I traveled to Boston mid-July with my 2 little kids. When I called this hotel to make a reservation, I was told "this is not a place for children". I booked the room online anyway, as I could get a deal for $179 whereas Marriott across the street charged $400+. And I was glad I did. It was exactly what...

My husband and I came to Boston for a spur of the moment long weekend. We stayed at the Harborside Inn for two nights in a Queen Room with City View. We paid $179 a night. I choose the hotel based on location and price and it did not disapoint. We were right in the center of it all, seconds...

The hotel location is perfect close to the Quincy Market right in the middle of Boston, close to the freedom trail and the harbors. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are very large. We had a king size bed and lots of space in the room. The hotel does have a parking but they have a special rate...

Paid almost $300/night (which is probably normal) and location could not have been better. Staff was friendly. Place is being renovated, so hard to judge looks-wise. I did have an issue with the bed frames, which are covered by the bedding but are quite sharp (metal on wood, jutting out with a harsh corner). I banged my shin on a...

Best things about this hotel are location, friendly staff, great bathrooms, and clean rooms for a great price. If you don't need all the extras like restaurant and gym, etc, this is the place for you. We had a cityview room but starting on the 6th floor, you cant look out the window without standing on a chair, so that...

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.
