Staying here was a wonderful and welcome surprise! From the moment you arrive the service was exceptional. The rooms are spacious, modern, clean and like new! The restaurant and bar is convenient with good service. The adjoining Spa is First Class. If you need a massage ask for Carolyn! You won't regret it. She is fabulous! Will never stay anywhere...

We had stayed in a few other US cities during a recent trip and generally had very good experiences at all the hotels we stayed in (some 4* and some 5*). However, The Battery Wharf Hotel was the worst hotel by far. I can see that at some time in the past this hotel may have been 5* - there... More

We checked in after arriving after a red eye and they couldn't locate our reservation. We were placed in a tiny, dark room that had numerous rug stains. When I asked for another room the front desk person seemed nonplussed and my husband selected another room later that day. We had turn down service only one out of a for... More

I have to say I'm somewhat less than enthusiastic about this place. Check in was easy but I mentioned our anniversary and my husbands birthday and didn't even get a friendly remark from the desk associate. I wasn't asking for an upgrade or anything. Just a congrats would have been nice. No help with bags but we made our way... More

Hotel is very attractive and in a great location. We had a first floor room looking out on the water. The room is very well appointed with an excellent bathroom. It is a little over priced when you factor in the $50 valet parking. What really took the edge off our enthusim was paying $10 a night for WiFi. It... More

I booked this hotel for a last minute business trip in one of the apps that gives you great pricing for last minute bookings. I was very happy to see that the hotel got such high ratings on trip advisor. Well, as per my experience this rating is over rated and if I would have paid full price I'd be... More

My husband and I spent three nights at the Battery Wharf hotel. It is a nice hotel but no more than that. We had emailed them in advance that we were celebrating an anniversary and had requested a balcony. The concierge responded that there are no balconies and the pictures on the website with balconies are residences.Not too convinced as... More

Super stay at this hotel in Boston. The website advised it was possible to arrive by water taxi from the airport and what a great way to arrive! Room was spacious and clean, and the communal areas fine. The reception staff were just short of curt to be frank, but this was made up for by the friendly valets and... More

After arriving at Logan Airport from an international flight we arrived at the hotel and no one assisted us with our baggage....that should have been an indication that we should have just continued on with the taxi. However we chose to get out of the taxi unload our bags and then stand on a ridiculously long line to check in.... More

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.
