This hotel is by far one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at! They went above and beyond for us, even providing a crib, stroller, baby bath, and baby toiletries for us to use for our child for our stay. The concierge helped us with any questions we had and even printed out information for us. Our flights... More

I spent just one night at this lovely hotel in the middle of our horrid winter. It was a bright spot in an otherwise gray and dark season. My niece and I stayed the night, another niece joined us for dinner in the nearby North End. We have already decided this needs to be an annual event where all three... More

Let's preface this review with "if you need to know the price, you can't afford it"...OK Boston Harbor Hotel is expensive but on the other hand, "it don't get no better" in Boston. The rooms are perfect whether on the harbor side or the city side. The service is enthusiastic, I would say "impeccable" but then, I'd be at the... More

I was in Boston for their third blizzard and enjoyed every minute spent in the hotel. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. I enjoyed the old world charm of my room as I watched the blizzard on the harbor.

The Rowe's Wharf location is fantastic and the conference board room had terrific water views. Both the spa and the gym are undergoing renovation as are the bathrooms near the conference rooms so that was not convenient. Glad the renovation is under way. The rooms should be next. Very outdated. Old school provincial. But for visitors they might like that... More

Really porshe hotel. Extremely friendly staff. The massage at the spa was out of this world! A bit pricey, but you definitely get your money's worth. It's walking distance to many great shops and restuarants! The room overlooking the harbor is just really fabulous!

Check in and check out were as fast as possible. Rooms were ready and clean. The restaurant was very good with a good business ambiance and view to the harbor. But, above everything, Service was top-notch. Every request happily fulfilled. Even a forgotten item was sent back home with no issues and very kindly. If I were to find a... More

Receptionist ignored (5 minutes) my presence to introduce breakfast at desk entrance, being taking phone. I reported the situation to the manager on duty who made the call of attention to the lady and offered breakfast in hotel bill, which agreed at the insistence of manager.

This is the perfect hotel for a trip to Boston. Very beautiful. True colonial/Boston feel. Beautiful views from Sea Grille Restaurant and from those rooms facing the waterfront. Staff throughout the hotel were gracious and attentive. To a one they know your name and anticipate your every need. The doorman, Joseph, by far really made our trip more enjoyable. He... More
