We had a wonderful week stay during Christmas 2013! The staff were wonderful and courteous! Rooms were large and spacious with wonderful views of the Boston Bay. Only complaint would be the heating fan in the rooms was noisy but we did get use to it after a few days. We would love to go back during the summer! Not a better location to so many key areas of Historic Boston!

This is the second time I have spent a a week here-we have a timeshare. This time we were on 23rd floor and perfect during the snowy week. Fantastic views of the city. We had left the car home as we could walk everywhere-North End, Nutcracker Ballet, Boston Tea Part reenactment, window shopping, eating, Faneuil Hall area -we are looking down on the Imax and Aquarium, and the waterfront. ALL the help and staff are very friendly. Karen, the concierge was the best!! There are many activities for adults and children at the hotel and that was good with the snow piling up outside. I look forward to going back!!

Room Tip: they are all good-every one has fantastic views!! Also, washers and dryers are included

I live only 100 miles from Boston but I like to overnight here occasionally. I love the historic charm of this building and the spacious 2 room units with great views. It's fun to go up to the top outside deck for a 360 degree tour. The clock tower is a Boston landmark. The staff is very accommodating. Although this is a timeshare property it is fairly easy to rent a unit by the night. Nice workout room, the "counting room" is a relaxing spot for a cocktail or a light breakfast. Some people might not like that there is no restaurant on the premises, no pool. But the pluses far outweigh that. And if you want to dine in, walk to Quincy market and bring back some goodies and heat them in your little kitchenette. Easy walk to the North End for Italian dining. Right next to the greenway; there is even a large outdoor labyrinth 2 blocks away where you can walk and meditate right there in the city.

Room Tip: Best views face east and north.

A beautiful and unique historic property. The staff is amazingly helpful. Perhaps most important is the location. Steps from the T, New England Aquarium, the North End, Fanuiel Hall, and TD Garden.

Rooms are well appointed, most seem to have a reasonable view. Upper floor common amenities are a nice touch and include laundry, a movie theater and a gym.

Overall a solid place to stay!

We have stayed here four or five times in the past 10 years--and will continue to visit. For us, this wonderful building is available as a time share for a week. If you intend to stay here as a hotel guest, the price is higher--but you may well feel it's worth it. The Custom House (aka The Clock Tower Building) is a beautiful piece of historic architecture; the one-bedroom suites are comfortable and very handsome; views in every direction are excellent; the staff is friendly and helpful; the Aquarium T stop is directly across the street; there are good restaurants nearby; Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market are only a block-and-a-half away. The location would be very hard to beat. We love it.

Conveniently downtown location. Walking distance to many attractions and places of interest. Literally across the street from Fauniel Hall and Aquarium T station. Great views of Boston and harbor.
Hotel staff very helpful and pleasant.
Would definitely stay here again and again.

I stayed here for a week and I must say anyone visiting Boston for the first time this location is the best! Right in the centre next to the tube and 100 yards from the city and waterfront .The staff are so pleasant and welcoming it feels like home except for one thing ,housekeeping , we feel our room was not cleaned to the standards expected at a Marriot so have to downgrade our score from a 5 to a 4
