Perfect location, nice hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 7, 2006

This is a beautiful hotel right in the theater district and next to the New England Medical Center. The lobby is nicely designed, spacious, and comfortable. There is a bar in the lobby area, which was a nice place to relax and meet people. Because it was open to the lobby, it felt spacious, even though the bar area was farily small. There are two restuarants - the one next to the bar is for lunch and dinner. The one downstairs is good for breakfast.

The staff is wonderful. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to provide information, to show me on the map how to get places, etc.

Check-in was quick and easy, and they even provide a big warm chocolate chip cookie! (They also sell these -- I was really tempted! They were SO GOOD!)

Rooms range from smallish (one full-size bed) to fairly large (2 beds), but all comfortable with a large tv (including movies on demand), fridge, large bathrooms stocked with a hairdryer and all the toiletries you could need, etc.

The Wang YMCA is attached to the hotel, and you can get complimentary passes to use the workout facilities and pool.

I would definitely recommend this place.

Unique Quality: Each room has high-speed internet wireless access. There are also two computers in a small room off the lobby that are available for guest use. There is a fully stocked fridge in the room, although be warned - you get charged automatically if you even remove something from there. You can't put it back in if you change your mind, so make sure you really want it!

The NE Medical Center T stop (orange line) is next door and the Boylston Street T stop (green line) is about 2 blocks away. You can also get free hotel shuttle service to the Expo Center.

There are plenty of restaurants and stores within a 10 minute walk. Boston Commons is a 5 minute walk away. I walked to the Prudential Center in 15 minutes. Boylston Street and Newbury Street are both within blocks.

Directions: Directly across from the New England Medical Center, right off of Stuart Street.

Very modern and comfortable, perfect location and excellent price. Boston hotels are usually quite expensive. But if you live without sleeping at the city center, this hotel is the perfect solution. You can walk to all main attractions, and it's right across from the local subway.

Great Location, Outstanding Service

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 28, 2005

The service was fantastic. I could not do justice to the hospitality I experienced at this hotel. Everyone was helpful friendly and seemed genuinely interested in my comfort and needs. I spoke briefly to the manager about my stay and she sent up a basket of fruit and mineral water that evening along with a handwritten thank you!! The concierge Manny was a gem. One day I missed a friend who was to pick me up and Manny went to the T station to look for me. He knew I was upset about missing my friend. Upon my arrival, I asked for a refrigerator and got it within minutes, ditto when I asked for "fluffier" towels!!!!!! I'm picky and I was NOT disappointed. The staff referred to me by name. I will go back again!!!!! Good Job Doubletree!!!!!

Unique Quality: The Doubletree is cozy without being too small. The lobby has a homey feel with a big goldfish tank and comfy sofas and a bar. There are cookies and Cold Ice tea in the lobby at night! There is a cozy room with free internet usage and less than 50 feet out the door and you're at the (T) stop for the orange line....Two stops and you're in Downtown Crossing. There are a ton of places within a short walking distance of the hotel. You go thru the parking lot and you are at the Wang Center in the heart of the Theater District. GREAT SERVICE SUPER LOCATION.

Directions: Steps from the Wang Center, Theater District, the (T) and the trolley stops at the front door!!!

Just Okay Accommodation

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 18, 2004

DoubleTree Boston Downtown is a bland hotel in all aspects. The lobby and the bar could be in any other hotel, the staff is polite but impersonal, and the rooms have all amenities but nothing special. This can be also thought as an asset, you are not paying extra for any bells and whistles that you don't need.

The hotel is clean, the bed is good and hot water is readily available in the shower (the shower itself is the common American type, one knob for controlling both everything and unadjustable head)

The location is quite good, near the theatre district and chinatown, from walking distance of Boston Commons and shopping areas -- at least for European, maybe some Americans would prefer car or cab...

Unique Quality: There are no unique qualities here.

Directions: Near the theatre district and chinatown.
