We had a nice stay at the Marriott custom house highlighted by the walking distance to many tourist attractions and dining options. We did not spend much time in our room but it was clean and nice. If you do not mind some missing amenities like a concierge lounge and swimming pool, this property is a great option for touring...

We booked 2 rooms for 4 nights during the Easter/Boston marathon weekend and we couldn't have enjoyed it more! The location was perfect walking distance to the Quincy Market (literally right outside the doors), the North End, and the Harbor area. It was also very convenient being a mile from bus pickup for the runners and 2 miles from the...

My daughter and I visited Boston for a college trip and stayed three nights here. I've stayed in a variety of hotels over the past 20 years but this one was a bit disappointing. The best feature was by far the central location. Very convenient both to Boston and the airport. It was very easy for the Uber drivers to...

The location can't be beat. The hotel is literally right outside the aquarium T stop. It's also one block from Quincy market and many restaurants. The Custom House is a historic building, and it's easy to find. The observation deck has an incredible view, and the kids enjoyed the pool table and chess in the game room as well as...

This is our 3rd time staying here from exchanging our Puerto Rico timeshare and have had a great time every time! The staff is eager to please, always asking about our activities and taking the time to get to know us. All of the activities are great, they have added some new walking tours that are complementary to the guests....

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.
