This hotel is in a GREAT location, just plan to pay $$$ if you bring a car. The parking garage is across the street and has (typically high) city rates. But the subway stop is literally 25 ' from the front door. The hotel is nice and there's an original brick wall in the room - our room was almost... More

Very impressed with the Harborside. We paid around $150 for the Saturday night before Christmas! It was truly a steal for so many reasons. First, location. It is located steps from many great bars and Faneuil Hall and the waterfront. There is also a T stop located right on the sidewalk out front. Staff was friendly. Very quiet. Only some... More

Went to Boston to celebrate a dear friend's birthday. The Harborside Inn was recommended because it was located close to the restaurant, on the North End. Well, it was walking distance to the North End, Quincy Market, the Aquarium & many lovely restaurants & pubs. The cost was so reasonable & the accommodations were lovely. The rooms have been renovated... More

This hotel is in a great location near bars, restaurants and public transportation. The hotel rooms are nice but not large. Don't expect perfection my shower head was cheap plastic, the grout wasn't perfectly clean, I had no view, and the shower control was loose and wouldn't stay put. All that said I would stay there again and I would... More

The location of this hotel is perfect - 1 block away from Fanneuil Hall, with a metro stop right outside the front door. Furniture in the room is nice. Bathroom had high-end fixtures. The room had a full-size stereo, which I have never seen before. I didn't use it, but it could be useful for jamming out should you be... More

We totally enjoyed our comfortable room that looked out in out into the raw brick walled atrium. Our room was comfy, spacious, cool nautical decor for the $120 price range. The location is perfect for walking to Boston's historical spots and many cool places like the Irish Pub with great musicians, The Black Rose and the harbor. The front desk... More

We go to Boston 3 or 4 times a year and have stayed in eight different areas of the city. This was the first time we were able to put the car away and really relax. The room was a little small, but modern and very well laid out. My only complaints would be the bed was too small and... More

I spent a long weekend at Harborside Inn and I could not have been more impressed. I arrived six hours prior to check-in and they happily gave me an available room. The location is perfection. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff was consistently helpful and friendly. It was a lovely experience in every regard.
