Fodor's Review

Step into a true piece of Boston history at the Park Plaza, one of the city's most identifiable landmarks. Ideal for tourists looking for old-world charm, the gargantuan Park Plaza is a true melting pot of guests. To keep up with the incoming rush of ultracool, ultramodern hotels, the Park Plaza rooms include pillowtop mattresses and plasma TVs. The new David Barton Gym (its tagline: "Look Good Naked") is a health club that looks like a nightclub, but make no mistake—just because the Park Plaza is getting a refresh doesn't mean it sold its soul. The old-school 1927 building is just as historically grand as ever, as evidenced in its gilded, chandelier-lighted lobby, which houses the new restaurant and lounge, Off the Common, and classically decorated rooms. Nick Varano's sexy and scene-y STRIP by Strega restaurant is also a new part of the hotel, whose entire renovation will be completed by June 2016.
