Recent guest reviews

I enjoy Boston. People were friendly. I will see y’all next year for the Marathon

Wonderful staff. Just excellent people who seem actually happy to be there.

Beautiful hotel! Our room had a perfect view of the harbor. Bed super comfy. We'll be back!

We found the hotel staff extremely helpful and courteous.The rooms were extremely comfortable. Room service prompt and delicious. Definitely, deserves a return visit for a longer stay.

Staff was great! Started with the doormen! The whole experience started with them and couldn't ask for better people. Great attitude and very helpful

Only complaint is related to the parking. I paid for parking, but they didn't stamp it. Went back, they stamped it, but in the wrong place. Major hassle getting out of the parking garage.

We had a top flight room with a view. Beautiful. However it took half-hour to get ice from Room Service. There were only two bath towels for two guests. There should have been at least four. The complimentary coffee service was lacking--one coffee urn--several guests were lined up.

Loved the hotel from the moment we checked in. Everything was ready and waiting for me to quickly sign in. I was given a corner room on the top floor with a balcony which was a great surprise. When i asked for extra soap, it was brought to me right away in a gift bag...classy. When i asked if it was possible for me to have a late checkout, i was asked what time would be best for me. I loved it !! Thank you, Boson Hotel.

Everything was awesome, I over touristed( bought too much touristy junk) and could fit all my stuff in my bag so they even sent it home for me... great work from a great group, will be back!

First time staying here (3 nights) and I will never go anywhere else now when in Boston. Staff is wonderful and complimentary turn down service most nights (free fresh fruit, water, wine glasses, plates) set out every night. Buffet on weekends is awesome - almost everything on the menu is INCLUDED in the buffet, can't beat that.

One of the finest independent hotels in America. Great location with harbor views. Recently renovated, spacious, high-end rooms with quality amenities. Friendly and professional staff. Excellent breakfast buffet.

From the moment we arrived the service was great, helpful and professional. The view from the room was superb. The bar is intimate and a gain great. It's worth evert effort to stay here.

One of the best stays and experiences I have had since retirement and am able to travel more. I have recommended this hotel to everyone because of location, hotel room, restaurants, bars within the hotel and finally the staff was great. Always helpful and attentive. Plan on returning to Boston for a longer stay and plan on returning to this great hotel.

Loved this hotel! Everything was 5 star! Great view of the harbor from a very spacious room. Walking distance to shopping, brewery and nice restaurants.

great staff, incredible view and location, very tastefully appointed. Very quiet. Really comfortable bed! Recommend for anyone!

What a fantastic hotel! Pampered the moment we pulled the car up to the hotel entrance.

Everything was fantastic at the Boston Harbor Hotel, except the fact that there was no coffee pot in the room! We would stay there again.

Your breakfast buffet was absolutely amazing - the freshness of your fruits, breads ... I very much enjoyed my breakfast. The hotel is beautiful

This is an absolutely beautiful hotel with all of the amenities. The view of the water and harbor is breathtaking. It is located within walking distance of many great attractions. The room is well appointed. You are served an attractive fresh fruit plate every afternoon and all of the restaurants are truly gourmet.(particularly their main dinner restaurant). I got a great deal on this hotel.

My son and I came to experience the amazing place that is Boston. We wanted to walk the Freedom Trail and enjoy the busy harbor that is like no other. We also wanted to enjoy the fresh seafood and that marvelous Yankee cooking. We couldn't have picked a better place! The hotel is RIGHT on the harbor, within walking distance of SO many sites, and is easily accessible to a T station and water taxi services. Any culinary treat your heart desires is about five minutes away in Quincy Market. The hotel is gorgeous, classy, clean, comfortable, and attention is paid to the details of a guest's experience. Definitely deserving of a 5-star rating!
