“Great location near North End, Harbor”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

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.

Room Tip: I high floor away from the elevator is always my first request.

Our Summer in the City Entertainment Series is a great way to spend an evening in Boston and we are pleased that you were able to experience it. Our professionally staffed and fully equipped business center offers a full line of executive services and we do regret that your experience was not what you had expected. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back to the Boston Harbor Hotel at Rowes Wharf in the future and we thank you for sharing your experience with us.

Everything about this hotel was wonderful, beginning with a delightful water taxi ride from the airport to the hotel. What a view coming upon our hotel and the Boston skyline from the water. Our room was not yet ready due to our early arrival, however, the desk immediately called as soon as it was ready and had our bags delivered to the room for our return. Our room was quiet and spacious, with the most comfortable king size bed. What a delight to wake each morning to the sun glistening on the water with view of the harbor, complete with a variety of boats and planes taking off from Logan. All of the hotel was very elegant and pristine. I don't think the website did it justice. And every person we came in contact with couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The concierge desk got us Red Sox tickets, offered many suggestions, and assisted with transportation. The location offered a great spot to walk everywhere, along with the South Station T just two blocks away. We spent a lot of time just meandering along the harbor walk along the back of the hotel. The area was quite lively on a Saturday night, but not too noisy, just fun. We enjoyed a lunch and lite supper at the Sea Grill outside- fabulous food. I am trying to replicate the crab salad. The pool , although indoors, offered a quiet retreat to sooth after so much walking. This was our first trip to Boston and as I looked around at other hotel choices, I could not have been more pleased with our decision to stay at Boston Harbor Hotel.

Room Tip: Harbor View is worth the difference.

Everything about the stay was fabulous! We had a great harbor view room on the 12th floor. The room was clean, beds were soft with nice linens and the staff was very gracious. The only downside was the $47 valet fee. We would definitely stay here again.

My wife booked us a room here for our 25th anniversary. We got a city view deluxe room, breakfast, and chocolate covered strawberries for a fantastic rate! The property is right on the harbor. The staff could not be more pleasant and accommodating. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. This was our first stay at this hotel - it definitely will not be our last!

Stayed at this hotel for work four years ago and it's a really pleasant experience.

Reached hotel quite late in the evening and was glad the bar served supper.

My room was located on a high floor, with a clear view of the harbour. When I woke up the next morning, I was greeted by a really mesmerizing sunrise view right in front of my eyes, thanks to the unblock view from my room. Room size is good, with a small vanity corner for the ladies and a resting couch to slough into.

Didn't get to explore around but would definitely stay here again.

We spent the week end at the Hotel and really enjoyed the location. It is right on the water, walking distance to a lot of tourist attractions such as Faneuil Market, the north end etc...
We would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We loved our superior room with water views.
