Friday night wine tasting in the Counting Room is always a must. Great restaurants that are all in walking distance. Great day trips are... More

We had two rooms at the custom house and they both were lovely. I really wanted a harbor view but was unable to get it but Katherine check us in and gave me a room with a small view of the harbor. Bonnie the concierge was so helpful and helped us plan a beautiful day to Rockport on the train.... More

The Marriott Custom House is a hotel with large rooms right in the heart of the city. Most of the rooms come with a living room, bedroom and kitchenette. Due to the building's architecture many of the rooms are different layouts, but basically the same. I don't think I would actually buy into this property as a Vacation Club property.... More

Was VERY pleased with all aspects of the Custom House. We were in the "heart" of where we wanted to be. Had a nice view, walking distance to Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market,... More

We are Marriott Custom House timeshare owners and have stayed at several other Marriott Timeshares and this one spoils you so that you are disappointed in the others. The service here is great. The whole operation is very gracious. There are wonderful activities each day that are usually free. We especially enjoyed the one on the different teas. The scones... More

Horrible service first of all. The lady at the front desk was rude, or having a bad day. The check in took 2 hours. We got there are 2pm exhausted from our travels and were able to check in at 4pm because the "room was not ready". The official check in time is 2pm as written on Marriotts website. The... More

As MVCI owners we stay at a lot of their properties. There is nothing like the Custom House. The history behind the building and the architecture are amazing. There are so many unique rooms to stay in and ours on the 23rd floor had a gorgeous view we could not get enough of. It is a very old building so... More

This Marriott property is wonderful! Each room is actually a villa with living room, dining room, microwave, dishes, small fridge, full size coffee maker, etc. It's a Marriott vacation club location so everything is right there for your comfort.
