“Exquisite!”
Reviewed 21 September 2012

We stayed four nights at the Boston Harbor Hotel. The harbor view was breathtaking. The service was outstanding and most impressive was the attitude of the staff. They truly loved their hotel and this was evident from the moment we stepped in! The location was excellent for sightseeing on foot. We had breakfast in the dining room and via room service - both very positive as was supper at Meritage and drinks in the bar. I highly recommend the Boston Harbor Hotel.

Stayed only 1 night with my hysband and two kids but it felt like a week! The service and staff are amazing, kind, polite, helpful, always offering Fuji water, so nice! We were allowed to check in a little ealry so we could go over to a Bruins game, the concierge gentlman was great, as was the bell hop, and valet service... we settled into a spacious room with amazing views, the room was perfect! Dinner at the hotel was amazing, the pool and large hot tub area was a ton of family fun and room service breakfast the next morning was delicious, after my massage! Will definitely go back and highly recommend this hotel, well worth the money spent!

Room Tip: Request the view you prefer, city or harbor, we choose city and it was awesome!

Our second trip with our family to BHH, by far one of our favorite hotels. It is a haven within the city, close to all yet it's location on the harbor lends it a resort-like feel. The staff is attentive and very efficient and they really know Boston.

My husband & I splashed out on our last 2 days in Boston after a 10 day adventure & headed to Boston Harbour Hotel.... we were not disappointed! The service was faultless, the view spectacular & the location perfect. We also mentioned very briefly it was our anniversary & a gorgeous bottle of champagne & tasty treats awaited us on our arrival. The pool & hot tub are ideal after a day on your feet exploring the best Boston has to offer. This was a treat & as such had a high price tag especially as the Red Sox were playing the Yankees in Fenway that weekend. But I really loved every minute here & in our opinion it was worth it (my only gripe was breakfast was not included in the cost of the room!). Hats off to all of the staff front of house & behind the scenes for a memorable anniversary and a fantastic stay. Highly recommend.

Stayed here in a suite while in town. The long and short of it is that the hotel itself feels traditionally conservative (typical for Boston), but in execution it just comes off as a bit dated and stuffy. The rooms (and especially the bathrooms) feel small and cramped with dated marble and the tiniest bathtubs (forget about taking a bubble bath to relax!). The views were incredible though, so peaceful to look over the harbor. The service was also excellent.

They originally put me in a room right next to a service door, which kept me up for a good part of the night until I called and complained. Not sure why they would ever put anyone in that room (I forget the number), but stay away! They immediately (at 11pm) moved me into another room (a suite) on another floor. The room was not much different, except for a big sitting room with a couch and a vanity area. Disappointingly the bathroom and tub/shower was the same measly size as the former room.

I much preferred my stay at the intercontinental next door.

Room Tip: avoid the room near the service door

I have loved every single stay here. This hotel is luxurious and staff treats you very well. The views I have always had of the harbor are amazing. The room service food, while of course very expensive, has always been really good.
I love being able to just walk out and stroll along the water. Go here on a nice crisp fall day and just take a walk out.
Restaurants are within walking distance.
Beds very comfortable with quality sheets, etc.
