Stayed here after a Bruins game March 9. instead of driving home as we wanted to explore Boston a bit. Easy Walk to TD Garden from the hotel (about 10-15 minutes).North end is 1 block away so there are great options for dinner within walking distance. Hotel staff all friendly and great with advice as to where to go and will make reservations for you. Espresso machine in the room, which was great! View was terrific and will definetly stay here again-hopefully in the summer.

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! As the official hotel of the Boston Bruins, it is great to see fans that are taking the opportunity to stay with us, especially given our close proximity to the TD Garden.

I am glad to hear that you plan to return this summer which is a beautiful time of year here on the waterfront. If there is anything I can do to make you next stay more comfortable, please do not hesitate to contact me. We look forward to seeing you again!

Regards,
Indu Brar

We had a lovely 4-day stay here. The hotel itself is very beautiful with a blend of modern and elegant design. Easy, easy walking all around the North End and downtown Boston -- we never used the car once! The room was clean and extremely well-designed -- the "hall" closet had a back wall that opened up in the bathroom, so you could hang your clothes up and access them while getting dressed in the bathroom. Very very clever!

Room Tip: Get a room as far out on the wharf as possible -- you can see more of the water and less of the hote...

As soon as I arrived, I knew I would be in for great stay. I booked the hotel sight unseen as it was the best deal I was able to find in the city. Driving to the hotel, I was awestruck at where the hotel was located. Very central to many restaurants and attractions, along with a great view of the wharf.
I was immediately relived of my car by the valet outside the hotel, and check-in was effortless. The front desk staff was very courteous and helpful with pointing out popular places to eat. There was a slight issue with the key card machine but was taken to my room and a card was promptly made 5 minutes later. The room is breathtaking with much thought put into it. I stayed in a king bed room on the first floor. Mini bar was, and stayed, fully stocked; bathroom was huge and came with two white robes on hooks. There is a plug at the TV for an aux in cable for an MP3 player, and a speaker in the bathroom. Overall, It is a great place to hang your hat and will definitely be staying again! Only wish I was staying more than a night!

Room Tip: No issue with the front floor, a room on a higher floor might be a better view, but at a higher cost...

Thank you so much for posting your review! I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and that you had an overall great experience. I do apologize that our key machine was experiencing some trouble during your check in and I thank you for your patience! It is so nice to hear that you appreciated even the smallest of details that our hotel has to offer such as the computer/TV connection pack that comes in each room.

I hope that we will be able to welcome you again when your travels bring you back to Boston.

Stayed here for three nights in the gold building as first part of our tour, this was by far the best quality on the trip and of experience of other American hotels, the staff couldn't do enough if asked, included which is not the norm in the states was breakfast and every evening from 5 till 7 free hors d'oeuvres in the lounge then nine until ten desserts/pastries, also Complimentary Wi-Fi again unusual in our room, definitely would return

Room Tip: Go for Gold

We booked this hotel as part of a package and really we couldn't fault it in anyway. From the moment we checked in the and moved over to the gold building we were treated really well, the dedicated concierge was great and she helped us with pretty much anything we could think off, including suggestions of restaurants and where to visit etc. The rooms were perfect as well, the size of them was enough for more like 4 people with a huge king size bed which I actually had to step up on to get into! The facilities available were excellent with full use of the gold lounge and free continental breakfast, free hors d'oeuvre and a free mini desert in the evening too. All the non-alcoholic drinks were free and the alcoholic ones were very well priced. The free breakfast was excellent with good quality food provided and available right through till 10am. We also ate in the restaurant of the hotel one night which was again an excellent experience with an excellent selection on the menu. There isn't really enough that I can say to convey how good they are at this hotel particularly if you have a gold room. All I can say is if your in Boston you have to stay here and that's it full stop.

I recently treated my wife to a Valentines Day weekend escape "getaway" at The Fairmont Battery Wharf. She absolutely loved her stay with the Fairmont, as did I. The service, professionalism, and warmth of the staff was second to none. Two days before our arrival we received a phone call from the Fairmont to greet us, ask if they could help with our stay in any way, and thank us for our upcoming visit. Our arrival could not have been better prepared for by the hotel. They considered every detail for our weekend stay. Our room in the Gold building was simply wonderful. It was very spacious with a large living suite, separate master bedroom, and an elegant master bath, all of which were simply beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. We began our Saturday afternoon at Aragosta, The Fairmont's Bistro and Bar. We found ourselves quickly unwinding in this luxurious lounge before setting out to explore Boston's North End. It was such a pleasant stroll. The Fairmount is conveniently located very close to Hanover Street. We returned to Aragosta at the Fairmont around 9 PM and spent the rest of the evening enjoying Live jazz music and a fantastic Martini. When we eventually made our way back to our suite we discovered that the Fairmount elves had left us a bottle of sparkling wine, chocolate covered strawberrys, and a trail of rose petals. The end to a near perfect day. Our package also included a very fine breakfast on Sunday morning. I enjoyed the smoked salmon and cappachino. Checkout was performed electronically via smart phone and was a breeze. During our drive home my wife and I found ourselves combing through our calenders in hopes of finding our next opportunity to return together to The Fairmont. We both felt relaxed, recharged, and thouroughly pampered. Our thanks to all the Fairmont staff who made this weekend so special.

Stayed here with a friend for a weekend in a one bedroom suite. We upgraded to the Gold building and it was well worth it. Complimentary breakfast and nightly hors d'oeuvres in the very luxurious lounge. The staff could not have been more helpful...everything from taxis to dinner reservations were cheerfully handled. The restaurant on site is also very nice. Online check in prior to your arrival with a notification the room is ready is convenient and a very nice extra.
