I booked this hotel for my mother, who is in town for my doctoral commencement. I couldn't be in Boston for her first night here, and I researched the hotels and paid more than 410 a night so that she can be greeted in America by a beautiful view of the Boston harbor (other than that, the hotel is out...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Battery Wharf Hotel. When we arrived, I was very impressed with the location in the North End, close to the Old North Church and the New England Aquarium. We were warmly greeted by the staff and led to our room. What a disappointment! The decor was dated and the furniture a bit... More

I had a great experience while staying here for a conference. The room was beautiful with plenty of space, especially in the bathroom. There was plenty of counter space for all the toiletries a woman may have. I'm always leery of the hairdryers a hotel may provide but the hairdryer was great so no need to bring your own. An...

We've had a great experience here at the Battery Wharf. The king room we have is spacious, clean, and offers a view of the harbor. The staff has been friendly and accommodating, and they've gone out of their way to help us with whatever we've needed. Location is decent, but, for this particular trip, is a little inconvenient to the... More

Having previously stayed at hotels nearer Boston Common, this was a welcome change in that the hotel and surrounding area felt more peaceful, was quieter, and being located right on the harbor, offered excellent views of the waterfront. The location is still central enough to walk to just about any of the common attractions, and as an added (and unexpected)... More

We stayed for just one night. The staff was very helpful and kind especially Ricky who checked us in and out. The location is perfect near the North End and an easy walk to Fanuiel Hall. Room was comfortable with a great view of the harbor. We enjoyed sitting outside taking in the views of all the sail boats.

After a less than sterling hotel in Palm Beach (Brazilian Court) what a joy to come here. Great service, wonderful room with more space than we needed, great location. It will be our go to hotel in Boston from now on. We don't want to move out we've had so much fun.

Almost everything was sold out the night I arrived in Boston because of grad season. All of the hotels were over-priced and I was feeling leery about where to stay. Fortunately, the Battery Wharf was well priced and perfectly situated on the water. The hotel was very easy to get to and the rooms are lovely. The moment I arrived... More

Easy place to find, right off the highway. Valet parking was quick and easy. Beautiful hotel on the harbor. Rooms are AWESOME. Had a coffee maker, stocked fridge, 2 robes, comfy bed/pillows, nice view of the harbor. Spacious bathroom. Easy to get a cab and SO close to the restaurants in the North End (which are all AMAZING btw). The... More

After researching Boston hotels, my friend and I picked the Battery Wharf for our 6 night stay. It was a first time for both of us visiting the city and this hotel did not let us down. Great location in the North End, within walking distance to many restaurants and tourist areas. Our room was bright and clean, on the... More
