Staying at Logan Airport Hilton Before Flight

j

Hi everyone,

Heading off to Scottsdale for vacation next Thursday morning so we're staying at the airport overnight to avoid the hectic commute. i've looked over the dining options in the hotel but I'm not sure about the quality of the food in any of the options, including room service. I've also googled delivery options on several of the services websites. Does anyone have any positive experiences with either delivery to or restaurants in the Hilton?

Thanks,
JoJo

    I often stay at the Hilton for early flights as well.... I usually will get my Santarpios fix either via cab or hotel shuttle.... or shuttle to easy rail line into the city... the food at the pub in the Hilton is mediocre at best.... wont get pizza like Santarpios in Scottsdale (or in Psmouth NH where I live)..... ;)

      I like Santarpio's but keep in mind you can get good pizza in Scottsdale. Pizzeria Bianco has been named by some critics as the best pizza in the US..I'd have eaten there but it's nearly impossible to get in..3-4 hour wait when I was there a few weeks ago. When I go back, I plan on trying again.

      Near Logan, in addition to Santarpios, you have Rino (Italian), Rincon Limeno (Peruvian) in E Boston, a short cab ride and a bit longer cab ride is Floating Rock in Revere Beach...fantastic Cambodian food..Chinatown like atmosphere,byo.. great food. .few stops on the T. You won't find any Cambodian food in Scottsdale.:)

        Floating Rock closes early (close the doors at 8 IIRC) if that's a factor. Rincon has a bar. Both good picks, both on the Blue Line.

      Wow, great thread both for food and for the early-bird idea.

        It would be a short taxi ride to either Neptune Oyster in the North End or to Sportello and Drink in Fort Point - either would be a terrific night out that is not likely to be similar to options in Scottsdale.

          The food is almost inedible at the Hilton. If you weren't going to Scottsdale, I would recommend Angela's Cafe as a short cab ride. I would also agree with The other suggestions of pizza at Santarpio's.

            Thanks to all of you for your wonderful suggestions and to 9lives for the photos from the 2 restaurants. The food at both looks amazing. I'm going to let my (adult) daughter choose from the options.
