We booked this for a weekend since we were near Boston visiting our daughter. We did NOT use our miles but from the way we were treated, it was as if it was a BAD thing to be Platinum for Marriott Miles. Wow. That was a first. When we arrived on Friday night (after 1.5 hours of downtown Boston traffic... More

My family, 3 teens, and my husband stayed here for one night. Overall we enjoyed the location of this hotel, and had a great time walking to the Quincy Market and the North End restaurants. The desk staff was courteous and friendly, although I had to switch rooms because the "water" view" was actually a view of the sidewalk on... More

Dear Pellhobs – Thank you for taking a moment to review us on Trip Advisor. Please accept my apologies for being disturbed in the middle of the night and having to change rooms for a better view. Noise is a comment we hear from a small amount of our guests who are lighter sleepers because of our atrium construction. Please... More

My husband and I stayed for a weekend and enjoyed the hotel very much. They have renovated it since my last visit and they did a fantastic job. Room was very comfortable and bed was very cozy. We ate breakfast there and the buffet was full of great choices. Drinks were expensive, but that's par for the course in a... More

Dear SKilroy – Thank you for your excellent 5 star review on Trip Advisor. I am very happy that you were able to enjoy Waterline our restaurant for a few meals. It really is a great outlet, which finished in the top 25% of all Marriott’s according to guest survey rankings in 2014. Please join us in baseball season for... More

True, the location can't be beat - on the long wharf, 2 blocks from Faneuil Hall. And the rooms aren't dirty and have nice city views. But that's where the good ends. Because the windows face the shore and not the water, the 'water view' premium is completely wasted as you can see little water. The rooms are very small... More

A perfect location right on the harbour and only 5 mins walk from Quincy market. Rooms very comfortable and clean, perhaps on the small side. Wifi in the room was a bit problematic. Would definitely stay there again. Easy metro ride from Logan airport. Easy walk, 15 mins, to North Town for really good Italian food.

Stay there for two days from 1/5 until 1/7, great service, excellent location. Room was very large and confortable, they gave me a unit corner looking at the harbor/aquarium. A very convenient Starbucks on premises.

Full Disclosure; I am a Marriott Platinum member so I have a loyalty to the brand. Great check-in experience with friendly "John", lobby is enormous, elevators are efficient, room on the 5th floor with door that opened to an "open" hallway. I did not notice increased noise levels other reviewers have wondered about. Room was standard size, nicely decorated, upgraded... More

I requested a quiet room with a view and got one: a 6th floor room overlooking the aquarium and harbor. Very impressive. I highly suggest you do the same because many rooms on the lower floors seem to have open hallways that directly overlook the lobby and bar/restaurant; I cannot imagine how noisy and not-private that would have been. Anyway,... More

If you are in the Boston area, I highly recommend the Boston Marriott Long Wharf. We have stayed at this property several times and always enjoy excellent service, good food and very comfortable accommodations. The hotel is beautifully decorated year round, but we were there in December 2014 and the holiday decorations were excellent. The staff is very friendly and... More

Located a stone's throw from Fanueil Hall and Quincy Market, the New England Aquarium, and the Freedom Trail, the Boston Marriott Long Wharf could not have been a better choice! The Museum of Science is about a mile walk and the downtown shopping district is an easy stroll. Our immaculate, 6th floor guestroom had fine amenities and a nice view... More

Dear traveler06032 – Thank you for an exception review. We aim for three things at long Wharf – to provide a clean comfortable room, to offer the perfect location and have the friendliest staff in the city. I am glad we were able to meet those goals on this occasion. Thank you for choosing us. More
