I researched hotels and cities for a year, and chose Boston for our honeymoon. The Boston Harbor Hotel seemed like it had everything we wanted; Great location for sightseeing, beautiful views of the harbor and luxurious accommodations. The hotel ended up having all of these great amenities, but...
I am in my late 20's and my husband in his early 30's, both very relaxed people who enjoy a quiet evening in, we aren't partiers by any means. We were hoping to have a romantic week in a beautiful hotel, and were disappointed to find that this hotel was very stale as far as a romantic atmosphere goes. It was filled with business people; we didn't see any other couples staying in this hotel. All of the guests were bustling around with their brief cases and on their cell phones. We wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for what we were looking for- A warm and romantic atmosphere.
It's a perfect hotel for people on business or maybe even for a ladies weekend. Couples stick out like a sore thumb, and very obviously not the hotel's main concern.
P.S. Do not stay here if you have a pet allergy, as they allow pets to stay in the rooms, and do NOT do a good job of cleaning the pet hair, even if you request a deep cleaning (Clumps of cat hair on the chair)
