Friendly staff, room and bathroom ok, but could do with a bit more bench space. Room was initially dark until we figured out that all lights were on dimmers. Nice lounge bar and good cafe for an early morning quick breakfast. Had inside room on seventh floor so no exterior noise problems, but blind allowed some light into room. Close... More

For the price this place is pretty reasonable. Be advised they only offer rooms with one bed. Otherwise, the service was no-frills but I was ok with that as I get tired of tipping people for carrying bags I'm entirely capable of moving myself. The location is also completely amazing.

We stayed here twice while in town for Red Sox games. It is in a great location, you can walk to many attractions or take the T right outside the hotel to anywhere in town. Quincy market is 2 blocks away and Boston Common is about a mile. Walk to the North end on Sunday morning for fresh baked Italian... More

We have state at this hotel more than a dozen times in the past decade. Our most recent stay was this first (and last) since the renovation to a "boutique hotel" which included turning part of the lobby into why appeared to be a decent lounge... We were on the fifth floor when we were awoken by what seemed to... More

I landed about 9:30 from Canada. Kitchen is closed. No gym. Internet is glacially slow and you can't make LD calls on the room phone. chatting with the staff took 30 minutes to identify a location which could bring some food in to the room. They simply are not geared to support people who fly a lot, require some support... More

We stayed at the Harborside in for 3 nights while visiting family in Boston. We chose this hotel because it wasn't a chain hotel and it had character. In addition it is super close to many bars&restaraunts....as well as being 75-100 feet away from the T(subway). Literally, zero complaints about this hotel. We will definitely stay here again when we... More

Just wanted a night away for myself in Boston so I chose the Harborside Inn; I'm glad that I did. It is right next to Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market and the Aquarium T stop. It is also just a short walk to the TD Garden, where I was headed for the evening. The staff was friendly, the price was right (about... More

The hotel is located in the Quincy market area. Close enough to the Convention centre - and in fact if i was really interested I likely could have figured out the T line to get there. In the end, it was a 10 cab ride away. Great location as this was close to the north east restaurants . The hotel... More

Stayed just one night, but this was a great value. Chic decor, quiet as a library in my "courtyard view" room. Didn't mind not having a street-facing window. Extremely comfy bed and nice extras like a fridge and parking validation at a garage nearby. I liked the unconventional exposed brick and nicely-tiled enclosed shower. Great location for exploring Boston. Would... More

Great location nr harbour and Quincy Market. The rooms are good, reasonably spacious but some can be noisy (we stayed twice) so take time to check location or ask for a quiet room. No breakfast available but there are plenty of options nearby. There are walkup pc's in the lobby.
