We couldn't be happier with our choice of hotel for our stay in Boston. As soon as we pulled up we were greeted by friendly welcome. Our car was valet parked (for $44 per day) and our luggage was taken care of. The front desk staff were very friendly and the porter was the nicest, most helpful and informative we've met. Our room was on the 9th floor and we were stunned by the incredible view from the window. The room was very nicely furnished and there was everything we needed.
We will definitely stay here again and would recommend it based on our experience.

My husband and I stayed in a room overlooking the water and another family member stayed in a suite overlooking the water.

Both rooms were clean, bright, relaxing, quiet and offered everything we needed.

This hotel is certainly something above what my husband and I stay at, but since family was treating we were thrilled to have the chance to stay here.

We dined in the restaurant for lunch upon arrival and had wonderful clam chowder and sandwiches - still one of the best vegan wraps I've ever had. The service in the restaurant was fine, but the cost was a little high for what it was.

We had cocktails in the bar one night and watched the football games and it was quiet, comfortable and a nice place to enjoy time together.

Room Service was accommodating to everything we needed the few times we ordered and were very punctual.

The bathrooms were very clean, the linens pristine and the staff so nice. Doors were always held, anything we needed the desk helped us with and those things made the overall experience fantastic.

The bed was so comfortable and one of the best sleeps I've ever had.

If you're splurging, stay - it's so nice. You won't regret it!

I have stayed at the old Ritz, the new Ritz, the Four Seasons, XV Beacon, and now the Boston Harbor Hotel. The first room they gave me did not have quite the expansive view I expexted. After a quick switch to one more in the center of the 8th floor I had a great stay from beginning to end. The shower/tub was not five star, but the rest of the room was very nice. The spa/pool/fitness center is top notch. We held a business function in the Atlantic room. Great food an amazing views all day long. The location is also perfect for walks along the Harbor and Greenway. The architecture of the hotel is award winning for an urban setting. Happy to go back any time.

I visited the Boston Harbour form London with my wife for a joint anniversary/birthday celebration.
From my initial contact with the concierge 6 months before my trip until the day we left ,we received a 5 star service from the exceptional staff.
Yes, a seperate shower would be nice, yes the fire closer on the heavy doors can make a bit of a racket, but would that really spoil the experience when the quality of the hotel, it's staff and it's location are weighed against it? It's the public who let the doord slam, not the Hotel.
We intended to try a different place to eat each night, but such was the quality and ambience of the public rooms and restaurants at the Boston Harbor we only ventured further afield on 2 nights of our 7 night stay.
I have travelled the world on businsess and pleasure by I have never experienced the level of professionalism, knowledge and courtesy offered the Concierge team. Nothing was to much trouble and their knowledge of Boston and what it has to offer was outstanding. The same can be said of the door staff who witout exception were friendly ,helpful and always went the extra mile.
A special thankyou to Nathan and his team who made our visit so special.

The views from our three superior harbor rooms on the 8th floor were either partialy or completely blocked and cost considerably more.
None of the rooms had a seperate shower, the tub was small, the mini bar was unstocked, and even the manager would not bring a self serve coffee pot to our room.($14.00 for rs coffee)
After arriving in the room we thought we heard gunshots in the hall but after investigating it was nearby room doors closing, Whenever any door closed on the floor the loud boom could wake the dead, For whatever reason none of the doors had simple weather stripping. Save your money stay somewhere else.

We recently stayed here for 4 nights under the AMEX Fine Hotels & Resorts package. Service was outstanding. We stay in a lot of very nice hotels worldwide and would rate this as among the top. Service, especially the concierges, was top notch. Was upgraded upon arrival and the room was spacious, clean and well appointed. Our room a located next to the elevator shaft and caused a bit of a vibration as the cars went by, but nothing that kept us up, main traffic was during the day.
