Dangerously exposed electrical wiring in bathroom. Alerted hotel to concern. Did nothing during our stay. Had to have hobo washes. Not nice when we spent almost £300 per night. Avoid this hotel. Refund of 'Facility Fee' then no communicatiom from hotel at all. Extremely poor customer care. Take my advice - book elsewhere in Boston. The hotel does not care about the welfare of their guests. They juat want your money then ignore you.

Overall the Boston Park Plaza was a lovely hotel. The room was comfortable and quiet, the staff was friendly, and it's nicely situated in a quiet, upscale neighborhood just a short walk from all the downtown Boston attractions. The only thing that irked me was the $25 a day resort fee on top of the already pricey room and hotel fees. Now, they are upfront about this charge, so I'm not saying I wasn't aware of it, but I fail to see what it's for? A fitness center I did not use, and WIFI? Seems like that could easily be covered within the cost of the room. Beyond that, it was a pleasant stay and a very nice hotel.
