This hotel is awful! Don't go there ever!! Go away!! Don't even look here! Ok, it's not. It's honestly one of the best hotels we've been to. We had thought it was our little secret and now more folks are learning about it. If you get the right room, the views are just stunning and amazingly relaxing. We love sitting... More

First the good: The location is superb, the rooms are large, the water hot, and the bed very comfortable. Rick, who greeted me and sent me off, is very service oriented. Nice robes, too. The bad: The internet was not working. When I reported that, Rick told me that they were having issues and it would be re-set. I had... More

Dear Sistahsays We are very disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay with us. As you saw we are a small boutique hotel. Our front desk is manned from 8am - 6pm but there is always staff on the property and a telephone number in case a guest needs to get in touch with him. We are very sorry... More

We were on our way to Rome and stopping over for a few days in Boston. I booked this inn/hotel because we wanted to be on the water. Everything about the experience was outstanding from the early check-in (overnight flight, ugh) to the caring staff to the fantastic location. The rooms are spacious, no, huge!

My girlfriend and I stayed at Boston Yacht Haven for just one night, but we enjoyed it immensely! The rooms are fabulous, with an incredible view, *really* spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped. The staff was always professional and very helpful. The captain's lounge is beautiful as well, but sadly we didn't have a lot of time to hang out... More

Today is Day 2 of our 5-night stay in the Penthouse (Room 10), and I could not possibly wait until we get home to Davie, Florida to rave.

My husband and I stayed here for 8 days. The marina location is so picturesque, the beds are very comfortable, the hosts are helpful and friendly and the breakfasts are delicious (especially the warm croissants!) The lounge overlooking the harbour was a perfect spot to enjoy our Happy Hours which we supplied from a conveniently located store a block away.

Would definitely choose the 10 room Yacht Haven over typical big box hotel for location, room appointment, views, staff and service. Our next stop was a Hilton in midtown NY with 2,000 rooms and while nice, there was no comparison. Only area for improvement is wi-fi access as we could not connect any Apple products to the free wi-fi service.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
