“The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2012

This hotel is like an oasis in the fast paced harbor area. The rooms are beautiful, the harbor views are stunning. The service is truely top notch, efficient and professional, yet respectful and friendly. This hotel is elegant, but not stuffy, and wonderfully quiet and calming, though only a few minutes from most of the tourist hotspots.

We recently had our daughter's wedding reception at the Boston Harbor Hotel. It was a joy to be there. We were given the best of care from beginning to end. The venue is gorgeous, the food was delicious, the waitstaff was efficient and thoughtful. Having accomodations at the hotel the day before and the day of the wedding made the experience more relaxing. There was time to rest and enjoy what the hotel has to offer, including an amazing view of the harbor.

Room Tip: The harbor view we had was fabulous, but grandmother had a beautiful room which she enjoyed that ove...

We stayed here for a recent family wedding. The room was huge and comfortable. All of the in-room amenities were great. The breakfast in the hotel restaurant was outstanding. We usually stay in more economical hotels so it was nice to feel pampered.

Heart of downtown Boston and on the harbour. Gorgeous property. We stayed there 2 years ago and I feel obligated to review now. One of our favourite hotel experiences. Small child care was fantastic. Close to the aquarium.

We went with our family and friends and it was perfect. The location was probebly the best part. The beds were really comfertable, the service was great, and it was a beautiful hotal! If you want a nice treat they have very good sorbet! They have a very nice pool and spa as well! It is close to some of bostons great attractions! On every floor they have great little canies to help you start your day! One thing that was really cool was, riding on a peddy cab looking at the beautiful arch! Everybody we saw was nice to the kids! They even gave the kids a little story coloring book! The second we called for the pull out coach to be made, they were in our room making it! Another thing that was great was the housekeeping, they were in and out of our room very fast! Everything about this hotal was great! I recommend this hotal to anyone!
