We priced out hotels in Boston and this was certainly on the cheaper side for Boston. For what we paid (comparatively for the Boston area), we thought the hotel was very nice. We had a city view room and it did not feel small. It wasn't huge, but it was big enough for a couple of nights. The location is...

Rooms are the size of a room youd find in amsterdam or london. Some rooms dont even have a window looking out which is crazy as it made the room really really cramped and small. For the price you pay, we expect more than a motel like place. Totally unrecommended.

I decided to break from the meeting recommendation and stay here. I mostly stayed here because of the ease of access to the subway system, because of the proximity to major attractions (the Quincy market and Faneuil Hall) and the proximity to some great restaurants. As I was travelling on business, I stayed in a courtyard view room and, apart...

I attempted to cancel my reservation due to an impending storm which was sending me home early. I contacted the hotel and was told there was no manager on duty and to call back the next day. The next day they would not honor the cancellation due to the weather and charged me the full rate. Next time I'll stick...

A quaint older hotel right downtown on State St in the heart of Boston. You are only a few minutes from the Freedom Trail and can walk it to see most of the the historic sites in the down town area. There are plenty of great restaurants near by including the famous North town historic Italian area. We did lunch...

We stayed for two nights in a king atrium room ie no exterior view. This meant the room was slightly dark but otherwise we were happy with it. The room was a very good size, the bathroom had a great shower, was modern and well appointed. No tea or coffee making facilities in the room but there was round the...

This little hotel was the perfect little get away for my husband and I. We loved it and will stay here again! It was clean, comfortable, artsy. I am a bit of a Germ Freak and I did not find anything to complain about. The bathroom is a bit small but it was fine. The staff was very nice and...

I recently stayed here over presidents day weekend and I thought the hotel was great, very clean and the staff were all very nice. I had an interior room which made sleeping in easy, the bed was very comfortable. Although the room was not very large it wasroomy enough for two people. The next time I'm in Boston my boyfriend...

I came to the Harborside Inn for a three-night business/personal stay and ended up staying four nights because I got caught in the blizzard of 2013-Nemo. The hotel staff members (young, friendly, helpful) were so nice about everything, including about extending my stay for an additional night at the same rate i was paying for the first three nights when...

I loved this hotel in Boston. The location makes it perfect for eating in the north end or Quincy market. Because it is on the blue line you do not need a car to get around the city. The harbor is across the street and walking is a must to visit all the area landmarks. Hotel is clean and has...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
