We arrived late in the evening Saturday night and we were able to park our car right out front while we checked in with our bags. The nice gentleman out front Jarod who we say multiple times during our stay was very friendly and efficient. After asking if we had been to Boston before and what brought us here, informing... More

We love the 2 night stay at this hotel, we have the City View room. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is very nice and clean with huge shower. We love Starbucks located inside the lobby of the hotel to get some snack and coffee for breakfast. It is walking distance to all activities and the subway stop is... More

Great location and staff. Great room. But a bar that's near deserted, an in house Starbucks breakfast only, soap is the limit of bedroom toiletries ! all give the hotel a soulless feel. High priced. Look elsewhere, compare and decide what you need

Stayed there one night in a downstairs cabin. Room was clean and comfortable. Great locatoin near Quincy Market. Parking available for a fee 2 blocks away in a garage which was not a real big hassle. Would stay again.

It's different, with brick interior in the atrium. The location is good, just blocks from The Old State House and Faneuil Hall. The room was quiet as we had a king bed room facing the atrium. There were some homeless people who always seemed to congregate within 30 yards of the hotel. One night, hotel management checked to send if... More

I will be positive first, I have been to Boston several times and I like the "Harborside Inn". BEWARE: You will not be told when you make your reservation that you will be charged a returnable 20% fee just in case, as the guy at the front desk said to me, "You break something". We were on a very budget-conscious... More

We have stayed in Boston several times over the years, but I just discovered the Harborside Inn. We got a deal through Hotels.com which was nice, but even better is the location. The Inn is between the Aquarium and Quincy Market -- about 2 blocks to each -- and even a short walk to the North End. Yes, the rooms... More

Room was great! Clean comfortable! The location was great. Staff was helpful and friendly. The only problem was street noise. People yelling from the street at 3AM, trash trucks at 6AM. Not the hotels fault but like most downtown hotels very noisy.
