I had booked a one bedroom suite for us and my Hilton preferences show high floor as preferred. I was pleasantly surprised when I received a phone call before check in to ask if I minded a lower floor but an even nicer room. Sure, sounds fine, thanks for the call. What they neglected to tell me was that the... More

First rate upscale accommodations in the heart of Boston. The newly renovated Hilton property is outstanding in style and function. The third floor suite was an upgrade and while others found the lower floors somewhat noisy, we were not bothered by it. While breakfast was could be improved, it was, for us as Diamond members, sufficient and without charge. The... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
