We loved our visit to this hotel. The room on the 26th floor had a great view, including the fireworks on July 4th!
Directions: Good location in Back Bay.
Years ago when I lived in Boston, I had the opportunity to stay at the Back Bay Hilton on two occasions. Once the night of the Back Bay Ball and once when my folks came to town for my college graduation. This is an excellant hotel with A+ service. It is a tad bit on the pricey side with the average room at just under $300, but you can find really good deals on Priceline. I also attended my Senior College Ball at one of the convention rooms located in the hotel. The food was excellant and the drinks from the bar great. They provided the graduates with a night we wouldn't remember. This is where I met my good friend Jason for the second time.
As for the rooms, from what I remember everything was perfect from the linens to the extra soft towels to the full line of beauty items provided by the hotel. Too bad I wasn't a Hilton Honors member then.
We stayed at this hotel during a visit for a Vt meeting with a cast of other vt'rs. We weren't planning on staying another night in Boston as we had only reserved a one night stay at the Hyatt but Yubert twisted our arms and offered us to bunk with him at this lovely hotel.
The hotel was fantastic, centrally located with a bar and restaurant in the main lobby.
He got this fantastic hotel through Hot Wire for a whopping $89 a night for a double. To top off the great rate, we were lucky and have a room on the 25th floor. The hotel has 26 floors with fantastic views.
Unique Quality: The room was equipped with two double beds, an ergonomic desk and internet capability. All the amenities you come to expect from Hilton in the Historic Back Bay area.
Parking comes at a high price, self parking is $34 per night, valet parking is $38 per night.
Directions: Historic Back Bay Area.
The workers are the most friendly out there, always ready to help..the hotels are right for the price, the rooms are big for the price (especially compared to the Park Plaza.) You will feel very comfortable here. And the locationis perfect!
Hilton Back Bay is in a great location for the vacationing traveler. Close to Fenway Park, and also Boylston... you are right near nightlife and sporting events!
You can get a room at any Boston Hilton which includes admission to almost all the attractions in Boston. You just have to book through a special Hilton website. It includes a 2 day trolley, admission to the mfa,museum of science, isabella stewart gardner museum and whole bunch more.
Paid $89 per night using Hotwire. What a deal, normal price would have been $179 for a room with two double-beds.
Parking though was $30/night for self-park and $35/night for valet.
Unique Quality: Indoor pool on 7th floor. Twenty six floors total.
Directions: Near Copley Plaza and Hynes Memorial Convention Center.
We stayed here one night. Yubert and Rowan were so very kind to share their hotel room with us. I thank you both so so much. Anytime you are in NYC let us know.
The room was a typical hotel room. Nothing special save the company. 4 VTers raising hell....
We sat in the lobby lounge until well after 1am talking and drinking. After the bar closed down we still stayed. Slowly the trickle towards bed occurred.
Lots of personal humor that night. Being "stuck" sharing a bed with Janet for one. It was our first trip together although no one knew we were at time.
Unique Quality: We made use of the bar for a nightcap and then moved out to the lounge in the lobby. Just sitting up talking doing the usual VT meeting things at a usual VT hour. It was quite comfortable with soft plush chairs and couches.
Directions: It is pretty much across the street from the Prudential Center mall.
I am coming to Boston in Sept and travelling alone. I am looking for the easiest but most economical way to get from the airport to the Hilton Hotel Financial District. I will consider all options. Also, if I choose to take a shuttle, do I have to book it in advance?
If you don't have a lot of luggage, you can take the Water Taxi to Rowes Wharf. Your hotel is nearly across the street from Rowes Wharf. It's only $10 ($17 Round Trip). Take the free shuttle bus from the Terminal marked "Water Transport", which will take you to the pier. A short 5 or 10 minute ride across Boston Harbor. The view is spectacular. And it's VERY different.
How much luggage?
If you don't want to do the subway with bags then just grab a cab from the airport. No reservation required. The cabs queue up at all of the terminals and you probably won't need to wait much if at all. My guess is a cab ride to the Hilton will cost about $15-18 including tip and toll.
If mobility is not a problem then you can take public transit. A free shuttle bus stops at all terminals, no reservation required, or even available. The shuttle will take you to the Blue Line Airport subway stop. From there probably the closest subway stop to the Hilton is Aquarium. Might be best to take a cab from Aquarium - I believe there is a cab stand right at the Aquarium. The walk from Aquarium is only 1/4 mile but directions are not easy to give, so cab is probably easier especially with bags. The subway will cost $1.25 and a cab maybe $5?
If you're hard-core and want to walk from the subway, here's the MBTA's directions from Aquarium to 89 Broad Street, which is where the Hilton is at:
Walk a short distance SW on State St.
Turn left on Atlantic Ave.
Walk a short distance S on Atlantic Ave.
Turn right on Milk St.
Walk approx. 1 block W on Milk St.
Turn left on Franklin St.
Walk approx. 1 block S on Franklin St.
Turn right on Broad St.
Walk a short distance NW on Broad St.
Total walking is 0.23 miles.
Just to clarify that the cab fare estimate give is low. There's a $4.50 tunnel toll alone for taxis, so expect to pay well into the twenties.
Oops. I take back what I said about the taxi fare being in the twenties. Forgot you were talking the Hilton Financial District and not the Hilton Back Bay. However, the Tunnel toll is what's noted.
