Due to a recent change in the ownership structure of our hotel, we can no longer make charitable donations of any kind. These changes have come about due to recent regulations governing grants and donations in the banking industry, and our hotel is now governed by these criteria.

We are finding new ways to give back to the community through Employee Community Engagement Programs and related activities. If you think that your organization could benefit from such a program, please let us know and we would be happy to consider the proposal.

Weekend away!


We had the best stay at the Boston harbor. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Always willing to help or do something for you. All you have to do is ask. We can't wait to go back. The hotel is within walking distance to really great restaurants. Boston Harbor will even make the recommendation and reservation. They have an awesome indoor pool and hot tub too.

Elegant comfort


My husband and I spent one night here for an anniversary getaway. This is one of those places where I might feel like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, walking in with my jeans and down jacket, BUT, the staff was so kind, courteous, and helpful, that I felt right at home. We were greeted warmly at reception and were able to check in early. Our room was simple, but elegant and comfortable, with an amazing view of the harbor. The hotel is also conveniently located, just a short walk from Faneuil Hall, the Freedom Trail, and other popular attractions. We didn't make use of many of the hotel's amenities, but every time we walked around, we were greeted by warm, approachable staff members. We were even surprised by an anniversary gift from the hotel - a delivery of delicious treats and bottled water. I'd recommend Boston Harbor for anyone staying in Boston!

Outstanding experience


We just returned from a 2 night stay at the Boston Harbor Hotel, which even exceeded our already high expectations. The Harborview Deluxe room we stayed in was beautifully appointed and immaculate, the view absolutely gorgeous and the location unbeatable. What however set the hotel apart from other great places that we have stayed it is the staff. Everybody from the bellhops to the concierge to the drivers of the complimentary house car (which is available within a 2 mile radius of the hotel) as well as the staff of the front desk and the room service personnel were extraordinary friendly and helpful and made that an amazing stay. We will be back.

Wow. I can't tell you how amazing this hotel is. Mind you, it was my first night in a 5 star hotel, but to say they go above and beyond is a major understatement. We spent one night in a king sized room overlooking the water. From the Valet and check-in, to housekeeping and the concierge, everyone was beyond accommodating and welcoming. All my thank yous (and they were never ending since I never lifted a finger) were replied with "My pleasure." They said it sincerely like it was their pleasure rather than something they were paid to say. We had just explored the room when room service came up with complimentary chocolate covered strawberries, cookies and a wafer in the shape of the hotel as a Happy Birthday gift. I truly felt like a queen as I ate them overlooking the water in that perfectly comfortable bed. From the linens to the toiletries to the robe and slippers - no details were overlooked. Breakfast downstairs the next morning was impeccable. This was by far the most impressive hotel I have ever stayed in and well worth the splurge!

Top of the world!


I don't think I have ever felt so pampered and welcomed in a hotel in my life! From the very first contact via email to the moment we reluctantly checked out, we felt like queens for a day! Jayme from Reservations bent over backwards to make our stay a special one. Our spacious room was breathtaking, the view so stunning we didn't even draw the curtains at night, we didn't want to miss a boat, plane or the sunrise which was spectacular. We even had a great bottle of wine waiting for us in the room to greet us! The bed was super comfortable, there was plenty of hot water with good water pressure too and we were on the 15th floor. We got room service for breakfast and it was delicious with lovely little surprise smoothies on the table too. Even though we missed the reopening of the spa after renovations by just a day or two, we left feeling as relaxed as if we had spent our two days in a spa. My only suggestion is electrical outlets near the bed, so one can use their antique MacAir that has a nearly dead battery after 30 minutes while sitting in bed. Room 1512 - impressive view, quiet, at the end of the hall. One of the PURE non-allergenic rooms. If I could give the BHH 10 stars I would!

Amazing hotel and service


This hotel is by far one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at! They went above and beyond for us, even providing a crib, stroller, baby bath, and baby toiletries for us to use for our child for our stay. The concierge helped us with any questions we had and even printed out information for us. Our flights were delayed due to weather and they allowed us to check in early and check out late which really helped us out so our child could take a nap. The hotel room was gorgeous and very spacious and clean. We loved the city view from our room. The hotel is close to many great places such as the aquarium and children's museum. Do not hesitate to stay here, they are the best! Thanks for a great stay in the wonderful city of Boston!

Going to make it an annual event.


I spent just one night at this lovely hotel in the middle of our horrid winter. It was a bright spot in an otherwise gray and dark season. My niece and I stayed the night, another niece joined us for dinner in the nearby North End. We have already decided this needs to be an annual event where all three of us stay over and enjoy everything about this classic hotel.

We enjoyed a plush and comfortable room, with gracious and attentive service from the front desk, to room service, to turn-down service, to kind and helpful doormen. It's a quick cab ride to the North End, where we enjoyed a lovely meal. (On a warmer night, it would be a nice walk, but not when it's 11° outside!) 

The wonderful harbor view from our room meant I barely slept, there was so much to look out on: ferries, ships, airport traffic, the lights on the water, a beautiful sunrise the next morning. Entertaining! In-room breakfast was deluxe and delish. 

While this winter getaway will become an annual affair with my nieces, I also plan to go back in better weather to truly enjoy the hotel's proximity to the waterfront area - the back patio, access to the Harborwalk, more boats to see. This prime location is key, of course; add in the high-quality service and amenities, and it was an outstanding hotel experience.

This is the perfect hotel for a trip to Boston. Very beautiful. True colonial/Boston feel. Beautiful views from Sea Grille Restaurant and from those rooms facing the waterfront. Staff throughout the hotel were gracious and attentive. They know your name and anticipate your every need. The doorman, Joseph, by far really made our trip more enjoyable. He was knowledgeable on the area and extremely cordial. A very pleasant man. This hotel is a fabulous location for visiting other Boston neighborhoods and attractions within walking distance... Faneuil Hall, North End, New England Aquarium, Legal Seafood Restaurant, Ye Olde Union Oyster House (a long time Boston tradition). Another plus is it's convenience to the airport by taxi or water taxi.
