We arrived in Boston several days after Winter Storm Nemo hit the East Coast. It was amazing how the tarmac at Logan Airport was clear and no snow accumulation visible. I had called the hotel to get a feel for the aftermath of the storm and was advised by a representive the walks around the hotel were shoveled and it really was not all that bad. We took the airport shuttle bus to the Boston MBTA subway. We purchased a Charlie Card and took the Blue Line 2 stops to the Aquarium station. Had we paid more attention to the signage it is possible to emerge just steps from the Hotel entrance. We took the exit across the street and came out right by Quincy Market. The Marriott is just across Atlantic Avenue and near many of the top sights in Boston.
The hotel is kind of a similar shape to the South Market Building and has a modern atrium style interior. Check-in was easy and they welcomed afternoon guests with an assortment of cookies. We had a room on the 5th floor with a view of the water and facing the North End. The beds were super comfortable and the bathroom was nice and stocked with several sets of towels. The bathroom doors were a little different and swung out to open.
We had access to the concierge lounge on the 7th floor and went up for the appetizer and dessert service. The lounge consists of two rooms with great views of the Harbor.
They had a couple of computers and a printer for guest use. The breakfast is also served in this room and we enjoyed both meal offerings.
Just across the street from the hotel you can find Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the Hard Rock Cafe, Customs building and lots of shopping. We want to come back in Summer or Fall and explore more of Boston. We quickly determined on this visit the Marriott Long Wharf would make an excellent base of operation in Boston.
