Location is ideal! You can easily walk to all the major attractions in Boston. It would have been nice to have a refrigerator in the room.
We could not use the outdoor area due to an event and we were not informed until we got there
Nice lobby, but this hotel needs a major amount of work! Problems: 1) TVs are analog, which means there is no resolution at all. Very blurry. Like 1998 TVs. Shocking at a so-called 4-star hotel. 2) Air conditioners that are so loud it sounded like we had a 747 revving outside our room. We couldn't adjust the AC except to two temperatures: 68 and 74. 3) No mirror in the room. 4) No refrigerator or mini-bar in the room. 5) No blow dryer. 6) Waited 15 minutes for an elevator, then couldn't get on it was so crowded. 7) Rude, arrogant staff except for Serena, and the day GM, who tried to help but wasn't around to do much until it was too late. Don't stay here. There is so much better around!
Style and general vibe of the hotel. Clean and extremely comfortable rooms. No included coffee/breakfast
Convenient location, very pretty and clean hotel. We had a nice view of the harbor. We had a four-night stay and had to get new room keys 6 times. Housekeeping did not come to our room the day after our arrival. There is no convenience store in hotel. Otherwise it was a great hotel.
I liked the comfort of the bed and the view of the city. I did not like the staff. Bad customer service and do not know how to handle problems in a professional manner. Need more ppl working the front desk, there was a wait to check in.
Clean, modern decor, bath utilities were excellent. Parking cost was too much. Should offer a discount on parking for people who are staying at the hotel.
Nice hotel-good location - clean rooms and white bedding, which I love Valet parking is over $50/night which seems way high
Helpful staff, great location Rooftop pool/bar was noisy late at night; would have liked to have known about it in advance
Location, rooms were beautiful, clean Noisy!! Late night noise from younger people coming back from bars.
Clean and comfortable I did not like that, $300 was held on my credit card for "incidentals" without any notice of this policy. Bad business!!!!!
The employees were excellent and the room super nice and very clean The only thing that was a little tough was being in the room next to the elevator cause we could hear it always
location, comfort, quiet overnight parking does not have to be this expensive
I found the overall experience of staying in the W very relaxing and comfortable.
The front staff and manager were extremely accomodating after having a 2 hour tiff with the booking company I used (Get a Room, you were terrible). The room was clean and contemporary which me and my guests enjoyed. For the price, it was reasonable due to the location right next to the commons and for a saturday night in Boston. Wifi was free and they had speakers to hook up an iPad to play music. Parking was $50 for valet. ~$40 in the surrounding parking lots for overnight.
Wonderful building and facilities. Clean, comfortable. Great location. I have stayed at several Starwood Hotels and usually the W staff is a little bit more hospitable and welcoming. This particular staff was not very welcoming and when I had questions I was met with some interesting attitudes. All in all, great hotel - just think like every hotel somethings can be improved.
Clean, comfortable and in a great location Lobby extremely loud
The hotel was very luxurious and modern. Room was extremely clean. Overall great experiance. I would recommend this hotel too others. The rooms are a bit pricey.
highly service-oriented staff, modern and luxurious styled rooms, rather 5 than 4 stars for the rooms - you feel comfortable in this hotel bathroom: open wall to the room, no bath tube in the single-bed rooms
The w never disappoints. I had quite a pleasant and extraordinary stay. No.
Brand new hotel Staff are not up to the W standard
It is central and quiet; breakfast is good for European taste, staff helpful. Windows of the room were sealed and I could not stand the noise of air conditioning, but in November it was not a major problem to put it off. I asked a very quiet room and I got it on the back, viewing a brick wall just in front. Remark that "Single Twin Room" meant in my case a tiny room with a large single bed, no cupboard, no chair, a drawer with TV on it.
My room was small, but had everything I needed, even a coffee maker. Breakfast in the morning made life very easy. That I could not open a window.
