Really nice, comfortable hotel in good locality. Good size room and very clean. Comfortable bed. Close to attractions, harbour ferries etc. However we did have an issue with the toilet in our room which was reported. A staff member from the front desk arrived about half hour later to hand me a plunger to resolve the issue and informed me... More

The location of this hotel is superb, and even though rooms aren't cheap I suspect it is one of the cheaper hotels in this area of the city. The rooms are small and mostly don't have an outside view. However, if you don't spend your days sitting in your hotelroom looking out the window you probably don't care, just like... More

Really nice hotel, the location is perfect, close to everything ! The room was spacious, the bar was superbe wih a nice spot on the sidewalk to sit and enjoy the weather. The staff helped us on restaurant suggestions and always answered us with a smile. I would stay there again anytime.

Not only is the Harborside Inn in a great location right next to Faneuil Hall, but the staff could not have been better. They were very friendly and helpful in telling us how to get around the city, and filling us in on things such as breakfast and the wifi password without even needing to be asked. The room that...

This boutique hotel is in a great location, close to the Aquarium, the T stop, and so much more. It was a clean hotel, a plus and the staff was helpful and friendly. I rate it average as the bed was very uncomfortable and the decor was a bit dingy/dated. I paid extra for a "city view" room with barely... More

If you want great location to stay, this is the place, Long Wharf, Harbor, aquarium are a block away, as well as the metro station and Quincy Market two blocks to the left. The hotel itself is clean, but they have a really tight lobby, on the upside they have a spacious bar across the hall. The room was really... More

We booked this hotel on expedia based in the price and location. $230.00/night in the heart of the financial district and a block away from the Quincey Market and the Freedom Trail. The Hotel and room were exceptional clean. The king atrium room was well appointed. It even had a full sound system for those that remember what that is...... More

Once again TA reviews helped us choose a hotel. This worked out so well - we wanted easy waking for the north end and waterfront and this provided it. The parking nearby was also convenient. Regarding windows and room locations : the king atrium rooms are very spacious and quiet.

I really liked this hotel! The rooms were very well furnished, with large bathroom and a lot of space in the room as well. Even if we could not open the window, as it was facing the interior part of the building, we really enjoyed the place. Staff is very helpful and it is located only 3 or 4 metro... More

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times in the past 4 years. I love this hotel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The atrium- side rooms are very quiet. The rooms are clean and decorated with upscale design. The hotel staff is very accommodating. This hotel is within walking distance to many historic places in Boston, and right on... More
