here for one night on a class trip to Boston, and I was pleased in some areas and displeased in others.
My experience at the hotel was wonderful. The staff were delightful and helpful. I organized an event at the hotel and everything went perfect thanks to the banquet staff. The hotel was very accomendating to our needs. I would recommend a stay at the Sheraton to anyone and certainly come back to stay again.
I found the staff to be outstanding. There was a very warm and friendly feeling at the hotel like a home
A great alternative to Downtown Boston
This hotel, not very far from the Downtown area in Boston, is a great option from the Downtown hotels as it's just out of the city, has a free hotel shuttle to the Downtown area and has all the usual Sheraton comforts. The staff went out of their way to be helpful from check-in on, with the doormen being especially helpful and welcoming. I would definitely stay there again.
Over the Mass Pike...
The hotel was pretty nice and the rooms were pretty spacious. The hotel does straddle the Mass Pike, but I never once was awakened by traffic noise. There is not much to do in Newton, but if you are there on business this is a great choice.
Sheraton Newton: Recommended
I just returned from a 4 night stay at the Newton, MA Sheraton for a trip to Boston. I highly recommend the hotel. It is easy to find, (right off the Turnpike) and easy to drive into Boston from there. The staff was very friendly; the room was spacious, spotless (I think they must have been recently redone) and had beautiful beds and bed linens. The only downsides were the hall carpetting needed to be redone, and the air surrounding the swimming pool was really too cold to go in the pool! The health club was fine (no jacuzzi though), and again, the staff was very friendly and helpful.
