We were married at the Boston Harbor Hotel and returned here for a third time for our anniversary - they NEVER disappoint! Even though we live about 30 minutes outside the city, we feel like we are hours away. They had a special anniversary chocolate platter for us upon arrival with champagne, and made us feel like royalty. The service... More

We stayed here for the fourth time and find no reason to stay any place else.The hotel provides a van from the hotel to the area where we pick up the bus on race morning. The rooms a large and very clean. The staff is very service orientated and available.

It was a mother-daughter weekend. We felt like royalty from check-in to check-out. Exquisite surroundings, unmatched service, luxurious and comfortable accommodations. The experience of staying there counts as a vacation unto itself. If you have the means to stay here, do it! If you don't, save until you do! This was a birthday gift to me from my deceased mother.... More

I spent 2 nights at the Boston Harbor Hotel and it was wonderful. The staff was so nice and helpful. Room was really nice - big enough to spread out and do work, great bed and nicely appointed bathroom. Great view of the city. Pricey, but a great place to stay.

We booked a harbor view over New Year for two nights in this hotel. This was the end of a four-week Boston/Vermont trip for us. The harbor view was spectacular especially for New Years Eve. The bed and linens were of really nice quality. The room was large with a separate seating area and work desk. I liked that the... More

We dined in the Sea Grille both for dinner and for breakfast and the food and the service was above and beyond. The tasting menu at dinner was delicious! The only disappointment we... More

My friends and I went to the Sea Grille Restaurant to catch up over lunch, and it was one of the best dining experiences I have had in awhile. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with a smile, and warm, friendly service. I ordered the shrimp with figs wrapped in bacon and the four cheese ravioli, both of... More

we stay at the hotel once a year and always have a great room and great service. The entire hotel staff goes above and beyond. They are friendly, helpful and most importantly make you feel welcome. Brunch is delicious with nice views of the harbor.
