“Wonderful”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

It was a wonderful experience! The rooms were very comfy and clean. For my son's birthday they brought apple cider and a dessert plate. The service was spectacular! I would definitely stay here again! The concierge gave excellent restaurant and attraction recommendations. The pizza place they recommended was fabulous. The pastry place in little Italy is a must try!

When we first arrived the staff was super friendly and attentive. By the evening that had definitely decreased. The room was nice. Nothing overly fancy. You pay a premium to stay in Boston. I get that. The bed was something to note. It was very comfortable! The room service prices were high, but again, any major city will be. The pool is fantastic. They have special hours for kids. The bar staff is rude and not at all accommodating. I would suggest going to an area bar where they will appreciate your patronage. Overall, I would say it was a good stay. I don't think I would seek out this hotel again if there was an area hotel with a bit cheaper price for what we got.

We can't say enough about our wonderful stay at the Boston Harbor Hotel. The beautiful room overlooking the harbor, the luxurious bedding, the robes and slippers, the welcoming staff in every area of the hotel, the lovely traditional decor and delicious meals...this is five stars in every sense of the word. We won't stay anyplace else in Boston!

Top class in every way: location, welcome, ease of reception, room size, view, food, friendliness of staff. Really difficult to find any fault with this excellent hotel which is in one of the best locations in the city. Really enjoyed and will return.

The hubby was there on business and I tagged along. It was a fantastic hotel with a lovely view of the Boston Harbor. I'm a nutty clean freak in hotels. I prefer to not see any evidence that the room has ever been used by anyone but me, and my compulsions were well-satisfied on this stay. Beds were comfortable, though the pillows are rather flat. Service was impeccable all around without being overbearing. Room service breakfast was tasty and prompt.

All that having been said, I wouldn't have stayed there if it had been my choice. Boston is a walking city and every day I was there I found that my destinations for shopping and site-seeing were farther away than I would have liked. While the view over the water was nice, there wasn't much life to speak of. Also, I felt oddly underdressed in my yoga pants, hoodie and baseball hat in the lobby on my way out for a walk, as if my attire wasn't up to snuff for the blue bloods congregating outside the elevators. My husband and I hit the bar on a Wednesday night in what I felt was appropriate "bar attire"... dressy jeans and trendy heals, nice cardigan, etc, and I felt out of place both in terms of my dress and my age (I'm 39).

Next time I visit Boston I'll probably book something more central. This is by no means a slight to the Boston Harbor Hotel... it's a top notch hotel... just not for me.

I stayed at the BH Hotel the first weekend of May 2014. We were able to take a water taxi from the airport which was a fun way to see the City/Harbor. As for the hotel, it exceeded my expectations. Everything about my stay was great. FRom the doormen who open the front doors to greet you back to the hotel, to the food in the restaurant to the location, I was very happy with my stay. This is definitely a business-person hotel despite the basement pool and spa.

What a gorgeous hotel! After a three trips to the 14th floor, I finally got into my own room. Everything about the room said luxury. large comfy bed, fresh linens, fancy toiletries, marble bathroom. I was upgraded to a water view, and just sat watching the planes, helicopters and boats for a while to decompress from the travel. (Bonus - tasty hard cider in the mini bar only $6!)

Staff couldn't be more helpful. I bought a ticket from the concierge to take the water taxi to the airport ($10). It takes longer, because you also need to hop an airport bus to the terminals, but on a beautiful, sunny day it was worth the time. (Avg. cab ride is $30).

Would love to stay next April for some conferences i need to attend, but at $450/night, not sure my company would approve!
