This hotel is incredibly noisy! It sits on top of the Mass turnpike so there is traffic noise all night and day long.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very loud! Walls were so thin you could hear everything happening next door. Light in the bathroom was out so you had to use the heat lamp. Coffe maker didn't work and for $385.00 a night it was very very disappointing. Because my son was in the hospital, this was the only hotel available to stay my first 3 nights near the hospital. I will never stay […] there again! Also $28.00 to self park every night. They were fixing the parking lot so jack hammering started at 7am. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't do it"
There are so many other options...go somewhere else. Noisy noisy noisy. Old. They should discount this place ...they even charged for parking in a dump. What a dump. Sorry. Even if you think this is going to be value...this is value you do not want.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Ask for a room on a high floor to avoid traffics noise. Traffics around hotel can be bad at times.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

I always stay here. I was lucky to get a 10th floor room but it was just as noisey as my 5th floor rooms in the past. Great value despite the noise and 28$ parking fee.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a very spacious, comfortable room & the restaurant downstairs was DELICIOUS! Good selection of beer, also!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very clean facility. The only problem with this excellent Hotel is the parking fee at an additional $30.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We got to the hotel which we stayed at a year ago .. And were td by the front desk girl that parking is 28.00 per day ... Last year it was free ... I told her this and she gave me a story about parking is not controlled by them etc.. The valet person came by and my husband asked him how much it was to valet park .. It was 24.00 per day .. Then because […] now I am furious at the front desk girl ... The valet guy says well you can park for 9.00 a day .. Omg ok so we go up to our room and walk in and it reeks of smoke .. So I call down to the front desk and get the same girl who says the hotel is fully booked and we need to keep in the reeking room as she does not have another double room for us . The housekeeping person is now in our room and going to spray a "refreshing" spray .. The housekeeper says .. Just a moment you can go into this other room "which just became available " .. We walk into the other room and it is fine .. But really that girl at the front desk was not helpful .. Not knowledgeable and the housekeeper knew more than she did.. On the plus side the shampoos and spa essentials smell fab Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It's over the mass turnpike"
We drove under this hotel and thought it looked a bit dingy and old but when we actually went in it was surprisingly clean and renovated! The room was spacious and clean and the bed was comfortable. Perfect for the price, best deal we could find in Boston.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"over billed us-"
I cannot believe a premier hotel can get the billing wrong and the staff being rude about correcting the bill.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Proximity to downtown Boston"
Downtown hotel prices are ridiculous. This hotel is close to where we wanted to go (driving distance). Easy to get in and out. Nice amenities and the staff was very friendly. Would stay here again when in Boston.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Thank goodness we found this place."
After a 3 hour drive to Boston my family and I found ourselves in one of the worst hotels I've ever been in. We immediately left and went to another one where we had made a reservation. Upon arrival at the second hotel we were told that while we had a confirmation for a room there were no rooms left. We were sent next door to a third hotel who had one […] room left. When we got there we thought we were glad but realized that a water pipe had broken and the water pressure would be "very low" in the morning. Followed by finding out that this room was a smokeing room. We could not have this and off we went again in search of a hotel at midnight. Finally we made a fourth reservation at the crowne plaza and when we arrived we were filled with joy!!! The hotel lobby was clean and orderly. The staff was beyond helpful and even printed out directions to a hospital we needed to visit the next day. He aided us with parking and was in general a delight! We brought our things to the room which was huge and beautiful. It was very clean! There was no smell and no damp feeling like our first room. The beds were comfortable and the shower in the morning had just the right pressure. Overall, while it was a challenge getting there because of the other hotels I was so happy to have found this hotel!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"False advertising & incredibly poor service"
I booked this room, after cobnsulting the hotel's website to make sure that I could arrange for a fold away bed in my room for a young family member. When I got to the hotel I was told by the desk clerks that they were no longer offering fold-away beds in rooms. When I pointed out that the web site states that fold-away are available they simply shrugged […] their shoulders and refused to do anything to try to help. I then politely asked for two adjoining rooms (being fully willing to pay for the cost of a second additional room) and I was told that my room type could not be changed. Again the clerks refused to even try to solve the problem. If it were possible for me to give this hotel a negative number of stars for poor service I would definitely do so. I am a frequent traveler and this is definitely the worst service I have seen at a hotel in over a decade. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"great for a quick stopover"
sitting right over the mass pike , this was great for driving and not having to deal with downtown driving. quick cab or bus gets you into the city. staff we're very friendly and remembered us the next morning. I don't ask much of a hotel but acknowledgement of my existence, and free coffee in the lobby is about all I can ask for . and a free bottle […] if water on checking out was much appreciated considering hotels charge you for everything . my 4 stars is the fact I had to pay for parking - wasn't expecting that .

