My wife and I absolutely love the Custom House. We've been staying there for well over a decade and during just about every time of the year. The location really can't be beat (although it is a bit more of a challenge for the next two years because the Government Center stop on the MBTA is closed and so although the Aquarium stop on the Blue Line is just a few steps away, you often need to make transfers to get where you want to go that are less convenient than they had been).
The staff is welcoming, friendly, and exceptionally helpful. There are many nice amenities including excellent entertainment in the evenings in the historic Counting Room (where customs were collected accounting, at one time, for 20% of the revenue of the United States). Each of the rooms is essentially a suite with a master bedroom, bathroom and a living room/dining room/kitchen. But because of its location, the "kitchen" is small--there's a small sink, a small refrigerator and a microwave (along with glasses, dishes and utensils). However, many people would not expect to cook at all. There is continental breakfast available in the Counting Room (the coffee and tea are free throughout the day) and there are innumerable restaurants within a few blocks of the Custom House including restaurants in the famous North End and in the Fanueil Hall Marketplace which is just steps away. There are excellent views of the harbor and of the Marketplace and North End and beyond from many rooms and the observation deck on the 26th floor is a gem. The staff offers excellent tours of the building itself that include attention to its long and storied history.
