We had a wonderful stay at this hotel last week! Everyone was helpful and polite, the room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. And it was steps away from Fanueil Hall and Quincy Market! Would definitely stay here again the next time we're up in Boston!

You won't believe how beautiful this hotel is! The rooms are tastefully furnished in designer style; the bathrooms are particularly nice. The lobby is very pleasant, with four computers for guests to use. The staff is unfailingly pleasant and very helpful. You're across the street form a subway station (two stops to the airport), and very close to all the...

I have been staying at the Harborside Inn for a number of years when I am in Boston on business. The location is great being situated close to the airport, harbor and downtown high rises. The Harborside is not a full service hotel like a Hyatt or Marriott so don't expect all the extras like a restaurant or gym. However,...

The Harborside Inn is a boutique hotel in a great location in downtown Boston. The rooms are not lavish, but they are clean and have everything you need for a comfortable and efficient stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Within easy walking distance of most of Boston's historic sights, restaurants and pubs. A hotel gem in downtown Boston!

We stayed a few years ago, very nice staff and cute rooms. Exposed brick the rooms is a nice touch! Centrally located to many shops and restaurants. Little bit of a walk for some site seeing but if it's nice out, it's worth the walk. Located very close to the marina as well.

This hotel was a great find. We got a very good deal for staying 3 nights. A 10 minute and $15 taxi ride from the airport, the hotel is located in a great part of Boston. Also a 5 min cab ride to the train station if you have alot of luggage. People say the rooms are small but we...

I was looking for a convenient base with reliable internet, comfortable rooms and dependable staff to call home for 4-5 days during my business stay in Boston - and found a great one in the Harborside Inn. The Inn really does deliver on EVERYTHING it promises. The internet connection is reliable and easy to sign on to. The staff are...

What a lovely surprise to find a terrific hotel in the heart of one of the best parts of Boston, the harbor area. Walking distance to so many attractions, this gem has clean, quiet rooms, convenient parking and a knowledgable very helpful staff all at a remarkably reasonable price. They will be opening a cafe, night spot but I was...

This hotel is only 2 stops from the airport on the subway and this was our second stay at the hotel. The staff were all very helpful. The room was on the small side but clean and tidy. I think it is a nice touch that they have Top 10 Guidebook in the room, which you can use and /...

Absolutely loved my pre-Christmas stay at this hotel. The clean lines of decor remind me of some European hotels. Walk to everything in Boston. Tech savy. Highly recommend. Next trip will stay here again.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
