We were visiting Boston for college tours and the location was fantastic, as everyone comments. We walked everywhere from the hotel including Quincy Market, the Freedom trail, Little Italy, and beyond. As a family of 5, it was very difficult to find a room in Boston. The Long Wharf brought in a full-sized roll away bed that fit comfortably in the room of 2 double beds and the room was a reasonable price. That said, on the spectrum of hotels, this is more of a convention style hotel. Large hotel, with OK rooms, not especially warm and enviting, but functional with a great location. In our case, the 5 person capacity and great location outweighed the need for a more refined experience.