We are so sorry that the parking was a surprise. We have ensured that our online partners have the up to date parking information to avoid surprises in the future. We hope to see you again the next time you're in town. Kind Regards, Crowne Plaza Newton
Clean, comfortable, very responsive service. Infrastructure is a bit on the old side in terms of the building itself, but they've done well with inside upgrading, although the hallways still have a hint of the old days in the smell of ancient tobacco and low ceilings, etc. But overall, an excellent upgrade of an old building, and excellent service. […] Also, the onsite restaurant/bar (Social) was also excellent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Too much noiseand lights"
OMG --- Hotel build over a freeway !!! Too much noise and lights. We were keep up all night because the blinds did not block out the lights from the highway and there was a false fire alarm in the morning (0600) which was inconvenent. I would have never stayed there if I knew what I know now. In addition, I was told that there was no shuttle service […] and saw one in the morning - somebody is not telling the truth. The front desk was very professional and kind. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Crowne Plaza Boston - Newton Dear Felix, Thank you so much for your comments and taking the time to share your experience with us. We certainly try our best to share our location prior to guests staying with us, but understand that this sometimes gets lost in the shuffle of booking a room and are truly sorry it was not what you anticipated. To top it off, we certainly understand that a fire alarm early in the morning isn't ideal. Please know, that while we regret the inconvenience, as with any public building, the maintenance of keeping a fire system up to date sometimes results in inconvenient false alarms and we value our guest safety above all else. We're pleased to hear about the great impression our front desk team left you with. In regard to the shuttle, we do not currently offer a hotel shuttle service for general use, but do have one that is used to transport crew members at predetermined times. Please accept our apologies for the confusion and we assure you we in no way meant to mislead you. Again, we thank you for your feedback. Kindly, Crowne Plaza Newton
"If sleep is important ..."
The air conditioning unit was SO loud ... but you can get used to it as long as it stays on ... the only problem is it turns on and off and because it is so loud, when it comes back on it wakes you up ... OR ... while the air conditioning is off ... the traffic (because the hotel literally was built over the Mass Turnpike) driving underneath the building […] wakes you up ... and we were on the 12th (top) floor.

We hope you'll consider visiting us again and that your enjoyed your time in Boston. Kindly, Crowne Plaza Newton
"Checking our Boston colleges"
Were told we would have two queen beds but had two doubles. The beds were uncomfortable to start with, this made it worse. Bathroom sink had such limited counter space that toiletries had to be moved into room. There were NO towel bars to hang up towels after use. The valet parking was not working well, on Friday night there was no one on duty. It was […] difficult to find the valet every time we came or went and we had to have a long discussion about how much we owed due to a mix up with the valet system.

