I wanted to go up in the Custom House Tower for years. Finally made it and the views didn't disappoint. However, I wish there had been a tour of some sort to tell us about the history of the tower. I know there´s a lot...More
This review is for the Custom House as an activity. (I have also stayed at the hotel and reviewed that separately.)
The observation deck is worth the visit here! I believe if you are not a guest at the hotel, you're restricted in the times...More
I've stayed at all the best hotels in Boston several times each over the years and can easily say you'll go a long way to beat the location of the Marriott Custom House! Just here for my birthday bash with a friend in May. The...More
I stayed here recently with my family. We have a room with 1 bedroom and a sofa bed and we had a great stay. The location is perfect, right next to the tube station and walking distance to most areas. The hotel itself is customs...More
This is a review of the building NOT the hotel. That is under "hotels". This is an awesome old building that Marriott put a ton of money into. Just going into the lobby and looking UP is worth the visit! You can also go up...More
The Custom House personnel are SO pleasant and accommodating ;26th floor observation deck is special. If not a guest, simply ask how you can get to the 26th floor to see the Falcons nesting and the outside observation walkway.
We were recommended to view the tower by a tour guide. The building is amazing and there is a $7 charge to go to the observation level. You can go at 2pm or 6pm daily. All of the money goes to the Boston’s Children Hospital....More
I went to the top one afternoon for the view. It was amazing to say the least. I did find out that you could also go to another area to see the clock in detail but I did not have a chance to go there...More
The Custom House is a really great looking building, constructed along neoclassical lines, it resembles a four faced Greek structure with a roman style dome surrounded by 36 fluted Doric granite columns. Construction started in the mid 1800 with funds provided by US President Andrew...More
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
