The hotel

A stunning luxurious hotel located on Rowes Wharf, one of the most historic in America with amazing views of Boston Harbor and some of the largest guest rooms in Boston and a reputation for superb customer service. The hotel is centrally located, in close proximity to many sightseeing attractions meaning you can leave that car behind. Its 80-foot arch and rotunda make it instantly recognisable as the gateway to the city. After a busy day sightseeing you can relax in the deluxe spa, work out in the state-of-the-art fitness centre or simply watch the yachts and sail boats glide along the harbour just feet from the hotel. Visit the excellent hotel restaurant Meritage and dine on the finest cuisine under a canopy of lights that mimic the starry sky. The signature arch is reflected in the interior with smaller arches punctuated with framed antique maps and the aroma of fresh flowers. The hotel acts as the gateway to and from Boston Harbour where international sailing events such as the BT Global Challenge call the Wharf home.

My husband surprised me with a stay at the Boston Harbor Hotel on a Friday night to celebrate my birthday. Parking in the garage was easy and discounted with our stay. The parking garage is connected to the hotel so we were able to bring our bags to the lobby without going outside, which was very nice on a cold day in February. The hotel staff was very welcoming and professional and was able to check us in early so we could start our mini-vacation right away. The room was large and very well maintained. We walked less than five minutes to the Boston Aquarium and then to Faneuil Hall market for a late afternoon snack. There are great restaurant choices in and around the hotel and we opted for dinner at the Rowes Wharf Sea Grill, which was also top notch. I would definitely recommend staying here for a special occasion or splurge getaway. Read less

We have just returned from the Boston Harbor Hotel having spent three nights visiting the area. The hotel is quite simply outstanding. Nothing is too much trouble. It is clean, friendly and welcoming. The staff could not do enough for their guests. Special mentions have to go: Angela on the Front Desk who happily organised a complimentary late check-out for us; Nathan at the Concierge desk who is the "Google" of Boston and directed us to exactly where we wanted to be, checking every detail for us; and Amanda, a server in the Rowes Wharf bar who gave us great tips for shopping at Lechmere! The hotel is on the edge of the harbour so not in the midst of everything that is going on. However, it is an easy ten minute walk to get to a variety of bars and restaurants. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a base to explore Boston. Read less

Wow - this hotel is beautiful! We had a gorgeous room overlooking the harbor. Husband was on a business trip and I tagged along. The location is outstanding for the North End and Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable and it's SO quiet - you don't hear a person at all!

Wow - this hotel is beautiful! We had a gorgeous room overlooking the harbor. Husband was on a business trip and I tagged along. The location is outstanding for the North End and Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable and it's SO quiet - you don't hear a person at all! Our room backed on to the elevators and you didn't hear a ping!!! Concierge is super helpful and the door men are worth their weight in gold to keep hoisting those double front doors open in that weather (we had snow, torrential rain, freezing wind and sunshine!) Loved it! Read less

So it’s a 4 diamond hotel. The problem is the spa area always had a hot tub. On my most recent visit - no hot tub , not good. I wonder how long before they lose the 4 diamond rating.....Not sure you can take ameneties away and still keep your rating !