Response by Crowne Plaza Boston - Newton Dear Barbara, We are so sorry to hear that you had difficulties on your visit - please know that your feedback matters to us and we appreciate your comments. We have since improved the valet process as this is a relatively new service for us and we are still working out the details. Your feedback is very helpful in helping us ensure a seamless parking experience. Take care and best wishes on your college hunt. Kind Regards, Crowne Plaza Newton
"Clean and comfortable, helpful staff"
The hotel was very nice and clean and well appointed. Beds were comfortable. Not complaints about the room at all. They have someone on staff at the entrance to assist with questions and get a taxi etc. It is literally over the highway. We stayed on the 10th floor and had no problem with traffic noise. The work out room is over the highway & you can […] watch traffic go by. We thought there was a subway stop nearby because there is a T stop across the street, but what we didn't know was that the subway is called the T, but also the buses that link to the subway are also part of the T system. You can take a bus from near the hotel to the subway for $2.50 I believe and about a 30 minute ride. It's a short drive to the Newton Centre train stop, but parking there is very limited, so most times, for the 4 of us, we took a taxi to Newton Centre and paid about $13.00. Because of that, the hotel did lower my parking fees when I complained about paying $26.00 per day just to get to the subway. We used the subway a lot. It was very easy to get wherever we needed to go - mainly center of Boston, Fenway Park. I would stay there again since the hotel rate and the comfort offset the minor inconvenience with the subway. Just required some planning on our part. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Hotel is in a nice spot thats in walking distance of catching the buses to Harvard Square. Rooms are quite comfy, housekeeping is at work EARLY. Knocking on the door at like 8 or 9am..which was like the only downside.

"Convenient location but with some real drawbacks"
We had reserved 2 rooms for three nights each and arrived to check in at 7:30 pm. The reception staff told us that our rooms would not be ready for at least two hours because a very large party of people had been given permission to check out at 9:00 pm that night. There were at least a dozen of us, all with reservations, who were asked to wait anywhere […] from 45 minutes to 3 hours until they were able to get the rooms ready. The staff were incredibly apologetic and did their best to make us comfortable while waiting - complimentary beverages, offered us free food, etc, but it made for a very long night, particularly for our young children. The other problem is that the hotel is literally on top of I-90 and thus you hear traffic all night. We did our best to compensate by running the AC on full blast which DID help. Too bad because otherwise a great hotel. Clean, well appointed, helpful and kind staff, comfortable beds and mattresses, great shower and nice soaps in the bathroom.

Response by Crowne Plaza Boston - Newton Dear Travelling Mama, Thank you so much for your comment and for sharing your very helpful feedback. We are so sorry that you had to wait as we know how difficult that can be in general, let alone with young children. We are truly sorry that you were inconvenienced. We hope we have another chance to welcome you to our hotel and please know we do offer sound machines and ear plugs upon request to help minimize highway noise and help our guests have a more comfortable night. Kindly, Crowne Plaza Newton
Room service was horrible. Needs to improve on that. The 28.00 a day parking charge was way to high, although what are your choices...meter parking? On the plus side, it was a nice hotel. I wasn't happy with Route 90 literally passing underneath my room.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Crowne Plaza Boston - Newton Dear Guest, I appreciate you sharing this experience with us. I am so sorry that our room service was not up to your expectations. Our parking garage is privately owned, therefore we must charge the $28.00 fee. I apologize that your room was directly over the highway and I would love to have the opportunity to welcome you back again and accommodate you the very best we can to ensure that your stay is nothing but perfect. Thank you again for taking the time to share this with us, we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
"A little disappointing...but worth the traffic."
