My husband booked our stay at the Fairmont Battery Wharf as part of my 60th birthday celebration. He wanted something special, and it really was. We were booked in one of their King Corner rooms which was very spacious. (Our 3 adult daughters came by in the evening for a few drinks and there was no crowding whatsoever.) The bed...

Not that I stay in 5 star Hotels, but this one deserves a 5 star rating! The staff attended to every need, the room large and very nice. Food and drinks at the lobby bar were reasonable and the hotel is located in a PERFECT location!

Fairmont consistently goes over the top Battery Wharf location is no exception. It is conveniently located within walking distance of the North End and Quincy Market locations and has wonderful views of the harbor.

First, the location was perfect. You are right on the water and within walking distance to Little Italy and Quincy market. Second, every day we were there the level of service was consistent (regardless of the staff member). Finally, the rooms are clean. But I highly recommend the Gold building for the extra perks.

Every time we are in the Boston vicinity we see no reason to stay anywhere other than at the Fairmont Battery Wharf. This is our family's fourth stay and everything was as great as it was the first time. We were upgraded to a beautiful deluxe room. Same breathtaking harbor view.

Our stay was perfect. The location in the North End can't be beat. The rooms are spotless and the beds are very comfortable. The harbor view is breathtaking. Within walking distance to many Boston attractions. We will definitely be returning to the Fairmont Battery Wharf on our next trip to the city.

I was horrified by how dirty and old my room was when I checked in. So I called in a supervisor to come to the room. She agreed it was substandard and promised me a new room. When I returned to the hotel I was shown to my new room, which was a huge improvement. Staff were very helpful. However,...

We originally got a very nice room, right above the outdoor restaurant. However, the restaurant was very loud. In fact, I thought a window was open, you could hear everything so well. So we complained about the noise, because the restaurant went to 11:00 at night. They offered us another room, in a specialty tower, that offered more amenities --...

Wow! What a nice, quiet spot on the edge of the North End. My wife and I walked past this hotel a year ago and thought it was a great location so we stayed there for a long weekend this summer. First of all, the North End is the nicest "Little Italy" I've ever experienced. There are so many restaurants,...

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
