My husband and I enjoyed our overnight stay at Harborside. We chose the Cabin...lower level with no windows. Clean and well appointed. The King size bed was very comfortable and everything we needed was there. Its location was perfect for walking to Quincy, Aquarium and North end restaurants, bakeries and cute stores. The challenge was the parking garage, but all worked out well. The hotel staff were knowledgeable and offered many suggestions for dinner choices.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, THE CABIN was perfect!!

We arrived late in the evening Saturday night and we were able to park our car right out front while we checked in with our bags. The nice gentleman out front Jarod who we say multiple times during our stay was very friendly and efficient. After asking if we had been to Boston before and what brought us here, informing him we were here for my boyfriend's birthday, he offered him 2 complimentary drinks and wished us a good stay and happy birthday :) I heard bostonians were nice and friendly but this was a great start. We even saw him a couple times on the street and he said hi :)
The hotel and room was all we needed; clean, spacious with a safe. They also had AC which was a saviour since we were there during 40C+ weather. The bathtub was a bit small but it did the trick.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Harbourside and we'd definitely stay there again. It's close to Quincy market and all kinds of restaurants. It's in the financial district so they're not open too late but we were able to find one open past midnight that wasn't a bar/dance club.

Room Tip: We said in the inner garden so it was quiet.

We love the 2 night stay at this hotel, we have the City View room. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is very nice and clean with huge shower. We love Starbucks located inside the lobby of the hotel to get some snack and coffee for breakfast. It is walking distance to all activities and the subway stop is in front of the hotel.

Great location and staff. Great room. But a bar that's near deserted, an in house Starbucks breakfast only, soap is the limit of bedroom toiletries ! all give the hotel a soulless feel. High priced. Look elsewhere, compare and decide what you need

Stayed there one night in a downstairs cabin. Room was clean and comfortable. Great locatoin near Quincy Market. Parking available for a fee 2 blocks away in a garage which was not a real big hassle. Would stay again.

We had a room with the atrium view which was a little strange wanted to change to a room with a window looking outside but they were so small with a queen bed no room at all. The location is fantastic to Quincy Market the Aquarium all a few minute walk. Hanover street is a 6 minute walk to get to Little Italy and love it there.. Plenty of places to sit Al Fresco for dinner and a few drinks. We just love Boston and would recomend this hotel. The only thing that we didn't care for was the homeless people that stayed right next to the front door enterance not what you really want to see.. so great hotel great front desk service not a bad thing to say. Bars are all walking distance so that makes for a fun night..

Room Tip: rooms are small with the queen beds atrium rooms all have a king and they are big but strange to not...
