Neighborhood
Downtown
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.

The Ritz Carlton is well located and immaculate. However, our experience was very disappointing. The lobby is small and cramped. The room was well sized and well appointed. However, the addition of a coffee machine in the room would have been a nice touch. The parking valet

Great hotel in a great location. Rooms are very well appointed and staff is super helpful. Cookies and warm apple cider in the lobby are delicious. Equinox in the hotel is very convenient and huge. Service is always friendly and helpful.

We stayed here one night to bring my son to Logan Airport. I just want to say we went to the concierge for late night drinks. Mike was working. He made us feel like kings and Queens. Every need was taken care of and he was fantastic. He should be running the hotel.

This reviewer apparently screwed-up and gave the Hotel a one-star review when they meant to give a five-star review, lowering the Hotel’s rating on TripAdvisor.

Boston Harbor is historical and closer to the Quincy Market - Water Front and personally more my style. The Ritz is close to the commons and is more modern with no real history- It is not far to the Quincy Market. I personally would do the Boston Harbor - I have stayed at both.
