The Boston Park Plaza Hotel & Towers is a former Statler Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts built in 1927 by hotelier E.M. Statler. A prototype of the grand American hotel, it was called a "city within a city". It was the first hotel in the world to offer in-room radio in every room.
The hotel operates the Castle at Park Plaza in the former Armory of the First Corps of Cadets building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. The building contains a Smith & Wollensky steakhouse.
