“Terrific Location and Pleasant Stay at Marriott Long Wharf”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We stayed here for a portion of our Spring Break prior to Easter using our Marriott points to book adjoining rooms on the fifth floor. Rooms were well appointed, the staff very helpful (the concierge desk was instrumental in directing us around town and gave us several excellent restaurant recommendations), the view was wonderful of the aquarium and the bay, but most importantly, the location was the best. We took the subway from the airport to the aquarium station, and the hotel is just a few feet from the subway stop. Access to the subway allowed us to go all over Boston with ease! The hotel is also a short walk from Faneuil Hall and the Freedom Trail. It really felt as if we were in the center of all that we wanted to see and do! Only downside to the hotel, is the design of the hotel rooms around a central atrium funnels the noise from any large group dinners in the ballrooms/conference rooms up through the floors. This makes the halls fairly noisy while the dinners are going on, but it was NOT a problem in the room. I would check about whether they allow live bands for wedding receptions on Saturday nights as this might make the noise reach an unacceptable level. Would stay here again for the staff, location, and the usual comforts of a Marriott property.

Nice location,but just a so so hotel and experience. The bar area is small and always jam packed,room was very average. I do appreciate hotels that have outlets right near the bed,in this case right at the base of the lamp.Everything was very,very average.

I found the stay here rather comfortable, even though I didn't get the best room, which I rarely do.
The room was clean and tidy, but you can tell it's been around for a time.
What I found good is that there´s a Starbucks at ground level, so you can get decent coffee and a very basic breakfast. The hotel breakfast is really good, but in my case it wasn't included and it cost a mind staggering $25. There's other places for breakfast in the surroundings too.
The gym is alright and you’ll find equipment for your basic needs.
Location is great and if you’re lucky, you’ll get a view out of the waterfront. Not that I looked at it that much, but it adds to the feeling of the room being better than it is.
The staff is friendly, but that is expected and does not affect my grading in either way.

The downside is that awful carpet in the corridor. So thick and soft that pulling your bag is a gym session. I had the room at the end of the long corridor....
The bar close earlier than one would expect. I travelled with a group of people that didn’t mind a nightcap. Here location plays a vital role, there’s a lot of pubs in the surroundings.

I’d stay here again if I travelled with my family, but for business I might choose something else next time.

Room Tip: As always, try to get a room towards the waterfront and one would expect the view to better the high...

Green Features: Average. The basic towel stuff... nothing else. One would expect a little more from Marriot.

Thank you for your review of our hotel. Yes, we have just installed new carpet in our corridors and it is extremely plush. I am sure we can provide you a room closer to the elevator for your future visits for your convenience. Hope to see you again soon.

Good location, nice bar/reception area but very bland accommodation floors and rooms. It will never set your world alight. As an advertised conference type of hotel, it is pretty poor. Bar closes at 12:00. If you are a bland and dull company/organization, host your event here, you'll fit in great!!!!!!!

Beautiful hotel in a perfect location. All activities are around there. We took the water taxi from the airport which takes you right at the hotel. Very large room. We had 2 days pre-cruise. We toured Boston with the old trolley, great way to get around, buy your tickets on line.

EXCELLENT location for visiting Boston. Mere steps to Quincy Market, Fanueil Hall, many bars and restaurants, and a short walk to the north end. Located right next to the aquarium, harbor, and a T station is located right outside of the entrance. All tourist attractions can be purchased right outside of hotel as well. Friendly & efficient staff. Rooms are brand new and very clean. The room does not come with a mini-fridge, it comes with a fridge-like cooler, but you can call the front desk for a mini fridge for no extra charge! Prices are more on the expensive end to stay here but the location does not get better than this, especially if you are visiting Boston for the first time!!
