Hilton is back in Boston’s Back Bay neighbourhood – and means business.
The global hospitality leader has reopened the historic Hilton Boston Park Plaza, featuring more than 1,000 rooms, two restaurants, a variety of amenities and 70,000 square feet of meetings and events space.
Purchased in the mid-20th century by Conrad Hilton, the Park Plaza represented Hilton’s first hotel in Boston and was later named the Statler Hilton. After spending almost four decades under the management of other hotel groups, it has rejoined the Hilton Hotels & Resorts portfolio, bringing back Hilton’s benchmark of hospitality in the area.
“We are delighted to welcome back one of our first Boston properties, Hilton Boston Park Plaza, to the Hilton family,” comments Danny Hughes, President for the Americas region at Hilton.
“The hotel’s exceptional location in the heart of the city, coupled with the property’s friendly service and thoughtful amenities, offer the perfect homebase for every traveller and any occasion.
“Since Conrad Hilton purchased the property in 1954, we’ve built upon his vision to fill the earth with the light and warmth of hospitality. Today, we are proud to welcome travellers at more than 60 Hilton hotels across ten brands in Boston.”
A Hilton icon returns
The architecturally-impressive property is also steps away from Boston Public Garden, the Theater District and Arlington station, offering easy connectivity to the city’s most treasured attractions.
Originally conceived by hotelier E.M. Statler as a city within a city, the Park Plaza originally opened in 1927 as The Statler Hotel. It was purchased by Conrad Hilton in 1954 as part of the Statler chain, before being renamed as Statler Hilton.
In 1976, the hotel changed hands to the Irving M. Saunders family and was again renamed to Boston Park Plaza Hotel & Towers.
Throughout its rich history, this Boston icon has played host to an array of dignitaries, US Presidents, celebrities and cultural events.
“Nearly 70 years since Hilton first arrived in Boston, we’re thrilled to welcome back visitors to this iconic hotel,” adds Leonard Gooz, Brand Leader at Hilton Hotels & Resorts.
“As we continue to grow Hilton Hotels & Resorts to more than 600 hotels welcoming guests globally, we are excited to add Hilton Boston Park Plaza to the brand’s portfolio.
“We look forward to honouring the hotel’s legacy and serving as a destination for the next generation of travellers, galas and events for years to come.”
