When you’re visiting one of America’s most historic cities, it feels like it would take another revolution to find a hotel to accommodate the family. The DoubleTree Guest Suites has been our choice time and time again when we visit Boston thanks to its beautiful waterfront location and its spacious rooms despite being in the middle of all the action. Despite being in the heart of downtown Boston, the DoubleTree feels as if it is located on its own island. On one side is the sprawling metropolis home to excellent museums, succulent restaurants, and boatloads of history, and on the other is the intellectual haven of Cambridge, home to Harvard University and MIT.
The DoubleTree Guest Suites are a stone’s throw away from Boston University. From here, you can catch the T train to Quincy Market, the Museum of Fine Arts, the New England Aquarium, and other terrific New England attractions. As suggested by the name, every room in the hotel is a suite consisting of a living room area, a bedroom with two queen beds, and a large bathroom. If you are traveling with a group or prefer more space to spread out, this hotel will suit you perfectly.
In addition, the DoubleTree’s rooms all have two windows: one facing the Charles River or the city and the other looking inwards to the hotel’s beautiful atrium. Whether you enjoy the reflections of skyscrapers of Boston while reading a great book or people watching from high above the lobby, the DoubleTree has you covered. And who could forget those irresistible cookies you receive as soon as you check in.
The DoubleTree is also packed with amenities most downtown hotels have to sacrifice for more rooms. This includes an indoor swimming pool, a huge fitness center, and three elegant restaurants. If you are looking for some late night entertainment, catch a stand-up comedian or a jazz band at Sculler’s Jazz Club. The breakfast package is not complimentary, but for a small fare, it gets the job done.
We highly recommend choosing the DoubleTree Guest Suites the next time you plan an adventure in Boston.
