My family of 5, which included 3 kids, were spoiled here! It was honestly one of our best stays in Boston because of the treatment we received at the BHH. Kids were given robes in their sizes and were welcomed here. We used the pool during the specific hours and they were the only ones in the pool so they... More

So fun to catch a water taxi at the airport and get a trip across the harbor, to arrive at the Boston Harbor Hotel. We arrived a night they had live music at the bar on the back of the hotel, so very festive. Staff at check-in were very professional. Liked our room a lot, with a view to the... More

We booked a harbour room and it was superb. We were given one on the eighth floor with huge picture window overlooking the harbour out towards the airport. The room was absolute luxury, excellent facilities. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had dinner outside on the harbour front and it was fabulous. Service and food were first class in...

We had a Jr. Suite overlooking the harbor. Room was lovely, view was beautiful. Hotel service pleasant and top notch. Great location - walking distance to the North End, felt safe walking around at night. For a fun diversion, take the water taxi to the airport.

This hotel ticked all our boxes and some. Staff were so friendly and helpful and the location, whilst a little out of town, was still good. The room was large, clean, spacious and the views of the harbour were stunning. It would have been nice to have had a tea/coffee tray in the room. Other than that, we couldn't fault... More

We have stayed here before and it was like visiting an old friend. Not anymore! The bedrooms have been totally redone. The rooms are now very modern yet still retaining traditional elements. There were two 65" tv screens, massive sofa and bed. Bathroom had more marble than Italy. Exceptionally quiet. Check out pictures.

Boston Harbor Hotel provides first rate accomodation for staying downtown or for meetings. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful; the restaurants are top notch and the location couldn't be more convenient to the harbor area.

Well let me tell you, it was the most wonderful place to stay. I thought it would turn out bad at first because I had my confirmation number, but could not find it when we checked in. I had booked a waterfront room, but the desk said no you have a city view. I sort of got a little perturbed... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel and cannot praise it highly enough. As others have said, the facilities are outstanding and location ideal for this cultural part of Boston.

I think Boston hotels are generally expensive and this hotel was no exception. Wa have stayed here for 3 nights and it was merely because of its good rating. We were very disappointed. The rooms were dated, not very clean, and not to a 5 star level. Bathroom looked very tired and dark. The view was great but the lack... More

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.
