I didn't stay at the hotel, so I can't measure up to all the great things being said about it. We stopped at the bar, waiting for our return trip on the ferry. Never again. I ordered a martini, big mistake! Fifteen bucks for a drink? C'mon now! Ridiculous!

Beautiful hotel, friendly helpful service, and great location. The hired staff are some of the most friendly people I've met at a hotel. This hotel definitely does a great job of hiring the best people.

Stayed for a night - wish we had stayed for our entire stay in Boston. Great location and a lovely spacious room. Easy walk to some of the major city attractions including Faneuil Hall and the Aquarium.

We've been staying at the Boston Harbor Hotel twice a year for the past five years. When we pull up to the entrance the friendly doorman welcomes us like old friends, remembering our name, where we're from and that we're visiting our daughter. The excellent service continues through check in and bellman - accommodating, professional, helpful. The rooms are beautifully... More
