This hotel is very close to the North End and Faniel Hall. You can walk to everything easily. The rooms are spacious and very clean. We have stayed there 5 years in a row for the Boston Wine Expo weekend.

We had a great experience. Took Blue line T straight to hotel from airport. Literally right across the street. A couple blocks from Legal Sea Food, Chart House, both great restaurants. Walking to Fanuel Hall and wharf area. We had a city view and it was gorgeous with all the snow in the city. Good service, but I think we had a new person at desk, she was struggling a little, but another employee helped her out. All in all, we would definitely book again at this hotel.

Location is my first consideration. Quincy Market is just ONE block away! The hotel is reconstructed from one or some brick building(s). My partner's major is Architecture so he loved it very very much. Everything looks new in the room.

It was our 1st trip to Boston & we luckily found Harborside Inn. We chose it because of the price & thought it might be a good location. We guessed correctly because we were right in the middle of lots of Boston's attractions! The staff was friendly & very helpful with directions. The hotel was clean & we loved the spacious room. We will absolutely stay here the next trip we make to Boston!!

A perfect hotel. It's quiet, clean, wonderfully accommodating staff, and 24 hr coffee/tea in the lobby. All rooms are above the first floor by elevator. In the middle of the Financial District, with the T Line subway steps from the front door. Tour buses across the street, and walking distance to Little Italy northend, Quincy Square and Faneuil Hall, the Aquarium, State Buildings, and the wonderful Brady Pete's Restaurant. The food is OUTSTANDING. It's the place where business people from downtown go to lunch. We couldn't have found a more reasonably priced, convenient place to stay.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2010

This hotel made my experience in Boston a great one. The staff was very helpful. They allowed us an early check-in, and we even received a complimentary upgrade to a city view room. When you walk out the front door, you are steps away from a T stop. Also, the harbor, Quincy Market, and Faneuil Hall are very close by. Check-out was earlier than our flight departure time, so the staff held our luggage in a locked room while we went sightseeing. No matter how many times we asked them for directions, change, etc, the staff never treated us like we were and inconvenience.
