Very nice hotel next to harbor and aquarium and below Italian North End district. Warm feeling rooms , well equipped and if you can get view on the harbor it is really nice. Bar is also a nice place to chill out. Did not try the breakfast as we went outside but it looked pretty mouth watering. Service was also...

Beautiful hotel, beautiful updated and upgraded room facing the harbor. Great location. A quick stay for us but it will definitely be our first choice when we return to Boston. We didn't have a chance to eat at the hotel but did venture out to some great restaurants very close by.

The elegant Boston Harbor Hotel is a wonderful place to stay! The decor and ambiance reminds me of regal European hotels! All the employees are lovely and so helpful. We celebrated my birthday at the exquisite four star rated Meritage restaurant. It did not disappoint!

We stayed at the Boston Harbor Hotel for 4 nights and it was absolutely incredible! The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The grounds were very clean. We ate breakfast each morning at the hotel and it was delicious. Our housekeeper was world class! She'd clean immaculately and even fold our clothes and put them away. This is the only place...

The location is a perfect combination of walkable access to fine restaurants, the Boston Opera House, WANG Theater and other venues. The views, either city side or harbor side are terrific, the rooms spacious, well cared for and quiet. The in-house restaurants serve excellent food an somewhat reasonable prices. The bar is a little noisy, but comfortable. The parking is...

The ONLY reason I gave this place a 4 star rating is because the rooms are not that quiet-we could hear our neighbors in their room, and anytime anyone walked by in the hall. We spent a quick weekend in Boston, starting at the Intercontinental Hotel next door to the Boston Harbor and paid much less-for a better experience. We...

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.
