Custom house combines historic charm with modern amenities. Stayed in a 17th floor room with sitting area and separate bedroom. Everything was very nice. Only improvement could be the TV and channel selection. It didn't have the usual cable setup where you select guide on the remote and search the channels. I could only click one channel at a time...

WE tried to get in here using Marriott points but couldn't. We were able to book a room for the weekend for cash. The rooms appear to be newly renovated and they are very nice. Great views of the harbor and city. The location is where the action is for much of the city's tourist venues. Staff, like all Marriott's,...

This was an excellent stay. Marriott did a fabulous job restoring an Historic building and making it a comfortable suite hotel. We were in a one bedroom unit on a high floor with a nice view toward the northeast. Rooms were clean and well furnished. Bed was very comfortable. We were on a timeshare exchange.

You can never really go wrong with a Marriott Vacation Club! It was our first time to Boston and this location is perfect- literally walking distance to most sites in the city! It's in a historic building and you must tour it. The observation deck is awesome also- day and night time views! The rooms are perfect for 2 people,...

We are owners here and this is a favorite stop. We own here and a few other places and we really enjoy this location. Convenient to the North End and great restaurants. Convenient to the "T" and two stops away from the airport so easy in and out.

Wow, just stayed 5 nights at Marriott Custom House - Boston, MA. Room was #2301 with a great view of the Harbor, Faneuil Hall & many great Boston jewels. Suites are big, plush & oh so comfortable. Very advanced reservations needed as just 84 suites! Enjoy.

Spent two nights in the Marriott Custom House. Although it's a timeshare property, we rented a room as a hotel (and there was never any pressure to consider purchasing). We had a great stay. Rooms are all suites--ours was on the 16th floor (I think) with terrific views. The bedroom (king bed) and living room (with sleeper sofa) both have...

Great service. Good location. Close to North End with its great dining options. Also close to the Blue line of the T. So you can get around fairly easily even with a transfer to another line. Rooms were comfortable and well appointed.

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.
