    Boston Harbor Hotel
    Boston, MA

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2168 reviewsTripAdvisor (2168)

    When it comes to this hotel, guests say its excellent waterfront location and elegant decor set it apart from nearby properties. And once you step foot in the Boston Harbor Hotel at Rowes Wharf, you'll see why. The lobby is decked out in marble and vintage chandeliers, while guest rooms overlook the city's beloved harbor. Accommodations feature flat-screen Smart TVs, complimentary internet access, marble bathrooms and rainfall showers. However, what keeps guests coming back to this impressive (albeit pricey) hotel is the friendliness of its staff. Some even say the Boston Harbor Hotel offers the best customer service in the area, and visitors particularly highlight the employees' professionalism and warmth. Plus, you'll have access to top-rated eats at on-site dining venues Meritage and Rowes Wharf Sea Grille. What's more, members of the iPrefer program can earn or use points when bedding down here.

    This Marriott – which participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program – receives high marks for its location smack dab in the middle of Boston. Guests loved that many of the city's top attractions were within walking distance of the hotel, so much so that travelers recommended future guests leave their cars behind (especially given the hotel's pricey parking fees). Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the New England Aquarium, the Paul Revere House and the Freedom Trail are all less than a half-mile from the hotel's doorstep. Business travelers appreciated the hotel's address as well for its close proximity to the airport (which is about 4 miles east). Accommodations here feature amenities common to Marriott properties, including flat-screen TVs, wireless internet (for a fee), iPod docking stations and coffee makers. To make the most of the hotel's location, visitors recommend booking a room with views of the water. If you can't upgrade, you can still enjoy harbor vistas from the indoor pool's floor-to-ceiling windows. The 24-hour fitness center or the library-style lobby lounge are also prime places to unwind and recharge. There is only one restaurant on-site, the Waterline, but travelers say there are plenty more options close to the hotel.
