Wyndham Boston Chelsea
Travel Blogs from Chelsea
After five months of travel our head of steam finally ran out as we checked into our hotel in the Boston suburb of Chelsea. The hotel was to us a true oasis, with all the luxury amenities we needed for the most comfortable of stays. We had checked in late on the 30th December, and woke around 11am on New Years Eve, as we made our way out …
Up at 8 and the weather looked grey and dull. The city was obliterated by cloud. We were forced to watch the weather forecast which gave us a little more hope. Another satisfying breakfast and back to the subway. It was an interesting and eye opening transit. Colin got to sit next to a him in a lovely sequined frock in very high heels .

After 3 months, you drink a special drink, which makes it shrink and then you poo it out. We are going to be doing an animal trial next week to make sure it works so all very exciting.

After a relatively short wait from the time we booked this journey until departure day, finally, our carry-on baggage was packed, the cab was in the driveway and we were on our way to the airport. I am not going to give an airport blow by blow but I do want to start out with a couple of comments and then that just about all all I am going to say about the worst part of overseas travel--airlines and airports.
I was very happy to book our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Wyndham Boston Chelsea

and into boston . take the trolly bus tour this great for sight seeing & to get your bearings .if you get the chance go whale watching . this is a great city
We arrived by car in Chelsea, following our directions from Mapquest. Mapquest did a great job for our five state tour, except for the directions to the hotel. We saw the Wyndham form the highway, but the next exit was further up the road. We eventually found the hotel, but my advice would be to get directions from the hotel staff to avoid driving all over Chelsea.
Beware of rates
I booked this hotel through Wyndham central reservations and they gave me a very good rate of for a suite. On arrival I was told that the booking did not mention about being a suite and was put into a normal room.
After a lot of discussion with a very rude Director of Sales and Marketting I managed to get the reduced rate for the normal room. However his attitude did spoil my stay! In addition some of the other front desk staff were rude and not very helpfull.
However the bar staff and drivers were very helpfull and freindly! The management has a lot to learn from their staff!
Bring Cell Phone
Hotel was fine but if you are planning on using the airport T stop as your transportation bring your cell phone. There is no phone at the T stop and you must call the hotel shuttle service to come pick you up from there. Sometimes the hotel shuttle was already near the airport, so the wait was only about 15 min. Other nights we waited 45 min or more to be picked up. Bring a jacket- you wait outside and it gets chilly, even on summer nights. Also, when you need to take the shuttle from the hotel to get to the T stop, it leaves every half hour and takes about a 15 min. drive.
Overall, if you are looking for a cheap rate for Boston, clean hotel, and are willing to factor in travel time of hotel shuttle to and from airport T, the savings are worth it to stay here.
It's ok, if you like Wyndham chain
The staff was helpful and to be commended.
The facility was ok, but the Wyndham chain could learn from some of the other hotels. Some extras would be nice. Sure, there's a coffee pot in the room, but how about coffee in the lobby, maybe a danish in the morning? Charging .75 for making an 800 call from your room? It's these little things that make me look for alternative chains.
Great but Interesting Location
I stayed in the Wyndham Chelsea this June and we had a pretty good experience. We were told by a resturant waitress that the town in which the hotel is located is rather dangerous. Lets put it this way, nobody is going to hurt you, but I still wouldn't go walking around after midnight. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was EXCELLENT. If you no not have a car for your use while in Boston, they have excellent shuttle service. They will take you to the Airport MBTA station and the trains will take you all over the city. TerraNova is the hotel diner and I did not eat there. Up the street is Massimo's...and it is the BEST Italian food I have ever tasted. Enjoy your stay!
The Hotel was fairly nice, except for broken pretzels and a old bandaid on the floor, and the TV screen with a quarter inch of dust on it, I guess it was clean enough. It was convienently located, we took the shuttle to the airport T stop and travelled around Boston that way, which was great! The food in the hotel restaurant was a little pricey but the food was good. Oh yeah and if you smoke they have NO rooms for smokers, even though when I booked the room it had a space for me to check off for smoking or non smoking!
Not the best location (recommend cabs for visit into Boston) , but a very clean, very new appearance hotel. Rooms were excellently appointed. Restaurant was excellent too. Price would have been 5x as much if this hotel were in downtown Boston (used Travelocity? to book).
Wonderful stay at the Chelsea!
Only stayed for this past weekend, but have nothing bad to say about this hotel except that it's next to a shady part of town, but don't let this discourage you! The staff was friendly, even honored my By Request membership when I booked through Expedia, gave me information on things to do, and was informed they have shuttle service to the airport and the metro. However, it is only 5 minutes on Rt. 1 and over the Tobin Bridge to downtown Boston. The beds were super comfortable, the room was well decorated with self controlled room thermostat, and the pool and hot tub downstairs was an added bonus! Overall it was a great stay and would highly recommend it.
Stayed at the Wyndham Chelsea on July 4, 5, and 6th, 2003. The courtesy shuttle picked us up at Logan International and we quickly weaved our way through a maze of construction and killer traffic to the hotel. The staff was very friendly and most helpful. They gave us great dining suggestions, arranged a trolley tour through Boston, along with good information on a haunted Salem tour. The breakfast buffet in the hotel restaurant was first rate. The room was clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced through Expedia. They even honored our requests through Expedia on room type, etc. The indoor pool and Jacuzzi along with the weight room were clean and very inviting after a long day. The immediate neighborhood has little to offer the on-foot urban explorer, but we did find a few surprises. The hotel courtesy shuttle leaves every 30 minutes to Logan and on the way they will leave you off at the airport T station. This is the subway into Boston and surrounds. Overall a great value and we will stay here again next time we return.
