We stayed at the Boston Harbor Hotel during August 2020 . From the moment we checked in, the hotel did a great job of making us feel safe. Everything was very clean and social distancing and masks were enforced in common areas. We were handed a bag with masks, sanitizer and a touch less key. The TV remotes were sterilized and sealed in plastic and the housekeeping did a really nice job about cleaning the room everyday. My son even got chocolate chip cookies every day and I had a special present on my birthday , which happened to fall during our stay. The room we stayed in was a Premier Suite with great views of the Harbor. Being near North End means a great choice of eating options as well as delivery through GrubHub and DoorDash. The room has a sofa bed ( for those with kids) They do not let the delivery drivers into the hotel , which is a great safety mechanism but on the flip side, it means that you will need to meet the driver outside to pick up your order should you decide to use a food delivery service , which was honestly fine with us since we prefer to be over cautious during these times I did get a chance to use the pool and gym during my stay . These are only available by reservation and booked for 45 mins at the top of each hour . They do a really great cleaning during the 15 mins before each appointment and on most days, we, a family of 3, had the entire pool to ourselves. All in all , it was a great stay and we will be back whenever we visit the area again . My only feedback to the hotel is to make sure that staff is a little better trained to be more respectful . Most of them were absolutely delightful ( special thanks to the door men who went above and beyond and made us feel so welcome ) but on one occasion, I had a pool appointment and found housekeeping in the room . I knocked the room to ask how long it would take for them to complete and if I could grab my towel and backpack and head to the pool .. the attendant rudely said no . After requesting again , she stepped out but within a minute started banging on the room door again . On another occasion , I asked a staff if the old phone outside the elevator still worked ( a question my seven year old asked me) and the staff scornfully responded , “of course , it works” and walked away.. Again, these are small things and our overall stay was very enjoyable . For those thinking of traveling to Boston and worried about COVID, I think Boston Harbor Hotel is a great option . They take the cleanliness seriously and seem to be doing everything possible to make sure the visitors can have a luxurious stay during these difficult times.

Hotel's Favorite
Took 2 separate trips to New England as part of our Summer road trip. Spent 1 night at the BHH before heading to NH for the 4th of July weekend and was so impressed with the staff, facilities and the hotel itself, we made a point of returning later in the month and stayed for 2 more nights. Booked through my AMEX Fine Hotels and resorts and received an unexpected treat as we were upgraded to a suite overlooking the harbor and the City. There is no turn-down service due to COVID but other than that we didn't feel like there was anything missing from the service or amenities. LOVED the breakfast at Rowes Wharf Sea Grille and was happy to eat outside....even on a 90 degree day. My 11 year old loves room service...Ordered room service for lunch twice and was delicious. Walking distance to the New England Aquarium, Chinatown and great neighborhood restaurants. A 5-star hotel isn't all about how fancy the furnishings are or the chandelier in the lobby.....but how welcome the staff makes you feel and how well things are run. The BHH is definitely now one of our top 5 favorite hotels and excited to return in the Fall.

Given COVID19 its really difficult to really give a objective view of a hotel at the moment. The room was great, although the bathroom was a little small given the overall size of the suite. Staff interaction was all good. I think what was really the problem was that common areas were limited. Booking to use gym. Closed bars. This is not a slight at this hotel. We just hope any “new normal” means hotels like Boston Harbour can soon deliver the service they capable of.

A little corporate and really wish they had a nicer restaurant and bar. Otherwise great rooms, view over the harbor and wonderful spa and work out area with a pool. Staff is attentive and easy to park your car. Elevator is slow though.

We stopped here for a night to break up a long drive from Maine to New York. I was nervous about staying in a hotel during Covid but the Boston Harbor Hotel did an excellent job of making us feel comfortable. Several services are not available- valet parking, turn down service but the hotel continues to try and make your stay feel luxurious. We had a choice of using a bellhop or bringing our luggage in ourselves, iPads are in all the rooms- we ordered room service on the iPad and it was followed up with a phone call asking if we wanted plastic utensils or regular ones, plus how we wanted the room service- in “to go” bags, left outside or did we want traditional service with the waiter bringing the food into our room and setting it up. They told you over the phone that they would not enter a room unless you had a mask on. We had 2 rooms overlooking the harbor. It was beautiful and very relaxing to just sit and look at the water. Rooms are large and updated. Amenities were in sealed bags and masks and hand wipes were in the room. The hotel is in a great location for visiting all the typical Boston tourist sites- although the streets were eerily quiet. We hope to return to this hotel when things are hopefully, more “normal.”
