Hilton’s first hotel in Boston is back under the Hilton Honors portfolio, and it’s now open for guests.
Let’s take a look at this historic hotel!
Hotel Purchased by Conrad Hilton in 1954
Hilton Boston Park Plaza has 1,060 rooms and suites and is located in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood.
The hotel offers 2 restaurants, 70,000 square feet of meetings and event space, a fitness center, and even a Topgolf Swing Suite, the first in Boston.
Hilton Boston Park Plaza is just 4 miles from Boston Logan Airport (BOS) and a block from Boston Common, the oldest city park in the United States. The hotel is accessible by public transit by the Arlington “T” Station.
The hotel has a storied history among the Hilton brand and was purchased by Conrad Hilton, the chain’s founder, in 1954. Originally named the Statler Hilton, it was one of Hilton’s first properties in Boston and has been a host hotel for dignitaries, presidents, celebrities, and cultural events.
“Nearly 70 years since Hilton first arrived in Boston, we’re thrilled to welcome back visitors to this iconic hotel. As we continue to grow Hilton Hotels & Resorts to more than 600 hotels welcoming guests globally, we are excited to add Hilton Boston Park Plaza to the brand’s portfolio,” said Leonard Gooz, Brand Leader at Hilton Hotels & Resorts.
Booking the Hilton Boston Park Plaza
For a hotel with such a storied history, you’d think award rates would be much higher than they are, but they’re pretty reasonable. A 1-night award stay starts at just 39,000 Hilton Honors points for dates in January 2024. You’ll also find cash rates hovering around $140 per night for dates throughout the winter and spring of 2024, which is a steal, especially in the notoriously expensive Boston hotel market.
Hilton Honors now uses variable pricing, which means award rates can be lower or higher depending on several factors. Still, it’s quite easy to earn Hilton Honors points.
You can transfer points from American Express, take a Lyft, or eat out through Hilton Honors Dining. The hotel chain also offers several co-branded credit cards, which offer generous welcome bonuses and even automatic elite status.
Hilton’s first Boston property is back under the chain’s umbrella after undergoing a significant refresh. Even better: the hotel is highly affordable using cash or points, and with its central location, it will likely be a popular hotel for Hilton loyalists visiting Boston for leisure or business!
