Though only built in 1982, Boston Marriott Long Wharf hotel sits within an integral part of Boston's history and the 17th century focal point of Boston's sea trade. Emulating the warehouse-feel of the old city, the diamond structure is matched inside with the geometric lighting and wall design of the Waterline Dining Room. Admire the interiors as you sample some traditional New England seafood platters, or drop by the neighboring bar for a Long Island Iced Tea. During the warmer months, make the most of the pool area, which opens to a sunny terrace with a great view of the harbor.

Neighborhood
The Boston Marriott Long Wharf is right at the nucleus of downtown Boston, beside both historic sites and modern marvels, from the Bunker Hill Monument to the New England Aquarium on the adjacent pier. If you are traveling to Boston on business, the financial district is a brief walk from the hotel. Guests can enjoy Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park next door, or browse the peddlers' wares and street food carts at 250-year-old Quincy Market, just five minutes away.
Hints and tips
North End is a favorite local spot for a casual bite so if a long day's networking is nearly over, head to eateries like aptly-named Neptune Oyster.

More adventurous diners should check out the ever-popular Giacomo's, easily spotted by the long line of customers by the door.

Business Trip with Style

It was fabulous. It is also nice that being this hotel Rewards member, it always feels nice to get extra hospitality (in my case, option to check out late). The only thing was that because I did the booking not directly with the hotel, I lost getting points credited on the hotel stay. This was a surprise since I did not pay much attention to the terms and conditions specific disclaimer in hotel rewards site--before I booked through you. Hence the learning that it pays to do adequated homework. On the whole though it was a nice stay.

Break from law school

We had a very nice stay. Can't wait until all the construction is finished. Only complaint is that no one on the staff apologized for the construction mess and/or offered maybe a discount coupon for our next stay because of the construction noise. That would have been nice.

Take the "T" to the Sam Adams brewery (on the Orange Line). Well worth a few hours.

Great Location

This Hotel is very nicely located, next to shopping, resturants, and the Freedom Trail. It is a little expensive for the quality of the rooms.

Weekend family getway

After an afternoon of walking along the waterfront shops we decided to dine at the hotel restaurant. Our friendly waitress came and took the drink and food order and then proceeded to wait over 90 minutes for burgers and mac-n-cheese. Anyone dining with two small children knows that this is no simple feat. When our food arrived it was cold and dried out as if it was sitting under a heat lamp for the last hour. This was not an isolated incident, our entire dining area was experiencing the same wait. The waitress was very apologetic as she explained there was only one kitchen for the dining room, lounge and the entire hotel room service. Overall this is a great hotel in a excellent location but avoid the in-house food service.

Given the location, take a shot walk to Quincy Market and sample one of the many excellent restaurants and avoid the hotel dining experience.

Boston Marriott Long Wharf Review

We loved our weekend at this hotel. We found the location very central and loved the breakfast package we opted for. Room and hallway cleanliness was so-so but everything else met or exceeded our expectations.

Sonsie on Newbury Street had some of the best mussels we've ever eaten, and bread to dip in them. Not inexpensive but fab location streetside. A very pleasant surprise.

Everything we needed

Great location, clean, staff very attentive. Breakfast buffet wonderful. Could not ask for anything more. Convenient to subway to get to all areas of Boston. Will stay there again and recommend hotel to anyone who wants to park their car and not drive again for their whole stay.
