Boston Park Plaza Receives AAA's Four Diamond Rating
Posted October 17, 2016
$100 million in renovations and enhancements results in prestigious AAA award.
BOSTON, MA (October 17, 2016) - Boston Park Plaza, which completed a massive $100 million renovation in June 2016, is pleased to announce that it has received the coveted AAA Four Diamond designation. This is the first time in its nearly 90-year history that Boston Park Plaza has attained this prestigious rating. Hotels at this level are committed to providing every guest with a personalized experience and attentive service in comfortable, high-quality surroundings, according to AAA. Only 1,587 North American hotels currently hold this Diamond rating.

Boston Park Plaza is now part of a select group of establishments within North America. “This rating acknowledges the hard work and dedication of our staff, the elevated physical upgrades of our hotel space, and an enhanced service program that delivers unwavering commitment to superior hospitality, ensuring that our service levels reflect and support the new Boston Park Plaza,” said Jonathan Crellin, Managing Director. “We are honored to be recognized as a AAA Four Diamond hotel and are committed to exceeding guest expectations and providing a premier travel experience.”

Boston Park Plaza’s recently finished renovation added all-new high-end amenities like STRIP by Strega, a 5,700-square–foot, high-energy steakhouse concept by Boston-based restaurateur Nick Varano; DavidBartonGym and Cyc Fitness Boston - a 20,000-square-foot state-of-the-art fitness center that includes complimentary gym access for hotel guests, plus an array of paid fitness classes; and an on-site FedEx Business Center offering guests the convenience of premium printing, packing and shipping from the hotel’s Mezzanine Level. In September, Leica Camera opened the doors to a Leica Store and Leica Gallery, which now occupies over 3,000 square feet of space with the hotel’s lobby.

“AAA is pleased to recognize Boston Park Plaza as a Four Diamond hotel,” said Michael Petrone, director of AAA Inspections & Diamond Ratings. “To maintain the exceptional standards required for this rating on a daily basis is an outstanding achievement. AAA Four Diamond establishments are attentive to guests’ needs and consistently deliver memorable travel experiences.”

In early 2017, Starbucks Reserve will open a signature 2,500-square-foot store at Boston Park Plaza. Through the renovation, the hotel has also gained an additional 6,000 square feet of fully-renovated professional meeting and pre-function space, bringing its grand total to 50,480 square feet.

Boston Park Plaza is managed by Highgate, a premier hospitality investment and management company whose growing portfolio includes more than 100 properties in gateway cities worldwide.

Boston Park Plaza Completes $100 Million Renovation
Posted June 13, 2016
Famous for its industry firsts, Boston Park Plaza is reborn as class-leading hospitality and lifestyle destination
Boston Park Plaza is pleased to announce the completion of a comprehensive, multi-year, $100 million renovation and restoration project. The extensive transformation includes the complete overhaul of the hotel’s 1,060 guestrooms and corridors, main entrances and lobby, meeting spaces, mezzanine levels, the addition of an all-new library room, and the replacement of all furniture and fixtures. The renovation project became official on May 7, 2016.

“This rejuvenation project has completely transformed Boston Park Plaza into a self-contained nucleus that pairs top-notch hospitality, world-class dining and high-end fitness amenities with the modern comforts and conveniences that today’s travelers have come to expect, all the while offering a uniquely Boston feel,” said Jon Crellin, managing director, Boston Park Plaza. “Boston Park Plaza was thoughtfully redesigned with today’s modern travelers and executives in mind, and the hotel now truly reflects the city of Boston’s standing as a world-class destination known for its rich history and modern innovations.”

New high-end amenities include STRIP by Strega, a 5,700-square–foot, high-energy steakhouse concept by Boston-based restaurateur Nick Varano; DavidBartonGym and Cyc Fitness Boston - a 20,000-square-foot state-of-the-art fitness center that includes complimentary gym access for hotel guests, plus an array of paid fitness classes; and an on-site FedEx Business Center offering guests the convenience of premium printing, packing and shipping from the hotel’s Mezzanine Level. Additionally, in late 2016, Starbucks will open a signature 2,500 square-foot store, and Leica Camera will occupy over 3,000 square feet with a Leica Store and a Leica Gallery, both within the hotel lobby. Through the renovation, Boston Park Plaza has also gained an additional 6,000 square feet of fully-renovated professional meeting and pre-function space, bringing its grand total to 50,480 square feet. Boston Park Plaza’s storied ballroom has also been fully updated to feature a stunning new charcoal and ivory palette.

Designed by Sudbury, Mass.-based Parker Torres Design, Inc., Boston Park Plaza now evokes a youthful, innovative and international vibe that complements the hotel’s iconic architectural elements. The new lobby of the Boston Park Plaza boasts a sophisticated gray and white color palette, dramatic floor-to-ceiling columns encased in ceramic, new flooring, adjustable LED lighting, and sleek guest check-in stations designed to create a more intimate experience between hotel staff and guests. Located within the renovated lobby area is Off The Common, Boston Park Plaza’s new restaurant and lounge, which offers a sophisticated and contemporary setting to enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, light bites and hand-crafted libations. Designed to satisfy the needs of many, Boston Park Plaza’s newly added library room can act as the ideal shared workspace and reading area, or simply serve as an inviting place to visit with friends.

As guests enter the hotel’s revitalized guestrooms and suites, which boast all-new lighting and much-improved acoustics, they’ll be welcomed by a handsome, tailored and chic palate of charcoal, caramel and camel tones that complement all-new stone-topped wooden cabinetry, custom upholstered headboards, and warmly-hued carpeting. Adding a crisp, fresh touch to the highly-appointed guestrooms are completely renovated bathrooms featuring white tile surrounds, custom vanities, over-sized mirrors and large porcelain tile flooring. As a nod to Boston Park Plaza’s iconic design details, each room’s crown molding has been fully refinished in order to preserve signature elements that pair with the hotel’s new smart and sophisticated appearance. Additional technology enhancements to each guestroom include the addition of Smart TVs with streaming capabilities via SoniCast (powered by Chromecast), which allows guests to sync their mobile devices to the TV and customize their video content.

Since purchasing the property, Sunstone Hotel Investors, Inc. has performed a series of renovations to repair and restore all structural elements, which includes replacing the hotel’s roof; repairing the exterior façade; replacing sidewalk surrounds; replacing the hotel’s signature two-story decorative windows; modernization of the elevator systems; and the installation of a state-of-the-art HVAC system that provides individual climate control for every guestroom, meeting space and common area.

Boston Park Plaza is managed by Highgate, a premier hospitality investment and management company whose growing portfolio includes more than 100 properties in gateway cities worldwide.
