“Most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in!”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Never stayed in a finer hotel (does not include resorts). Awesome view of Boston Harbor from the room, huge room, free wifi, a rare find in Boston. The other person in my party forgot their toothbrush, when I called down for one a little gift bag, tissue paper included came up with brush, paste, mouthwash and floss. Robes and slippers are provided for your use, and the bathroom was stocked with several additional goodies to soap and shampoo. The front desk and concierge staff were pleasant and helpful. Ah the Saturday morning buffet. While it was very expensive, there was unlimited fresh squeezed OJ, real maple syrup, honey, when ordering tea you get a whole pot, lovely fresh fruit and pastries, eggs bacon, sausage, potatoes, hot and cold cereal. You may also order from the menu which we should have done to perhaps feel better about the cost.

I really love the location of this hotel. I wish I could have stayed more than the one night to really enjoy what this hotel has to offer. The bed was comfortable and the room was spotless. The only thing they could upgrade would be the bathrooms they are a little outdated.

What lovely, huge rooms. This hotel would be an amazing place to celebrate an anniversary, Valentine's Day, etc. ----- very romantic. Sad, we were notified of a death in our family (a shock).
We deeply appreciate the front desk's kindness to extend our check-out time since we no longer felt like touring the city. We will return. Know that this property is beautifully decorated (and kept) with a superb location on the harbor. Wait staff were extremely friendly --- not at all stuffy for such a fancy hotel. Very impressive.

My husband and i went to the opening night of the Boston Harbor Hotel Wine Fesival and stayed overnight.We had a lovely room on the 10th floor overlooking the harbor.This is the level that goes around the rotunda opening so its fun to look down to the walkway below.The room was decorated in navy blue brocade and had a Chinese comforter with Chinese prints on the wall.It is very elegant and very quiet.The wine festival was crowded and it was a bit of a wait to get thru the buffet line which had mostly cold food,but there was a carving station at the end.The food was very tasty.We used to go to this festival and had not been in a few years. They are giving much smaller tastes of wine and it is hard to even tell if you like a wine from the size of the sip of wine.It is a stand up only event with some high top tables to stand at.The Wharf Room has been redecorated and it is beautiful and elegant now.Lovely place to stay in the city with a water view!

Room Tip: Ask for the 10th floor to be on the rotunda level.

Everything about this place is wonderful.
It is clean & bright, the location works out great & the staff is so helpful and friendly. We stayed for just one night, but next time will stay longer. It was the perfect location to walk pretty much everywhere. We went to the theater district, the north end & Fanniel Hall.
The rooms are spacious and have a view of either the city or the water- both are lovely. We were with our small children and with the expanded room size, pull out sofa bed, the four of us fit just right-
Don't hesitate! Book this place.

They made reservations for us for dinner and just had every answer to all of our questions , they couldn't be nicer at the boston harbor hotel. There rooms where amazing and the breakfast was so good.
