The hotels boasts to be 5* but really the level of service was far below that: 1. There was only one pair of sleepers in spite of double occupancy 2. On the first day shampoo and shower gel were not renewed so had to use the soap 3. On the second day glasses were not washed and trash 4. In... More

The hotel location is in a quieter section along the harbor, but it's very convenient to all the major attractions. The hotel staffs were so helpful and nice -- they made us feel so special. My husband forgot his sneakers and the staff got him a pair right away...

Great location for Boston travelers in town for pleasure. Walking distance to great restaurants, sightseeing, etc. Being on the wharf is the best location. The quality and upkeep of the hotel and its surroundings were top notch. The staff was attentive and professional.

I stayed at this hotel with my wife and son. The ambience was very good throughout this hotel. The restaurant had an outdoor patio with an excellent view of the waterfront. The service was excellent throughout. Overall a good experience.

Excellent choice for a stay in Boston. Very few places are pet friendly, not only is the Fairmont pet friendly it is an outstanding luxury hotel with exemplary service. Spotlessly clean and inviting. Gracious staff and very convenient to the historic North End. Wonderful water views from our well appointed room.

Excellent Hotel. Quick water taxi ride from airport. Close to all sights in North End (e.g. many on Freedom Trail). Comfortable and spacious accommodations, helpful staff, and good food at the restaurant. Good price, too. Would definitely go back again.

We stayed here in May and had a lovely time. The hotel is a little off the beaten path but not that far out of the way from the North end so if we needed a ride- we'd call an über instead of catching a cab. The hotel is really nice- right along the water. The rooms were really big... More

I booked this hotel for my cousin and family to stay one night before a very early flight. My husband and I had gone on a wine tour a few weeks ago that started at this hotel. Honestly I didn't even know where this place was, it just has never been on our radar for a city place to stay.... More

Like reviewer 'happytravels49' we were also in Boston for the Independence Day celebrations. As with the flights, all holiday-related costs were higher than usual, but we chose this hotel for its location and 5* rating. We were not disappointed..everything was spot on, from spacious modern rooms to efficient and friendly staff. We were a bit concerned about the daily charge... More

We visited Fairmont Battery Wharf for the Fourth of July weekend. Actually, the visit began before we walked into the lobby. The hotel contacted me prior to my arrival to ask for an approximate arrival time, which I supplied. The day before I arrived, I was able to pre-check in online. It was very nice to be able to communicate... More
