We were in Boston for two nights and had a great stay at the Battery Wharf Hotel. I was really interested to see that there were some recent, negative reviews here on Tripadvisor! To the contrary, our stay was wonderful! Right from the moment we arrived, to the time we left, the staff was engaged, and very helpful. A tip-o-the-hat... More

We brought my mum here for her 70th birthday to fulfil a lifetime dream which was to visit Boston and I had personally emailed the hotel staff a few times to make them aware of my mum's special occasion, hoping that there might have been some small gesture or acknowledgement of her special birthday and it was totally IGNORED!!!

The hotel is located in an excellent location walking distance to the North End, the Aquarium and Faneuiel Hall. The hotel itself is nice. The room was clean and modern.

Don't leave your car with the valet. The hotel charged $50 per night for parking which is fine. However, God knows where in the North End my car ended up and what driver training these the valets have. . It took a 1/2 hour to get my car back at check out. (They evidently could not find another guest's car).... More

I like staying in nice hotels and don't mind paying top dollar for the luxury. I booked a "Premier" one bedroom suite as it had a fold out couch so my friend and i could have separate beds and spaces. Also the website advertises free use of BMW bikes for guests of these so-called premium suites (with no water view).... More

We visited Boston for 4 days in November. We choose this hotel mainly for its location. So what's so good about it: The location is excellent - 10 min drive via tunnel to the airport.

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
