It was a good experience, didn't have problems only when I needed a taxi they took longer than expected and because the front desk was busy they didn't seem to care about it. Aside from that I didn't have any problems because I tried to take the bus. This place is a little far from the subway so the bus ride was about an hour. the hotel itself was good, […] clean nice and decent sized room. there is restaurants right across and even a walgreens about a block away, and also a liquor store if you need one. Also only the top floors have an ice machine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
it was 99 degrees out, so water bottles from the bell staff was very much appreciated at all times. bedding, linens, etc very comfortable. Quiet roomsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My reservation said two beds but they only gave me one and they blamed that on hotels.comGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a surprisingly nice stay. I got a great rater for a decent room and the staff were very personable and accommodating. No complaints, which is unusual for me and Boston area hotels.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Earth Quake Hotel"
Not only there is a tremendous noise due to improvement outside but the hotel is sitting above a highway. If you want to experience a real earthquake situation this is a hotel for you. Othewise, wait until they isolate everything in 2020.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location wasn't bad as far as being close to the highway and public transit. However, it was actually too close to the highway! When we first got into our room, it kind of cool looking out onto the highway. However, at 3 am, it wasn't quite as neat! I know that the hotel is undergoing renovations but it seemed like things could have been quiete […] r. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ah hotel over the railway"
Strange but true, this hotel is just over a railway with nigh-time traffic. If the noise from the close I-90 Turnpike won't wake you up, trains probably will. Cleaniness is good and staff is very kind.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value. Easy to get to Boston."
The price was good for the proximity to Boston. The room had updated furnishings and very up to date bedding. The t.v. was great. The bathroom was ok but on the small side with a not so new tub. The hallways and reception area were very warm (not air-conditioned) but luckily the a.c. worked well in the room. The work on the parking garage was not very […] pleasant to hear on top of the highway noise. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Crowne Plaza Boston"
Public transit is convenient, so there's no need to take a cab when you are going to visit the city. That said you can save money and time during the trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean room comfy bed excellent front desk staff"
Very pleased. Despite construction in front driveway, area was clean and noise limited. Front desk staff extremely helpful. Outside doorman friendly helpful and ready with cold bottled water on a hot day. Would return.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice surrounding neighborhood"
My stay was very pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not recommend, disdappointed"
First of all, there is no microwave, no fridge in the room, parking is additonal $9.00/day. Addition, the hotel is just built on the top of a highway, which is not good healthwise.Genuine Expedia guest review
People were great, service was wonderful, hotel was fabulous!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is very noisy. It's built on top of highway and not livable. The hotel staff is very unfriendly. Lied about the availability of the upstair rooms. Not responsible to customer.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very good value for the price."
Good location with access to many things and navigating. The Staff was helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good spot in Newton"
Not much around the area but the hotel is a comforting place. Pillows weren't that great but that's personal preference. Room updated however popcorn ceiling has not been.Genuine Expedia guest review
Big problem with getting a cab at the hotel. The front desk and cab stand don't coordinate, and every morning I was there, it was a disaster. The cab stand routinely sends reserved cars away or lets the wrong people take them, and very few city cabs roll by there in the morning. I won't stay there again without a rental car. Also, I'm not sure what […] happened to my reservation, but I booked an Executive King, and they offered me a standard 2-double bed room when I got there. They brushed it off and were unwilling to look into it any further. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient for conference on-site"
- but loud and noisy construction going on, late afternoon cleaning of room...They did let me into my room early in the morning and that was a plus as I flew in on a red-eye.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would not recommend"
There are no towel racks or counter space in bathroom. There is a lot of traffic noise because the hotel is along a busy highway. There is nothing to do around hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"in town for seminar"
the staff was amazingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Everything but good WiFi"
Great location. Nice bedding but there should be one flatter pillow (a choice of 2 or 3).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fenway Park Awesome :-)"
Hotel was fine hard to get into it, I was happy once we parked, Boston is not a place to drive in that's for sure.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient location for driving, but mediocre"
Front desk staff were snotty and unhelpful, cafe staff were great. A little run down, but basically okay. The location is good for driving to places in the Boston area, but the room got a lot of noise from the turnpike, which the hotel sits on top of.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very enjoyable stay. The staff was friendly"
Very good bus was easily accessible to Fenway park. I have already recommended the hotel to 2 peopleGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel. Everyone very friendly"
Had a great room everyone was great. The noise from interstate only draw back but we were tired and that was fine. I will go back and use againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice spot in Newton"
Friendly, courteous staff and a comfortable room. I didn't get a chance to check the amenitiesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and comfortable room but not very central"
My room is clean and comfortable. Free wifi is usually slow. Hotel location is good if you have a car; otherwise, public transportation is not as convenient and cab is expensive to airport or downtown Boston.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Couples Stay"
Lovely experience. Very clean and well appointed and very helpful staff. The restaurant was also very good and open late (midnight on a weekday night).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable hotel way out of town"
The hotel is situated quite a long ride by bus and trolley - it took us anything from 45-75 minutes to get into downtown Boston. If you are going for a weekend or just for a couple of days, I would not recommend this hotel. However, the hotel itself was clean, the staff friendly and the rooms comfortable, as you would expect of a Crowne Plaza hotel. […] In the evenings a few restaurants were around for food (recommend the Thai) but not a whole lot and very little choice for breakfast. The gym was well equipped, the pool is somewhat on the small side. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was very musty although it was clean. The foyer was pleasant and well maintained, but when you went up to the rooms, it was like a different hotel-looked more like a motel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and comfortable at a great rate."
We we surprised when booked through Expedia's mystery rate, we got to stay at this hotel. The room was clean and modern but a bit on the smaller side. For one night it was fine. Because it was built over the highway, we did hear highway noise. Request a room on the upper floors. We were on the third floor. It was very convenient to Boston and Cambridge, […] maybe 3-4 miles. I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Noisy but comfortable"
All good--there was some drilling going on on my check out day (Saturday) and I had hoped to sleep in. That was annoying. The pool is credibly small--should be called cool, still jacuzzi.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were on the 7th floor and still heard lots of traffic noise. Parking was $9/day extra.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Noise, noise, noise!"
The service at the hotel is what made me rank this higher than I probably should. I stayed in the sixth floor....right above the pike and across from the elevator. I should have asked for a new room but didn't want the hassle. The noise level in the room was unbelievable. People coming in and out of the elevator and traffic noise that was ridiculously […] loud, all night long. Overall, a decent hotel just make sure you know where your room is before you agree to it.