We had a very pleasant stay at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Newton, MA. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms very spacious. The hotel is very comfortable and very clean. The whole hotel was very nice. The only thing that we were really disappointed on was: A) How expensive the breakfast was and that there was no continental breakfast. The breakfast […] wasn't all that great. B) The view was not the greatest. Our room(s) overlooked and went over the interstate. Not that great of a view. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I had to cancel my plans unexpectedly, and not only did they refuse to give me even a partial refund when I called 1 day in advance to cancel the reservation, they kept me on hold for 13 minutes, and were impolite once I finally had a chance to speak with someone. I would NOT recommend dealing with the Crown Plaza hotel, you can do better!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"TERRIBLE, BUT THANKFULLY SHORT, EXPERIENCE"
WE DID NOT STAY AT YOUR HOTEL. FROM MY PERSPECTIVE YOU HAVE FALSELY ADVERTISED THIS PROPERTY AND DEMANDED PAYMENT IN FULL BEFORE WE ACTUALLY GOT TO SEE THIS TERRIBLE HOTEL. YOU SUGGESTED THAT THE HOTEL ROOM PAYMENT WAS NON REFUNDABLE, WHICH WONT BE THE CASE ACCORDING TO AMERICAN EXPRESS. YOUR HOTEL IS BUILT OVER A TURNPIKE AND A TRAIN. THE TRAIN RUNS […] DIRECTLY UNDER YOUR FEET WHEN STANDING AT THE FRONT DESK. THE ROOM SMELLED OF SMOKE COVERED/MASKED WITH CHEMICAL PRODUCT, WHICH PERMEATED THE ENTIRE BUILDING. THERE WAS NO WAY I WOULD STAY, SO WE WERE FORCED TO MOVE TO ANOTHER HOTEL, WHICH COULD NOT ACCOMMODATE OUR FULL STAY – SO WE WERE FORCED TO TRAVEL TO THE CAPE FOR ONE NIGHT. THIS SITUATION COST ME TWICE WHAT I HAD BUDGETED AND CAUSED GREAT INCONVENIENCE TO ME AND MY FAMILY. TERRIBLE – ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. THE ONLY HIGH LIGHT WAS THE YOUNG LADY WHO TRIED TO HELP US. SHE SHOULD MOVE TO A PROPERTY MORE ALIGNED WITH THE QUALITY OF HER SERVICE. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Only facility in town"
This was the only facility close to the location of my event and I expected a Crown Plaza to be very good...NOT. The housekeeping was hit or miss..somedays it was never vacuumed and papers, blankets thrown on the floor. Most of the staff at the desk were virtually useless in helping w questions about directions, public transportation etc. and most were […] significantly less than friendly. The hotel desperately needs a concierge. I thought some prices were outrageous i.e. $28 per day for parking. Food in their little bistro was really pretty good. Rooms were in good condition and beds were comfortable but our room was directly over the Mass Pike and the nose was non stop even though we were on the 8th floor. Overall it was not the classy, positive experience I anticipated.. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel, but beware of parking"
I thought the hotel room itself was nice and bed was comfortable. Being from out of town and not familiar with the area, it was a little tricky to figure out what lane to be in off of I-90 to get to hotel. I missed it the first time and had to loop back around. My biggest disappointment with the hotel was that I was not aware that I would be charged […] $26.00 a day for parking. I never recall seeing that point listed on the hotels.com listing for the hotel. If you are comparing other hotels please be aware this one will cost you an extra $26 a night over the advertised price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Response by Crowne Plaza Boston - Newton Dear Ken - thank you for the kind words. We appreciate you taking your time and sharing your experience with us. We look forward to welcoming you back.
The room was smaller than I thought it was going to be for a queen. But overall, it was an okay place to rest our heads while exploring Boston. They do charge $28 for parking so be prepared if you are driving and count that into your budget. We drove into Boston and also had to pay for parking there so neither of us were happy about paying for parking […] twice for one day. You can tell the hotel staff are tired of explaining the whole parking situation as I got a pretty curt answer when I asked why the parking rate was so high (and it is for a hotel that's not in downtown Boston). I think I would have been okay with pay $28 if it was in downtown because I wouldn't have needed to move my car. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"no fridge in the room"
i enjoyed my stay, except for one thing: there's no fridge in the room. You can get a fridge delivered to your room for $15, but I didn't feel like spending an extra $15 for fridge. Used the ice bucket instead, for storage of milk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location - decent hotel"
The reviews of the hotel online were quite accurate. The location is perfect - easy to access the Turnpike (its right above it) for easy entry to Boston and to suburbs. The noise could have been an issue however I asked for a room on a higher floor and slept just fine. The check in staff was very welcoming. The exercise room as well equipped. The overall […] condition of the hotel is a bit run down. The carpet in the hallways and elevator has seen better days. The cleaning staff was quite efficient- knocking on doors by 8:00 a.m. Overall the hotel is a good value for what you get. I'd stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overnight Stay was Good"
Overall the hotel was fine. Clean room, good amenities. Live band in the bar Friday night. The only negative I would say is that everywhere it says overnight parking is $9 (even in the hotel literature in the room), but they jacked it up to $28 on a busy Friday night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
