The Boston Harbor Hotel continues to earn accolades by pampering guests with fine rooms, fine dining, and a standout waterfront location. The architectural grandeur of the hotel's stunning arched entryway opens up to a breathtaking view of the private marina, and its rooftop terrace towers 16 stories over the Financial District. From the harbor stone massages at the Health Club & Spa, to breakfast at the grill on Rowe's Wharf, guests enjoy world-class service and attention. The hotel's sparkling marina provides 34 slips exclusively reserved for guest docking privileges, and excellent dining can be found at the on-site Meritage restaurant.

Central location with great sea views

Mature couple, first time in Boston, so the hotel is excellently positioned for the harbour and the city. Trolley bus tour starting point 5 minutes on foot, Whale watching and harbour cruises all within 10 minutes on foot. We did an "Odyssey" cruise on Sunday lunchtime, which although pricey was an excellent experience. Overall, it felt expensive by European standards, particularly the food and drinks, but you pay for what you get and the quality was very high. The hotel itself is airy, spacious and very comfortable. Harbour view rooms are worth the investment - don't go lower than 8th floor. Mixed feelings about the staff - most were friendly, helpful and absolutely first rate but our overall experience was severely diminished in the restaurant by two instances where being a guest in the hotel did not appear to be relevant.

boston harbor hotel

They put us next to a service elevator and from ll p.m. until around 2 a.m. on our last night they were going in and out. I called and it stopped for a short while, but started up again. I can't understand why they needed to go in and out so many times during the night. We paid a lot of money for a water view room. And we have stayed there many times over the years. VERY UNHAPPY. [...] We had very good rooms in previous stays.

Beautiful, convenient setting

Staff really friendly and accommodating. Would have liked to have a small coffee maker in room for convenience, and there was no where to sit outside and order a drink on its patio. Had to order a meal to sit outside in the chairs to listen to the music or enjoy the view.

Beautiful Harbor View

Spent Fourth of July week in Boston, nothing could be better. This hotel has it all. Beautiful harbor view, free newspapers, fantastic turn down service, most comfortable bed in any hotel ever, within walking distance to everything historic and Chinatown; inside and outside dining, friendly and efficient staff. Thick walls.

GORGEOUS WATERFRONT VIEW

Pros: Super clean, waterfront rooms have spectacular view, staff helpful, professional and cheerful, great location. Cons: For the huge price (about twice what others in area charge) the bathroom was very small with outdated tub, and the overall room decor, while not worn at all, could use an update. No coffee in the room, though you could order "a pot of coffee" from room service $$$$ Also, ridiculous parking charge BEWARE--sign says "Daily Rate $XXX, then in TINY letters "out by 5am" Who's going to be out by 5am??? So they charge you double the day rate after 5am.

Romantic Night in the City

Boston harbor hotel is a wonderful place to take that special someone for a romantic night in the city. The only thing missing was a jacuzzi tub in the room, that would have made it perfect. The staff at this hotel makes you feel like a 1st class traveler. Very luxurious hotel, five stars all the way.
