We had a great stay at this hotel during our trip to Boston. The staff was very polite and welcoming. The room is spacious, comfortable and its view is amazing. The restaurant offers a seasonal menu. Our meal was delicious. A great choice if you are interested in harbors and food!

I originally booked this hotel directly with property, however, as we approached the arrival date of a weekend break ,I cancelled the reservation and re-booked through Expedia who were offering the same room type at a reduced price which was well worth the effort. On arrival to Boston, I decided to try the river taxi (pre-paid online) that takes you...

While my dealings with the actual hotel staff so far have been wonderful, I can't say the same about the spa. I booked a family getaway for my family as a Christmas gift and wanted to arrange spa streatments for the 4 of us one afternoon during our stay. Over the last 10 days, I have called the spa about...

Hotel cleanliness is a MUST for me. BHH exceeded that expectation above and beyond. The rooms were spotless, odorless and of superior comfort. I have never, in any hotel I have stayed at, felt comfortable with the bathroom, bed linens and carpeting as I did with BHH. That said, the room was well appointed, the hotel was of Five star...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
