Had a lovely experience here. The rooms were in excellent shape & comfortably appointed. Killer views. The staff was fantastic. Very helpful & on point. The perfect location for walking to sites, grabbing dinners in the North End and lobster roll at James Hook just down the street out of this world. Hope to go back soon!

We have been coming to the Boston Harbor Hotel for at least a decade and a half. There are many lovely hotels in Boston, but this one remains my favorite for many reasons (water views, beautiful traditional furnishings, great staff, good food, etc.). On our last trip to Boston, we came with guests, one of whom was new to the... More

Just a water taxi ride across the bay from the airport. A beautiful stroll along the harbor with shops and restaurants close by. A short stroll to The shops at Faneuil Hall and the many restaurants there.

I have stayed in many hotels in Boston and this is one at the top of my list. The beds are really comfortable. The rooms are big and have bath and shower. The restaurant and bar aren't worth visiting but being in Boston, there are loads of great options so get out of the hotel for food and drink. One... More

Our son's wedding was held here in the Wharf room and the Rotunda. Just perfect! Such attention to detail. Such great food! And the beautiful setting! The rooms were well appointed and beautifully decorated. Quiet, elegant, and lovely. And, you need to check out the maps of New England from the 1600's on - a real treat and so unexpected.

The Boston Harbor Hotel brought countless smiles to my face. My Dearest’s and my room was delightful with lovely views, comfortable furnishings, and beautiful décor. The bed and chairs were covered in rich fabrics with a cheerful and imaginative mix of colors and patterns. The furniture was solidly constructed from dark woods with some tasteful light wood inlays. A nice... More

I love everything about this Hotel. It's clean, classic and has a very professional staff. Located within walking distance to Faneuil Hall and Boston's Italian North End. Right on Rowes Wharf with great views of the Harbor.

Everything about our stay was outstanding. Impeccable service without being stuffy or overbearing. Fantastic location right on the Harbor, and walking distance to Financial District, downtown, waterfront, North End, etc. Excellent amenities as well.

We stayed for four nights. We were pleased by the water taxi transportation directly to Rowes Wharf from Logan Airport! BHH is assuredly a five-star luxury hotel gracefully set in a central location on Boston's picturesque harbor. The tall ship Hermione (http://hermione2015.com/voyage2015/) made port at Rowes Wharf during our stay!! On another evening we were treated to fireworks over the... More
