I was only at Harborside Inn for one night. The room was pricey for literally only showering and sleeping but the location was hard to beat. And much less than the large chain hotel at the harbor. Walking distance to absolutely everything but bring comfortable shoes! Many restaurant and bar options in the area too. The Harborside Inn is updating...

Great location in a great city. Walk to great tourist spots...North End, Quincy Market. T station right outside. Very convenient. And they are putting finishing touches on a new bar in the hotel. This property has free wifi, and coffee available at all times in the lobby. Very nice!

The Harborside Inn is in a fanatastic location. Surrounded by bars, and spitting distance from everything a tourist has come to see in Boston. The disappointing thing about the hotel is its tootal lack of atmosphere. It seems dull, almost dead. The staff are helpful enough but they don't really make you feel that welcome and fail to set the...

The location is fantastic, close to the Fanueil Hall area. We walked to almost everywhere that we wanted to visit. If you are travelling from Logan airport it is only two stops on the 'T' Blue line after a short initial bus ride from the airport terminal (included in the price of a 'T' ticket). The 'T' Aquarium stop is...

This was my third time in 4 years staying at the Harborside. The hotel is located so conveniently to Quincy Market, North End, Waterfront, and pretty much any other touristy spot you may want to see. It's great that you can walk every where, but the T-station is right outside the door and cabs are constantly driving past. The hotel...

We thought the Harborside Inn was a great find. We loved the location – steps from Quincy Market/Fanueil Hall (even though we don’t enjoy touristy areas) but it was our first time in Boston so we took it all in. T Station is right outside the door but we walked everywhere because we could – North End, Beacon Hill, Back...

We stayed here one night and the room was great for the price we paid. The room is a little small but its new and clean. Hotel is close to bars and restaurants which was great . They are opening a lounge in the lobby area ( it wasn't open when we stayed) and once it does this place will...

Horrible service! Staff was rude and arrogant. The hotel seems to be run by a bunch of hungover college kids who just don't care. In addition: No restaurant. No Bar. No concierge. Check-in was rude. No valet. No one offered to help me with my three suitcases. No one pointed me towards my room. No personality. Check-out was rude. Asked...

This was our second visit to the Harborside Inn. The last visit was about ten years ago. This was and still is a great hotel to stay during a visit to Boston. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. We stayed in an inside Queen room, and it was very quiet. No street noises heard. Liked the use of the...

The front desk staff was pleasant and helpful; the room was expensive, but not surprising for its big city location; mattress was comfortable; I think all guest rooms have only a Queen size bed, but I'm not positive because I am not on the website; location was walking distance to the subway (the T), which was just several steps outside...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
