We read most of the reviews, good and bad, for the Boston Harbor Hotel and decided to stay there to see if it was worth the top ratings. Bottom line up front - the view, staff, and decor are worthy of all the hype. This is obviously a well managed hotel. We drove and arrived at 5:30pm, during rush hour.... More

A truly fine hotel in an outstanding location on the water in Boston. The arrival process is quick and efficient. The restaurants and bar are very well run with excellent service. Pay the premium for the harbor view. In the summer, the sailboats, water taxis, airport and commercial traffic are great to watch from your room. A short walk to... More

We recently took a family trip to Boston and chose to stay at the BHH. Service began at the curb, with valet parking and help with luggage. After a long drive and fighting through afternoon downtown traffic, this was a pleasant reception. Check in was pleasant and smooth. The room had a nice city view (our young daughter liked seeing...

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.