The breakfast nook was overcrowded each day we were there
I was shopping so the room was to small so I left after one night. I had send a package and he never came to me and the did not no anythig about it, but the package did come but never to me (maby stolen)
location, price, breakfast toilet not working, A/C not controllable, old
Helpful Staff and Good Location Shower temperature variable.Phone meter faulty, had messages from prior guests and charged for free calls.
very small rooms but adequate
Great location and good value. Rooms are quiet and staff is quite helpful. Breakfast is included and quality of the towels, soap, shampoo, etc. is better than in most inexpensive hotels. The rooms are clean and the beds are quite comfortable. The rooms are small. The first time I stayed for one night, I had a tiny, cramped room, but on my second visit for 6 nights, I had a room I would call cozy instead of cramped -- small, but certainly big enough for one person to be comfortable. The space in both rooms could be used more efficiently by adding more shelves in both the rooms and bathrooms, plus replacing desks and dressers with ones that are less deep.
As above it was in an ideal safe location within easy walking distance or transport plus places of interest as well as parklands to enjoy and take time out. I had a single room. The bed was really comfortable and housekeeping staff keep the rooms well aerviced and it is very clean. However, it was a small room with very little room for a large case and I had to keep mine on the floor throughout my 3 day stay. Other than that it was fine but not a room I would want to spend time in during the day as no view due to air conditioner being in the window. However it was quiet at night and easy up sleep. I am gluten free and found very little I could eat from breakfast provided, so would eat breakfast out as more options. I enjoyed my stay and would check in again if ever I was in Bodton in the future. It was value for money and that was important to me. My sincere thanks for a friendly and welcoming and well mannered staff .
The staff we met were all friendly and helpful. Boston is a very walkable city and the Milner is a well placed starting point for many of the most important attractions. The 'continental' breakfast is appreciated but involves throwing away a lot of plastic packaging etc which is convenient for the hotel but not helpful to the environment.
I enjoyed my stay and thought that the staff was helpful and genuine. My room was small but adequate. My shower took forever to warm up but there was enough hot water once it did.
Staff very friendly
Its close to everything the hotel didnt have much to offer. No parking. No fridge in the room. Two adults means one bed. Small bathroom. Not allowed to bring your own food and drinks in. Rude service.
The staff member who checked us in refused to accept the arrangements previously agreed to by another associate and the accounting department ( in writing/email). Because a box was inadvertently not checked on our pre-authorization form he dusmissed it completely without first checking with the parties ( whose contact info was on the form) we gave him. Humiliating and a time waster. Terrible customer service.
Staff was friendly. A bit worn, but ok. Expensive for what you got..
Comfortable beds, clean quiet environment, helpful staff. Cable was fuzzy and I would've like to have some kind of on demand service.
The price for this area is quite high, yet with the amenities and proximity to nightlife and points of interest there is a degree of value to this location. My main complaint is the staff. I found them a tad unprofessional. Upon stepping to the front desk the young ladies at the counter seemed less interested in helping visitors than in carrying on a concerted air of disinterest and conversations among themselves. Additionally 2 surly security guards came to the room at 3am about a noise complaint. Their heavy-handed manner was more suitable for a dive bar than relating to adult guests paying upwards of $500 a night. They were clearly not suited to be the first point contact in regard to guest relation. Based on the last situation I doubt I would stay at this location again. Which is sad given i would have used it for family vacations and business occasions.
Very modern and clean. Good services. Best value in the area. Close to the commons.
Location was for us was perfect for us as it was just across from Boston and just 1 stop using the subway to Beacon Hill. We had free valet parking which was one of the key decisions to staying there. The area was super quiet and very green. Although the room was nice. Personally we found the bed to be a little uncomfortable. The free upgrade which came by my rewards status was a welcome surprise but we were surprised that it was directly behind the elevator shaft. Upgrade..not sure. The staff were pleasant when spoken to but were not very engaged with the patrons. There wasn't a lot of choices nearby for restaurants.
Stayed there for a night while we were in town to see a show at the Wilbur Theater right across the street. Very convenient. Clean, modern rooms and polite staff. Would stay again.
The roomwas clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable. The staff were courteous and helpful. The room was small. Like most hotels, the "high-definition" TV was a mirage - an analog signal stretched over a flat panel. For the life of me, I can't understand why hotels will not get high def signals in the rooms.
No hot water in the morning.
Great location, friendly staff, however the rooms were extremely small and you could hear/feel a nightclub somewhere below all night long - from the 8th floor.
