“Lovely Hotel, great location, wonderful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

I have been able to stay at this Fairmont a number of times on business. The friendly staff has always welcomed me and offered me all the assistance a guest could want / need.

The rooms are spacious, the bedding new/clean, the amenities - coffee maker, spa shampoo/conditioner, etc - were all excellent.

Have only eaten breakfast at the restaurant but was pleased with the choices and the service was perfect.

The valet took wonderful car of my car and on my last stay, my elderly mother was with me and the car & driver the hotel retains took wonderful care of her when she needed to go out to an appointment.

This is a first class operation. I would stay at this hotel again and again.

Just in for one night on a driving trip to Florida. We always wanted to see this property since friends raved about it. They were right- our room was spacious and very comfortable with first class amenities. Being right on Boston harbour was a plus as well as having an amazing restaurant onsite. We sat at the tasting section at the bar and Chef Ralph was very helpful in explaining the various dishes he was preparing. The food was amazing- some of the very best that we have had in a long time. Our trip home in April will definitely include a retun visit to this beautiful hotel and excellent restaurant!

Thank you so much for your review! I am glad to hear that we came so highly recommended by your friends and that you were equally as impressed with your stay. It is great that you had the opportunity to dine at our Chef's Counter in Aragosta and interact with Chef Ralph as he prepared your meal.

Enjoy your trip to Florida and we look forward to welcoming your back in April. If there is anything I can do to make your next stay more enjoyable, please let me know.

I really wanted to book a hotel by the waterfront with a view and great food. This was a great choice and a real boutique style that fitted our tastes to a tee!! The snow came down and made the trip and the bar and restaurant was really lovely with some nice entertainment at night!! Tres chic!!! Great concierge service with wonderful recommendations!! Try Le Mare, not too far and simply fabulous also!!

Room Tip: A Boston harbor view really made the evening!!

The Fairmont is tucked away on an old wharf with busy waterfront views across the Boston harbor. It's minutes away from the North End restaurants and the historical sights. Great service, great facilities.

Fairmont Battery, Boston
We have stayed at Fairmont hotels before and found them to have excellent facilities especially if the Gold service is requested.
Whilst we did not stay at this modern hotel we will on any future visit because of its location within walking distance of major Boston sites. The hotel sits on the harbour front at the side of the Coast Guard Station and a harbour front walk can be taken from outside the main door. We had a very good evening meal and snacks at lunch time with excellent service provided if a little pricey.

One of the best Fairmonts i've ever stayed in. Outstanding service, and what an amazing location on the water. Great bar and services in the room! The only bad part was the amount of time it took to get hot water running for the shower. But well worth the wait because the shower is amazing. The restaraunts around the hotel are also fantastic!

Room Tip: Get a room with a water view!

Thank you for staying at Fairmont Battery Wharf. I am happy to hear that we rank so highly among your Fairmont experiences. That is such a nice compliment for us to hear given that we are such a young property. I apologize for the amount of time it took for your shower to warm up, but I am glad that you enjoyed our rainforest shower head. I hope that you will choose us again on your next trip to Boston!
