We did not realize we were looking for a new favorite place to stay in Boston, but we found it in the Boston Harbor Hotel. Great rooms, perfect location, nice outdoor dining and exceptionally friendly staff. You cannot go wrong here and we look forward to returning soon.

This hotel is significantly nicer than the Four Seasons in Boston. The rooms are fresher, the bathrooms better, and the overall feel is less tired than the Four Seasons. The location may drive the decision to stay here vs. the 4 Seasons but all things equal I would choose Boston Harbor every time.

I stayed here for a weekend this summer and I absolutely loved this hotel. The staff are very attentive and accommodating. We had a great time visiting Boston and staying in this beautiful and historic hotel. The rooms are very clean, charming and offer a great view of the city.

Stayed with my wife to visit our son and his girlfriend . From the beginning we loved it. When the valet attendant told us there were no tips allowed on the premises I new it was different . The bar, restaurant and rooms are excellent. Location within walking distance to downtown and overlooking the waterfront is amazing.

Lovely to sit and wile away hours in front of dreamy harbor, next to Boston Harbor Hotel. There are three restaurants outside, only one takes a reservation, otherwise it's first come first serve. The food is okay, small portions, and pricey. You are paying for a view and music. But such a pleasant summer evening!

The hotel is beautiful and the service in the restaurant and bar impeccable. We had a problem with a loose door handle on the bathroom of our room. The desk sent maintenance to fix it and after that the handle fell off altogether! Fortunately it was an accessible bathroom so we could use the button to get in and out,... More

I had one nights stay in Boston for overnight business trip. The vendor I was visiting put me up at the Boston Harbor. Great Service, super location and massive room (1101). Would not hesitate to stay there again. Dinner at Meritage was very good.

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.
