Reviewed 11 June 2014

This a standard first class modern hotel. Everything is very efficient and slick. The decor is modern and the room was quite spacious for Boston and very clean. The foyer always smelled particularly nice... The location is very good as we managed to walk everywhere we wished to go. Also one of our favorite restaurant happens to be virtually opposite (Maggiano's). Car parking is available next door but is rather expensive as anywhere in Boston. Staff were efficient and helpful.

Room Tip: Pick a high floor for reducing the noise from the street.

Stayed with the family while touring the north west; and was one of the top highlights for all of us. A Room with a view is what this hotel is all about, as is the rooms and food.

Very convenient location for great walks and downtown access too.

We almost ended up staying at a more known international brand but we're very pleased we chose the Boston Harbor.. truly wonderful...

Friendly welcome. Great rooms with view over Boston Harbor. Location for walking along the harbour. Rooms clean and comfortable. Go and see. Breakfast either has a buffet or a la carte. Very friendly and pleasant service

The reviews are 100% accurate. Our hotel stay was perfect. Everyone was extremely nice and accommodating to all our needs. The room was large and our 18 month old son loved looking out the window at the city views. We requested a crib in our room and it was in the room when we arrived decked out with Winnie the Pooh bumpers, sheets and baby supplies. I spent a lot of time researching hotels in the area and went back and forth. After looking at the other hotels I was considering, I am so glad we picked the Boston Harbor! Great location & everything was great!!

During our last visit a few years ago, we had very noisey neighbors and an unpleasant stay. I told the front desk manager that we would respectfully request a QUIET, NICER room. WOW, did they ever deliver! The room was gorgeous, had a view of the harbor on two sides and was very large. We had free WiFi, and dined in the restaurant, loved that too. It was so comfortable that I didn't want to leave. We will return soon!!!

We checked in today as a special family trip as well as for our 25th wedding anniversary. Check in went smoothly and we were given a room with a city view on the 8th floor.

My husband called the hotel in advance to inform them of our special day and there was no acknowledgement from the staff or any treat delivered as I've read in many of the reviews here. My hubby sweetly ordered a bottle of wine and a fruit tray. The wine is delicious but the fruit tray consisted of a banana, an orange, two dried apricots and an apple with a huge bruise.

The room is of good size and our daughter is using the sofa bed. The furnishings are lovely. She says the the sofa bed is just "ok" and a little hard.

The tv reception has been spotty. A good portion of our evening has been with no service. I'm guessing trouble with the satellite?

The bathroom is of good size. There is a sitting area with a large mirror. The shower was good with plenty of hot water. The toilet has been flushing on its own every hour or so and we will notify the front desk tomorrow morning.

My main surprise is how thin the walls are. I can hear our neighbors conversation quite clearly and could hear everything that was going on in their bathroom from ours. Even conversations in the hallway are easily heard.

I'm hoping that our next two days provide us with an enjoyable experience and that we can rest well and enjoy all that Boston has to offer.

Stayed: June 2014
