I love a good airport hotel, and the Hilton at the Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) is pretty much perfect. For an airport hotel I mean.
It’s conveniently attached to the airport. It’s clean, fairly quiet, and the views of the city (and the airport) are spectacular. The price can be spectacular as well, but let’s forget about that for a moment and focus on the overall experience instead…
A full review of my most recent stay at the Hilton Boston Logan Airport Hotel
I’ve stayed at this hotel twice now, and both experiences were pretty good. Neither experience was perfect, but it wasn’t bad enough to make me never want to go back.
The Logan Airport Hilton is located on the southwest side of the airport connected directly to Terminal A – which is convenient if you’re flying Delta (because that’s the terminal they use). It should be noted that you can easily walk to this hotel from any other terminal.
You’ll actually walk through a majority of the ground floor of this property before reaching the lobby if you’re coming from the airport. Once there, you’ll still have some walking to do, as the check-in desk is located on the far west end of the lobby away from everything else. Pro tip: wear comfortable walking shoes.
The check-in staff was happy and extremely helpful the first time I stayed at this hotel. My most recent visit wasn’t quite as pleasant. The lady checking me in was obviously miffed about something and her demeanor was abrasive to say the least.
Getting to my room
Anyone familiar with Hilton airport hotels aren’t going to be surprised with the majority of the pics in this review. This is very much a Hilton, and it becomes obvious during the sterile and uneventful ride up the elevators. The long walk down the hallways to the guest rooms isn’t any better.
I upgraded to a corner room on an upper level floor when I was checking in for my stay online the day before. Never mind that I specifically chose a 10th floor room (which they let me do on the app). The lady checking me and gave me a room on the 8th floor without even apologizing for it.
It’s worth noting that choosing a corner room is the usually best option for anyone wanting the most space. I recently chose a corner room at the New Orleans Airport Hilton, and it was just as large as the one you see in these pics. Spacious rooms FTW.
If you’re wondering if it’s worth paying a little extra for a room with a view at the Logan Airport Hilton, I can assure you that it is. My room was facing both the airport and the city – and it was easily one of the best views I’ve ever had from a hotel room.
I have only three words to describe the bathroom: “Hilton” and “airport hotel.” Basically, if you’ve ever stayed in any other Hilton airport hotel anywhere in the world (except the Frankfurt Airport Hilton – that was nice), the bathrooms will be of no surprise. They’re functional, sterile, and completely void of any character.
Restaurants and cafés
There are two on-site restaurants located in the lobby. Between them is a kiosk for grabbing a quick cup of coffee and a snack (such as muffins or pastries). I had breakfast in the Berkshire’s Restaurant, and it was pretty good. Exorbitantly expensive, but good.
Pros and cons of the Hilton at the Boston Logan International Airport
I have stayed at this hotel multiple times already, and I am prepared to do it again. It’s expensive, but it is convenient. Which is a perfect segue into my list of pros and cons:
- The location (attached directly to Terminal A) is excellent. No matter what terminal you’re flying in or out of, it’s an extremely convenient option.
- It’s surprisingly quiet. I slept soundly during both of my visits, with the only noise I heard being people in the rooms above mine stomping like elephants.
- The views of the airport are spectacular. You’ll get a nice look at both the airport and the downtown city skyline.
- Holy hell is it ever expensive! It’s going to be really hard to find a good deal for a one night stay at this hotel, which makes it the most expensive Boston Airport hotel (by far).
- The televisions aren’t Internet enabled (which means no Netflix or YouTube). Boo!
- Although the rooms appear to be squeaky clean, I developed some sort of a rash over my entire body after my last visit which was annoying to say the least. I can’t say with 100% certainty it was because of germs or bacteria in my room, but the timing of it was highly suspicious.
