“Best hotel I've stayed in ”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I came here for part of our honeymoon, and we're so happy we stayed at the Fairmont Gold Building. The rooms are lovely, big and clean and the bed is so comfy! The staff were beyond helpful and so friendly. The breakfast and the honor bar was great with a really nice relaxing lounge area. We cannot fault our stay in any way - it was just perfect and given the chance, we would certainly return.

Stayed July 2014

We came here for a night although we live locally because we had friends getting married at the Boston Harbor Hotel up the street. The place was immaculate as expected, every employee we encountered was beyond helpful and friendly. We stayed in a suite right on the water and it was such a treat.

We got a drink and an appetizer at the bar and they were fabulous. The drinks especially were handcrafted and delicious! It was a great little escape!

Great location to get to the North End, Faneuil Hall, the Aquarium and Bunker Hill. Also only like 10 minutes from the Lego Discovery Center in Somerville. We had a room with two double beds and we were able to also get an air mattress in there for my 3 year old. They have firepits outside for marshmallow roasting which looked fun. Also a nice area by the water where the kids could run around.

My only complaint was that the valet is $$ (but there is no other parking there) and it takes FOREVER to get your car. Like 40 minutes. We ended up getting refunded the valet fee for our whole stay because it took so long.

Fabulous Hotel in excellent location. Excellent Restaurants, tourist points of interest are within walking distance. Friendly staff. Rooms were quiet and well appointed. Great meeting facilities for corporate functions and really nice place for personal time.

Abundant respect and kindness. Nice waterfront location, next to North end and 100's of restaurants. Doormen, concierge, bellman, front desk, and maid service all top notch. Wonderful for families or business.

Spent 10 days in Boston, divided my time between two downtown 4-star hotels. Fairmont Battery Wharf was by far the better guest experience. SO MANY added extras were provided--special touches like a really good box of chocolates. They were exemplary. I felt fortunate to have stayed there as part of my Boston experience.

I stayed in a corner suite for a weekend getaway in Boston and this hotel did not disappoint.

The concierge was very friendly and quick to check us in and very helpful with any questions we asked. I was given a suite overlooking the harbour and I must say it was very spacious with all the amenities required to feel relaxed. Now I'm a big mini bar guy and a stocked fridge keeps me very happy which was the case this time.. Excellent start to the weekend! I was impressed with the bathroom which had a 'wet room', basically a shower and bath next to each other in a separate glassed off area of the bathroom. The bed was comfortable and we had plenty of cable channels to choose and a desk to work from.

The location of the hotel is in the Nth End of Boston which is around the corner from all the popular Italian restaurants and a short stroll from the TD Garden if your a Celtics fan. The deal clincher for me was the training clothes I was provided complimentary - shoes, tank top and running shoes to use the well equipped gym.

Pros:

- Excellent WiFi coverage
- Nice Gym
- Great Location
- Comfortable and spacious rooms

Cons:

- Nothing.. it was a great hotel experience

Room Tip: Choose a harbour view room
