I stayed here on a business trip and found it to be a comfortable stay. My co-workers and I met and did some work down stairs in the cafe area in the morning and afternoon. In the evenings, the cafe becomes a bar, and it did fill up. The cafe offered coffee (drip or espresso) as well as a few... More

This is a good quality boutique hotel with stunning short coming - no kettle in the room. When I called the desk to ask where it was, I was told a lot of people ask, but it was a management decision and there was a Starbucks in the lobby. As someone who travels a lot, and likes to have a... More

We just got back from our stay at the Harborside Inn in Boston. We were SO happy with our room and the hotel as a whole. It is a small boutique hotel on the north side of boston. The location is PERFECT. We were able to walk to Quincy Market, Harpoon Brewery and the row of Italian places. The room... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in this hotel. From the minute we checked in until check out everything we couldn't fault a thing. The reception staff are so friendly and helpful. They helped us get a hire car & printed out directions for us to get around. Room was lovely. We got clean linen & towels each day (4day... More

November 2008 Stayed here for one night w a gf. Hotel is in the perfect location. We took the train from the airport & hotel was directly across the street. Marketplace is 2 mins away. A lot of bars & restaurants within walking distance. View was nice & room was amazing!!!

My wife and I stayed there for a short three day trip to Boston in the summer. Could not have enjoyed the experience more. Friendly staff and beautifully decorated. The best part is the convenient location. We parked our car and never needed to move it. We walked the whole city and saw everything we planned on visiting. Little Italy,... More

I came across this Boston listing and thought that it showed potential. Well, I was right. I booked this hotel and had no regrets. This boutique hotel has pleasant rooms, charming desk staff, No coffee maker in room, but Starbuck's is on premises, and there is a smart, stylish, chic bar and lounge. It's located near many restaurants in easy... More

I love the city of Boston and visit frequently. I have been staying at this hotel once-twice a year since early 2012. The hotel has been updated and renovated through these past 4 years. The progress has been amazing to see and it now has a very modern and slick vibe. The hotel is steps away from Quincy Market and... More

Since the main reason for my trip was a conference I can not really comment on the location, other than it was easy to find places to eat and drink in the area. Also the Starbucks breakfast downstairs was a big plus :-) The room was clean and nice with everything you needed. Friendly staff. Also it was really easy... More

The Harborside Inn was a great choice, as we were in "tourist mode" while in Boston. We had a cabin room, and the fact that it had no windows did not bother us, as we like our room to be very dark. However, the lights do have dimmer switches for those who want some light. I believe that the flat-screen... More
