My husband and I recently spent a long weekend at Battery Wharf. The staff treated us royally and the hotel was a quiet oasis to relax and regroup after exploring Boston. The room was extremely comfortable (we stayed in the Executive Building) and the breakfast was more than we expected. We were delighted with the service and the experience.

I didn't stay at this hotel, but had the chance to take their lobster boat adventure and it was so much fun! We were picked up at the dock by Fred, our lobsterman guide and off we went to an area near the Boston islands. Along the way, Fred pointed out different points of interest and we learned about Boston's... More

Not my favorite, this hotel. We chose it due to its nice location in the North End and reasonable pricing. We also expected very high standards as a member of Leading Hotels of The World. But the apathetic hotel employees upon arrival and a dingy (and not so clean)room offering only a sliver of promised harbor views (if you peeked... More

Fantastic location, attentive staff, lovely surroundings and comfortable well-appointed rooms. We purchased our room through priceline.com and received a discounted rate so we felt like we got a lot of bang for our buck. The food in the hotel's restaurant is above average albeit pricey. Back to the room - it had a comfortable bed and quality linens with a... More

We stayed at the Wharf hotel to round out our week in New England. Prior to the hotel we were staying in Newport, RI and this was a great last night treat we had prepared for ourselves. The Concierge, David Archer did a great job recommending alternate bakeries should the two main ones in the North End be busy. As... More

This hotel was great when it was under the Fairmont name. The location was perfect for our family. When I made the reservation weeks ago, I was assured that all the one bedroom suites in the gold building had a pull out couch (that's what we had on our last stay a year ago) I called at 2pm to say...

I only needed to stay one night, but this hotel compares well with the best hotels in Tokyo, Paris, and Rome. Accommodations leave nothing to be desired. Service, courtesy, and friendliness are excellent. The Harbor Cruises water ferry boats will take you from Logan International Airport the the Battery Wharf and back. The entire downtown area, including the Old North... More

We enjoyed staying here back when it was a Fairmont. Currently the property appears to really need a sprucing up, particularly when you compare its rates to other solid hotels in Boston. The Fairmont Battery Wharf used to be really clean, comfortable, in a fantastic waterfront location, and its staff was the best in Boston. While the staff is still... More
