We just returned from a weekend at the Marriott Long Wharf and we were very pleasantly surprised. The location, of course, is wonderful (adjacent to the aquarium and within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and Faneuil Hall). What we were not expecting is that the rooms would be as nice as they were. The views of the harbor are terrific, and the rooms are quite plush - wonderful beds with fluffy duvets and down pillows, nicely appointed bathrooms (a bit small) with granite countertops, and very attentive service from the staff. Any request was dealt with immediately, and the staff was very warm and friendly while still being professional. The restaurant, Oceana, was terrific - we ate in the bar area for lighter fare but their dining room is lovely with windows overlooking the harbor. Room service arrived perfectly on time, and they weren't looking for an extra tip above the service charge (many hotels leave you wondering if you've done enough). A small complaint is that because the interior of the hotel is an atrium, noise can carry and sometimes young children playing in the lobby in the morning can disturb you. If you leave the heat/ac fan on in the room that tends to muffle any noise. One more great feature of the hotel is that there is a pay-per-movie system on the television that features first run movies that are yet to be released on DVD - I've never seen that before in any hotel. We really loved the hotel - it was a wonderful, comfy and cozy way to spend a weekend in New England!
