Fodor's Expert Review Hyatt Regency Boston

1 Ave. de Lafayette, Boston, Massachusetts, 02111, USA, Boston, Massachusetts 02111, USA See on Map

The Hyatt Regency Boston sits amid the colorful Downtown Crossing neighborhood, a convergence of discount stores and crowds of 9-to-5 office dwellers that work in the area. Just steps away from cultural attractions, businesses, and universities (visiting parents of Suffolk and Emerson students will like the proximity) guests are literally in the center of everything.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Smart travelers call ahead for good deals on theater or shopping packages.


Take an elevator ride upstairs to a guest room equipped with an iHome alarm clark radio, pillow-top mattress, 55" HDTV, and understated earth-color furnishings. Quite spacious, they also feature their own sitting area. Junior Suites have a queen-size sleeper sofa. Room views are of office buildings, but still manage to be pretty.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The endless construction in the neighborhood may bug some guests.

The cool marble lobby is decorated with dark-wood furnishings and geometric-pattern rugs. There's plenty of tables and seating where guests can get work done.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Some guests complain that the two sets of elevators are difficult to navigate.

Sweat the day away in the 24-hour fitness center, which has plenty of workout equipment and machines, most of which have LCD TV's. They also offer complimentary yoga, runs and fitness classes. The Hyatt also offers guided historic walks around Boston. If you head in for a workout, don't miss the beautiful outdoor terrace.

Make sure to get a chilled towel after you work up a sweat!

Avenue One Restaurant and Lounge serves up all 3 meals, and has a great kids menu. Avenue One Express is a quick spot to grab a cup of coffee and a pastry before heading out for the day. The Lobby Bar also serves Bar Jars, which are small bites.

The Lobby Bar serves up wine and cocktails, and has a strong scotch selection. Guests can order small bites, or items from the dessert menu.


Getting Around

One of the Hyatt's most unique qualities is that it is connected to the MBTA public transit underground. A direct entrance from the hotel into Macy's leads into an entrance to the MBTA Downtown Crossing station. However, many guests prefer to travel on foot, thanks to the Hyatt's central location.


There's plenty of spots to grab a meal in Downtown Crossing, including Legal Crossing (3-minute walk), which is a spin on the classic Legal Sea Foods, and Teatro (6-minute walk) a chic Italian spot.


The Hyatt is close to Yvonne's (5-minute walk) a stylish bar that gets quite packed. For sophisticated wine options, head around the corner to Sip Wine Bar & Kitchen (3-minute walk.)


The hotel is fairly green—among other things, it composts leftover food and uses energy-efficient lighting, including motion-detector light switches. The pet-friendly hotel also has a resident dog of their own: Remi, an adorable Boston Terrier.
