This was an absolutely excellent place to stay! A beautiful historical building converted to a suite hotel. Amazing harbor view from our room on the 14th floor, and even better views from the observation deck on the 26th.
There is also a well equippped fitness room on the 25th floor.
The suite was a 1-bedroom with kitchenette and a dining table with 4 chairs. The location is also excellent near Fanieul Hall and the harbor. There are also several T-staions nearby.
This was our first visit to Boston and we loved it. Can't wait to go back, and we will definitly stay at the Custom House again!

This was our first visit to Boston and after reading reviews of this hotel, decided to book in for a week. We were not disappointed.

Our room was on the 23rd floor and the views were breathtaking. The historical aspect of the hotel adds to its uniqueness.

The hotel is also in a great location and convenient to the subway, aquarium, Quincy Market, Faneuil Hall and The Freedom Trail.

We would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone and when we are back in Boston will do our best to stay here again.

Great place and in a great location. There is no food service but it was not a problem. It would have been nice to be in a higher room but we were not time share owners. Overall, we had an excellent time and would highly recommend it. We traveled by subway and could not have been in a better location.

Although I researched and read the previous reviews, I was still overwhelmed with this property. The building is a historical landmark and has a special feel to it because of its history and uniqueness.

It is the only Marriott timeshare in a big city. I cant emphasize enough what a great location this is, within steps of so many things. Quincy Market, with at least 25 restaurants is steps away. Subway stops, aquarium, children's museum, and many other attractions close by. Not only do you not need a car, you really dont want one ($36 parking fees).

I have stayed at 12 different Marriott timeshares and this one is really a gem. Although all of the rooms are only 1 bedroom (as opposed to 2) with a separate living and sleeping rooms, and dining table, the rooms seem so much bigger. They indicate 650 square feet, but I think ours was bigger. The kitchenette has a microwave, medium size refrigerator, sink and all plates and silverware (no stove).

Not only is every room a view room, I think many have two views because there are only 4 rooms per floor (4 corner rooms). Therefore, our living room had two huge windows facing one direction and our huge bedroom window faced another. It felt like a penthouse suite.

Usually, if I ever come back to a location, I try to stay in a different hotel to get a different experience. But if I ever come to Boston, I will do my best to stay here again.

The Marriott Custom House is the perfect base from which to explore historic Boston. The beautiful granite clad structure is part of that history and the tower is probably the city's most recognizable landmark standing watch over Boston Harbor. You can even take-in a historic actor role-playing in the regal "counting room" where armed sentries once stood on guard as tariffs and duties were tabulated. The Custom House was originally located directly on the harbor but centuries of development and landfill have added a few short blocks.

Boston is a walking town. Don't rent a car in the city unless absolutely necessary. Parking fees are outrageous and public transport abounds. We took the train from the airport to within a block of the Custom House. Even more fun was taking the water taxi back to the airport at the end of our week-long stay. We never missed not having a car including our day trips via train to the JFK Museum, town of Quincy and beyond. You can also take a ferry to Cape Cod.

The hotel consists entirely of (80) one-bedroom, hi-ceiling, well maintained (time share) suites with king bedroom and pullout in the separate living room. There is a dining table and the kitchenette is perfect for basic provisions and leftovers but not conducive to any real cooking. Countless restaurant options at every price point are within a few short steps of the property including Quincy Market right across the street and the Italian North End and Harbor districts just a bit further. The accommodations are perfect for a couple or business person's extended stay but will get a little cozy for a family of more than three or four. The only inconvenience is the dimly lit cave-like bathroom.

Included are some pictures of our suite and fabulous views from the north-east facing windows. (sorry, view images are not downloading--will try again later) You can experience 360 degree views from the outdoor walkout on one of the top floors.
