The Doubletree Guest Suites in Boston is extremely popular with conventioneers (fun-loving vintners during my stay). I also saw international businessmen and their families enjoying crazy American things like cheese fries and beers from a plastic, ice-filled bucket. I decided to go there, because there was a special offer – doubletree-guest-suites.bostonhotelsmotels.com.
Some words about hotel staff
The service is a little prefab, especially during high-volume conventions, but the staff is generally friendly and accommodating. Be sure to get vocal about any inconvenience: Management is generous with vouchers.
Service across the Boston Hotel Doubletree Guest Suites is very friendly, and the staff really makes an effort to personalize interactions despite the hotel’s large size. Perhaps this is in part due to the 20 percent gratuity that is added on to room charges.
The concierge was equally gracious and accommodating, making sure to save a place for me on a guided tour that was about to start, and even having them hold the tour until I arrived.
Room service was also impressively prompt. When I placed an order at 10:40, I was told it would arrive no later than 11:10; it was at my door at 10:55, so i wrote my grateful review on cvent.com/venues/boston/hotel/doubletree-suites-by-hilton-hotel-boston-cambridge/venue-1ac556fd-2fde-4924-9943-cbf314868a4d
Service is prompt right through to the end of the day; housekeeping stops by at 6 p.m. to turn down beds and provide complimentary bottled water and mints..
Though rooms at Hotel Doubletree Guest Suites (starting at 350 square feet) are larger than many other hotels in the area, some feel slightly outdated, the walls are thin, and the bathrooms are worn out at least until the summer ’16 renovation.
My deluxe city view room (the smallest, least expensive room available) had 300-thread-count sheets and a safe large enough to fit my laptop. Modern touches included an iHome iPod dock and a 32-inch LG flat-screen TV. Wi-Fi was also available, at a cost of $12.95 per day.
Outside the room was a small balcony with views of Downtown Boston and Shops across the street. I was hesitant to sit in the soot-covered chairs, however.
The bathrooms are nothing special, and I ended up with one of the biggest showers I’ve ever taken in the Doubletree Guest Suites Hotel caliber. The water pressure was subpar, and the temperature only got warm, never hot. The shower had just a small dish for the Bloom brand toiletries, so I could barely fit anything else on it. The towels were clean but scratchy.
The hotel is conveniently located.
The Doubletree Guest Suites, Boston occupies a massive stretch of public beachfront, though chairs cost $10 to rent, detailed information – travelweekly.com/Hotels/Boston/DoubleTree-Suites-by-Hilton-Hotel-Boston-p6651190. Towels are free, and great food is a short walk away at Bar Grill.
There is plenty of beach space in front of the hotel, and guests never complain about being able to find adequate space to sun themselves.
So briefly, I`d love to recommend this hotel to anybody.
