THE place to stay while visiting the historic sights of Boston. Perfect location with 2 minute walk to Faneuil Hall and the Freedom Trail, and blue line subway station right outside the Custom House door. Fantastic staff. Wonderful free and low cost programs offered, such as a tour of the Custom House. Nightly entertainment. Nightly complimentary hot cider in the lobby. Beautiful rooms with fantastic views of the city. Rooms have separate one bedroom with king bed, nice big windows, mini kitchen, beautifully decorated and very clean. We have stayed here two years in a row and plan to come back.

The Marriott Vacation Club has a real jewel here. An historic building turned into a cool hotel. Its 80 plus suites make it a limited opportunity so my tip is, book months in advance. A high floor is a plus. The location is a block from the Rose Kennedy expressway (and nice park with vintage neon signs, carousel, and greenery.
Also within a five minute walk is shopping and historic buildings you’ll want to see. The historic Northside “Little Italy” is another short walk. The hotel offers a walking tour to the Northside too for a nominal fee. Fun visits to shops and restaurants with a tasting at many. Bargain fun!
The suites are roomy and well appointed. No restaurant in the building, but the counting room holds most everything you need for a continental breakfast. Food items are a nominal fee (reasonable) - just fill out a ticket for the items you take to eat. Coffee included free. Tip: each room has a microwave and fridge - and a 7-eleven is outside the front entrance. Super tip: many restaurants nearby, and we were not disappointed. The biggest surprise was the Black Rose across the street. We went there for breakfast and for lunch. Excellent food! Great lobster rolls and we even had the whole lobster special we considered a real bargain. With this great eating I considered it to be the unofficial hotel restaurant.
Finally, I got to mention the great view from our room and the observation tower. Looking out to Boston Harbor was breathtaking. Add in the fantastic, nice, helpful staff and you have a ‘must stay here’ experience!

Spent the night here over the weekend when my wife and I came in to see Hamilton. Was able to check in early which was great and allowed us to freshen up before the show. Front desk staff and valet were extremely welcoming.

Was assigned a room on the 16th floor with a north facing view. Fantastic room, exceptional view. Room had everything we needed and beds were extremely comfortable. Couch must have been a pull out as it was very stiff to sit on.

A must see is the observation deck. 360 degree view of the city was a great find. We were confused by the continental breakfast that you had to pay for. In all my travels I can’t remember being charged for a bagel, orange juice and a yogurt by the piece. Just an odd approach in my opinion.

First of all, this property is stunning from the outside and the inside. Marriott did a magnificent job of renovating this historic property when it transformed the building into a modern hotel while preserving historic touches. The staff was attentive, informative, and wonderfully friendly. Tori and Curt took us on a variety of historic tours and tastings. Eunice makes a great martini in the small but adequate hotel bar. Mathew charms from the front desk. He even synced my phone and tablet with the hotel wifi when I had connection problems. Everyone went above and beyond.

The hotel offers a variety of activities, most of them complimentary, for its guests. My husband and I particularly enjoyed the evening cocktail hour that included local entertainment on several occasions. The renowned Berklee School of Music sent the acapella choir one evening. Another night it was a Spanish guitarist. Every night it was different and enjoyable.

The hotel is only steps from the subway to/from the airport and within walking distance to a variety of restaurants and tourist attractions. Our spacious suite on the 17th floor had a glorious view of the city skyline. The night skyline was mesmerizing whether the view was from our room or the observation deck on the 26th floor . I would gladly stay at this property again.
