Rated 5 out of 5 by Rod58 Staff was very accommodating
We have visited at this property for over 30 years. This years experience was the best!
The South tower was closed so we were upgraded to a nicer room (suite). Michelle at the front desk noticed that it was my birthday and also sent a a desert/fruit tray to the room as a surprise.
That is why we continue to come back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mike168 Disappointed!
Parking was a fortune ($139 per day for self park), front desk clerk wasn't very friendly. The hospitality was a joke, cheese & crackers. Had to have my room moved three times due to hotel mechanical problems. No bell man was sent to help with luggage. I was very surprised this was a SPG recommendation. Stay somewhere else!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Smith38 Very small room
Room they gave me was extremely small. Had to beg for a king, which they finally gave me a queen. Had my spouse with me but they really did not seem to care. At 250 a night, big rip off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Charlieboohoo Tired & unhelpful
I bookeda Club room and arrvived to be told the Club was closed but no change to room rate! I could however sit in the public areas should I wish to!! The rooms and communal areas were tired and the staff in the bar area rude. The clerks on the reception desk were less than helpful and perfuntory in tone and outlook. Grim!

Great staff and great Boston location. Hotel elevators create a delay though. Try your best to be on floors 26 - 29 as they have express elevators. As a platnium member was expecting to be on those floors but just did not work out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jack7490 Appreciated upgrade
Really appreciated the upgrade to a suite. After client visit, it was very nice to visit with family and enjoy Mike's Pastry dessert watching the skyline. Hotel staff was helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.
Won't eat breakfast in hotel restaurant again because coffee was undrinkable and prices were absurdly high.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SNerd The worst experience in Sheraton
I was trying to talk with necessary people about my mis-booking at the hotel, the answer was nothing that they can do. I will try contacting hotel once more but not hoping anything will happen.
Also there were a lot of mistakes in the service, communication was bad, there was even no shampoo/body wash when arrived.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Johnnygull57 Fix the bathroom please
Hi, overall the room was fine, but the bathroom, beyond being really small, needs some repair work. Looks like the room above it had a big flood and the damage to the wall above the toilet is very obvious. Ceiling's a mess as is the wall paper where it meets the ceiling. Really unnecessary for a major hotel chain.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TAD21 Terrible experience for families with young children
- Room not ready for children despite pre requests, a temporary crib arrived 2 hours after check in (at 11pm) despite multiple calls to guest services. This was after a 6 hour transatlantic flight, exhausting.
- Never enough people on reception, 12 desks and never more than 2 people maning them, long lines and waits to get anything done or see anyone.
- Receptionists rude and surly (most of time). Did not look to solve problems, i.e. no adaptors in reception OR shop, it was MY problem. A kind guest stepped in at the end to help out...
- 30mins to get car in the morning from valet, nightmare when you have young kids
- You have to pay for internet, daily rate only available and per device....
- No BBC news on TV, can't be considered a business hotel without
Overall a big conference factory floor with no or little personal attention to guests needs. Well overpriced for such poor quality of service, go to a motel you'll save yourself or your company a lot of time and money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NewEnglandTour Recommendation
We stayed in this hotel for 2 days during our New-England-Tour. The room was nice & clean and the view spectacular!
It's in the middle of the City - the Trolley stops in front of the hotel --> very good for tourists.
The food was delicious.
Just one little criticism: it was very cold in the lobby (air-con)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Robin42 A little disappointed w room
Staff and service was wonderful at hotel. I was disappointed with room on north tower. As a star wood preferred floor it was nothing to write home about. Tower is old. Our bathroom had peeling paint from ceiling and vent in bathroom was filthy. Never cleaned. Just not what I expect when I stay at Sheraton

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susan66 Most everything was fine
Everything was wonderful-service, room. However, I would like to make one suggestion, even though I opted for the green approach to my linens a couple of days, I would have appreciated that someone remove dirty glasses that were in the room. Otherwise I had no complaints. The staff was wonderful as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JayJac Needs process improvement...
My res said 'plez have rollaway in room for VERY late arrival' since we have a young child. Res agent said they'd note it on the res...
I called from car 2 hours prior to 12:30AM arrival and asked 'plez have rollaway in room for VERY late arrival'. They said they'd handle.
When I arrived, desk clerk said rollaway was IN THE ROOM. Wife went to room while I parked the car and called me from the room and, guess what? NO ROLLAWAY IN ROOM!!! Had to wait 20 min. #Now you can see why we want rollaway in room for young child after 6 hour drive.# We rec'd 10,000 free SPG pts. 'for our troubles'.
Also, were told upon arrival that the club lounge had breakfast 'till 11am. Was 10am instead since it was Friday, not Saturday. #We rec'd free breakfast in restaurant, thank you.#
Since I didn't valet my car, I didn't have enter/exit privileges from pkg garage which I found out after-the-fact.
Really, free pts. and free breakfast wasn't the point, ...but thank you. That all helped alleviate 'things'.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Locust Good facility
Usually great rooms and service. This time however the room had a odd smell, plaster over dry wall was peeling and area's of missin plaster. Mold on some area of old pink tiles in the shower
The living area of the room was great (except for the ordor), and the staff and common facility was great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TXtraveller Nice Hotel - Good Ammenities - Staff not the friendliest
We came for a conference at the Hynes convention center. The hotel met our expectations for being an upper end hotel. Our only draw back was the front desk staff (not all but most of them).
The doormen, cleaning staff were friendly. The front desk staff (who get paid to be courteous) were not.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KM12 Poor TV
The TV service in the room is very disappointing. While the set itself is a large flat screen the cable channels are low resolution stretched improperly on the screen. In addition the selection of cable channels is minimal, reception is poor, and there is no channel number mapping provided.

From check in to check out and in between, the Sheraton Boston feels like home away from home! Location is perfect to get to everything. When checking in you are greeted with a smile and top notch service! The breaksfast staff are awesome and attentive!!! WE just love the Sheraton Boston!

Stayed at Sheraton for 3 nights for business. The gym and facilities were nice and well maintained, however, the room I received was poor. The carpet was old, walls / wallpaper needed repair and the bathroom was very outdated. The club lounge was nice with a good view over Charles river.

We had a wonderful time and a Great stay. This Hotel is one of my Boston favorites. Great location, Club lounge was superb, great continental breakfast-overall an A stay. The only negative was we really missed the hot tub that used to be near the pool-hope you bring that back. Thanks.

The hotel staff was very helpful with making our stay so wonderful. They were always a phone call away and very helpful with navigating the town. We had a great time in Boston and never once had to worry about our room. We used the pool everyday and the room service was delicious.

Overall the hotel stay was ok. However I had a dirty unused face towel in my room that I threw on the bathroom floor to change. Hotel room service took the same unused face towel, folded it and place it back on the rack to use.
I reported the incident to the front desk manager.

We go every year for a dance competition and stay here. Love it....This year noticed my room had trash, looked like it had not been cleaned. Reported it and someone game to the room immediately and moved furniture and vacuumed the room. That was our only issue. Love this place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Koala7 This hotel is at a great location
This hotel is located near the Prudential Center, a great place for food and shopping. It's close to the subway station. Yet the sink of the bathtub was blocked and water could not go down. I literally picked out and threw away the hair stuck inside by myself! This is awful!
