First of all, Marriott considers this a level 9 hotel.... Based on location okay I get it. Based on it being a luxury hotel no way. This place is situated in the heart of the wharf where the Aquarium and trolley tours and wharf side restaurants and bars. It is a good location to leave out the door and start your day of touring Boston whether by foot or trolley. It is close to Faneuil Hall and walking is easy. The hotel on check in was easy but our adjoining room was not ready. Even though we saw the people check out at 10:30, we were going into the other room , it took till 6:30 to get our adjoining room. We were at least thankful for the early check- in of one room. Next thing is on the top floor is the concierge level. It has a fabulous view of the harbor but it is very small , crowded, hot, bad food and bad and unfriendly service. Seating is tight, hard to get and it is very cramped. Go for the view when breakfast rush is over. The rooms are small and the bath is tiny. One side of the hotel ,the back side , has a pretty view. The concierge was not very helpful and really had an impatient attitude . Really seemed bored as if we were asking the same old tired questions and did he really have to deal with us . Although the doormen were on the other hand , quite helpful when we needed advice on directions, attractions and restaurants..... Someone needs a raise. We did not use the restaurant. Our room rate increased by $ 100.00 every night we were there and when we asked why because of " business " travel .. Well we were a family traveling and it galls me to pay an extra $200.00 on the 3rd night . Although, at check in I have to admit the nice girl asked if we had triple A and we do so we got a discount .. We are platinum members with over 2 million points but again Marriott raised this to a cat 9 hotel and the amount of points was ridiculous to use. I would stay here for the ease of touring Boston. It was clean, in a great location. Very crowded with tourists. We were able to rent a car right near the hotel and then carry on to the Marriott in New Hampshire , Wentworth by the Sea, to finish our New England tour. See my review of that.
