The service at Boston Harbor Hotel is outstanding. Every individual I encountered provided a "WOW" experience. Welcoming, attentive, caring and sincere--very impressive! The hotel itself is quite beautiful and the room was spacious and charming. Views of the city were gorgeous. From the hotel, it's an easy walk to the North End or Quincy Market, and there are plenty of...

I attended a baby shower thrown for military moms by the March of Dimes and various other companies. We didn't stay at the hotel, but the hotel staff served us brunch in the Wharf Room, which had an amazing view of the Boston Harbor. It was an amazing experience and I am so thankful to the March of Dimes and...

Stayed for 3 nights. Room was clean and reasonably comfortable. Fresh ice supplied each evening during turndown service (a plus). Pillows were heavy and too hard, and the mattress was medium (I prefer something firmer). Bathroom had a basic walk-in shower but no bath; Shower had just enough pressure. Good towels and sheets. Duvet (which I prefer) on bed rather...

We arrived at the hotel for a business dinner for around 150 people. When we entered no one was there to tell us how to get to the correct space. We all arrived in a big bus, so this would not have been difficult to do. There were two bars set up with only one bartender each. This made for...

We would have given this hotel 5 stars, however, our room (1024) was unfortunately very noisy. People would get out of the elevator and talk loudly and laugh at all hours of the night. Nothing anyone could really do about it, except us. One night at 1.10 am, I opened the door and asked the noisy guests to keep it...

I have tried several luxury hotels in Boston for various nights out. This hotel has made it to the top of my list. Everything was 100% class. Top notch service.

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.
