Reviewed 17 June 2014

The view of Boston Harbor is beautiful (definitely request harbor view). The room itself lovely and inviting. The restaurant was excellent for both dinner and breakfast, and located only a few blocks from Boston's North End. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Definitely select a harbor view room

Stayed here for 4 nights on vacation. First time my wife and I have been to Boston. Hotel staff and amenities made a very good impression - although we didn't eat in the hotel so can't offer any opinion on the food.

Good location and no complaints at all ( other than the Boston weather not being kind to us !)

Ideally located on the Boston harbor, this hotel was perfection from start to finish. This is by far the nicest hotel we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Be sure to tell them when you are checking in if you are in town to celebrate - we returned from dinner in the North End (just a quick walk away) and they had set out complimentary pastries for our birthday celebration.

After leaving and returning a second time, slippers had been laid out on either side of the bed. Everything about this hotel is lovely and thoughtful. We have not stopped raving about it for a full month now. Finally, we ended our stay with brunch in the dining room. Gorgeous space, excellent service, and the food was divine.

This hotel is truly luxurious, without pretension. Just lovely.

I just don't get the price of this place. $600 per night for a $300 experience, the air conditioning is as loud as hell, the rooms are pretty standard and if you eat the calamari in the bar, be prepared to spend the evening with your head inside the big white telephone. I was expecting a lot more for the price and this place just didn't wow me at all.

Room Tip: make sure you are no where near the lifts

Please allow us to convey our deepest apologies that your recent stay at our hotel did not meet your expectations. We are very concerned to learn that your dining experience was far from what we strive to provide our guests. The seafood served at our bar is only the highest quality and we certainly do regret that your experience reflected otherwise. We would hope to have another opportunity to welcome you back in order to provide you with the exceptional experience you expect of our hotel. Thank you for your feedback.

We loved this hotel. I cannot say enough about how amazing this hotel was.The room was huge and had plenty of windows. It was difficult to choose between a room overlooking the harbor and one overlooking the city. We settled on a room overlooking the city. This was good for us because we were out all day and were only in our hotel at night. We had a beautiful view of the city with the lights. The food was excellent. We had room service a couple of times and ate in the restaurant. We also had the breakfast buffet and that was plentiful. The most important part was the people. Every single person we came across that worked here was very friendly and went out of their way to be of assistance to us. This is what a luxury hotel should be.

I am a loyal Ritz guest, but when I did my Trip Advisor review, the Ritz was a little down the list and the BHH was clearly at the top...and for good reason. Many hotels have terrific hospitality processes, others have great locations.... The BHH has both and is flawless in delivery.

First and foremost, the people. Unexpected weather issues brought me to Boston a day early. Although 95% committed, Daniel on the front desk was able to arrange an early arrival and managed to keep me in the same suite I had reserved for all 3 days. When I arrived (without luggage) at 2 am, Jimmy greeted me warmly and Josephine, not only streamlined my check in, but outfitted me with a complete set of complimentary toiletries and sundries so that I could make it through the morning. In moments, I was in a much needed, wonderful bed.

Staff is uniformly perfect. Sergio in bell services, the entire room service staff (15-25 minutes tops for breakfast EVERY day) and all of the front desk ladies and gentlemen. They even provided my 9yr old daughter with complimentary cookies (nut free on their inquiry) and milk, and me with fresh fruit and all the bottled water you can muster, complimentary. Wi-Fi similarly requires no cumbersome registration and was also complimentary. You pay for your room, tax and parking, (a little pricey at 47.00 for valet, but your on the Boston Waterfront). No nickel and diming and I appreciate that.

Room was terrific. Harbor view Rotunda Suite with a balcony. Expansive views across the heavily traveled harbor, and North city views across the Rotunda to Bunker Hill Monument and Quincy Market, which is a 5 minute stroll.

Location puts you in the heart of Boston.

The building and the location are enough to bring you to this property once, but the people and the process are what will keep me coming back.

Have fun!
