I've stayed here a couple of times. Nothing really to add except that the best thing IMO about this hotel is its proximity to the Back Bay Amtrak station. Very convenient if overnighting (I was) between connections to the main Amtrak Northeast Corridor and the Lakeshore Limited to Chicago.

Was there last September. Floor I was on was recently remodeled...still smelled of paint.

Nice, big hotel. There is a Champions at the hotel which was good for football Saturday activities. Subway is about 4 blocks away.

Ask for a postcard when you check in if you'd like a free one.

I intend to be in Boston April 26-29. I intend to use my 2 X14s at the Residence Inn Cambridge, but while searching I found the Omni Parker House @$119 x 2, + 3rd night free on either Expedia or Travelocity (can't remember which.)
How did you get the Copley for $85? Priceline/Hotwire, or your own choice?

Play the travel game 3 vacations into the future!

New RI downtown Boston?


This place looks pretty interesting. Any idea when it will open? I tried booking dates in April and May, no luck. I plugged in a June date and the room rate came back at $279 per night. That seems a little much (even for Boston)

This property is not in downtown Boston; it's in Charlestown, a mostly residential neighborhood that also includes some historical tourist sites (the USS Constitution, Bunker Hill monument).

Although fairly close to downtown, access can be tricky: the nearest subway stop is at least a 10-15 minute walk away, driving can be difficult if you don't know your way around, and it's unlikely you'd find a taxicab outside the hotel (though you could of course call for one).

Quincy Marriott

I'm looking to stay at the Hotel next month and I was wondering how Platniums are treated? Is there a concierge lounge or do they provide breakfast coupons?

I stayed there in late Feb, I believe. They have a concierge level with a lounge which, of course, is not open on weekends. The rooms on the concierge level were fine. The hotel appears pretty new. The only beef I had was that they had no high speed Internet access there.

I was there last week. I like this place. I have always been upgraded to the C-level. Lounge is nice, and big, with a view of the Boston skyline. The location is on top of an old granite quarry and it can be a little difficult to find the first time (especially at night) I was also disappointed by the lack of hi-speed internet at such a new property. I am hopeful that Socrates is right and that Hi-speed will be available in all full service properties over the next few months.

I've stayed at this hotel several times and have always been upgraded to a Club level room as Platinum. Since Marriott never seems to give me suites (batting about 2% so far) I don't ever expect one. Its a nice property which is convenient to business centers in Waltham and Newton area. There aren't many (any) places close-by for food but the hotel food hasn't disappointed me so far. Main St in Waltham has several restaurants (maybe 3 miles away?). In summary, its a typical Marriott with good service and the awful green/yellow/red furnishings. In the winter parking can be a pain since the hotel is spread-out and if you get a spot far away, then you freeze on the way from/to your car (ok... i'm from southern cali). You could request a room overlooking the Charles river and its quite nice, specially at this time of the year.

Right behind the hotel is a nice little place that rents canoes, kayaks, etc. I'm not particularly into that sort of thing, but I decided to try it on a whim, and it was a wonderful experience. I highly suggest it, if you have a spare hour or so!

I stayed there for quite a while some time back..... great property and loved the location. Don't expect much more than getting onto the club floor and the "Package" when you check in.

If your going to be there for a while, contact either Scott Alpert or Mary Jo Haleran in Marketing and they will work with you on the pricing.

Thank you all for your input. Stayed couple nights this week and found your reports to be right on the mark.
Room 'upgrade' to concierge floor (no suite), average/sufficient food in concierge lounge,welcome gift, courteous front desk staff.
Room kind of small and cramped (coffee service wedged next to TV), but nice view of the Charles River.
