Actually used Trip Advisor to find this little gem. This Inn's location to the waterfront and Faneuil Hall is perfect. Compared to other hotels in the area you cannot beat the price. The room we stayed in was rather large, new, and immaculate. There is no restaurant, however there is a restaurant adjacent to the Inn and many other options... More

The Harborside Inn is a great place to stay while staying in Boston. We traveled by subway from Logan Airport to the hotel. We were able to quickly check in when we arrived. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful and provided us with the name of a great pizza place for lunch. The location of... More

We were in Boston for 1 night and wanted clean, tidy hotel in good location at reasonable price; this ticked all the boxes. Location is great for main sights. Rooms were perfectly satisfactory. The lobby/entrance is small but staff very helpful and free terminal and printer.

Good value. Quality rooms. Good service. But the best aspect is location. Right at a T Station ( aquarium), right next to Fanuel Hall, rose Kennedy greenway, north End, a short walk to Boston Common, etc...where I will stay each time we visit.

We enjoyed the Harborside Inn the location is near most of Boston's downtown sights. Make's for a good place to walk from. Our room was 4th floor facing State street, nice views but a bit noisy at night would request a room next time not facing the street. The rooms are very nice check the web site for pictures. There...

This was a great place to stay...one reason was due to it's location. So close to everything. We could walk everywhere from this hotel...Freedom Trail, North End, etc. We were very pleased with the room...no problems with street noise and had a great view of the area. Desk associates were friendly and accommodating...would definitely stay here again on a return... More

Harborside Inn is a very trendy hotel and located in the financial district, which is a fun area on the weekend and near the Quincy Market. The room was a little small, well furnished and had a nice bathroom. The hotel space is interesting with many exposed brick walls. There is no work out room. The desk attendants were very... More

Overall I was very happy with this hotel. We stayed Sunday night after July 4th for one night. Could not be a better location, staff was friendly, rooms were nice, big bathrooms, etc. The only complaint that we had (and that they failed to tell us on check in), is the seemingly lazy bar downstairs turns into a raging club...

We found this gem as an online special, and are we ever glad we did. The hotel is extremely well maintained, quiet, rooms are delightful. Bar downstairs and 3 minutes from the waterfront and Quincy market. We stayed 2 nights, walked to the north end for dinner one night and walked to the Oyster house for dinner the next night... More

Perfect location. Walking distance to the Aquarium, North Station, and restaurants along the wharf area People were friendly, Front desk was very helpful. Rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. They have a bar which was very busy and fun at night. Perfect place to have coffee in the morning and people watch.
