Stayed one night. Asked months before for early check in. When we arrived, we were told room wasn't ready. Asked for another room. It was painful for us and the manager made us feel like she was doing us a favor. Room was fine. Faced the water and watched a homeless person sleep right out side our window. Will probably... More

Stayed at hotel for a week. Nice rooms and lovely location. Did not use much of the restaurant facilities as I was busy from early morning until late in the evening. Short walk to subway and downtown Boston area. Also close enough to other restaurants and bars.

Overall, I really liked the Battery Wharf. In terms of location, it is great for the waterfront and the Italian district around Hanover street. The main location problem is that it isn't very close to a T station. while north station isn't too far, it isn't as close as most Boston hotels to the T. The restaurant is very nice.... More

Everything about this hotel is first-class (the location, the facilities, and the staff). The views of Boston Harbor are amazing, and the location is perfect for enjoying the North End, the Waterfront, many spots on the Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market, TD Garden, and the Aquarium. From now on, this will be our family's first and only choice when visiting... More

This is a great place, definitely more to the high end! Rooms were very modern, spacious and big enough for 5-6 people. Staff was impeccable and the bar outside overlooking the harbor was wonderful. Even better was this hotel accepted a very low bid on priceline.

The bed was super comfortable, the staff helpful, and the stay enjoyable. The turn-down service with chocolate was a nice touch. I stayed here for work and really enjoyed it. I had a view of the harbor from my room, which was really nice. They had a desk and a reclining chair in the room.

We chose this hotel based on price and location. We were pleased when we got there. The location was convenient for restaurants and activities. We had a great view of the bay from our room. The hotel was more quiet than most. We did not hear any noise from the halls of other guests moving about. We never tried the... More

I stayed at the Battery Wharf Hotel on a quick trip to Boston, and found it very nice. Though not exactly central to the action in Boston (which can be both good and bad), it was not far at all from the North End and in a very nice location. Great staff, new decor. Very nice place.

While the Battery Wharf is no longer a Fairmount property you can see why it once was. Beautiful hotel easy. Room was huge. Walking distance to little Italy and 20 to 25 minutes walk to downtown. Did find the fact that wifi was not free to be a bit of a joke at the price you pay for the room.

Very friendly and helpful upon check-in. We stayed in the building adjacent to the main portion of the hotel. Nicely appointed and beautiful views. After walking into the North End for dinner, which is a short distance we noticed a number of people gathering for the views from the hotel. We also took advantage of the gym in the morning... More
