“Fine for 1 night for a wedding - but overpriced”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

Don't get me wrong - this is a nice, new hotel with many amenities, including (expensive) valet parking and good service, but I think for its location and usual purpose, it was WAY overpriced. Even with a wedding block discount. The wedding was held inside the hotel, and it just felt very canned, like there could've been weddings going on in all the other conference rooms at the same time. The area around the hotel is definitely growing and someday may be more of a destination like downtown Boston, but I think until then, I'd rather stay downtown for the money. What was good was that everything is almost new so it's very clean and modern and the room was very nice!

From the time we were picked up by a friendly, helpful driver of the shuttle van, until checkout, my wife and I had a great stay at the Harborside. We spent one night there on November 3rd before our flight to Orlando to meet our family flying in from Norway to visit Disney World.

At check in we were greeted by: "May I help our next guest?", a fresh and welcoming greeting. We had been put on the 15th floor and my wife who likes lower floors asked if we could be moved. Our most helpful front desk person, without hesitation, said there would be no problem, and immediately moved us to the third floor. Our room and bed were most comfortable with a fabulous view of the harbor and Boston.

We ate in the restaurant and the food and service was excellent. Our waiters were helpful, friendly, personable and efficient. During our meal, a gentleman came to our table and asked for our opinion about our experience at the hotel thus far. Wow!

We had the feeling that we were staying at a highly rated boutique hotel. Our room was one hundred dollars cheaper than a room at the Hilton where I have stayed three times without any friendliness or remarkable service.

I highly suggest staying at the Hyatt Harborside. We'll be staying there again.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a harbor view room.

I stayed for one night, bed is extremely comfortable, but just one disadvantage - I need to pay for Internet, which is not good for business travel.

Stayed here for 4 nights and the view over the harbor was stunning from our room 601 and the restaurant.
Bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious with a sitting area composed of small sofa plus two chairs.

Only problem during the stay was accessing the internet but this was resolved by calling their helpline.

Ate breakfast and two evening meals here and the chef really pays attention to the small details. Bread is made in house and the pastries at breakfast plus the granola were also excellent.

Water taxi is right outside but fares can add up quickly. Ask the hotel for a couple of free tickets!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with harbor view

Stayed at the Hyatt Harborside for two nights in a harbour view room on the third floor at the end of October (arriving on the day of the snow!). The room was great with all amenities, although a minibar would have been good, and such an amazing view of the city - for two first time visitors to Boston, what more could we ask for.
The staff at the hotel were extremely courteous, friendly and always willing to help. We got excellent travel advice from the concierge, the waiting staff in the restaurant were good and the front desk was also great when we requested an extra blanket late in the evening.
Although not in the centre of Boston, it was so easy to get the free shuttle bus to the T (subway) station and then just $2 a trip. On the way back just rang the hotel for a pick up at the station and the bus was there within minutes - fantastic!
Also try the indoor pool - a swim with a fantastic view of Boston!
Would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Always request a harbour view room unless you like airplane spotting.

The room accomodations were excellent. The room was clean and the magnificent view of the harbor was priceless. The front desk service was excellent in providing room information. The hotel is ideally located near the airport and airport blue line subway station. They even provide a free shuttle service to the airport and the subway station. The Boston Harbor water taxi station is located in front of the hotel. The cost of the water taxi is $10.00 one way and $17.00 round trip. The subway is $2.00 each way. I had used the "7 day Charlie Pass" which provided unlimited trips on the subway and buses. The cost for that was $15.00. The luxury was superior to others in its class.

Room Tip: Get a harbor view room!
