Boston Park Plaza Hotel & Towers Review

One of Boston's best locations, this antiques-laden hotel is ideal for those looking for old-world charm. To keep up with the incoming rush of ultracool, ultramodern hotels, the Park Plaza rooms include pillowtop mattresses and plasma TVs. There's also a trendy rooftop organic herb garden and an energy-efficient infrastructure, new HVAC throughout. (that cost more than $500,000). But make no mistake—it didn't sell its soul. The old-school, 1927 building is just as historically grand as ever, as evidenced in its gilded, chandelier-lighted lobby and classically decorated rooms. As at most vintage city hotels, the rooms are rather diminutive; the bathrooms, even more so (except on the 15th-floor concierge level). Don't miss the decadent dessert shop Finale.
