Lodgings in Downtown Boston
Located in Boston’s Back Bay, one will find two glistening chandeliers upon entering the hotel lobby. The hoteliers pay special attention to aesthetic appeal in both the common areas and the rooms themselves. The hotel is particularly appealing when it is decorated for Christmas, decked out in holly and wreaths, with your favorite Christmas Carols sounding from the baby grand player piano.
Rooms are available in both smoking and non-smoking, many of which have a beautiful view of the courtyard. Two options are offered for breakfast in the morning. One is a continental breakfast and the other is a full buffet breakfast that includes scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage, etc

One might notice it on the shuttle or cab ride in, but the Boston Park Plaza Hotel is directly down the street from Cheers, the bar that inspired the NBC hit television show of the same name. The bar and restaurant is an extremely popular tourist attraction and one needs only to cross the street onto Arlington and follow it for about five minutes to the Beacon Hill location.
Also, an important tourist location is the Public Gardens (America’s first public park) and Boston Common. In the park, one can ride the swan boats in the frog pond or just take a leisurely stroll. Overlooking the park is the Massachusetts State House and, also nearby, is Faneuil Hall Marketplace.
While at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel, ask the concierge about deals on Boston Trolley Tours to see about a deal or, if sports are your thing, perhaps tickets to a Celtics or Bruins game. Also very popular in Boston are the Duck Boat Tours, Paul Revere’s house, and the Freedom Trail.
