From the moment we pulled up to the door, we were pampered. The room was exquisite and faced the harbor, watched the sun come up ( for a minute) then the rain came, but the room was clean and tastefully decorated. Everyone treated us like we were royalty. Great location on the Harbor and walking distance to Quincy Market. If you can afford to go there, do it, if you can't , then save up for a while and then do it. Would love to go back ASAP

Room Tip: Face the Harbor...it's beautiful

We stayed for just two nights in this lovely hotel. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We arrived quite early in the morning and thought we would have to wait a few hours before having access to our room, but the staff managed to have the room ready before we finished our breakfast! the breakfasts were really good especially the 'American breakfast'. Our room was immaculately clean and we had a fantastic view of the harbour which provided a wonderful sun rise view on both mornings.

We thoroughly enjoyed the spa with the salt pool and very warm jacuzzi which helped tired feet after all the daily walking.

When we left the hotel we took the water taxi back to the airport, such a wonderful way to leave such a fantastic city.

The hotel aim to exceed their guests expectations, which they most certainly did in our case.

Room Tip: Definitely worth having a harbour view.

We are delighted that you had such a wonderful time in Boston and that your stay at the Boston Harbor Hotel at Rowes Wharf helped to add to that enjoyment. Relaxing in our 60-foot salt water lap pool is a favorite of many of our guests, as is the water taxi as a means of arriving and departing our hotel. It sounds as if you took advantage of a plethora of amenities while here and that makes us very happy. Please come and visit us again soon and we thank you for your kind review.

Recently stayed here for a wedding. The hotel is absolutely stunning with amazing city and water views, but the rooms are nothing special. Our room did not even have a couch in it, while other people in our party had couches in their rooms. So I was a little confused about that as the rooms were the same rate. The beds were quite comfortable and very soft. I do definitely think you are paying for the location (excellent) over the actual rooms.

The hotel is within walking distance to public transportation and around the city and the harbor offers spectacular views of the boats, water and more. The breakfast at the hotel is quite expensive but very good.

The hotel staff were extremely accommodating and very friendly. We were able to check in early and they kept our car at the front while we checked in and went up to our room for a little before coming back out to it.

The Boston Harbor Hotel is a great place to stay. It's located right on the Boston Harbor so the water is never far away. The staff is truly amazing. Need something, they get it. Everyone makes guests feel like family.

Room Tip: City view rooms look out over Boston's financial district and have a nice nighttime view.

This will be our Boston hotel for every visit! The ambience, the impeccable service & location were more than we could ask for. It was my husband's birthday & the hotel concierge & Meritage - the hotel restaurant could not have made the occasion any more wonderful. We even got to have fireworks on the harbor during our champagne birthday toast from another event - what a nice coincidence!!! We can't wait to visit again!!

A great 5-star hotel. Beautiful rooms and location. Restaurant (Seafood Grille) was outstanding. Great service. The beds were very soft and hurt my wife's back but many would find them very comfortable. Beautiful waterfront location.

Upon arrival we were promptly greeted by the door man (who was incredible nice) and valet and taken to our room. The rooms are very spacious, but I have seen a nicer hotel. (Think 90's burgandy/paisley bedspread). The view from our room was unbeatable though. This hotel is about the location, if you do stay here make sure to get a harbor view.
We had a note in our room saying they were re-modeling, I did not see any signs of that (not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing).
PS....If you are a morning coffee person...note there is no coffee in the room. You have to go downstairs to get a cup of coffee. I did not like that.
