We were given room 1401 with a city view. The room was huge with two beds, large windows (one a bay), great linen, and a well appointed bathroom. We spent a terrific hour overlooking the Harbor listening to the band on the Blues Barge - the area was packed but we were able to find a place to stand and have a cocktail. The concierge Ronnie, pointed us toward a couple of great restaurants and local stores to pick up some forgotten items. We self-parked next door - the elevator takes you to the hotel lobby. Not sure how the price compares to valet - you may want to ask. Starbucks is right next door. At $500/night, the Boston Harbor is certainly not economical, but its location, genuine staff and lovely rooms made it palatable. My only concern is the Business Center (located through the gift shop). I had to print out a 30 page document and was surprised to find out that after 10 or so pages, the hotel charges something like $.75/page. Seems a little picky given the cost of staying there. Probably not the best place to stay if on a business trip.
