“Perfect!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

I came here with my husband to celebrate my 40th birthday dec 2013, our room was upgraded to kingsize deluxe harbour view suite and was simply wonderful. I have never encountered such attention to details/comfort/service. My husband developed dental pain and the help we received ensured he was dealt with very quickly.
The views, the food, facilities (amazing jacuzzi pool) are nothing without the awesome staff the BHH is fortunate to employ.

I will be returning and recommending this Hotel to everyone, it simply made my Birthday so wonderful. Thank you X

Room Tip: Call ahead if it's a special occasion

The concierge was wonderful, making dinner reservations, getting us train schedules, and giving us all sorts of tips to see what we wanted with our limited time. The room was beautiful and appointed with lovely furnishings.

Room Tip: We had a corner room on the top floor - a city view that was beautiful. It was quiet and serene.

There is something quintessentially Bostonian about this place. I has a view over Boston Harbour and enjoyed the infrequent, regular sounds of the tugs as they made their way across the bay. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. Service lovely and food good. If I had one minor moan it was a lack of tea and coffee making facilities in the room! The gym was also good with a very helpful attendant and reasonably sized pool. But I'll be back,

Wonderful weekend at this hotel. Had only stayed for business prior but this time indulged. Got upgraded by joining their membership program. Was welcomed with cookies and milk and also got a beautiful corner room with sweeping views of the harbor. Service was great and room service, though pricey, was friendly, prompt and good. We ate breakfast at the hotel. One thing that isn't clear is that the buffet as laid out is not all their is. If you indulge in the buffet you can also get a made to order omelette or anything on the menu. Wish I had known because it's good!!! The location is walking distance to the aquarium and faneuil hall. also it is a quick cab to the newly developed seaport with all the restaurants (5-10 minute cab ride). Only two "complaints" - one is the doormen - couldn't be bothered to help with the luggage or open the car door. Seems they wish to stick to the hotel door and opening that. Not up to par with the level of service for the rest of the hotel. Fairly minor though as the driveway is right there. Second, one should note that parking is $40/night. But wifi is free!!! Also in case one looks to bring kids during the week, the pool has specific hours for kids in the pool. No limitations on the weekend.

This wonderful hotel goes beyond itself at each level of service. Beautiful, gracious and accommodating. Unexpected treatment even at this "hotel star" level. We had a deluxe harbor side king and it was large and comfortable. Love it. Thank you, great staff!

Easy walk to most places, though being on the waterfront does mean City periphery.

Room Tip: 10th floor or higher if on harbor

I really don't know where to begin - there's just so much right with this hotel. My family and I recently stayed for 4 nites in this location and it is first class. From the moment we stepped inside the lobby (which is breathtaking by the way) until our last day this hotel staff made us feel like we were their favorite guests. The restaurant staff, concierge (shout out to Ronnie), front desk, housekeeping, and gift shop staff were all wonderful and did their job with a standard of excellence. Our room was very spacious and always clean, and This hotel staff truly knows what it means to provide 5 star service and we will definitely be back!!

Initially I was booked in another Boston hotel for the week, however the web page misrepresented this other hotel which I will not name and which turned out to be dreadful. I stayed one night checked out and rang the Boston Harbour Hotel and made a second reservation. Wow was I lucky because they had availability. I could not rate this hotel high enough, the entire staff were fabulous, I wish I could replicate their level of training in my own business. The deluxe room was worth paying the extra for, it was like staying in a junior suite. The dinning experience both for breakfast and in the evening is exceptional; the food is delicious and the service 6*. Both my son and I enjoyed the health spa facilities every day and they were fantastic. The staff were very courteous and shows us round and explained how to get the most from our time there. The turn down service adds a sense of luxury to what can only be regarded as a perfect experience. I have never stayed in a hotel with so many well trained courteous, friendly and helpful staff and I experience many in various parts of the US and Europe. The

I look forwarded to returning to the Boston Harbour with my wife next time and will not trouble myself to investigate alternatives. I can only hope that the word does not spread too far and it becomes overly difficult to make another booking.

Room Tip: The Deluxe room is worth paying the extra for, I felt I was staying in a junior suite.
