We visited Boston on a 4 night break and a friend had recommended this hotel. We had a harbour view room which was lovely, the staff were very friendly and breakfast at the sea grille was really good especially the Sunday buffet! Would definitely return to this hotel.

The room had exceptional views of the harbour and was 1st class. Hotel food great and staff very helpful and friendly. In particular the Sunday buffet breakfast in the sea grille restaurant was fantastic. Would always go back and can't wait for the next time.

My husband and I visited 9/11/14 for a long weekend. The hotel was fabulous. Reminds me of hotels in Europe. Full of old world charm. Service is excellent. Staff was very accommodating. Our waitress, Susan, in the Wharf bar patio was exceptional.

My husband and I spent a weekend night in Boston recently. We decided to stay at the Boston Harbor Hotel because my sister planned on staying there that same weekend. I lived in Boston for many years and was quite familiar with BHH's reputation of excellence. The service truly is impeccable! I really don't think there is another hotel in... More

ID#: 227789589 We attended a wedding held at the New England Aquarium on the 2nd weekend in August. Among the hotels recommended were the Marriott at Long Wharf, Hilton Boston Downtown, and the Boston Harbor Hotel. Both reception and dinner were held at the Aquarium among sea lions and penguins -- a unique experience albeit we had attended countless weddings... More

This hotel has an elegant, quiet lobby and impeccably appointed rooms. Clean, well decorated, comfortable bed, nice soaps (not a brand I recognized). Great location on the harbor if you will be in the financial district / North End / Fanueil Hall area. Lack of a coffee maker was disappointing, but there was coffee in the lobby. The gym was...

I stayed here for work ahead of a conference that was being hosted at the hotel. The staff were all courteous and helpful. The hotel itself is "old New England" in many ways, small touches and the smell in the elevator and room reminded me of various other places in Mass/VT/ME. The room was good sized, two queen beds and... More

Would recommend this hotel - service quality and staff were excellent. We would recommend staying here and would stay here again if in Boston. Could have do with more / more accessible electrical sockets in bedroom because of all the technology gadgets we have nowadays but this is the only minor negative of the whole experience. The location is excellent,... More

Decided to splurge and stay at this hotel for a family vacation mid-August. You can't beat the location for downtown Boston. Close to attractions and the subway. My concerns were this would be a "snotty" hotel. I've experienced that more times than I care to remember in New York, and this was certainly not the case in Boston. All the... More
