Stayed here for two nights prior to flying to Ireland. Totally enjoyed the stay! This was our first stay in Boston, and we wanted somewhere close to the historic sites in Boston (check!), comfortable (check!), clean (check!), where the staff were friendly and efficient (check!), and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg (check!) The lobby is beautifully post-modern,... More

April 12-14th was the second time that we stayed at the Harborside Inn, with the last time four years ago. The hotel has maintained its quality over the four years and still is the perfect place to see the history of Boston. Just two blocks away is the location of the Boston massacre, and just a block in the opposite... More

This is a small boutique hotel. It is close to the aquarium and Faneuil Hall Marketplace. The staff is knowledgeable and very helpful. The rooms are a little on the small size but very adequate and clean. There was a DVD player in the room. You are within a block or two of lots of pubs and restaurants. The aquarium... More

Stayed here for 3 days, greeted by very friendly and helpful front desk personnel, found a clean and good-sized room. The location was perfect - you are in the middle of it all! I walked to the conference center (20 min walk), the Prudential building (40 min), Quincy Square (1 min), the commons park (10 min), fish/fruit-vegetable market (3 min),... More

This hotel was in the perfect location, only two bloks fom quincy market, Union oyster house, the chart house and countless other pubs and historical sites. Our room was spacious and over clean with an outside window. We noticed some rooms seem to be facing an inside courtyard They also are connected to a local parking lot so we had... More

Third time staying here. Our hq is in westborough, so always stay here for a fly in weekend before heading out to the burbs. Great little boutique hotel, love the furnishing and look of the rooms. Great value for $$$. Walking distance to many bars/pubs which is always a bonus.

The location of the hotel is excellent - walking distance to lots of sites and public transport options. The rooms were very clean and spacious and the in room wifi was fast and glitch free. The bathroom was also excellent and everything was perfectly clean and comfortable. The only thing the rooms lacked was tea/coffee making facilities. There's plenty of... More

We stayed at Harborside in March 2015 while there was plenty of snow on the ground and very cold. The location was perfect for walking to the many great places to visit and to mass transit. It was an easy walk to the dock for ferry ride, easy walk w/luggage to the subway and easy to/from airport via subway. The... More

Ideally situated across the road from the aquarium and 10min walk from the frozen ice bar. The only negative was that the room had no window looking outside as it was situated in the middle of the building. The room was perfect for our 3night stay. Only thing I would ask for would be tea and coffee making facilities to... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights whilst on business in Boston. The room itself was basic, clean and comfortable, with a modern bathroom and decent bed. However, it was very dark (no natural light) and the lack of basic amenities like bottled water and a kettle wasn't great. Still, a quick trip to 7 eleven over the road... More
