I arrived at the Hotel at 9 am with little expectation that I could get a room that early. Not only did the Hotel representative find me a room he allowed me to be upgraded to a harbor view room so I could have access to a room. Well done Staff was very professional. Room was fresh clean and spacious....

What a wonderful hotel. The service is friendly and first rate. Knowledgeable concierge staff. We opted for a superior harbor view room, the smallest type of room in the hotel, but very large compared to rooms available at other hotels. Fantastic view of the harbor (we were on the 10th floor) The air quality in the room, always an issue...

Any trip to Boston in greatly enhanced by staying at the Boston Harbor Hotel. If I could rate it beyond 5 stars, I would. Great location, an easy walk to most attractions and tons of restaurants and bars within close distance; everything else is a cheap uber ride. I stayed a week and it just could not have been better....

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.
