My wife and I stayed at the Boston Park Plaza for a weekend getaway and our first visit to Boston. The "Superior" room was totally inadequate in space. The room was so tiny you could not walk between the end of the bed and the wall. The only way was to shimmy sideways along the end of the bed. There was only enough room to open one suitcase. To open a second suitcase you had to pick it up from the floor and put it on the bed to have space to move to the bathroom. The shower in the bathroom was 19" wide and the shower curtain took up 6 inches. Who can shower in a space that is only 13" wide? I have stayed in hundreds of hotels around the world. We are really disappointed and feel misled.

Since we were there for the Boston Pop's 4th of July Concert, its proximity to the Hatch Shell, where the concert is held, was paramount. The hotel itself did not whoa you at the curb, but the doorman was gracious and once inside its understated elegance was striking. For the two of us the room, although small, was totally adequate, comfortable, clean and well appointed. We were there for four nights and the King Size bed offered a very comfortable night's sleep. The very large LED TV took up most of the wall at the foot of the bed and was simple to operate and provided numerous channels for viewing with other up to date technical features. Given its close proximity to our target viewing point the bang for the buck was spot on in our opinion. In the future, if we return again there is no doubt that we wont even consider any other location.

Beautiful place to stay. There's so much to see within walking distance, and for going farther afield there's a T stop close by.

When checking out you pay extra $25 per night fee use of facilities! I thought I was already paying for the use of facilities.