This is a pleasant hotel, but it does have a highway that runs beneath it so traffic noise is a problem. They are kind enough to provide earplugs!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close enough to Boston in a nice town setting."
The room was very comfortable and kept very kept. There is a bit of noise from I90 as it runs under the hotel but nothing to keep one from a good night's sleep. The carpet in the elevator needs to be replaced. Everyone we had contact with from the doorman to the folks at the desk were always ready and willing to assit us in any way they could.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Crowne Plaza was a great experience!! The rooms were huge and t.he beds were so comfortable. I was really impressed by the large bathroom and nice amenities in the room. I loved having so many cable channels and was thrilled that the parking was only $9.00.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The air and heating register noise was atrocious!! So loud. The room was not cleaned until 1:30 pm. we even asked the cleaning woman that the room be cleaned when we left early so we could have privacy when we returned. We did eat breakfast and lunch in the hotel, and it was very good!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When you build a hotel over the Massachusetts Turnpike, how about some sound proofing?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice trip in Newtown"
My parents were living here for 4 nights. The location is easy to approach by driving. Everything is great, but the noise issue, because the hotel is above the highway.I would recommend to the visitors who never have sleeping issue, and has car.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Do Not Stay At Crown Royal At Boston Location"
The noise from the trains going under the Hotel every 20 minutes was irratating. The trim for the restuarant was pulling away at the entrance. I would not recommend this hotel to any of my friends. The rooms are small and have noise curtains because they are located over the mass. pike. The gave me earplugs for night time sleeping. That should tell […] about the noise levels.

"Great location for college visits"
Perfect location. Right on the highway (but still quiet). We were able to visit 4 colleges in 2 1/2 days.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Several items needed some upkeep. The light in the bathroom flickered ceaselessly, and the the fitness center had some problems. The treadmill "stop" button was jammed and I had to fuss with it for a while to get it going. Also, the TV completely froze and wouldn't display anything, even after unplugging it. The pool also had a six person limit?? It's […] a little small, but that's kind of weird. These are hardly big issues to me, but kept me from giving it four stars. I would stay again.

"Good hotel for short stay"
Good location with easy access to Boston. Reasonable rates. Well maintained rooms and public areas. Very quiet despite the fact it straddles the Mass. Pike.Genuine Expedia guest review
My stay happened to coincide with the Boston lockdown on April 18-19. Under some very adverse circumstances the staff remained calm and professional, doing their best to deliver quality service. I especially commend the staff at Martha's restaurant for thier superior customer service. I did not encounter a single staff member who did not go out of their […] way to ensure the customer experience was a positive one. From the front desk, to maintenance, to housekeeping and restaurant staff, your employees are to be commended for their fine work. I hope you tell them. They deserve to hear it.

Very stayable hotel, especially if you're going THERE and not aiming to use it as a jumping off point to see Boston. A couple pretty solid restaurants and a Starbucks in walking distance; the room had a deep tub, good heating & cooling, and nice large windows. No subway station anywhere near, but on weekdays (not weekends) , the 504 bus goes directly […] from the hotel into the city. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The front desk was very helpful.I went to Boston for the first time to look at colleges with my daughter.I was not at all familiar with the T but the front desk took the time and explained everything to us!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Inconsistent Internet access at this hotel"
The hotel is generic with no surprises. However, one BIG problem is inconsistent internet. Two days without internet-- a real killer for business traveler and very disappointing in a hotel of this size. If they don't assure that this is fixed, I would NOT stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Good Night in Newton"
The hotel was everything I was hoping for A very Friendly quite Restaurant & Bar, with friendly service and good food. The breakfast buffet was really quite good and a good value for the money.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A HIghway Run's Through It""
Location is THE WORST!! Had a room on the 10th floor (over the Mass pike). Traffic is non stop and brutally loud.You may get some sleep from 1:00 am to 4:45 am. weekdays. If you choose to drive, be careful this is the most dangerous intersection you will EVER encounter. (I am a Boston native) so I have some perspective on the subject. Good news is, […] you can see the traffic on the pike and time your exit! There is bus stop located across the street. We rode the express bus to South Station and it was cheap and easy. The Kenmore bus was miserable, literally stopped @ every block on the route & very overcrowded. The closest T is Newton Centre and there is no commuter parking available and no normal cab service. The "Deluxe Train Station Diner" located at the stop closed at 9:30 when we wanted to wait for a cab there. The manager gave us the # of a cab company and told us there was a cab next door. It was" Holden's Cab." 4 cabs in the lot, nobody there. Cabby drove like a maniac at the crazy intersection (which is difficult) but there was very little traffic and he tried to hit a SUV on purpose (road rage). He entered there lane of travel. Food (did not do hotel food at all advised not to) Starbucks and D&D close by. Amarin Thai very good & Buffs Pub (great wings). Uno's pizza walkable too. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
